Ah, cool. I'm not really into racing, but the V2R seems like a good solo.

Saw this in another thread and thought I'd share.
Need pics. How do you deal with front wheel travel?

The factory stuff I've seen has all been hydrolic.

Winter Project Bike

I picked up this 1978 Yamaha DT 250E last Sunday. I plan to make it road worthy and mechanically sound. It runs but needs somme serious TLC.


Look what I found in the air box............

Yep, that's pieces of a sponge that were crammed in there. Anyone know how to get rust out of the bottom inside of the tank?

I have heard of people using rust-remover liquid and crushed walnut shells. Pour in the liquid and add the shells, then shake vigorously.

I used to use navel jelly and aquariam rocks. Shake the shit out of it
for some time. It will all rinse out. Good luck with your project.

I heard concrete cleaner diluted with water does the trick

They don't really show the detail but I believe that the 2 shafts parallel to the forks are splined male / female. This is the same way length change is handled on driveshafts. If you have a drill press it has the same feature.

80 miles today, lots of single track, some atv track. Saw zero people. Riding temps are perfect.




















Sun set, temps dropped, thankfully the car was close.


100 mile day tomorrow, tons more single track, lots of sand, washes, and desert goodness. Staying in Green River if any of you losers want to come down and ride.

So that gives it linked braking too? The drive units are off the countershaft,
so if you hit the rear brake hard and locked it up what does the front do???
