Eek ADV CRF80 Build

I dig small bikes. I picked up a nice 2005 CRF80 a week ago. In NV, you can plate a dirt bike. That is what I'm going to do with this. The supply chain has already started delivering stuff. Here's what I have so far:

New plastics
Pro Taper Honda mini bar
ASV red shorty levers (blemished, but I can't find the defect.)
Baja Designs DS kit. New stator, headlight, LED turns and brake light.
BBR heavier shock spring,rear chain guide and skid plate.
FMF Powercore 4 full system.
Bridgestone TW 8/9. (installed already)
Six Sigma jet kit on the way.
OEM cable set
EBC brakes

I'm a mechanical knucklehead, but I'm going to have a go at doing this myself. I have the Honda shop manual and I can read pretty well. Here comes the photos.

The victim.



These things come apart pretty easy!





The airbox was a mess, but it cleaned up well. With a nice new UNI filter, it's ready to eat dirt.





I had to go a little narrower on the rear. Tires were a bit hard to source. I'm glad I found a matching set.





I'll post them up as I get stuff done.

I already have the bar risers on the way, and the tall seat foam is sourced.

i was thinking of a custom crf150 motard.

I'm in a clean frame of mind

I spent all day today cleaning the frame as best I could. It was pretty dirty. It makes me feel better to start all these mods with a clean frame. I cleaned the wiring harness and squirted everything with contact cleaner and dielectric grease. I pulled the carb and shock off also. I'm well and truly in over my head now. But I think it will be fun.

I cleaned out the steering stem and coated it with CLP, for corrosion protection, of course. My OCD started early.



You dirty frame!





Nice and clean.

Got bored waiting for parts

My kick stand was pretty ratty, and I had a can of Honda Cloud Silver. So, I cleaned up the kickstand and went to work.



Then, my attention turned to the frame, and a couple of unsightly rub marks.





I hit a couple other places on the frame and the inside of the swingarm too.

I went to HF and got a small furniture mover and a couple more straps, and wound up with this.



I liked it enough, that I'm going to leave it on the wheels.
