Well the piston looked good. It had one mark near the front. It is being bored and then will have a piston ordered to match it. In the mean time I was working on the top of the cylinder. The paint was looking really bad.maybe a natural look would look

Time to get going. My other project the 1986 YZ125 is running well. I took the head off today and this is what I found. What do you think?

What coolant are you going to run in the magnesium case?

Regretfully the project is dead for me. I took the epoxy off that was on the case and found a large whole. The left case will have to be replaced. I did not want to fool with slitting the case and finding a 1996 case so I sold it to someone willing to

I have a 1986 CR125 that I am about to start working on. It runs but needs a new piston and rings. It also needs new fenders and other worn out parts.

Will a different year left case work with my 1996 CR250? The numbers are different.

Thanks!!!!! You are the man! I have looked for this.

That might be a better route if possible. I guess I would still have to split the case before welding or not?

I have done top builds. It never a bottom build. How difficult is it?

Added reply in a thread A piece of my case broke off 3/7/2019 7:56 AM

Is it possible to replace only the left case or do I need matched set?

Here is a picture of my case:

Any advice?

I bought a 1996 CR250 real cheap. I started it the other day but I have not run it through the gears yet. The case has JB Weld on it. I think the chain probably broke and cracked the case. In the process it broke off the lower chain guard mount. I circled

I will probably stay with the current forks right now to save money. How do I tell the exact model of the forks and the rear shock? Both need oil and new seals. Also, what kind of oil do I put in the rear shock?

We got her started. I have not been able to ride I yet. It was storming here real bad. It has 180lbs of compression in the cylinder. How is that for a 1996 CR250?
