    yea, like that colur scheme, RD 250.
     
  2. Merry Christmas. My wheel and brake stuff came today. Have to machine the swing arm and make some spacers. Hammer no likey knuckles. :eek:

  3. In the previous pictures I was using the old axle that was too small. After a few minutes in the magic laboratory and POW the swing arm and chain adjusters accept the bigger YZ axle. Looks like the caliper will slip into place just fine. Next I will be working on the chain alignment then I can turn the spacers on the lathe. Another plus is the fact that the yz wheel feels like it must weigh 5 pounds less than the xt wheel. A lot of that could be the big ol' DOT tire too.

  4. Justin, I'm glad you approve. :) I whipped up some wheel spacers and washers for the axle. Took care of the sprocket and rotor line-up. If anyone wants to do a rear disc swap on their XT350, this is the way to go. It seems almost to easy. :eek: Tomorrow I will start working on the master cylinder and foot lever. I am procrastinating on doing the exhaust. I just don't know where or how to get the bends i need to clear the front tire and frame. I am trying not to spend much more on the bike, so I need to get clever now.

    Those are actually for a 250cc 2-stroke,so they should work well though you may have some work jetting in the mid and main jets.The pilot jets should be good,but needle and main may have to be tweaked,or they'll work as is.The only way to tell is run and do plug chops. lha

    On a set of carbs, if they are properly tuned to your bike, using just one on a two into one intake that same tuning should run the bike the same without much adjustment.
    On a two carb set up as the engine runs, one cylinder pulls fuel from one carb. As the engine turns the other cylinder pulls fuel from the other carb.
    With the two into one, one cylinder pulls fuel from the one carb, as the engine turns the other cylinder pulls fuel from the carb.
    On both set ups one carb feeds one cylinder.

  8. I started machining some bits to mount the rear brake lever. The shaft will get cut to the correct length then welded from the back side. Next I will be making the master cylinder mount. So far so good :)

  9. So...I finished my rear brakes. They are functional but I need to get a shorter brake line, and mount the reservoir. I also came up with a method for mounting my seat. I know its different but it is effective and I know its one of a kind, haha. (video below) Sorry its shaky...I there are some things in life that work better with two hands :eek:

  17. Got these little babies today, I found it slightly odd that there was a bottle of 5 hour energy shipped in the box with my pipe. I bet they are telling me to chug it and pull an all nighter in the garage. haha hopefully I will get some time to work on the exhaust this weekend.[​IMG]
