Hi, thanks for taking the time out, I went for the I-2, it was almost new and for the the price vfm, I was thinking long term hence abstained from getting a bored G block.

I have covered 600KM since Diwali and it is way better than the previous local block.

My mech is primarily a Bullet mechanic, but his Yamaha knowledge is good and he was able to pinpoint and sort out the block issues.

I am putting oil in the fuel tank long with the Oil pump running too, the bike is smoking a bit but I have peace of mind.

Thanks.

Cost wise, I- 2 is turning out to be 1k more expensive than the G1, that is I-2 is 4.5k and G1 is 3.5k.
Just an information for fellow RX fans and owners.
OE Cylinder kits won't be supplied any further. Have a look at the official announcement from Yamaha India.


So when you find any old stock, be it G or I or ABCD what ever the series it may be, stock it.

Mr Boss ji,

One word awesome,

For some reason, the stance of the bike has changed. The possible reason could be height of rear shock absorbers and position of the handlebar OR could be the angle of the camera. Please clear my confusion.

One more suggestion, please decrease the distance between the headlight and speedmeter console.

It's the rear shocks height (taller by an inch) and the camera angle making the stance a bit awkward. Let me post a clear snap by this evening.

You mean the height? Since I'm using center lock from RXZ, speedo bracket needs some modification to lower the position.
