Pulsar 220 problems or issues found and their solutions

In this post we are clubbing the more rampant issues of pulsar 220 together along with their probable resolutions.This post is dedicated to all bikers who own Bajaj Pulsar 220.


Issues found in Pulsar 220

1.Engine is very harsh and it is hard to change gears

If you feel your engine is very harsh and gears are hard,change to good quality semi synthetic or synthetic oils.This will reduce vibrations and will improve gear shift feel.

2.Bike doesn’t go over 120kmph

Every 220 can reach upto 140kmph easily.If your 220 cant go  beyond 120,then get your bike tuned properly.Tuning makes the engine more healthier. Dont tune engine for best performance or mileage.Make an optimum balance b/w two.

3.Continuous tik tik sound from the engine and less performance

Ask the service men to tighten your bike’s tappets.

4.Bike returns a fuel efficiency of only 28kmpl

A healthy 220 will return mileage of 32-38kmpl.If you are getting lesser than that check if you are running rich on the air-fuel ratio (AFR) and set your AFR to the optimum position by altering the AFR screw on the carburetor.

5.Bike’s engine goes off while riding and comes to life upon restarting after a little while

This is an issue service center men fail to detect properly.If you have similar issue then just get your carburetor float needle free.Better if you overhaul your carburetor.

6.Steering feels heavy and unnatural

This is an issue with the cone set.Check the cone set and verify and change  if it has become culprit.

7.Screeching sound from rear brakes

This is caused due to  little faults with the stock rear KBX calipers.For solving it change your disc setup to Bybre’s and remember to change the complete setup with disc,disc pads, oil box, pipe and calipers.

8.Less stopping power for rear brakes

This case happens for most of 220’s.But when it is reported to bajaj people,they say that it is kept low for avoiding disc locking while hard braking.This problem can be reduced by changing disc setup to the latest Bybre’s(dont  forget to change complete setup with disc,disc pads, oil box, pipe and calipers).

9. Nothing happens when the starter button is pushed multiple times.

It is not a problem.It is a safety feature of  bike.After 3 back to back cranks, it disengages.It is for saving your battery and starter motor. Before giving each recrank give proper time.

10. Bad ‘khrr khrr’ sound as if some electricals are misbehaving

Check the source of sound.It will be probably from starter motor.If  its from starter motor, get the starter motor changed.

11.Oil leak from gearbox

In some 220’s we can see oil drops on the ground and on the frame just below the gearbox.This oil leak is caused  from the Neutral Switch not from the gear box.It is caused due to inappropriate sized small round rubber sealing in the neutral switch.If there is oil leak, take the stock small rubber ring out and install a fatter appropriate sized one.

And if you still sees oil drops and if your neutral switch is running dry there is one more opening for the oil after removing the crankcase.Check whether the sealing is tightly fixed.Before checking the stock rubbers,make sure that the oil you see is engine oil.In most of the cases,the oil you see will be  chain lube or chain spray that gets spilled onto it.

12.Oil leaks from the block or cylinder head

This issue is reported by many owners who use high quality synthetic oils like Motul 300V. It is an unresolved issue from Bajaj.This problem can be reduced by  installing a better gas kit along with a sealant to prevent the leakage.The leakage cant be completely resolved but this will reduce the leakage.This method is not recommended as it would unnecessarily require your cylinder’s opening up.

13.Bike wobbles at high speeds

  • Check the bike’s alignment
  • Check wether Cone set is culprit
  •  Check that rims are not bent and tires have adequate treads and pressure.

14.Bike doesn’t start on mornings

220 comes with an auto choke system.When engine is cold, temperature sensor sends signals of activation to activate auto choke.So in cold mornings this auto choke helps bike getting started.If your bike doesn’t start on mornings,check whether temperature sensor or auto choke is malfunctioning.

    i also hav pulsor 220f and my problem is notabove all problem unique problem when i start my bike in the morning engine sound is goood but when it starts to run hot then som sound somes from upper side of the engine and it depends on rpm.sound becomes loud when rpm is higher and sound becomes low when rpm begins to fallto normal temperature..but not while riding when brake the bike in gear and my bike is still on then i hear som tak kat kat kat sound from upper side of the engine.but when my bikeengines becomes cold then no sound comes..is is normal in every 220f bikes

    1. Shekhar Dixit

      If your bike’s idling (Race) remains low at cold engine temperature and high at warm engine tempearture. then you have engine compression related problems.
      the Kat kat noise you described is the Tappet clearances noises coming from engine Head, set them 0.05mm for intake valve and 0.10 mm for exhaust.
      test the engine compression by performing compression test.
      Also check the idling (Race) is stable or fluctuating between 1000 to 1300 rpm, if it is fluctuating it’s a clear sign of low cylinder compression.

      1. suraj chavan

        My rpm is fluctuating..I turned my AFR SCREW…more vibrations from engine plz help…..

        1. Gaja

          Check the power supply to spark plug a pin will be loosened check and fix it.it will be below the tank(right side).faced same problem.

  2. Anand Kumbhar

    Dear Sir / Madam,

    I have Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTSI FI of model 2007. It was working fine before 5-6 days but suddenly while going on the bike, it got stopped (loosing ignation). I tried to restart it, but it was giving some noise in the engine or chain khar-khar-kar voice. At present the vehicle is not working due to that problem and parked in parking area of my house. I shown to some mechanics but they are not in a position to identify the correct problem and it’s solution also. Request to guide me accordingly so that my bike will start running. Thanks in advance for proper solution.

    1. lohithgowda

      make sure ur engine plates are changed and make sure ur engine has a good engine oil and pls be advisied that this problem mostely happens because off the engine oil and the plates so pls get that fixed and please be advisied show it to the authorised dealers off bajaj authorised dealers

      1. tinoy

        nd wat m8 b d costs fr d starter coil nd cdi

    2. sayan

      It is a very known problem for 2007 to 2009 pulsar 220’s. As for my experience your bikes start-up motor or which u can call it as self motor is malfunctioned. Visit to nearby bajaj mechanic or simply you can go for changing the star-up motor. I hope your problem will be solved

    3. vamsireddy

      leake some petrol in the waste pipe via boult beside the corpenter i think its over flow the petrol then it gets tup tup tup sounds

    Plzz give ans to this problem….plzzzZ

    1. lohithgowda

      nothing as such please have a check with ur battery wen off the battery should shoe 12.346 and when the bike is on (ideling) it should show 14.56 if its correct then have a check with the wiring nothing wrong with the bike

    2. Adarsh

      Check the cable connected to the self-start … May be it is close to engine and might have burned ….

    3. nawaz

      Bro check ur selfmotter boshes when the bushes problem is tr that time also its mack lick similar problem’s in pulsar

    1. mrck123

      while driving at highway my when i reach speed above 70 my bike engine starts to vibrate some say that i dont know know how to shift the grears at right time is there any fixed time toshift gears?

  4. Shyam

    The bike vibrates or wobbles, because of the rear wheel offset, which the stupid Bajaj techs have failed to fix and are covering up like the respondent above saying to look for cone set issues. This is a design problem and they have now introduced a tilted swing arm to fool the public. The riders end up with pain in the shoulder, elbow or knuckle.

  5. habib

    i have pulsar 220f. Model : plasma blue.Bike doesn’t go over 120kmph. Now what can i do?

    1. hamza

      Dear brother ,
      your bike is little bit running lean .Better go to service center and ask them to do the needful.

    2. lohithgowda

      unless the red light is on on the spdo meter need not have to worry so chillaxe

  6. sunny phull

    just now i bought a new pulsar 220f in diwali. The problem is while driving the main stand of the bike is scratch the speed-breaker on an normal speed & also taking right turn. & front faring also not sounds good KHT-KHT like this.

    Pls advice.

    1. nakul

      m also facing same prblm yaar :/

      whn givin pick-up @ lowr rpm engin got roughness

      1. Harish G S

        Dear friends.
        in 220f pulsar I also face the same problem like center stand teach to speed breaker.
        I have a solution for this problem, do one thing they are given rubber bush for center stand remove that and fixit revers side your problem is solve almost 99% it will not teach any speed breakers.

    2. RajSekhar alluri

      1 month back i purchased 220f .. i am facing this problem. in my village we cant expect plain road for more than 2-3 km and plenty of speedbrks in front of every house and starting and ending street..

      so in order to solve stand problem i just removed grip between stand and other point(which lay on it) and keep any other small peace of grip or any other in order to avoid sound between them.. if it not solved remove stand completely… but dnt try to do welding or some other it may effect to silence and engine Beating sound

      Rajsekhar alluri (Andhra Pradesh)

  7. Biraj Gautammy

    too much sound from vizor and handle bar is loose … some one moved my bike when it was locked , do u know how can it be repaired ?

  8. tanma kadam

    I own 220 frm 3 years but as d bike is getting older n older d firing of bike is changing as per ……..now its not smooth like it used to be a different type of sound cums as if nuts r loose or some parts of engine r loose …..I took it to garage but he told DAT pulsars get this noise after 3 yrs ….m worried help me out

    1. lohithgowda

      just show it to the bajaj authorised dealers near ur hme

  9. Sums

    The main stand issue in pulsar can be solved, just turn the rubber upside down where main stand rest below silencer. Top part should be down and main rubber should be up ( inverted). It takes two minutes only to do this, now with pillion rider also main stand doesn’t drag in speed beakers or in rough road neither scratches while bending in corners. Don’t worry about thand sound since upper part also contains rubber which will prevent that sound in bumps….cheers guys

    1. Dhaivik

      I have done this change, inverted the rubber bush. But still I have the problem, with a pillion rider, the stand still touches the bumps. Any other suggestions on this?

  10. Sums

    Mr. Tanma Kadam, For lower power or more noise from engine you have to use the best mobile with specified grades, then change the both spark plug, check/ replace air filter and air fuel mixture which should me balanced, tune engine, also try to polish your cylinder heads, if necessary change check or replace timing chain (cam chain), overhaul the carburetor, check n adjust valve. If your bike has crossed 30000 km better flush the engine with engine flush oil found in market and use better quality of fuel, I think this would help your pulsar to feel like new….cheers

    1. Djay

      Make sure dey change the coneset in front of you and correctly adjusted,,,dnt trust bajaj authorised service dealers,,,the work dey do jus sucks,Best advice giv a normal mechanic and make sure wat work he does infront and take the delivery of your bike,the best advice for ur benefit !

  16. jason

    I have Pulser 220 FI 2008 and Ignition red light remains on even while driving – is it a air filter or engine oil or FI problem

    Please advise it is very urgent since not all bajaj service center are servicing 220 FI.

  18. lohithgowda

    listen i am not able to stop the petrol leak from the over flow pipe and the white pipe which is actually sealed so can u please help me on that

  19. Amit

    hi guys, my pulsar 220 is now not performing good. from last few days i found that it running heavy,consuming more fuel and reduced acceleration. more throttle -less speed and power

  20. Mrittunjoy Chowdhury


    My bike is working absolutely fine except for one niggling issue that keeps annoying me is the “Low fuel oil level” indicator on the dash (extreme far right icon) that runs all the time on my pulsar 220F DTSI 2009 edition. I checked with PBK service guys and they say when the oil does get thin and the engine pot does give empty some oil when this trigger gets the low fuel activated.

    Please Please … and Puhleez help me .. I am done and dusted with forums and blogs.

  21. rajan adhikari

    My bike is working well but it has the problem in headlight. When I turn on the headlight only dimmer glows whenever i turn the plug for upper that do not work and also the pass light do not work.. what is the problem.. Can u help me?

    1. Manoj

      Clean your disk by hand washing and then take a carbon paper (polish paper) and rob it on disk as we polish break shoe in 150 then it starts working

  23. natesh kumar

    My Pulsar 220F is not going beyond 126 km/h . I want to know how to tune the engine.

  25. mubbashir motiwala

    Sir , I m takeing new bike which i should take pulsar 220f or karizma ZMR 2014

    1. Flaming Wheels

      Stay off the Pulsar 220F, go for the 2014 Karizma ZMR or the Honda CBR250R. Please stay off any Bajaj product if you want any peace of mind.

      1. Jebin C Thaliyan Post author

        Hero and Honda products are always at best quality but they are more pricier than Bajaj. If one needs a super quality bike made in India go for Honda and if you need more power in a cheaper price tag choose Bajaj. and if you need something between them choose Hero.

    2. Jebin C Thaliyan Post author

      It depends upon you. When compared both:-

        more power
        low mileage
        low build quality
        low price
        more maintenance


        low power
        perfect touring bike
        good seating posture
        good mileage
        more resale price
        more costlier
        less maintenance

    I am facing serious issues of vibrations on my 1 month old P220F, its 1300 kms driven already. Irritating vibrations at the foot-pegs, tank, seat. Bike has been to the service center on 4 occasions already with no improvement. Not even able to maintain 80 kmph on highways due to vibrations. Bajaj engineer Mr Santosh Ayachit from Pune says this is normal on a Pulsar. My sincere advise to all riders, please don’t buy Bajaj products, its utter crap.

    1. Jebin C Thaliyan Post author

      Now the company says it has improved the build quality. More products are coming from Bajaj sooner so let’s wait and see how Bajaj has improved their products.

    i have a problem with my 220S. the engine oil gets reduced after long rides. there is no visible oil leakage through the oil seals n other places. i feel the oil is evaporating. does anybody have this problem. lately i found the engine to be a little rough and when checked the oil level to my surprise i was not able to find any oil in the engine. should i keep toping up or does this happen after long rides. have anybody experienced my same problems pls do reply. thanks.

    1. Shekhar Dixit

      Did you feel any white smoke when accelerating hard? If it is then your motorcycle piston rings are worn.
      Simply open one of the spark plug and check it is wet with an oil or not, wet spark plug means oil is getting past the piston rings and burning in the combustion chamber.
      All you need to do is fitting new piston along with new cylinder block and all necessary maintenance like head decarbonise.

  28. shoolpani

    I have a Pulsar 220 Fi edition byke. I have a strange problem. When i start my bike in the morning it starts fine and runs fine for few minutes but after that at low gears it starts behaving very strange. I seems it has no power. Sometimes even after increasing acceleration it does not give any pickup. Many a times it gives jerk and all of a sudden it will increase in power and when i stich gear then the same problem again.
    Its really trouble some to ride bike till 3 gears.
    Can somebody suggest what might the problem be?

  29. anand

    Hello, I am thinking of buying 220F by exchanging my 2012 Discover 100cc.
    I dont plan to push the bike to high speeds.
    I plan to go on long drive of 400km (800km total with return) every month along with normal commuting.
    Is a 220F a good choice. I am choosing it over 180 just for its bulkier looks.
    My objective is to keep it for long time. Hope it can work well even after 10 years.

    Hi to the gurus here. I own a Pulsar 220 F 2010 model, there is some strange issue i have found. Sunddenly the bike tends to lack power just like it happens when you are out of petrol. I full my tank every month and there is no issue of petrol. 6 months earlier I had the same problem when i went to a local tech he said there is some problem with coil settings etc, changed my spark plugs its was rectified but I dont have perment solution to this. Please let me know whats the exact cause of this problem and what are the measure that I have to take to cure it.

  55. Sarthak kumar

    Pulsar 220 is a good bike . It do have power and pickup. But the main problem in pulsar 220 is its front kid(fairing) vibration. I get really angry with its irritating noise. And the tank also vibrates badly.

  56. Vikas Chauhan

    I have p 220f, and my bike has problem that it shows randomly low engine oil indication in meter display. But oil is optimised amd its upto the level.

    1. Saurabh

      Same here,
      But this is not a problem as bajaj’s mechanics told me that this bike is with auto-choke.
      This is because of that auto-choke. No problem at all.

  83. Saurabh

    Hi guys,
    I have purchased a P220F this year and I am doomed. I have already changed the clutch plate on 5500KM due to hard gear shifting problems (As service center advised me)
    Now when I crossed 80KMPH and try to go 100 – 110KMPH instantly, the RPM meter suddenly crosses 11 and engine is making sounds like bike is neutral and we are giving accelerator. Then slowly slowly engine picks up the speed. This is very scary.
    Please help me out on this
    Cant wait for the 24th EMI
    after that I will burn this bike and post the video on bajaj fb page

    Beside this ,
    As this bike is new and under warranty, but bajaj;s asshole mechanics are not doing it under warranty.
    Please help.

    When I rev hard and go in straight line for few secs to touch 100kmph and suddenly break in to turn according to track left/right, my p220 handle becomes stiff and refuses to turn and I have to apply full force to turn right/left according to track, and while I am exiting corner to again throttle hard in straight line, my p220 handle again becomes stiff and refuses to return to center position. I am done changing the cone set at 19k kms and my current reading is 21k. What is the issue? Basically maneuvering left/right has become to stiff on my p220. I feel like my handle gets fixed/locked in one position when I am at high speed in straight line. Please give me some solution.
