  1. Did some more today, sanded and sprayed the airbox - silver and cleared so that is ready for fitting. refitted the chain guards and also the rear metal guard and also the rear tail light /number plate part. cleaned the light and light sanded / polished the lens to bring it back to new looking. Also decided to use the old reflector holder mount to hold the rear indicators as i didnt want to use the stock mount spot. Also have decided to go with the second lot of indicators i bought of ebay as they are a little smaller and more era specific looking. really enjoying the build now...its all
  2. ok got home tonight, looked at the motor and thought, bugger it, im going to crack the head and have a look see / clean up. so for all those with the tens of years worth more experience than me what do you see. i have done a basic clean of the head ? it look ok, notice that its not completely smooth it does have like a slight sandy grain texture on most of it, appears like how it was cast ? and is normal ? what is the easiest way to take the main part off, it says to use rubber sledge and tap away, i used some rolled up shirt and normal hammer lol, no go so far and dont want to tap too hard
  3. Spent today getting into bike, Got my 525 chain all sorted, its Tsubaki japanese brand, cut back to 100 links for $72 which is great, pick up Tuesday night Also got some Dririder Assen gloves off ebay they were size 3XL and won them for $1.25c Fit perfect which is great. The guy then gave me a 8XL Dririder waterproof jacket for free !!, as the gloves and jacket were thrown in with bike he bought and he has no need, the 8XL is heaps to big for me im sure ill find someone who wants it at a cheap price :) After researching tyres i settled on some Pirelli MT43 as they are a great on / off
  4. Little bit happened over last few days got my official VJMC membership pack which is great, bike will be permit rego'd through VJMC once complete reinstalled the swingarm and torqued it up reinstalled the steering stem and it feels a good level of tightness, will recheck prior to riding etc undid top bolt off forks, took out and cleaned the springs, both springs were identical lengths which is good neither have sagged. from pouring out oil and releasing bottom screw i got out around 135ml from each fork, figure there is atleast the other 30ml or so sitting in and around all the aspects of
  5. ill be there hopefully on my old trail bike...will be cutting it fine, i hope to have it on the road by then. cheers
  6. quick update, bought some more stuff over weekend, grease and degreaser etc. chain is currently soaking in degreaser to clean it up then ill check its tolerance, might be ok still. degreased the motor and stripped all the black off in anticipation of repainting black again....but since the whole lot is bare now i like it alot better. Also bit of a bonus i feel, the top cylinder head was painted black so has gone back to bare metal, though the bottom half with horizontal fins isnt painted black / gray it is black /gray metal i guess which i like and gives it a two tone look. Its hard to see
  7. Cheers Guys Was thinking about my tacho / speedo and i know the speed doesnt work for some reason or another and is a vac sealed unit from factory. Pretty sure i should be replacing tacho cable and speedo cable (might fix problem) etc but adds more cost....i just ordered a new front brake cable Sooooo i bit the bullet and order a Trailtech Vapor (stealth black) Unit does speed / Revs/ motor temp / ambient temp/ clock and heaps more, shift lights internal 3v battery Though to use the full backlight ad warning/ shift lights needs 12V input straight from trailtech they reccomend as the c
  8. Eventful few days, happy times thats for sure Got my Learners Permit :) Got a sweet Joe Rocket replica super sport jacket (kawasaki) and got a Dri rider climate control 2 jacket
  9. Ok so the indicators arrived and are sweet, but globes from my indicators fit perfect just that they are too tall by around 6-8 mm and i cant put the lense back on. My globes say 6V17w on them so figured thats what they should be and thats what my wiring diagram states. Now the wiring diagram for the road going F11 250 TR only has 6V8W globes which are nice and small and would fit in the indicators great, now the only difference in the two wiring diagrams that i could see other than horn diff of .5amp and different look of voltage regulator, seems to have an extra switch within it in the 250
  10. Quick update, 7" oversize headlight gaurds arrived today, mocked one up on front, fits fairly well, also sat guard on and tested gauges, all looked goo and new ears keep headlight in closer not sticking out from of gauges by much more than 2cm. Also tested throttle and brake lever, all fits perfect behind the CRF handle bar guards and they are looking better the more I add parts, once chunky front tread on should all tie in nicely, like the contrast of chrome n black Cheers
  11. Nice amount of post arrived home today. The petcock filter arrived along with the speedo/tacho NOS shieilds and the KL250 shocks. Also i found some of the headlight mesh guards i have been looking for incl postage for a good price so they are on their way via express post. Shocks are slightly longer which is great, best aspect though is that on the softest setting they are stiffer than the stock shocks on their hardest setting. Springs are 60mm diameter as opposed to stock of 50mm. I like the way they look tougher and more enduro whilst stock looked a bit cruiser like. Also the springs
  12. Thanks for replies guys, my bike has a 6 volt system, not sure ill bother testing wires, was getting ahead of myself in little details like indicators i would like when i have so much cleaning and polishing / painting that really needs to be done. info from ppl and net has lead me to believe that 12 V indicators can be used not a problem as long as they are of an average size that you can swap bulbs over to a 6 V bulb. after hunting ebay etc i found some i live that are classified as mini indicators and from the pics on ebay it appears a standard 6 volt bulb should fit in, the case is 60mm
  13. This arvo i spent hour or two and did the second fork so that i could do a mock piece up of some of the front end, need to see how it will look to keep me inspired and moving on. Happy with how it looks, some pics below, the tacho n speedo i am going to drop the bracket lower by around 5-8cm so that it sits flush with the top triple as opposed to stock, this will fit better as i have/will drop the headlight down so that is more inline with the tank/seat/rear tail...didnt like how it sat up high. Will also let the forks pop through the top triple by maybe an inch to lower the front end slight
