    That visor is available in MY/ID I guess. Will see if I could get my hands on it.
    I was referring to the first pic where the rear mudguard looks higher than a stock bike, maybe the shock height is not in its softest settings.

    I have seen a lot of RXZ especially from TN on olx with MY/ID rxz visors, maybe talk to someone and find out their source?

    Update:-

    Bike odo reads 180 kms

    Fixed the front brakes. Took some efforts to go down to the caliper where there was some air block. Had to pump the Piston to get the air out at reservoir.

    Battery fuse is now installed. Horn and rear indicators work.

    Headlight socket was off the harness and now it's fixed. So can ride in the dark.

    Still front console lights and brake lights are pending. Switch looks to be good but it's always lights. Could be neutral, don't know how bad it's messed up.

    Accelerator grip is now baked in heat I guess, when I twist, it doesn't actuate throttle wire but moves over the throttle body as if some oil between the surface. Need to check and replace.

    Silencer tube changed to the one which came in the bike. Dirty and soiled. After putting in, it gives a mellowed low beat with some treble. Hope it sets in good by the time I run-in.

    Pending works:-

    Electricals
    Butterfly crash guard
    Seat assembly
    Good round of wash and polish.

    I'd suggest wrapping the grip so that the Heat from this insane summer won't melt it lol.My Max 100R has Leather wrap on both the grips.But I tightened both the switchgear consoles,both left and right so badly that I ended up rounding off the screws so they sit tightly now.Hope it helps!

    I will buy another one and put it up. There are some things which has a signature styling when it comes to RX, that starts with thin ribbed grips.

    hey Sriram,

    Are you doing the wiring yourself? There is an easy way to test neutral, You need to turn the ignition on and remove the wire from the neutral switch, connect this wire to any metal part and if it glows then the neutral switch is gone kaput. if it doesn't glow then you need to check if the supply is coming to this bulb.

    I will be glad to support you if need be.

    Regards,
    Pramod

    Thanks Pramod. I will try doing this weekend. As far as I remember it's maze of wires stacked up in to puny headlight doom. Though it may not be a big deal but definitely it is a mess.

    Its actually pretty simple, There are 3 straightforward connectors. rest are to be color matched. Now your base vehicle is an RX 100, the wiring for the pilot lamp is that of an rxz, in simple terms you need to modify the wiring a bit so that the indicator signal works in the pilot lamp when you use both left and right indicators. rest connectors are straightforward.

    Here is a link to a video that helps in connecting the wiring

    Here is a video on how the neutral light needs to be troubleshot

    Here is a video on fixing the ground connection

    Feel free to reach out if you need any further help.
