The poll have shown that Malaysian prefers Yamaha RX-Z more than 125Z, but LC135 is now the second choice after RX-Z. The least bike preferred is FZ-150i, this may due to the design of the bike that is not compelling and futuristic enough like the rest.

Keep voting for the new poll! Look for it at the right sidebar.

Yamaha 125ZR 2007 Sticker Design

The current design of Yamaha 125ZR since 2007. The design of the bike is nice, simple and macho enough. It was debut in 1999 with the first generation of 125Z and later followed up with 125ZR, which better and meaner.

At that time, there is no bike in the category that can compete with the bike. It was the era of Suzuki Best, Suzuki RG Sports, Yamaha SS, SS Two and Kawasaki K1, but none of the bike make a very deep impact like 125Z does. 125Z makes every other bike in the category seems like child plays. The technology offered by 125Z is far superior than what the people were thinking at that time and Yamaha was ahead in others in thinking of future of underbone bike.

I like this bike not because I want to rem pit, but I like what this bike has to offer.
You see, this is the only bike in the category that have monoshock suspension, front and rear disc brake, 6-speed gear, futuristic design and affordable!

Also, this bike is really fast. In standard condition, it can go up to 160km/h, tune the exhaust a bit, it’ll go up to 180km/h, tune it a little bit more, then you can’t measure the speed anymore since the meter is maxed at 180km/h!
I have heard that this bike can be tune to get 180 km/h just in the fourth gear.

Safety will become a thing to think here. Enjoy the speed only in the track. Not in public highway. Drive safely and be smart!

Yamaha RX-Z Rear Disc Brake Modification Spotted!

I spotted this on YouTube. The modification of this RX-Z really amazes me because it have rear disc brake, but not an ordinary disc brake, this one is installed on the left side of the bike where sprocket and drive chain is also installed!
Wow, I was just thinking to change my RX-Z rear disc brake using 125Z brake, but then, it can be installed on the right side like original brake placement for 125Z.
So, how can this be possible to install rear disc brake on the left side of the RX-Z?
Tell me us how in the comments box.

UPDATE: Rear disc brake modification for Honda EX5. Maybe you can use the idea from here and transferred it to your RX-Z project.
