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.

Trial run, before getting it powder coated.

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)
