Well done

Look forward to the ride report, hope it goes well.

What year model are the KYBs?

The centre spacers a winner and fits like a glove. I'll fit the rest of it up tomorrow hopefully

Forks are 06 YZ250F with GYTR triples off the same bike

Put it back together with a rebuilt motor after the crankweight bolts backed out and jammed the crank at Belanglo. Subframe got welded up and straightened, too. New rear pads, new pad retaining clips, air filter..

Can I ride it now? Please?

I was less than amused. But.. I am smugly pleased with myself that I didn't lose my shit, shear off the kickstart shaft and further trash the thing when it happened.

It was all very controlled.. with some language involved.

Anyway, Nate built the motor so it'll be as reliable as a hammer now.

300 hrs has come around on the old anvil!
new top end,P/V clean up,steering stem lube,fork service,shock service,linkage and swingarm bearing clean and lube (still amazingly good apart from lower shock bearing showing some age) May have to machine something up for it after another 100 hrs!
I'm still loving this bike!

Well done mate. The gassers are strong (though the midrange is weak). LOL!

I reckon it is how you ride it, super smooth and barely spin a wheel, but I'd bet you maintain it well too!
Good job bud!
