            1200 Kms run in around 20 days. Total petrol filled 43.42 Litres. Last tank fill to reserve gave me only 27 Kms to a litre. This was after the first service. Before the service I was getting around 35.
            The Gear shift has become increasingly clunky and hard. At times does nt shift properly on one attempt. Specially the shift to fifth gear is not smooth.

            Performance is good. Vibrations though not overly annoying are on the higher side.

            Most ownership reviews mentioned the fuel level gauge fogging up during rains. Nothing different in my case too. Check the image how it has fogged up.



            Rear seat is plain uncomfortable. As time passed this has come to fore very evidently. Initially it seemed OK. But before planning on any long rides with a Pillion modification of the rear seat atleast is mandatory if you dont want to earn an enemy for life.


            Planning to change the oil to some other brand during the next change that I plan to do around 1750 Kms.
            Its not always about speed.

              I was too thinking about putting skull rear view mirrors and skull back light on my bulllet classic.. but then dropped the idea thinking it will ruin the orignality and may take the decency out of the bike.... though I knew they will look cool...
              leave it as it is for 2 yrs, atke special care for your color and chorme, it will look good

                  • Hello lord,

                    Thats a hell of a ride you got for yourself there.
                    This is my first post though I am a regular follower of xbhp ('cos of 200NS).

                    I own a red eliminator (first batch) which has done 40k+ till now and I am planning for few mods. Is it possible to let me know your mechanics address and the cost breakup ? I am mainly interested in
                    1. Handle bar (more inclined towards enticer's)
                    2. Gas shock absorbers (endurance)
                    3. Rear indicators
                    4. Seat cover (complaint from better-half)
                    5. Silencer (only if cost permits)

                    I may also need some repair like clutch overhaul as I am feeling vibrations at the footpegs. So the cost breakup might help me in prioritising...

                    cheers,

                    girish

                      • Can't sell my Avenger!

                        Hey,

                        I know this is off topic, but this is among my first posts on the forum. I'm looking to upgrade to a bigger bike, and so wanted to put my Avenger 220 in the classifieds here. I tried posting 3 ads, but still have not been able to. Can anyone help me out!!!!? Do the ads need to be approved by someone? Or am I doing something wrong?

                        I say Gear up.

                        • Sorry mate, no idea. Maybe you could PM a mod with your doubt. They could help you faster. This post may go unseen or even if seen, quite possible that no one would be able to help you.

                              Hi - Am an Avy newbie - was generally cruising the net last Saturday, and came across some threads of bikers - one site led to another, and the next morning went to see a bike I shortlisted in Gurgaon - rode the 'bike, loved it, checked it thoroughly (bike, papers, et al) paid the seller a small deposit and asked him to ride it over to my place in Delhi. By late evening I was the proud owner of a 2010 Avy 220 DTSi.

                              Will write more on the Avy later, but for the moment, my recommendation is to post / search ad's on Quikr - it worked for me !

                                Planning similar mods on my Avy 220. Went to Karol Bagh yesterday and got the following stuff from Sagar, main Arya Samaj Road:
                                1. HID lamp kit - KDO - Rs.1,200
                                2. Dual horn - the stock was a bit pissweak; this one's louder but doesn't shatter eardrums - 250 bucks
                                3. Theft-protection alarm - 900/-, Indian one, looks tacky but at least has a manufacturer's warranty (though dunno what good that is if the bike gets stolen )
                                4. More comfy grips - 200/-
                                5. Enfield saddlebag - Rs.500/- from Khajanchi - there are two of them, one in a narrow lane, and one on a wide road. This was from the wide road.

                                Then went to the other Khajanchi; a full plush seat which also pads / widens pillion seat will cost Rs.800 - said he'll take 1 hour. Tried a sample he had there - heaven - feels like sitting on a (slightly firm) bean bag ! Also selected a handlebar which gives a wider grip (helps greatly in 180-degree turning from stop) - said he'll fit it with all the original cables - Rs.600 + 100/- for mechanic.

                                That's my 2-bit contribution for the day,

                                Now need some help - I need a mechanic in my area (Vasant Kunj or nearby) to whom I can take the bike for general tinkering / fittings - recommendations / PM's / emails welcome !
