How were you able to fit the DCM reflector onto the original headlight dome.

I bought an Eicher reflector (Lumax) and I was able to successfully put that into the headlight rim. However, the reflector bulges/protrudes a little more at the back (more with the bulb), and I am not able to put the reflector into the dome with all the wire/connector inside the dome.

Can you share pics of the reflector with the bulb, bulb holder and the connecting wire?

2 solutions, either cut the HL basket to accomodate the protruding socket or use the HL sockets from Enfield (only insulated connectors, no socket)

Thanks Boss.

I tried fixing the reflector with just the bulb (HS1) - without connectors or holder, and still found it difficult. May be I'll have to cut the headlight dome.

Is it possible to fit a bigger HL dome/basket from another vehicle?

Please check the TVS XL Super HL basket. I hope that doesn't come with the dimple for Speedo cable.
PS: XL super HL basket comes with plastic threaded portion for mounting the basket on HL legs. To mount it in RX (with indicators) you should remove the threaded portion.

For RX100, is it possible to use the RX135 magnet and coil for better light? If possible, what other parts do I need add/replace - I think I'll need the CDI and wiring harness of 135 at the minimum.

Are there any way(s) to figure out if the magnet & coil are of 6v or 12v RX100?

Possible, many RX100 are running with RXG/135 12V electrical system

Are you running with 6V setup currently? If so, apart from the above said parts RR unit and all bulbs to be replaced.

In one of my RX135, "12V" is mentioned in the coil itself but my other 135 doesn't have any marking.

RX100 6V coil will came with a bigger connector and RXG/135 12V coil comes with a relatively smaller connector. Let me check if I could find the images.

I am currently running on a 12v setup/battery with 12v RR and bulbs - I missed to mention this earlier.

That'll be great and it'll really help.

Is that a straight fit or does it need any modification(s)

Then why do you need another 12V system to be plonked? Is the current one a custom made 12V coil on RX100 coil plate?

Note: Ignore the coil, magnet and other parts. Refer the connectors alone. These are after market 90/100 kits.

It is running on 6v stock coil(s) and only the RR (and bulbs) have been changed. I am not happy with the headlight output with this setup.

I have failed to get hold of a mechanic/auto electrician (in Hyderabad) who can help me with the re-winding. With the limited knowledge/expertise these mechanics have, I am not comfortable with the idea of re-winding. With the current situation, I think my best bet would be to swap a complete electrical system from a 12v 100/RXG/135.

Is this a safe bet, or, can you suggest me a better option.

6V coil + 12V bulbs won't give the proper output.

Since you are about to swap the current coil with 12V coil, I suggest a 90/100 kit rather than stock 12V kit (if possible and required)

I did put a thought for RDD 100/90 kit, but the cost (~5k) and availability were the concern. Also, if I can get a full output from a 35w (HS1) or maybe 65w (H4), it will serve my purpose.
