Would really love to see the RX-Z rebuilt, that too to bone stock condition without any mods. Expecting a new paint-job too

Yes its going to be bone stock"ish", The paintjob will be custom, but the restoration will be stock, or will it be?

Plans is to convert it to 5 speed and big bore

This is the inspiration

Lovely build as usual Pramod.

You are a must visit person on my next visit to TVM.

Any particular reason why you decided to make the wheels black? I am asking this since you said you are going to make it "bone stockish"

Best Regards & Ride Safe

The black wheels always looked awesome. I had a spare RD wheel which was lying around. I decided to use it since it gives a really nice stance to a bike which has a bit unusual rear height. It gives the look of a 16 inch rim which I donít really like to be honest.

You are free to drop in anytime, give me a call before you drop in so that I can confirm my presence

The build is now in its final stages, I need to start the bike sometime this week. My schedule at work is not really conducive either

One of the most fiddly bit is to align the panels and to fit the brake lever. That's pending. Rest everything on track.

Any particular reason as to why you are using the RD Handlebar instead of the Stock Shogun one?

The bar handles look great, they are very comfortable to ride.

Took the shogun on a shakedown run yesterday, it was behaving nicely.


Things needing fix
  • The clutch was little high for my liking.
  • The rear brakes needs adjusting.
  • The rear end is not getting ground so none of the rear lights work.
  • The battery is drained so need to charge that.
  • The bike was fluttering, need to check the 2t ratio
  • The accelerator is too tight for my liking(but can work as a cruise control )
  • The stand is too short, need to do some Jugad for that
  • Side stand not fixed yet
  • saree guard needs fixing
  • Speedo needs fixing
  • Rear brake switch needs fixing
  • Engine kill switch needs to be fixed
  • Front brake light switch needs wiring
  • Need to re-torque the head bolts, there is a mild compression leak
  • Side covers needs to be fixed
  • New number plates(period correct)
  • New flute

The shogun is complete. Before completing it I wanted to do a comprehensive guide to wiring the bike. So, below is the most comprehensive guide to wiring a shogun. Enjoy!



PS: No disturbing music in the video

Pramod, very nice video ! Liked the way you have explained, and use of time-lapse.

How is the parts availability for the Shogun ?

Thanks!

Online + Offline everything is available. Since shogun shares a lot of its parts with Samurai parts are easily available.
