Hi Guys. I was surfing net today when suddenly 1 thing come to my mind. I have been observing since i am searching the net that there are so many Bikes clubs are there, but particularly a club dedicated to rxz is not there, especially in India. So starting this thread.
So those bikers with there RXZ come n post.
This thread will be consisting of the model,Color,owner,Mod/Stock Version(4/5speed),top speed, 0-60 figure,milieage,their experience on street racing and problem they have faced will be discussed. I think this will help us lots of us. And this thread will be also help full to RX 135 owners too,as RX 135 has the same engine as RXZ have.

So starting from me

Model:Yamaha RXZ 1998
Owner:2nd
Color-Black
Mod/Stock:Stock
Version:4Speed
Top Speed:120kmph

nope. now power band is at the begining. its having amazing initial pickup and great torqe. lost a bit at the top end. now touches only 100(due to the sprocket having more teeth and Enticer's back wheel set). but i love the initial pickup and that mileage.

Model:Yamaha RXZ 1998
Owner:1st
Color-Black
Mod/Stock:Stock
Version:4Speed
Top Speed:100kmph (Have not exceeded 70 off late)
Mileage:Never checked till date.
Kms Covered so far : Nearing 40 K

Its is a Yamaha, and extremely dependable. There have been times when the vehicle was left idle for years, and still starts in the first couple of kicks after changing the petrol and Battery. Very enjoyable to ride, and still a beauty when washed and polished!!

This is also my first bike.

Recently had the rings changed, and my only problem is getting it serviced in a reliable service centre of Yamaha, and the spares are becoming sparse by the day.

Hey!

Model : RXZ (1998)
Owner : I have no idea. There have been a few I would imagine
Colour : Hmmmmmmmmm! Used to be white and red but kinda inbetween paint jobs. Will post once it is done.
Mods : Converted the bike from a 4 speed to a 5 speed, Runs a TVS - Girling disc up front, Box swing arm, porting and a chamber (Not the ones that you get off the shelf) both done at the hands of Mr. B.G. Srinivas. Pulls like a volvo bus after 5k RPM.
Top Speed : Never checked.
Mileage : Who cares! The bike makes me smile. My bro told me its around 19 per litre.
KMS covered : 786 :-) Changed everything in the engine. New gear cogs (Drive and Driven) New crank ....... Etc. Etc. Only the case and the chassis is old.

Thats a few that have been done. Got more on the way. The bike is a pleasure to ride and it still scares me every single time I whack the throttle open.

Is Srinivas also fondly called Budd? He used to work for TVS and used to frequent Torque Center in Vijayanagar. If Yes, you have a 'Z' barrel and chamber to be proud of.

We have an ongoing discussion like this unless of course you want a separate RXZ thread.

If its ok then maybe we can have the mods merge threads and re-title the thread to "The Yamaha RX- Thread".

Default Love my Yamah RXZ

Hi All,
I too love my RXZ. It has been a great companion since the last 8 yrs inspite of all the torture it has gone through.
Model:Yamaha RXZ 1999
Owner:1st
Color-Black
Mod/Stock:Stock
Version:4Speed
Top Speed:120kmph
Milieage:37 in Hway/City combi.
Though it has lost its sheen a bit, its still very zippy in the city traffic. But nowadays on the highways I try to keep the speed 70 or at the most 80.
