Actually the opposite. The knock on the shock was it couldn't handle SX tracks. It seems strange to me that a manufacturer (Kaw) continues to use it previously with Savatgy and now with AC, but the factory team of the manufacturer that puts the shock ... more »

Yeah, one was a friends. I have actually restored mine twice. Full racer restore, then put 5 seasons of chasing AHRMA and AMA vintage races, then restored it again. The second restore I did my friends bike at the same time for him. His is in the foreground ... more »

I wonder if the JGR 450 guys are using the BFRC shock? I have not found a closeup pic of the JGR 450s to see if they are using it or not. I know HEP uses Ohlins suspension so obviously they do not. Kawasaki has been testing with the BFRC going all the ... more »

Here are a couple 84 RM250 frames I had done. Ignore the shock springs as those are aftermarket and did not have them coated.

I've used RAL 5017 Traffic Blue for all my powdercoating.

The start pic is from 250 Heat 1, which Amart holeshot and finished second.

Glad you "rescued" it instead of it getting found by someone just looking to take it to the scrap yard!

It's a 450 and probably actually an RMX450, or at least the motor/cases. But yes that is electric start -- RMX450 has had electric start since 2010.

I have a 1984 RM250 that I've racer restored twice now. When I first restored it for racing I sent the front wheel out for re-lining and arcing of the drum and pads. I was shocked how good it worked. I actually almost crashed in the driveway testing ... more »

A couple years ago someone was selling NOS Oneal Bullet Boots in the box at Mid Ohio Vintage Days. They had like a dozen sets and I picked up a pair for I think $35.

Yep my mistake there. Ahhh the old YZ400/426.....such good memories of watching riders shear off their kickstarters trying to start it! I went from a 2000 YZ250 to a 2002 CRF450. Pre-ordered the CRF as soon as the dealer was able to. It had its faults ... more »
