The Saga begins...

Today the LT 250 "definately a four-stroke, definately a four-stroke" (spoken like like Raymond from "Rainman") began its transformation from abused and ignored ATV to superquad. I titsed out the airbox (so clean you could eat Surgar pops out of it), cleaned, oiled and installed the air filter. Reinstalled the rear caliper with new kevlor brake pads (after cleaning up the caliper as best I could, lots of rust on this bike making assembly very.....tedious). Unfortunately, no e-brake cable in this universe. As you all have hit on this bike was only made in 1989 and 1990 so it is a hard one to find parts for. I cleaned the front of the head off from where the poor thing was spitting oil from the exhaust due to the air filter being saturated with oil. Lets see...new plug and Vrroooom first kick. Then set the idle and she sat there and ran for a 1/2 an hour. I wish I could of got the cable then I would be riding. Rest of the afternoon spent lubing the cables and zip tieing them off the steering shaft (where they had been rubbing since May of 1989). New blue Scott grips (glued and safety wired) and I found a nice blue "De-Bruiser" crossbar pad in the clearence box at 50% off so its on there too. I also relocated the decompressor lver from the top of the bars to the underside so you can reach it with your left thumb. Tomorrow, there will be more of our local shops open so hopefully I can get the cable. I want to hurry up with this one as it's the Warrior that I am going to keep and trick abit.

Later,

Lo in Oregon
