    Spent the day seeing how close the SRX600 forks are with the FZR250 front wheel and brakes.
    Not close enough unfortunately.

    The caliper offset needs to be about 5mm more and then 5mm spacers for the calipers to Centre the disc.
    It might just be easier to use the SRX600 front and rear wheels.
    Then I only have to sort out the brake torque rod and slightly larger rear disc.
    It is still easier than using the 38mm forks and having to make spacers everywhere.

    I bought a vtr250, was hoping it just needed chain and sprockets and little else. Alas, not so. No brakes working, handlebars have been replaced with flat bar, carbies need cleaning and we think the valve clearances need adjusting. That's a backburner job, now.

    The yz250 motor is nearing completion. But went back to the ZXR, which I thought was just fairings and tyres. Sigh. The rear subframe is bent (hopefully that is all that's bent), but fortunately I have spares. Turns out I have about a dozen projects on the go... FINISH ONE!

    Hooray for our education system! "You attended often enough for us to want to get rid of you, have a completion certificate." That and predictive/autotext and typos on a phone. I turn grammar Nazi on some, so tempted to reply with corrections some days. The one that really gets me is no punctuation AT ALL! No sentence breaks, no capitals, no fullstops, no commas, no extra gap to even suggest a sentence end. So you have no idea which bit is broken and which bit is good. And I was only a B/C grade student in English.
    Have you seen the meme about helping your Uncle Jack off the horse - capitals are important! Sorry, auto-rant.

    Bought myself a grandpa bike and boy I do like it , lots of go and easy on the back. One of the guys who helps me out in the shop owned it and struggled with the weight so he sold it to me.

    Did a lot of measuring on the SRX600 rear wheel and while it looks to be a good fit initially it turns out the axle size is 17mm where the 250 is 15mm. There are no "straight swap" rear wheel bearings to go to 15mm id and I dont want to open up the swing arm to 17mm so it looks like the easiest and best way is to go back to my original plan of using the FZR wheels, forks etc and having some spacers made up.
    I did score braided lines for front and rear as well as a good headlight shell.
    I will still need to adapt the SRX250 front guard but hopefully that wont be too difficult.
    Now I just need to press on and start putting it together..

    I did a bit of work to the KX250. Yes, I started another project, but only so I could ride it on the weekend. But it needed a bit (lot) of work, so I isn't finished, but it did start and run! Getting ready for a firesale. Tax return season, so good time to sell up, too.

    Did the fork seals on the bandit at work, holy moly did that fork oil stink! I reckon the seals and oil were all original... 20 years without changing it...
