rxz 4 speed comes with 135 cc engine with 11.9 bhp power rating and 5 speed with 14 bhp. in terms of performance rx135/rxz are any day better than rx100 (considering all bikes are stock)

Rear tail light holder from an M80, tail light bulb and cover from Thunderbird, indicator lights from platina. The enticer speedo simply because it was big and chrome and had the yamaha logo on it, everybody centers it, I liked it askew. fabricate the L patti in such a way that I can invert it and the speedo will go to the right. I love "patti" work! Nothing you can't do with a welding torch and some metal patti's!

Cheers,
Credit must go to my friends and mechanics Mahesh and Dinesh of VAutoline, their ideas, implementation and support are highly valued. With my ideas and money, their experience and effort, we could combine to make Stella a reality. I remain hugely indebted to these guys. We usually spend many Saturdays in their garage just talking about bikes, and sipping chai. Mumbai two strokers will know of them and their excellence in fabrication and paint. They are located at Pestom Sagar in Chembur, opposite the McDonalds. Please PM me if you need their contact.

Cheers,

From your reply,I think I know how it feels to meddle. Seat is well laid out too. Somehow I feel the original round indicators for your Stella would have suited more than the present ones, especially its got that chrome too !

Yeah, I wanted those round indicators with the RD stalks too, but at the time I was rebuilding Stella, I couldn't wait to get the stalks and rushed the last bit. In fact, I didn't change the wiring harness either, which cost me as it shorted the ignition coil a month or so back. I replaced the entire wiring harness and Stella's fine now. The reason I didn't take the round indicators was because they were yellow, and I wanted the bulb covers to be white to gel with the chrome and black look. Just one of my quirks, I guess.

Cheers,

That crash guard gives me the shudders. Too fat, too useless and doesn't line up with the bike's profile at all. The quality of the chrome on those guards is also terrible. Like the paint scheme though.

That type of crash bar is quiet famous but then I always prefer the normal straight rod which is usually black in colour.
@sriku are you planning crash bar for your ride ?
