Default Hello ppl :)

Hi ppl,

I'm Rohit Koli, xbhp members might know me as rohit_180. Feels good to be on this forum and it also feels good to see how the Indian automobile scene is shaping up more in the performance direction, with motorcycles like comet on sale and cars like Skoda RS being available.

As far as my introduction goes, I'm a 21 yr old student pursuing my engg degree from RAIT Nerul. I always had a something in my heart for automobiles since i was a toddler. Used to make strange 2 stroke sounds from my mouth lol. At 19 I used to ride a Pulsar 180 which was supposed to be very powerful and all but later on I came to know of a bike which simply died out of production due to illiterate mechs and mileage mongers, yess the YAMAHA RD350.

I recently bought a '84 RD350HT and here are its specs:

High compression Heads with dialled in MSV

TKR Pistons & LONG Conrods

Crankshaft lightened by 500gms

Digital ignition with custom curve designed by Ron Chinoy of rddreams.com

Exhaust port duration has been increased by 3 degrees for a much wilder topend powerband, revvs out to 9000rpm. I guess the peak power is somewhere around 40+bhp.

Infact the whole engine has been done by RDDreams.

Well thats about it, any RD freaks out here? If any from Thane Mulund area get in touch.
