RM250 Coach Project 96 RM250

Well, today was a big day. All I need is fork oil, crankcase oil, coolant, and a spark plug. Once that's done, I'll be able to break the engine in!

I put a new cover on my seat today, the old one was a little ratty. It was quite an experience, I had it almost completely stapled down and had to restart because it was lose, but I got it!

I made a whole bunch of progress over the weekend and today. I took the whole front end apart, greased the headset, partially disassembled the forks to drain and refill them. I made some mistakes, had to redo the forks, which meant buying a few new tools and starting over on the process, got them reassembled correctly and this is where I ended. I also got a brand new full set of plastics.

Sounds like it's breaking up a little just off idle, or it's not warmed up enough.
Probably needs a few long pulls to get a really good idea of how it's jetted.
Otherwise, RIP IT!! -BIG DAN:thumb:
