    Unhappy RX135, Need help!!!

    Hi Guys,

    I have been riding my RX135 for the last 3.5Years, 46K kms without any problem at all. All of a sudden, in the last couple of days I have been facing some problems with it. I had changed the silencer from the cat-con to the normal RX100 chrome silencer (not the original yamaha make, its made in Delhi and looks similar to the original one) and changed the piston rings as well, as they had worn out.

    After those changes, my spark-plug got spoilt in a week and had to replace it with a new Mico spark-plug. The problem with the bike now is, that after I ride it for about 20Kms over 70KMPH it starts to cough and pretends like its gonna stop. Am not sure what the problem is, I'm wondering if this problem is because of:

    1. The new silencer.
    2. 2T Oil flowing into the engine is very less.

    Guys please help!

    Cheers,
    Sandeep

    PS: Am not a 2stroke or bike literate, pardon me if I have not used the right names.

    And does it actually stop?
    If so, it is most probably the lack of 2T oil and prolonged riding like this may result in a siezure. (Though smokers can endure such torture for like ages before they actually sieze) Try adding a lil more 2Toil with the petrol.

    Thanks guys.
    It does not stop as I get the speed down to about 40KMPH and it goes ok for a km or so, I have not gone beyond a km at 40KMPH as I'd have reached my destination (my office )
    I'll increase the 2T oil flow, get the carb fine tuned and let you'll know if that helps.

    Finally I got to go to the mech, but what a rip-off! This is what happened...

    I went to a mech and told him about my bike pretending to stop, he removes the spark-plug and tells me that this is the wrong one, Yamaha uses W5BC and what was in there was a TVS's spark plug. And had to spend Rs70 for it, after which he tuned the carb...

    I would like to know if the change in spark-plug was the problem, as the other mech told me it does not really matter.

    After which I went n got a little stickering done. I was still not happy, there was something missing! So, I went to a pretty "famous" mech in RT Nagar, Bangalore and asked him to do something to get my bike to go a little faster as well as to get the bike roaring when I go beyond 50KMPH. He took about 4hours, modified the muffler and did some tuning for which he charged me 600bucks! This morning when I took the bike out, it was only the roar which sounded awesome, but the performance was still the same

    He had also mentioned that if I wanted it to reach about 130-140 KMPH, I had to get the piston changed and this would take 2days n 2.5K.

    So, on the whole I spent 1K just for the roar, spark-plug n little stickering

    Guys, do you know any mech who is really good n cheap to get my bike where I want?

    Yamaha provides BPR7HS spark plug for all the bikes, use either Mico or NGK both are equally good

    Hee hee what to say man, he might have just pulled off the three muffler caps and given you away and charged you 600 bucks. if you had taken it to a gas welding shop nearby 60 to 100 matter over, just modifying your muffler doesn't increase performance all you get is only sound

    He had also mentioned that if I wanted it to reach about 130-140 KMPH, I had to get the piston changed and this would take 2days n 2.5K.

    If you have his number call him up and ask what piston ? what size ? what make ?

    My suggestion keep the stock piston and get it ported.

    So, on the whole I spent 1K just for the roar, spark-plug n little stickering

    Mistakes will always make a man learn better, it's good if you realize it.

    Guys, do you know any mech who is really good n cheap to get my bike where I want?

    Which part of bangalore is nearer to you ? i mean near to your residence !
