    I also added 2 inch cushion on seats which gives excellent comfort and potholes are easily neutralized now. I tried this method before changing to gas shocks, but now I dont need to change shocks. Shocks still bottoms out on load so will change spring load settings and check.

      I think I have excessive engine oil in my bike, and it maybe a cause of concern. Can someone recommend an easy yet safe method to remove the excessive oil, currently the oil is almost 1cm above the upper level.

          So should I try this new shock or gas shocks ? I dono am in dilemma
          My gas shocks have been 5 years old and now performance reduced
          What about going it on patch road ?
          I just wish some friend would have got new avenger to ride

            hi
            I travel on patch roads where road height is uneven so it gives hiccup to bike, but after modifying seats I dont need to raise my butt to avoid the impact. This is my positive experience after seat modification.
            But remember, I have glued heat sheet material under seat mounting on chassis. Its effect will be negligible but better than nothing.
            As you have already made changes to fit gas shocks, better you buy new gas shock and continue, no need to use stock one.

                  hi
                  Bajaj is working on 400cc Avenger but its name will be different than Avenger.
                  It will be launched in second half of 2017. Till now, Bajaj is busy with Dominar.

                      hi
                      The footrest are fabricated by local fabricator , they are taken from Enticer and then fabricated to fit on Avenger.
                      Total cost including material and labour cost is 1500rs.

                        One general question.. is there any benefit in adding Enfield CRASHGuard to avenger despite adding weight like Increased ride in comfort ? Has anyone tried it ?
                        1.riding comfort
                        2.covering the crash guard area with some black fibre or metal sheet to Protect mudsplash from front tyre
                        3.protection to legs and bike in case of skid and fall

                          hi,
                          I have never seen any Avenger with such crash guards.
                          RE crash guards are larger in size and may not fit.
                          1) There is no harm in using them, weight on front side will help in avenger .
                          2) Covering crash guard with fibre sheet will affect cooling of engine , never do that . At most, cut the big hole in fibre sheet in-front of engine so that air reaches engine and do not overheat it.

                              This is a good modification. Should do it by all means if you want.

                              [MENTION=58525]gold[/MENTION]encat, So I removed the excess engine oil in two phases. I removed around 200ml of engine oil a day back and rode for around 25-30kms and the engine felt quite relaxed. I checked the oil level again when the engine was cold. The oil was still way above the mark, almost 98% filling the transparent glass inspection window.
                              I removed around 250ml of oil more again and this time the oil level dropped and it was just right at the max mark when engine was cold.
                              I started the engine and the oil level dropped to minimum with engine running.

                              I am not sure whether to check the oil level with engine cold or warm, or hot.
                              And if which condition where the oil mark should be at.
                              In my case the oil reads at just the max level when engine is cold.
                              I did ride for few kms after removing excess oil, and must say that engine is smooth as ****. I was riding at 50-60km/h on 3rd when I realized I had to shift and after shifting I found I had another gear left!!!! I did lube the chain with surplus engine oil, however I am sure that alone wouldn't have made such a stark difference.

                              I am hundred percent sure that excess engine oil can cause resistance in the engine, which may be causing those unnecessary engine buzz, and vibrations. The gear was also slipping at times, and sometimes I could hear the rattling when downshifting, the gear wouldn't properly engage.


                              Edit : Bike is heating up quite a lot recently, or at least I have started noticing it. Currently reads at 1600km.

                                Oil level should be between marks at Cold I guess...bcos at start or running these oil is used into engine and coolant radiator in case of 220 engine
