1978.5 RM250 w/ complete Race Tech suspension
« on: November 24, 2013, 10:39:02 AM »
I'm going to be focusing more on the Ultima II bikes next year and with doing the points and such it's difficult to race two classes.  So I am going to sell my 78.5 RM 250.  I sent the forks off to Race Tech last year for a complete make over with gold valves and sprung for a 190lb rider.  I also had a set of G3-S shocks custom built for the bike with rebound adjusters and dual rate springs.  They are also sprung for a 190lb rider. I also installed modern YZ footpegs with new, more solid mounts. I put a new top end on it last season and resealed the entire engine with new seals and gaskets. The tires are pretty good.  The bike runs like a champ!  Starts right up every time.  Figured I'd post it up here before putting it on Ebay (which I will be doing very soon)  I'd like to get more out of it, but I'll put it up here for $2100. The suspension was EXPENSIVE.  I still have the build sheets for them.
