Well looks like my run with this adventure is done More specifically the charity ride.

The missus informed me last night we'll be in Bali over the easter period and that puts an end to proceedings

I might still buy the little project I've been looking at though...then I'll be ready if there's another ride.

Have fun guys

yeah the DFAT thing would be cool - she won't argue against that

Glad to hear it's going to be annual - so I'll go ahead with getting a little project going

Im on holidats for two weeks up in Forster, enjoying the wife and kids enjoying the beach. Only problem is being so far away from the Skunkworks I wake in the night thinking about this bike.

I have been mulling over the front end rebuild and have a few questions abou the steering head bearings:

I need to know the dimensions of the steering head bearing sizes on the XR250 and the sizes of the CB400 Four replacments.

I tried to find a listing on steering head bearings but no luck.

I know I can pull them out but the bikes are 3 1/2 hours south of here

howdy Pezz,

xlx250r which is the same as xl250r has the same 'replacement bearing as the xr250r '85.' part number 91015425832
http://www.cmsnl.com/honda-xr250r-85...ist/F++06.html

now the headstem bearings in the shed of the xlx250r are E32005J, pickup the new pair tomorrow.
the dimensions are here,

http://www.tec.nsk.com/brgic.asp?FromBrgic=1

Great Matty

Just found the sizes for the CB400Four is 26 x 48.5 x 15

So now I have to find a bearing that has 25mm ID 48.5 OD and 15mm height or there abouts

I will keep searching

Gday Pezz.
I work in ag stuff, so thought I'd check out aftermarket bearings for your hotrod (like Fafnir, Timken, etc).
Bottom line, bugger! I can get part no. 30205, which is 25mmIDx52mmODx16.25mm tall, but that means reaming out the headstock to suit, or you could use the XL250 brng set, but that means shimming up the headstock with 0.75mm thick tube, so haven't been able to help, sorry man.
At least you know what your up against now I spose!
Did something similar years ago, and reaming out the headstock, then fitting a machined-up inner pipe to restore strength was how I went, but I'm sure you know what you doing man.
Enjoy!

Thanks for the research.

I will have to pull the front ends off both bikes and see what I have to play with once a rule has been used.

I may have to machine up bearing carriers for both bearings and weld them in place in the steering head.

Been in the back yard, as I just got back from Holidays, and giving the XL and the 400 a bit of a look over and a measure up.
Front will be pretty straight forward. I will need to build a new stem and bearing carriers.

On the back it will be a big effort to get the Pro-link rear end on it with out butchering the frame. Maybe just butcher it. I will pull the remnants of the engine out and get to see the frame clearly and work out the bracketry.

So a mini poll if you will indulge me.

Should I paint the 400's frame and what colour???

Black - Its a scrapheap bike, dont bother

White - Factory Dakar bike colour, not sure which factory

Red - Scientifically proven that it will go faster

Blue - Cause it will look okay and annoy the Yammie guy's

Rainbow - Cause I love trees and whales

just started stripping down an 81 gsx400F that i grabbed for $400 a couple of years ago, the intention is to get it road worthy for a mate to ride on his L's but we'll see what happens (looking at a DR or something similar for more adv type riding soon after) I might have it ready in time to tag along to this (if i can get loki another bike to ride by then)

First thing i noticed when i pulled the sump plug is that fuel's been getting into the oil (stuffed rings i suppose) and i mean a lot of fuel obviously over some time. it's a 2600ml capacity sump and i pulled 7 ltrs of oil/fuel mix out of it.... any of you guys who know something about engines got any ideas where i should start with trying to fix it?

Between the tank and sump there is:
fuel tap -- very likely
floats in carbs -- even more likely
1 open valve -- positively likely
2 years to degrade ring seal -- yep
Start at the top.....and enjoy
