No pics from today.

Got a new decompression cable ran and adjusted, new brake lever installed and also got the new JT steel sprocket on the rear hub.

Ran into some discouraging issues that cut the day ahort but going to try and get more movement as soon as I can.

More parts and the seat is due back from Beard this week.

Have you though about the upgraded 03+ exhaust cam with the auto decomp built in?!

I haven't really. I am still learning about these 400's and didn't want to add more mayhem to my mix.

What is involved with that swap? And/or where do you go about finding one?

This will be one of if not the best mod you could possibly do!

All you need is the exhaust cam the above add is vague about possibly getting both cams

Nice work, the bike looks absolutely beautiful!

Any particular reason you used the blue chain slider, guides, and roller? I'm guessing that it is because they are only offered in blue, but just thought I'd ask.

Thanks for the info! I will look into this once my poor bank account settles down from this build and the bike is riding once again...

For the reason you said. I was actually bummed they didn't have black at first but once they were on, I actually dig the slight hints of blue. I'm going to add a few accents to the front just to tie it all together as well.

Thanks for the compliment!

Good craftsmanship! How much was it for the seat? I am short rider and need a shaved seat and also like how yours turned out.

I will follow your guide for my YZ250F rebuild!! Keep us updated as i am sure there are a few people subscribed.

Here is the write-up. I did my 02 with no regrets.

Ran the coolant lines to the resevoir and buttoned up some more loose ends as far as bolts and such.

Got two more orders coming in this week and next week so I'm hoping that with those two, this thing should be damn near done!!!

Do you mean that you can't remove the nut? Or the actual sprocket? With the chain attached, hold down the rear brake pedal and use a large ratchet/socket to loosen the nut. If it's the sprocket, just tap the top then the bottom, alternating each time, and you should be able to walk it off. Maniac

I was referring to the nut. That thing is ON there.
