I'll keep my eye out on the Acerbis stuff. Thanks for the info. I painted the blue rear parts of my Splitfire bike myself and it turned out good. I bought a pint of automotive paint ($80 for everything) from a paint shop. They matched the rear fender

Hey Chuck. Yes, I will attempt to build a Peak bike. Again, not as nice as yours but I will do my best with my time and budget.

Cool video man.

I love those bikes. I'm about to buy a 92 rm125 from a friend. Is this a rebuild or just extremely low hour bike? Or just an old photo? What's the story?

I would keep an eye out for a complete cylinder on eBay too. Side note: Don't use a Wiseco crankshaft if you rebuild the bottom end. I learned the hard way and wished I knew before. I will swallow my pride and pass on the info.

I saw a couple videos on YouTube where they used a torch and just burned off the carbon on the inside. I think it will smolder and you can feed compressed air to periodically blow it out.

"Sun rims"? Never heard of them. But ok thanks. I'll do what I can. I don't have the time and budget (or the organized garage) like yours but I got the bike last night. $525.00.

Quick question Chuck. PC ran the 18" rear wheel on the Peak bikes, correct? You've inspired me to buy a 92 cr125. It looks like I'm picking it up later today.

The round PC shorty silencers have the best sound, period. Nice choice. FMF is second best in my opinion.

Everything is fixable. I would tug your rod (haha) and feel for up and down play. Inspect the head, valves, and cylinder. Replace the piston and see how it runs. Parting out is the last thing you want to do! IMO.
Added reply in a thread Anyone use a tumbler to clean bolts? 11/13/2014 11:57 AM
I've had better luck with a soft polishing wheel (on a bench grinder) and green rouge- just hand polish each bolt. The finish will be consistant and shiny. I'm not sure if it puts on a protective coating, but it seems to keep them from rusting unlike ... more »

Do you have a friend who would offer you to use his CDI for a test?
Added reply in a thread 03 YZ250 lacking top end power? 11/11/2014 9:54 AM
Maybe the power valve isn't opening all the way? I believe these have the boost exhaust ports too so maybe there is an issue there. Or, does the bike smoke a ton like the right side seal is bad? That will cause a rich-like running condition in the top ... more »

Good start! Make sure you get the paint with the gloss already mixed in so you don't need a clear coat...if you spray it yourself.

You could get the black paint bead blasted off and repainted or powder coated. Maybe the powder coater will strip the frame as part of the deal. I don't know how that all works. I agree with the green frame though. I hate most black frames and all black
Added reply in a thread KX 250 Flooding When Starting & Backfires 10/30/2014 11:00 AM
Sounds like a plan... Like I said, I think even the smallest amount of gas in the carb should be enough for the pilot/idle jet to suck up the fuel. I think only too high of float level would flood the cylinder. I wonder if the jet is way off size. I ... more »
