Postby sharvie » Sat Sep 11, 2010 7:49 pm

Honda TLR 250 referb
Probably not the most inspiring before and after photos, but here they are

The photos have been take about 18 months apart. The after pictures are a bit washed out, the sun was out in full force.
See if you can pick the changes?

well done eagle, all correct except I used the original piston and didn't change the suspension. There is more!

I see you are also a TLR owner, bring on the four strokes

I could only pick the muffler / header Steve but I did have some inside trading :).
One things for sure it looks unreal. [for a fourstroke :D ]

Hi Eagle,
The brand of the shocks is "Falcon" from the UK. They are alloy body, light-weight-action (they have a faster rebound than the standard Falcon trials shocks). I bought them direct from the UK as the Auatralian importer didn't seem to follow what I was talking about when I refered to light-weight-action. The light-weight-action has nothing to do with the shock body being constructed from alloy.

The swing arm is also from the UK, bought it through "In Motion Trials" who bought it for me from a guy called Moto Mike, who did not want to deal with overseas buyers.

Hope this helps
Steve.

Yes, before 88kg, after 81.8kg both dry weight figures.
It is possible to lose a solid 1.5kg by changing to a one piece seat tank unit made from carbon fibre, but the bike wouldn't look original, also the frame has to be modified to fit it, which I am not prepared to do.
You have not picked any changes, there are still a few that haven't been mentioned.
Steve.

The "after" rear rim looks like a tubeless type but I can't see the "before" rear rim well enough to know if it is different
The cable ties holding the name board on are a different colour
Maybe different footpegs but "before" photo doesn't show them well enough
The chain is a different colour
errrrrr I'm going crosseyed trying to see differences - time to give up

Hello Sharvie,
Correct me if I'm wrong , but I believe those front forks have been revalved for a faster action.
Cheers
