Okay, got a new Chain/Sprocket kit fitted.

Also fitted the Proton silencer. Its not too loud, sounds as good as the stock silencer. Didn't check for performance since the rear brake is still not done, so wouldn't risk ripping it.

Will give the proton a coat of paint, and get the bottle chrome plated or buffed.

Bike is looking greattt. The Proton matches the stance of the cafe.

chirag i guess is running the hydrofoamed malaysian RXZ header with a modded belly and stinger. and its for an RX135. donno how many other people make hydrofoamed headers. i believe mr. rajkumar of chennai is the only other person who makes hydrofoamed header but i cant confirm it , maybe he also gets the hydrofoamed headers frm south east asia. try out the proton . i guess ur porting is still stock. once u port it then u can build a custom pipe.

High Sec plates should cost anywhere between 800 to 1000 depending on how lower you are in the chain. Correct price is around 800 as far as i know.

Updates:
  1. The High Security Registration Plates have arrived. Mounting them tomorrow.
  2. New flat seat with a very interesting taillight setup is planned for tomorrow too.
  3. Brake Rearset is also thought about. May go for a cable linkage. Still working things out.

Nice work there guys . I have a few suggestions . Hope u dont get offended since this is your money and your blood , sweat and tears . Here they are anyway :

1) Powder Coat your Proton black including ur bend pipe. Really stands out like a sore thumb right now. You could also look into getting ur barrels ported and building a custom chamber for it powder coated in Bangalore. Dont think it would cost more than around 3k @ most of the good workshops.

2) Use better quality rearsets which are chrome / metallic in finish. I would suggest picking up Yoshimura Brand rear sets , available in plenty in the far east. You will find them with anybody who sells any sort of imported parts / accessories and someone who gets parts from Bangkok etc. They look fantastic , are very functional and are pretty cheap too. Basically right now in the pictures you can hardly even notice that you have rearsets and they don't stand out or look good either.

3) Paint the front mudguard white (like the rest of the bike) , should've done that when you were painting the rest of the bike. Sandblast/ buff front forks and/or both brake drums/ wheel hubs . Reason being the whole front end is black and monotonous with no break in colour and hence nothing catches your eye except for the front mudguard. While at it , a second hand Pulsar front end with a disc brake would do wonders to this build as well .

4) You could also sandblast the chrome off your headlight and the ears that hold them and paint them in the same tone of white that was with the rest of the bike. Other options are a yezdi dome which i think is plastic and using after market aluminium ears. Look pretty neat as well. The basic point would be to keep the main flow of colour at all the right places.

5) How about doing away with the front indicators ? or finding another place for them like where the reflectors are under your tank are right now ? you could also keep just one horn and install it on the chassis downtubes right behind and under the headlight , so it is hidden from view. That is where the stock horns are installed i believe . Also why only a left RVM and no right or only Right RVM ?

I love your seat ( how comfortable is it ? ) . Love the simplicity of the front console (any plans of adding an RXZ tachometer ? ) . I also love the way you have kept the stock decals and merged the shapes of the tank with the side panels and the side panels with the cowl. I think the cowl and the seat are the best parts of the bike ( anyway you could camoflage those 2 screws on your cowl ? ) . The rear indicators look neat as does the cutout for the brake light ( the underside of the latter needs to be covered , guess ur number plate will do that )

Anyway thats what I think . Let me know what you think of my ideas .

Great jobs guys . Keep it up.

ps: You need to replace the red cafe-d Bullet with a Cafe-d RD350

Good Show !
