I remember Howard's......they were done when I started getting into Hondas...yes, the forks were punishing, just like the forks on my new 93 Cr250. I do have a complete 98 RM 250 front end That needs a home .....

I have not got into my forks yet..., it's easy enough to just swap them for some late model forks....I have done that on a few bikes. I"m going to try and work with the stockers. I have owned many CR"s and have ridden the 89"s years ago, I know the forks need work.

All good advice from everyone..... You can grab the fly wheel & push/pull move back & forth, any movement, in/out, up / down is play in bearings.
