Default Yamaha RX100 6V Battery.

Yamaha RX100 6V Battery is available in Vijaynagar, Bangalore. For those of you who know the area, the name of the shop/store(its not a service center) is Hegde Motors and is few steps away from Gurushree hospital. I got one couple of days back (AMCO).

Not trying to advertise here. I was told here in Hyderabad that 6V battery is not available and the solution is to get a 12V system done. Thought this piece of info might be of some use to other RX100 fans.

One does not need to get a 12 Volt system done if their 100 is on a 6Volt. putting in a 12 volts would just do fine. i was using it for almost 2 years with a SF battery

Ofcourse not!!! Why would one have 12V system if they have 6V battery?

What I meant was, I was told 6V battery is no longer available. Since, one cant put a 12V battery without changing everything else with the electricals, the only option is to get a 12V battery, wiring, etc. So, just thought it might be of some use to let the RX100 enthusiasts know that 6V battery is still available and they dont have to go through the 12V, rewiring and all that grind.

My mech once told me the only things you have to change toconvert to 12V is the battery, bulbs and the RR unit. if thats true, why not go 12V?

They quote anywhere between Rs.1500-3000 . Why spend so much whenyou can get it done in Rs.700 Besides, reliability may be an issue. Dont know how many people have trouble free experience with it.

Sorry to say please read my post above , or here it is I had been running a 6v setup same Bulbs, RR units and ever thing else for 2 years and at that time i HAD A 12 V SF battery on the bike, no problems are all so its just a missconception that one has to change the system to a 12 v to Run the 12 V battery.

Sorry but thats not true thats again just a work around and the setup is not proper.

Again 700 is what you paid for a 6v Battery, you could have got a 12 V for the same money or a little bit more.

Every thing certainly woud work fine till the time you run every thing stock, I recently got a RDD CDi for my RX, the CDI would not work for a setup simmilar to you. so we had to change the maggnet and the coils aswell to get the proper out put and it works wonders after that.

Okay, so what is the correct procedure and what all parts are needed?

Its up there in the last post but let me give you a list any thing missing would be added latter on

i used the 12V setup from the RX135 cause the wirring harness of the 12V rx was not a dirrect fit for thr RDD CDI,

- Wirring.
- Magnet.
- Main Coil (Pulsar and HT coil can be retained.)
- RR unit.
- Oh the Bulbs and if wanted the Horn aswell.

(Bulbs do tend to fuse, i know because i did not change that when i did the 12v setup and had to lose on the Main head lite that apparently had the original Bulb, means 15 years old. i dont know how it was there. but even i dont remember ever changing that in last few years till the time my memory can run)

Sunny would like to add on. According to me if you are not going to run any kind of mods or any thing on the bike then the way your mech told you

This would be fine cause the conversion takes some what around 3K.

I was also in doubt, since all the 12V RX100s i've seen had a new swiss wiring loom. Thanks for clarifying

Default Re: Yamaha RX100 6V Battery.

My friend has recently bought a Yamaha RX 100 of 1995 model. Currently there is a 12 volt battery which is not functioning and needs a replacement. However, the discussions in the forum mentions the use of a 6 volt battery. Can anyone confirm whether the last phase of RX 100 produced came with 12 volt battery instead of 6 volt?

I don't know from when, but for sure 95 models were 12V battery & wiring kit.
