Thanks guys. I enjoy this forum very much. I’m pleased I could contribute something that a few find entertaining.

I tried to mirror images after I was done. Below is the end result. I'm currently not really making much effort to do the same as this thread with the 92 I'm currently restoring. Those who have done this understand the immense work just to try and make

Reply to 1992 cr250 FMF pipe Fitment 9/5/2019 9:36 PM

Here is an image of a stock pipe on a 95 CR 250 I just restored.

It does look as the pipe has been pressed up but not smashed. I have an FMF that came off a 92 I am also restoring. I’ll get some image of the head pipe.

Finally getting to actually putting it together post. It was quite a process for me to get to this part. I was glad that I waited to get every single part ready in anticipation of bolting everything up. Like anybody else the bolt together goes near as

That is a super clean 92 Rob. Your 92 looks as good as any of the 92 and later steel framed CRs. This 95 looks as clean as yours now that it’s all put together. It still causes me pause on days as I just admire it where I have it parked. Amazing how ... more »

In Rally mode the KTM is crazy responsive. Think 2 stroke responsive. I can only assume this is due to the throttle by wire along with KTMs reputation for building performance engines. My BMW 800 simply isn't as responsive. The bike should wheelie in

Been lagging or lacking initiative to get new content up here. I started a 92 CR that was the worse one of the (4) I have. So it's kicking my butt due to the massive work it will be. I guess it comes from knowing what I am in-store for. Hard to cut any

The clamps look great Chance. Like new. So I assume you are just using alcohol as a degreaser. I have never known someone to use it in that fashion. I use lacquer thinner as a solvent but I am careful with it since it has a high flash point. I had bead ... more »

Thanks Chance.. I cheated by ultimately painting the exterior of it. Triple Trees. So I purchased a set of 2004 trees from a CR250F model. They were only $38.97 and had rubber mounted bar mounts. The 97 set of forks also included the triple trees. My

If nothing is cracked I’m interested. You got a price in mind?

Air filter I certainly wasn't looking forward to this. I knew I was in for a bunch of work when restoring this. White plastic sucks hard. It shows most everything and such even small scratches in the plastic are pretty obvious. This like the radiator

Thanks TZ. I purchased this pile for too much money. Wanted a 92 badly. I already sourced my skid plate and adding a case saver for the right side. Doing the same additions as my 95 build.

I have a post in CRs Only on Facebook Sandman. I’m not in a rush since I have so much to do this build.

The KX almost looks done to begin with. I would love to find such a complete bike to start with. If you got it under $2000. you got a smoking deal. That should be a super easy one to do.

To complete the registration in Ca you will need to transport the motorcycle to your local CHP. Call your local office to find out where this is. Make sure you ask if they are only accepting appointments. Go there and have the bike inspected. Make sure ... more »
