That 89 CR looks awesome mxracer515. I bet with the RM conventional forks it performs as well as it looks! Thanks for sharing!

I'd love to hear how yours turn out also Sandman768!

Thanks Greg, appreciate the reply. I think they'll be sweet also. I'm just trying to decide which project to use mine on. I'm kinda like a kid in a candy store 🤣

Greg, were you ever able to get the RM conventional forks fit to your CR250? I have a set of '98 conventional Showas that I'm considering using on a project. I wonder how they turned out for you.. Thanks! Brian

There could be a bit of a hanging idle there. I think the main cause for a hanging idle is generally a lean pilot jet. You might play with the air screw or put in a bigger pilot jet and see how it does. Coming along nicely!

Hey Lasse, I've seen where guys take a heat gun and move the heat back and forth carefully to get the surface of plastic to shine again. I've been thinking of picking up a heat gun myself to try this method.. I think you'd need to have all of your sanding ... more »

Thanks for the update. I'm sure a good clutch basket will turn up sooner or later. However, if you don't find one, I saw a video where a guy in Australia machined the grooves out of his clutch basket when he was restoring a 1992 RM 250. Here is a link ... more »

Progress is looking fantastic! Also, I picked up a Fast By Ferracci bar riser for my '92 Husqvarna 360 Wpark89. Thanks for the tip!

I'm new here to Vital but have a couple old Italian Husqvarna 360s. Love the Huskys from this era and will really enjoy seeing your progress here. Keep up the great work!

I am working on a 1985 KTM 250mx resto-mod and would be interested in that pipe F150Motocrosser if you are still considering selling it.. I sent you a PM. Really cool thread jt.hagerty!

Hey TooOld4FWO, Did you use EVO-MX graphics on your 1990 300? I have a 1990 300MXC (among many other 80's and 90's KTMS, a couple Italian Husqvarnas and a few 90's RM's) and am looking at putting on their Tank/Shroud graphics, where the tank graphics ... more »
