Dang shame all the old stuff is gone, well here we go. Got this in the OEM blue in Oregon 4 years ago with 12K on the clock. Just flipped 18K. Getting ready to rebuild the top end.

Nice job on the blue to red conversion  nice1

Can the engine repairs wait until winter? Would be tough to not ride with scenery like that around.

Where did you find pistons or are you just doing rings on your top end? I heard they are as rare as my 85 XL350R's??

Just a top end job, have it all just need to pull the trigger but Man I'm having fun on it this Season. Will make the call in a few weeks if I do it.  From what I know, there was only 1 over size piston made for it.

Not been Red in 2 years. Today I pulled carbs to re jet to stock. Found I'd don't it already, PIA.  Guess I'll sell that pipe and jet kit. So today it went back to 85 RED, New fuel sensor O-Ring added.  Won't be going back to it's OEM Blue.

Next a good tooth brush bath, some touch up paint on frame, swing arm and a good buff and wax. Make new paint shine.  I have a few show's to do this year. Keep thinking of selling the whole pile of parts and bike, she just sits as I have 3 street machines to ride.
