Hello all, I am considering upgrading to a WORKS suspension emulator upgrade for the KYB forks and WORKS adjustable shocks.  Anyone familiar with this mod?  Is it worth the dough?Beau   Continue

 Hi Dave and welcome. Wow  she is sweet looks great. Nice resto. I have a 1978 RM400 which is close to being finished with the intention of racing it in the Evo class.

Hi Evo Lovers, new member to the group and just wanted to post a pic of my 79 RM250 that I have just finished a full resto on.  The bike belonged to my Sister's brother in law and had been parked in their packing shed for 25 odd years. It would have been criminal to leave it there to rot away as it was all complete and just needed someone to give it some TLC.

Evo is the hardest to define if you want to talk in year cut offs. I think that is why its called evo and not pre what ever. This is due to the jap bikes going to single shock early and the euro's lagging behind and staying twin shock. The Husky goes up to and including an '84 model, the Maico is '81but the japs go to the '80 model. So if it has two shocks and is later than a '77 , then it's an evo. Plus all of the other criteria of course.

Hi Beau
The rm looks good already. I am not obsessive with detail but White Knight Rust Guard Epoxy Enamel in Satin Black looks smiko on the cases . Spray cans 10 $ at bunnings. Resists rubbing well to.
Holts Duplicolor Toyota Dark Silver is bang on for the triple clamps and other silver bits( brake arm ). VHT high temp Full Matt for the pipe.
