After my blogs on performance parts, innovative accessories and Bullet mechanics I felt there was need for some good tutorials for Enfield UCE engine. How much ever I went through the net, I could not find any good channels that covered the basics tutorials for maintaining your Bullet. With that there came the need for the products that could help maintain your Bullet. So I have started this blog as a means for covering both these aspects. Tutorials for maintaining Bullet and Product reviews for tools that help in maintenance.

Turn on the fuel valve to its on position.
Go for a ride.
However common problems that you may encounter are given below:
1. Motorcycle is not starting
Turn on choke, start the motorcycle and then turn off choke
2. Motorcycle is still not starting
You may have had the fuel valve in reserve position earlier and put it in on position after cleaning. Put the fuel valve to reserve and start the motorcycle.
3. Motorcycle is still not starting
You may have had the fuel valve in reserve position earlier and the only fuel you had was in the carb which you drained out. Push your Bullet to the nearest petrol station and have it filled. Let the experience be a reminder to fill up the fuel tank as soon as it is in reserve.
4. Could not locate the drain pipe and now my floor is soaked with petrol
The procedure should be performed in a garage or a place where the floor is supposed to get dirty. Thank god that your floor is not soaked in grease or engine oil and move on with life.

  1. Thanks a lot, Bhai. Please keep writing posts. One of my suggestions is instead of writing different blogs for every section of bullet, it'd be nice if you can maintain one blog and create different posts for each category. Keep up your good work. Thanks again!

  2. The write up is missing the whole opening up the carb unit and cleaning part. Its just the draining procedure in case you get some water in your carb accidentally.

    1. Hey reader,

      Opening up the carb is actually not necessary in UCD 33 carbs. As you can directly clean it out by draining. In case there is any particular reason for which you think opening up a carb is required do tell me and I will write a tutorial on it as well.
