Bikes Croatia 1997 Yamaha SR250 “Kokon” – the story
Part 1 || Part 2 || Part 3
The engine was cleaned and painted, generally serviced and is good for decades to come.
We did a major upgrade to the suspension, with progressive springs at front (and a fork complete service), and a new set of YSS shocks at the back. It is nice and firm now and the suspension works.
New spokes were installed onto freshly powdercoated satin black hubs and rims with a pair of Heidenaus to match the overall appearance. Front caliper was overhauled, new pads and brake shoes and a steelbraided hose in front.
We installed chrome mudguards and positioned the front one high, like on old enduro models, so the bike has a completely different vibe now, compared to stock. The rear end is raised to match the new stance.
A LSL six days headlight was installed, all in black with clear glass and a smaller diameter than stock.
A TRW low black handlebar was fitted, with the new aluminium
dash/plate and a small speedo with integrated idiot lights, Biltwell Kung Fu
grips close the deal.
