Congrats praJEEP. I also have a RX135 5 speed 2001 model. You can switch back to the old exhaust which IMO has a better sound and far lighter than the present one. Apart from that please try to keep it as stock as possible.

buddy,

Congrats first.
I own a RX 135 5 Speed. Stock Condition.

You searched for a stock bike, keep it that way,. it is best!
Do not add aftermarket Exhaust, or Rim please.
The sweet sound of yam would be spoilt.!!

I would suggest go for the Zapper series, go have a look and choose.

Congrats dude! I am looking for a Rxz 5sp.

Please keep the stock size rims and go for 100/90 tire at back. It is the best combination for Rx135. Alos look at Ceat Secura 3.25" tire if you are interested in little bit of off-road grip.

Nice looking bike there. I feel 25K for the newwer models is a steal

Stick with 18inch tyres. Max size you should go for is 90/90. 100/90 or 3.5 is poser material and hurts performance badly

You can get a decent silencer chrome one for abt 700 if you search in the right places

You can easily get buy & fit the older type meter console without any problem. Yamaha authorised dealer Panache on OMR would have them without a doubt. Ask for Satish that guy is prety helpful.

100/90 tyre would be just right! Go ahead.
The silencer here costs 1600/- we have to order it and wait for some days.silencer and tyres coming shortly, i am two minds now 90/90 or 100/90 for back. any idea what upsize should be done for the front.

sunny, 100/90 may hit straight line performance a little, but it helps a lot in corners (grip), stock tiers are really scary on turns

Stock tires are not all that bad. On a ride to Amby Valley I leaned the bike over more than I thought I could ever lean the RX. Actually, I was surprised that I didn't crash!
