I have a friend at work that I've been pestering about a selling me this 250r motor to make a bike saw out of. This has been on the bucket list to build from the first time I seen one. SO he tells me yesterday to just come get the thing so tonight after work I go over there and it is a basket case! Good deal, saves me the hassle of having to split it as I'm going to cut the tranny and counter shaft off anyhow. Well I find out that he had sold the left crankcase for this motor and now I'm beginning to wonder if this project is a bust as I can not find a left case for a reasonable price. I may be dead in the water before it gets going. I'm not sure if there were many differences in the case halves between the model years or not. Anyone got any info or leads for the left case half I would appreciate any contacts! Here is what I did tonight was cut the tranny and counter shaft off.
