    A small parcel arrived today courtesy of @Frankster

    1 only .5mm oversize Piston and rings plus a new OEM Oil filter... looks like I am now committed to building another SRX250 motor... :headbang:
    It doesnt hurt to have a spare motor is the logic behind my thinking...

    Is the SRX250 a 2 valve ?
    Disregard that question, i just googled the part number and saw a 2v piston, but when i went into the site is was a sample pic only .

    What size piston pin does the SRX use ?

    The same size as the XT350, TT350 and TT250 4 valve models... I just checked the manual and it doesnt give dimensions on the piston pin...
    I know it is possible to bore out the cases to take a 350 barrel but it doesnt leave much of a gasket surface... and then you need to use the external oil feed to the head etc... plus the clutch would be a bit weak as well... but it would go well...

    Not sure you can say postman, but this turned up: DSC_0002.JPG
    It's been sitting for a while, so things like the brakes are seized on the rear and need bleeding on the front, the clutch is stuck, and the carbies are most likely blocked up, but first issue is getting the seat off...

    And there was a front fender for the VTR250 that turned up yesterday - well, it arrived Thursday, but took until Monday before I could get to the post office.

    A nice surprise from Japan arrived this morning. Not bad as I only authorized the shipment Monday night.
    I am really happy with the inlet manifolds. They are basically brand new.

    Those intake manifold's have a different part number prefix to XT250,
    51Y v's 42U, i wonder if it's just the vacuum port ?
    Guessing it's for a vacuum fuel tap ?
    I have seen new XT250 manifold's for $11 ea on aliexpress, has the same 42U number on them as the original's
    Not that i need any, min e are like new too.

    Good to know about the XT ones... it wouldnt be terribly hard to drill and tap into one for the vacuum port.
    Might be a good option for @2valve depending on the condition of his.

    A few more goodies for the SRX.
    Some cheap and nasty switch blocks from China and a rear Master Cylinder rebuild kit.
    Slowly gathering all the bits I need so that I can rebuild parts and have everything ready to go...... well that's the theory anyway

    New shims arrived today. Confirming that the 8mm shims from precisionshims.com.au are a replacement for the odd 7.9mm shims in some ZXR250s.
