I got some free time to work on my RX again.

Oil pump was leaking and I couldn't get the oil seal for a while. A couple of weeks back when we went around hunting parts for RX100 restoration, fortunately we got a couple of oil seals. Last evening I opened the Oil pump and found oil is leaking at both the oil seals and packing.

Pump taken out

Dismantled it completely and cleaned them with petrol.

To my knowledge the answer is "NO"
But if you are OK with a used one, I can get during my next visit to Pudupet.

New/Used anything would work. Please look for the spring alone, this is a spare pump which is lying around. Also a set of oil seals for me

It is really good to see that you are getting oil pump related spares, maybe the Rx 100 ones are still available. But to my bad-luck Rx 135 5 speed oil pumps have vanished from everywhere. I am hunting for a 5 speed oil pump since almost 2 years now. Even my oil pump has a leak but the lack of micro spares makes it difficult to repair the original one. AFAIK 5 speed oil pumps are smaller than 135 4 speed ones (not sure about this though).

I doubt the oil seal will remain same for all 3 oil pumps (100 / 135 4s / 135 5s) and the packing may be different. Let me check if I could get the oil seal & packing kit for 5 speed.

It sure is different in all models. 100, 135 4 speed old, 5 speed and 4 speed catcon model, all have slightly different oil pumps.

Water entered the carburetor after I drove the bike under heavy down pour last evening. Bike struggled to accelerate and lost breath when the throttle is opened. Carburetor cleaning done this morning.

Wow, looks nice. I cannot seem to identify that disc rotor.
What combination of parts are you using for the front disc set-up?

Rotor is taken from a old Bajaj Caliber Croma, I also have another decent condition rotor from Pulsar UG2

Yet to decide on the part combination, I have few sets purchased a while ago
Hub : Pulsar Classic (Used one)
Spokes : Pulsar Classic
Rim : Sandar (New, had a Hero Rim purchased an year ago but it started rusting)
Forks : Pulsar Classic (Used legs + New fork tube & Springs)
Rotor : Caliber Croma / Pulsar UG2 (both used)
Caliper : Endurance / Bybre (Endurance is new one & Bybre is taken from a running bike)
Master Cylider : Endurance / KBX (Endurance is new one, KBX taken from a running bike)

Hi,
Saw your restoration work. Very neat and good.
Due to recent floods, One of my colleagues Yamaha RX135 was drowned.
The Vehicle should have been inside water for 3 days.
Do you thin we can restore it? Is the restoration worth it?

How much do you think that it would take to totally bring it up from scratch?
