Well in comparison this bike will be worth nothing, but If I say Flug rode it well than that's HUGE$$$$ Scott you have an open invite

So my tour of the Northeast is complete and I have both bikes home,



This sticker pretty much makes me love this bike even though it is slow as molasses....



It did start right up and I drove around my palatial estate not worrying about chewing up the grass because I don't think it could spin the tire..
perfect.

So using my advance anti lens compression photographic equipment I was able to lay over the 2 bikes showing that the motor will indeed fit.



And the RM ready to be stripped of all things yellow.

I'm tired of watching...I think i have one fast lap in me, jumps aside..I've become friends with a kid who races and shoots video and his father is riding a KTM 150 XC and I may bring a helmet to the next open practice. I'm dying to ride one of those and he's offered me a ride. But I'd be all over riding any thumper/twin shock you come up with as long as it's loud.

sad to hear about the old cases spinning bearings but I guess it's to be expected given those rpm's and 30 years! this was in the bike show last year at Unadilla VMX. Supposedly Rick Johnson's bike that he won some big 4 stroke national championship race on in mid 80's.

I'm sure you know but the 2014 Yamaha 250F has gone with the rear slanted cylinder and exhaust like its big brother 450.

Yep! One of my riding buddies put a deposit on one but got tired of waiting and picked up a 13 like mine.....he loves it so far!!

I just happen to have the exhaust off of a 09 CRF 250 in my garage and don't think it will really affect the handling but sure will look cool!!!

they really upped the ante with the engine config and the FI. I also read that per Yamaha they didn't "jump on the airfork bandwagon" and have stayed with conventional forks. if you do a twin shock twin exhaust you'll have s big time wow factor. they seem to fit perfectly on the bike in the mock up.

It actually is pretty close but until I get the motor set I won't know.....

I guess maintenance wasn't high on the list for the XR owner,



Frame was broken at a motor mount as well,



Started to strip er down,



Motor is out!

I put the RM on the lift and test fit the motor, although there is room for it I will have to do quite a bit of fabrication for it to fit.



It appears pretty good!









Now I actually have to fit it in, make sure it is straight and centered as well as fit the carb which does not look good at all for fit and exhaust which seems ok.

Cool, looks good! I guess the carb is pointing at the right frame tube now? Maybe you can fab up an intake to straighten out the carb and bring it in towards the center of the frame.

Yes, the carb is facing right for the frame rail. I have to spend some time aligning the engine and seeing what looks right. It will take some work to make it fit correctly. I am very happy so far!

CAD is for pussies, shims is where its at

After a laser alignment I had to locate the motor for and aft, took awhile but have it pretty close.





Next is some temp motor mounts to secure while I square motor up.



Paper in place,



And template some thin diamond plate for a mock up,
