Added reply in a thread Removing flywheel weight 7/6/2015 10:05 PM

I run FWW on all my 2 smokes. Even my 125. Extends the powerband on top, keeps it from running through the power which results in more shifting, and keeps it from stalling too easy going into tight turns. JMO

86 & 87 are very good year's for CRs. If it looks as good in person, 2k is reasonable. Stickers may be hiding bad plastic, but they come off.

He raised the bar. Period. He gave us some amazing racing all those years. Racing has been better for it. And by the way, I broke my tailbone when I was 13, it took about a year to not have it bother me. And you know how fast kids that age heal

Added reply in a thread 1975. Suzuki Rm125 pipe ? 7/1/2015 11:34 PM

I had a RM125M also. It was a huge jump from all the old bikes of that era. I ended up putting a FMF up pipe on it. The 76 model pipe. It fit pretty easy considering it was for the 76. It really helped wake it up. Good memories. Yes, that looks like ... more »

What ever you do, rebuild the 04. The 01 was down on power, etc. So many internal differences, you will be unhappy when you see and feel the differences.

Bridgestone 403/404 intermediates. They wear well, and seem to work across the board on different terrain types.

Now, the question is, are you going to ride it or is it going into a collection?

I think it was the Yamaha the had the roost boost. The 87 CR is very desirable. The post has been deleted already. Gone!

Man, I'd go for it. They were actually a good bike in their day. People bad mouth the Sachs/Zundapps, but I had fun on them. What did you have to give for it. I'd try to restore it, myself.

Added reply in a thread Spray painting rims 6/12/2015 11:04 PM

Remember, Wheels flex. If the paint does not, guess what. It flakes off and looks like crap. Sound like a bad idea, to me. Also, consider tire scrub. JMO.

When I take out somebody new that I have not ridden with, I like to warm up with a "Hare Scrambles" loop that includes through the hills, up and down. It prepares you for reading lines and terrain, brake and throttle control, etc. It seems most average ... more »

It's worth fixing. It's one of the better AF L.p. Honda 250's.

I run wiseco for the last 40 year's (yes I'm old) never had any problems as long as you measure things. You gotta order the right parts though.

Added reply in a thread Is it worth it? 6/3/2015 3:01 PM

You should have bought it, even if just for the engine. They are great for a conversion bike. I have an 87 CR500, thinking about dropping it into a late model RM chassis. The 500's are a blast.

Direct Injection would put the price point at the same as a fourstroke race bike. And the complexity along with fuel tank and pump redesign, etc. You get the picture.
