i dont mind paying little extra for a Yoko/Micheline or Pirelli. .

Thank You
recshenoy, you can try Dunlop Zebra 2.75 X 18 at the front and Michelin M45 3.00 X 18 at the rear.

Or you can try Michelin M62 2.75 X 18 at front & M45 at the rear.

Though everyone say Michelins offer great grip, I don't agree fully to it. But they are the best available in Indian market. Though I agree with ride comfort.

I prefer Dunlop over MRF/Ceat/TVS. This is just my personal opinion.

Thanks,
Jose.

Michelin M45 is a popular choice

I use Sirac on my RX with good results

MRF tyres except Zap C does'nt 've RX suitable sizes i guess.MRF may be more suitable for our roads if you see durability

M45 is no doubt offers good grip on both tarmac and wet conditions and I have it on ZMA. ALso you don't have exclusive M45 front tyres. However, I always thought RX is meant for all terrain, so went with Sirac Street which is good for On and Off road. Both F&B should costs around 3.5k depends on the city/dealers.

I have observed that there is oil leakage from my RX135. The source is where the gearbox side cover is bolted. The leakage is very slow and can be seen when the bike is parked for 2 days.

I think I need to replace the gasket to stop the oil leakage. I plan to do it on this weekend. Is there any precaution I need to take when doing it? What parts would I need? Can someone please help?

I had followed the method to learn if there are another reason to the oil leak when it happened on my RX.

Step 1: Waterwash the bottom part of the engine.
Step 2: Leave it idle in center stand for an overnight or long time.
Step 3: Identify where exactly you notice the oil leak.
Step 4: Possible post a snap shot.
Step 5: team-bhp members will be glad to give inputs.

On the other side if you had changed the gearbox oil recently, the drain bolt washer might have worn out, might as well get it replaced. But would advise to follow up with above procedure so that we could learn if there are any other areas that leaks and address the issue. Hope this helps!

Problem identified. It is leaking from the kick pedal. Looks like an O-ring replacement.

My bikes gone from an original red, then a Honda red, then blue and now gonna go back to red, something like the Polo red.
And later about a 96 RXZ, cherry red. Pics are a not so recent.

This is my RX 100 totally unmodified or even touched up since I got her as a present from my dad in March 1989. I have just changed the rear shocks once and the battery to a 12 V since the original was impossible to find here. The rest is all as I got her from the showroom.

For a 22 year old bike, you have maintained very well . From the pic, I can still see Red paint stands out. At regular intervals, give her a good coat of wax polish so that aging is slow down considerably. There is metal polish from Collinite which would be more appropriate protect chrome parts. FYI.. these days, chrome parts quality that we get from showroom are pathetic that what it used to be from yester years.
