You mean to say that as soon as you release the clutch the engine conks off, if yes there seems to be some clutch problem.

try this and let me know
George i tried this with bike on centre stand, power is being transmitted to the rear wheels when i release the clutch, so i think it is not a clutch problem.

on main stand , engine on, in gear if you raise the throttle with clutch released the rear wheel should do the rounds really fast shaking bike. at this if you pull the clutch and raise throttle what happens to the turning wheel? is it still turns ?

george the wheel will continue to rotate due to momentum/inertia right?

yes..for some time then ?

in gear when you raise the rev.s if the wheel is not moving really rushing then the clutch is giving up. try changing the g-oil and see. this had happened on my bike after i replaced the clutch on my RX100 with that of a 135- 5 speed. changing the g-oil solved the issue

Default Update

Hi Guys, i took my RX to my regular mechanic today morning. After a small check, he concluded that the carburetor was at fault. Took the carburetor out and dismantled it, as expected some dirt was found near the float area. Then the carburetor was completely cleaned, jets were thoroughly cleaned with compressed air. Since dirt might have caused this issue i asked him to clean the air cleaner (as recommended by aargee and george) and let it dry.

Also, today morning i noticed that my transmission oil was low and looked a bit thin. As this oil had run for around 4000 km, i requested him to drain it and replenish with recommended Shell oil. Finally, the dismantled components were put back and the engine was cranked. She fired in one kick, tuning was done as per specification. Bike has really roared back to life after this service, acceleration has improved and has become a lot smoother.

A small query, what service intervals is it recommended for Transmission oil, Air cleaner, Spark Plugs etc.?

Spike

Transmission Oil - Replace at 1000, Check every 3000 Km & replace every 6000 Km
Air Filter - Per owner's manual it only says clean & replace, if necessary.
Spark plugs - Per owner's manual it only says check/clean or replace. But I feel, doing this like every 3K kms will suffice; experts can suggest better.

Wheel bearings & steering bearings - Repack & grease every 12K kms

Anything else you need? Just let me know.

Thats good news. Every person likes to hear their machines roar back to life.
I have a RXG service manual which i've been told is similar to the RX service manual.

The Manual says this:

Transmission oil: Change once after 1000 kms of Running in.
Thereafter, every 6000 kms or 6 months.

Spark Plug: Check, clean or Replace after 1000 kms of Running in.
Thereafter, check, clean or Replace after 6000 kms.

Air Filter: Clean, replace if necessary every 3000 kms.

"Aargee's reply is faster than a bullet"

Can i share the manual here if anyone wants it?

Aargee, is it the RX100 or the RX135 owners manual?
I have a 135 owners manual with me which i can scan and share if you need it.

Spike, this is the link for the RXG service manual. More or less similar to the RX135s.

Really well maintained bike Danny ! Everything still looks original except maybe the painting of the petrol tank and the chrome on the crankcase ! What happened to the chain cover though ?
