    Icon10 RESTORING YAMAHA RXZ 5 Speed (converted),model year 2000

    I am writing this log about my experiences and expenses incurred in restoration Yamaha RXZ 2000 model 4 speed converted to 5 speed, I picked this bike from a good friend of mine and continued his project, Bike color per RC is blue and I have keep it same ,
    Bike is stock with no mods, only exception is a 19 inch rim and a 19 inch rear tire,
    Parts availability was not much of a hassle available but for few i had to settle for non OEM,
    I insisted on OEM make for most parts ,I am based in Hyderabad (Telangana) and we have abundance of painters promising sky high results but so far results are just good ,
    Restoration started on 25th July, and due to rains the paint part got delayed till August 7th
    The first step I took was to get the RC renewed, transferred to my name and fitness done, cost RS 3500,
    The twist to this matter is that the RC came back transferred to my name ,fitness extended for 5 years but with few typos , the make was set to RX 100 instead of RXZ , the CC was set to 98 instead of 132 cc , and color has INA (information not available) instead of blue ,now I resent the new RC back to the agent to get corrections done , cost of mistake rectification unknown ,it could be between 1000 1500 or more , so bottom line RS-5000+ for getting RC perfect ,
    Expenses break up attached, I reckon I will touch RS 25,000+ by the time the bike is ready,
    There is still lot of work pending , the bike is back from frame painting , black color , few parts are painted matt black and the engine silver color ,Mech will start assembling bike on Monday 15th August 2016 ,the bike should be ready by 31st August , post which I plan to sell it ,
