Try Ralco speed blasters, I have used them in my Classic and they perform really well in terms of grip (wet/dry/offroad). However life is 10-12k km only.Hello All,
I know this thread is not much active now, but wanted to get some information. I need to change tyres for my Electra and Ceat Grip XL is not available in recommended size for Electra as I checked in Ceat Tyre shops. So any good recommendations from you guys as alternative or if someone is managed to get Ceat Grip XL for Electra?
Hello Mandar,Try Ralco speed blasters, I have used them in my Classic and they perform really well in terms of grip (wet/dry/offroad). However life is 10-12k km only.
ANother option is MRF Mogrip M, however I dont have any first hand information about it.
I am personally against Michelin Street. I have used it twice, and its pathitec when it comes to wet grip. Though the tyre life is very long.Hello Mandar,
Thanks for your reply.
I checked in multiple shops and the only option they are giving is of Ceat Milaze (3.5, 19). No availability from MRF or Ralco. Hence I am considering proceeding with Michelin Sirac Street (3.50, 19, Button pattern for Rear). This one is available in Chinchwad Michelin Shop. As per the online review and a few YT videos, looks to be a decent tyre. Also, I checked this thread and searched backward, there Michelin Sirac Street was in recommended one as well .
Nope... Still with the old stallion.. Did a trip last month.. 8 years, still going strong...Its been so long visiting this forum . Good old memories. . Guess all Electra owners who were active in this forum switched to some modern bikes and sold their Electra or scrapped it . My Electra is also taking its last breath. Planning one last trip to Ladakh this June. Going to be 5th Ladakh trip on same Electra
Looks nice.Hi All,
Finally i found out the ultimate solution to the vibrating rear view mirror issue. The stock rear view mirrors are like some high speed pendulum Got rid of them after like 4 years of owning the Electra. Then i switched to the classic 350 Mirror thinking it would be sturdy. Still no use as the vibrations kept creeping in at even 40 kmph and i could not see anything on the rear view mirror. Then one of my colleague suggested to install the Bajaj Avenger's Mirror sit will not vibrate much and will be comfortable. I was little skeptical about it, but he happily gave his Bike to check it. He also owns an Electra and had Avenger's mirror. I was just blown away by the result. It was rock solid. Zilch vibration...
I immediately installed in on my Electra. To be honest, it kinda improved the look and it looks beefy. Also there is zero vibration at 60 kmph. But if u push it past 70/80 kmph then the vibrations creep in. But i believe 60 kmph is the sweet spot for Electra and i have always enjoyed cruising at this speed. Please find below few pictures i took with the Avenger's Mirror on my bike. It has got a rubber beading between the frame and the mirror which aids in better dampening of the vibrations.
Please Let me know your views n this.
