I am not dead – Teaser

Why haven’t I posted in a while? I’ve been a bit busy…. mmmkay?

On the opperating table

I thought I'd just switch the wheels....

Sneakers for snow or shine

And then I thought I'd paint the calipers... Which required some seroius cleaning

Then I thought, while I'm in here, why not switch over the new head I have and gt this bike running right?

So I’ve been dreaming about tweaking the 250 for more power ever since I bought it, 2 years ago. Being at this point I decided to just commit and start on the project. 1st up is returning it to stock form to free up the original head (for repairs and polish/porting), and get a base-line dyno of what the factory provided me with. The plan on what’s coming is long, so you’re just gonna have to check back to see what’s going down next.

Nice and clean. They were BLACK!

Comparison

So, might as well rebuild the cam-chain tensioner, eh?

So what’s next? Reassembly and turn signals…
