This is my first ever build post & and first ever post with vital MX so here we go!
Picked up a wrecked 2010 Honda crf250r for $500.. The guy I bought it from had it rebuilt, and within 10 hours somehow managed to cross thread the drain bolt and bust the casing. Parts that were a bonus to this cheap score:
-full yosh rs4 exhaust
-warp 9 rear wheel
-Hot Rods bottom end (still in awesome shape)
-works connection rad braces
-works connection hole shot device

Parts I’ve installed:
-all balls linkage bearing kit
-all balls swing arm bearing kit
-all balls wheel bearing kits (x3)
-all balls triple clamp bearing kit
-tusk bolt kit (fricken awesome highly recommended)

Nice project bike! I would personally not use the hot rods crank, search for a oem crank and you will get to spend a lot more hours on it after all the labor you put into it.

Is that a 2 layer powdercoat on the hubs? Looks incredible!

That chrome powder coat (I think it's powder coat) looks so good on those hubs!


Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

Thanks guys! Yes it’s a two part powder coating process. Base coat is prismatic powders super chrome and top coat is a translucent rancher red.

Cool, looking forward to seeing it when it's done.

How does that powder hold up in the hubs? They look great I’d like to do mine

Powder is a very durable surface as long as it is prepped 100% perfect.

Here’s a picture of my 06 crf450r I powdercoated. It’s held awesome to the multiple times I’ve tipped it over! Photo

Here’s the engine stand I built to help with the rebuild! Photo

Got the rim laced up, sprayed in kg black chrome (which is a dark gunmetal grey metallic) wasn’t exactly the color I wanted but still looks great & is very durable! Photo
