Thanks Cristian.
I followed your rebuild thread even before coming a member.
Well done man, she turned out really good.
Itīs an awesome feeling, grab an old bag of bolts and turn it into a proud ride!
For me at least. Thatīs why I try to replace only whatīs necessary and the rest itīs all clean, polished and fixed, if possible.

Thanks man. Appreciate it, really.

I guess for now iīm set. Except for the countershaft and sprocket cover. Got any lying around

What do you think about this shaft in ebay? The splines look ok but the end of it look like it has some scoring

Iīve started on the engine but canīt go any further. My brother has my air gun and Iīm still waiting for the flywheel puller
so it has to wait a few more days for the tear down.



While waiting, thereīs the cleaning part. Not that fun, but part of it.
This has to be fixed, it seems the previous owner did not check his chain clearance that often...

It might not look like it but this loom was a mess. Cut & stripped wires and some funny home lightbulbs connections...

Updates

Hey guys, been busy the last couple of days but managed to work a bit on the bike.

Anyway, been sorting the electrical part. It was bad but some cleaning, new wires and heat shrink
tubing and itīs all sorted now.

Since I was messing with the loom, decided to make a kill switch. 2 actually but the 2nd one will be
on the handlebars





The wire will be routed on the upper part of the airbox and connect there to the loom.

Cool2

The shock was really dirty and scraped. Also completly dry of oil so a rebuild was in order.
After new lower seals, some paint on the spring and a good cleaning, it came out pretty good
considering itīs age



Also gave it that brushed aluminium look



Next, I did the carb and a made a new choke plate out of some aluminium scapes



It wasnīt that bad inside, just the regular deposits and cleaned up easy. But I know now why my head
is all sooted up. It has a 165 & 65 jets and the needle is on the last clip.
Iīm at sea level so thatīs a bit too much. Will sort it out after she stands on her on legs

Nothing special

All of this new parts means Iīve got to get my frame ready for my brother to paint.
Spent all day sanding and scrubbing but sheīs ready. Automotive stripper is my friend!



Mind you, around here sandlasting is not common nor cheap so itīs done the good old way...by hand

Triples are ready to paint too



The wheel set on the XR is going to need attention. They look straight and in good shape but the spokes
are badly rusted.



Iīll need to learn a new set of skills...wheel lacing.
I got a quote of around 100 for new spokes and truing. Thatīs not good. Iīll buy the spokes for 30
and do it myself.

Any hints and tips? Iīve done it in push bikes...

Thanks Cumbacheech. Iīll post up my results when done.
First Iīll have to remove the spokes and take them to the shop to have them matched,
I can find the specs for them. I heard that they are not all are the same size.

Steveīs the man. He knows his stuff and already offered his help on some parts that I need
to source from US.

Spokes

The front wheel has one length spokes as does the rear. Last year when I refurbished the wheels on my KTM SMC I sent a sample spoke to Buchanans and they copied them. The front was a single length but the rear has two different lengths. My buddies Honda XL600 has three different length spokes for the rear wheel.

Thanks Steve. I was under the impression that the front had 2 different sizes. Donīt know where I got that.
Iīll remove them and take them to the shop to have them matched.

Still havenīt done that because Iīm trying to set up a wheel stand with my rCBR swingarm stand.

Iīll be pmīíng you later ok?
