comment Pulsar 150 drifts right side
A twisted fork is better replaced. The entire front fork assembly with a new triple tree would put you back 7-9k INR though. Have you checked the front wheel wear? If it has worn unevenly, you would see such a problem regardless of the condition of the forks. I know of a decent mechanic in Chennai at Besant Nagar beach called Vallavan. At the far end of the beach. Do not have his number, will try to source it.

comment My ER6 was lowered to accomodate a shorter driver than me. How can I adjust the height?
The front fork triple clamp could have been lowered (very slightly). Also, the ER6's only have preload adjustment in the rear, so a softer setting would see the bike slightly lower than the hardest setting. There are aftermarket suspension links available for the rear, check if these have been installed on your bike. Additionally, the seat itself could have been replaced/modified with one having lesser padding. Do let us know.

comment Where can a tire be leaking if no nail/screw?
As a precaution, consider replacing the valve stems in any case. Cheap to do, and you will be able to eliminate the stems as the cause.

comment Tata Nano — why do they have a tendency of self combusting?
Sifting through some other comments by Tata Motors rep's was needed though. Their first reaction to burning nano's was that there was some foreign elements in the exhaust pipe which combusted and caused the fires, I think these were just knee-jerk responses to shift the blame from the manufacturer to the dealer, as the dealer is responsible for ensuring such things are covered in the pre-registration/delivery-inspections.
