        Hi
        Its custom made sprocket by a friends vendor. Now the vendor is not ready to manufacture that any more

          Hard luck.
          I have been unable to locate 15t front sprocket,so the search for 6 hole smaller than the stock 39T rear sprocket of 520 chain pitch has started.

                How screwed am I ? Went to the Bajaj service center to get my chain lubed. While their staff was busy working on other bikes , I waited for some time , couldn't be more than 10 minutes.
                By the time the person come to lube my bike , the bike just wouldn't start.

                This happened literally out of nowhere. Never in these 4 months I have has this bike for any starting problem until now.


                Long story short , the bike have something called "one way problem" not sure what it means.
                The guy it happened cause the use of excess use of the start button? Or some shit. IDK. Only time I press the button is to start the bike in the morning and when leaving work. That's about it. No one other than me uses the bike. Ever.

                Maybe someone more intelligent than me could chime in .

                Sigh, I feel like everything is Falling apart. Like the bike got totaled literally out of nowhere. Just like that.

                The guy Changd some barrels from the bike ? He's still adament that the damage happened cause someone (me) I had been pretty rough with the self start button? Doesn't add up. But what can I say, what's done is done.e hopefully won't happen again. Really bums me out when things break ):

                  How to get the best mileage from the bike. I have avenger 150 , was getting 50kmpl before now I think it's around 40-45

                  Is it cause I have been speeding? not going too fast though, like <80 ( not that the bike will go any faster, but that's for another day)

                  While I was in break in period, I was going at Max 60kmph and was getting a good average of 50kmpl , I thought my mileage was go up after the break in period, NOT DOWN!!!!!

                  I AM SO UPSET.

                    1. They have replaced the one-way/starter clutch. This is a common problem in some of the Bajaj bikes. From your side, the best thing you can do is to release the starter button as soon the engine starts and always use choke for cold engine starts.

                    2. Mileage will not increase after 2nd or 3rd service but after break-in is completed properly and fully. Mileage decreases in some cases because most of us would increase our speeds after the break-in. My GS gave 60-62 kmpl during first 2000-3000 kms, I kept the speed at or below 60. After that, my acceleration was little bit aggressive and I maintained 60-80 (mostly 70-ish on open roads), it then gave 50-55 kmpl. 50 kmpl is not bad for Avenger 150, IMHO. It has a heavier chassis and heavy, fat tyre than the Pulsar 150. How much are the other Avy 150 riders getting?

                    How many kilometers has your bike done totally?

                      Thanks for the reply sir.

                      My avenger has done 3k kms till date . I was previously getting somewhere around 50kmpl, now the mileage has dropped @42kmpl.

                        Ensure these things to up the economy as much as possible:

                        1. Check and replenish your tyre pressure every 1-2 weeks, at least fill them with Manual recommended pressure every time you fill the tank.

                        2. Fill the tank so that it is almost full. Having just a few liters all the time would lead to evaporation loss.

                        3. Switch off engine, put bike on main stand and gearbox in neutral. Now rotate the rear wheel - It should spin freely like in a bicycle. If not, check if the chain slack is too tight. Take the help of a local mechanic to loosen the chain if it is too tight - the slack should be as mentioned in the Manual which for most bikes is 20-30 or 25-35 mm. Sometimes SVC adjusts the rear drum brake a bit tight - loosen the lock nut a couple of turns if brake is dragging. Ask someone to hold the rear portion down so that front wheel comes up - rotate the front wheel - being fitted with a disc brake, it cant rotate as freely as the rear but there should be no excess tightness or drag.

                        4. Buy OKS chain spray/lube from Bajaj or TVS chain spray and keep the chain's o-rings always wet and well lubed. Alternately, SAE-90 gear oil would do wonders.

                        5. Choose the best route to your office/college - best here meaning good roads, least traffic and least gradients. Maintain a constant speed of 50-55 kmph. Usually this can be achieved in most bikes with or less than 1/4 th throttle.

                        6. Don't lug engine. Since Avengers do not come with a tachometer/RPM meter, shift according to the 'feel'. Some bikes can be shifted to top most gear at 20-25 kmph itself, I don't think we can do that in an Avenger - each bike is different. Now, without lugging the engine, shift to the top-most gear as soon as possible.

                        7. Don't brake-accelerate-brake-accelerate-brake-accelerate. Instead, when you see a signal turning yellow, check the mirrors for any tailgaters and gently reduce throttle to chop speed. When you near the stop line, you can decide how much braking you need to stop.

                        8. Try to park the vehicle in shade always.

                        9. Warm up the engine by riding the first couple of kms in a gentle way (no lugging whatsoever) rather than idling for 1-5 minutes. The warm engine idle RPM should be correct. If idle RPM is set in a cold setting, engine will sip more fuel during stops.

                        10. In my personal experience, reserve-to-reserve calculation is fairly accurate. I hope you are calculating the mileage the right way.

                        Do all this, your mileage will improve. If it still doesn't improve, SVC has most probably fiddled with the carb and we can see later what can be done.

                        Cheers, Ashwanth.

                        • Avenger 220 2013 model customisation options

                          Hi there,
                          New in town(xbhp). Fellow members chirag bhawnani from gwalior. Need help regarding modification of exhaust or well say adding a secondary exhaust in avenger 220 which i own.
                          Question arises that
                          1. Who is the best mechinic / fabricator for this purpose in my town?
                          2. How do i get to have same stock exhaust on the left side since stock silencer have all the side plating and other stuff on right of it.
                          3. Is it legally approved to have additional exhaust ?
                          4. Should i go for complete stock with twin port splitter or just for a hoax exhaust?

                          Thanks in advance appreciate this platform.

                            . The mileage is decent, about 50kmpl ( I mainly ride on highways) .

                            During break in I was very careful not to ride above the speeds of 60kmph , I thought this would pay off once I had rode the bike for 2000kms , but I was dead wrong.

                            The bike is having a really hard time crossing the speeds of even 70kmph , forget going 💯+ .

                            Literally my Honda Activa was faster than this bike , riddle me that.

                            Is my bike ruined or is this normal for avengers?
                            Why is my bike struggling to go past the speeds of even 60kmph , I am eating dust out here. Being overtaken by those pathetic Bajaj vikrant bikes. Please Help me fellas.
                            This happened with me too...I just followed everything one has to follow in break in period. But then bike wasn't performing well...pickup also was dying...then i switched the engine oil to motul 3100 20w50 (1.15l)and i was overjoyed with results. Bike now cruised at 70+ speeds with ease. Engine was not getting hot. Will use shell next time to see what the difference is between the two.

                            Hope this helps!
                            Ride safe.
