I am new at this but I have rebuilt my yammy top end and am willing to help anyone out here at the Beach. I am not a pro and this is the only bike ive ever seriously worked on and i am having some trouble after the rebuild but i know her insides better than i know mine and am glad to encourage anyone that wishes to fix their bike. I am fortunate that i met some helpful people here that answered my questions and showed me how to go about this. So if anyone here in Virginia Beach rides and finds themselves in need of someone that can encourage and show them how to tackle that machine, contact me. Wish I knew how to post pics on this forum. I have an 82 sr 250 which i have rebuilt.

Why wasn't this thread started a week ago lol? I have a basic knowledge but probably nothing useful. It would be good though to shadow/observe to learn for myself.

 

Bradford, West Yorkshire

Grouch where you at in Bradford as most of the time I am in BD5 (Odsal area). 

Can do most things, and have a fair amount of tools (3 more toolboxes than the missus said i was allowed). Stumped when it comes to fully butchered electrics, but standard things like engine lifts and splits I'm happy to take a crack at...... though normally pull in my father in law for the gearbox side of things haha.

I'm due a new chain and sprockets set fitting soon could do with someone who knows what they're doing just to make sure I'm doing it properly.
