Cylinder and exhaust flange were covered in oil and dirt. Got them cleaned up a bit tonight, but will give it a better scrub soon.

Still failing to get the powervalve out. Cannot get the rod which holds the valves in place ... more »

Thanks very much. I don’t know much about them so appreciate your help. The seller has 2 other keihin PWKs. Is the short body the one I’d need? Linked that below https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F263753590092 ... more »

I’ve added a link to an eBay item. Would you be able to tell me if this is the correct carb? Many thanks for your help https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F263753601813

Could anyone help me out. I’m looking at buying a Keihin PWK carburettor for my 2003 Honda CR 250 but do not know the exact carb I need?

Probably the nicest CR 125 I have ever seen. Well done, amazing build

Searched for some screws for the front master cylinder as the ones currently on the bike are clearly not made to be on there (not a countersink bolt). Found a pack of 20 ti countersink bolts for the same price as 2 stainless steel bolts. Thought this ... more »

Cheers for the advice. I’ll see if I can find someone to skim the head for a reasonable price. Found new ones in USA for $85, so may just enquire to see if they will post to UK.

Cleaned the head up a bit, but the marks around the edge of the insert are quite deep. Tried a bit of sand paper but didn’t want to take too much material off. Also wondering if you’d be able to tell me how you remove the pin which holds the power valve ... more »

Thanks very much for the help. I’ll give it a go now

Did you use some fine sandpaper to clean it up? Marks aren’t too deep, so I’ll give it a go without taking much material off. Yes I’ve had a look at the powervalve mechanism. It looked pretty clean and the one cable looked new. I haven’t had a look at ... more »

Took the cylinder head off and there’s quite a few marks where previous pistons must have detonated. I’ve had this on another used bike I bought and local dealer said to sand it down slightly. Bike runs great, has a new piston, but would just like some

Thanks, that would be great. I’ll drop you a message if I’m stuck on anything. It won’t be anywhere near as nice as yours, but just trying to do my best with minimal parts on a small budget

Parts I have cleaned up so far. Used a blow torch to get the airbox back to black.

Almost finished removing the casting marks from the dog bone, took me over 3 hours. Never before have I appreciated the effort it takes for this process using ... more »

Oh, but since the frame and swing arm are the same on all 02-07 models, they would be interchangeable?

Seen a post on the bike build section somewhere that crf 250 shocks off a 2012 model bolt straight up to a Honda cr 250 2002-2007 models. Can anyone confirm this for me for sure? Thanks

Can’t wait to see the end product. Love all your builds. These bikes are so much fun and competive against 250f’s if the engines are fresh

Got the frame and swing arm cleaned up today. Used turtle wax wheel cleaner with green scour/scotch brite pad (just what is sold locally and cheap). Before:
