    Default Need help with Rx 100 parts and paint Job

    Hello everyone,

    I just recently acquired my first bike which is a RX100 1991 Model and in the process of getting it restored with the original parts.

    I want to know if there is anyone who could be trusted to get Rx100 parts.

    Also i Want a paint Job to be done. A complete Paint Job for the Nut, bold and Engine.

    Is is advised to go for a complete paint job and should i let go some parts on the bike which might let down me in performance??

    My engine oil is leaking below and i have tried to fix it but everytime i go for a ride and come back it does it.

    One of my friend said it is normal and i have no clue Please help

    Its not normal; your crankcase has a broken chip somewhere inside OR the center casing has to be resealed.

    Rx 100 as your first bike? Man..Congrats..You're gonna have a hell of a sweet time. But, Trust me, it's all worth it at the climax.

    AFAIK, all Rx 100 parts are readily available in any reputes YASS/ Showrooms, so sourcing parts is not an issue for you as of now.

    Paint Job is only for the Tank, Side Shields, Chassis, Fork legs, Wheel Hubs, Chain guard cover, Head & Bore. Rest of the fasteners should be Zinc plated. Seen a Golden Yellowish color on the newer fasteners that you get from Hardware stores?? The same finish.

    I quite didn't understand what you meant here.

    It will be normal to ur friend as long as the bike belongs to you. On a serious note, as Aargee pointed out either there is a drain bolt issue or ur crank case has chipped off. Better see to it at the earliest.

    Hi all,

    I am a 2-stroke freak & a RX100 Fan. Recently I bought a very old RX100, and its 1986 model & in good condition.

    But i notice there is a slight oil leak on the engine side (where the Oil pump is located). Is it normal ? or do i need to check the Oil pump etc.,

    Also it is still running on 6V, resulting in poor lighting & Horn. I learnt that it can be upgraded by just rewinding the lighting-Coil + Magneto Charging.
    Please suggest.
