@Free Will. If the deal is good then go for it. Owning an yamaha 2S is all together a different feel.

To start up I would suggest you do the engine - like gaskets, oil seals, check if it has got more noises then see if it can just be solved by replacing the rings.
next chains and sprokets, junctions as in electricals, carburettor cleaning.. replace battery if it had gone. You don't have to rebuild the engine base as RX100s are one of the best that Yamaha sold in India. I have personally seen my uncles Rx100 doing 80K kms on the odo, just by doing scheduled maintenece (oil change, chain lube, proper fuel, airfilter replacement) the other thing is he never crossed 90 on the speedo.

Also, get a chain case, 2t Oil Tank, indicators and check the oilpump for correctness and tyres.

Do not do any (performance) modifications to the engine, just get it blue printed and run it for atleast 750 kms. I know lot of stock bikes especially like apache rtr and others might fly pass.. trust me.. the thing you can do on an RX has seen no boundaries till..

Anyways, congrats for your purchase Freewill. Ride safe.
I am not sure if it was named "Tiger" or not, but its true that RX125 was a limited run machine.

I had an option to choose between RX100, RX125 or Shogun back then.

I went ahead with Shogun. No regrets.

Very much miss that bike now.

Hey Freewill can I know how much you got it for, I got a Rx100 a year ago for 6500/- but had to do considerable work, with the paint job still pending.

Slick rx 100 is very hard to come by in chennai have seen pathetic state rx for 18 K, RX is in high demand over here all of a sudden. I bought mine for 13 K to me its not woth more than 8K a year ago. No one wants to sell RX 100 anymore.

I dont have to do too much on cosmetics but I am going to change

1) Bore KIt
2) Chain sprocket
3) Con ROD and main bearings
4) 12 V Electrics
5) New oil pump
6) Speedo Casing
7) Proper stock seat

Air filter I replaced it myself a local one for time being as the one which was inside was long dead and buried

Paper work is getting delayed will wait till tomorrow or I would do the paper work with other person. Work on the bike will start next week. In chennai you can get genuine yamaha parts from the poonamali high road dealership, all you need to do is give the list of parts pay the money and it will be courierd to you in 2 days.

Default Its all Done. RX 100 resurrected to its glory.

Hi All

Thanks for all your support. My Mech has done an awsome job on the RX 100. When I tested the bike I got the same feeling when I pressed the pedal of a Beamer for the first time, it goes like a dream.

Now its time for new tyres can anyone prescribe some good front and rear tyres for my RX 100 thanks in advance.

Some pics of my RX 100

Good job on the bike but you could have asked your mechanic to get the 100 meter. This one looks like the 135 4-speed meter.

For tires if you're looking at on and off road grip then buy the MRF Moto-D.
If you are planning only slow speed city riding then the MRF Zappers from the Pulsars will do just fine.
You could go for less expensive options like Ceat, TVS and Dunlop but they dont grip the road as well as the MRF's

@ Free Will

Nice pics ! The switchgear on the bike is not one of an RX100 though. Why did'nt you go in for the original handlebar instead of the one with the crosspiece which is mostly used in motocross bikes ?

Anybody tried putting a RX100 stock pipe on to a RX135 5spd? Does it give the same beat?
I had tried this on my RX-135 which I sold last year.
So much time spent at the mechanic and fabrication shops but still couldnt get any where near the Rx-100's sound. Gave up on this at the end.

The beat of my RX 100 is so sweet that i start it every morning as soon as i get up to listen to the beat. Never did any mods to the silencer its stock.

Switchgear, my Mech said this is better than the stock I saw him remove the choke lever from the switch gear, I just went by mech's word kinda like the indicator switch in that switchgear. Handlebars came with the bike and its very comfortable to ride and make me sit with my back straight so didnt want to change the handlebars "No sore back".

This I never noticed will ask my mech, anyways is there much difference between 135 and 100 meter

Thanks for the input have decided on MRF Zapper Q for rear and FV for front.
