Has anyone done an upgraded to their engines ie the big bore kit to make it a 462cc, what is the performance like and does it make a difference.
Thank you.

It and some other goodies are on the way so I'll let ya know.

For some context for ya, of all the bikes I've owned Himalayan is one of only two bikes that satisfied right off the showroom floor. It was and is "right". YMMV.

After, idunno, maybe 1500 miles I adjusted the handlebars 1 or 2 mm. It fit my needs, my riding style and ergonomics that good.

The farkles I've added were not to correct or improve the bike, they are for my convenience.

I'm trying the big bore kit mostly because I can.

There is a write up and I think also a YouTube video by Hitchcocks who provide some dyno results from memory, oh just found it ... here it is


Bear in mind they are the ones who developed the kit. They are Royal Enfield specialists and have done performance kits for many RE models over the years.

I got a stock Himalayan handlebar top clamp and flipped it putting it underneath the handlebar. It’s now the perfect height for me while just riding on the street or standing on the foot pegs riding off road. If I remember right with the extra long bolts it cost was just under $20 three years ago for all the bits.
