Hello Riders,

One request to all dominar riders . Please don?t use high beam on city limits  use  low beam instead.

 Dominars high beams ( Day running lights)are very powerful  which make the upcoming person blind . Please avoid using it on city limits .

If you find any Rider using high beam at city limits please ask them to switch it off  . You guyz can also post Picture with tag DOCB with #saynotohighbeam #DOCB

Race Concepts, a car and motorcycle tuning store based out of Bengaluru, has modified the Bajaj Dominar 400 for more power and torque. The modified Dominar with 20% more power and torque than the stock bike is now India?s most powerful Dominar 400.

So what are the modifications done?

First, the bike features a modified engine head, second, the ECU has been remapped, third, a free-flow exhaust has been installed and lastly, the modified bike is given a free flow air filter. All these changes and additions push the wheel horsepower (HP measured at the wheel) to 33 HP. The stock Dominar makes 27 HP at the wheel accounting for transmission losses. Torque has also gone up to 32 Nm from 27 Nm. At the crank, the modified Dominar is likely to produce over 40 HP of power and 40 Nm of torque, the standard Dominar makes 34.5 HP and 35 Nm of torque.

The Bajaj Dominar 400 has been undoubtedly been one of the most interesting motorcycles in the segment and has found its own fair share of popularity too. So much so, that with the Bajaj Dominar 400, Bajaj has been indirectly taking digs on Royal Enfield, especially the Royal Enfield Classic. Perhaps it is the list of features that the Bajaj Dominar 400 comes with, which include the likes of an all-LED headlamp cluster, a full-digital instrument cluster, availability of ABS, slipper clutch, and disc brakes at the front and back. Now, the Bajaj Dominar 400 has donned a new avatar ? as a police bike

There are several changes which have been made to the Bajaj Dominar in order to make it a full-fledged police bike. The changes evident from the pictures include new livery - which is as per the Istanbul police, there?s an inclusion of red-blue emergency lights, siren, a tall wind-deflector and a luggage rack has been fitted at the back which mounts a luggage box. The bike also gets knuckle protectors and headlamp protector as well, which look neat and incorporate turn indicators too.

The Dominar that?s sold in Turkey is Euro-4 emission norm compliant and offers dual-channel ABS ? which is indicated by the sticker on the front fender.

ECU Update 117 / What is ECU? how does it help and what does it do
« on: July 03, 2018, 04:47:36 AM »
We are electric beings vibrating within an energetic universe. The purpose of life is growth and development. When we cease to grow, we die. Therefore we must always be advancing and progressing forward, for this is the great law of life and living. And the automotive industry is perhaps the greatest example of that. It is always advancing, always growing and always coming out with better pieces of machinery.

When man`s fascination for speed and power reaches new levels and technology grows by leaps and bounds, engines cannot be far behind. But as engines continue to produce staggering amounts of power and emissions take a toll on the environment there has come a time when mechanical advancements solely cannot do the job of keeping the engine in sound health all the time. There has to be a governing mechanism which controls everything from emissions and Air/Fuel ratio to power and torque.

Under the hood of today`s cars and motorcycles (premium ones) beats a highly evolved heart. Here the ECU comes to play. There is a complexity never before imagined, and the Engine/Electronic Control Unit (ECU) plays a major role in the performance of the engine. An ECU controls and maintains an engine in it`s optimum state by manipulating the sensors and actuators which result in changes of the air-fuel mixture, ignition timing and idle speed. The ECU is to an engine what a CEO is to a company. It manages all the running aspects of the engine and let`s the user know when something is wrong.

Now let us take an analogy of the human respiratory system to understand the automobile engine. We breathe in through our nose which filters the harmful/impure air and lets in only fresh air rich in Oxygen ; then we breathe out and expel Carbon Dioxide. In between, the air goes inside our wind pipe, through to our lungs where it is mixed with blood and is used up by our body for it`s growth and development. All of this happens simultaneously and never stops.

Something similar happens inside an engine : The engine breathes in oxygen rich air mixed with fuel through the intake system which comprises of the air filter and intake valves and breathes out CO, NOx and HCs through the exhaust valves and catalytic converter and then finally exits through the tail pipe. In between, the air and fuel mix is utilized to produce power and to do useful work. To do this process efficiently and consistently, an ECU is needed.

Functions Of An ECU:
Air/fuel mixture control: It determines the amount of air and fuel entering into the engine and accordingly plans the combustion process by varying the amount of fuel delivered through the Fuel Injectors.

Ignition timing control: There is a certain crank angle in the compression stroke which gives maximum torque output if the air/fuel mix is ignited at that point. ECU decides this and accordingly fires the spark plugs.

Idle speed control: It controls the idle speed of the engine depending on the ambient temperature, engine oil temperature and coolant temperature of an engine. This is the reason that when starting the engine for the first time in the morning, the RPM is more compared to normal idle RPM. This is controlled by the ECU.
Advantages & Disadvantages Of ECU:
* Precise metering of fuel for better mileage and lesser emissions
* Expensive
* Good throttle response for more responsive engine performance
* Difficult to work on

In September 2017, UM Motorcycles India had revealed plans to launch sub-500cc adventure motorcycles in India. It seems like the company is keeping its word as Bikers for Good has spotted two UM Adventure bikes in India.




The one with the alloy wheels seems to be the UM Hypersport and the other with the spoke wheels looks like a UM DSR II. The Hypersport is a supermoto-style motorcycle, while the DSR II is a proper off-road bike. UM Motorcycles India hasn?t revealed the launch dates of the bikes; however, initial reports suggest that the bikes are imported into the country to gauge customer feedback. That said, the UM DSR II is expected to be launched by the end of this year. The UM Hypersport, being a supermoto bike, is unlikely to be launched in India, this type of body style hardly sells in the country.

Internationally, both the bikes are available with multiple engine options, but the India-spec models are likely to get a 223 cc single-cylinder engine. The global-spec engine produces 16 bhp of max power at 7,500 rpm and 17.69 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm and comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. While the international-spec models get USD forks, the bikes seen here are equipped with conventional telescopic forks, along with a likely mono-shock at the rear. Both bikes get disc brakes at the front and rear along with an under-seat mounted exhaust muffler.

General Discussion / Why Touring Motorcycles ?
« on: July 01, 2018, 03:34:18 AM »
Long distance motorcycling usually takes a heavy toll not only on your machine but on your body as well. If you are planning a 500+ mile interstate tour, probably any bike, including a 50cc scooter may get you there. But prepare for countless repair and refueling stops and unbearable back ache (alongside other kinds of pain) before you get to your destination, say three days later.


If you don?t find such an endeavor worth the trouble, then you need to get yourself a touring bike.

WHAT IS A TOURING MOTORCYCLE?
This kind of motorcycle is usually designed for covering long distances on different types of terrain.

The performance and comfort of touring bikes falls somewhere between that of standard street bikes and sport bikes. Touring bikes are usually bigger than regular bikes and are usually more accessorized.

Some of the features that differentiate touring motorcycles from other bikes include:

A)Fuel tanks with a large capacity to allow long distances between fill-ups.
B)Excellent passenger accommodation;
C)upright seating position for comfort on long trips.
D)Windshield and fairings that protects against wind and adverse weather.
E)Engines with large displacements and great horsepower outputs.
Expansive luggage space.


TYPES OF TOURING MOTORCYCLES

DRESSERS / FULL-DRESS TOURERS

These bikes are distinguishable by their large size and ample bodywork. They generally have an extremely large windshields and fairings. This design has a very powerful engine with a large displacement.

Dressers are usually more accessorized than other types of touring bikes. GPS navigation systems, stereos and airbags are commonly installed on dressers.

These bikes are designed to ride on paved roads.

ADVENTURE TOURERS

This type of touring motorcycle is designed with a mix of on-road and off-road riding for long range touring.

They generally come with high ground clearance for off-road riding, heavy torque and large displacement engines, large fuel tanks, and are equipped for high speed and handling.

SPORTS TOURERS

These encompass a hybrid between touring bikes and superbikes which allows for high-speed, long-distance touring while offering greater sport performance than dressers and adventure tourers.

Sport tourers aim to achieve a delicate balance between performance and comfort and the difficulty of achieving this feat make them relatively hard to come by.

THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A TOURING MOTORCYCLE

If you are planning to buy a touring bike, there are some factors you need to weigh to ensure you get one that fits your needs perfectly:

1) Budget

You have to factor in the purchasing price of the bike as well as the cost of aftermarket modifications such as windshield, seat, luggage career etc.

Fuel consumption is also an important factor to consider.

2) Type of touring

If you do lots of camping trips then you will need a bike with extra luggage space for camping equipment. This factor will also call for a stronger bike to handle the extra weight.

If your kind of touring involves staying in hotels or other fixed accommodation, probably all the luggage you will need is a change of underwear so a large luggage capacity won?t be that necessary.

3) The kind of terrain you expect to frequent

For paved and mostly straight roads such as interstate highways, then a standard bike with 250-650 cc is good for you. For unpaved and twisting roads, the recommended bike would be a dual sport model with 650cc

4) Frequency and length of trips

These have a bearing not only on the luggage space, fuel range and comfort but also on the endurance that your bike needs.

For longer and more frequent touring, go for a model with a tough build, ease of maintenance and repair and a reputation for reliability.

If you are considering getting a used bike, less mileage is generally better but it may be wise to have a competent mechanic evaluate it for you.

5) Touring experience

Pro riders make riding look easy and fun, but you may find yourself contending with huge repair and medical bills.

If you have little riding experience especially on off-road trails it is advisable to begin with a small or mid-weight touring bike. Handling heavy bikes with a great deal of torque could be dangerous for beginners.

Why do I need a Two Wheeler Insurance?
Even though about 10 million new two-wheelers are bought every year in India, the development in roads and other transport infrastructures are still insufficient to accommodate all vehicles. With poorly implemented traffic rules and roads with bumps and potholes, even a skilled two-wheeler driver will struggle. In case of any unprecedented mishap like road accident, theft of vehicle or damage to third-party property, a two-wheeler insurance will help you to cover the costs.

Also, it is compulsory by law to have an insurance to drive your vehicle on Indian roads.

1)Types of Two-Wheeler Insurance in India

A third party two wheeler insurance policy or liability only policy is a basic policy required by the law. This policy covers the death, bodily injury and damage to property caused to a third-party.

A comprehensive policy or package policy covers loss or damage to the two-wheeler by natural or man-made causes and theft in addition to what is covered by a third-party policy. A comprehensive cover offers protection against natural calamities including floods, storms etc. and man-made calamities including riots, strikes and vandalism.

2)How is the Insurance Premium Calculated?

When it comes to two wheeler insurance premium, the features of your vehicle play an important part. The Cubic Capacity (CC) of the vehicle, city of purchase and the coverage opted for and cover opted for accessories are some of the factors that decide the premium. Add-on covers are also offered by select insurers and you must pay an extra premium for add-on covers.

3)What is IDV?

Insured Declared Value (IDV) is a value that remains constant during the policy term and it denotes the value for which the vehicle is insured. Below is the formula for calculating the IDV of a two wheeler.

IDV = {Manufacturer?s Ex-Showroom price + sales tax + cost of accessories not included in listed selling price} - {Cost of depreciation + registration & insurance costs}

4)Two Wheeler Insurance Renewal

It is important that you renew your insurance before the due date to maintain continuity. Most of the insurance companies offer one year insurance policies while select companies also offer long term insurance for two-wheeler. If you policy has lapsed, you must get your vehicle inspected in order to renew the insurance.

A)No-Claim Bonus and its Benefits
NCB or No-Claim Bonus is the discount on your premium if you have not made a claim during that year. Introduced to reward safe driving, policy holders can avail up to 50% discount for claim free years.

5) What happens if I sell my vehicle?
If you sell your vehicle, you will be able to transfer your two-wheeler insurance also. The new owner will have to notify the insurer within fourteen days after purchase and give all relevant information regarding the vehicle to transfer the insurance.

6)How do I file a Claim?
In case of an unfortunate mishap, you will have to contact your insurer through mail or phone to initiate the claims process. You will be asked to submit the claims form along with relevant documents like driving license, FIR (in case of theft) and estimate of repairs (in case of an accident). After the damage is assessed by a surveyor, you will receive suitable compensation from your insurer.

General Discussion / Dominar Price Hike
« on: June 27, 2018, 09:35:44 PM »
Prices increased by Rs 2,000 again

- Standard variant priced at Rs 1.46 lakhs

- ABS variant costs Rs 1.60 lakhs

Bajaj has once again raised the prices of the Dominar 400. The sports cruiser is Rs 2,000 more expensive than before.

The Dominar 400 is now priced at Rs 1.46 lakhs for the standard variant and Rs 1.60 lakhs for the ABS variant. It has been less than two months since Bajaj last increased the price of Dominar 400. The Dominar 400 was updated in January 2018 with three new paint schemes and a few visual updates, although the price had remained unchanged back then. Now though, the Dominar 400 costs Rs 4,000 more than it used to cost in 2017. Also, the Dominar 400 is Rs 10,000 pricier than the introductory price it was launched at, back in December 2016.

Bajaj had recently revealed that over 80 per cent of Dominar 400 customers go for the ABS variant, and that the standard variant will soon be phased out. However, the variant continues to be on sale for now. The Dominar 400 competes against other cruisers like the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X and the Mahindra Mojo UT300.

Initial Ownership Report / #My Reason to buy dominar
« on: June 16, 2018, 07:08:57 PM »
Hi,

My name is adarsh Raikar  lives in Bangalore and works for a MNC here . And this is my story for choosing Dominar.

Motorcycling grew up on me when I was on college days where one of my friend brought a MOJO when it was launched before it I never showed up interest on motorcycling.
We started going on rides on the bike short rides where even I used to ride it .and I was very happy and wanted to buy one motorcycle only to show off like whenever I used to ride mojo on Bangalore roads initial days people used to give attention because of hefty bike whenever we use to stop for signals petrol bunks people used to ask which bike was it . Later slowly passion was changed I started loving the motorcycle not only to show off but all other small things like it?s power. The way it handles road and it grew up on me such that every other weekend I used to rent some motorcycle from wicked ride I started with DUKE then next week I took a Himalayan and soo on .  Many time we have also rented a motorcycle and went for long rides like Mysore etc and now it was my time and wanted to purchase one for myself and from there the journey started.

My budget was roughly 2.5lk under which I had option of Himalayan,Mojo,Duke 250, Dominar I was very happy with Himalayan and had decided that I will go for that later I heard lot of news and complaints about the Himalayan to which I had to step back and look for other options.
I went on test drive with duke first I loved it somewhere I was not happy with the pricing 2.3 lakhs for a 250cc bike I thought was not worth that too without ABS .
 Second option mojo I had already riden it and loved it becyof monster like look and design but I was very lean and thin  and mojo was a hefty bike where it would never looked good for personality like me
My friends suggested me not to take the bike for this reason . I had to dump it now only possible option was Himalayan or Dominar I went on test rides on dominar all though I was not happy to ride the bike because I used to think it?s from Bajaj and it will not have soo much attention on roads and even worry about long terms. I rode the bike for 1km test ride and felt lot of vibrations on bike on test bike but I loved  the power output which it delivered  it was fast . Now I narrodoen my choice to two bike Himalayan or Dominar and somewhere I used to feel dominar suited me because of its power and also had safety features like ABS and Slipper clutch but was worried about vibrations I took the bike for a long  spin near kannakapura I rented one for a day . While returning I felt this bike was best and also showed some amount of public attention because of headlamps . After few days when I received my bonus I went ahead a booked a Matt black dominar and I am very happy with the decision and happy that I found this club where many dominar bikers like me joined
