Figured I would start sharing my current build. The goal is to have it finished by spring. Starting with an all original 06 I picked up last month.
Air box was caked in a layer of grease so i disassembled cleaned and reassembled.

Casting lines removed and clamps cleaned up.

Thanks guys, bike is in great shape overall but was very dirty (likely never washed with a power washer). I have stripped it down the the frame already and cleaned everything (forgot to take pictures). I will take some pictures of some goodies I already have as well as what I have coming later.

Working on updated front fender tonight, decided on the the 08-17 RMZ front end. The 18/19 front just wont look good with the bike to me.




Hinson clutch cover came in.

Some light speed goodies as well

Good lord , that is one fresh RM! Great find man , and good luck on the build!

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Pegs are for the Rm, but do take a little bit of work to make them fit but for a good reason after talking to a tech at Bud. There is a little tab on the back that has to be ground down to make the peg lay flat but bike that have been rode alot need a little more material to compensate with frame ware. Mine being near new I had to grind almost all of it off. Fit and finish is great I will be ordering a set for the 450 soon as well.

Also got some works connection pieces in.

Anyone have any experience with scalvini pipe fitment? As you can see in the pictures mine doesn't fit the greatest. I had to remove a bolt on the motor and it is also touching the radiator hose. There is a pre dented spot in the back where the bolt goes but it is to tight to fit. I am thinking of making it a little bigger but nervous to dent pipe. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Heat and bang it a little with a small hammer

Mine was really close to the radiator hose so I cut about 2cm off the end and that allowed to pull it tighter and create some extra clearance. I might wrap the hose with some silver insulation tape just be to safe.

Nice bike and great progress but those bear traps for your feet look angry.

I know exactly which bolt you guys are referring too. I only have like a 2mm of clearance myself with the Scalvini , but after about 20 hours with it on there , there isn't even a scratch from them making contact. It yours is making contact , I would probably remove that bolt and grind some of it down , or possibly fit like a button head bolt in there. That will give you a good 5 - 7mm of clearance.

Also.....where the heck did you find the lightspeed parts? I've been looking forever for a skid plate.

That's exactly what I had planned to do on the hose. Should have no trouble there after I do that. Thanks!

I have enough clearance when the pipe is in place but getting it into place without dinging. Grinding the bolt down is a good idea I will have to try.
Thanks for the advice jeffro503!

You know a 13 year old bike is fresh when the seat foam is still brand new.

Should have wheels and a trick box of goodies from Motostuff delivered monday
Anyone using a lectron carb? Very interested looking for opinions on it.

Looks awesome. I’m a huge fan of not cutting the number plates and leaving them stock.
