Stupendous looking RD.Wow.I would actually drool over this more than any superbike in the world.love the rear wheel.Wow.

I had a craving for RD's sometime back.But then backed out because its useless without getting it done up by Ron.
Maybe i'll have other things done by Ron now that he's into cars as well.
Oh yes dude. RDD has the entire thread right from when I bought it stock to stage wise changes. You are right, it aint worth doing it up like this & get taken by a RX or Pulsar 220 or Karizma. So Ron's products have ensured that, that never happens Now getting a killer engine sorted for it.

@gajsh, thanks man. My Blue beast is killer quick. Again alot of help from RDD & friends.

Thanks guys. Feels good to be appreciated. You can never find plug & play parts for an RD which has been modded to this level. So it was tough but I enjoyed it more than buying plug & play parts for my 14R.

Why don't you get an RZ engine put in.Man it'll put a shame to those big litre bikes on the 1/8 mile drag.i can bet on that.Ron built an RZ for himself which was doing wheel spins in even 2nd and 3rd gears.got one man.it'll be a killer.

Thinking of a RD400 modified to drag specs. That'll be quite a trip. Lets see what Ron has up his sleeves.

dont mind dude. One suggestion. She looks awesome like this. The one i modded wasnt in this good a condition aside from the original jap engine. So dont mod yours. Unless you have the time & money to mod it like mine & make it faster than any other RD, mine gives a slight chance for a drag RD to pass, so unless you make her that fast, it aint worth it

@Insaneroller - Both the Bikes look stunning man. But I like the Blue one more as I like the Original setup.

@nandishpal - Woow. Only Kisses for your RD. Very well maintained all locking stock including the Saree Guard & Carrier. Very Nice.

Cheers!!!

Very well maintained RD. I've got an RD myself in Bangalore. Any pointers to where i could lay my hands on some spares? Mainly the Headlamp Unit, Side Indicators, Meters and Tail Lamps.

@Nandish - Where do you get your bike serviced in Bangalore? I usually get mine serviced at Joe's Garage in Shivaji Nagar. Since I stay in Koramangala, I find it a little cumbersome to go down to Shivaji Nagar for minor servicing. It would be great if you could give me some pointers on decent RD mechanics in and around Koramangala.

My +1 to that. I like the stock look except for the Rajdoot decal. I have a stock RD too.

The parts you mentioned are easily available in Mumbai.
