What is the stock poundage on the '93 CR250 Anyway?
1.1 That's all you need unless the engine has been modified enough
to create a lot more heat.

Is there a direct automotive replacement/equivalent
No.

Both of those bikes look good. Both saved from the scrap yard and
brought back to be ridden/raced again. One in traditional Honda Red
and one in traditional Kawasaki Green. Nice work. Variety is the spice
of life.

I dont have an exact figure on your year, but my factory manual for my 88 and my factory manual for the 2000 are about a half poud off. the 2000 which is essentially your engine doesnt say what stock is but has the range from 16 to 20 lbs. When we got my son's 2000 it was 2001 and his boiled on some slow rides, it tested way less than 16. I use to have the napa part number that got it up to something just over 1.5 kg/sq cm. It is pretty much standard hardware. I dont remember how many lbs that was exactly, but it was over 20. With decent hoses it isn't a problem. No boiling occured after that.

I would test what you have, and try it for your kind of riding, but if you do some slow stuff, the higher pressure cap can save your engine.

Well to day I finalized my order with Throttle Jockey. I'm getting the 95 Team Honda / 1-800-collect graphics kit along with the gripper seat cover. In the end I decided to go with my name on the tank and the number "21" - This was done just to sort of personalize it a bit. As much as I'd like to do a really nice Mac bike... I'm sure I wouldn't do it any justice as my budget is pretty limited and I plan on riding the bike a lot

Other points of interest :

Secured a set of '99 CR250 forks and triples along with the complete rear brake assembly and some other items.

I've also secured a good used white tank off of a '95 250,... we'll see how it cleans up (I figured I couldn't go wrong for 25 bucks )

I should be ordering all the plastic for the bike here in the next week or so - Probable just do all UFO stuff except for the number plater - snagged a Plasticwerks one for that

Other than that just putting together a good plan of attack on doing the frame, swing arm, and engine exterior...

Until the next installment ....

Ah, good thing you kept it clean.

Others might have said "my wife"

I feel your pain, once I had let the 450 go, not having a bike to ride while fixing the other kills me. It leads to a lot more 'quick fixes'

Ok guys,... a bit of a progress report if you will... (Pics to follow probably this coming weekend...)

The Graphics, seat cover, PlasticWorks Number plate, and backgrounds/numbers arrived today ... very cool looking stuff - Special thanks to Chris @ Throttle Jockey!!! you guys are AWESOME!

I ended up personalizing the bike a bit, I went with my name on the tank, and my number "21" Hopefully it won't look too hokey when it's all done

I placed an order though Motosport.com this evening for all of my replacement plastic for this project

Flor Red Front Fender
White Rear Fender
White Side panels
Black Rad. Shrouds
White Mud Flap.

I'm holding off on the front Fork and Disk guards to see what forks/wheel/caliper/Rotor I end up with... most likely a '99 front end though.

Here's a list of parts I have "on the way" - This was posted in another thread but really belongs here:



Stuff from '99 CR250:

Nice set of Forks and Freshly powdercoated Triples with all new bearings and everything. Rebuild and freshly powdercoated front and rear calipers w/all brackets and hardware, and front Master Cylinder (All that for 150.00)

Stuff from a '95 CR250:

Front wheel complete with Axle, spacers and everything, Complete Triple Clamps, Rear Hub w/axle, and a good shape White Gas Tank - all for 100 bucks.

So essentially my 18" wheel will accept the larger rotor,.. that's cool

I'm wondering about the removal of material from the caliper mounting slot on the swingarm,.. how much needs to be removed on that?.. anyone know? Seems like it wouldn't be a lot? (Plus wondering if my swing arm/ rear brake assembly adds any other twist to to this mod as most of my findings have been about modding the 95/96 model CR250,.. and nothing in regards to the '93 specifically (Don't know if there are any differences between the years in the rear other than the different sized wheels (?)

Here's some pics of the stuff from the '99 bike:








There are still a lot of smaller items that I'm sure I'll need along the ,... but for now I think I have the bulk of everything I need to get started,... I for sure have enough stuff now that I'm "Committed" to the project!!

Thanks again,.. and pics will follow

Rick

I can't believe it's been almost 5 years since I've posted about this ... WOW! Time FLYS!

Well some good and some bad news I guess...

The Good: I still have the bike and it's been running better than ever!

The Bad: I still haven't moved forward much on my Mac bike project - BUT...


So fast-forwarding 5 years ( ) ... I took the bike on a week long "Riding Vacation" down at Cloud 9 Ranch in Caufield Mo. over 4th of July weekend, and the bike performed flawlessly to say the least..

I did pick up a 2008 CRF450R a few months back as I was wanting to get back to my 4T roots a bit... still dialing that thing in for the woods, but it's a beast for sure

We went on a ride to "Flat River" (St Joe State Park) in Mo. earlier this week and we took the '93 as a "Back up" bike... well we ended up needing it as my Brother WR400 kept having carb/running issues...

Well he'd never ridden a pinger before so I was giving him the what not and everything - he rode it around the parking lot and out in some open areas to get the feel for it.... after a little while out in the woods he was feeling pretty cocky and I was letting him lead through the trails ....it's very cool to watch your bike in action while someone else is riding it! Well there was a small jump in the trail and when he landed he inadvertently blipped the throttle a bit which made the bike surge forward (He was in 3rd gear)... that made him slide back twisting the throttle back WFO... the bike went into launch mode and he crashed it big time haha! .... He was banged up pretty good, and the bike suffered a shattered gas tank, pretzled out bars, and bent foot peg... other than that just some plastic damage...

But with me having the 08 to ride now, I can focus on getting the 93 project back on track...
