un1's CRF thread

Since I know some of my fellow 'Blade owners love a good pictorial "build" thread... and I just bought myself a project of a 2004 CRF250R so I can ride around with my teenage son and his 2004 CRF150F... here we go

as advertised:




as purchased:

Re: un1's CRF thread

Some of the motor was salvageable, so I just ordered a complete rebuild kit for Piece Of Mind (IronMaiden reference)

Re: un1's CRF thread

While we're waiting on the rebuild kit, I assembled the larger components (some of you have already seen this image):

No. An entrusted friend who just "rebuilt" his 2006 CRF250R currently has possession of the motor. Tomorrow we have plans for him to LERN me, and comsuming food.

No sense in polishing a "dirt" bike frame. Waste of time and effort.

If it is not his time or effort, then that would be a very subjective statement.

@IanDoohan chances are, it'll spend most of its life on display in my shoppe... instead of what it was designed to do Not that you or any of your machines would know anything about that.
