    Hello Muthu Sir,

    Thank you so much for the contact details, really appreciate that!


    @Sixspeedtwin,

    I believe the yezdi 350 silencers looks somewhat similar to a RD-350 silencer, having a more round shape at the end.

    As do the Yezdi Deluxe and the 250D Classic At least in some years. On a side note, to my mind the only difference in the two bikes is the rear decal. I've seen some with a 250D Classic on it and others with 250 Deluxe written on it. Anything else different anyone's noticed?

    The other day I was peering at a single owner '89 D250 Classic with the cut off pipes. This is one of the less common ones I've come across though. Most of the Deluxes all had the cut-off pipes. I personally haven't compared it in detail to the 350 so I wouldn't know but I'm quite happy to take sixspeedtwin's word for it considering his collection

    Take a look though

    Hello Ray: I have a Deluxe, and it did not come with the Round silencers. It came with the usual Roadking Silencers.
    But i managed to get a pair of those round silencers here in chennai for Rs 1800 a pair. New ones, not used and stored, small small scratches, but definately worth if you like the beat of the round silencers.






    But i doubt if these had come in the 350's! they had a diff silencers. Maybe due to lack of knowledge ppl just put these as they were available in plenty when compared to the 350 silencers.
    Correct me if i am wrong.

    Nice set of pipes srini. Very fortunate buy that.

    I do think you're wrong about the Deluxe because there is more than one that I've come across where the cut off pipes were factory fitted. Thing is however that on several counts, the Yezdi history seems a bit hazy with no clearcut correlation between year of manufacture and exact parts sported. I've come across single-owner Jawas (owned by friends' parents and suchlike) which actually came from the factory with the Yezdi Type B fittings (square footpegs, square tail light, etc.) and other weird anomalies. I think there were possibly years or periods when the deluxe did come with the cut off silencers and others where perhaps it didn't. Personally I have never come across a Deluxe with the regular Yezdi/RK silencers but its certainly possible.

    As for whether its the same as the 350 or not, I have no opinion on it since I haven't owned a 350 and really haven't spent much time with the bike.

    Speaking of which, is that now the only one missing from your collection Srini? That and a '61 tank switch Jawa eh?

    Cheers

    Rahul

    Actually we cannot predict a year with a model. Roadkings used to come from 79 till 96. Lots of changes, improvements, trials. I had seen an Roadking with a clock, where the Key was there, and the key was shifted betweeen both the cups.

    That man has a few more pipes of this kind. Anyone interested let me know.

    The RD-350 itself came with 3 types of silencers. The first lot ('83-'84 High-End-Torque) came with flat or chopped ends, the second and third types were seen on Low-End-Torque models with proper taper like RX100 and midway taper (between RX and RD HeT types) respectively.

    As for Yezdi 350, having owned 2 bikes I can vouch for the fact that the Y-350 and the Deluxe model silencers are the same.

    Hi Sixspeedtwin,

    I have attached a pic of Yezdi 350. The silencers are more rounded towards the end. As you explained that RD itself came with different type of silencers for its HT & LT models, this may be the case with Yezdi 350 as well. You are very senior to me and I respect you for that.

    Cheers!
