The build is moving along. I ordered a suzuki oem top steering stem bearing so that is sorted.

I saw this listed on another forum without much detail so I though I would see if it would work because the stock 84 footpegs are very narrow. So, I pulled my frame out of my shipping box so I could drill out the peg mount holes before having the frame powder coated.

These are the stock pegs.



These are the 98 RM 250 pegs with pins and springs.



The pins are bigger on the 98 so you have to drill out the holes on the frame to 9.5mm which is a 3/8 inch drill bit. I used carbide bit and a Milwaukee hammer drill at super slow speed. You have to maintain pressure on the drill but barely rotate the bit, as long as you are getting long chunks of metal you are doing fine but if you are just getting metal dust, you are going too fast and you will ruin the bit.

It took me about 6 minutes per each peg mount. Afterwards, the pins fit perfectly.





Pegs bolted right up but I did have to file the brake side a little to clear a frame weld.

Big stuff is still at the powdercoaters. I just cleaned up some stuff to have it cad plated.

Here is the stuff after cleanup waiting to be cad plated.


It took a while to get off all the rust




I had to use a mini sledge to get the rear axle out. I thought it was impossible to clean up the threads. I bought a Snap On Thread Chaser RD7-18 which is a M16-1.50 thread pitch. It worked!

Btw, I bought a small drill press and mounted it on the workbench last night.









It has a laser....
