Great shot of Walter Kalberer, he was my childhood hero on the huskies( many times swiss champion), later became  a mentor and good friend . Only passed away too early . Thank you for that shot . Could be one of the last shots on a bike with him . .

The base material used is C45 and using toothpaste for the lapping  . I have done one pair and tested with 2 meter of gravity from a auxiliary tank , still using the old needles . All good . I will do the spare pair next week . Once done and tested I can lend you the tool. I will hydro blast all four carbs , give them another touch up with the tool and then fit the new needles . They will be like new (I hope) and should be fine for another 20 years or so .

Thanks for that , yes Hoony, if you could scan the carby page with the Honda part numbers that would be great . Although lapping the seat fixed the leak for now , I will get two new viton tipped needles . At 34 Euro each they are not cheap , but at least that is a possibility to get some..Lets see what the availability is for  OEM .

I made a lapping tool , used 1 micron paste and lapped the seat in . It is now sealing, even  with the old needles !  I will get new needles and then it should be 100 %  . Now the original  well performing setup is saved.

I have found fitting new ones fixes this issue. A bit like shock absorbers.

Thank you for your valued input .  However this bike ,due to its value must keep the original configuration . So back to the original question . Can that seat be removed ? Would someone have a part list or link to the CR 250 1986 carby ?

I have 2 Keihin 36 mm flat slides on my bike . I think they were made in 1986 .(Same as Honda CR 250)   Both of them are not shutting off and the fuel overflows. I am trying to remove the seats to either remachine or replace them . . Is there a trick or special tool to get them out ? Are they screwed in or pressed in ?

Tech Talk / Rejuvenating stickers
« on: January 16, 2019, 07:31:46 AM »
Has anyone experience how to rejuvenate old  new stock stickers . I finally got around to bring my EML Jumbo upstairs in to daylight , because it will be used for a event on easter. I have new plastics and tank to go on and a sticker kit that has been stored . I only have one kit that I bought in 88. It has gone hard a bit . Is there a proven way to prepare them before applying ?

I dont know what bike its off? Maybe the purch is worth something to the right person?

Correct . A H1 69 model original  purge like that would fetch $120 just like that . Unfortunately it does not have the hole for the mirror , otherwise it would be very very close . Or close enough for my project bike anyway .

Merry -mas . It has been a mixed year . Older classes and bikes dwindled in racing  and new modern classes have been created to compensate (I believe pre 2000 or 2005 is about to become  reality ;D)  . Prices for pre 80 VMX bikes have now become much more affordable , if you collect them that is . Old Enduro and road bikes show nice increases in value for whatever reasons.Could be due to their usefulness and  classic registration perhaps.There was  also a couple of "classic reproduction "attempts by Kawasaki  and Yamaha , lets see how that will turn out in numbers sold.Yes the sky hasn't fallen in (yet), but things in VMX certainly have changed alot since the turn of the century. Merry X-mas to you all .

Looks pretty solid to me . Cheaper to buy another swingarm , I think.

Wurth sells an amazing heat shrink . It goes from a generous 20 mm down 8 mm and still stays nice and flexible .
