    Smile Yamaha RX 100

    Hi Guys,

    I recently bought a Yamaha rx 100. I am the 3rd owner.
    The bike has been fully done up. But i have been experiencing some problems.
    The average of the bike is approx 30-35 kms. Sometimes i feel that the cluth is dragging while pick-up. And the max speed i have touched on my bike 100. My regular mechanic is from mulund (colony) by the name of Swami.
    Could u guys help me out as to what all do i need to check and do to get my bike smoother and faster. I hv heard abt the rdd cdi kit, jus wanted to know, wht difference it will make if i change from cdi to rdd cdi.
    Recently i hv been to lonavla with my yami and i drove at a speed of 60-70 fearing that the bike might overheat or might hv ne problems, but to my shock i had a nice ride. The only thing rx-100 lacks is a 5th gear. Coz in long rides u have to really push the throttle and bike feels like its dragging.
    I am planning to fit disc brakes in the front wheel.
    Also is there any suggestion to increase fuel efficiency.
    I am even adding 2T oil when i put fuel + the 2T oil which is seperate.
    Also i want speedometers of rd350, ne suggestions where i can get them.
    and ne suggestions for long rides (maintenance & riding)

    disconnect the oil pumps supply and start adding the oil manually to the tank cuz the RX100's oil pumps are prone to going kaput every now and then...
    that manually adding will make the "safeness" secure....

    Ps. that'll also prevent the tank from rusting too.....

    You can try using Gulf 2T racing semi synthetic oil. I'm using for my RX 135. I feel the smoothness and pick up performance is bettered. Gulf is pocket friendly if Motul stares at you with big price tag.

    For engine oil, would suggest Shell / Petronas semi synth. It is very good.

    Always try not to jump to the top speed. Rather take it step by step, your engine will not cry also helps in long life.

    Once in 6 months you might want to try to sand blast the silencer for better performance.

    Check for engine oil level periodically.

    generally, you will have less issues of engine cooling on the highway because you are cruising at a steady speed and the engine gets enough air passing around it to keep it happy. its the city start-stop traffic which can be potentially bothersome.
    under any circumstance, the rx has a large fin area compared to the engine size, so overheating is never an issue unless something is botched up.

    you are touching 100 and getting 35kpl, be happy with it.
    performance can be improved... and not necessarily at the expense of fuel consumption and engine life. but its a not-so-vicious circle. once you start down the path, you always want more power.

    disk brake in the front is the best thing you can do to the bike.
    then you can go for a better filter + jets.
    then you can go for a better cdi
    then you can go for some mild porting
    then you can go for basic chambers
    then you can go for higher compression heads
    then you can go for a better carb
    then you can go for rearsets
    then you can go for clipons
    then you can go for a 5 speed conversion
    then you can go for a 135 5 speed barrel and crank
    then you can go for a really high rpm setup on those barrels
    then you can go for a better chamber to go with that
    then you can go for better sprocketing
    then you can go for weight reduction
    then you can go for a big bore
    then you can go for chambers to go with that
    then you can go for better suspension and running gear
    then you can go for a fairing
    then i can say "see what i mean?"

    LOL...

    i may have certainly omited many things here.

    the point is that you have to decide where to stop.
    personally, i would go the whole way and end up with a fantastic track bike.

    cheers
    Abhishek

    Wink thanks for ur promt reply and help

    hey guys,

    thanxs for the quick response and inputs,
    will try the pulsar fork assembly for the disc brakes when i come down to mum around feb. also my mechanic says dat the entire 1 litre engine is too much for the yami, so he removes some oil saying that too much oil can also cause a problem. is that true.

    i guess sand blasting clears off all the carbon deposited on the muffler to give the bike a free exhaust..correct me if m wrong guys..!
