I cleared room to install the rear shock, and this is how it sits "bolt-on" fitted, no changes made to the stock shock mount in the frame, it looks alot lower in the back, but it's just like 25mm/1" but adding the longer swingarm and bigger wheel and it looks abit worse then it was. Form the messurments it should add up to about the same as it was, but the shock has alot more "without rider sag" and way to much sag with me on it 😂 so if im not able to adjust the shock into fitting the bike's weight and my weigth, I might have to make a new frame shock mount. But for now im just gonna fix the spacers and boltmounts to fit the swingarm and rear brake perfect. #yamaha#xt600#exc#yz450f#enduro#dualsport#bikebuild#advrider#thumper#project#projectbike#custombike
LINK ARM RESTORATION: ———————————————————————— The Link Arm was no exception and of course.....the bearings were knackered. Unit was stripped down, cleaned up and treated to a set of brand new All Balls Racing bearings and seals. This seemed like a nice simple job, but after the bearing on the left side was installed it was apparent something was not right when the bush wouldn’t pass through the bearing.
The unit was stripped down again and I assumed maybe the bearing hadn’t gone in right (it doesn’t take much to ruin a bearing if not installed correctly). After some inspection and measuring it turned out the bearing seat had a high spot that had crushed the bearing when installed, nothing drastic and beyond seeing with the human eye.
Normally this would have just been a ‘throw in the bin and buy a new one’ situation but the part proved quite hard to find so it had to be repaired. The high spot was machined down and a new bearing fitted and tested…… perfect fit this time. ————————————————————————#hondacr250r#hondacr250#2stroke#motocross#dirtbikesforlife#dirtbikebuild#restorationproject#garagechimp#projectdirtbike#2502stroke#cr250#cr250r#honda#hondamotocross#bikebuild#bikebuilders#projectbike#mx
