    Well I have ordered this one.. it looks in really good condition, still has the Cad plating on it. All up it was A$55 due to the crap exchange rate.. but no more expensive than the manky looking one I found before..

    I did place an enquiry on them @GreyImport but I suspect they will come back with NLA, but it doesnt matter if they do now.. Thanks for the input everyone.. normally I can find this stuff easy.. I am suffering from brain fog lately.

    Just had an email back from these guys advising that the part is not available.. so really quick response which is fantastic.
    I have added them to my favourites list :)

    Went out this morning to see what paint I could get for the wheels.. I went to my local Paint supplies shop and while they didnt have the KBR range I spotted the Eastwood Diamond Clear... basically the same thing as the KBR I guess. It will cover polished bare metal as well as painted surfaces.. just what I need.

    I also tried to find a C-Spanner to add to my collection.. do you think I could find anyone that actually had one in stock??
    So looks like I will resort to eBay now..

    For those that already have a C-Spanner or 2.. which size is the most useable? I am leaning towards the 32-76mm

    Hi Buddy
    The C spanner that is needed for the stock SRX head set and the rear shock is still available P/N 90890-01268.Not sure if it will fit the different rear shock castle nut that your going to use though.I'f you can measure the castle i'll measure the C spanner.

    Managed to get out to the garage today and have a bit of a tidy up.
    Then I decided to start mocking up the front end, just to see how it is all going to look.
    Seems the only thing I will need to do is to move the bottom mounts on the headlight bracket but I knew that was going to be the case.

    I had a good look at my paint job on the front wheel and I am pretty happy with it

    The rear still needs to be masked and painted

    My FZR250 handle bars don’t work so I will need buy some aftermarket ones.

    And another pic of one of my rear-sets that has some initial polishing done.

    If anyone is wondering about the tape still on the front forks, I am yet to clear coat them. I will remove the tape later today so it looks better and then re-tape it when I am able to do the clear coat.
    I might need another can of the Eastwood Diamond Clear as I have the swingarm to do as well.
    I have also been tossing up using Black Crinkle finish paint on the cam cover!
    I originally thought red but it will be a completely different red to the rest of the bike and black will just be a simple mod that doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb.
    As always, comments and opinions welcomed

    Ideally I would like to use the FZR bars but they dont mate up to the SRX400 top yoke. So I sat them on top just to see how it will look with bars of some sort on there..
    I cant find a set of SRX400 / 600 late model bars (need to be 38mm) so I will most likely get aftermarket items. Pity as the capscrew sets them at the correct angle and ensures both are equal.
    I wonder how much the ones @Linkin put on the ZXR250... although the diameter of his forks will be different being USD.
    I have a few weeks to figure out which way I will go..surgery tomorrow for my knee replacement... YAY.. I think.

    @Andych New cams look good. Keen to see how the engine runs when you get it all together. Sounds like it will make a chunk of power. Good luck with the new knee.

    Just ordered a seal kit for the front brake calipers, I have no idea what the pistons are like so I may need to get them as well.
    Interesting there are no kits available in Australia, this kit is from the UK.
    I can’t find a rear kit though.. might need to buy OEM

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rear-cal...h=item56b8a4fdc1:g:L3kAAOxy~iJQ-F1V:rk:3:pf:0

    Or with piston's
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/YAMAHA-F...h=item5d7403e140:g:PZ8AAOSwaZJZhDST:rk:4:pf:0

    I wonder why the some of the front kit's are to suit 1 piston, so you need to buy 4x 27mm kit's and 4x 30mm kit's for the front brake's ?
    27mm seal kit's
