That looks to be an excellent find, mate.

Will watch your Adventure Conversion with great interest.

I’ve done a bunch of Adventure Rides on my TTR and haven’t Retired yet but notice that 250cc bikes seem to be a popular choice these days. When you come across fellow Adventurers on big 1200cc bikes you wonder how they pick them up when they “topple over.” Some of these people are old’ish and short’ish.

My wife and I regularly watch Itchy Boots on Youtube (currently the Ultimate Adventure Rider) and she has moved to a 250 for the same reason as above.

Cheers

Jeff

Replaced the OEM front tyre & gave the fron end a full service & clean, installed the harness for the tank bag, & installed a small hard box on the bars that mount my inreach & uhf.

Wow - some clever luggage arrangements there!

You could do a RTW on it now wink  But I think you might struggle on a trials section confuse

Following this with interest, can we have a picture of the hard box you have fixed to the bars and would also like to see how you fix tools to the bash plate. Thanks !

Nice looking lever setup! Hope the 450 m/cylinder works out - what was it like to bleed?

 It was the usual pain to bleed, I like to reverse bleed brakes normally but couldn’t find my kit, so I attempted to just do it normally but was getting so annoyed I ended up taking the setup off the bike to do it. It’s is probably 100% better then stock, still feels a bit spongy but 1 finger for hard braking. I mite get a braded line & see if a 270mm disk can fit
