    Gave the SRX250 a good wash/going over and went for a 200km ride. Everything went well,rear drum brake surprised me! Carb needs attention in the near future as she breaks up a bit north of 100.

    Bike look's very neat for it's age !. Nice pictures by the way :thumb_ups: .It's pretty cool to see another SRX 250 on the forum and particularly one that is registered.Time to hang my head in shame :( , but wont be long until mine is registered.Is the bike on normal rego OR on historic rego ?.

    Thanks @2valve I'm already caught up on your resto and @Andych build threads,they're both awesome!

    Mines on standard rego for 3 months. Then I think I'll pull it to bits and return it to factory specs,nothing like yours or Andy's,just stock. Then I'll be looking at historic rego(I have many bikes I need to get historic rego for,just need to workout the procedure) I think it spent a lot of time near the beach,the frame is quite rusty(hard to tell in the pics)

    I like riding the thing that much I may just keep riding it until that engine gets too tired before doing a resto, the suspension is in great condition which helps a lot. Also started on a diet to make this one and my other small displacement bikes go faster!

    They're like hen's teeth. If you find any, let me know.

    I've bought some chinesium rings, but have been too afraid to use them. I will have to eventually.

    @Murdo has used chinesium rings (and maybe pistons?) on a few rebuilds and he's happy with their performance. I just don't trust those folks used the right ingredients to make cheap replacements and that they won't last and I might end up damaging a bore at the same time. I will use some soon as I have an engine with good pistons and bores, but compression was low before disassembly. I will run the engine in as per Murdo's instructions and see how it goes. The Balius rings fit the ZXR250C piston, but I've never tried them. @Unkepttoenails Yours is a C model isn't it? or does it have an A engine?

    Mike Norman @Mngforce from G-Force https://mngforce.typepad.com/ has been bringing back extinct parts for greybikes (mostly V4 Hondas) but with most customers wanting 'cheap' and the Chinese competition I don't think he is likely to be expanding the range of rings that he has.

    i believe AHL provides factory pistons to yamaha. if that is true i would be surprised if they did not provide rings.

    I have a set of the ahl rings for the zxr but I'm just worried they are not good enough quality

    I've gotten some stuff done, over the last few months. Like a ZXR fixed up and roadworthy (hopefully all fixed up) and for sale. The glacial YZ project has the engine all assembled and the frame got a spruce up: IMG_20190712_182318.jpg
    Looks darker than the photo, but too pretty and I'm too scared of damaging it. Got a KX 250 going and trying to decide whether to sell or keep it. Plenty of work to be done, still.

    Use them, they will be ok. I've got four engines running with the AHL pistons/rings and all have good comps and don't use oil.
