    Default TVS-SUZUKI samurai bike problem

    I recently bought an used tvs Suzuki samurai which was not in a running condition. I have replaced the body parts , choke wire, throttle wire. I am now facing few problems in my bike. I am very curious about it.
    Bike details:
    Make: TVS SUZUKI
    model: samurai
    Year: 1998
    Problems faced:-
    1)First thing is the mileage. It has a very poor fuel economy of only 17kmpl.
    2)the bike refuses to climb steep and sloppy roads.
    3) At normal roads the bike pickup is fluctuating randomly. (It goes fast sometimes and very slow sometimes).
    4) I have noticed a strange sound at the top speed.

    Please help me.
    Thank you

    Hello, Congratulation on your new acquisition.Suzuki samurai is an excellent bike which gives you a good balance between fuel economy and power.
    1.Firstly,get you fuel tank cleaned if it is rusted.
    2.Clean the carburettor and get it adjusted from a good mechanic.
    3. Put a air filter and fuel filter, the bike should not flutter.
    4.Check your clutch plates and pressure plates, if they are worn out replace them.This maybe a reason for the loss of power hence not able to climb the slopes.
    5.Check the condition of the block and the piston.
    Check the piston and the cylinder liner for scoring marks.Loss of compression may also be a reason for loss of pickup as it is a old bike. If the block and piston seems good,put a new set of piston rings which should pump up the compression,else rebore the block for the next OS and piston.
    5. Decarb the silencer if necessary....it will improve the throttle response and the engine will feel more alive.
    PM me if you need anyhelp.

    Getting 50 kmpl out of a bike that is near 20 years old? better to buy a splendor or some other 98cc 4 stroke. With all the checks at the best old bikes would give 30-40 at the max.

    The best answer for his query on 50kmpl can either be Yes or No, if you couldn't give the exact numbers. He never asked you which of the bikes will give 50 kmpl.
    And FYI, I got 52kmpl on my RXG (not restored one) if driven sedately, ofcourse it is 20+ years old and to my knowledge it is neither 4 stroke nor a splendor also should be bigger than 98cc

    Perhaps you should have read my answer I clearly stated that on the checks so given on the preceding post, the mileage would vary from 30-40 depending on various factors including the riders weight parts, used for restoration etc.

    FYI you should learn to read better.

    FYI congrats on getting a mileage figure on a different bike and since it is the game of anecdotes with no hard evidence I get 80 kmpl on a trashed RX 135 if driven sedately and of course it is 20+ years old and to my knowledge it is neither a 4 stroke nor a splendor and also should be bigger than 98 cc.

    FYI dont even bother replying.

    That is what I stated to you, OP never wanted to know about a splendor.

    you are right Mr.boss, thanks for understanding bro, that person who had given such a useless reply, just leave those people, they never gonna change and will disturb and annoy people with their useless comments, those people are just useless and also they are not real bikers, because real bikers always respect each other.
