Ooops! Did I say frustration? I must have meant joy.

For some people, RDs never leave their lives. For others, they just move on and keep up with the times.

Default Never sell the RD !

Well, Modern technology lures you a lot and I agree that baby Ninja looks good and performs well !
But it can never come close to the respect RD gets in INDIA among the youth or at least people who know RD's and have had a chance to ride a good one... Maintainence is high but you dont sell something you love for Money do you ???
You can cruise around on even 40kmph on the sixth gear in a good RD.
DONT SELL IT ! !

Why is everyone so taken by the original exhausts?
Ok, my bike probably won't appeal to many, but my expansion chambers and aluminum cans sound MUCH better [slightly louder though], add significant performance, and are lighter than the stock pipes.
In the US [where this bike lived in it's first incarnation] practically every enthusiast who owned an RD changed the pipes.
Any book on 2-stroke tuning will tell you about the importance of a tuned exhaust.
[A, graham Bell, "Two-Stroke Performance Tuning" is my bible]
Am I missing something? perhaps some shoddy ones have been sold in India?

The end cane dosent looks like meant for 2 stroke bikes and if you running them with stock bent pipe then the chamber is hardly useful, a proper US made chambers costs more then RD price over here.Mind it a dent free decent RD pipes also costs over 10-12K in india.

Hi,
Why do I get the impression that that was never in doubt!

You're the man vinjaram!!! Keep that beauty with you forever. And about the exhaust pipes. I know of no other bikes where a twin exhaust pipe goes so well with other than the RD350. They just look stunning with those stock pipes, and the noise, let me borrow Jezza's words here, the noise is like god having unusual sex!!! :-) Keep her running my friend, and buy a Ninja too... the more the better!!! Cheers!

it depends what kind of person you are.... some get really attached to raw power and want to stick with it and some just like to keep moving with different performance bike.

If you are of the later kind, then go for ninja. if not stick with RD.

You can buy a Ninja 250 even after 5 years, you just cant find an RD with the same ease

Moral of the Story: A Legend is a Legend, dont try to find a replacement
