Looking good, staring to come together.
Do you have any idea what brand of air box lid I have? (It came with the other 250r I bought)Looking good, staring to come together.
Cool man thanks. So I’d pretty much be stuck on a full swing arm skid. Any recommendations on a good one? Thought of making one but I don’t have a tig welderThe airbox lid you have is made by Shaun McKee. It’s a great piece. I have the black on black version. I know he had a large batch made up a while back, but I’m not sure if he has any left or is planning on doing another round.
As for the linkage guard, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one for the 250R.
Unfortunately, yes.Cool man thanks. So I’d pretty much be stuck on a full swing arm skid. Any recommendations on a good one? Thought of making one but I don’t have a tig welder
I have an 86 frame and swing arm. After I realized I ordered the sprocket gaurd i realized most skids cover the sprocket anyway Oops oh well I can modify a skid. I’ll look into thoseUnfortunately, yes.
The best, IMO, would be a skid from Dan at Pro-tect Fabrications - 317-467-1701. However, I’m unsure if he’s still making them anymore. Outside of that, XFR, Moose, etc. are available last I checked on eBay and other retailers.
What year frame and swingarm are you running? If OEM, I have a couple variants of the XFR skid that I’d sell. I bought them for an LSR swingarm that I didn’t end up using because they didn’t fit right. I would assume they’d fit the OEM swingarm just fine.
Note that you’re not going to be able to use a skid plate with the BVC chain/sprocket guard, at least not without modification. An alternative to the skid is to add a Hess brake rotor guard in combination with your BVC guard. The Hess unit is a really nice piece, and the two together would provide great protection. This still leaves your linkgage exposed, though.
Good point I was thinking of that tooHold off on adjusting the seat pan. When the cover is put on & stretched it will probably pull it back to the perfect spot
Haha wow I just saw that the tread direction is not the same. I was looking all over for a direction on tire and didn’t see one so I just mounted it. I wonder what direction they need to go? I mounted both with the green line around the tire facing out and the ugly whit bar tag on the inside of both tires…Looking good.... One of the front tires is mounted backwards
So this is all new just came out last week. For what I want I don’t want the smaller flywheel I’d rather have the better low rpm luggable engine and slightly less of a hit for the loose hard pack desert and Rocky trails but I can see where other ppl might want less flywheel weight to. Also the fact that I will be running lights, battery and possibly a small fan. I will be doing an update on what I think of it here very soon as long as I get my other motor running perfect so it will be a fair comparison to OEM.RZ350 people love Zeels but they don't have as much of a following here. Not sure why. Is the CR map a new addition? That might make them more popular here. I guess you still don't get the smaller flywheel. Maybe that's it.
Well I hope it’s as good as the company is making it out to be hahaNice! Thats the best ignition on the market.
