I see that there is no one here on this forum, so I will not continue to post my photos and comments.
I have to piss off people with my motorcycle restoration topic.

Goodbye TT_TT

Oh ok
I just felt that the site was dead, as is the case for many sites in France, since the appearance of Facebook .
I would not want to disturb.
Then it's always nice to see comments. ;)

We have a very loyal membership base still around... we don't check every day but we do visit multiple times a week.

FB has taken a lot of traffic from sites like this but those of us still around do enjoy restoration posts. I forget to hit the like button many times but am watching.

Thanks for sharing!

Santa Claus made another stop by MRP's chimney =)

The details of the package a little later, thank you to him for his help in reassembling my 250 CR _yum_

Pfff you thought me ?? but no I'll tell you something, Santa Claus does not exist _BGRIN_
In short we come almost to the end of all the missing pieces.

Now we're going to have a good laugh

I started to see the shock and as I've already said, it will not stay on the bike, say that we rolled with it at the time, the rod and the body with the piston are smaller and end that for a 85 YZ, even the KX 85 with its original shock ultra shitty, is limited bigger (it's an image) in any case as for the fork, out of question that I roll with it, because even if I reach my goal of weight loss for January 2020 I think that for my weight of form I would always be too heavy for the rod cash strength of the receptions of jumps.

So I may be (if I find the parts) recondition and put on sale for anyone looking for an origin of this time.
You will notice that I just cleaned it quickly and especially the color of the oil that must have been the original one 30 years ago.


After cleaning but before dismantling


Yum, a good virgin oil dating back 30 years _BGRIN_





Passage of oil in the stem, closed.
later, the dampers will release this hole to facilitate the exchange of oil flow between the two chambers.

Well as the more years go by, the more the parts (even new ones) become rare, I start to take what I need most now to complete the bike and that is or will not be manufactured. Pro Circuit side so it should be the same as the pot is no longer manufactured at PC.

other parts will arrive, and I will update the photos

I get the crankcase and the bolt of the sandblasting, I'm happy but I still expected a better job, already it was necessary for me to blow everything to come home, I told you the sand thickness in the Xmax's trunk, the sand goes everywhere even with the casings closed and filled with bubble plastic + all the plugged holes.
But there are still places where there is still paint and I will be forced to sand, for the price announced at the start which quadruple when I returned the takes! so I'm a little angry, in short, it only takes me once.

All the gearbox bearings are ordered, so the needle cage in the one-handed housing, I'm going to break it down and I'll see to extract the one from the water pump / valve

Fork stop, I test with a large nut to take the measurements, so a stop of 8 mm will be ok, so I think rather than change the frame (before painting) rather as I was blown , drill and tap the tee and install a rubber stop 8 mm thick, it must exist and which is inserted between the two to smoothly damp if I put the handlebars abut on a huge scrub or whip

Spacer for the fork tee made (aluminum) remains to find a dust cover washer of 250/450 crf because that of the CR is in 26 and I need 30 inter diameter, not the most complicated, but I did not not duplicate because the XTrig tee that I mounted on the 450 was not delivered with the dust cover at the price of the thing, finally ... I groan today. lol

it's gone for some photos.

Then I decided to attack the two blind bearings, so I test the crumb of bread (because no bread) and it works, and for the other it did not come with the crumb, so I made myself a small makeshift extractor that worked very well after a little heat of the crankcase.

and I received part of the engine bearings yesterday, so before reassembling the bottom engine, I will take care to align the crankcase with the transfers of the cylinder

A new series of new parts have arrived today, so I add them to the rest of the pieces in the photo.
For info the plastic frame protections are for sale because between the time I place the order and the receipt of the package this morning, I find the Alu protections, so I do not need it.

I post a picture of the set then in detail



DT-One air filter



Boyesen Power Reeds (I have always built this since 1981) waiting to later mount a Rad Valve for the pleasure of the beauty of the parts.



Braking rear brake pads, no need to present the brand, it bites well and the resistance is not bad either



Chain skates
