  1. Hi own a Bajaj Caliber 2001 model and has clogged 70000 Kms till date. I have started noticing some issues, for which i need ur help 1) When i kick the bike, i feel the compression has come down, because the kick flows down very smoothly. 2) After the bike started, if i raise the throttle, i find that the bike is emitting black smoke. Till date i have never replaced anything in this bike except for bulbs or clutch wire (that too only once). DO you guyz feel that the clutch plates and the piston rings must have worn off??? is it both or one of them....
  2. I feel that all the problems started when they launched Uno, they started out with a very bad note. Beacause they did not have spares and after sales service was poor. And apart from this, their marketing was also very poor. So they lost out a lot. Even now i feel they are loosing it big time after the tie up with Tata.
  3. I definately think this is the new Splash from Suzuki's Stable
  4. you guyz should check it out for once... Hit 100 Kmph Mark and slip to 4th gear and brake flat out at 100 with A/C switched on. Try doing this again without A/C.

    Why???

    Just like a new born baby can't walk, the new bike cannot take excess speeds, therefore you need to treat it well... otherwise you would spend a lot on ur engine...
  6. Well what ever it is... i have seen that there is a vast difference in braking while the Air Conditioning is Switched On and when Switched Off then the braking returns to its Normalcy.... Try the braking at 100 Km/hr... with A/C Switched On and then try it without the A/C Switched On.... U will notice a Difference in braking...
  7. Hey Harry where do u stay?? incase u wanna be in touch i m putting down my cell phone no +919972858858
  8. I m Up for a meet at Bangalore... Please do let me know abt the date, time and the Venue....
  9. Tubeless tyres can also go flat, but the air leak would be less, so therefore you can fill the air and drive until you find a puncture shop which can fix your problem. The method of removal of puncture is different in this case.
  10. The most simple difference between the two is that in 155/70 R 12 Configuration, one gets better grip and handling. Although on the flip slide i have lost little bit of ground clearance. In the Tubeless tyre setup you would find that since their is no tube inside the tyre, you would notice a better feel while driving, also the fact that the punctures are very minimal and you can purchase a Puncture Repair Kit which is easy to handle and comes with seals.
  11. after changing them, i have felt that the grip has improved drastically. Get to know the grip feel at corners at high speeds.
  12. I upsized my zen tyres from the original 145/80 R 12 to 155/70 R 12. The new ones have tubeless and it costed me 1450 Per tyre.
  13. The point is that Rhino cannot compete immediately with Innova or the likes of Scorpio or safari, because its got ownership issues overall maintainence, efficiency, serviceability etc etc... therefore its better to go in for a tried tested vehicles.... Engine might be good for rhino but what about other parts, their quality, levels of service etc.... no one is going to buy a MUV just for the sake of Engine parameters!!!
  14. I would suggest the Philips Rally Bulbs 100/130 Watt they give good beam spread and are very powerful.... and cost less too..
  15. It is the segment here which is in Competition and not the price tag.... The segment here is MUV, so therefore includes Rhino, Innova, Scorpio etc....
  16. Hey one more thing to every one out here.... we basically have only two covers explained above. Please provide your suggesstions on what specific type of cover you would like to cover in your vehicle....
  17. As you mentioned about claiming.... their is a very scientific method thru use of Statistics, one can identify at what level one should make a claim.... but then again, you know your loss... so therefore you may choose Fire & Theft policy, whereas for general public, taking package would be overall beneficial.
  18. That is good if the buyer or the insured is well aware of his needs and also knows that he never is going to meet with an accident, this is a chance which he might be willing to take. Probability of the accident is way too high now, thanks to the roads and the users. For the general buyers of motor insurance, the package policy is the best. Moreover you need to understand that you are limiting the cover to Fire and Theft Only, so therefore any accident caused to your vehicle will not be covered under the same. So in a sum it is better for a person to take a package policy he might end up paying few thousand odd rupees, but gets the benefit of cover.
  19. and it may be launched after 2 or 4 years.... i think this would be too late as Tata would have eaten up this New Segments Market Share just like how they captured the market of four wheelers for Commercial Vehicle with their Ace. I must say Tata is setting up good target markets....
  20. Hey check this out this link.... Bajaj unveiled its Lite... 2 days before the Tata's 1 Lakh car. But says it may not cost 1 Lakh. Looks out quite good if priced for Rs 1 Lakh... http://specials.rediff.com/money/2008/jan/08sld01.htm
  21. do a balancing and alignment once again.. and if not satisfied rotate the wheels (Tyre Rotation)... also check for air pressure....
  22. See there are a lot of things which circle around the accident. Now for example their is depreciation on parts. Now what type of accident you have depends on the parts that are affected. If its a partial loss and say suppose you had a lot of plastic damage then depreciation on plastic is 50% irrespective of the age of the vehicle. Now that could reduce your limit of compensation sizeably. I am also providing the depreciation rates on the parts so here goes.... Rate of depreciation for all rubber nylon/ plastic parts, tyres and tubes, batteries and air bags - 50% Depreciation for all fibre glass components - 30% Depreciation for all parts made of glass Nil For Glass the sealants, rubber related components are not paid. Only the replacement value of glass are paid. So there are a lot of conditions and warranties related to it. For more information, read the your policy terms and conditions and incase you have any specific query let me know. Well unfortunately what you are saying may be true. But we have to Aware of the Policy that we accept. So therefore if we are aware of the terms of coverage then we can fight it out!!!
  23. As all of us by now know that according to the MV Act (Motor Vehicle Act) all vehicles necessarily need to have compulsory Third Party Insurance. Now the there are typically two broad terminologies in motor insurance 1) Third Party Insurance Only or Act Only or Liability Only (these are some of the common terminologies used), third party is nothing but apart from your vehicle and you (the rest of all things like property, vehicles, people etc) 2) Own Damage is damage to your own vehicle, and therefore policy pays for losses to your vehicle's damage. There are broadly two types of covers: 1) Liability Only (which covers only Third Party Insurance) 2) Comprehensive (Which covers both Own Damage and Liability Only) sgiitk is right... we do have covers specific of the risks.... but its always better to go for an Comprehensive Cover.
  24. Hey guyz.. Since Insurance was not in this thread, thought of creating one. I have some experience on Motor Insurance.. Therefore would be glad to answer some of your queries regarding the same...
