About me

I am one of those quirky Bulleteers who spend more money on their thumpers than on their wives. Being a bachelor does make the job a lot easier. However I have never being shy of trying out new things on my royal ride. Since the time I got my own bullet, I have steadily experimented with mods.

Mind you these are not mods that aim to change the look of Bullet and make it a “HARDLY Davidson”. No thank you. I very much love the old style charm of Royal Enfield. These are mods that aim to get the best out of your Enfield so that you can break a leg with your ride without literally breaking your leg starting it.

So in the interest of the “Bullet brotherhood”, I am sharing my list of mods that have actually made my Bullet experience better. Please do feel free to post in the comments section any products that you feel deserve mentioning in my list.

The claims for these spark plugs touch the sky, with it providing everything from improved throttle response to Fuel efficiency and though many of these claims were not apparent at first, I noticed that after installation of these plugs, kick starting my Bullet was much easier. After a time I also noticed a marginal increase in mileage. These spark plugs are extremely reliable and I have never once had any issues with them.
