I know, I know... if it brakes on the first ride I'll punch myself for it.

nikolic- it usually goes in front of of the steering tube or the front of the frame midway between
the tank and bash plate. As long as it gets cool air, it's good.
I also got a new oil cooler from a Yamaha XJ 550. The one I got was a bit big and not appropriate.

I meant "where" as where in the lubrication system, where to connect it?

Hey nikolic, sorry for the late reply, been pretty busy around here.
Didn't understand it the first time. I have a diagram that another member
has done, I'll just upload it to photobucket in a few and post it here ok?

Ok, so after I fixed the broken piece of the case I started on the wheels which
were not as bad to straight as I initially thought







Did the same to the back wheel on my improvised stand and they turned out ok

In the meantime my rod arrived!!
I was suprised to see the original honda big end rod, it was not that bad for 18 years of abuse







The new, shiny one looks better

While waiting for the shop to press it, the head was assembled with new seals and springs



Had to fit a new plug boot and wire to the coil






Since I was doing electrical stuff, decided to make some LEDs taillight

Got the crank from the shop along with the lightened flywheel. Not much was removed, around 400grs

Sorry about the lack of assembly photos but I just forgot, was in the zone and in no time it was done



Got the timing right but the chain is a bit streched, half a tooth. I think it will be alright

Off to the frame it goes. A little of cardboard, a wiggle here and there and its in place



The cooler was next. Easy mod, if youre unsure how, just search for it or ask, theres nothing to it.
I got one from a 125cc with pretty good flow, cut the oil rail and just connected the original ones that
came with the cooler.

I think the pictures speak for themselves

Nice job on that cooler! How did you fit CRF plastics? How does the left one fit on the air filter?

That timing chain doesn't look good at all. If it's not fitting tight to the bottom of the gear teeth I wouldn't run it like that.
