I have very good experience with my pulsar 220 past 9 years. Slowly, the ride becomes firmer. I could feel every bits and stones on my butt so, thinking of the age of the bike I changed the rear suspension with a brand new one(both). But still it so hard, i do not like to ride it like i used to. It should eat up tiny bumps nd minute broken patch of the road.

What should i do to fix it.

  • Are you using a different brand of tire? Or different pressure?

  • You write "I changed the rear suspension." What parts did you change? Did you replace the bushes at both ends of the suspension strut(s) ? Commented Mar 16, 2019 at 8:09
  • You may have worn out the seat after 9 years...

  • I am using the same brand of tire with the same air pressure, its old now 3 years maybe. @David i have changed the whole set, as in totally new. and yeah seats are fine I guess. Maybe changing the ball bearing & lube at the connector might help? Commented Mar 18, 2019 at 8:48

Get your rear wheel aligned and weight balanced...your problem will be solved

  • Downvoted. Rear wheel alignment and balancing will have no effect on suspension harshness. Commented Mar 7, 2023 at 5:19
