    looks like the early tricolour scheme on the tank as it doesnt have the fire on it. the fairings dont look oem either.. i may be wrong.

    good work cleaning it up!

    I was actually wondering about the tank not having the stripe. The tank is in perfect condition so I don't think it has been resprayed from being dropped.
    The fairings are definitely not OEM. The old owner made an alloy plate to extend one of the mounting holes because the fairings wouldn't line up!!

    Its been great fun cleaning it up. Im getting a bit OCD with everything on the bike though.

    Looking legit man. Can't wait to see the final project. Should look brand new by the looks of things.

    RE: MC22 Aussie Restoration

    So today I thought I would rebuild my front suspension.

    This is my first time, so if anyone can see that I have done it wrong let us know!!

    I have new original seals and replaced the worn guide bushing and pipe bushing.

    So here it goes!

    I had all the parts cleaned in degreaser then once again with brake cleaner to remove any residual degreaser and then left to dry.




    Ipad is really handy to have the repair manual on. You can zoom in on the IPB's and navigate the pages fast.


    New fork pipe bushing.



    Place rebound spring over seat pipe. Then insert into the fork pipe.



    Attach the oil lock piece to the seat pipe.



    Insert the fork pipe to the bottom case.


    Prepare to tighten socket bolt to the seat pipe.

    The torque was 2.0kg-m which is about 14 ft-lb.


    I also used some thread locker to prevent the bolt vibrating loose.



    Wrap the bottom case in cloth and clamp in vice. Tighten bolt to specified torque.


    Slide on the guide bushing and back up ring.


    This is the guide bushing before seated correctly.


    And the guide bushing seated correctly. I used the old bushings stacked on the new one to help fitment. Place on the back up ring next.


    New oil seal. Make sure the manufacturer's name on the seal is facing up.


    Place some tape over the top end of the fork pipe in order to avoid damaging the oil seal lip.


    Slide the oil seal down the fork pipe.


    I placed the old oil seal on top of the new one and used a pvc pipe from bunnings to drive the new seal in place. Drive the seal in far enough, so that it is past the recess in the case for the snap ring.


    Insert the snap ring to the recess of the bottom case.


    Attach the dust seal.


    Fully compress the fork pipe and fill with fork oil to specified amount. My bike is the CBR250RR(R) it specifies 83mm from the top.


    Insert the cushion spring making sure the narrow end of the spring is facing down, followed by the spring seat washer then the spacer pipe.



    Extend the fork pipe so the spacer tube is retracted.


    This is where you would do the 20 cent coin mod and place the coins on top of the spacer tube.

    There were 5 coins in mine when I pulled it apart.

    I didn't know about the mod at the time and was bloody confused as to why there were coins in my suspension.

    I decided not to place the coins in it this time, see how it feels.

    So next is to install the fork bolt, making sure the o-ring is installed. You will have to compress the spacer tube with the bolt while screwing it in.


    You will have to do a final torque on the bolt once the suspension is installed on the bike.

    And thats about it Feel free to make adjustments to anything I have missed or maybe some tips you have. I have only done this to try help others. Cheers
