Rajdoot RD350 - Mechanical improvements

As my recent visit to the mechanic garaged proved that my rear swing arm bushes and front wheel bearings were worn out, I decided to change them for better stability and ride quality of my bike.

Luckily this time the parts required are easily available ones, hence purchase became just easy.
Along with today's purchase of the above items I myself found glad suddenly as to grab a pair of Rajdoot RD350 timing case License Yamaha plate. Yaaahooo one more body detailing will be corrected on my Savager.

Yamaha RD350 back to home

Its been 2 months since I left the bike at my old mechanic Pattabi's workshop. I'm not sure, if my evaluation is correct about Pattabi as he was the one who restored my bike to perfect condition. By I always had second thoughts about his trouble shooting and performance tuning knowledge.

This has been proved in the recent incident as my bike had issues with the newly installed CDI kit and pattabi couldn't fix it for about 2 months. He kept saying that the kit had some problems and needs replacement. Hence another tuner helped me fixing the CDI kit which had actually no issues and only the configuration problem.

Now the bike is back to its feet and along with that now the Bike runs with a brand new NGK performance spark plugs and brand new battery.
Ok, guys listen very soon my bike is going to wear the Yamaha RD350 fairing, I got a person who can replicate the original like fairing for me.
Just looked at his previous work and amazed. So my order for the similar fairing has been already on queue.

Rajdoot RD350B - Performance tuning kits

I'm going to really learn and tune my bike to better performance. After all RD350 is a famous performance bike for the world. Before I get into any tuning work, I'm going to build my own tuning kit collection. The first and for most thing are set of wrench, spheres, screw drivers, pliers and measurement tools.

When talking about measurement tools I need to have minimum of compression testing meter, Dial gauge, feeler gauge and a multimeter to test the electrical components. I have already got a multimeter and recently purchased a cylinder compression tester.
The usage of various instruments in here will be explained in various stages of my performance tuning phases.
