Very nice work! I like that you ride it instead of making it a museum piece. The Countershaft is a mile away from the Swingarm pivot. How is the chain? Sloppy?

That's a lot of work! Looks like he got 6+ inches of travel, wow! Did he use a 250 swingarm? What did he use for a shock?

I've been running BLENDZALL GOLD and I get compliments on the smell everywhere I ride! The bike runs great on it as well, which for a YZ490 says a lot!

Awesome! The baffle should be inside the stinger. You might want to re-pack it if it sounds like a tin can. I had a '78 KD125. very similar (looking) bike. Keep your eyes peeled for skunkworks parts like an intake manufold. It re-routed the carb back ... more »

Can anyone identify this reservoir? It didn't come stock, but was attached to the YZ250 shock.

I took the shock off the parts bike and took a look inside. Yikes! At least they used one shim.

I was wondering about that swingarm. Very cool to have a Redline on your bike!

Wow that's a great transformation. I looked like the chain was rusted solid and the rest was pretty crusty as well. Nice work! You guys should be swapping engine and suspension set-up ideas and knowledge.

Nice project bike! Please loosen your chain, it's giving me a head ache just looking at it!

The right elbow is always a little lower on Suzuki riders hahaha. Glad you made it up there for a race. 6Pack is going to try to get the track to do Vintage next year and hopefully we get more attendance. I hope it catches. A lot of guys I know are building ... more »

2stroke153: .020" should be fine to take off of the head. You probably wouldn't notice any difference in performance anyway. But for what it's worth, at least it will clean up the gasket surface. I think the top end will be low on compression until the ... more »

They usually combine the EVO and Pre-90. Sorry, I thought I mentioned that. Stinks that you missed the first moto. My buddy Chris blew up his RM125 in practice, so you missed racing him, which would have been a riot.

Holymoly! Is than an accentric top triple? I love the radiators and all the one-off hardware. Is this the last non-PV CR? Wish I coule hear it run!

What happened at the race? Looks like you DNS'd the first EVO Moto.

Just grabbed the most important part of the bike, which was missing. The Manual. Lots of good info in there... Hopefully it has ignition timing specs, which is one of the things I need. I also reference the pictures in the manuals for wiring, cable routing

Shock mounts have been played with as well. Interesting looking CCM. I never noticed that they run a chain primary before. cool bike.
