hey guys,

as some of you know i bought a 97 rs50 awhile back for dirt cheap (190) bearing in mind it was running. However got it about 1 mile down the road from the sellers house when i started hearing a nice loud knocking from the bottom end - nice.

so got it home, n parked it up :)

http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20110811_202656.jpg

paintwork is tatty, needs new tyres, brakes, brake pads, gear selector, brake pedal, levers, infact the only thing that seems decent is the frame and forks, even the rear swingarm is chewed up where somebody didnt know how to adjust the positioning of it!

originally had the intention of keeping it standard anbd repairing it for my gf to ride, but her parents weren't too keen and after getting a new job, i had the money to do what i want with it :cheers:

so i stripped it down and this is what it was left like

http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20110813_095456.jpg

so out with the old engine, in with the new!

http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20111009_162801.jpg
an 02 engine replaces the old ;D

and yes i know the sprocket and chain are both complete fooked, i just put it in for a quick test ride to make sure it ran sweet (which it did :D)

so now for the 06 conversion, planned to do the tank and backwards from 06 onwards, keeping the nose, side fairings and swingarm all 97 :)

chopped off the subframe

http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20111015_132154.jpg

and a quick mock up to see what it looks like is where im at currently :)
http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20111015_134321.jpg

will keep you guys updated on how its going, currently chopped up the old subframe and am going to weld parts back onto the frame and then drill a hole through to line up with the 06 subframe :)

wish me luck! :peace:

update:

have welded the lower bracket of the subframe onto the frame and bolted it on :)

http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20111017_192356.jpg

now just for the top ones which hopefully i should be doing today :)

p.s, ive seen a husky crosser with a numberplate below the main rider seat sort of infront and just above the rear wheel, tried to show an idea of what it was like below

http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20111018_175555.jpg

is that legal?

Looking how yor ataching the rear subframe i can tell you now thats not going to end wel mate, you need to reinforce it way more, dual sided brackets where you bolt it into with atleast 2 Hard Steel Bolts each.

Also the suport wher ethe shock absorber bolts on to might not be strong enough now just being atached on one side to the frame.

And no the plate is not legal like that.

JimmySR
10-21-2011, 06:53 AM
the bottom bars of the subframe are being bolted on to a total of 4 2mm thick steel plates with strong bolts as you said, and the top bars of the subframe are being welded on with two 3mm thick steel plates, we put just 4 brackets on (two top two bottom, instead of 2 top 4 bottom) and it was very strong, a lot stronger than i anticipated and the rear shock still worked absolutely fine.

and thanks about the number plate, will jus have to have a tail tidy instead ;D

this is the bike as it currently stands:

http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20111030_142606.jpg

had to check everything lined up correctly and what would you know, it did!

the brackets are all tacked/welded on and its being taken to a friend to get welded properly with a nice finish :)

next step is stripping the bike down to the frame and getting it resprayed

look at the pics above he shows how to ::p:

if your good at welding, cutting strips of metal then i think it should be a alright project if you wanted to do what jimmy did ;)
the main thing is making it all look like its ment to be like it looks n not messy but most of all STRONG

jimmy"s is a good example but have seen a few others on here about that look good too

are you doing the side fairings if so i need the air scoops and blinkers

RS_Patrick
04-12-2012, 10:25 AM
Those rims fit any single sided swingarmed AF1-50 and RS50 only, the spokes actualy make an angle at 2/3 out from the center inwards, but thats really hard to see they way this gut took the picture.

JimmySR
04-12-2012, 10:56 AM
wow, patrick those rims are nice! Will definitely be investing in them, thanks for pointing them out :)

and sorry for the long delay guys, money has been an issue, and have been focusing on minor things of rubbish interest (e.g. needed to find a way to get around not having a key to open the petrol tank + fitting a battery holder + waiting for a fuel tap to arrive + wiring and other bits and bobs)

will take some pictures as it currently stands soon, just getting it running again after it pissed coolant into the engine oil due to a shit gasket round the crank casing :P

it doesn't look much different but its 95% done from running and riding so ill be stripping it down and prepping it for spraying soon, and this time money allows :)

keep u updated.

as a little off-topic but still related, here are some bits my dads made to customise his SR - all hand made:

04-14-2012, 12:27 PM
patrick, do you know if them af1 wheels you first suggested are the same as the 125 ones? I can find 125 af1 1993 wheels on ebay but cant find any 50 ones. Was wondering if they were different? Besides the bigger tyre :P

RS_Patrick
04-14-2012, 07:22 PM
There difrent mate, but they may fit, problem is i got no way to see if they do fit on a 50 or not :(

JimmySR
04-16-2012, 02:36 PM
i think they'd fit, but looking at it, the af1 125 wheel would sit backwards, as the swingarm is on the opposite side, so it'd be like turning the rim backwards.

quick question, would this fit my rs50, if not, why, and could i use it with a vacuum petrol tap?

cheers!

JimmySR
04-18-2012, 10:45 AM
thanks for the offer, but 21mm is enough of a bitch to set up, let alone 24mm :P

can easily pick up a 21mm for 60-70 quid, but cant find any 17 or 19's anywhere, for less than 110 anyway :P

i think the tnt one should do job BUT listen to patrick ;)

if it was me id go for the second one for more quality

RS_Patrick
04-21-2012, 10:12 AM
I cant see it well because its turned the other way, but in the picture it looks like an electronic choke again, while the Aerox is a Manual choke...

The first one should work, but a bit harder to get to the choke on it, and it not really high quality stuff.

why does it need to be a automatic choke?

RS_Patrick
04-21-2012, 12:10 PM
It need sto be a manual choke mate, automatic choke needs and aditional powercircuit to power it as it operates electric and comes off on its own wen the engine is warm.

not trying to high jack your thread but noticed youhad a 97 rs 50 and was wondering if you would be willing to get the length of the spacer inside the front fork as mine were taken out and replaced by previous owner with another spring

JimmySR
04-22-2012, 06:29 AM
i know the TNT is cheap, but its mainly to get it running, not gonna be a tuned bike or anything, just want it to look pretty ;)

and you can get adapter kits to turn electric chokes into manual ;) but not gonna fork out more money than i need to.

so, as for the TNT 17.5, reckon thatll get me going? can i use the stock 97 airbox on it? cause gone through a lot of effort to get it to fit within the new subframe including making a custom stainless steel lid for it :P

n as for the spacers, haven't done my forks yet, might not even be keeping that front end, but if i do strip em down ill let you know, cheers

For there price there ok, but thats it, there pretty crude but do the job.

04-24-2012, 09:52 PM
Hey jimmy is there any way you can measure the spacer inside the fork for me I have a 97 there is no info on them and i dont want to pay the money for pieces of aluminum. i think you can unscrew the top and the spacer is right on top of the fork. also is there a belly fairing on these that sit in the middle of the to side fairing on the bottom

04-24-2012, 09:58 PM
sorry didnt see your previous post

04-26-2012, 10:20 PM
hey got a question about your front blinkers how are they installed I cannot get the scoops anywhere may have to do the same thing.

JimmySR
04-28-2012, 02:32 AM
no, theres no belly fairing on these. The two side fairings meet at the bottom. But there is a triangle piece in between the two fairings at the front that protects the rad and exhaust.

and my indis are cheapo carbon fibre effect ones, they were just drilled into the fairing iirc, its been a long time since they were on :P

What scoops are you on about?

And Patrick, would an AF1 front end fit onto this model?

Reason being i can pick up a whole af1 front end including wheel, tyre, brake caliper, brake disc, brake line, levers, forks, bottom yoke, mudguard. Simple swap over or am i looking at boring out the stem to accomodate? making a new tope yoke?

cheers

RS_Patrick
04-28-2012, 04:00 AM
Think a AF1-50 front end would fit in fine mate, depents on what model AF1-50 it is, but they didnt change the frame much.
Im not 100% sure though.

rs250lape
04-28-2012, 10:39 AM
were your front directionals are there is supposed to be a plastic air scoop then the blinker attaches to that. at least that is what i have seen on the parts fiche.

RS_Patrick
04-28-2012, 02:29 PM
Yeah, but the Airscoops are extremly hard to get wich you aloready found out.

Fit indicators in there, maybe make a costom cover for it from fine mesh with the indicators behind it. there fased out mate, no one no longer makes the parts anymore.

RS_Patrick
04-29-2012, 01:10 AM
Find indicators that fit in there mate, and if your handy you can buy fine mesh and make a cover over it with the blinkers behind it.

a big update on what has been done, been done over the past few months, very slowly :P haven't been able to spend much money on it or time until recently, but just updating you on the things that've been done.

so, after stripping the bike down, n rebuilding, came across a few problems that stopped me in my tracks aha.

one being that i didn't have a key for the petrol tank. So picked the lock and after hours of frustration trying to get the barrel out, we took it to a shop n they not only got the barrel out, but adjusted it so that my ignition key now fits in my tank! wahey.

another problem i had was the petrol tap being vacuum operated, but the carb had no nipples to allow for this. So i bought a new carb.

Then came the problem that the standard air filter didn't fit as the union was too small, so my dad made this up for me :)
http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20120501_200621.jpg
http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20120501_200635.jpg

another problem, with the stock airbox, is that the lid hits the subframe and so it cant be bolted on with the lid of the air box on there, as you might be able to see from the pic:
http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20120501_202847.jpg

and so got this fabricated up by my dad as a rough
http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20120501_200747.jpg

but that would only fit on if the airbox with the subframe down like so, without the upper bracket:
http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20120501_200904.jpg

which as you can tell is a big no no :P so my dads made up a new one but its in the workshop being lufered(sp?) to allow air in.

so on with the bike, got the battery box off the old one and put it in the lugs on the old subframe still remaining (on the shock) and made some metal hooks that bolt in with the new subframe to hold the battery in place with a strap (haven't fitted the strap yet tho :) )

http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20120501_202858.jpg

also, to patrick who said the 99-05 exhaust hits the foot pegs ;), it doesn't :D did make up a bracket to hold the exhaust comfortably though :)

on other news, this arrived in the post
http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x362/jgrizzla/IMG_20120501_200848.jpg

and in more news, the tnt carb build quality is absolutely dire. but hey, got it working. did notice something though which leads me to ask...

as standard, are the 95-98 rs50's fitted with quick action throttles? because mine literally moves about a quarter of a turn before its full throttle.

and also im having a problem routing the clutch cable. I can't find a place to route it where its tight enough to actually pull the clutch in, without being ruined by moving the handle bars. everywhere i seem to route it just leaves loads of excess cable which ofcourse means i cant pull the clutch in? i am capable of cutting it shorter, but would rather try a proper route through first if anyone knows?

sorry for the long wait, hope it was worth it for some of u haha, should be doing a bit more work to it more frequent now :)

RS_Patrick
05-02-2012, 02:56 AM
Quarter of a turn is pretty normal on the throttle, on the airbox cover intake, i would have made it difrently with a tubilar intake in the cover but this might work ok also.

Dont know what your doing with the clutch cable mate but your doing something really wrong, the cable it self shoulnd be tight at all, the outer cable should sit in the adjuster on the handlebars and on the adjuster on the engine and the inner cable just moves inside it, its the iner cable that needs to bve the right lengt and corectly adjusted, even if you would have the cable runing the shortest route from the handlebar to the clutch it should work fine.

JimmySR
05-03-2012, 11:09 AM
had no room for a tubular intake, if im thinking of what your trying to explain :P due to the battery box and the seat.

and yeah ive realised i was just trying to make the cable fit, its far too long, but its apparently for models 95-05... so gonna cut it down to the right length.

JimmySR
05-11-2012, 01:46 PM
right, all is hooked up. well, mostly.

I tried starting it off the button but it wouldnt, so i tried bumping it. After awhile of trying, you can smell the fuel but i dont think theres a spark.

Looked through the wiring diagram and it mostly seems there. I thought my starter relay wasnt working so i bridged the gap and the starter motor started spinning but it wouldnt pop out and engage the flywheel?

So here are my questions:

1) Would a low charge battery or by bridging the gap cause the starter motor to turn but not engage? Or am i looking at refurbing the starter motor?

2) Would not connecting up the earth from the CDI properly cause it not to spark? Would not connecting any of the earths up with a solid connection cause it not to spark? Or turn off the button?

3) Would it not spark at all if i bumped it but the earth from the CDI wasn't connected?

4) Ive checked the loom over and it seems ok, so why wont the starter relay engage when i press the button? Ive bypassed the button and it still doesnt turn over. If i bypass the starter relay it turns over but doesn't engage.

Thanks in advance for any help :P

Try starting it of a car battery, and make sure the grounding is ok, on custom buids, resprays i always fit extra grounbding bridges from 1 part of the frame to an other and to the engine to make sure the grounding is perfect.

Ok so a quick update. By bridging the starter relay I could get it to spark nicely. Engine turns over well. But now it's not getting any fuel. When It turns over the fuel moves back and forth in the pipe? It gets air bubbles in it thats how I know. What could cause this? Doesnt make a difference if it's on choke or not. Brand new carb remember :P
Thanks

tried using the proper 06 fuel tank with tap, vacuum hooked up to carb, and also using a funnel directly into the pipe.

the fuel just moves up n down as the engine turns over?

Than i think the vacume tap is not working good, take the vacume tube off and suck on it and see if it works good than.

dont think u understand, i tried it without vacuum tap, i fed fuel directly from funnel, down fuel line and into the carb. It still bounced back n forth :S

Check if your reed is working properly! :)
Maybe it doesn't close so you get a "blowback"..

That pipe only fits on a Single sided swingarm model RS50 or AF1-50, on the later models the swingarm is in the way.

Its for a RS50 <1998 model... if its original it should have Aprilia stamped into the expensionchamber, if its not original it might have a brandname on there... its difrent from the 2 i have, looks a bit like a Giannelli i got laying around.

sorry for not updatin guys, the bikes been put in the shed, have been busy with work n my vfr400 recently.

the exhaust is from a 99-05 rs50. its not the <98 model, all i did was make up a bracket to hold the exhaust as bit lower so it misses the fairing.

its the standard exhaust but will be changed for an arrow one soon, so itll be up for sale at some point if anyone wants.

still got that problem with the fuel not being sucked through, so planning to strip at some point this week, check the reeds although they should be fine, but im thinking its the floatbowl stuck or something, wouldn't surprise me with the quality of the carb.

sorry for long delay guys!

take it easy
