I'm not sure if I posted on this thread so here goes:

I started in a Kawasaki KX-80, then later on I got a Suzuki GSX-R750. Now I own a 2008 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R Special Edition and a Yamaha TTR50E.

Hi.

Here are my two RXZ's.... both not quite in stock condition, the black one has a modified engine, too, bored up to 150cc with RXK piston and ported, it makes about twice the stock power and goes like stink even though it doesn't look fast at all due to the add-ons.... fastest i had was 193 km/h as per the digital speedo.

Both of them outfitted with rear disc brake, Kawasaki GTO head lights and LED tail lights and indicators (home made tail light/tail indicator LED setups).

The black one has a "Tsukigi" chamber pipe with a silencer from a Honda LS 125, this has good torque in the lower rpm's yet from 6,500 rpm up it REALLY kicks ***. It tops out at 14,000 rpm, sixth and last gear still 13,500 with 16/40 sprockets on stock 18" wheels. The pipe on the red one is from the much older RXZ model, this pipe is VERY silent and generates extremely good torque, yet little top-end. It tops out at 10,500 rpm, 9,000 in sixth gear with 16/34 sprockets on skinny 17" wheels.

The red bike has a modified stock air box with additional cone-type inlet filter (can be seen sticking out of the side panel), this together with a 225 main jet increases the torque even further.

The red one is further outfitted with a meter set from the 2008 RXZ model (imported from Singapore) and a front fender from a Honda Sonic 125 which fits the RXZ fork without any modification and matches perfectly with the 17" wheels. The speedmeter drive has been replaced by one from a Yamaha Mate which has 17" wheels stock to make sure the speedo shows correct values.

Both bikes are designed (paint scheme/stickers) in the 2007/2008 RXZ look even though they are 1994 respectively 1995 bikes.

Oh and they got names, too! The black one is "Bulldozer" for he keeps on plowing - 50,000 kilometers in less than three years under me, the meter now standing at 90,450 kilometers total. That bike was a poor heap of scrap when i got it. The red one is named "Destiny" for her destiny is to race - she will let the air burn on the track once i am done with her, aiming @ 180cc ultra-short-stroke (biggest bore the original cylinder liner can take, needs a custom made piston), 16-28 transmission and 240+ km/h.

I love my RXZ's and am aiming to have a third one one day - which will become a scrambler.

Kind regards.....

Thanh

Recently i happened to ride a 1997 Bullet 350cc,it was an amazing experience for me .The Thump was mind blowing..It was like Shivamani(Famous South Indian Drummer) on Drums....
The ride has sparked an fire in me to own one Bullet in the Future.

Default My rides till date

I first started off with the Hero Target (bicycle). Then graduated to the Kinetic Luna Super Star (hand down by sisters).
I then had a Yamaha RX100, the mean machine, It was a great bike. Ultimately got sold after a crash (He..He!...my early days, showoff and all).
Then I used (and still own) the Kinetic ZIng 80, I love this bike. It is the perfect commuter in Pune.
I recently purchased a Hero Honda Hunk.
And yes, I do own a Indica. (first car was a Tata Sierra).

Started on Bajaj Super.

Though my dad bought this in hurry, he never drove it till now. i use this when i visit my home town- just 15 K done for past 9 years.

Third - Pulsar DTSI 150 - being used since 2004 - serving my requirement without any issues.
