If you want more details about what RD is browse its best indian forum.

Received the AUTO ESCORT ignition kit for RD today in the mail.

it cost me 3450 including the postage. the kit seems to be fine . the Coils are a DUMB design. i hope it works just fine. i am sure that it would be any day better than the POINTs.

+100000...why not? It HAS to work better than the stock point design. Since you were on the best RD forum, you need to seriously consider getting the digital CDI too.

Those are sleeved cylinders, just look at the bottom end of the cylinder, you can see the sleeve sitting.

Autoescorts will save you the pain of setting points, thats it. If you really want performance go with the RDD cdi unit, its easy to install and works like a charm. Don't know if its still available though for domestic market.

The RDD CDI unit is way to expensive and then i am not building any performance RD. i am just trying to build it as stock as possible. Autoescort kit would make sure that it works a lot better than the POINTS for sure.

Thats rite the barrels were sleeved and really bad quality work.

Autoescort is a company that manufature EUREKA brand ignitions we had one in our maruti 800.

The bike has not been used since April 2009 till 17th of this month. It is in Delhi with me and the bike will start aall new journey. i have still to see the bike tomorrow and pick it up from the transport to take it to Noida.

Mr. Sumit Mehndiratta would be doing the works on the bike.

I am attaching some photos that are from the time we Rode the bike from Ludhiana to Muktsar. ride was flawless.

Enjoy. will try to post as much as i can.

thanks all.

Thanks for posting Rajat. it would have been nice to meet up with you that day.

***********
Update every one,

Engine Work is done.
many parts had to be change from the engine. like the main Gear shaft as the original one was having welding on it and things like that.

We took the delivery of the Yama and rode around 1.5 KM and the plug fouled rite after the entry to the Noida DND. Sumit was nice to come around and change it for me.

after that riding for 5 KM heated up the bike. it would shut after using the cluthc.

took a small break for 5 mins and good to go. reached Gurgaon.
and then in the morning on sunday droped off the RD to IQBAL for the disk brake installation.

Going to do a Nissin caliper front and rear with RTR disks.

did total of around 80 KM on the bike with the new rebuild.

i would need to do around 1200-1500 KM before i really start having fun.

Thanks

Will definitely meet up the next time...

Make sure to run-in quite well, it will decide how well your engine performs,

Some Tips -

1. Run-in early morning or late evenings : This will ensure less traffic and cooler temperature (though Delhi must be very cold right now)
2. Add some extra 2T to the fuel
3. Carry a plug-spanner and a few spare plugs, just in case your plugs foul at some deserted street

While you have RD in initial run-in period, the 'Mico Super' works best
They work well with 2T rich mixture and rarely foul.

Also keep 2 additional plugs with you just in case. Later you can reuse the foul plug. Just get a small cloth, wet it in a petrol and wrap it on plug head then burn it. This will burn the carbon and will make the plug ready for next used (ofcourse unless the plugs are short)

Later, after the run-in you can switch over to NGK Iridium
