That doesn't mean a complete engine, cyclinder kit includes Cylinder & Piston (with rings & piston pin)

Mr.Boss, Have you any idea or heard of 150 cc conversion on a 135cc engine? Just need some info on how it is done. Is the cylinder over bored to 150cc or the stroke is increased?

No Ilango, I haven't heard of it.
But I assume it to be rebore job rather than modifying the stroke.

I'm running a 165cc setup since 8 or 9? years now. Bore has been increased while maintaining the same stroke.

165 Vs 135

Actually I don't possess an RD or RD. I was just exploring a reed valve engine option for Lambretta. Just was curious to know how the oversize was being performed in RX engines.

I'm looking for a rear lowering shock absorbers. Current ones are little taller than the OE shocks and with 16" rear wheels they maintain the stock ride height. I Prefer a little lower stance, how good is Suzuki Max 100 shocks on RX? Anyone here using it?
