Please tell me what exactly are you looking for ? I do know a mechanic who would serve you the best value for money. Infact I believe him to be the best. And he can make your RX rock.

Hi
I have a RX135 which is completely stock. It is good upto 55 kmph & strains a lot after 60 kmph and its difficult to push it further. I have driven some other Rx 135s earlier which seemed to go comfortably upto 80-90 kmph. Can this mechanic solve my problem. Pls do share his contact.

@Shalini_g: Most of the work on my bike was done in Belgaum. The mech;s name is Rahul.

In Bangalore my bike is taken care of by Equinox in Kamanahalli, near the Empire hotel circle. His work is reliable.

@johnda: The black box is a tool kit, it was not present when I bought the bike, had it fitted additionally.
Currectly holds the tools, bike papers and I manage to also push a cloth in it, just to wipe my seat on those rainy days.

The biggest problem is to contact him. Though he has a mobile, he hardly picks it for what so ever reason. So even I, normally just go and give the bike to him in the morning. His garage is in JP Nagar. Do pm me your email id or contact number, and I will take it forward from there.

BTW, he will definitely solve this out for you with no issues what so ever.

I thought as much, neat. Oh! yes I used to cramp all this next to the Batt and infact one time had all my (Photostatted) papers eaten up by a damaged, leaking Battery. All the best on your Bike. It's Looks Great. cheers:

what tyres are those man?both the front and the rear ones seem to have quite a good grip! what size are they. please remove that leather/plastic scoop off your front mudguard. if u really want one get the smaller one which came with the rx mudguards... will luk better i ges...just an opinion though

well i think the price is quite reasonable.just check the engine.may be get a long enough test ride and show it to a trustworthy mechanic if you can. make sure the bike is working well. after all you dont want trouble right? its less risky to get a second hand 2 stroke than a 4 stroke so hopefully your bike is good enough
