Modifying one part of your bike will some effect from another.
If you modify the exhaust system it won't guarantee a bigger additional power, it only just help the exhaust from the engine to go out faster. Become noisy too!
You must modify the piston, carburetor, crankshaft drive gear, and rear wheel gear to have the optimum power advantage you desire for real power from your bikes engine.
May I suggest, instead of the exhaust modification, you should start in the gearing system( crank gear sprocket, rear wheel sprocket, and chain )
Hope that helps you.

Tyres: Regularly check tyre condition and air pressure. Ensure tyre pressures are maintained at manufacturer recommended levels. Check your tyres for cuts and scrapes on your tires, which could cause a blowout. Also check the tyre treads once a week and have the wheels balanced and the alignment checked if the wear is uneven. Engine Oil: Engine oil plays an important role in ensuring smooth operation and maintenance of the bike and maintaining a correct engine oil level is important. Check engine oil level regularly. Check for oil leakage. The oil thickens due to carbon deposits creating drag in the movement of engine internals. Running the bike on dirty oil will not only increase fuel consumption but also reduce the life of the engine. Air Filter: Keep the air filter clean as dusty conditions in India tend to clog up the filter in no time. Change the air filter at recommended intervals and increase the cleaning frequency in particularly dusty climes. Clutch: Should be properly adjusted and have the right amount of free play. An over tightened clutch will cause it to slip unnoticeably and increase the fuel consumption while also burning it out quickly. Engine: Regular servicing and tune-ups will keep the engine running like clockwork and reduce your petrol bills. Pay special attention to cleaning the carburetor and maintaining valve clearances. Keep carburetor clean. Every 1500 km, clean out the carburetor float chamber and other parts. Don't neglect the spark plug, ensure it is clean, the gap is set correctly or replace it if past its prime as it's the most crucial link in proper combustion. Clean spark plug regularly, preferably every 750 km for two-stroke bike and every 1,500 km for four-stroke bike. Most modern bikes require the choke to be used on cold starts as they run lean to meet emission norms as well as fuel efficiency requirements. Transmission System: A bike's chain needs regular lubrication, cleaning and adjustment. Wash the chain with paraffin, a soft brush and a piece of cloth and remove the dirt accumulated in the chain. Don't use water as it might rust the chain links. After the dirt is cleaned with the brush and paraffin wipe the chain with a clean dry cloth. Lubricate the chain links and the chain with used engine oil. Check if your bike's chain has a free play of 2-4 mm in general by moving the chain up and down in a vertical direction with your fingers. Your bike's chain must have the correct tension and free play of the rear wheel. If the tension is more the chain wont power the rear wheel smoothly during motion. If in case the chain is loose, the power delivery from the engine to the rear wheel won't be optimal and there will be loss of power due to slippage. Take the bike to your mechanic or service center and get it adjusted to the manufacturer's specifications. Never over rev your RPM going at high-speeds continuously, as it may damage your bike's engine. Never shift your bike from fifth gear to first gear instantaneously because it damages the piston rings. Cleaning: Clean the two-wheeler body surface regularly to maintain the surface finish. Before cleaning the motorcycle, ensure that the ignition switch unit, H.T. Coil and silencer are covered using plastic sheets. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, try parking your bike near some shade because it becomes dull if exposed to frequent sunlight. Battery: The motorcycle battery needs periodical maintenance to ensure a long and trouble free life. Top up with distilled water whenever required. Check for any leakage from battery. It should be clean and free from any leakages. In case of non-use of motorcycle, battery should be kept fully charged. Brakes: Keep both brakes properly spaced. Keeping them too tight (too urgent), or too loose (too late) is dangerous. Brakes should be tightened as per the rider's personal style and requirement. Get your bike's brake pads replaced (front) if screeching sound persists, as sometimes it happens due to lack of oil also. Change your bike's fork oil once in every 12000 kilometers. Check sprockets and replace them if necessary (wear out limit 40000 kilometers). Try and maintain a speed of 40 to 60 kilometers. Always ensure that the tax is paid and Insurance cover (Insurance policy) is within validity period. Keep Tax Receipt and Insurance policy at home and keep Photo copy with bike.
Hi, have you checked if it is loosing air, try removing it and see if it goes down,if it. Leaks as you try to remove it then push it back in and leav it in the tyre, some tyre fitting centres will repaire it for you if it is not damaged inside as a result of overloading, take the wheel along to a fitting centre and ask about a repaire, or contact 1by telephone and enquire if they do repaires to motorcycle tyres before you travel, there is a stigma with repairing motorcycle tyres as a liability problem may exsist if the machine lost traction due to loss of air. Even though the manufactors say it is ok to repair, probs best. Buy a new 1, what bike is it fitted to, if it has spoked wheels it poss not tubeless, if it has alloy wheels it should be tubeless F
That sounds like a lot of work and expense, if alloy wheels are available. Unless you have some alloy wheels of another bike and the axles, sprocket and brakes are compatible.
There is no real advantage, apart from tubless tyres can sometimes have punctures repaired without removing the tyres from the rims.
If punctures are a worry, then fit heavy duty inner tubes, which will last for years
It seems to me that the wide tires, if properly inflated, would not adversely or significantly cause an increased load to the engine, unless they were underinflated. I would just look for clearance issues on the fork and other parts of the frame and mud guards.
In the 1980s, when all terrain bicycles were introduced with 'fat' tires, increased traction on roads compared to their skinny tire race bike counterparts was enjoyed by the masses (Mountain bikes vs. racing bikes).
I think that on a motorcycles, the same would apply.
I don't think the K&N filter would significantly increase pickup, despite advertising to the opposite. Just use standard air filters.
Good luck on modifying your bike to your 'dream machine.'
I have a Caliber 1999 model(bought on Jan2000), however it still returns me 58kms per ltrs. Immediately after a service it provides 60-62kmpl. I got around 72kmpl for the first 2 years from 2000-2002, later it gone down to 66-68kmpl for around 4 years. I maintain it regularly, Bajaj dealer where i bought it and later only with bajaj authorized service centers. recently i tried with castrol franchisee, not satisfied, so back to bajaj service center. Whatever your bike how you maintain it and how passionately consider your bike. If you still running your bike so long, You do not allow your bike go to scrap, your eco-footprint is less, especially when i checked my bike it came out far less polluting the environment than many other older bikes. Make sure you replace engine oil and other consumables regularly. Regular maintenance 2-3 months with a good service center. Self clean/wipe it on a daily basis. Maintain/charge battery properly. I change defective parts with OEM items immediately. Keep your engine in good condition, when I see many Pulsars/Discoverers rusting within 2 years and my Caliber is still solid, shining with steel, I just smile myself within....
Try using Bajaj Platina's Alloy wheels on your bike. It comes in Silver color. If u like black then try using Discover's alloys. U can also change the tires of your bike to the new one used in the New Discover 135 model. Both of the alloys and tires can easily fit on your bike. The modification can cost u upto Rs.4000 including tires. If u want a headlam change also then try using the headlamp of the New Platina. It will work good on your bike. Do not go to the Bajaj's service centre for all these modifications. They will not be able to do it perfectly and will ask u more questions than guiding u to do it perfectly. They will also charge u a hell lot of money. Try using your local mechanic for all these changes and it will not be a tough job for him. U can also bargain on the final price for all the modifications.
According to auto experts: (1. All the vehicles give more average in between 40km/h to 50km/h. (2. All vehicles gives more average in high gears so try to keep your vehicles in higher gear while driving. (3. Always maintain proper air pressure in tyres it will increase your vehicle average. (4. Always keep proper level of engine oil in bike. And remember always wear helmet while driving either driving in local or highways
