689 it is amazingly easy to do. Watching the tutorials I felt they made it easier then what it was. It will come apart very easily. You can use plastic wrap as a means to slide seals over. Don’t forget to push down the valve inside and on the top of ... more »

Godcho did you have any difficulty getting front brake pressure after rebuilding it? I rebuilt mine on that 95 with new Galfer lines, seals and what not and they still feel spongy. I’m thinking maybe I need to tap the rotor to get trapped air out. I ... more »

Thanks again Godcho. I consider that high praise coming from a guy who understands the passion these types of builds take.

Was Alan Passmore running races out there during that time? Quite a guy. Became a Fresno County Sheriff Deputy. He knew me from out there and cut me a free pass when we were stopped for trespass to hunt. Great guy. OBTW..... Epic thread and one of the ... more »

At least 2 weeks had gone by. I decided that air drying my rims in the crazy Ca summer heat was enough to seal the Cerakote. I rebuilt my hubs with all new bearings. I figured better to put those in now before re-lacing.

I watched several videos ... more »

Reed could quite easily play a much more pivotal role as the new team manager. The depth of his riding/training experience along with his obvious popularity could make him the new Roger D. In this new role as a manager only (not riding) and mentor to ... more »

Nascar the purple shrouds are easy to find on Ebay. They are the UFO brand of course like all the plastic I will be replacing. Senseless to try and find stock Honda and pay those prices. The graphics are indeed EvoMx. Currently they are in the process

I have been working on the bike. Not as much in weeks past. Dealing with cleaning up the air box and one of my radiators. Plus I bought a hammered 1992 CR 250. By far the worst shape of these 3 Honda’s. I’m done for now acquiring project bikes. These

The trees look stock and forks look like Honda Kayaba. So does the disc look Honda. I’m not familiar with Yamaha set ups but most of that looks Honda CR 96 to me. Great find.

I saw the job you did on your chain guide. Absolutely beautiful effort. With that on the bike it looks brand new. I redid my own which was in similar bad shape. I am no where near covering the work I did on that yet. You didn’t get rid of molding seams. ... more »

How I use Cerakote. Cerakote main Site-Press Me Cerakote is a fantastic product to use. It comes in the color so desired along with a small bottle of hardener in the oven cure series. The oven cure or heat cure tend to have the most amount of desirable attributes vs an

Nice score on the shifter. I’m going to try and restore mine but it’s ground down on the underside of the tip. Yours was no brainer... Replace it. Motor looks brand new. Great job.

Pipe is done. I felt the finish from Pacifc would not be as durable as an Cerakote one would be. So I reshot the pipe after a good wipe down with lacquer thinner. I was already spraying some black so it wasn’t a big deal. I knew it would fit in my modded
