    I'm looking at a 96 JR270 locally that needs a top end rebuild. Anywhere to get parts for these things?

    It will be work every time you need parts for it. But with any trials bike you won't be able to just surf the internet and find parts and accessories like for other dirt bikes. Many are old school and want you to call tham (crazy I know lol). Message Hoss on here (Jim Snell) I bet he can tell you if that bike is "safe" to buy or if you should walk away. Don't just be lured in by a cheap price. Do some research. Good luck.

    Thanks. It was sold. I found that it's $650 for the top end rebuild kit. That would have put me over $1500 in it. If I'm going to spend $1500, I'll spend $3K and get something in the 2000s. The search continues.

    FYI - On older bikes you buy a piston and some gaskets, then send the cylinder for a re-plate. It isn't $650.00.... ($350.00/$400.00 is typical)
    If you want instant gratification you can send your old cylinder "core" to me and I'll send you a reconditioned "matched" cylinder/piston set the same day your core arrives, it isn't $650.00 that way either. My reconditioned cylinder/piston sets include all necessary gaskets and o-rings and a squish diagram.
    We've done hundreds of them for 25 years with great success. We use U.S. Chrome of Wisconsin, Millennium Plating is another good source for re-plates of Nikasil cylinders.

    The 1996/97 rear fenders are about gone, and it seems the mold no longer exists. That is a genuine bummer and an opportunity for someone to make a new mold and start reproducing them.
    All other parts for 1996/97 bikes have so far not been a problem I am incredibly well-stocked on engine, chassis, and suspension parts for this era of GG bikes.

    Thanks, Hoss. I contacted 2 of the businesses (dealers) on your site and was quoted $650.

    I'll just put it here. 2012 GasGas 300 pro. Not mine. Clutch fluid leaking into clutch case. Is this an o-ring fix?
