    I kept my bike parked for 24hours and started it on Monday morning. It got started at once. [emoji3581]
    Now, my concern is, its okay to remove those accessories from battery coz I am not going on long rides but I will need them later. So will it drain battery again ? Also will installing an in line switch (as you suggested earlier) solve this problem ?
    It will solve the problem, as switch will prevent any accessory from draining battery. First, get the switch on the phone charger, it's a must. Then, switch off the charger supply and just let the GPS be connected to battery and see if your bike still starts next Monday.

        Yesterday I installed additional step for saree guard as new Avengers dont have one. It become difficult for elder women to sit and rest their legs in absence of footrest (step).
        I installed it from local market.
        Installation time 2 min, cost : 220 Rs.
        Now anyone can sit on rear seat of bike easily.

        Hi
        I drive with exact same ratio, though there is no tachometer, its very easy to judge the engine stress. On 5th Gear bike runs smooth on between 50-60 kmph

        Hi,
        All three models are superb!
        Street model is good for city ride but my Cruise is also good there. I did not find any difficulty in driving mumbai traffic .
        -New street Avengers may come with Tubeless tyres but Cruise wont.
        -Avengers are reliable than RE bikes and routine maintenance is all that you need. Maintenance cost is low and spares are easily available.
        -150 street will give you more mileage and driving comfort also.
        -Take a pic of yourself while sitting on bike and decide how it suits your height, I am 5'4" so it suits me.

        I selected cruise for its looks, classic chrome finished parts, oil cooled engine and Golden Cat is not common on road.
        Traffic cops generally stops sports bikes but cruise bike riders are decent people so no worry

          Hi all,

          the front forks on my avenger is leaking oil. What is the oil capacity of the front forks? (Each how much oil needs to be put in)

            Hi, today I changed my engine oil of my avenger 150 using a local mechanic. Now when I check the oil level, the viewing glass is fully covered. If I run the engine while in center stand, the oil level stands at the max mark, after switching it off it gradually fills the whole screen. So should I drain the excess oil or would it not be a problem till the next oil change?

              Hi Gurus,

              I have a Avenger 220 Cruise which I drive quite rarely. In one year it's done just 600 Kms. I do make it a point to clean and drive it for a short distance every weekend. The bike has been serviced as per schedule and is perfectly fine except when starting.

              Whenever I start it, it have to leave it idling for almost 5 minutes otherwise as soon as I give accelerator the engine shuts down. This was not happenning earlier but started after the second service. I think the service folks adjusted the carb Fuel Volume screw.

              I don't want to go back to the service center as they may spoil something else, my confidence on them is low.

              My question is: Do we know what is the factory setting for the Fuel Volume (Air/Fuel) screw for the Bajaj Avenger 220. How many turns is it opened from the full close position? Any help will be really appreciated.

                Certain imp questions
                1.Oil changes at ?? Kms
                2.Which oil: Bajaj or other brand
                3.How much oil was specified on oil bottle

                Now its normal for the oil viewing glass to be filled completely when the bike is parked on main stand for long time(2-3 hrs)

                As per manual, oil level should be in between upper(max) & lower level (min). If its right upto upper level. Drive for 20 kms, after that if you smell like oil is burned especially from engine exhaust, then remove excess oil(50ml should suffice) . But i don't think you have any excess oil in your bike.

                From my personal experience, where my mechanic accidentally poured wrong engine oil (20w40 instead of 20w50)with wrong quantity (1.2l instead of 1 litre) burnt oil smell was coming also engine gets hot lot faster. Oil starts to leak from above sparkplug. So be careful.

                Certain imp tips
                1)Use mineral oil till your bike reaches 5000 kms
                2)After 5,000 kms, use Motul 3100 20w50 semi synthetic oil for interval of 3,000 kms
                3)After 18,000 kms use Motul 7100 20w50 Fully synthetic oil for interval of 4,000 kms
                4) Use Engine flush before changing oil, pour 50ml in engine, keep it running for 3-5 minutes, then let the engine cool a little before removing engine oil.
                5) Clean fuel tank after every 5,000 kms
                6) After engine oil change wash the lower portion of your bike especially near the engine drain nut. Certain amount of old engine oil sticks near that drain nut. I ignored it for 12,000 kms only to find that oil starts leaking since drain nut get loose.
                7)Never put incorect grade & quantity.

                    Nowadays there are many changes in rules & regulations for Automobiles in India. Government is pushing Automobile manufacturers in india to go electric without any proper infrastructure. Bajaj's policy is to keep legacy products alive, keeps launching variants for shirt terms. Look at Avenger series only 220 is still in production, 150,160,180 have short term product life cycle for Bajaj. Consider 220 street/classic for long term parts availability. I own 150 street for 2.5 yrs. Only problem I after a 1 yr was gear shifter spring stopped working, got replaced after making lot of noise in service center typical Bajaj. Rear brake pads gets changed after 2000 kms. Scheduled maintenance will keep your Avenger trouble free. What exactly are your requirement. I would suggest you to get atleast dual channel ABS bike. Also keep in mind bike is just one part of riding. Proper riding gears does help a lot. Also safety accessories like knuckle guard does save rider in small mishaps. My hands were saved twiced in city accidents.

                        Hello Guys,
                        What is the deal of low indicator sign.
                        When bike's power on then low indicator sign come up when the battery is new, when engine starts low indicator sign turn off. Is this any sort of issue?
                        If no then how do we that battery is drained out?

                          Generally, battery voltage low indicator will be lit when ignition is on. Once engine starts, it will go off.

                          If it glows while engine is running, there might be problem with charging system or the battery should be charged.

                            Actually, I do not much about it. It is faulty or what, recently there was raining on NCR . but to which there is moisture I suppose in there. the battery sign and high beam sign is gone now , permanently.
                            I am taking my bike to a repair shop soon to fix these issues.

                              I was waiting for Bajaj Avenger 220 Street BS6, Since I wanted to purchase it with Fuel Injector.

                              Now Bajaj has already announced BS6 Version of 220 Cruise and 160 Street, So I want to know whether they will launch 220 Street or not???

                              Today when I checked Bajaj Auto's website, There they have removed page of 220 Street as well.

                              I wasn't looking at 160 Street since it does not have Oil cooling and I was planning some long trips on it.

                              And for 220 Cruise, the only thing left out is Tubeless tyres.

                              Please share your review, whether Bajaj will launch Street 220 or not and if not then for which option I shall go?

                              Thanks in advance.

                                What does Oil Cooling have to do with long trips?

                                I'd ridden my CT100B around the country clocking about 8000 km's in under 2 weeks without breaking a sweat.

                                So simply put the manufacturer knows best and the lack of an oil cooler doesn't mean a motorcycle is less tour-worthy.
