    Default My GS150 After 3 year of Use

    AOA fellows sharing here my bike pictures which is been with me for last 3 years.

    i had made some minor changes in the bike after purchasing her.

    1) replaced acid battery with maintenance free 1.

    2) changed front and rear tires with better 1s.
    front is from service 2.75/18
    rear is from DSi 100-90/18

    3) changed rear back light with newer model, with out any doubt new rear light have more presence on road than previous 1.

    4) changed stock bulb with osram h4 bulb 12v 55/60w with relay installed to save bike wiring from getting heat up.

    5) oil used in bike is always 20w50 mineral oil for gasoline engine not 4T oil of any type ,except once used 5w30 havoline full synthetic oil for 1.2k km. many will disagree with my choice of oil but what to do, petromin ultra 7, valvoline xld and now mobil special works excellent for me in all the bikes i have kept over passage of time without any trouble. and they are cost effective too.

    6) only used NuFinish polish once a year over the painted parts and u can see the results.

    7) bike have done 5.8k km till now.

    8) parts replaced till now.

    a) right side rear indicator which was broken by my self.
    b) Rpm cable once.
    c) rear brake shoe once.


    9) fuel consumption: 40+km/l till now.

    let the picture do some talking.

    Adding new ride picture too

    take care and kind regards.

    Default Sunday ride cleaning day.

    aoa fellows purchased this 1 last month and did'nt got the time to post here on the thread, so sunday finally became the cleaning day for her.
    decided to take some pictures while cleaning her i am not good at taking pictures so don't mind .

    have done some little changes in her after took her.

    1) as always maintenance free battery but this time 12V12AH

    2) replaced stock turn signals with older model ( personal preference )

    3) replaced stock head light bulb with orsam H4 60w55 with bulb holder and relay installed.

    4) replaced stock tire with DSI 100-90/18

    5) front mud flap changed with raider mud flap, saw it done on Basic thread liked the idea so done that too, along with protector cover on gear and brake lever.

    6) side cover secured with cable ties saw that on some thread too, good idea taken and used.

    7) helmet lock by STUDDS.

    rest all same and stock.

    i have used turtle products for last 2 decades and it works nicely for me.
    karcher pressure washer with foam sprayer and vario lance.
    paint was coated with Nu finish after the time of delivery ( 2 coats ).

    so here are some pictures .

    kind regards

    It can be installed on the stock rim. No issues. For a wider look and for the tyre to fit the rim properly, you may use a wider rim such as that of deluxe.

    tks its just hard for me to keep ride dirty .
    helmet lock was purchased from studds office by mr kamal ( he is a very nice fellow ).
    paid 450 rupees for it.
    extremely easy to use and very secure lock.
    will post the detail picture of lock and how to secure helmet with the lock in the morning in shaa Allah.

    oh come on its just the same ride with different color so why to take additional space on the site .

    btw tks for visiting once again .

    kind regards

    purchased from studds karachi office. / 450 rupees.
    no its rotate able upto 90 deg . so when i am riding single i rotate it towards seat when in double it face towards back light.

    its the new pattern without circumferential groove in the middle, btw its softer tire than the previous 1.

    tks dear .
    its on the stock rim, as ahsan95 said it can installed either way, just keep an eye of clearance after wider tire and wider rim installation.
    as read some where in older thread that it had problem with clearance.

    @archon2001
    Brother congratulations on your new ride. May Allaah reward you with good


    You have done some really nice upgrades to your machine. Kindly do post the performance of the DSI tyre on wet/slippery roads as I've heard it doesn't perform too well. Plz do let me know if the tyre change was a cosmetic upgrade or a performance upgrade.
    As far as my case is concerned, I am still running the stock panther 90/90 tyre on stock rim. I took the bike along with some friends to northern areas, and it rained all the way up as well as when we were descending. Believe me, the stock tyre performed exceptionally well. I did not feel it slipping even once
    The reason I brought this up is because I am thinking of getting a broader rear tyre
    Looking forward to your opinion
    JazakAllaah
