    3. Uhm... That's it.
    1.No, you can't open the seat, however, if you install a 135 lockable tool box, which goes behind the engine, you can easily store your documents and other small items like spare plugs etc in it.

    2. It's just nostalgia brother, 2 strokes will never be as reliable as modern 4t bikes. Plus, if you weigh anything more than 60kgs, you will never have the potential of fun on the bike, as 2 strokes seriously lack torque. These days 2 stroke spares are rare and expensive, that's another issue.

    1. Why everyone out there is asking for good mechanic for their repairs and restorations, why not Yamaha service centres. Don't they do it?
    2. What all does it take to make a Rx 100 functionally new and reliable from scratch.. just functionally for now. (mainly engine stuff).
    Thank you😊!
    Service centre guys are trained in newer bikes, there are very few old mechs in service centres who know how to fix 2 strokes, you have to understand, it's been 15-16 years since 2 strokes were discontinued. Diagnosis of a 2 stroke takes experience.

    You can start by boring the block to the next os. Make sure the block isn't sleeved. A sleeved block is useless. Put a good connecting rod, put in good main bearings. Replace the clutch assy, or fix it, depends on condition, at very least change the plates. Make sure the oil pump are carburettor are 100% functional. Go for new reeds, clean the head to a mirror finish, polish the ports.

    Is block and piston and cylinder kit the same thing? If so then I think changing the cylinder kit is better as goetze cylinder kit is available for around 4k. Because I have heard that new cylinder kits last longer than rebored engines . Please clarify more on this.

    Also by reeds, do you mean valves? Yes I am a noobie. 😄 What do think should this whole job cost? New cylinder kit and the jobs mentioned by you.

    Exclamation Re: Random Questions regarding the RX series

    hello guys ,
    after a lot of time and effort i managed to get some upgrades for 1995 model Yamaha RX100 , and the mods i got are :
    1. RXK cylinder kit (cylinder , head , piston)
    2. RX 135 crank
    3. RXK connecting rod
    4. RXK carb
    5. RXK cdi
    6. RX 135 reed valves

    i have added these original yamaha rx king and rx 135 parts and now i cant seem to get the tuning right. At first was the initial , when i shift to 1st gear and release clutch there was missing 9 like no petrol supply) then i re-tuned , now the initial seems fine but top end there is a lot of missing . what can be the issue ?
