Dear Bike In­dia,

Bike India - - TECHNOMAIL -

I am Shiv from Nag­pur and I am a proud owner of a Royal En­field Hi­malayan. But I have am not re­ally im­pressed with the way the bike per­forms. I want to know how I can in­crease the per­for­mance, ba­si­cally the ac­cel­er­a­tion with­out spend­ing much money. I don’t want to mod­ify the en­gine as it will mean spend­ing a lot of money. Please sug­gest ways to get bet­ter ac­cel­er­a­tion at min­i­mum cost.

San­tosh Tin­gre, Latur

Dear San­tosh, the eas­i­est way, and also the most in­ex­pen­sive way, is to up­grade to a rear sprocket with more teeth on it. Putting a larger rear sprocket will give the bike bet­ter ac­cel­er­a­tion, how­ever, it will re­duce your top speed. There will be no mod­i­fi­ca­tion as such re­quired to carry out a sprocket change but make sure that you con­sult a pro­fes­sional tech­ni­cian be­fore mak­ing the change as they will be able to tell you about the ex­act num­ber of teeth re­quired on the rear sprocket as per your needs.
