Good plan Newb,

I have a '95 which is a reliable bike......now. Took a lot of work to get it there.
I started at front end with forks changing seals & oil, greasing headstock, new wheel bearings, tyre, tube rim tape, brakes.

Then went to back, wheel bearings stripped out swing arm, replaced bushes & seals a/r, chain & sprockets, silver smoothrite sw/arm, tyre, rim clamp, tube, rim tape, brakes.

Enough for now, don't want put ya off. You'd best start at back end to sort whatever is bent there before spending loadsa dosh.

Good luck

Thanks Paul, yeah can't wait to get started! As a bonus the guys just put 2 new tyres and tubes on it! So a few dollars saved! I'll strip off the fairings and take a measurement, I figure a long bar through the frame and a bit of a heave should bring it square (he hopes)!

Started stripping the 225. Found a couple of surprises so far but nothing major... Yet! The frame is bent, but a smack with a persuader should do it!

And also the carb wasn't properly inserted into the rubber boot, and was rubbing on the frame! No wonder its a bit dicky sometimes!

Haha if it's lucky I'll run a rag over it before I put it back together! I'll start another thread over in scratched knuckles now regarding the repairs...
