Always ensure you use Yamalube - Its the best 2T oil - even though lil pricey - this should make the engine smooth in running -

Just need to feel - while you accelerate and go till 80-90 kmph - then leave the accelerator for some time - you can feel that free flowing feel of engine - it just goes on and on - that smoothness -

Always try use genuine Yamaha parts and accessories - Its your baby man....Yam guys...I am proud...

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

I have tried these methods and come to a conclusion that stock shocks are better.

What mileage are you getting from the bike after all the mods? I've got a max of 29/liter while running in. With hard riding it went to 24 . Both times with regular fuel.

Now I'm trying it with Extra Premium.

agree with that 100%. i did it just about 10 days ago. am kicking myself why i did not do it earlier. its beautiful now. so much easier on the back. also wifey could make out the difference distinctly and she liked it too. i've set it on the softest setting.

i was worried if this would alter handling characteristics drastically. but luckly, no such thing.

and its a straightforward direct fit as well. :-)

@praJEEP

I'd like to know this too.
Have a RXZ 1997 planning to upgrade the brakes.

Did't see a reply in the thread.
Could you please give details. (Price, where to buy and mods required for fixing it on RX)

For some reason the bike is not going over 100 km/h (with me crouching). I installed a new chain and sprocket (34T) last week but it didn't help. It had a 37T earlier.

I'm using a better oil than Yamalube. The Petronas fully synthetic 2T oil. I'm using the Petronas 20W-50 in the transmission and that is superb as well.

I've used Yamalube too. Its a good oil if you bike is stock.

The jetting seems to be right because the bike is running super smooth right now. Maybe a little on the richer side though. I'll open the air screw a bit and check but I don't think it will increase the speed.

I up jetted the bike even more just before the chain/sprocket change.

I'll post pics of the plug this coming weekend.

I'll find out the jet size and let you know. The position of the needle is +1 richer from the normal position.

I had to up jet even more because the bike would make a knocking sound at high revs. This has taken care of it.

Stock carb.

P.S- There is a 5-speed block/gearbox kit available for 12K. What do you think?

The mileage has gone up to 31 with some top speed testing and hard riding included . I'm sure I can get some more with no hard riding.

Take your bike to a good mechanic and not one of the local ones.

This is a pretty trifle job... it only means that your mechanic has not done his job properly... and/or the seal used is not good. Chuck that mechanic and go somewhere else... to an authorised center if you don't know anyone else, and get the job done in front of you.

straight6 stop giving people advise and sort out ur bike first ! LOL . why are u running sythetic oil when ur bike doesnt even cross 100 kmph ?! A stock 4 speed RX135 does 100 when u crouch given the space and 5 speeds do about 110 . my bike when it was stock used to give me 45 -49km/l , ur 31 kmpl for a 100kmph bike is rediculous ! My RX now hits about 125kmph with a pillion both of us sitting upright with bags and stuff . yes my bike is ported , piped , jetted etc etc etc and is not stock anymore , she hits about 135 kmph on the gun and gives me about 30 km to the litre as an everyday commuter ! Sort ur bike out man . Who has done the porting , jetting etc ? Have u finished the running in as of yet ? Get in touch with atul or rohit koli aka motorhead in bombay , they should be able to help u out .
