Do the 125 first, then a 500 so you have the trio

Look forward to seeing progress photos of the build Sponge!

Yea! I just got off the phone with Millenium Tech,...turns out they can fix that head up nice for around $80. Plus glass bead the exterior so it matches the new cylinder better,... Will have more pics in a couple weeks.....

Glass beading a motor is fine if you don't plan to run it in dirt. Dirt will get in the pores super easy and make it look like crap and be impossible to keep looking good.

VHT silver caliper paint leaves it looking like new but prepping it with glass bead is not what's been recommended to me. Just clean the surface and maybe rough it up slighty for good adhesion. The only thing that sucks about VHT is you need to bake the parts in the oven at 200F for an hour. I had to do some voodoo tricks to get a whole motor in the oven!

OK thats a thought,....any further thoughts on sprucing up the aged look of the top of the cylinder head? I figured glass bead was the common technique for this just based on reading.

Sean's talking about the anodized bits like the center cases and Right side
case cover. If you glass bead blast those, you'll strip the anodization and
open up the castings for staining. Honda paints the Right side case cover
and if you are running a Black engine, the center cases as well. Glass bead
is best for cleaning up the cylinder and cylinder head which are bare castings
to start with.

If you want to run the newer Silver look and need to clean up your center cases,
try soda or an ultrasonic parts washer. I have a powder match for the Right
side case cover if you're interested.

No No,...im keeping it as it was. I already have the black hi temp paint for the cases. Though I may shop around for the covers in a different look ,..ideally this... though this is for a 250 Service Honda Clutch Cover 02 06 CR250 | eBay



Earlier i was speaking on just the Cylinder head. The cylinder will be brand new so i dont want some pristine cylinder and gunky cylinder head.
