Red or grey scotchbrite is good. Then, wash followed by clear coat.

I've acquired used bikes without titles. Many of them were off (California's) DMV records. I found a friend of a friend who handles title issues. She came over to verify all the numbers on the bike and then she went to DMV for me to turn it in. She is

I have used purple radiator louvers and purple fork guards. They are in good shape and can be polished up to look new. Also, I think there are some purple shrouds on ebay. Search for seller timmer_dirk.

Thanks! It was my first rebuild from the frame up. I'm happy with it.

Good move to stay with the green frame. As far as the cases and triple clamps... Yes, exactly... I media blasted, rubbed with scotchbrite and then used hi-temp clear coat. ... more »

Please don't paint the frame black! It sounds like you changed your mind on that... I hope! Your bike will look old with a black frame, and swingarm. I would just go stock plastics as well. These are great looking bikes in my opinion. Clean and restored/race

Bummer man. I hate when that happens. I had the same issue before. Can you post some pics of your parts? Have you tore down the bike yet? Are you having the frame powdercoated?

I hate electrical problems! Throw a carburetor on there and be done. Haha. Man, sorry for the headaches with your bike. I skipped a couple pages, but has anyone mentioned cleaning the fuel injector? I had backfiring and dying issues on my 2010 YZ450 ... more »

There's a decent '92 RM250 on craigslist right now. I'm just chiming in on this thread but it sounds like you might be in NorCal?

This is my set-up. The green paint is for the frame though. Make sure you get a water catch (orange ball thing) so you don't get water in the paint!

I used a gravity feed spray gun. Something similar to linked below. Just one coat on each side of the plastics. Make sure you get a good coverage. And buy paint with the clear already mixed in to make it shiny. The paint shop will know what you're asking ... more »

Buy Eric Gorr's book. It lists tools, maintenance and everything else you need to know. It will really get you started. Great book! It will have specific information on your 2001 yz250 also. http://www.amazon.com/Motocross-Off-Road-Performance-Handbook-Motorbooks/dp/0760319758/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1452035700&sr=8-1&keywords=eric+gorr

Mixon858, I forgot you were laid off and on the budget train. I'm constantly pinching pennies for my builds. I tend to have too many irons in the fire. I feel ya! Glad to have a local guy on here too. Good luck with the build. I'm into this thread for ... more »

Thanks again Olli. Yeah, I was just curious which one to buy from Motosport Outlet, since they have them in stock. That way, I wouldn't need to get paint mixed from a paint shop. I will probably end up just going to the paint shop anyway though. Haha.
