Issue No 5: My bike leaks oil the gearbox.

I can see oil drops on the frame and on the just below the gearbox.

leakage is not actually from the but from the Neutral Switch and is by an inappropriate sized small rubber sealing. This was more predominant on the first of 220s and has been rectified.

a) In case your bike from this leakage, all you to do is take the stock small ring out from the neutral and install a fatter appropriate one (available with Bajaj In case you are visiting the authorized center, do not settle for sealants, coverings which generally are the which they provide.

However, counter check opening up your machine it is the engine oil which you see. often than not it would be the lube or chain spray gets spilled onto it.

No 6: My main stand touches the on every bump

Again, this should been taken care by but sadly the height of the main makes it a little dangerous for those who are corner cravers.

a) Not an or authorized solution but you can go to a roadside and seek his help in this A little raise is possible the stock hanging position.

No 9: I cannot see anything through rear view mirrors

the Rear View Mirrors on the new Pulsar 220 DTSi are slightly than the ones on the DTSFi. they are as worthless as well.

1) You can install RVMs from RTR which have a bigger rod and viewspan of the back

2) You can also unscrew the stock tighten them to a slightly tread which would you an extra tread or two of height space). But remember, they go loose sooner than at the position. You will have to them frequently.

Issue No. 10: brake doesn’t have stopping power

Whenever you this issue to Bajajs their patented answer be “The rear brakes are kept with lower power to prevent rear locking”. This is not absolutely but unfortunately not completely true as 220s rear braking is not as as some other bikes with rear disc provide.

Workaround: Change disc setup to the latest Remember to change the complete kit and not the calipers which Bajaj will advertise!

Issue No 11: brakes produce screeching

Many owners have this complaint and sometimes the becomes irritating. This was of a little fault with the rear KBX calipers.

Solution: Take your to the service centre and ask him to tighten bike’s tappets.

Issue No 16: My doesn’t go over 120kmph

A healthy 220 should reach 140kmph on the speedo easily.

In case it doesn’t than get bike tuned properly. Do not set it for or mileage. Keep an optimum between the two.
