Crash guards were always a dealership accessory, yes plated butterfly were the first and then came rods, somehow plated butterfly might not gel with the black bike. They go well with red and silver rx and hence suggested. Also if you can try sourcing the grab rail with carrier that came in the first bikes, that will go well with the butterfly crash rod and even a saree guard

Kapil, how much does that inverted butterfly crash guard cost? (I suppose, you mean the looped one).

I replaced my bike's crashguard after a moron bent it in parking lot (must have banged on it). It cost me cool Rs.400/-. I am thinking that it is on the higher side. My mechanic is trusted one, so I doubt if he is cheating me.

Hey Jaggu Bhai please check my Garage and see if the Inverted Butterfly goes with the black one or not.

@RX135 . the crash guard is going to be between 400-500 Gandhies and a local one would be 250

@kapil - The bike looks awesome. Superb job you have done on her! My sincere Congratulations!!

@Yamboy - Your bike also looks neat & well maintained.

Looking at your two rides, the song in that Yamaha advt. comes to my mind "Listen to the heartbeat, of the Yamaha". May your tribe increase.

Nice. Attention to detail and devotion to originality - two admirable qualities. You sir, epitomize the bond that men like us develop with their machines.

@Nutty Nair - Thanks Man !!!

@Kapil - One more thing. In the Clutch & 2T Pump cover there should be a black round over the Yamaha Symbol. You can take it to any painter who writes the number plates & get this done easily.

Cheers!!!

Congrats Kapil!!! You have done a fantastic job. I really appreciate the amount of hard-work and commitment you have made.

Reminds me of the overhauling & paintwork I did on my RX135 an year ago.
Requires lot of patience and perseverance.

My bike too sports a Samurai dome. The beam is better compared to the original ones. Which bulb are you using?

Do fix the OEM butterfly type crash-guards. IMHO, they look better than the cross-bars and provides better protection to legs & bike. Have saved me many times from others bumping on to me.

One question - did 87 RXs originally come with buffed cylinder head, fork, wheels hubs. Yours is a painted one, but I think the earlier RXs came with these parts buffed same like the RD.

Anyways, your bike is really cute. Hope she looks all the same as time ticks.

Please most more pics and videos of the bike.

- Jose.

The bike has come out better than expected. It looks like its just rolled out from the showroom. One thing though, check the fron tyres. They're mounted in the wrong direction.

Nope, the tyre mounting looks correct. The way it's mounted on Kapil's bike matches the way it's mounted correctly on my Karizma. I guess Kapil and I have same tyres on our rides, Zapper FS. Which is the tyre on oyur RX V12?
