Question about Bajaj CT 100 Motorcycles
Hi, Mt_sanyal the following tips are low cost easy to apply/install and guaranteed to give you better gas mileage and a smoother running bike. The average motorcycle gets 35-40 MPG. saving .2 gallon of gas could save you a 6-mile walk. 125cc scooters have been known to get 115 plus MPG
1. Proper tire inflation as per MFG. specifications wheels should be balanced and spokes tight.
2. Oil and coolant levels maintained at full marks, low levels produce excessive heat that causes the engine to work harder and reduces efficiency.
3. Keep extra weight to a minimum.
4. Take off from a dead stop should be smooth and easy throttle applied avoid excessive throttle snaps.
5. Smaller windshields get better MPH than large ones, wind resistance increases as a square of the speed at which you're traveling. So, for example, at 70 mph, wind resistance is double what it is at 50 mph (70 squared is almost twice as much as 50 squared). That will dramatically reduce your mileage. Keep that in mind while biking.
6. Keep idle time to a bare minimum or turn off the engine.
7. Re-jet carburetor with a smaller main and mid-range jet.
8. Keep chain/belt properly adjusted.
9. Avoid quick braking, hasty acceleration, high-speed driving, try driving the speed limit and keep a constant speed.
10. On long trips use freeways or flat straight stretches of highways rather than city or rural routes avoid hills and mountains when possible.
11. Keep your engine clean, dirt and grease/oil hold in heat.
12. A full-face helmet is more aerodynamic than other types of helmets. Any other clothing that decreases your aerodynamic should be reconsidered.
13. Any unnecessary bling on your bike is going to decrease fuel efficiency.
14. Use high-quality fuel using low-quality fuel can cause sludge in your fuel injectors.
15. Keep warm up time to a minimum get off the choke ASAP.
16. Motorcycles run best when their engines are maintained, and that includes making sure the air filter is clean, the spark plugs are fresh, the fuel filter is free, and the timing/valves are adjusted.

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....

Oil changes are all you need to do for engine lubrication. 10w40 motor oil is what goes into the gearbox. NEVER use synthetic lubricants in the engine. Thay can mess up the clutch. Please rate my answer. Thanks.
