  1. How to clean engine fins of bike

    Hey guys I want to know how do I clean the engine fins of a bike. The spaces between the find have acquired some sort of hard brown thing and I am finding it impossible to remove. I tried rubbing it with soap water and also kerosene using paint brush but in vain. What should I do now. Can I use the all purpose degreaser from Amazon by wavex? Or should I buy some heat resistant paint and paint the fins? The find are powder coated black from factory. Please help me out.
  2. Planning to buy a new starter bike

    HI guys, I am planning to buy a new bike with a budget of upto 2 lakhs. I have no experience what so ever on a 2 wheeler. But, I would like to buy a Yamaha FZ25. I wanted to know my decision of buying a 250 CC bike is good decision or not. Also, I would like to know if the power output(i.e. 20PS) of the bike is too much. Some of my friends say its a good decision, but others say its too much power. So please help, I'm really confused.
  3. Suggest a new bike for my friend.

    Hello Autocar India Forum members, my friend is looking to purchase a bike which is rough and tough with decent mileage good riding comfort both in city and long highway driving his budget is 1 lakh rupees.
  4. Hi All, Need your suggestions in choosing a Motorcycle. Please see my requirement below. Budget- Maximum 60,000 Monthly Mileage- 300 kms Preferred Manufacturers- Honda and Yamaha but open to others as well should the product feel superior to what Honda and Yamaha have to offer. Usage- Daily local commute of not more than 10 kms to run errands. Primary user is my father who is now 60 years old. We have always had Hero Honda's in our family hence the preferred manufacturer. I do not want another 100-110 cc in my family as we already have a Passion Plus. Ideally 125-150 cc motorcycle is what we are looking for. Suggestions please.
  5. Hi, I own a Yamaha SS 125 and considering an upgrade. I am 5'7" tall and weigh 62 Kgs. I am confused between Yamaha SZ - RR, Suzuki GS 150R and Honda Trigger. Below are my priorities listed in descending order (higher to lower). I live in Bangalore and my riding will be mostly in city and little bit of weekend getways ranging 150 kms to and fro. Handling Braking Performance Comfort Price Mileage Concerns about mentioned bikes: Trigger - Not that easy to zip through traffic Suzuki GS 150R - 6 gears which could be troublesome in traffic and rear seat looks very tall Yamaha SZ - RR - Plastics surrounding tank might get damaged easily in parking Please advise me which one to choose and why?
  6. Looking for a Tourer

    I am looking for a tourer, and a BMW had actually caught my fancy - K 1600 GTL - but its obviously way way way out of my modest budget of around 1.5 lacs. I love to travel and have tried to abuse my TVS Wego by completing little more 2400 kms in less than 3 months. The Wego is the first ever vehicle in my family, which I bought in October 2012. This new bike will be my first bike, and before this I rode a couple of Bajaj CT100, Platina and a Splendor but not for long. I am looking for something which I can use for traveling long distances (in the range of 100 to 200 kms at the moment), easy to ride, should be very reliable and most importantly, comfortable and return decent mileage. I am not keen on the Avenger 220 at all, and some of my friends suggest I should consider RE ThunderBird. If so, which one would you recommend. I am open for other options too. What do you think I should be looking for?
  7. Made by South Louisiana-based Marine Turbine Technologies (MTT), the Y2K has nothing less than a Rolls-Royce Allison 250-series gas turbine engine, usually found in, erm, helicopters. Unleashed on the world way back in 2000, the original Y2K hyperbike, the yellow one in the inset, had a 320-horsepower engine that, the brochure claims, made peak power at no less than 54,000rpm (compressor speed) and churned out more torque than a Lamborghini Gallardo. All in a motorcycle that weighed 30kg less than a Hayabusa! It even had 200-section rear tyres mounted on carbon-fibre wheels. Performance, as you might have already guessed, was off the charts. In the time it takes a Veyron to do 180kph, the Y2K would do 320kph (5.4sec, and we’re wondering how the rider hung on!) and top speed was an eye-watering 402kph. Then, since that absurd top speed and 320bhp simply wasn’t enough for everybody, MTT introduced a 420bhp version called the Y2K Streetfighter. This one had a larger swingarm, wider 240-section rear tyres, bigger fuel tank and an enhanced cooling system. Cut to the present and MTT is working on the red bike you see. Due for its launch in the United Kingdom in mid-2013, it’s the latest version of the Y2K that uses a Rolls-Royce 250 C-20B gas turbine engine rated to 420bhp and a claimed, if yet unproven, top speed of 440kph. It is currently undergoing wind-tunnel testing in the UK to determine what changes should be made to allow the bike to run at such speeds without, you know, taking off. The best bit is that MTT is currently thinking of selling it in India. It has, in fact, imported one example of the Y2K here via its distributor, Viva Motorsports, to gauge Indian interest. It will be on display at The India Bike Week in Goa on the 2nd and 3rd of February 2013, so us mere mortals can eyeball it and hopefully hear its fighter-jet-like exhaust note as well. As for the money, the Y2K retails for Rs 1 crore in the US of A, so expect it to cost roughly twice that if and when it comes to India. The Y2k was recently showcased at the Parx and Autocar Supercar Show in Mumbai. Here is a video of the startup at the show
