1st / water cleaning, dish soap, baking soda and a green scotch brite sponge
2nd / sanding under water with body sandpaper, grain 120, then 254, 400, 600, 800, 1200, 2000, 4000
in 3rd / light heating with a heat gun, just to revive the color and make it shine.
Good and well cracked, since I sold the footpegs I had taken at the start for the 250 CR.
There will be grip under the boots, they are beautiful and the weight gain is just impressive.
don't worry guys i plan to blunt the tips ;)
Hi everyone, I know it's not a very funny subject since we haven't seen any reassembly of the bike and its progress yet, but I still haven't been able to start working on it, so I continue to receive parts in view of its reassembly, which I hope will stimulate you a little
the result of some small parts for the reassembly of the motorcycle, that I had ordered more than 2 months ago now, I thought that I would never have them, but hey one is missing, I hope that it will be delivered to me shortly.
there are the rear pad springs and the brake hose guides, the centering pads and studs for the installation of the cylinder on the crankcases, the crankshaft key, the spring washer of the clutch nut, the 2 countersunk screws for one of the gearbox bearings ....
So today Sunday I have a little mechanical pleasure
I start to work again for the 250 CR.
The spring fork that I had mounted on my 450 CRF will therefore become the fork of the CR and therefore disassembly for maintenance but also and above all to redo a preparation suitable for this other motorcycle and my new lighter weight.
I will also follow the reflection of my son who complains about the hardness of my suspensions and therefore also ride more flexible in springs (which will also be the case for the shock absorber and also on the 450 CRF).
To compensate for the flexibility of the springs, especially in the fork, I am going to replace the factory spring collars with models used in Supercross, in order to still have good resistance from mid to end of stroke.
I will take the opportunity to anodize the sleeves and the feet, as well as do a treatment on the divers (probably DLC, unless I find a great plan for the multicolor as at Pro-Circuit with a well-placed price, which I could then propose to my clients)
