    2 strokes can seize, and unseize with what seems like no drama, but a lot of times, the rings stick in the pistons, so the bikes will not make good compression, i would pull the top end off and check it out. also, crankshaft seals are a likely cause for seizure, and its an absolute bitch to do them. especially the one in between the 2 cylinders, so be ready for that.

    Going to try and get her started first. I don't mind going through the motor down the line, but there's 150 points up for grabs for the first one who starts their bike.

    Ya think so eh?

    I told him not to set the timing at 2mm. And then try and keep up with my 350 in the twisties. Oops.

    Running means start it up and ride away. Of course aside from any legal technicalities.

    DAMNIT. I was going to follow Al Tuna's advice and blow myself up trying to get a quick 150 points. Looks like I'll need to address the brakes first :dog


    Thank you kind sir! :freaky
    I feel like it might take a bit, but at some point we've got to see
    who's is best off road, or maybe a hill climb or somehting.
    I'm sure we'll be calling on ya!


    Whoot! Alright, one for everybody. :clap


    Now I'm a little curious as to why,
    from 1970-70 the 250s and 350s have the same manual and
    from 1965-1979 the 250s and 400s and lumped together.
    :dunno

    Drum brakes suck but are easy to repair.

    And aftermarket manuals are made to confuse and sell parts.

    Tell me about it!
    God damn, $40 a caliper for a rebuild kit which doesn't include a piston (am I going to need a new one?)
    $60 for pads
    Rear MC kit is $89
    Front MC is $85 but shit!
    Do I really have to spend like $300 just to get the brakes in order?!




    I wanted an RZ for soooo long.
    Finally figured I'd have more fun hopping up an RD. :evil
