Husqvarna WR250 | Motor Breakdown

Due to the stuck crank and the sick smell of mouse piss coming from the motor I decided it was necessary to split the cases to clean and inspect everything. I was happy to find that all the internals appear to be in good condition after a good cleaning. The stuck crank seems to just […]

Ghetto Bird vs Cool Guy in Philadelphia

120+ mph on Kelly Drive. Don’t know who this dude is but there has to be more to the story of why the ghetto bird was after him. I doubt it was for going 60mph on Kelly just before stopping at the gas station. If you don’t recognize it, he starts out at the intersection […]

I picked this up last summer in a box. It was cheap enough to take a chance on getting it back together. So far the bad consists of: – Broken tap in the shock mount – Missing some parts (fork internals, oem headlight) – Some really crappy repairs on the frame and motor – Cylinder […]

KZ750 530 Chain Conversion

Late model KZ650’s and all KZ750’s came stock with 630 chains. Converting to a 530 chain has a few benefits like being more readily available, cheaper, and lighter than 630 chains. Even modern Kawasaki’s like the ZX10R which is 1000cc, 190+ hp, and 80+ ft lbs of torque use 530 chains. 1980 KZ750 Stock: Front/Rear: […]
