    Paioli fork seal help needed

    I will have to check the seal sizes, info. With the holidays and it being so wet here in Houston, I have not been too motivated to tear this thing down. I will check and get back. If there is a common seal kit for this thing, that would be a huge change for this bike. A welcome one at that.

    VOR Mechanic Houston/ Switch to Keihin

    Did you have any luck finding a decent mechanic to work on your VOR? I live in Houston as well and never really found anybody that knew anything about these bikes. I have been out of riding for about a year but about to get back into it and need someone that knows about VOR to do some work for me.

    Paioli fork seal help needed

    Thanks for the info guys, I will try the 35mm film first. I have tools and work on my bike, but I have never done any forks/shocks before and don't have the proper tools. I will most likely just take them to a local shop and have it done there if need be. I will order the parts myself, but I don't know what to even order. Anyone have any suggestions on the parts I would need. Part numbers would rock! Thanks for all your help.

    Paioli fork seal help needed

    I have a 2000 MX 503 that one of the fork seals are leaking a bit.I have not torn into the fork, and may not do it myself, so I am not sure what I would need, or what to look for. Anyone have any experience doing a fork rebuild that can help me out, I would apprecitae it. The bike has been sitting for a while and I about to take the black beast out for a run.

    Turning 2000 503MX into a SM...?

    Wanting to do more than just be street legal. Wanting to ride a little more aggressive on the street. Anybody know if you need a metal tank for DOT in Texas?

    Turning 2000 503MX into a SM...?

    What parts would I need to do to make my 2000 MX503 into a street legal SM style bike? Wheels, tires, Lowered suspension, bigger from brakes, blinkers, lights, ETC. I live in Texas for DMV info. I never get to ride this thing in the dirt anymore so I was curious what all would be involved. Anybody have a old SM with a bad engine, where I could just swap the engine out? I could put it back in the MX frame when I want to ride dirt! I hate that this thing sits in the garage collecting dust.

    It actually is. It is in the Sam Houston National Forest just north of Houston, in New Waverly.

    Do these bearings all come out from ONE side?

    How to you get the shroud bolt out of tank?

    I bought the bike used, and every single one is like this. Oh, well. I will know to look for it on the next bike.

    How to you get the shroud bolt out of tank?

    After closer inspection, I don't think this will work. The clearance is not enough to get the adhesive in there. The plastic comes right up to the bolt. I would end up just adhering the bolt to the nut. I guess I will have to grind of part of the bolt head and try to get the glue in that way...? I tried every bolt in the tank and they ALL spin, what gives?
