Posted on behalf of V12 :

Time for some more updates :
  • The tank work has been completed and it looks amazing.
  • The clubman handlebar is also ready.
  • Next on the list are 2 seats (a cafe-seat and a double seat) and rear-sets. The tail light design is also gonna be very unique and different for both the seats.
Here's a pic of the bike after a much needed wash. Still looks the same as before ....dirty... Just thought of posting a final pic of the stock bike. Its almost dismatled now. The seat, tank, handlebar etc have been removed now and its lying in the garage.

Watch this space for more updates.

Shakensoul : Are these original RD meters or local ones and any idea if the same is available in Mumbai?

Desideep : Are you saying the total cost of both the tyres would be max 1220? Or is it each?

All : What's the cost of the below :
Original RX100 silencer.
Original RXZ 4-Speed silencer (the chrome up-swept one)
RX135 5-sp or RX-Z 5-sp silencer (the matt black one)

The RD meters were in a simple packing, not in any blister pack or yamaha packing, not too sure if they are original and no idea about the availability in mumbai.

Cost of tyres would be 1000-1200 each depending on tyre size and brand.

I got this original RX silencer for 950

Not sure if the other variants would be available.

If possible, could you please get a pic of it?! I can try searching it here. If I don't find it, I could get them from you.

I'll try checking for the Endurance Products too. They got some nice stuff.

RD Meters are available at Suraj Auto Parts Mumbai Central or Grant Road forgot the exact area but its somehow close to Premji's shop, Yenkay make for around 1K.
Get the lifted up at the rear by small angle, pipes of old RXZ or stick to stock ones avoid the black powder coated ones as they are with CAT convertor and very restrictive.
Use RD indicators good for cafe racer looks.

Ok let me give you the real picture for the RD meters. they are actually fakes with some real shista inner machine and stuff. i would sugest you to keep it simple by using a shogon meter or a umm. not sure what else could be used... but dont go for the RD meters they look real takkie. i am sure that they dont meet the kind of quality that you give to your bikes.

about the tyres thats for one. the total cost would not go any thing above 2200. that means some good tyres but are you going for spokes or alloys? if alloys then a set of duro tubless would do the duty very nicely.

UPDATE:
  • The seat work is still pending. No work was done today.
  • Removed the antirust from the wheels, fork, silencer, and mudguards. The front wheel is good, the rear wheel is in pretty bad shape. Silencer chrome has faded off. Will rechrome it probably. Rear mudguard had no problems. Front mudguard will be changed, so can't be bothered about it.

Tyres:

Somehow I don't like the patterns in MRF. So checked for Dunlop.

2.75 inches = 70mm (Dunlop - Rs 750)
3.00 inches = 76mm (??)
3.54 inches = 90mm (Not available in Dunlop
3.93 inches = 100mm (Dunlop - Rs 1100)

I'm planning for a 100mm at the back and a 3.00 inches at the front. The front tyre will be accompanied by a fibre mudguard. Any idea if there is a 3.00 x 18 from Dunlop?! I forgot to ask about it.

We're keeping the spoke wheels as of now. Alloys will overshoot the budget. Just ordered for the Dunlop 2.75 and 100/90 which will be arriving next week.

Checked out a fibre seat pan today but will be difficult to work upon compared to a metal pan. Will have to wait for a day or 2 more for my welder to come.

I'm still looking out for RXZ silencers (chrome upswept one) but am not able to find one. Does anyone know where it is available and for how much.

Rear-sets have been finalised, but the brake pedal is a issue now. Will have to sort that one out.

Thanks SS. I think i'll stick to the original RX100 meters then. Just had a ride on the bike and its very uncomfortable. The seating position is as uncomfortable as a drag-bike.

Am currently using the rear footrest and changing gears using my toe and the heel-shift. So right now the shift pattern is a 1-up 3-down till I actually install a proper rear-sets.

Decided on 3.00-18 at the rear, since it wouldn't hamper the ride, performance and mileage. Almost picked the 100/90-18, but decided against it.

Hey Revolution, thats a nice bike you have. I remember seeing pics of your bike soemwhere, but cant recollect where... maybe xbhp.

Anyways some more updates :
Since both the seats will be having different brake-light setups, they will be mounted on the seat itself. The BSA lamp setup is for the double seat whereas a round brake-light setup would be used for the cafe-seat.
The bike would be given for a complete service this week to the authorised Yamaha service center.
