    Hello my friend , you know if the rear shock is rebuildable or maybe a shock off another bike?the front forks maybe thicker oil, spacersfor a lil.more preload ? I heard someone installed a reservoir on the stock rear shock. Also one question guy on putting the 350 piston & barrel on the 250 i understand I'll need to increase the rod pin dia. By 1 mm. Correct? I truly appreciate your assistance in this project.

    Thanks again guy lr . What do you think about advantage parts they have a kit87-1996 comes with piston,barrel,head & gaskets etc. Very reasonable price. I think all I need except carb & cam. Would the yzf350 carb rejetted perform well or should I consideter something larger? It's good to use some ones experience to help others not make the same mistaks others have made. [emoji4] .

    Thanks again for the info . Just wondering how you came up with 357cc ? Does the yzf 400 barrel & piston fit ? I'm trying to build a duel purpose bike that's fun to ride on & off the road . Even an occasional run on the freeway . I do enjoy doing an occasional wheelie.ill go with a wiesco piston 10.5 - 11.0 compression. Bigger valves,I w/aftermarket cam make my own exhaust any recommendations for a carb.

    I want to thank you very much Guy for the quick response quick response, & great info. Ya I think 350cc would be great .I agree that many cc's would definitely need larger valves . As they say "If it flows it goes" I agree... I worked late today.family night I'll get back to you tomorrow. What do you suggest for a cam ?
