    i have to remove chain cover [8D]
    yeah, 1 more thing that this post reminded me. Is the chain cover purely a cosmetic part, or does removing it compromise safety in any way, like increase the risk of chain coming off or something... coz man u dont want that to happen!!!

        Will this mileage drop damage the engine in the long run???
        no, there wont be any effect on engine performance or engine life...the tyre wont load the engine so much so as to damage it...

          hi rash i have a zma. I want to upgrade my zapper to a new tyre
          is michellin a good option or i have to remove chain cover or to do some mods .Also tell me that is there any drop in mileage and top speed thinkin it in long run as well.
          i need ur suggestion cauz i know that u have michellin on ur yellow zma.[8D]
          The Michelin M45 is an excellent tyre in terms of size, grip and even looks. CErtainly better than the Zapper. On the ZMA, u'll need to remove the chain guard. And believe me the fat looks of the tyre along with the naked chain looks too good...
          The grip is excellent too...


          ** I still prefer the Zapper for wet roads...

            Ace bhai, I would suggest u go for the Michelin tyres.
            The Michelin M45 tyre is made of soft compound which makes it a lot lighter and at the same time gives u a contact patch almost equal to that of the 120
            Because of the lesser weight there is not much drop on the avg. too, actually on my zma I got an increase in the avg. by around 2 kmpl.
            but if only a tubeless is on your mind, I suggest go for the Maxxis Barracuda than the Duro.

              Sorry to be such a nag, coz I've asked this question many times before. But plz answer this time: I was told that removing the chain guard compromises safety by increasing the chances of chain coming loose etc. Also may cause problems coz of loss of protection from dust...IS THIS TRUE???

                Tanmay...u r half right half wrong...
                Yes dust and rust will be ur chain's biggest enemies when u remove the chain guard...but u can take care of the chain by lubricating with the chain oil every fornight and spraying anti-rust spray on it once a week...

                About the loose chain thing, well actually u can easily check everyday whether ur chain has become loose and if yes u can get it tightened. As it is no one checks for the chain tightness everyday by opening the chain guard window. So with the chain guard off, u can actually see ur chain's tightness everday...

                      Hey whackyfox,
                      I think u are joking; putting enticer's rear tyre on CBZ is impossible coz Enticer's rear tyre is of 16 inches while CBZ needs 18 inches.. nice joke.. [xx(]
                      If u put rear type of CBZ in front wheel that kills ur mileage, handling and everything.
