|Battery Tender BTL14A240C Box|
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.

Bull LEDs headlight for
Royal Enfield unpacking
I need not have worried. The system is smartly designed to run only 5 bulbs along with the DRL for low beam. That still makes the headlight quite bright. However not blinding bright for the oncoming traffic. It is when you switch on the high beam that the beam gives its full blast. And then it is so bright that even during the daytime you can see the light reflected in road signs.

If somebody sprays water on it, it is as good as dead. If it is sitting too long in humid conditions it will not function properly. Additionally these paper elements are quite restrictive and block free flow of air. So I switched to fabric air filter. Now I had two choices K&N and BMC. I chose BMC mostly because it was recommended by red rooster. Moreover I had read somewhere that due to the less restrictive nature of K&N it tends to let in a lot of dirt in dusty climate. While BMC claims to filter even better than paper element. Then there was the thing about carb jetting. Almost everywhere I had asked before they had recommended carb jetting to be done along with K&N filters. This was also not required for BMC. Anyways since I have only run BMC along with Red rooster exhaust I can only comment that I saw a boost in pickup and performance. I can’t say if it was partly due to RRP and partly due to BMC or wholly due to either. What I can say is that it installed with least amount of hassles. I have since checked the space inside the air filter and not seen a speck of dust. So it seems to be doing its job well.

yes. It is amazingly good to look at. Made from a single piece of stainless steel this jointless designed exhaust is one of a kind. Once you hold it in your hands you can immediately feel the weight, the finish and the high quality work that has gone into it. The sound is god awesome. Again it is not very booming like a wildboar but just the right mix between the boom and the rat–a-tat of an automatic gun. It is a stock replacement that does not need any carburetor tuning. When I installed it along with BMC air filter (which completes the free flow exhaust system) and rode it, I almost felt as if I had left the “choke on” in my bullet. The bull just raced forward even at the slightest throttling.
After installation I have been asked so many times where I got this silencer that I feel I should keep the visiting card of RRP printed for distribution.
