Motor is bolted in but learned I must be missing a few lower radiator hoses. Kid I got it off must of lost them since I do not have any in my YZ stash. Off to eBay unless some spare hoses will work.

1/30/2017 - Needed a new carb bowl drain bolt. Ebay special order.
1/31/2017 - Chem dipped carb, cleaned it up & connected all electronics.
2/1/2017 - Drilled out washers to space bark busters on throttle side in event of crash and stuck throttle & boiled carb.
2/2/2017 - Will reassembly carb with SS all head bolts for bowl screws.
2/4/2017 - Ordered new carb bowl gasket, bowl drain screw o-ring and kick starter nut.

Need clutch, exhaust springs & FMF fatty pipe. Then it is ready to climb some coal hills come april!

Got clutch cable and would not mount up right. Found out there was a missing ring clip need to hold it to the motor. Throttle cable guy ordered me one for 1995...had to order an 83-88 one so that still is not finished. Cleaned rest of carb slide up but dead in the water with it until I get a chain next week, some exhaust springs and order my pipe. Off to another bike until then.

none are restorations...just redos I will ride, only bike that may get sold or traded off is the YZ250. However did 4 bikes at once after I broke my foot. Nearly all are about done for this season now.

I redid my wifes 05 KFX700 (the one atv that does it all)
I serviced m 08 KFX450R in which I have sold to a friend who is doing weekly payments of $125 (shitty seating positing is why it left)
I claimed the 660 as mine so the 450R could go (super comfortable bike)
I am finishing the YZ250 I picked up last summer by accident...the way its turned out I kinda don't wanna ride it now, it got pretty nice.

Normally I build 1-2 bikes a years ground up. This year will stop due to my wife having a new baby so I have more time to spend with them. I wanted to get everything ready to go and out of the garage I did not want before the new baby comes. I even killed my ebay biz so I have more time.

2-23-2017 update

Correct throttle cable installed
OEM front number plate put on
Picked up a NOS UFO white 00-05 front fender. The black 92-99 front stuff was burning me out big time. I sold it to a friend with a 99 YZ125 in need of new plastics...looks better on his.

I changed the front number plate to match the 05 front fender. Currently modifying a brand new 86 YZ250 FMF fatty to fit on my 87 motor. Then it goes for jetting.
