Default The Yamaha 'RX' Thread (with pics)

If you have/had a Yamaha RX100, RXG, RX135, RX-Z or even RX-S-
Please post the details such as
month/year of purchase,
original colour,
Kms done,
period of ownership,
mods done if any
and whatever else you may like to mention but keep it as brief as possible.
Please post any pics of the same.

Also try to keep the O/T replies as less as possible so that the thread is more like a data bank of RX bikes.

Please take very good care of it.
Very limited numbers of those and very difficult to find one in a good condition, provided you can get the owner to sell it in the first place.
I knew a guy who would ride one to work daily at 50-60kmph max and that bike must have never seen the other side of 70 most probably- turned down my 4-5 offers over a period of 6 months inspite of offering whatever he may have liked.

I had a 1997 RXG and another 1997 rx135 (4 speed) but sold off both of them. Now I have a RX 135 5 Speed. Will post the pics later.

'98 4 speed RX-135. Thinking whether I should get it ported or not. Its running the second last size of piston which means I can use one more. 75 I think.

@alstonvaz You got a brilliant looking one. So did you get it in pune itself? Dealer or a private person?

Try out what? I want the new Rossi replica now. I was once wearing it and riding a CBR and some guys caught up with me on a signal and asked me about it rather than asking about the bike.

That is the older seat. Someone gave me a seat later which I'm using right now though I don't know if it looks better.

Hi i too was once an RX owner. I had a 135 5 speed version. Unfortunately during those days i was not much into photo sessions so i don't have any photo of the bike at present. I sold the bike couple of years ago. Here are few videos of my bike.

Me cleaning the bike. Killer is the camera man cum director.



Now here's Killer riding the bike. Gunman is Motorbreath.
