Yeh I bought the material and then sent it all off to get fitted professionally. Pretty happy with the outcome.

Rear sub frame and diff and out and getting over seen then prepped and painted then all new poly bushes.. calipers are all there need to buy disc and pads..after all the back end is built then it will be engine and gearbox strip rebuild time..

Not a lot been happening in build progress more ordering and waiting on parts..
heading back to the Uk in November so I’ve started collecting parts there to be brought back save on postage and tax.. ????????.

New set of trail rims picked up not sure if they are going to be the final wheels but they will do for now.
tyres will be getting changed to 205/40/17.

I used to run that size of wheel & tyre on my R...its now back onto 195/50/15 as the 17's gave a crap ride and handling. Each to their own but you have been warned! Smile
I'm liking the build though, wish I'd kept my winter green R from yester year!

Like I said before this is going to be a trail as I am trying to get brake coverage.. I am running r33 GTR Front brake disc's.. they most likely will get changed but there are a starting point. not the final wheel design as these were only cheap..

Yeh the winter green are Rare as.. this will not be built or going anywhere quick..

Managed to get 2x decent half days in on the R.. got the diff all clean and stripped ready for some paint,

removed the full full exhaust system in one.. (this is going to get heat wrapped) was so light.. surprised me. Started wire bushing all the excessive crap off it, had a oil leaking on to it at some point in its life.

Picked all my bolts and nuts I had electro plated, well impressed, when I’ve got another bucket full will be sending for some more to be done.

Front sway bar took back to bare bare metal and re-painted.

Managed to press quite a few suspension arm bushes out.. some are harder than others.. need to get them out then they are getting sandblasting and powered coating along with the sub frame just need to find someone on the GC

Nice progress, I’m sure there’s a lot of places down there that will do it, interested to hear what it will cost

So far i have found someone local to sandblast / dry blast all the parts I am wanting doing for $50, and the little bit of welding on the caster / camber adjusting tabs and a slight patch on the exhaust system for $80 just need someone to do the powder coating..

No real progress as such, just started a bit of wiring repairs on the front and will need to chase up some new spade terminals to fit in to the side light connector.  

 

When I am back from the Uk sandblasting and painting the sub frame..  

 

also bringing some goodies back.. ????????



Next will be doing the complete rear sub frame bushing, Planning on the whiteline and then poly bush the arms..

Right little bit of progress... a little is better than none right...

been working a fair bit and also been to the Uk for 3 weeks.. so little R time..

spent the day on her today and managed to get my front bearings pressed in and also my new hubs.

New / 2nd hand rear boot struts changed out.. have a spare set to get re-gassed in my leisure.

new wing mirror inner covers also as some one screw speakers to them... not a fan.. back to no hole covers..

still need my subframe welding and coating and also all my bush set so I can start rebuilding the rear crandle will be a after Xmas job now...

Ha project? More like a box of bits!

Very cool though I do love an rgv250! Do you have other bikes to?

yes defiantly a box of bits. a lot of bits to collect.. I've had one before and loved them and this came up and the prices are just rising for the 2 strokes.
no other bikes at the moment but I've had loads in the past..
