yeah it flows so much more then a stock silencer its not even funny, it leaned my bike out a bunch.

the head pipe is alot of money and truth be told on the 250 with the dual ex pipes the stock one flows more then enough. its a single cyl / 4 valve motor , has 2 intake ports , and 2 ex ports. i may build one thats 1/8th inch bigger with a nicer merge this winter.

this winter im doing away with the dual carb head , the head im switching to has a single intake port that feed both valves-single carb, but still retians the dual ex valves/ports. of course the head is being ported and im doing a hotcam and forged je piston to bring the compression up, not sure how much of an over bore i might do

heres the stainless head pipe 199$'s
XRs Only Exhaust Header - Honda XR250R (86-UP) Stainless Steel

the only thing thats nice on it is the merge head side is the same size and so is after the merge
for 50 bucks i could build the same thing out of 304 stainless and get a lil larger on the head side with the tubing

Nick and I removed the bad brake lines and wouldn't you know it the longest one to the back needed to be replaced, crap. But we got them all out and the master cyl and will get the new lines tomorrow. I am afraid we won't be able to get pre-made lengths close enough and will need to have someone cut them for me as I don't have the double flair tool.

The photo is of Nick welding the crack in the exhaust that he found. I sure enjoy getting out there with him.

Brian, Most of the auto parts stores have double flaring tools you can borrow. I borrowed one from Auto Zone and liked it well enough I bought it.

Cool, thanks. When I did the Rambler I was able to buy them right off the shelf with just one needing to be shortened and I used my brothers. But it's 90 miles away now.

Nick needs a "Buddy"

You are in earthquake country. I was living in San Martin laying on my bed listening to the world series when the BIG one hit. Another one like that would probably shake a car off the jack stands. Even though we have a lower probability of a big one here I still have a tree stump with a smily face I take under a car with me. a couple rims welded together, something solid.

brake lines

Years ago when I was building my second T bucket I had it on a trailer and took it down to Royal Brass in San Jose and one of the guys did all the measurements, needed then found or made the longer front hoses got everything for me.
and from their website

Royal Brass has two Parker Stores located in San Jose & Santa Clara. Both of
these stores can make hose & tube assemblies while you wait

Or use shorter sections and unions to get the length you need. Nothing wrong with a double flair union in-line...

I use the new copper/nickell brake tubing and you can easily shape it by hand and avoid kinking. It is amazing stuff to work with and flairs much easier with a hand held flaring tool too. I'd let you use my hydraulic flair, but it's a bit of a drive to come get it...

That's what I am going to try to do. I used that line on the Rambler and it was very easy shape and fit.

That is what the wheels under the car are for, they are thinner than him or me.

I didn't enlarge the pict and just saw the 2 tires on the RH side. I have some 2 x12 blocks next to the garage I have to tell the grand kids they cannot use them for the fire pit. I have a friend recovering from some broken ribs, his car came down when he was changing a trans the old tire- rim wasn't enough

Thanks timothale, I'll up the game a bit. I have spent a lot of time with him and the safety stuff. Where to place jack stands, jack, rocking car after it's up to be sure it's steady, I put a LOT of time into safety and it seems to be working. He grabbed a little die grinder for that exhaust pipe and without me saying a thing had his particle mask, goggles, ear protection on.

We have a number of rims, I'll look into welding them together like that.

A big second on this. We in earthquake city too. We had a 7.1 in sept 2010 at 4.30 am in the morning. I woke with my wife grabbing my shoulder screaming what's happening, the noise sounded like a train coming through our bedroom and the violent shaking of our whole house was indescribable. We couldn't do anything because of the force. It went on for about 30 terrifying seconds. I knew what it was , just was waiting on it to stop. As I said you could never believe the forces involved. Don't take chances on going under cars. The second quake we had was 5 months later and killed 180 people. My daughter was in town at the time and told me that night when we were all together, I saw people get killed today dad. She would have been in the area that claimed a few lives, except her neighbour held her up 20 minutes talking to her. There but for the grace of God?

Later gator
