View Full Version : New guy from WNY

05-12-2010, 12:49 PM
I am an avid atv addict. though it rarely is on all fours, most of the time 2, and alot of time, none. I am eagerly awaiting my project 250sx to become available (Cattle, I would really like the white n blue one lol) I have a roller waiting for me to pick up. I have a few other very large project underway right now that are far more important, like my own house and a nice flat piece of prperty wher there is going to end up a flat track. My quad, currently, is a '91 250x with the 390cc big bore kit, custom cam and crank, (courtesy of D.J. Custom Performace Inc.) ported and polished head, DG Race pipe, AND..AND...it marks a driveway just like an old shovelhead (Courtesy of Steve Custom Screw-up, I mean Cycle, in Lockport, NY) they left out 2 head bolts, stripped 4 of 10 valve cover bolts, forgot to put 3 in and 3 were good, 3 for 10 isn't bad. The engine is getting ripped apart, tonight actually, for a complete new gasket kit and retapping those stripped bolts so I can take them all from 6mm to 7mm. Fullbore plastics waiting to go on,ITP Beadlocks waiting to go on,LSR Axles/Carrier/A-Arms/Steering Stem/and bar mount waiting also, but Greg at GKingPolishing is going to have his hands full with engine parts, frame parts, and suspension parts for this. I still need to find a local powdercoater in/around/near buffalo NY. I seen there was a guy who was doing this privately, I would love to touch base with him and let him take care of this for me.
I also have a website and forum put together to bring the local WNY riders together 250x.webs.com

addicted to noise pollution, and the smells of anxiety from those I embarass.

Funny you mention Steve. I know him well.

well I do hate to discredit folks, and they are now willing to work with me if I should need something, but im not happy with the way the machine turned out. The guys them selves are great bunch of guys. Just not happy with the engine. Last night we tore the engine apart (a honda tech and myself) and found the valve adjust screw and nut backed off and were laying inside the cover, the screw lodged under the cam lobe and cracked the head when the lobe hit it. It is repaired now, and I did call them to let them know what the diagnosis was, so we are now all on the same page.

You do powder coating (Honda250sx) ? I have some things I need to get done.

And here is the engine pictures, and repairs thread on my forum.
