I like your silencer, it's the same one I used.
Perhaps I have a dirt bike addiction?

Lol... I have no idea yet...
I'm sure it will be fine... I hope..
Actually, I saw a pic of another 2016 that they mounted the engine much higher in the chassis then mine.'So I think I'm ok..

But this is a issue..



Jason and I had a discussion about a week ago about using a KTM 380 boot...
Jason thought it would work.
I told him he was crazy.
Well... He is crazy like a fox..
A few fudges and tweeks and in it went  8-)

Oh yeah.... That's a major hurtle out of the way.



We are going to re-use the stock motor mounts for that factory look.
We had to re-locate them but they will work great with just minimal trimming..

Are you going to paint/powdercoat the frame back gray or orange?

What could be better then a modern chassis waiting for a 2T transplant?
That's right.... Two modern chassis waiting for a 2T transplant  :-o



Just about have it all crated up and sending it to my buddy Adam up in the great land of Canadia  8-)



He will be putting in one of those pink bike engines...
So, I'm wrapping it up with this wall paper  :lol:  :-D  :evil:

Nope, they are identical chassis 250 sx-f 2016.
It will make phase 2 very interesting...  8-)

Ok... I did a bit of work on the head stays tonight.
We are using a set of offset brackets so that we have more room over the carb.
We may be doing a bit of experimentation with carbs so I don't want any issues  :-o

Ok, Adam's bike is on it's way...



I've been working on getting the caliper prepped for the anodizer.
The better the polish the better the finish..
As you can see I have a ways to go..

Some parts for the KTM only come in Pumpkin hide or black..
So, I blew the pumpkin hide right off this brake cooler with the vapor blaster..

I've been playing with Microsoft Paint trying to come up with a color scheme that I like.
Something like this is what I'm thinking..
