    Oh - not another MC22 CBR250RR rebuild

    Hey everyone - as the title suggests, YES, ANOTHER MC22 CBR project.

    I appreciated the efforts members like Benny_Jay and Scroog McRuff put into entertaining everyone throughout their builds and thought I'd like to do the same.

    BIKE: 1996 MC22 CBR 250RR(R)
    COLOUR: R-210C
    CODE: R210
    KM: 66213

    Purchased the bike from Gumtree here in Brisbane.
    PRICE: $1200

    Owner purchased the bike and only had it a few months before dropping it. Scared the shit out of him so he decided to get rid of it. Didn't come with Rego or RWC.

    Damage from first assessment.
    Fairings
    Indicators
    Bent screen brace/holder
    Bar ends - scratched
    Possible more once I investigate further

    Plan is to replace the fairing anyway and give the bike a gound up clean and refresh.

    The test ride and the ride home were great, clutch felt sloppy, possible due to the "slipper clutch" thats on it. Didn't feel as responsive as one I took for a test ride the day before (over double the price). So with a good flush, carby clean, engine check and balance I'm hoping I got a great little bike.

    The new fairings will be a surprise

    Here are a series of pics of the;

    Started the strip of the bike. All seemed to go very well.

    Had my masking tape and sharpie ready to label EVERYTHING!

    Removed all tail pieces

    Next was the headlights. Pic of some random clips. This give me a guide to where all the screws and clips fit back together.

    So far so good. I'm confident that I took enough reference pics and labeled as much as I could.

    I'll be cleaning up the headlights first and looking into replacing with LED's. Anyone know if this can be achieved? Looking for a Iron man type of deal.

    I did manage to fiddle with the dash and noticed something odd..
    See if you can count how many bulbs I have and how many I should have..

    Anyone know now where I can buy just the one socket? Or do I need to replace the 4 of them. Getting red LED bulbs to replace.
