Purchased Lightning 535 cc Aug 2001 and have done 46000 kms. I love Lightning for strong low and midrange torqe and fast pick up. I have installed original royal enfield front disk brake and for that I had to change wheels and shocker legs. I have rebuilt engine two times and now I have fitted 500 cc piston with helper ring since original 535 cc cylinder kit is not avilable now. When I opened up the engine I discovered that crank assembly is very heavy and weighs 15 kg. I really enjoy riding this bike, still It easily defeats Pulsars and Yamahas in steet drag race. Recently I have fitted endurance front and rear gas charged shock absorbers and bike handling has improved a lot. I hve also changed handle and meters with that of thunderbird and have also changed seat with thunderbird which is a lot more confortable as compared to be stock two piece seat. I have also changed petrol tank and side tool boxes with electra and I have purchased a side car from Cozy which I attached at times.

CAN TOP 79 MPH (I'VE DONE FULL CLOCK). THE ENGINE AND SPEEDOMETER ARE NOT RESTRICTED. YOU WILL BLOW THE ENGINE AS IT HEATS UP TOO QUICK AFTER 110 KMS ON THE SPEEDO. THE ENGINE WILL SMOKE AND YOU WILL FEEL LOSS OF POWER.

ACHTUNG: ENFIELD DOES NOT PROVIDE 535 CC ENGINES ANY MORE. I HAD TO REPLACE WITH BRAND NEW 500 CC BLOCKS.

MINE WAS A 2000 MODEL ONE I TOOK OFF A GUY WHO HAD DONE 2000KMS. WELL, YOU CAN REPLACE ALL THING ENFIELD.

BUT IT COSTS LIKE A CAR. THE NEW ONES ARE DIFFERENT NOW. THE BRAKES ARE NOT ON THE SAME SIDE AS BEFORE. NEW ONES ARE MORE ELECTRONIC.

NOT TRIED A NEW ONE YET.
