Pulsar 180 Facing Downshifting and Jerk Problems

Recommended Posts

I own a Pulsar 180 DTS-i (with LCD Speedo). The bike has covered 10,038 kms.

 I face following problems with my bike

1. Hammering Noise while downshifting gears.

Whenever I downshift a gear the gearbox makes hammering noise (inspite of depressing the clutch fully). If I blip the throttle (to about 2000-2250 rpm while downshifting, the gearbox does not make hammering noise and shift smoothly.

Will this blipping of the throttle everytime I downshift, affect the bike in any way (Engine, Gearbox, Clutch)? Will depressing the clutch and blipping the throttle reduce the life of the clutch?


2. Bike gives Jerk while shifting to 1st gear from Neutral (ONLY WHEN ENGINE IS COLD) as the idle rpm is more (1200-1500rpm)

    If I reduce the idle rpm, then the bike stalls because the engine is cold.


  Please tell what to do for both the problems?
