Battery may run out sooner with the backlight on. But the question is do you really need a backlight?

Sankar/Prajeep

Where can I buy the BC 1106 in Bangalore? On the sigma website, I could just find the Indian distributor based out of Delhi.

hi, can you please tell me how much did the Petal disc brake set up cost you. i have a RXZ 5 speed, but the previous owner has removed the disc saying that the nipple is broken, the rotor and the parts do really look to be in a bad condition, so i was jus wondering whether i should change the full set up, or repair the older one. kindly advise

you are right, the sport pattern on rear tyres is not such a great idea on tarmac, when cornering . the knobs do tend to flex, thus giving some anxious moments.

pradeep,

first off, my congratulations on such a great job with your rx. i am inspired. but there is so much work going on your bike, i wouldn't even know where to start from.

anyways, my question is, why would you need a sigma on your bike ? i see quite a few people have it. what are the exact features that you find useful ?? i don't think it has an rpm indicator does it ??

Sigma is required for those who need accuracy in speedo readings for others speedo would do, no it doesn't have an rpm indicator.

Default 3.25/16 tyre on RX 135

I too right that. Been using 3.25/16 Yezdi tyres for past 5 years on my RX 135 - Excellent grip and perfomance. Mileage slightly compromised - should not matter I say - Since lookwise it gives more space to wheel wells and gives that macho look.

Thanks

Default Bajaj shocks for RX 135

Hey Prajeep,

For suspension to be on the softer side use Bajaj Discover SNS rear shocks. Will do wonders to your shocks and really good cushion effect since it has double coil springs. I just changed a week back for my RX 135 which has been using the stock shocks from 2003 till 2009.

Let me know - u will get the money's worth I bet.
