Cat-con arrived this morning

It will be painted & used for a while (just to feel the original 5s physics or chemistry what ever it is) and then I will switch back to chrome silencer.

Oil level indicator started flashing at 509km. Oil level at tank is couple of mm above the lens level.

No further updates on this bike and it covered hardly a couple of hundred kilometers in last 1 month, as I was busy with my most awaited RX100 project The oldest of my garage is ready to roar again, except for the paper works need to be cleared. Let me start a new thread once the documents are on place.

Mr. Boss - Is that a original RD350 handle and where did you source it from?

Nope.
'RD replica with bar' is what the shop keepers say, but this isn't a perfect replica. Got it from Alfa Auto Spares, Coimbatore.

Covered 1100km today.
Cat-con will be removed by this weekend for powder coating.

Replaced the stock carb with VM24 and the performance difference is significant (I wish I should have done this much earlier)

Quick update:
- Removed the Cat-con for Painting / powder coating (yet to handover to painter, only God knows when he will give it back)
- Got a used RX100 silencer and fitted. My goodness, the beat doesn't disappoint me.

Odo reading during reserve before Tank fill : 1308
Qty filled : 5.69 Liters (400 INR, 70.33INR/Lit)
Odo reading at reserve : 1543
Mileage : 235km

Mad Driving (rip-off, 80kmph+) delivers 28.2kmpl
Odo reading during reserve before Tank fill : 1279.8

We are sailing on (almost) similar boat pramod.
I'm spending time with RX to keep myself busy and keep away from some sour memories.
Having said this the passion on RX remains same

No prize for guessing, silencer is left untouched these days. Thanks to my wonderful painter. I'm out of country for over a week and instructed my mechanic to follow-up him. Both these lazy guys took their sweet time. Hopping to get it done before I land
