no car.. but my 1972 honda xl250 build

Postby JLAUDIOinCIVIC » August 18th, 2013, 7:01 pm

bought this bike off craigs, maybe 5 years ago?.. for i think $150 bucks.. PO replaced just about everything as far as trying to get it running without going in the motor.. the problem was the motor was full of mud. wasnt locked up but the rings were done. i put a oem piston in, aswell as a full gasket set. never spit the cases, i cleaned as much as i could be the covers removed. i did get it running, rode for maybe 20 miles. then it sat for 4 years.. now on today. pull the motor apart the last couple days.. took the head into work, to cut the valve seats and port it.. both intake valves were stuck closed, clutch is stuck togather, motor still have a good amount of mud in it.. sooo pics..

the day i got it

now to the fun stuff.. iv already ordered tires and tubes.. tires are here, already have fork seals and dust covers, street fighter ducati grips(new oem). waiting on my tubes, another gasket kit, seat cover.

will be replacing just about everything that needs to be.. clutch, clutch cable, chain and sprockets the list is pretty long..

i had planed on going a head and boring it, running a big bore piston but i think im just going to run the new piston i put in it for now with just a ported head, and custom(oem look like) exhaust.. i did find a site that sells a cam for it.. so probably just run that
