    On the contrary, he wants his RX to be silent.. We are not really in the picture what' his bike sounds like but only ask him to compare with fellow RX in his city if his bike is loud and his answer is Yes. So loads of inputs given for him to take it forward.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks a lot Guys, I guess the issue seems to be resolved .

    As suggested by 'Sriram', I was able to replace the muffler(silencer core) of the RX 100 with another one for RX 100. That seems to have resolved the issue.
    Also, cleaned out all the glass wool and now its sounder better without it.

    Specially like to thank Sriram for taking time out to talk to me and providing various options that helped in resolved this

    That's what we were trying to say here. Anyways, only you can differentiate the sound if it is loud and not that loud. Have fun!

    the sound is not from engine... it is from the exhaust the important thing is the silencer is fully altered..and then inside of the tank is fully rust.. to avoid the helicopter sound i cleaned my tank.. it gives one day correct beat before that i changed the jet it gives one week correct beat...now again it starts when the beat changed like helicopter i want to give extra throttle for correct beat so plz give some tips to get the correct beat
