I installed a new NGK spark plug. It cost 67 bucks. It seems to be manufactured here in collaboration.

67 bucks only- Mico W5BC costs that much i think and is crap imho for the RX135.
I hope you have a genuine plug- the market was flooded with NGK fakes way back in 2001 itself.

W5BC works OK with RX100 though.
Let me check if my friends have an idea on pricing and availability.
I used to buy BPR8HS (gave up 7HS for certain reasons) from the TVS workshops to ensure genuine NGK stuff- the ones repacked in TVS packing.
Costed me Rs.130-140/- per plug till 2002- when the Mico ones used to be Rs.50/- only iirc.

Pradeep, after you got the coil rewound on the rx, how bright is the headlight beam now, can you give a slight comparison.

Also like in a stock yamaha , if the bike is idling or in high gear and you are cruising, does the beam fluctuate ?

There is 50% more light now than the stock which is more than enough in nights and yes it fluctuates but not much..

Just need a feedback from you guyz, has anbody used the RD chenoys CDI kit on your bike. i need a feed back from you all. waht is the overall difference between the stock one and the chenoys cdi kit ?
Good work on the Motul. It is the very best out there.

For a feedback, you can see his customer feedback section.
Many people swear by it. Some find it doesn't work for them. It's better if you become a part of the forum there and research thru all old posts. Get a clear understanding and then decide for yourself.

You wont need to clean it till around 6months atleast.
After that wash with petrol. Oil generously with 2T. Squeeze and drain out excessive oil and you are done. This is ofcourse if you don't have UNI filter oil. And oh yes, you can even try the K&N filter oil.
basic funda is, don't go ONLY on outside looks that it is dirty or not. After Dirty, Inspect insides periodically to see if inlet tract is clean. You only need to clean it if you feel bike is slightly loosing power i.e. filter is getting clogged and not flowing as much as before.

The only thing works in a place like India, is FOAM!

The old Eindiancompanies website is kinda dead.
The admin of the forums at RDD, "Chinoy" is the one to be contacted for the filters and other bike/car tuning related works.
I get charged 1750/- or so per filter including one main jet in the upsize desired.

Why did you need to install it this way? The UNI clamps on straight to the carb mouth. The K&N has a different inner and outer dia then?

Care to elaborate how? Sure it's one heat range colder. But crap? How come? Always found it to do it's duty faultlessly. Bike runs slightly cooler on long rides too.

I got rid of the K&N and installed the stock filter. After the rains I'll try UNI.

Hmmm... now how to explain.
Are you sure it's a range colder?
It seems the otherwise from whatever my poor memory of Mico/BOSCH and NGK method of rating tells me- i am really old- seriously.
And how do you know bike runs cooler- i mean - what are you comparing to?
BTW, which bike?

Pradeep, some more small queries for you

Which headlight bulb have you installed now ? I was not able to find the normal philips 60/55 bulb in all the car accessories shop I asked, they only stock the crystal vision sort of bulbs which are available only in pairs, costing 800-1000.

However the Halonix 60/55 bulbs were available.

I have never seen a 60/55 Philips bulb. The stock bulbs in most cars is the Halonix.
