The Bajajusa Chetak Rides On
 
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! - Bill


Parts are so hard to find because the US importer's stock has been exhausted and there is no longer a distribution network in the USA.  Java Cycles in Athens, GA has indicated they have had success with a new import arrangement for parts. 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!

Thank you, but it will only improve if other riders share their collective knowledge to keep their rides on the road.

On the contrary. I found this place on ebay but here's the direct link. They are in India but I found an elusive Chetak rear hub through them. I didn't give them enough info so the first one they sent was the wrong size. When I told them this they sent me anothere free and told me I could keep the other one. Shipping was cheaper the U.S.! Plus they know their scoots.
