The disc front end will have to go if its an 84 model bike and you want to race in pr85 class. And if it does happen to be the ultra rare 85 model 500 well that is out for pre 85 too.
. Front disc should be legal Pre85  on a RM500. 84 TS250 ran a disc.

What is the disc brake front end off?  If it is off a 84 Honda or Kawasaki it might be legal.  To use a TS 250 front disc brake you would have to use the TS forks and I don't think you would want to do that.  Also it is just the disc brake what are the forks off.  Remember the onus of proof rests with the bike owner.
Why would you have to use the TS250 forks Kevin?

Anyone know of a strip about 1.5 km long (prefer slightly uphill) where l can run a few plug-chops on my Honda CR500, without annoying cops or nearby residents?  Within 1 1/2 hours drive of Ballan (Vic) would be great.

Ive lifted the clip 80-85 husky . Im running a DT400 cdi system Momus . the same system that was in her b4 the rebuild .

Ok. Perhaps put a timing light on it and check not advanced or if the header is hot, retarded. I have had some recent fun and games with early Yamaha CDI.

I'd go with Mick's suggestion. I've had good experience with Loctite retaining compound in all sorts of similar situations. Plenty of engines with cast in iron or steel housings and assemblies have none or almost no nip.

When the bike is running the mains will warm up and the changing difference in fit- assuming an aluminium case- will not be much at all.

If the Loctite is not satisfactory you can sleeve it; if it is good you have saved a lot of time and mucking about.

This is the P/N 81/84 CR125 rod that is used as a replacement.

The crankpin is 22 mm versus the 20 mm of the original so some machining is necessary

Easy enough to get them made and rings and pin supplied if you contact Wossner in the US.

ive had a ton of issues over the years with the points on those things, look again at them..

Any up and down movement- wear- of the advance mechanism, or shudder, the cam will make life hard for the points.
