  • RX rebuild Using 3 Yamaha Variants

    Hi Guys
    I'm looking to buy a new Rx100 cylinder & piston assembly. I enquired about this with a dealer here in Chennai & they gave me a strange answer. However, I'm going to try that, meanwhile, I thought I could discuss about this in our community & take your opinion.

    They asked me to send an email to Yamaha customer care & request for the parts & ship them to the nearest dealer. They provided me a contact number - 0120 2351193 stating that this is Yamaha's customer care number.

    I'm wondering if this is the case in every city. Pls post your thoughts. Thanks.

        Reliability? Is he a Yamaha dealer? I would prefer having with the bills.

        Meanwhile I tried the number the Chennai dealer gave me, it always says "Connection Error"!!!

          ^ No he is not any dealer LoL!
          He is a known name among tuners circle here in xbhp. Not a conman for sure You can probably PM him.

          jd666 & navnish might also be of help.

          @jd666 & navnish :-Sorry Gentlemen for taking your names w/o asking.

          EDIT: If it is not your regular ride, I suggest you not to panic. There has been issues with RX series parts of late. It is expected to be sorted out very soon. Infact a dealer whom I spoke to told me couple of months back that from Jan (2010) parts should arrive.

          Good Luck :-)

          EDIT: Contact this fellow:- K.L.M Rao, South Zone Manager, Yamaha India-9980736736. Give him a piece of your mind.

            Sounds good to me. I'll give a shot first thing tomorrow morning. Actually, I'm sick of relying upon the mechanics & automobile parts sellers in Chennai for all these years!!! I'm looking out to buy something with bill even if it means paying up taxes, but I prefer having originals to restore this 19 year old bike.

                  ^^ already checked with them mate. They only have other spare parts, No cylinder kits, body plastic parts or anything else. And the cylinder kit that they are recommending or suggesting is the Diamond kit ( which is an aftermarket kit, not OEM).

                    I spoke to him few minutes back, he asked me to give a call in the evening (cut the line before noting down the time). So will post the updates in the evening after speaking to him. Thanks a lot Nitin. Appreciate very much. Pls let me know if I can refer your name or just keep it as a friend of mine as reference through which I obtained the number?

                    But are they OE? How easy/difficult will it be to get the parts from Delhi to Chennai? Also, did you enquire about Rx100 recently? Asking so many questions because a few months back, these dealers in Chennai, told me, ask me anything you get everything for Rx. But now they're tones are changing.

                      I do agree on the yamaha parts demand in chennai. Just few days back when I enquired about the OEM cyclinder kit on the Paras yamaha in Mount road and they told that it is in Demand You have to book it eraly like 3-4 months ... also the price will be going to increase to 8K something ...Guys why this happening from Yamaha....

                      Please let me know if you got the original cyclinder kit?

                      Thanks,
                      Jay

                        Sure I will. Did they say 3-4 months? Then its really a good sign. Ambal says there's no supply for last 6 months. No bend pipes, no meter, no core (said NO right on the face for the core), no silencer.

                          Update
                          I spoke to Mr.Rao few minutes back. He confirmed that I need to leave the bike to Yamaha Authorized Service Station (YASS) for restoration. He said that the parts will not be available over the service counter & hence need to take the bike to YASS, check the bike thoroughly with the mech for all the required parts, note down the list & send an email to [email protected] asking for the availability of the parts. Upon confirmation of all the parts, the bike to be sent to YASS & opens a job card. Yamaha Motor then sends the parts for the specified job & thus the parts are available as fitted in vehicle rather than over the counter.

                          As of now I don't have any issues since I'm planning to restore the bike to stock; not sure if there's any hitch here.

                            You are most welcome man. Quoting my name won't help anywhere LoL! I got that fellow's number from Yamaha's customer care. You can also say that if at all he asks.

                            Dealers themselves don't have a good opnion about him (they call him insane). I gave his number so that pressure could build up on him/Yamaha day by day.

                            If you have good A.S.C then there is no harm in adopting Mr. Rao's method, else it is going to be lot of tension and frustration.

                            If you know an independent workshop/mechanic who enjoys your 100% confidence, then it is better to source the kit independently.

                            All the best

                            EDIT: If you are sourcing it independently be prepared to pay some premium over M.R.P which is Rs. 5995.

                              Hitch No.1-> That email ID doesn't work. I tried sending one, but I got a delivery failed message.

                              Hitch No.2-> There is going to be significant time outlay in procuring the parts.

                              Hitch No.3-> Whom will you contact in Yamaha (read along with Hitch No.1)? There is no escalation mechanism available. One fellow in the Yamaha office told me there are Japnese above Mr.Rao. Don't know how far it is true.

                              Hitch No.3-> You will be at the mercy of A.S.C which means you might end up paying too much and worse still obtain poor workmanship.

                              I take back my words. I wouldn't suggest you to take this route.

                              Procure the parts independently and then get it done from a good technician.
