I have the installation instructions and specifications for the wide ratio transmission. I know a lot of people are curious about these transmissions since they haven't even been produced for almost a decade. Any technical information about them is very hard to come by. If you need any specific information, make a post and I will make a post or send you a pm with the information. Btw, the recommended oil is GL3 and specifies no GL-4. I had intended to use Rotella synthetic like I run in my GasGas EC 300. Any thoughts?

I used some degeaser mixed with water, a razor blade with a razor blade holder and steel wool. Most of the razor blade work was done very lightly to not damage the plastic and just remove the graphics glue and surface grime. I was surprised that it turned out that well.

My airbox came out very well but I am having trouble removing the yellow spots from the tank. The razor blade works well at removing the general yellow buildup on the tank, but it does not remove the yellow spots which came from the holes in the old graphics. I have switched to an electric sander and it is not improvement. Is it likely that the single yellow spots have permeated all the way through the plastic to the inside of the tank?

Those yellow spots are actually fuel vapors that have found their way through the plastic from inside the tank. It's doubtful you'll ever be able to get them fully cleaned up as the plastic is now stained by them.

That's what I thought. I am probably going to go with a new IMS tank.

If that's the case it won't hurt to give it a hit with SOS pads. (Steel Wool soap pads).

I hit it with steel wool pads already, those spots seem to permeate all the way through the plastic.

Update. The restoration is still continuing. I am still waiting on some parts to arrive. I'm looking for a cheap set of yz or yzf titanium pegs to bolt on the CR.

Well the build is moving along again. I just got the frame, swingarm and clutch side covers back from powdercoating.
New brake MC mounted up,


Before you ask, No, that sexy weedeater leaning against the garage wall ain't for sale.

Last night, I installed the new steering head bearings with the triple clamps. I am using the 95 triple clamps which are 5mm wider, I guess to deter headshake. Note, the 95 step is about 10-15 mm longer than the 94 step.(my 94 bottom triple clamp had a steering stop broken off).Yesterday, I bought new oem crankcases and I already bought a new oem 96 cylinder. I also installed new bearings in the swingarm and suspension link. Does anyone know where I buy a new 92-96 oem head?

Since the weed eater isn't for sale, how much for the plunger?

The frame turned out nice. Your powder coater did a good job of matching
the Shasta White. He also did a great job matching the Silver on the
clutch cover.

Honda added the wider triples due to feedback from the team riders. The
goal was to design out as much flex coming from unsprung weight as
possible. This program was started after the 92 CRs were released. It
turned out that in an effort to pare weight, the engineers went a bit over
board and some changes had to be made for handling and reliability.

The wider clamps were to accomodate a wider hub and thus a stronger wheel.
You won't get any head shake relief, that's all a function of steering geometry.
The worst head shakers were the 92 and 93 (steepest steering angle), which
is why the team bikes all sported the now famous steering stabilizers hidden
behind the front number plate. FWIW, if I was building a steelie to ride and
race and was not concerned about keeping the bike original, I would
incorporate the steering stabilizer from a CRF. It's an easy mod requiring
only a mounting boss welded on the steering tube and another on the bottom
triple clamp.

Look forward to more updates.

Lol, that's a nice USA made plunger so I think I will need to hold onto it. Thanks for the info on the stabilizer. I will race this bike in hare scrambles so I think I am going to go with a GPR stabilizer. I was very happy with the job by the powder coater, his name is Ed Steidle, his phone number is 321-437-4146and his webpage is, Home Page. He is located in Orlando, Florida. Dogger, he actually pulled up the photos of your bike when he did the color match. He is a full blown moto head and a super nice guy. I was very surprised that the clutch cover came out so nice.

I have a question for anyone that knows. I have a new oem 96 cylinder but I can't find a new 92-96 new head. If I run a new 2001 head with the 96 cylinder using a wossner flat top B piston will this effect the peak power and spread of power on the 96 cylinder? Also, because the 2001 head's spark plug hole is not angled will this cause any clearance problems with the steel frame or tank?

Sorry for the delayed update. I had a freak problem uploading images to photobucket.

Here is my new left crankcase, still in the factory box and wrapping. The new right crankcase should arrive by Monday. Btw, I knew that the new Honda cases came with the crank main bearings, but I didn't know that all the other bearings are installed as well. That's right, countershaft,main shaft and shift drum bearings already installed.

The right side crankcase just arrived, it has all the bearings already installed as well.


[/COLOR]While I am waiting on some parts, I took a look at the PWJ and it looks like the carb sucked in a lot of dirt at some point, the slide was heavily scratched up. Also, the pin holding the float in place was extremely sloppy and would fall out if the carb was held at an angle. I did a disassembly and soaked the carb overnight in a Berryman can. After the soak the inside looked better, but I am not happy with it, I think I will buy a new PWK AS II.


It was difficult see how bad the card was scratched inside.

After quick overnight soak and reassembly,

Don't muck around. Get a Lectron.
The fuel economy is so much better, it'll actually pay for itself eventually.
