    Vancouver Island 1980 Yamaha SR250

    Hey café-ers. I'm in British Columbia, Canada eh.
    I spent last winter tearing down and building this free bike and spent THIS winter tearing down and fine-tuning. She's a lot of fun for all the backroads around here but a little weak for the highways.
    I will be happy to offer any knowledge and pick all your brains too. Cheers

    Front forks are too short.

    ... and the rear sprocket is too big

    I don't think it's stock and it may be the angle of the photo but it looks bigger than stock too me.

    You brought it back from the dead and that's a good thing. Don't ya get road snot spitting all over yer battery and pods and back with no rear fender? What about your brake/shifter location given your bar and seat choice? I'd be hunched up like a dog humping a football. My fenders are full length and I'm thinking about adding an extension to keep shit off the bike. Does your front fender do anything? I'm a chain lubeaholic and without a guard it would be everywhere. Do you notice that happening? I didn't know you could run a bike in Canada with the plate on it like that. I thought they were pretty picky. Great roads out that way. I enjoyed riding them last summer. Beautiful scenery. Ride safe.
    If you can't pick it back up, don't ride it.

    At least it has blinkers and mirrors, more than I can say for some bikes that people have passed through here
