      About 5 weeks in with my new Avenger Street 220. Still got issues with finding neutral while parking, but it's otherwise running great so far. A quick question to those with modified seats: by how many inches did you widen the pillion for it to be comfortable? Is adding foam on top a good idea? (I've hears that on overly soft seats long drives start to hurt faster)

        hi
        Finding neutral is very easy. Try 2-N-1 or 1-N-2 sequence back to back. Remember dont push hard for neutral but just tap the lever lightly. And try neutral when bike is stopped.
        Regarding seat,1 to 2 inch thick foam on top is ok. Pillion seat need widening by by atleast 2-2 inches from both sides (total 4 inches wide).

          I got the pillion seat modified too, one inch from both sides and a layer more for comfort. No issues so far, so yes its a good idea to add foam on top. They key is to get a good quality leather on top.

          And if you really want the pillion to be comfy, add the backrest as well (from cruise 220).

          Check out here, I have videos on everything Street 220.

          I make videos on Motorcycling here. For some, Bikes are more than just a way of transportation. Bikes represent the freedom of being. Mere existence is not enough. Sometimes, you just need to be on the road with everything else in your rear view mirror. Someone said, "You are never lost. If you have a ride ......and enough fuel....... You will get there". Just sharing what I know. If there is one thing I really believe in, its this: "IF YOU REALLY THINK YOU CAN DO SOMETHING, THEN THE ONLY THING YOU NEED TO DO IS BEGIN"

                hi,
                adjust clutch cable free play. It seems like your clutch setting is problem.
                Also note that gear shifting will be smooth after 5-6K running.

                • Avenger 220 White smoke

                  hi All,

                  I'm new to xbhp. Need help please

                  Just have a question.

                  Bajaj avenger, 2013 model, 23K done.

                  Engine oil - Motul 7100, fully synthetic. Milage- 33km/l - city

                  Yesterday, I went to the mechanic to change the spark plugs. Both had turned black. New Amaron battery also installed. I'm 2nd owner.

                  The mechanic also pulled off the carburettor switch (he said it will clean the water in the tank). When I was about to leave I accelerated heavily and found white smoke from the exhaust. I asked him about this, he said the pistons need replacement. I'm not sure if the white smoke came out before of it was only after he pulled off carburettor.

                  I told him I will be back soon. I went home and researched more on this. I read an article which said I need to check the carbon in the exhaust. I put my finger in the exhaust and found the carbon in powder form. What does it mean?

                  Can anyone please help?

                  thanks!

                    Hi,
                    I'm new in xbhp forum. Read a lot of great stuffs for the past few days.
                    I'm very new with motorcycles and bought an avenger 150 street one month back. It came with Eurogrip tyres and not with MRF Zappers.
                    Any new owner aware of this change?
                    In internet, everywhere I read says Avenger comes with MRF tyres.

                      hi,
                      first check what models of Spark plugs you installed, they must be same as original one.

                      Secondly, smoke from engine means your piston rings are weakened and will need replacement of whole assembly ( Piston and cylinder ).
                      So try carb setting and air filter cleaning from other mechanic and see if smoke comes from exhaust.

                        Done , now rear wheel stops when clutch level engaged , shifting has became better.

                        will wait for 5 to 6k kms to see it gets butter smooth, right now i have done 3327 kms, btw it was butter smooth till first service of 537 , i even complimented the service guy that its smoother than my old honda bike .god knows what made it such rough , could it be oil ? but it was same oil till first service , so i am confused

                          I tried hitting neutral when the engine was off and that worked very well; thanks! Just a gentle tap worked, like you said. The neutral problem is solved. When I recently gave it for (1st) servicing the Bajaj guys had no answer to it and several times even banged the heel shift down hard to achieve neutral from 1st. They kept the bike overnight and the next day the fuel indicator was down one notch. They claimed they had gone so far as to call the company regarding my issue and it was meant to be like that so I should just go get more practice, bye. Ridiculous.

                          I visited your channel back in April for the "black" backrest. Nicely done!

                          I do want to get a backrest installed. The local Bajaj dealership has asked for a few days before they can get one for me. Their asking price is a little under 1k.

                          I also wanted the windshield, but that's for 4k! I expected something around 1.5-2k.

                            Now, I agree on the asking price of the backrest. But Windshield costs at around 2500/-
                            Them asking 4000/- is ridiculous.
                            I would suggest to get an aftermarket one for under Rs 1500/- or try another workshop.

                              Absolutely. I enquired at a local shop and they quoted Rs 2000 for a genuine Bajaj windshield, which seems reasonable. The cheaper ones are small and will not do much because I need it mostly for avoiding bugs and rain in my face, so a tall Avenger Cruise style seems appropriate.

                              I have entered your giveaway. Fingers crossed!

                                Hello Everyone,

                                New member here, this is my first post in xbhp forum. Really happy to be part of xbhp.

                                I just purchased my Avenger street 220 four days back. Already done 250 kms. While purchasing motorcycle i had very bad experience with dealer and cant trust him for servicing my bike.

                                Is there is something special which needs to be done for first servicing which can only be done in authorized dealership? or can i get first servicing done from my regular mechanic also. I know getting it done from outside mechanic will void the warranty but i simply cannot trust that dealer.

                                Please advice.
