    He must've basically converted your headlamps to 60/55 or 90/100 that's all. Check the wattage on your bulb & keep us posted.

    Not that it cannot be done, it will need additional charging coils on the stator.

    Errr...what is that you're trying to say? I haven't got a thing. If you've a starting trouble? Check for these things & post...
    1. Color of your spark plug - preferably pictures
    2. Is your cylinder head heating up enough for even a 1-2 Kms ride?
    3. What's your carb make & model? Is it stock or after market?
    4. What's the air filter you've got? Stock or after market?

    Man, the mech told me that the Gladiators toptube is a direct fit to the RX100. Not only him, many mechs told me that. Also I admit that I could not stay with the mech during the works, since I had to go home for few days during the work. (Work was done at Cochin and I am from an another city).

    About the electricals, I know what things are working on DC in a bike. But I am not sure about what things are need to be changed to convert an AC circuit in a bike to a DC one.

    I have a starting problem (not the cold starting issue) if the bike returns good milleage figures. If I retune the carb to get the starting issue sort out the mileage will be gone.

    Also the spark plug is normal. No over heating. Carb is stock. I had aftermarket airfilter. Yesterday I replaced it with stock filter. Right now, the bike returns good mileage. But it got starting issue. Don't have any problem with cold starting. But if I turn off the engine after riding, it fails to start again.

    If my understanding is correct, you already plonked on your bike is it?

    No I haven't done yet & now with the new disc pads, I don't think I even need that anymore. This pad will last another 25K & I've another spare to last for another 25K

    But I've almost completed checking feasibility & they seem a perfect match. But wait...you don't even need Gladiator's suspension, I'm working on something else
