Measure the bores for roundness and if in spec you are gold! Wish I could find and old Yamaha 2 cyl 2 stroke for the next build.

I found a local one-man shop that reground the valve seats (total eight) for my GL1000 in 10 minutes for 10 dollars US. Walked in, asked if he could do it and work it in, he asked if I had them with me, I went to the truck and brought them in (might have helped that they were sparkly clean). He refused any more. Even reground an old intake and exhaust valve to check the seal.

Good old boys are hard to find, nice one.

I chanced upon this 200 twin on a motorcycle Facebook group, found a good few other items that way, rather than venturing into the murky depths of fleabay and it rogues.

CB200 tank in good nick with chrome gas cap and trim 60.
Micron expansion chamber exhausts in good nick (needing a clean) with barrel clamps 80

Thanks for checking in

Honing kit incoming.....




I didn't buy the 8 kit as I thought this one might work better and last longer...anyone with experience?

My bargin barrel (as it's now known) looked nasty in the images, but that was protective wax, it cleaned up a bloody treat, better than my existing one. Possibly get away with a thorough honing instead of a rebore, which would be a complete result.

Ebay 'best offer' 26 delivered. Can't complain.

Thought it might come in handy at some point  :)

Boring post I know, but as I'm documenting the process this is required...thanks for putting up with it....interesting stuff will happen, I promise heheh.

Bought this last night....



..barrel with carb intakes for the price of intakes alone....gotta be worth having a spare barrel, right?

Update on this barrel. It did look nasty in this image, but it was protective wax and cleaned off to reveal bores in very good condition. Some light marks below the piston ring line but no noticeable wear.



The carb inlets cleaned up real nice and I'll be using this barrel as the existing barrel had two stripped exhaust stud threads and needed a rebore.

So my 30 just might've saved me 170. + 25 for inlets ;)

Honing kit used tonight, barrel/bores looking OK I reckon. Not perfect but they should do if pistons measure up to fit.

Also, the loom has been trialed and all appears to be in order. Connected the major components such as regulator, spark box, coil pack, indicator relay.....I'm sure I (my son) can adapt to suit the 400/4 frame and bar controls too.




In other news...I've temp fitted the front disc to wheel and wheel to forks as I need a suitable caliper......anyone advise please?

Clearance between mount and disc = 20mm.





Mount to mount dimension - 60mm



I really like Yamaha calipers with the anodised star piston design, I wonder if they could be made to fit?

Blimey it very quiet in here these day...where is everyone....out riding? :)

A quick mock up of the Microns on the engine, just to see if they sit right....very pleased :)







Judging by the lay out and length of the engine, that'll place the rear mounting tab somewhere close to the rear peg mount as a convenient location I reckon.

Liking the way they fit and look...fat expansion pipes in stove enamelled black will go nice with a glass blasted engine with black detailing.

Spoke to a local blaster & powdercoater today, 50 for each alloy wheel in appliance white, 80 to blast and powder the frame and the same for the tank too. The white will have a RAL number so I can have the plastic guards 2packed in the same shade of washing machine white ;)

Engine will be glass blasted which leaves a nice natural finish he tells me....liking the sound of that :)
