SR 250 Mono Build
« on: Oct 23, 2018, 11:45:18 »
Had this in the Bobber section, but going more tracker style now. First Build and am beyond stoked to find this site!!!
Picked up this Jammer non running for $175 on craigslist in Denver! Guy was selling it for a friend that had moved. So he knew nothing about it.

Speeding up I cleaned the carb checked the top end out and got it fired up and rode it. Didn't bother tuning just wanted to make sure it ran before I started chopping. I've got it down to the frame after a few weeks with no time to work on it got it ready to fab up the new sub frame.

Nice, welcome to the madness. You cant go wrong with a $175 sr250. Glad to have you here and looking forward to seeing your progress.

also, little tip, when you go to weld your subframe and other bits up to the frame, id recommend bolting the engine back in as it is a stressed member, aka a structural part of the bike. It will help keep things from pulling and warping during welding.

So as I am a poor 27 year old. I have ordered seat loop and rear shock from China. Will take a bit to get here, while I wait I am learning to Tig weld. Plan on Mig welding the sub frame but was inspired by Jadus on here who relocated his battery and solenoid. Making mine a tray but my Tig skills are not there haha.

I bought a 4 cell lithium battery, am a little worried its not going to have the power to start the bike once the headlight and tail light are hooked up. As my little SR doesn't have a kicker. Any one on here run a small battery on a bike with out a Kicker?

Too bad you've already ordered the frame hoop. I've used hoops from Old Man Motors (US based). Prices are good and delivery is within days.

I run a ballistic 4 cell on my SR250. No issues with cranking it over when everything is working right.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
