LOL, you are right...but it is a cross country racer. I might buy a stock sized tank for shorter rides.

I will post some pictures when WER sends the forks back to me. I just got the backgrounds and numbers from Decal Works. I put them on last night.

I made some progress this weekend. I got the bolts and axles back from the cad plating company.


I also received my truing stand which worked great. I just need to hit the wheels with a torque wrench and I can install the Galfer roots, tubliss inserts and the tires.
[I also installed the swingarm and pressed in the last bearings for the suspension link using this new Motion Pro Suspension Service tool.

I also got the radiators back from Myles and I installed them as well.


The steering stem nut and washer were cad plated along with the engine mount bolts.

I also sealed up the air filter cage with some 3M adhesive.


I also got my Honda complete gasket kit.

Yea, but it is actually coming together very quickly now.

Default Ring End Gap 96 CR250 B Cylinder

Does anyone know the what the ring end gap should be for a Wossner B Piston into a new 96 CR250 B cylinder? I just did the top end of my GG 300 a while back and I think that the ring end gap was around .04mm or .05mm.

I just got some used radiator louvers and I am letting them soak in degreaser.
Here is the new shifter that just came in the mail.



these are some Progrip Rally Grips


I just mounted up this YZF brake pedal and it fits well. There are some clearance issues with the Yamaha bolt and the swingarm, the bolt clears but I may cut it back a bit with a dremel.
I already ordered Yamaha u connecter for the rear cylinder, that part of the YZF brake pedal is a little wider. I could bend the CR part but I though I would try YZF part first. It should be here in a few days and I will post an update. Btw, those are titanium YZ 250 foot pegs with Yamaha pins and springs.

I just got my suspension back from Works Enduro Rider and I bolted it on last night. I will post some picture tonight. The forks and shock were both hard anodized in black with complete revalve/rebuild.[COLOR="Red"]


New oem caps on the swingarm and new brake line guides with cad plated bolts. The swingarm was powdercoated in silver.


I am very happy with the Decal Works Backgrounds

I just installed a Honda oem tank mount strap. I am not really sure that I mounted it correctly,what does everyone think?

Hey Motman7,

Try this trick, I got it from one of the guy's over at Cafe Husky!

He said that it really works, & only it's about $4.00

Nice work man! Really liking this build. I've been planning an update to my 94 that is my trail bike. That IMS tranny was a sweet find! I was just looking at the YZF brake pedal the other day thinking I could probably get it to fit. Thanks for posting the pics of that. Where did you find that disc cover? I've got a white one on my bike but its days are numbered. Keep the detailed updates coming. I'd love to know how that suspension feels once you get some time on it. I'm actually pretty happy with the stock valving for most trails, it doesn't like big whoops or jumps much though.

Thanks very much! I got the disc cover off that big auction site, I think it came from Everett Powersports in Washington but I have to check.

Thanks for confirming that for me!

That is a great tip, I might use it on the stock tank. The tank on the bike is a brand new IMS translucent tank which IMS just mfg for me in January. All the translucent tanks look yellowish, that tank has never had gas or any other fluid in it, its brand new.

I finished the rims, installed Tubliss inserts on the front and rear wheels with new metzeler tires. I got it off the stand and sat on it for the first time in 18 months!

I installed a Braking Wave rotor on the front and a EBC vented rotor on the rear. I bled the front brake and it works well. I installed a Domino throttle with a nos CR throttle cover.


I installed the 2014 YZ450 F rear brake pedal, the stock Honda clevis with the stock Honda pin will work but you have to bend the clevis a little. I had a new YZF clevis but it won't fit the Honda master cylinder bc it's a smaller thread size on the YZF clevis. The YZF brake mount bolt clears the swingarm buts it's a little close.

What made you decide to try a YZF brake pedal?

I saw a note by somebody on a forum that they had read a facebook where someone mentioned that had mounted a yz450f brake pedal to a steel frame Honda. There weren't any details about the installation. I decided to try it and it does bolt right up. My stock brake was ok but still very hammered so this was a good swap.

Very nice!

i'm also interested in buying a domino throttle assy, does it bolt on right up using the stock rubber cover and the stock throttle cable?

Thanks
