Did this help you?

hiyadroogs: have got the starting technique pat? I ask, because never known a diesel not to instantly. I used to have a engined DI Maestro, even at -6, I used the glowplugs.

It would be even before the starter had disengaged, it had a much lower ratio than industrial singles! Maybe it’s the injection technology of this but it runs very eneven for a even accepting that it may be

CaptainCropper: Thank you, not hard really, trickiest bit was the electrics.

hiyadroogs: @CaptainCropper Are you you didn’t mean 700 km from a Capt’? The standard Enfield is 2.96 gallons. To achieve 700 from a tank, that would have to average 236 mpg! 700 km, or 437.5 miles, is a tad an easily attainable 148 mpg.

I do know this engine can 180 mpg without too much difficulty.

sams: hmm it has a cheap china clone engine. i got one too! you have the 418cc? let me know if you any trouble with this

CaptainCropper: @dev14u, er. what are you about?

CaptainCropper: Believe it or it’s never kicked the clutch is so feeble that the motor kicks, the clutch slips and the force never as far as my foot.

CaptainCropper: @hiyadroogs, sounds like you may be right. Any regarding MPG should now be directed at please :o), my maffs up to it.

starmanskye: Cool Bike! But for cruising, something this utilitarian (never ‘crude!’) be very fatiguing with the vibration. A more modern, 2+ design would be a huge People ARE making their own There’s a company that makes a twin-cylinder modern enduro-style bike around 600 cc for the US which is pretty trick.

In the few years, I’m sure will be greater interest in MCs simply for fuel efficiency.

It sounds like a cement Use your imagination.

CaptainCropper: it’s fine, I use the electric kicker is futile in colder

hindimusicvideos: beautiful machine. I can see a proud owner there.

tlo E: he is talking about All the crappy components

ppiilloottee: Verry 😉

vegiboy100: Another question kind of seat is that and did you get it.

vegiboy100: What is your wire attached too?

I’ve done a bit to the bike to it a cleaner look, mainly the have been replaced British made Doherty as has the throttle. The only handlebar is on the left bar (hi/lo/horn), the rest is on the box. Ignition switch out and replaced with a Lucas to take care of the off/side/main of the lighting.

Basically anything modern Indian stuff has come off or is on the list to come

CaptainCropper: It’s a 14 litre and assuming (pessimistically) that it 150mpg, that’s over 450 to the The long range 18l tank top 600 miles. Time will what the fuel consumption is

Howard Moore: Dang the is bigger than the bike

Apparently the factory diesels the you could get 400 miles to the tank,I the tank doesnt hold

hiyadroogs: The KLR conversion you refer to for the is in fact a single cylinder injection diesel of their own It is 670cc produces something 33 bhp, which is an extremely output for a non turbo diesel of that capacity. It revs to

An industrial single cylinder injection diesel of similar would produce perhaps that, although would be fuel efficient.

arie Are you coming to Hamm??

JtsGreene: I what he did to it, so I know how it’s Not everyone is entertained by shiny and flashing lights, I prefer the and putting stuff together.

is it wise starting a enfield with crocks on youre u are a braver man than i am lol nise tho

enfieldchopper: Thanks for checking out my captain. Your diesel is very interesting. Nothing that around here. like to have one.Very Sounds and looks older the year.

A real brit i presume?

CaptainCropper: I’ve been to Hamm, maybe you met The ratchet on the kickstart slips, so I put my full weight on the kick that’s why it takes 3 kicks. I use the start now anyway.

silver760: a beauty,expertly done,stew

Xelmon: A bike? I’ll be damned.

CaptainCropper: @rollingredknuckles, The original diesel is no longer sold, it was anyway, I think it had a 325cc lump. I have no issues the rev range, I love the thud thud of bimpling along at (top whack). Also quite cool is that it over at about 200rpm and if you get a tailgater (and you will) you can whack the throttle wide and all the extra diesel turns acrid black smoke and you an instant James Bond screen.

CaptainCropper: @rollingredknuckles, currently re-wiring the entire to make the most of the meagre offering from the diesel (the stock RE alternator fit on the diesel lump) and because wiring is the most terrible ever to curse anything wheels.

CaptainCropper: @vegiboy100, a seat, I got it from Hitchroostersmotorcycles dot co dot uk. not that comfortable really.

Our nation being one that has dry weather and an average vehicle of 8kph. I’m sure are just fine in India, but here we have to put up with round rain, interspersed snow, ice and the most corrosive salt you can imagine. May I should said crappy Indian when used in the UK rather making a global statement.

said, the paint is very even if all the nuts and bolts dissolved.

Aronnax87: Wonderful. wonderful. This bike is my from a long time =). i have to buy 250 normal gas bike for now xD By the When Enfield stopped production? In 2008?

CaptainCropper: Not Most of the bike is Indian for the levers and diesel conversion The frame is powder coated so last for years, everything is soluble.

CaptainCropper: The diesel bike production years ago. still make petrol Your 250 is almost certainly than this bike, so feel to bad

CaptainCropper: Look, really not interested in getting a ridiculous Youtube argument, the I took off were cheap and and made in India, the wiring was nasty and ineffective to I tore out the lot and rewired it myself with quality components. You guys to take things a little personally, I love India, been there many times. And it wasn’t just British parts that the demise or British bikes, it was a attitude as well.

Aronnax87: I it will be faster, It has more double of HP, but I’m sure You that speed is not everything =) curious. Is this bike to broke? How is it going on long

That’s what for me is the most ‘couse I’m going to a vaery long rides on my =) and who knows, maybe some day on a bike.

CaptainCropper: @GameronMaximus, you want to pay postage. o)

CaptainCropper: as long as the outside temperature above 11c, below bio goes all gooey. Smells BBQ :o)

Shagun Kalash: hi i am lokking for a re wanna sell this

devashish: captain. captaincropper. or crook with an er. btw learn to be As per my knowledge, British people are for that. and if you cant. then try to learn something everyday commenting/blaming/pointing on other stuffs. tough luck. I personally no charm in seeing you or your so inventions and their descriptions.

of them are wrong. so dont about replying. take dude.

Shagun Kalash: how much u want for it.

CaptainCropper: is, the KLR based bike is something ВЈ10,000. There’s a company in who have developed a bike scratch, but that’s ВЈ13,000. a place in Germany that Triumph Tigers, these the 2 cylinder engines you speak of and I they are the cheapest of the fast

arie sams: Hmm didn’t we in Hamm 3 weeks ago? In you will learn how to start it in a push!

IndianPrince04: I think the takeaway here is that he even realize that the that assembles the bike is the country that manufactures the that make it a whole. My own a Land Rover that’s giving them problems day 1, and now they’ve vowed to never buy inferior British made They’re better off going a Japanese car, or dare I an American one.

Since has bought them out, imagine their quality issues will finally be

jjjjj: neat bike. proves once again everytime i (or mabey we) feel find out my genious idea’s been a reality for decades

tantragna: like that way of the engine.

renny mathew: kind of crappy indian you removed. dude these components are working fine in our if u think the components are crappy because they are indian. i think ur mind is also

CaptainCropper: @rollingredknuckles, Matt, as is in the spiel that goes the vid, it’s a PricePart conversion. Main things are the of the down tube on the frame Parts sell this the spacer on the gearbox to make it all up, and I think, the final output or something in the gearbox. It’s all at

Personally, I thing the wisest way to do it is to buy a sorted Bullet with a engine, and take it from

Jeffrey Muntz: What’s it starting that clanker on a morning??

hiyadroogs: Just your other posts My questions about starting uneven idle have answered by the kickstart ratchet, the
