    My Titanium Cerakote has dried into a sludge in the bottle so black it is.

    Back to the RH switch. Because the Tefzel wire I used is a lot smaller in diameter it leaves a gaping hole coming out of the switch. The mud wasps will love it, so I made a grommet to fit.

    Just ordered an Ohlins shock to suit the fake CBR250RR from Webike Thailand. Cost 10250 THB delivered.
    I will send it to the Ohlins factory here and they will strip it and send the clevis to me. Then I will bang up some shorter Titanium versions to suit the MC22. I will also get them to change the spring, damping and a new bump rubber if the stroke needs adjusting.

    Had my spare swingarm powder coated in texture black, same as my Yamaha, and the other bits in satin. Not sure whether I should have done the suspension rockers to match the swingarm but will see what it looks like assembled. Next step is to drop the engine out, clean it up and powder coat the frame. I am hoping to get enough new products online in the next few months that I can get a more professional TIG (Chinese one was just a waste of money) and finish the sub-frame and Ti exhaust, fingers crossed.

    Changed the 3 parts to also be texture black. The satin was too shiny for my liking and looked like plastic.

    Poor Neglected Honda:
    Some progress. The frame and other bits are going out for powdercoat and the fasteners for nickel plating. I ordered a YSS rear shock coz Ohlins don't make the unit for the CBR250 (new single cylinder version) anymore. Also picked up another Ducati top clamp off eBay (probably take 7 weeks to get here) to Clampenstein the Honda version. Don't like their stupid triple nut nonsense. Also bought a wet blasting attachment for my high pressure water blaster and will try it out on the engine.

    Turns out Tyga have some Ohlins shocks for the new CBR250 (almost a sports bike) things, so I got lucky. Have sent it off to Ohlins to be modded, but they were a bit sceptical. Anyway see how it turns out.
    Bit lighter too, though that will change when I fit the heavier spring.

    Hi all, I have made an update to the first post in this thread to include an artist's drawing of what's in my head. No, not the sawdust, the other stuff. I will also engage his services at a later date to do both the R4 and the YZF300 ghost project.
    Cheers
    Blair

    Very interested in shoving a CBR250R shock into MC22 performance/fit. When I had a 2011 250R previous owner included some shock off of another bike that is a "common upgrade" for it, but I never used it. Remote reservoir, blah blah blah. Looked fancy, but I was never able to push that bike beyond it's limits with stock suspension, and I rode the piss out of that bike.

    The modern CB250R shock, including the Ohlins version, is a bad fit for the MC22, but a perfect fit for the FZR250. I decided to just buy an off the shelf YSS for the MC22 and keep the Ohlins as is, for the upcoming Yamaha.
