The disc set up is almost 95% complete, the 17 inchers and the R15 rubber is amazing set up felt the difference right from the word go. will be fitting the OE mudguard on the bike in couple of days. Hub used F2 hub no speedo worm used ( coz i am getting a sigma )

Can you recap the exact parts needed and prices for the front disc setup? From what I can gather, 816 for the Avenger rim, 900 for the tire. How much for the RTR disc and calipers? Cool project BTW

I forgot to add one thing the allen bolts for the disc plate is from cbz extreme the spacers for the wheel is from spendor + and karizma, the washer which comes in fork leg places between the dust cap and the oil seal is from the old cbz. all these spares where bought in one shot during a random visit to the HH delaer, lack of spares made me to do this chow chow bath.

"All small parts tvs doesn't stock they stock only fast moving parts" this was said by many tvs dealers.

I am not able to get whether the discs went on your Rx 135 or some other bike, please clarify.

First of all if it was of other bike the posts and pics wouldn't have been here ! Aint'it

The fork legs are of RTR the fork tube dia is same as of the RX , the only thing you need to change in the suspension is the piston the RX one's are bigger the rtr's one are smaller, to make you more clear the RTR allen bolts are 6mm the rx ones are also 6mm but the head of the bolt is thad bigger than the RTR one's, btw you can retain the same old fork springs of the RX.
