One more lesson learned

The so called NOS (New Old Stock) stuff are better to be avoided for certain parts. This time I got couple of 2011 & 2013 packed Fuel Filters to replace the leaking filter (from Hero Honda) in this bike. Guess what, both the new filters started leaking, culprit being the O-ring at drain screw in one of the filter and the chamber sealing itself on the other.

For time being running without filter (for past 20km)

Some quick updates:

- Covered 1.25k km after restoration
- Still running with additional 2% premix along with autolube
- Handle grips changed
- Bike shipped to hometown last night and it reached safe

New carb fixed and bike runs far better now.

Opened the chain guard to replace the rear sprockets, and found 'this' No clue what they are, some look like wooden sticks, and rest is some plastic or fiber.

39T RX100 sprocket is out

Is there any improvement in FE after new carburetor fitment? Should give at-least 10 more than 41.6 kmpl

10kmpl is a huuuuge improvement to expect from RX.
Though I was earlier using the carb from RX135, jets were of RX100 spec. I'm yet to check the FE after swapping the carburetor and I don't expect anything over a couple of kmpl improvement.
