Replaced Block piston @ 55k but that was due to oil was not reaching to engine as the black pipe which supplies oil to carb from pump was removed by some one, may be by mistake while servicing.There was absolutly no problem till 55k,And replaced with original set and was running absolutely fine before it. I still remember i used to race my bike with my friends karizma and used to stay ahead till 100km/hr.
Mostly done all servicing at Mobike Pune,Shirish Joshi.
Still miss the bike a lot,no other bike has that kind of rush,the sound.

Mine - The old model (19997)Yamaha RXZ. Got it in 2002 when it was some 23k on the odo. Now, the mileage on some 42k, she is really fine with me. Changed her shoes to some broader ones (Enticer's) in 2004.

Now that the back suspensions are weak, I am planning for new ones. Any suggestions and how about the price ?

I ride my trustworthy Suzuki fiero (2002). A no nonsense, rugged and very low maintenance workhorse.

No wonder she has twin discs for both front and rear - and they look like floating discs - am I right? I bet you enjoy the thrill of cracking the throttle everytime you see an open road!!

Absolutely. Yes, the discs are floating. The brakes on this bike are superb, though I rarely use the rear around town since I just use the engine as my rear brake

The bike has amazing power. Once you get at 9000 RPM, it really goes nuts, all the way to the 16,500 RPM redline. You have to ride one someday.
