    YAMAHA RX135 - 4 Speed price

    Don't want to initiate a new thread so posting here.

    I am about to finalize a deal for YAMAHA RX135 - 4 Speed.
    Model: 2002
    Registered- Jaipur
    km- 27000
    Maintained- Good

    The seller is good friend of mine so we both are shy to discuss price
    My mechanic says anything between 8-12 thousand should be OK.
    What should be decent price for this ?

    "unless its done completely to company spec" i mentioned that.. And if you go in for blueprinting the engine.. you will obviously come out with more output than a normal engine.

    dont think thats true.... i have seen many rebuilds making more power ...end of the day it comes down to how the engine is assembled

    At Thread: RX135 FTW !

    ^^ the only difference was that the initial batch parts came from japan or alternate sources from abroad. Hence the build quality and durability was better..

    Parts are available, and bore kits are available with dealers. OEM parts, no issues.

    @2strokey - the malaysian bores look vastly different in finish compared to the indian bore. Though everything else is same. Im trying to get my hands on a kit from there to compare and install and use.

    Thx a ton bro, that clears 70% of my confusion. Only thing am worried abt is the bore/piston kit. if its F%$^$& then mech's out here say its around 8k for a new one. And most of my friends ask me to go for a jap made rx100 saying it has more power. Else get a indian made one and source a jap made bore/piston kit.

    honestly i dont think there should be any difference in its performance whether its a indian or jap made. may be the life differs.

    is this ture? and how hard is it to get a new bore/piston kit? A reliable one?
    Bro,
    Seriously get an RX-100 for yourself, if U can lay your hands on jap model you will never in your life regret that!! RX-135 somewhat doesnt go well in my brain, although its a very good machine but always secondary to RX-100!.

    About the bores & parts they are available on condition you do a good hunting job you might get them in second hand market like chor bazaar or kurla CST road, Yamaha has stopped production of 2 Stroke Parts (Heart Breaking News) there are a few guys in the market selling bores which they claim are from malaysia for RXZ & RX-100 I have had a look at it & I found the Petrol intake too too big & also it looks pretty rough. I wont be one bit surprised if it is coming manufactured from Delhi & guys are just bluffing abt Malaysia.

    JD,
    Nice Meeting you that day bro,

    have you had a chance to look at tht sort of Bore? in the Market??
