Can highly recommend SuperSprox! What a sweet service! Will def use this in the future. The sprocket came in even lighter than expected - at 240g-ish. Decent weight savings here, especially unsprung mass. Now got the rear wheel assembled and ready to go in the frame. I tracked down a decent lightweight, low friction but strong chain as well - after reading a lot about different types. I like the all silver look :D too

I was lucky that I had two decent fork stanchions for this bike - many old SR250 forks get terrible corrosion. There were no issues in the 'working' area of these, however there were a few small rust spots that I wanted to address. I had seen this fix method somewhere online and decided to give it a go myself.

So I sanded back the spots with 400 grit sandpaper, cleaned it with acetone, then filled with a really strong gap filling 2 part epoxy. Then waited for it to harden and sanded it back carefully. It looks like it has worked but I am not certain how long it is going to stay put! Perhaps there is another type of two part epoxy that would have been better suited to this. Oh well, this area of the forks will be covered anyway by the custom headlight brackets - as well as being sealed and water proofed (held in place with orings).

I've never seen that approach tried before. What the heck, looks like it's worth a try, why not? Good luck w/ it.

I measured up the lengths required for the new custom cables I will be ordering - to suit both the lower clip on position and the new brake set up. I have created some drawings for these cables to be able to send to Venhill who make them: https://www.venhill.co.uk/

I have attached the drawings here for others to use (PDFs and JPEGs). Just make sure to measure your own lengths and modify the drawing to reflect that - it is just the 'HOUSING LENGTH' dimension that will need to be change, all other dimensions work with the stock carb, brakes and clutch.
