FIRST POST: Just bought myself an 84 RZ250RR imported from Japan to Sydney AU for Xmas. Id been eyeing off 250cc 2 strokes after enjoying the delights of a Gilera Runner FXR180 scooter for a couple of years. The RZ also joins a Vespa GTS250, an 04 Triumph Bonnie and a BMWF800R so its like WW2 in my garage every night. Joined this forum to get some tips on these crazy 2 stroke beasties. The RZ had only 15,000ks and as far as I can gather is pretty stock and original. At the moment I'm learning how to get it running smoothly and a whole new chapter on riding a 30yo motorcycle. Because its in such original condition Ive decided to keep it stock as much as possible but Im not adverse to modding the brakes suspension and tyres. So far Ive synched the carbies, sorted out the oil pump and put progressive springs in the front shocks. Im now looking at new tyres, braided lines and the triumph caliper mod. So far Im pretty impressed at the handling of the RZ and when its running smoothly the big grin I get from the power band. Having a great time with this new beastie, just so much to learn.
