Some more parts coming in bit by bit.I picked up some used protapers.




The Oem triples are rubber mounted, and when I disassembled the triples the rubber cones looked like new.

Default 96-02 RM 250 Footpegs mounted on 84 RM 250.

I saw this listed on another forum without much detail so I though I would see if it would work because the stock 84 footpegs are very narrow. So, I pulled my frame out of my shipping box so I could drill out the peg mount holes before having the frame powder coated.

These are the stock pegs.



These are the 98 RM 250 pegs with pins and springs.



The pins are bigger on the 98 so you have to drill out the holes on the frame to 9.5mm which is a 3/8 inch drill bit. I used carbide bit and a Milwaukee hammer drill at super slow speed. You have to maintain pressure on the drill but barely rotate the bit, as long as you are getting long chunks of metal you are doing fine but if you are just getting metal dust, you are going too fast and you will ruin the bit.

It took me about 6 minutes per each peg mount. Afterwards, the pins fit perfectly.





Pegs bolted right up but I did have to file the brake side a little to clear a frame weld.



84 RM 250 peg and 98 RM 250 peg

I bought a drill press and a bit set. I know you are not supposed to use a carbide bit with a hand held drill or tool but I had trouble drilling the 1st hole out with a cobalt bit(maybe too fast rotation). I didn’t have any problem with the carbide bit. I suppose if you go slow and use lubrication to control the heat then HSS or Cobalt would work without any problem at all.
