Didn't the RX 135 and 135 Tiger come with engine kill switch?

Guys, thanks for the info. I wanted to add an engine kill to my RX 135 but I'm reconsidering this as I don't want to meddle with the existing set up. When I spoke to my mechanic he said that KB Caliber's set up is a good option.

Turbolover, neither RX135 nor the Tiger came with engine kill switch. I was not sure about RX100. The reply I got for my earlier posts cleared my doubt.

Thanks,
Jose.

Hey is it not possible to just put a switch to the CDI unit. It will stop the engine. NOt much meddling is required for that. Dont know if it has any negative aspect.

Wonderful....Got to see wonderful RXZ after so many years...I have seen all badly abused RXZ.Kudos for your efforts.However,why not keeping it stock? Why shogun handles and all ?? NOM please

But now people are slowly realising the value of RXZ because of scarcity of two strokes.

Looking beautiful Asif; Yes, why not keep it in stock? Anyway, its far far better than most abused RXZ. Keep it shining & glowing everyday, 'cause the parts are very very rare, especially for RXZ.

Nice bike Asif! Very decently modified. If I had this rxz I would simply sell off my gladiator and ride rxz more often than car.

my RX-135, with expansion chamber designed by BG Srinivas & barrel ported by ATUL HALDANKAR ..... plus variable timing CDI(running max advance of 18.5 degress) from RAVI NAGESH & brilliantly tuned by Mr.ANTHONY of DAM motors...( ditched the crap digital CDI which makes the bike move like a 4-joke)...

thick spark from the CDI... see for yourself ...





it goes FAST & FASTER....

^^^ Hope you're running on 2.75 in the front tyre & plastic mudguard in the rear fenner instead of the standard chromed one.

If it goes faster & faster, why not opt for a disc brake?

i am running 2.45*18 at the front & 3.00*18 at the rear...

both mudguard are chrome... but the rear one is powder coated....

drum is enough for me.. if you set it up right then no need of disc... i have the correct fork oil level.. correct springs & the good drum & break shoe..& correct air pressure in the tyres is also a must....... i have slammed the brakes @140 with me putting my body weight slightly towards the front & it has done exceptional well... infact in some of my group rides i brake very late than those who have discs....

@Vinc - what's your requirement? There're knowledgable people out there, but no one can be trusted these days. Better learn the mechanics by yourself & its easy too.

Thanks alot Siddarthp. I've all the stock fittings as brand new right in my bedroom which include RXZ Engine Cowling, OEM handlebar, Pillion handle, Saree Gaurd, Crash Gaurd etc. I dont really use the bike anymore. Last one year, all I've ridden is around 300 kms. but she make sure to respond to my very first kick even if I am starting her after 3 months!
We have a good chemistry n I hope it goes on for another 20 years more!

Hey Aargee! thanks alot man! Bike looks very much in stock condition only, and I use a stock Shogun handlbar without any cross bar welded or any funny looking paint.
I've plans to go for 18" alloys for front and back (something similar to Pulsar's alloys, its simple n sporty enough). and put 100/90 x 18 for rear wheel.. any feedback on that?

Your bike looks beautiful man! Congrats!

It will be better if you can share the contact details of the professionals who handled your bike's mods.
