Umm, the tank rusted out?

I think thats about it.

I'm culling most of my old projects because I just don't have the time to do anything to them and they are taking up valuable room at my parents place, and the RZ is one of the ones that is going.

I wouldn't like to try and get it registered, and a unregistered bike is pretty much useless to me.

At this stage, the 640, DT, KX, KDX and KLX.

I finished rebuilding the KLXs engine a few months ago and I may get rid of it as soon as its back together.

The 640 is an ongoing thing and with over 60000 K's on the clock I'm thinking she needs a refresh.

The KX is for VMX and the DT is the Vinduro mount.

And tomorrow I start on adventurising the KDX...

Hey did I show The Missionary the article about a guy who rode a KDX around oz in 92?

I think he's seen it. He is keen to adventurise a KDX. I think it's the best bike for an adv 2 stroke. I tried to adv a husky WR360....not a good choice, I imagine the drawbacks are much like your YZ WR. Vibes, wont sit on a constant speed, needs a much much bigger flywheel etc.

The KLX rebuild, is that the same engine that had valves hitting piston on that ride we did? I though that engine was beyond it?

Not beyond anything when you replace the head and cylinder.

It also got new everything else.

Thanks, I would not have ever enjoyed this thread without the new sub-forum.
