brake cables and shoes for old '79 Honda xr250

Recommended Posts

I replaced both brake cables on my '79 XR250 with stock OEM cables.

45450-434-000 - front brake cable

43450-429-000 - rear brake cable

The brake shoes are made by EBC, an aftermarket company.

EBC-312 - front brake shoes

EBC-323 - Rear brake shoes

Try www.bikebandit.com or www.powersportspro.com for the OEM cables, they should have your bike listed in the microfiche section

The cables are out of stock, discontinued by Honda. I tried powersportspro and a local Honda dealer.

Motion Pro says they will have fronts in about a month.

Bike Bandit does not have a fiche on the 79 or 80 xr250

My local Honda shop was able to get shoes for me though. I have my eye on a used F cable. My R is really not that bad, but the front is seized!

Thanks

I have had my local yamaha dealer rebuild a cable for a fairly reasonable price. If you still have the outer casing for the cable most places can put a new wire in it, stamp new ends on it, and it is virtually a whole new cable. that is if you do have those outers and they are in usable shape. :cry:
