Pulsar NS 160 Engine Malfunction Light on glows while riding

Engine malfunction light glow while riding

Engine malfunction light of my Pulsar NS 160 BS6 is on or glowing always while riding the bike. This is the third time this is happening. Earlier two times engine malfunction or fuel injector light turned off automatically after one day. I did not do anything or I did not take the bike to service center.

Now, it has been one day, it is on whenever I ride the bike. I am not sure what happened to fuel injector. Bike runs as usual at lower speed, but at higher speed and revving, I feel a slight stress or drop in pick up. One month back, second service was done at 4500+ kms.

I was waiting for whole day whether light turns of automatically when I ride, but it did not turn off.

When I check the service manual, it is mentioned that engine malfunction light will glow when there is issues with fuel injector, but nothing mentioned as how rectify it.

So, tomorrow, I will take the bike to service center if engine malfunction light continues to glow while riding.

Hope, this simple issue, should not make me feel for buying BS6 vehicle.

Update on 12th August 2021

Today morning when I started the bike, engine malfunction light went off automatically. I did not take the bike to service center and I did not try anything on my own. I am happy now. Bike runs smoothly.

Saturday short ride with Pulsar NS 160

NS 160 Parked for water break at Vandalur

I ride from Saligramam to Kelambakkam today evening casually on my Pulsar NS 160. I took Maduravayal Tambaram by pass road to reach Vandalur, avoided city traffic. From Vandalur, I reached Kelambakkam. Then returned on the same route to home.

While crossing Vandalur, I halted the ride for water break for 10 minutes and resumed the ride to reach home.

Traffic was moderate, in both madruvayal bypass road and Vandalur Kelambakkam road, I was able to cruise above 70 km/hr speed comfortably NS 160.

Pulsar NS 160 Ownership review

I purchased Pulsar NS 160 last year. I have clocked around 5000 kms till date. Mostly high way rides. I have shared my ownership review with pulsar ns 160 comparing with my previous bikes. Here is my experience.

Pulsar 250

I want to own and ride Pulsar 250 motorcycle, such bike is not yet in production. The bike should have Bajaj’s own 4 valve engine, not KTM derived engine. It would be better, the current 4 valve 160cc engine of NS160 is improved and used in Pulsar 250. It should have strong low end and mid-range punch to ride easily in city. Speed of 0 to 100 km/hr should come faster.

Price of the bike should be lesser than FZ250, but pickup and speed of the bike should be faster than FZ250. I don’t mind top end speed, but engine should be very relaxed in highway cruising speeds, say 90 to 100, 100 to 110 km/hr. The bike should be stable in highway.

I don’t mind not having slipper clutch, let the bike have single channel ABS. Let the bike have pulsar’s characters – say clip on handle bars, back-light switches, and preferably having monoshock.

Bike should have ladies footrest like how it is given in NS160, so that women with sarees can also claim and sit pillion comfortably. Engine should not leak oil. Even oil leaked, it should be easily resolvable by service center mechanics.

I dont mind having vibrations in higher revs/speed, but i cant tolerate oil leakage and noise from chain sprocket. So, let there be good gasket and chain sprocket in pulsar 250.

I should be healthy enough to ride this bike 200 km at a stretch or ride four hours continuously. I should be financially sound to buy this bike when or if it is launched by Bajaj.

Life of Delusions

Life is full of delusions. In due course of life, delusion changes periodically. There is no fixed delusion throughout the life.

We are without any delusion when we born. As the mind grows/matures, it builds up delusion strongly.

Our mother, father, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunties, grandparents, spouse, children, friends, neighbours, job, business, education, degree, money, rich, poor, healthy, sickness and etc., all contribute to develop a delusion about ourselves.

Whatever goes into our mind, will be used to create a delusion. Addition to or deletion from our my mind alters the delusion we have.

Delusions are genetically influenced too.  Like our body, mind are genetically influenced, the delusion our mind holds is derived genetically.

All religions, philosophies are trying to get rid of the worldly delusion from mind – a mind free from wordly delusions. They want to fill the mind with Divine delusion. But man is always attracted by worldly delusions.

How it would be life without any delusion? Nobody knows, those who know, they don’t tell.

But, every night while sleeping, we are detached from our delusions. Deep sleep without dreams is without any delusion both worldly and divinely. Deep Sleep is a bliss.

Had Crush with Apache RR310 – RR150

Recently, I had Crush with TVS Apache RR310. I started watching videos and reading contents about this bike. I liked the full faired look and feel of the bike.

Then, realised that, I am not going to ride 120 km/hr speed. After riding Pulsar NS 160 in different speeds, I realised my comfort zone in speed.

I am most comfortable in 50 to 60 km/hr speed, for me it is fun to ride around 70 km/hr speed. So, by and large, I cruise between 50 to 70 km/hr. That’s it.

Buying RR310, and riding it 65 km/hr speed in highway is waste of money, fuel.

So I stopped the crush with RR310.

But, if TVS produces RR150 with same hardware but with a 150CC engine, with reduced price, definitely I will consider buying it.

Internet is flooded with touring, long ride, high speed cruising, higher CC bikes. Youngsters and biking enthusiastic are wrongly motivated as speed is fun, thrill.

To be honest, everybody is unique. One philosophy cannot be applied to all. What speed is enjoyable is different from person to person.

We should not allow market, media, trend to hypnotise ourself to believe something, in which we are uncomfortable. Right now, we are forced to believe what is happy to us.

We are forced to believe what is happy to us and pursuing it.

Not everybody is a tourer, but everybody likes to buy a touring machine.

I enjoy 3 to 4 hours of sprint, not touring, not long ride.

What is happy to you is unique to you, you have to find it, rather believe or assume something and pursue it.

Right now, only faired 150CC bike with upright sitting posture in india is Gixxer SF, but I don’t like the look and feel.

If Bajaj produces RS150 or RS125, I will consider buying them, but RR150 is my crush.

I don’t like the lean forward sitting posture of R15 or KTM RCs. I like the full faired bike with sitting posture of Pulsar NS with moderate power and better mileage.
