Hi, I have just joined. Peter Whalley from Hampshire England. I own a year old Intercepter bought brand new, last weekend I bought a second hand 2016 Bullet 500 Electra CL EFI DLX. It would be Helpful to know what other organisations, such as parts providers and for instance Haynes manuals regard my model. It doesn't seem to be straightforward, is it and Electra, Bullet or Classic. The owners manual I was provided with states Bullet Classic EFI. Mine is not the same as the picture on the manual?3937

It’s an Electra all right.
The engine components should be the same as any 500 unit construction engined bike. The frame and seat are the standard bullet (only difference being the side boxes for air filter and battery and the little tool box).

Thanks , I was worried I had bought the wrong Haynes Manual, however reading it , my bike is designated Electra E5 and G5. So I am happy now. I'm very impressed with the bike, it such a lovely experience wafting along these Hampshire Lanes in areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cant wait for next summer.

Hello and welcome to this form.

Yes,what you have is a beautiful Royal Enfield Bullet G5 Deluxe EFI. I know as I own one myself. Mine is a 2010 and yours is the last year made a 2016. The frame is a litte different and the tool boxes, seat, air filter box, 19”wheels front and back, fuel tank knee pads, fenders, side covers, and the oil filter cover is two bolt not three bolt like on the Classic. These bikes from what I’ve been told by the East Indian parts dealers is it was made for the USA market only. So some body parts are hard to impossible to find. I’ve been looking for a good rear chrome fender for nine years now with no luck.

The G5 rear mudguards I believe are the same as in:
2006 Electra X (AVL engine) -UK, Australia etc
2007 Thunderbird-India
Ask Hitchcock’s.
