Is that shock a piggyback reservoir?

I would be very surprised if you don't need to move the triple tree from the CR250 to the CRF250L. If this is the case, you need to determine if the CR250 triple tree will fit in the CRF250L frame. If you wish to mount the CR250 triple tree on your CRF250L, the spindle of the triple tree must mate to the steering stem, et cetera. Even when possible, fork conversions usually require a significant amount of work, which frequently includes machine work.

No speedo or any of that junk to mess with. Just going to come down to getting all of the wheel spacers right. I am going to test fit it some more tonight, then through my factory front end back on and send those forks off for a rebuild as long as I can figure out the spacing.

Will you be shortening the stroke of those CR forks?

Upper fork

Anyone know what the "finish" is on the upper fork, maybe sputter coated titanium nitride? I know they used to put some sort of clear coat over the aluminum to thwart oxidation on most of the aluminum way back when. Could also be just anodized.

Hoping that you want to move, did you check into shipping costs yet? I was checking the shipping cost for US to Australia, as opposed to renting, and it seemed crazy $, then more to ship back home. Plenty of places here to explore, for way less $.

Thanks for correcting my error; all my old-school motorcycles employ speedometer sending units. This speedometer units create spacing differences if you switch between a street legal front wheel and a dirt bike wheel.

Here are some excellent tire changing videos. I use the tools and techniques demonstrated in these videos, and they work exactly as demonstrated.

Ok, so I'm going forward with this project. I ordered every seal and bushing I could find for these forks. I am bolting on 43mm KYB forks off a 1995 CR250. I ordered Racetech Type 1 Gold Valves FMGV 2530, AB Fork Bushing Kit 38-6014, MSR Forks Seals and Wipers 56-137, Racetech Springs FRSP 395150, 215.VM2.K5 fluid 54oz, Motion Pro Damper Rod Tool, and a Motion Pro Fork Seal Driver.

I know there are some guys that know way more than me about rebuilding forks, so anything I missed? Any instructional youtube vids or write ups on the KYB 43mm? This will be my first fork rebuild.

Based upon the parts diagram, these appear to be cartridge forks. I like the following two videos produced by Rocky Mountain ATV/MC.





I imagine Race Tech provides instructions for installing the Gold Valves.

Took this photo of our new CRF while breaking it in out on the back roads near Raglan, New Zealand....great fun. I'm heading back up this way this weekend to see if it still has the stalling issue. Forecast is going to be perfect sun (again)

I've almost got the photo upload technique sorted, just need to figure how to make the photos larger....
