50,000+ km – First Time RE Thunderbird 350 Handle Bar Right-Hand Switch Replacement

50,000+ km – that’s what speedometer was showing and as said before, I was at Ishna Wheels at Nehru Nagar, Vile Parle (West), Mumbai for Royal Enfield Thunderbird Twinspark 350 servicing.. I had already taken an appointment.

Jesu – The service advisor was present at the counter. He came and thoroughly inspected the motorbike.. gave a rough estimate but more than that he showed Handle Bar Right-Hand Switch – which was loose. The lock (red-circle in the below image) was broken and the switch was not available with them.

Right-Hand Switch Module for RE Thunderbird 350

That means I have to purchase it from any other Royal Enfield authorized service centre or from any other Royal Enfield spare-parts shop.

I enquired with Sharda Motors and Sons (Goregaon, Mumbai). They do servicing only for Royal Enfield motorbikes and sell Royal Enfield spare-parts too.

The switch was available with them for Rs. 280/- and it is original – The reception person said.

Before going to Sharda Motors and Sons I enquired with another Royal Enfield spare-parts shop and the switch price was for Rs. 300.. The make – Minda.

I dialed Sharda Motors again and a question – What’s the make of the switch?

The owner of the shop enhanced knowledge by saying – Royal Enfield only make Engines.

But if I remember correctly, Royal Enfield spare-parts are neatly packed inside Royal Enfield marked packets/boxes.

Anyway, whatever.. After servicing at Ishna Wheels, next day I reached Sharda Motors and purchased the switch.

Fitting charges – Rs. 70 which I think is little more. Rs. 50 is Ok.

Anyway, readers – you must be wondering how Handle Bar Right-Hand Switch look like?

The above shown switch is the original one which came with the brand new Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 in the year 2010 and the make was – Minda.

Now original one is fixed too and working fine. Thanks to Sharda Motors and Sons.

One request to Royal Enfield – please display Royal Enfield spare-parts at your website with price. Possible?

Note: Royal Enfield display accessories with price at their website but I wish them to display spare-parts and its price also.

One more question to Royal Enfield – How they can help/join so that in coming months..

The journey continues..
