The Bajajusa Chetak Rides On
By 2012, it has become apparent that the Bajaj Chetak in America is now an orphan scooter.  Scooterists will need to  rely on one another more than ever to keep their faithful steeds on the road.  Parts and supplies are disappearing off the shelves of former Bajaj Chetak dealers.  This site will be a place to collect survival information for these important scooters.  Ride safe.

Man, was I sorry to learn Bajaj stopped making their scooters! I rode a 1990 model in India over 10,000 miles and it never let me down. (Seriously!) Bought one of the last 4T models a few years ago back here in the states, and am shocked at how rare the parts seem to be, (not that I've had to replace anything.) Something is very wrong with this picture. Here's why: There must be millions of Chetaks still on the roads in India today, Indians are frugal, and believe me, will repair everything-good for them. So why are parts so hard to find in the U.S? I'm convinced a person could readily find all Chetak parts in India, maybe not genuine Bajaj, but at least aftermarket. Will check this out next time I go to India. And: KUDOS to whoever developed this website for those of us who ride the best scooter in the world. Humara Kal, Humara Aj, Humara Bajaj!

Parts are so hard to find because the importers stock has been exhausted and there is no longer a distribution network in the USA, Java Cycles in Atlanta, GA has indicated they have had success with no import arrangements. Note: I am still looking for replacement information for the clutch parts which can need replacement as soon as 10,000 miles. Keep us informed of your India findings.

I am in need of the switch assembly for the neutral light indicator located at the transmission. Do you have any suggested potential sources for this part?
