Default Re: Project CR250....again

Today was crazy! I was torqing the bolts for the rear brake master cylinder (22 ft LBS) on the CRF and it snapped....I lost it, cursed till I was blue in the face, kicked anything and everything in the shed and launched a few screwdrivers accross the yard...its an Irish temper thing. After a 1,2,3 calm down session I got the bolt out and replaced it. After putting the rear brake pedal back on I noticed the rear brakes we spongy. Bled em with new fluid and everything is cool now. After getting the rest of the CRF back together I saw a little seal laying on the floor....What the hell....I had to look at some breakdowns on the interent for an hour and figured out that it came out of the rear brake pedal. Lets just say I had a rare day full of frustation. In the end the bikes were both broken down, greased, lube, adjusted, inspected and cleaned:suspension, carbs, head bearings, cables...the works!!!

A friend of ours offered to help me split the cases and change the gearing on 4th and 5th (wide ratio). In the process we will be replacin seals, bearings and crank. along the way..wooo hooo! This will be the first case splitting experience for me...

I will be taking the rear wheel to Chris' shop on tue to replace the rear wheel bearings and to order the rear wheel spacers...he doesn't know it yet but I guess he does now!! I want to thank Chris and everyone from ATM for helping me...Thank you!!!!

Well, its not quite finished yet but I'll try and get some updated pictures tonight. I got the tank on a few weeks ago. The tank is rather large(3.7) but this really isn't a bad thing. It feels more like the XR so its not too bad and is very familar to me. I got everything dialed in and adjusted last weekend (shifter moved up, levers moved down, suspension adjustments and handlebars swept farther forward) and did a 30 mile loop. Everything felt great besides my right hand. I'm just waiting for the holidays to pass and then I will be getting the steering dampner (scotts) and a few other misc items on. Right now I'm trying to figure out whats is going on with my rear brakes: it makes an awful noise if you spin the wheel backwards. I pretty sure its not a huge deal but it really is annoying. anyways, i'll post some more on the bike as the parts come in. see ya

-Kevin-

what I'm waiting on:

steering damper
IMS rear brake gaurd (backordered)
Spoke set (front and rear)
handgaurds

I have not heard about shark attacks for a long time. Or maybe I missed anything? I am from England https://postcodefinder.net/england/brighton. The last thing I remember was some incident in the Egypt resorts where some tourists suffered. Who knows about recent cases around the world. Please share here similar articles for everyone to read. It is really interesting.

What do sharks have to do with dirt bikes?
