I'll second that!

Thanks so much Luke! I'll give you a buzz when the top end is ready to bolt together!

Depends where you get them

Peterman got all my bottom end bearings and seals on the KDX for right at $50

New parts are trickling in this week

Received the new 100mm cylinder sleeve yesterday from XR's Only and delivered that to Basiley's High Performance http://www.baisley.com/ at lunch today. The cylinder and head had been cleaned and polished and looked brand new. Looks like they will get the cyclinder re-sleeved this next week.

Also received the new HotCam Stage 1, and new rockers




Plan is to get the head together the first week of March.

Cheers!

Which rockers did you get?

If you got the ebay ones, the adjusting screw will be too long, so use the originals (don't toss 'em!)


looking good, btw!

Just curious why you decided to get a new cam? Were you concerned the new rockers wouldn't like the old cam?

Sorry if I missed it, but did you go for the big fins?

+1 on that, I've got three motors and never had a bearing fail.

Looks like it's going to be one clean & mean machine when your done.

Thanks Blake

I did get the Ebay rocker arms, and remembered about those pins. Easy enough, I just swapped out those long pins for the OE's. Great price and look to be just as good as OE. Fast shipping too from Florida!

No time for wrenching this week. I'm off for a four day on Mt Hood tommorrow for what looks like a huge powder weekend!

Thanks for the bump!

I went with a new cam since a couple of the lobes on the existing hot cam were lighly scored. Luke gave them his once over and suggested the same.

I'm not electing to do the big fins. One less thing to do right now.

This job I have is getting in the way of any wrenching time

Many thank you's this week!
Thank you Radioman for the tire changes on your sweet machine this last Weds eve.
Thank you Luke for loaning your bearing puller kit. Could not have pulled the wheel bearings without it.
Thank you Steve for the help Saturday with the wheel bearing replacement front/rear.
Steve on the "Pittsburgh" bearing puller

New Maxxis IT's/ Bearings/Seals/Front Rotor

Adding new bits to the rear swing arm

Finally, the first part to be bolted to the frame...a miracle to finally get to this point
Setting the rear swing arm into position


Rebuilt rear shock and linkage installed and torqued to spec



The XR project is finally starting to take shape
Triple Clamp installed/New IMS 4.7 gal tank



Should get the re-sleeved cylinder back mid week and hopefully have the top end finished very soon

Air Box

You should have installed the air box before the shock.

Thanks for catching that before it really became a serious pain in the ass.
