Rath racing sells a kit for the 250R. Has about 15 pieces. Turned out real nice on my 88.

Gotta love Neil's sense of humor. Well she came back with the camera, so here is some pics of the Rath gusset kit.

This one shows the gussets on the swingarm pivot, front engine mounts, one below the engine mounts, and sub-frame.



Here is another angle showing the swingarm pivot.



Here is one of the kit before it is welded in.

The tube goes across the very back of the subframe near the seat latch.
