Will clean up the PC & add a new r304 silencer

After reading through forums about adding newer forks I also went ahead & started searching for the goods.

I added SSS to the 97 yz250 I did last year so how could I not.

I found 06 kx450 forks (need to be rebuilt)
07 kx450 wheels,hub,rotor (going for powder/cerakote too)
Axles, spacers & 07 kx450f brake system. Everything will bolt right into the clamps. Also rebuilding the rear shock.

Hey, as a possibility on the rusty hardware, Spec Bolt has a line of nickel plated, flanged and dished bolts.
I plan to go this route on my build ('95 YZ250). http://store.specbolt.com/index.php/cPath/99/osCsid/ns6l98h478re8q24nkj46qlnr3

Not sure if it is more cost effective to re-plate or go with new hardware but just throwing it out there. Keep up the good work!!

I will be replacing all the body bolts but bolts like axles motor mounts swingarm linkage etc and is about $50-60 to do the whole bike every bolt washer nut

Forks, front wheel, axle & spacers off the 06 shipped out today.

Forks will need to be rebuilt & cleaned up but I’m into them fairly cheap for even actually finding 06-12 kx 450f forks

That’s gonna look terrible. I don’t like it.

Scored a early version of the r304 today, I’ll get it all cleaned up. Also found a retro sticker from Works finish along with a CF mudflap mount.

Sweet build! Love all these smoker builds. As info those forks you got are 2006 not 07. 07 and up had dlc lowers and a different top cap.

Thought it was 08, thank you for correction. Just glad I found a set. I would like to send them out for ti nitrate after unadilla.

Perks of putting an 07 brake setup is it’s cheaper to find some parts to help the performance. I will be racing this machine. I’m doing what I can to make it compareble to today’s Setups.

Just scored this EBC 280 kit for $52

No green. Found nos purple shrouds

Basically making it a 96 with updated forks & brakes. My 96 clamps allow me to still run the 96 plastics.

Ordered the evo 96 kit,seat cover, swing arm & plates

Thought about painting or vinyl wrapping 06 kx forks guards purple to truly give that 96 look

3/16/2018 7:40 PM

Went to send hubs off for cerakote, ya silicone was on the rear hub because it was cracked. Ended finding a billet talon hub off a buddy. This will be stripped & cerakote to match the front
