Default Re: RD 350 after complete re-build.

Good thing is it's restored back to stock, stock is the best, and I always liked the way a stock RD 350 looked, by the way is it a HT or LT?, I have owned one myself a long time ago, and remember there was always this difference talks about High Torque and Low Torque varients, din't get it then much, don't get it much now too, even though I know what Torque means. What I know is, the RD 350 is a mighty fast machine and sure a trill to ride.

Its HT.
One question to all,
which one is better ? Adding 2 T oil in the petrol or put 2T oil separately (in the 2 T tank)?

I prefer using premix as ive had a bad experience once when the pump died out on me and the engine seized!

Your RD 350 reminds of the same kind I had for over 2 years.But it had the dubious distinction of spending more time with the mechanic than me.
anyway,your RD looks simply awesome.Good luck.

Nice! Hats off to such an exhaustive rebuild! For info, how much did it cost you and your friend to rebuild this from that scrap. and how much did the bike in scrap condition cost.

Here is a pic of my 1986 LT

If the oil pump is in top notch condition, nothing like it. Maybe keep the pumping to little higher setting for our hot conditions. Otherwise premix is a safe option. My bike always ran off the pump without any glitch.

Kevin, the scrap cost about 25K, and a lot for the restoration. It took about two years to complete. I am looking for some more scrap pictures, if I get I will upload.

Ram sir, sorry to hear about your experience. This one runs okay right now without much issues. It is not a daily runner actually.

Jaggu, James and others, thanks a lot for the tip on Oil, planning to do the same.

With thanks and regards
