Title: Now You're Gonna Get It... Bobby! SR250
Post by: DesmoBro on Nov 28, 2012, 16:34:59
so this build came to me from stuff i had lying around.( TRADED  a few things i wasn't using for a plainer joiner i didn't use then traded that for this titled Yamaha SR 250 bobber stepchild of thing).....So the plan is to get it together, running ok, then pull it apart and paint it. I also hope to re purpose somethings in the process.....anyone got 2 cents on which tank I should use??? Don't really have many options but i'll show u what i got for now

Nice timing vander....Today...Well Yesterday now....I BRIBED a buddy of mine to come over and help with the wiring....for some reason if I look at a wiring diagram my brain explodes....I went out and got a second starter solenoid from a used bike turns out I had it ASS backwards and thats why it wouldnt work....My buddy figured it out like it was nothing....Now I need a battery that fits,clutch return spring, and possibly a cable or 2 but i'm closer than ever on it ....Now my biggest concern is which tank to slap on it....the XL sportster tank needs a new tunnel to fit right the lil zookie tank fits like a charm tho but looks a bit weird ....more pictures soon I promise
Title: Re: Now You're Gonna Get It... Bobby!
Post by: Brodie on Feb 17, 2013, 19:42:32
I think the sportster tank has more of a bobber look but the Zuki tank would look rad. Any mock pictures of them?

a special place in hell is reserved for those who put sprung seats on their swingarm bikes. Other then that I like it all so far.

yea it looks a bit off....but it came to me this way only as a pile ....Maybe I will change the seat out but it has to run first

Think that's in Leviticus, right? :)

Post by: Brodie on Mar 09, 2013, 09:06:01
I think there is too much of a gap between the suzuki tank and the seat but the other looks a little tall.
Have you decided on which tank you are going to use?

As for the spark check the safety relay as I had problems with mine and made a jumper to replace it.

searching for a regular sportster tank the one i have is an XL ...I'm also looking for a dirt bike header so I can mount the pipe up high in the rear.... i also took them springs off the seat
Title: Re: Now You're Gonna Get It... Bobby!
Post by: Brodie on Apr 14, 2013, 00:09:25
Check out the Yamaha XT250 and TT250 should be able to get a header from them.

Title: Re: Now You're Gonna Get It... Bobby!
Post by: Brodie on Apr 23, 2013, 01:16:56
That just sounds like a horrific way to tie down a bike.

What is your next move for this bike. Maybe with the funds you could grab the tank you want.
Title: Re: Now You're Gonna Get It... Bobby!
Post by: DesmoBro on Apr 23, 2013, 17:27:12
Good Call Man....That reminds me I should Try and trade off this Huge Tank for the one I need....In the mean time I promised my self I would
Weld the mounting bracket for coil
Cut and Weld the New Header I got 4 ($20)
buy the adapter pipe to fit the Harley muffler to the
Mount the heat guard on the Muffler
Run the Wiring and figure out where to mount the stuff
Make and weld Gussets to the frame
Man up and extend the Wire thats attached to the clutch lever to make this Jockey Shift(which is going to be Bad@$$)
gonna put the computer away now and actually do what I should have done by now...pictures soon

Post by: Brodie on Apr 27, 2013, 00:08:09
Looking good. Is that header from a tt250?
Title: Re: Now You're Gonna Get It... Bobby!
Post by: DesmoBro on Apr 27, 2013, 00:31:16
No clue what it's from...... it was miraculously at the bottom of a bin of headers almost gave up and spent big on a craigslist header but WAM BAM THANK YOUUU MAM... guy let it fly for $20 ....I just welded it all together (except the muffler).....soo much cooler than the OG header...i'm stoked maybe i'll whip together that jockey shift sometime over the weekend....some more welding and grinding needs to be done to the frame as well
Title: Re: Now You're Gonna Get It... Bobby!
Post by: DesmoBro on May 20, 2013, 20:40:38
I think I may have forgotten an update....I bought another peanut tank this one has an air craft bung welded on it. I also picked up a CBR tank to rob the cap and Bung from....need to find a good lock smith to make me a key for it as well....still pretty hyped up about the exhaust 2

As mentioned before...

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DONT RUN A SPRUNG SOLO SEAT ON A BIKE WITH REAR SUSPENSION.

Haha. Seriously man.

Also, if you want to part with that King Sporty tank... Shoot me a PM with a price.

Keep at it man. Tons of potential to be an AWESOME little scoot.
Title: Re: Now You're Gonna Get It... Bobby!
Post by: Brodie on May 20, 2013, 22:15:26
Well that answers the exhaust question. Thanks Von. Also damn that DT is nice.

Not sure about the flames on the tank but I do like the CBR cap idea. Keep up the work mate!
Title: Re: Now You're Gonna Get It... Bobby!
Post by: DesmoBro on May 20, 2013, 22:55:53
Von i'm sure we can work out a trade on that tank (check out the exhaust pics the seat springs are gone)....and the header is different than the DT250 but the heat shield is off a DT1....I grabbed it because it said 250 hopefully now I won't get asked 100 times what size it is....Might get a few days off work this week and next so i should have some time to throw at this

Back in the beginning of this build I said I was going to try and re purpose a few things and use them on this bike....Also not trying to just Slap some random crap all over it (like I may or may not have with other bikes)....But as I strolled through my Local department store (scrap yard) I saw this Piece of rust(40's chevy truck) I went over to it and kind of Shook it and a Smaller Cooler piece of Rust fell off(Head Light with Marker)....I may Use it as a fender(already stuffed it in there)...crappy pics I kno but what do ya think?
Title: Re: Now You're Gonna Get It... Bobby!
Post by: Maritime on Jun 26, 2013, 10:25:35
That's kind of cool, you could use the space where the headlight was to box in to hide electrics or a tool pouch or something.
Title: Re: Now You're Gonna Get It... Bobby!
Post by: DesmoBro on Jun 26, 2013, 11:14:49
Thanks Man...first I was thinking I might have to butcher the whole thing But i may be able to notch it out get it to fit a little better cut a circle piece of diamond plate and run with it....still seems a bit random but the stuff was as close to free as you can get i'm lucky I found it!...not sure if it will flow well with the exhaust...it's still up in the air If I can find a Big Ass Front Fender I could make it a headlight again... IDK what i'm doing...nothing has changed
Title: Re: Now You're Gonna Get It... Bobby!
Post by: DesmoBro on Oct 03, 2013, 15:25:49

Wonder if an RD motor would fit into that frame...
Title: Re: Now You're Gonna Get It... Bobby!
Post by: DesmoBro on Oct 03, 2013, 21:29:55

I think that place in hell is right next to the place reserved for those who put hardtails on modern bikes -- just my opinion, of course!

I kept tripping over the SR since i left it in pieces on the floor .....then i try adding a monoshock to it and cant even mock it up because it kept falling over ..... So i stopped complaining and started building

....gonna toss the mono idea aside and just build this up with xs1100 parts i have to move this along tired of not riding it......cleaning the motor.....
Title: Re: Now You're Gonna Get It... Bobby!
Post by: DesmoBro on Nov 19, 2015, 12:11:15
Mocked up this xs1100 big tank ive always wanted a nice big tank on a small cc bike so i can get some nice range should be over 300 miles with this tank and the SR 250 motor...now with the twin rear shocks i may need to modify the modified exhaust again....hoping to get this welded and possibly the motor back in the frame today will update if it goes anywhere.

....after looking at it for 2 years ....i only had to buy like 20 $100 project bikes before i was able to guster the muster and spend money on some new parts for this bike....new chain, new AGM battery ( probably too small), new fuel line, some T fittings, a box of hose clamps, built a battery box with 2 pieces of angle iron and 2 bolts....welded 2 nuts on the frame and was able to mount the battery box using the bolts it was made from.....i added gas and this lil fucker ran....but it was getting dark so more pictures in like at least another 2 years....

Had to weld the gas tank not sure if it will hold fuel yet ....also have to make mounts for the seat again since the first ones i made didnt account for the xs1100 gas tank....made a muffler guard hopefully it works good.....i also need to mount the rear fender, tail light and turn signals....my brother found a broken tail light in the street so i took the LED part out and mounted it into a moto tail light i had I hope i can figure out the wiring on it but so far so good...
