@Miki - Your motocross modification with the extended swing arm is provoking me to ask you several questions. Looks like a good work there. Looks to me like the frame at the rear is slightly bent on 7012009435.jpg; is that true?[/quote]
aargee thats not an extended swing arm.Its the rx stock swing arm strengthened & itz Hawkson custom motocross shocks made here in cochin .The rear chassis is also strengthened by tacking axiles inside it ,dont think it had a bend. The angle of the shocks has been changed for better working.both the rear shocks position hav different angles in both the pics

The headlight is definitely Minda. I'll take a pic and post it just for you when I go to the gym later.

The swingarm is local. Already arranged for an original one but will install it next month. I'll give an update about it once I do it.

@Straight6 - Ok, we'll see the pic; again, if it is with clear lamps then Minda doesn't make one or not available in Chennai. But if Minda makes one with clear lamps & available in Mumbai, boy, I'm going to send you some money to get shipped few of them here.

Oh!!! so that explains as why it never fitted the chain guard. Let me know if you need any help to procure a OE swing arm as I know how difficult it is to obtain genuine parts. With great difficulty & a wait of over 3 months I was able to source one genuine.

i think it is a Roadking dome? it is metal right ? the RX100 domes are the best as they last a life time.even the RX135 domes break very easily. getting the OE spares are a matter of concern, even yamaha promissed to bring in fresh supply of spares in July, but looks like it is not coming !!!

Thanks @Straight6, but I still find hard to believe that Minda is available in clear lamps. Probably I should think of getting one of those; still don't know why those models are not sold here. Thanks anyway for enlightening me.

straight6, I have two RX at home. Both are having Michelin's in the rear. But I'm not much impressed with these tires. I find the grip same as other tires. Even the bike's pick-up has gone down when I changed to these tires. Only plus point is that the ride has become smooth.

George, I'm just talking about the fabric on the headlight. Not about the doom.

Are these not the same as the headlights of TVS mopeds? I think it's a direct fit for the RX.

Thanks,
Jose.

@higautham - YMIS has almost dumpted RXZ parts; there're almost no parts for RXZ that you can find except for most common things such as fuel tap, meter assy (not the pilot lamps). Sorry to say, but, forget the fairings. Probably you can find people making a non-genuine fairings at local automobile market.
