      Hi Everyone,

      I have changed my handlebar to that of Cruise, but the front disk oil tube and switch cables have been brought out to adjust the increase in height.
      It looks a bit odd, but the handle bar fits perfectly and i feel great while riding, now my Avy looks and feels like a real cruiser.

          Yes the wire of breaks are really looking not good. But forget it if you are comfortable with the bike that's what matters the most.
          The bike should be for us not for others comfort.

            Need a small help guys. Any reliable ASS for first service of Avenger street and Cruise 220 around Hinjewadi/Wakad/Pimple Areas in Pune? Bike was bought from Rhythm Auto in Wakad but the svc looked really dubious.

              Yes, have ordered the Disc break tube and switch cables, have to wait till the stocks arrive.
              The bike feels really comfortable, just went for a short 150 Km ride and no complaints so far .
              Planning to add windshield to my Avy soon, after the cables are set.

                Guys, this is my first post here.... Recently bought a used 2011 Avy 220.... Rode a lot of used ones before finalizing on the one that i bought.....the engine felt smooth and had a proper service history..... Few queries
                1. I am having a ground clearance issue especially when I have a pillion. It scrapes most of the speedbreakers if I don't really slow down the bike. Initially it was scraping all speedbreakers and found that the rear shocks were in the position of least travel, which I adjusted. But still the bottom keeps scraping on above average sized humps whenever I have a pillion. What could be the problem?

                2. I get a FE of 32 kmpl in normal riding and about 40 if I consciously ride it under 60 kmph. Is this figure fine?

                3. I am intending to change the rear tyre to 140/90/15 instead of the standard 130/90/15. How does this affect FE?

                For your info, the bike has done 31k on the odo and has no modifications.

                Thanks

                  Also I forgot to mention that the bike really struggles from 80 to 100 kmph. I read people touching 120-130 kmph.

                    1. Bottom scraping does happen if bike is not slowed down to a level. Try to figure out that speed where you can avoid the scraping.
                    2. Most people get around 35-45kmpl on mixed conditions. As yours has already clocked above 30k kms, try to thoroughly check the bike and if possible get the carburetor tuning and cleaning done from an experienced mechanic.
                    3. Can't say. But some people in this thread has already done that. Try to search a little. Best of luck.

                      Again check the carburetor and the clutch plates. It shouldn't struggle to reach 100kmph.

                          Yeah a good move by the dealer to promote the sales from his showroom. It is not bajaj. It is the same style what here re people do of the showroom to boost up there sales. It's like promoting your product in street with a group. Free of cost. Yeah its fun.
                          Here my dealer did the same thing by making it a huge success. Since I was not in town could not attend it. But heard it was a good event.

                          If you get time you must go it's really fun ridding in a group. I went with my friend on his royal enfield when they did something like this. 32 bullets in one stream 150 km up and down.

I have been using Michelin sporty 90/90-15 which was nice and trustworthy... Need a change now... My front tyre is gng to burst within few days
                            Just go with the Michelin 90/90 what you have been using. Don't go for other. Just change with what your bike was used to with plus not to forget you yourself. As any change in the bike one feels uncomfortable for few days until and unless we get used to it. So at the end of the day just use what you have been using for such a good time. Good luck.

                              Hi Guys,

                              First Post here!

                              Just got an Avenger Street 220 couple of months back, Excellent back! love everything about it for most part!
                              The one thing i'd like to change is the paint but i'm completely clueless on where to buy the particular paint i'm looking for and a reliable place to get it done (i live in chennai)..

                              I was hoping for a Black matte finish like the one on the Harley Street 750 or the Renegade Commando (Also noticed it in some of the Thunderbird Models).

                              Il Attach an image so its clear what im looking for.

                              P.S - I heard Pudupet is a good place in chennai to get Bike mods done, any other place recommendations are open too

                                I got the avenger back in 2010 and after 6 years of use, I thought I'd drop by a review of the Avy. It has been with me for about 70-75,000 kms and I have been using it primarily as a touring machine. TIt is a very fun motorcycle to say the least! I have been Leh'd in 2011 and attend almost all of the xbhp tri state meetups on it and it has never let me down! The last memorable trip was my solo ride from Kochi to Goa (~1900 KMS) in 5 days.

                                If you can get shell oil, thats the best engine oil I have used so far, I got it done once or twice in bangalore when I went for a ride, but it was difficult to find it in my town. I use the valvoline engine oil often and absolutely recommend it compared to the stock oil.

                                The service in Kochi (popular elamkulam) is kind of alright and the people seem to do a decent job, but they kind of jack up the bill with pointless stuff like "additives" and "engine flushing" everytime I give it there. If you know a good mechanic, you can ignore the official service centre easily.

                                The stock MRF tyres are very good and did not really need to replace them with any other brand.

                                The back brakes are not all that great and gets shaved off if you keep your legs on them when you ride long! Some parts keep conking off pretty regularly, such as the brake light, the odometer, the seat stitching and the suspension.

                                I'd recommend changing to the endurance suspension as that improves the ride quality by a lot.

                                The updates to the bike has made it pretty good and they seem to have understood the issues of the old one and fixed them. This is reflected in better seats, better suspension, better speedo. But the update has come a little late (around 4 years IMO). It is still a really good bike that is easy on the pocket and a looker!

                                Advice for new avenger owners: the rake angle is different from other bikes, so take it easy on the front brakes in loose surfaces, it will slip! But, use the front brake more often than the back. Learn to do this so that it comes naturally during panic braking!

                                The mirrors are huge and give you a commanding view of the world you are leaving behind. And finally, the chrome on the tank can be irritating while riding in the noon, might want to put some vinyl to prevent sun glare!

                                Recommended accessories:

                                1. Indicator beeping thingy: since the indicator console is not in your field of view, you tend to leave it on after your turn
                                2. A clock (search aliexpress for motorcycle clock): because you need to know the time to plan your next chai sutta break!
                                3. Fuel lock: It is easy for someone to siphon off gas from the knob, so get one of those locks if you park it in unsafe places.

                                And for old times sake. here is the video that sealed the deal when I was shortlisted between my avy and the karisma

                                https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y10OJ1pNW3o

                                PS: probably my last post about the avy, I am selling him off to get the AS200 as I need something that can be more agile in the city and still keep my happy on the highway like the Avy did. Have fun cruising, forgive that pothole, forgive that crazy rash rider, forgive that high beam on the truck...just FEEL LIKE GOD!
