Guidance about 500CC
  • Guidance about 500CC

  • Dear All,

    Read lot of threads on net and came across some important issues which I would like understand about:
    1. Saprk Plug Sooting (something related to lack of lambada sensor. Sensor not present in Indian models i.e. only present in export models).  This seemed to be directly related to how EFI is behaving.

    2. Some modification related to crank i.e. increased weight for better stability

    3.  Front fork modifications; again for better stability

    Questions is are these problems resolved and updates included in Classic 500 (One I want) or I have to go for Dessert Storm or Classic Chrome.

    With all love for RE; I need to ride bike in City on day to day basis and if and will Spark Plug sooting  on EFI mean that I should go for 350CC Carburetted version of RE.

    Can someone please help?

    Thanks in advance.

    ps.  As usual; Test Ride page filled with no reply.
