Harry, an F-18 is a supersonic aircraft, there is no known drone / UCAV that is supersonic, all subsonic. Even the new XB-47A. The only drone that was supersonic was launched off of the SR-71 and later, B-52, I believe it's the D-12. A clean F-18 is

The difference between the older bearing and the newer one is 0.080. Just enough to be a pain in the ass. I guess I'll ride the older modified wheel and watch for any cracks. If so, I'll get a later model wheel for it. I'm only out $10.00 for the bearings ... more »

I'll measure the two and find the difference. It seemed to be a fair amount of material, but I don't think it will be a strength problem. The brake side spacer needed about 1/4" or so. The other side was totally a one off since the newer wheel / fork ... more »

I finished the wheel install, and got the brake caliper to work without changing anything. It was a matter of centering the wheel and moving it so the caliper would line up close enough. I had to make custome spacers and such. The bearing seals on the

Well, the bearings came in and it's a FAIL. The bearings for the 95-07 is larger OD as well as for the ID. I've machined out the hub on the disk side, installed the bearing, and using the OEM spacer, the caliper won't line up. So somethings different ... more »

My understanding, is the 97 CR125 forks were the 1st year to go to the 46mm KYB. It is the very same fork as the 96 CR250. So anything used on the 96 - 250 will work on the 97 125. In 98, that was the first year of the AF125, so everything changed. I've ... more »

We'll know tomorrow, USPS did not deliver the bearings today, said tomorrow. If they fit, then you would be correct. What was the part number and supplier of your EBC brake kit. I can't seem to find the 4 bolt rotor kit so far. The 4 bolt rotor is used ... more »

Last night I ordered the 95-07 front wheel bearing kit so I'll find out on Fri, that's when it should be here. Did you use the stock size rotor when you put the wave rotor on, or did you go oversize. I'm spoiled, I have a Braking 260mm on my RM, it's

I think it's personal preference, I have gold rims on my 87 CR500 and on my 02 RM125, I would not have it any other way. The silver wheels always looks stock, the Black rim fad, I think black looks worn out as soon as you ride them. I guess if you are

I'm almost done with my fork swap. I just have to solve my front wheel issue. Do you know if the front wheel bearing can be changed to the larger axle size? I'm trying to use what I have and not shop for a wheel. A post 95 hub costs as much as a complete ... more »

If I had it to do over on my RM, I would send the motor to Eric Gore for a 144 kit. He does it for $500, including cyl replate, porting for your choice of power and compression, you can solve some of the power issues when doing this. You can add a bunch

I also sold my CRF 450 and bought a ex team practice bike of Davi Millsaps. It was sold out of the MTF facility some years ago. The cool thing is it's totally loaded with all the PC parts, pipe, etc. Since the motor was dead, I replated the cyl, new

What bearing kit did you use? My 97 CR125 KYB's have a larger stem size, as well as the larger axle. 95 was the year they changed it. The KYB's that year were used on all the CRs in 96. They are 46mm instead of 43's. They are much easier to set up well.
Added reply in a thread 1986 CR500 updates 7/17/2014 11:01 PM
I'll check the axle, the front end has the original axle with it. I mainly wanted to use this front as it is KYB, and in 96 Honda went to the larger tubes, and they can be set up better than the earlier forks. I'll check it out tomorrow.

Did you use the whole newer front wheel or were you able to just change the rotor on the 86 wheel. I might do this swap myself, so that I can use a stronger front brake on my 87. I have a front end off a 97 CR125 I can use. But I like my Gold wheels. ... more »
