Final outcome, with few minor works pending. Yet to have a proper photo-shoot

Excellent and looks like just out of showroom

How difficult was it to source genuine Yamaha parts? and from where?
I'm having hard time in Bangalore finding genuine parts.

Yamaha A.S.S support for several parts (cosmetic items, and few mechanical parts as well) and for the other parts we are depending on the local stores and online sellers. I got parts from below sellers
Chennai Two Wheelers Tambaram (Chennai)
indiaspares.in

From B'lore are you facing issues in sourcing spares for RX? Gee Bee Auto spares is one stop solution (isn't it?)

List of pending items:
- Handle bar top cover : Broken the cover that I bought (over tightening)
- Tank cover : No storage compartment, only to cover the tank top portion (same as my other RXs)
- Horn harness routing : Yet to purchase the sleeve
- To paint the black ring in clutch & magnet case (around the YAMAHA monogram)
- OE Seat (If I'm getting a new one)
- New oil pump : Old one wasn't working. Yet to open the pump and check for the issue (currently running on 4% premix)

Recent snaps. I personally hate the tank cover.

Quick update:
Bike sold!!!

After a lengthy Heart vs Mind debate passed her to another hand, a family friend.

Planned for 5 speed conversion and landed up with 5s sticker theme. Got a used GB and not satisfied with the condition and sold it immediately (after losing few bucks)
Lesson learned: Avoid online shopping (especially for used goods) going by the snaps and verbal promises.

Decided against 5s conversion and ended up having 2 bikes with similar (same) spec and age, only difference being this bike is completely stock and the other is mechanically stock (and better than this bike) with contrast painting. Emotionally more attached with that bike for various reasons and decided to sell this bike with only 1 condition, buyer should be from known circle or an enthusiast who could maintain her with passion. A month back one of our family friend said he is looking to buy an RX and wanted me to get him a good one. Called him and the deal was freezed in no time.

5s bug didn't end. Started looking for stock 5s RX and a couple of days back came across a 2000 model RX135 5S in Olx and Facebook. Some Whatsapp chats, few phone calls and last night inspected the bike, fully satisfied, paid token advance, fixed delivery time, and this (early) morning paid the balance and got her home. Yes, 00 RX135 5s replaced this 98 RX135 4s

More details and snaps to follow in a new thread, shortly.
