    Unfortunately that radiator looks like it`s too different. Seems like it doesn`t have enough curve to it either

    I didn't know that you could get your hoses done like that, and looks like quality work too.

    Yep that`s the beauty of it . Doesn`t affect the rubber what so ever. The spring bits have a bit of pitting but oh well .I`ll take a better photo later

    That is a great price in anybodys language. Not sure I would trust my 40 year old brake hoses.. the Cad plating looks good though.
    I hope there isnt too much material added or your axles may not fit through the bearings etc.. I hope they do though :)

    Most of the stuff all sorted into bags . Stupid Kawasaki specifies bolts with 2mm different lengths m6 10mm length in some spots and m6 12mm length in other spots

    Yeah neither haha. I did thoroughly inspect them so hopefully theyre fine . The plating is all stripped off before replating so should be fine

    Decorative plating is usually only .002" to .003" thick (you can convert that to metric if you need to) so should not be a problem.

    Found this at a wrecker in Gosford . Went and picked it off a bike sitting outside. Was heavily yellowed and the black was peeling off . A very good polish and respray the black and it looks fairly good. Bit of a yellow tinge but beggars can`t be choosers. Nice to see it has no cracks or sun crazing surprisingly

    Bit of progress. So after concluding that my oil line had 2 pin holes in it and that new ones are no longer available I decided to make my own . Using the original ends I cut off the crimped ends and silver soldered some high pressure fittings onto the remaining pipe that was sticking out . Now it takes regular high pressure oil hose and can be replaced if the rubber fails again. The hose is rated for 500 psi and is pretty overkill but it's what I had so oh well . Then I got them zinc plated silver

    20181126_170548.jpg
    And for the bottom fitting I've also drilled and silver soldered a brass boss with the correct thread to screw in the oil pressure switch

    20181126_171102.jpg 20181126_171056.jpg
    As you can see I've re-located the oil pressure switch to the oil line and the new oil pressure sender to the original spot on the block. The oil pressure sender would foul on the side fairings if I put it on the line

    20181126_171017.jpg
    After a first session of paint stripping I'm now torn between doing the bike as original condition or maybe painting the centres white and polishing the outers . What do you guys think?

    Long time no post . Alot has happened but I haven't posted here. Some of you may have seen my posts on the zxr250s Australia Facebook page so this will be old news . For those who haven't this is what's been going on.

    b69f3f647798a0731689826f254e7e8c.jpg

    Alot of parts cleaned up and ready to go back on

    a2835d6c6ac0da2b7f3141469299ada9.jpg

    All the silver parts prepped and ready for paint

    Didn't take many photos but the swingarm spool mount was completely missing when I got the bike . My dad machined a new piece from aluminium stock and a friend of mine tig welded it on as well as the hole I drilled in the back side to hammer out the big dent in the swingarm. As you can see it's like it was never there

    b054775f3cca87bd61e8540f7f19b2ca.jpg

    Seat locks all fitted back together and working

    Subframe fitted. Tie downs and lower triple clamp fitted.

    Bought some new pieces from Kawasaki. Much nicer than the swollen and worn out originals

    4191379a8b5d49f65fa67ba5fd24e1ba.jpg

    Original handle bars straightened . Repaired the ends and got them re-anodised . Was not cheap...

    Tags back on. Not the correct rivets but I dont think my blue slip guy will mind

    e0f0ccecb2cfda33c75c86df68480f92.jpg

    Also retrimed the seat with the original looking vinyl. Have yet to do the pillion seat

    Damn that looks awesome Tony. Keep posting here please. I don't have FaceBook and to me it is just a scrolling mess.
    So what is the plan for the paint scheme?

    Going with the original colour scheme. It was a later model, had white wheels and some panels were still blue underneath so I definately think it was a blue bike. My mates bike that I got running for him is a blue bike aswell so I have his to get sticker templates from 91f0ef02c29bd60bc21ebd5e807a4473.jpg
