The bike might be having an airleak which is causing high rev or it would be the slide that is getting struck...the RX cable is of two parts where there is a joint under the tank...this point it would have got struck...you need a good mech locally to check and do it ...i dont think becoz of the crankshaft the bike idles high take it to a competent mech....even a local mech who knows his business can get it set up properly

Thats pretty much the RXZ of my dreams. Put up some more pics of that beast mate. Amazing set up there. Can u suggest a chamber for my '98 RXZ 4-speed which is 'bone-stock'. Looking to pep up the bike a bit.

Thanks for liking it mate, age is catching up and not getting enough time for my bikes hence decided to part with most of them, yesterday after last ride on this beauty I gave this bike for sale, retained the complete setup after putting all stock parts, will hand over the ported setup to someone within group.
Feeling sad but its time to move on.
Many chamber makers are around get one made for stock setup, even i have Blue RXZ 4 speed from first quarter of 2000, last batch of 4 speed RXZ, not sure whether I am going to retain that or not.

Its so great to see the Yamaha RX thread buzzing even now. Really happy to see all the bikes around. Good to see the great work on Ajaybiz's bike.
Well, for me, after all these years of driving around in my car, I want to get some wind back in my hair and am looking at restoring my Yamaha RXZ. Sad part is, I dont know any good mechanics around Hitec City in Hyderabad to service my bike up and get it back into running. Any suggestions will be real helpful. Cheers!

Hey Guys,
Well Its been a long time since I got back on this thread,, that doesn;t in any way reduce my love for my RX-135 (5-Speed). Great to see that the grand old RX still commands so much respect in todays age of microprocessor controlled, oil-cooled, disk-braked and ABS tech bikes. Well, just the other day, I was offered 35k for my baby that I've been riding for 12+ years now. My wife was significantly interested in getting rid of my first love, but my one look was enough to convey it to her and the interested buyer that the bike is going with me to my grave. I actually don't care what anyone is offerring,, I love this bike and thats about it!!
Cheers n Ride Safe!
Bala

The next day when he started it, the bike went into full rev. The accelerator was at the minimum position and the fuel needle was kept at normal idling setup.
Happened to me with my Rx100 and that was due to it just lying there and not being used.

But in my case the engine died once I killed the ignition.

I presume it was due to carb slide getting stuck or the accelerator cable stuck. (some kids must have played with the accelerator)

I promptly killed ignition and then opened the accelerator multiple times till it felt smooth. The the bike worked fine. (ofcourse needed a service)

To answer your second question as to why the engine didn't die on killing your ignition, please check if in your bike the ignition has been shorted.

What I mean by that is whether she starts without a key. Probably that could be the reason.

In any case from the looks of it the carb needs servicing and the accelerator cable needs a change.

EDIT: Ofcourse, you say a mechanic checked the bike and didnt find anything, in that case my above explanation doesn't hold.

Thanks,
Slick

Adding my 2005 RX135 to this thread. Took delivery in August 2005 and have done only 14,100 km till now (bike was in hibernation for 5 years). She was sitting and rusting away, so did a complete cosmetic restoration. Mechanically, changed only the main bearing. I call her '2T'.

December 1986 ! Yes this was one of the first issues of the Indian Auto Journal. The new era dawned and it was time to have auto magazines in the marketplace, as many new launches were coming along with a bang!

The automobile industry was coming of age, with the partial opening up of the market to foreign collaborations.But then, it was mandatory to have an Indian name in the marketed brand as the foreign player would invest something below 49 % in the company and sign up the collaboration pact.This ensured control of a company in the Indian hands.

The RX 100 came along with its catchy lines "You have seen the crowd- Now see the Leader."
Here is a road test, the first ever in India for this iconic bike!

Thank you Anjan. That was a phenomenal read. I remember being an avid fan of the CD100 because of this kid like fascination (inexplicably) of the fuel economy figures. This went for a toss in college and I have been a Yamaha guy from college onwards. I have owned an RXZ and have a 5-speed 135 in Pune. Hopefully she should be up and running in 4 months time.

@ balenopower - Thats a fantastic restoration. Care to share more details what is the engine config, any performance mods done/planned. I believe its a 4 speed one.

I was desperately looking for RXZ 5 speed here, but they are extinct in this part of the world.

This is mind-blowing stuff !!

Wish all the pages are made available. This mag in 1986 was just Rs 8/-, today most mags are upwards of Rs. 100/-. If you have noticed, the photography credit is to none other than Hormazd Sorabjee.

I use to ride a Yamaha RXZ during my engineering days in late nineties. What fun it was!!

I sincerely request all of you to upload similar pages from your old collection if you have. It will be a delight. Thanks.
