    hehehe

    got to be kidding yaar. Ur 100 CC will be left with approx 60 to 70 CC dragging power only.

    and as far as CNG is concerned i dont know what are the technical reasons for not fitting the CNG on bikes. But people and experts do say that LPG (that is fitted on bikes in pk) is better than CNG. LPG kits are available for cars also.

    Shahid welcome to the pw.

    Ever considered considered the potential danger of these cylinders hanging from one side of a bike and their pipe hanging freely?

    What if a bike falls or gets hit from behind (we all know the traffic load and problems in whole pak)? well to me these bikes seem just like missiles that r ready to take off.

    Hi all

    Tesla (the company that makes CNG fueling/dispensing equipment) has already done these conversions for commercial fleet customers (think banks, courier services etc.) on a test basis.

    They will retrofit your factory stock bike with a scaled down CNG kit for less than Rs 15,000. The cylinder has a capacity of approximately 5-7 water liters and is installed directly under the seat (nervous people need not apply for this conversion!).

    The remainder of the kit is a scaled down version of a passenger car kit.

    Running cost to user is approx 25-33% to that of petrol.

    I don't personally know of anyone riding one of these bikes. I saw one of them on display at an industrial exhibition and discussed the project with one of the Tesla staff. They started up the bike and it ran fine on the stand. Of course, power output will be diminished, compared to petrol; but cost savings will be significant for the end user. I've spoken with a few people and they all say that they would jump at the chance to get the conversion done, once it is commonly available.

    On a side note, I do know some people running CNG rickshaws and they love everything about them.

    Regards,
    Vadvaro

    It wouldnt be a bad idea, except the bikes couldnt be on petrol. Just have them orginally made to use CNG; this would save some weight, as you no longer need a petrol tank and would be replaced by a CNG casket. Not a bad idea, wouldn't surprise me if someone in India is already working on designing these bikes.
