Kit fitted but should they protrude like this? I can’t remember what they where like when I took them off 

Top one not as bad but then the cap is raised more

Nortz, i think those bushings should sit flush? The cover keeps out water and mung, you might have the wrong part, there...

Dry assembly with no internals and new bottom cases. Going to sandblast complete like this. Need to see what’s under the JB weld on the barrel!!!

Nortz, take each compoent apart to be sand blasted, remove all seals, and bearings, and do each of the parts seperatly. don let any over blast go into a bore or a screw hole. mask every thing off..Media blasting is much gentler...

Thanks Brother! It's looking mighty fine. Nothing like a clean, alloy swing arm, those decals look the part. Looking good!🤠

If you soda blast, just soak the parts in water when done. The soda dissolves. Great for doing carburetors.

I looked at soda blasting but I need to use 100 Grit for the Cerakote to take properly.

100 Grit is super fine so it wont leave big pit marks and the entire engine is stripped out. No bearings in it even so clean up wont be an issue. I'll blank everything off before i do it anyway just to help and prevent damage to exposed oil seal areas etc.

no, I think that's correct.

Thanks. Looking at the diagrams it doesnt show any but common sense would suggest maybe there should be some especially given the shaping of the arm on the inside.

Wow Thanks for the pics. You also have the protruding internal which makes me happy.

I had the 82, 85, 82, and 89 250R's, and all of em had a little difference in their looks and layout. 86's main mission was to de-tune that explosive 85 power out put, by placing the mighty honda power port valve, and change up the port timing. It was a dam good bike, until 1987,,,

Nope. I looked at my pics of mine as it came home from the showroom. The outline should be blue. Your research is flawed. Keep googling. The correct stickers are available on Ebay. Sorry.
