Tempting hmmm sorry for that, wondering when can i see your rxz in flesh ! your chamber is lovely.

Yesterday was able to rev the bike till 8.7k rpm approx in 3rd gear, got hold of the uni's yesterday had to retune the carb half turn richer. i agree that uni's makes lot of difference. got a pair of new shocks too (stock).

I am sick nowadays people ask "its 5 speed aah sir" i simply nod my head telling ya ya it is and move on.

Excellent work on the RX Pradeep. Congratz. I especially like the round speedo meter, I think it looks way better than the normal ones.

I also own a RX135, but I'm totally new to bikes, was wondering if you could help me out a bit. Have alot of doubts and questions.

Thanks that round speedo is replaced with rxz meters which comes with speedo and tachometer, feel free to ask anything.

@Prajeep -- excellent choice with going ahead with RTR front disc setup.

i too have the same plans, have all the stuff with me including the tyres, but not getting time to do the upgrade.

The ride quality and control will improve drastically is what i feel and have seen.

R15 tyres not sure is avaiable through open markets.

Why Avenger rims, you can go for F2 rims instead.

I got the R15 tyre through the yamaha dealer for MRP 916/-

F2 rims are 18 i need a 17 inch set up in front so i chose the avenger rim the build quality of the rim is quite nice but it costs 816/-

The set up is almost in the completion stage the R15 tyre is looking sweet on the bike and the ambassador head lamp assembly is adding for its charm, its been delayed for lack of spares need these .

A washer which comes between the dust cap and the fork oil seal in RTR.

A bush (spacer) which provides the gap between the fork leg and disc plate.

TVS parts availability suck big time i have would have never opted for this set up if i would have known the downside of it, any how contacted krishnamurthy yesterday and placed the order he has promised me he will get these spares by monday. if any body willing to do this set up kindly procure spares before dismantling the bike, TVS spares network sucks big time

I have an atul_astro filter with me too still havent installed it on my bike coz i was in bangy for somedays.. will have to work on that now..

First of all too many question marks ? ?

The set up is completely different now the atul astro filter is replaced with the UNI's, now i have used a 1 inch pvc pipe mounted to the rubber. will post a snap soon to clear your doubts.the filter was not touching the rear mudgaurd.

I am not using any battery nowadays dont know why i have started to hate them the bike has a good rr current the indicators run on the same. i don't have any plans of installing a battery.
