Thanks guys!

What kind of fenders/side panels did you get and where? Did you replace any of the bolts for the fenders/side panels and where did you get them.
The front and rear fenders are OE Honda that I had lying around the shop.
The shrouds, side panels and fork guards are from UFO (the only company
still making them in the correct '93 color). You can get them from Moto
sport Outlet, Dennis Kirk and Chaparral. I don't think there are any stock
bolts on the bike. All the plastic is mounted with either Ti or Aluminum
bolts. You can get them from Mettec.

I was wondering if you would share your jetting specs with us and can you tell us what you think of the PWK vs. the PJ?
The carb is indeed a '00 model. The jetting is a 172 main, stock pilot, stock
needle with the clip in the second position and the airscrew 1 1/2 turns.
The jetting has been right on the money for my application and weather
conditions (sea level, hot and humid). I have been running an NGK BR8EV
or R6918B-7 sparkplug and the plug chops reveal a nice uniform tan color.
The bike starts easily (1st or 2nd kick), and carburets cleanly from idle to
the top. IMO, the PWK is the carburetor this bike should have had to begin
with, superior to the PJ in every way.

Dang... that's some amazing work you did! You'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between that bike and a brand new off the showroom floor bike.

I saw a hammered 96 CR250R for $250 the other day and was very tempted. But I still need to finish up my project. Money has halted it for now.

Dogger when you say "stock needle" is that the stock needle for 93' or 00'?

The '96 sounds intriguing, but be careful about picking up a bike that is
too clapped out. I did that with a '73 and ended up having to replace
nearly every part (at great cost). If you're still interested in doing a
steelie, that '96 may provide a good parts source. I know what you
mean about the funding. I'm tapped out right now as well. I am mid
way into the CR500 engine build for my AF and am also working on a
100cc MXer for the Marty Tripes Revenge series. I want to build a trick
Hodaka model 98 Super Rat ('77), or maybe a sleeved down '78 Honda
CR125. Either will be big bucks and big fun.

It's the goofy boutique needle from the '00. Works perfectly.

Yeah, It was basically a total junker 96'. You know the ones that have bent up rads and it wouldn't run. It would of been a good starter.

100cc MXer for the Marty Tripes Revenge series. That sounds like a fun bike to ride! Im thinking my project will pick up here soon as I get some extra cash, like some grant $ from school. Its so close to being done it is painful to see it sit out in the garage.

I do want to do a steelie. Hey did you catch the race yesterday>? The Millville race. K-Dub picked up Millsaps ride and got a holeshot, and led for about 16 min ahead of Dungey. It was amazing to watch. K-Dub looked faster on the Red Bull Honda than on his Geico bike.Pretty good for a vet who has not raced in a while!

That one is still in the planning stage. I'm leaning toward building a '76-'78
CR125 sleeved down to 100cc. I think the Honda will be more reliable since
the rest of the engine and bike is designed around the power of a 125. I'm
thinking reinforced frame, RC125 swingarm, Ohlins shocks, Simmons forks,
Dirtstar or Excel rims on '84 hubs (better brakes), 520 chain conversion,
and a severely hopped-up engine. Should be a pint sized rocket.

Missed the race, but not surprised about Windham. When he's on, he's
incredibly fast.
