Neither did I… .. gonna have to make some calls now bec the nearly BRAND NEW fmf pipe on my 03 KX250 Has an area the size of my fist where the chrome plating is flaking off and since it came on the bike when I bought it I can't get anything done warranty wise from fmf so I've been looking into having the playing stripped off

I like days like that, well it's really not much but it is a pleasure to receive parts for the 250 CR.
To test, but I think it will do the job, compared to the old original hoses which may no longer be very tight.

not too much time for the CR, but today I took a few minutes to check and repair the needle of the low-speed compression adjustment of the shock absorber that will take place on the bike.
So rectify the needle and it starts again. see to have the red screw re-anodized.

The GHOST Topic unsure

Small arrival of parts for the 250 CR today, it is always a pleasure even if it is not much.
You can see there a HotRods crankshaft which is logically sold for the 250 CR from 92 to 2001, but after information taken, it turns out that the HotRods (probably other brands too and OEMs) are compatible with the 90/91 ( see even since the 86) so I wanted to check for myself, the vilo of my engine being nickel I will either keep this one in case I have a problem one day and since it will become a rare commodity (it it's been a while since it was not in stock) or resell it. or in the last case I mount it direct, I don't know anything yet.
Then for the handlebars you know it I like the gray handles grips (and if you do not know it now it is done) to make connection with the air box and the future protections of fork and disc in gray also as in the era of factory Honda RCs, and to finish the piece "Vintage" by excelence, the front fender stiffener, I had that on almost all my motorcycles in the 80s, so this is also a little reminder of the past .
I don't know yet what my motorcycle will look like after reassembly, I have only a vague idea, but I hope that it will turn heads in the paddock with fractures of the retina of the eyes

I needed a Boyesen Rad Valve for a client, so I took the opportunity to add parts for the 250 CR so as not to have to add additional shipping costs when reaching carriage paid.
So not much, a key for the clutch because I have the vise grip made for but I do not like to use it too much, it is more stable and for the price I do not care to make it a.
The good hose to connect the tank to the carburetor, being the wrong size last time, a can of filter oil (very good I use it since 2010) and finally a small part made in Racetech for my rear shock absorber , for those who know wink

as soon as possible I will resume work on the bike, I have not moved forward since October approximately.
I just bought a house with a garage to make it my workshop and it is here that I will start again the work on this motorcycle, once I would have done the work of fitting out the workshop

All in time. I’m sure that workshop will be sweet. Can’t wait to see it. Let’s see what she looks like too when your done. I can’t wait to see the end result of that bike also. My house was built in 1932 and my workshop is actually leaning but I make due with it. I keep it as clean as I can. Would be nice to have a new floor and cabinets. What I need is a toolbox. I have a small toolbox overflowing and a husky cart. But yea good stuff man

half clutch housing and rear shock body returned to the house and small covering work (misery cache) on the radiator grilles, just to give them a little facelift while waiting for new ones one day.

Hi all
not much new since, it's still on stand-by, but I received a bag of Pro Circuit stickers for temperature control and the shock spring preload nuts.
it doesn't take much to be happy, as Balou would say

Hello All

confinement Covid-19 requires and not the possibility of going to do the work of my new house and workshop (15 km therefore prohibited, I would have to be within 2 km)
suddenly I do not advance on the restoration since I have no place to work, the bike is completely in pieces so in the boxes it does not take up space.
I therefore finished covering the radiator fins, since it was not found in new ones, unless I found a model of another motorcycle that could be mounted on it.

and some pictures from before

1st video concerning the restoration of the 250 CR 91.
This is the 1st part, so as not to make the video too long which can make you want to zap.
