          Guys need help with AVenger 220. Its done 28k km since 2010. Have been in relatively more use over last 1 yr - 12k km in last 1.25yrs, Since i moved to Mumbai. I dont have much technical knowledge of 2-wheeler working.

          I try and get service done every 3months. Have had 2 Services at Ghatkopar Service station, last one 2 months back. - Only comment : Avoid it. They are a bunch on incompetent nincompoops. Both times its come out worse than when I left it with them.

          2 services at service station at Wagle Estate, Thane - comparatively better. But still unsatisfactory. Another service at a Sai Automobiles, Vikhroli just yesterday.

          1. Can someone suggest a really good mechanic or service station..?

          Coming to major problems

          1. Over last 1yr drive in 4th/ 5th gear has worsened considerably. Bike wont go above 70-75kmph. And even then it feels like its losing power/ knocking. Till last year used to do 100kmph easily. Even in 1-2-3 gear pick up seems really poor compared what it was earlier. Pull on uphills seems poor and power seems to be losing. Have had clutch plate replaced, clutch cable replaced around 6 months back

          2. Traction seems really poor. Can it be wear to the treads. Should I consider replacing tyres. If yes, which tyres?

          3. I am not happy with front braking. Only seems to work when pressed full. Half press seems to be completely ineffective in last 6 months. Have had brake fluid replaced 3 months back - but no change.

          Thanks in advance.

            It's good to know that you are having a great affair with your new steed. Keep enjoying and do post some photos also.
            Yeah sure shall be posting the snaps but the problem is I am using xbhp android app it does not allow me to put the snaps through the system. Moderators please help on this.
            Yes first service is done. The bikes fe till now is 35. Only well she has just come to reserve now filled 11 ltrs only let's see. The manual says 20w50 engine oil. I have used the same after confirming for the company as well as the service engineer as the bike is a 150cc by mistake there was typo error. Well they confirmed yes in street 150cc 20w50 engine oil will be put. Hence change the engine oil with moto 4 gold 20w50 engine oil.
            Also changed the air filter which is on the left hand side. But the mechanic was insiting to open the clutch cover and he was saying that there is another filter inside of the oil we have to change that one two. Well I was not happy for that hence did not go further In doing that. After returning checked the manual and yes it is written there two. Guys can you through some light on this.
            Well till now I was on pulsar 180 ug4. Oil cool based well this 150 street is all new for me specially the air cool system. I will be very happy to Learn more about this bike with of course my experience and yours. Put together here for all.
            For sure when I sit on the computer my snaps with the bike will come. Or if you can just guide me a better way.

                1. I would definitely suggest you to take the bike to a good mechanic(not to those bunch of idiots in service centers) and have a look at the clutch plates again and also have a look at the air filter. If the air filter is not properly cleaned then it'll restrict the air flow in the carburetor, hence the performance will be affected.
                2. Don't need to change the tyres if it has good amount of tread. Have a look at the tyre treads. If it is greater than 1.5mm then you are good to continue on that.
                3. Change those front brake pads. Only changing the brake oil will not help if brake pads are not in good shape.

                I have seen this handlebar on a custom thunderbird. It looks really nice. Does it fit all the the instrument clusters properly?

                    Yup. Noticed it. You have done some really good mod job with your bike. Any luck finding the fatter tyres?

                          In my opinion the front tyre seems really thin when looking from front. Did you changed that too?

                          Nice captures. Avenger is looking good in the herd of big bikes.

                            Yeah thanks the bike is to good no doubts about it. First service done changed the engine oil with moto 4 gold 20w50. The bike is running smooth as ever.
                            yeah ave is looking like a kid in front of those heavy machines.

                            One thing I like to mention here regarding this seed for which I have tested in 5 bikes till now. Yes in winter season this particular 150cc needs really good time to heat itself if god for bit she is not set to that good degree of engine heat you have to really pull her hard other wise she will stall. The rpm is perfectly set co% temperatures are perfect not changed the stock setting of the carb. But yes I have noticed 2 things 1 in the afternoon when there is good sun light the bike runs really smooth without you getting a feeling of fuel unable to supply properly while ridding the bike. But in 2 timming that is at night she really gives a good trouble. I mean to say is that she will stall if and unless the bike is not set to that heat level of the engine. Then really it is difficult to ride at night. I asked about this with the company as well as the mechanic. They all are saying that when winter is over the bike will run perfectly. I guess the air cool system which they have introduced is the real culprit behind all this.
                            Experts I hope I have made my point clear can you all help me out here to understand this air cool system.
                            What I am facing is the when ridding the bike at 40 or going up at 50 or comming down while giving the acceleration I can feel the bike is not getting good amount of fuel. For which I have checked the same thing in different vehicles from the company to all are having this particular effect. When asked the company people they say that one's the bike comes in 60 degrees then the bike will come to a normal way of ridding and you will not get any problems.
                            Hence it's ok I am getting used to it. But one has to really understand this. Properly as this is somewhere or the other a concern. What do you all say. Those who have purchased 150cc please give your verdict here so that few things can be cleared. Is this thing in few batch or all. Tested this on 5 vehicles 2 brand new and 3 of the current owners.
