Good afternoonPosted this early but don't know what happened - can't find the post. Anyway I stripped my TL250 down and am going to try and do some restoration. Everything going ok until I found out that powder coating the frame destroys the swingarm bushings due to the high heat curing process. Can the bushing be replaceds with bronze machine bushings? Also was going to get the engine checked out but am afraid I can't get a gasket set to put it back together. Parts seem to be really scarce which is too bad. Although the bike gets a lot of knocks I think it has a rather majestic look to it and the 4 stoke sound is sure quiet compared to some of the same year two strokes. Any comments on the gasket set or bushings are appreciated. Would be great if there is a site for TL250 restoration type questions. Sure hope I have not started something that can't be finished.thksTim in Alberta Canada

The 360 portion of the part number for a TL250's swingarm bushings, 52109-360-310, tells you that the part first appeared on a 1974 CR125.

Yes, bronze bushings are available for a CR125, and they'll fit perfectly on a TL250.

25 US dollars. That's for a pair.

Western Hills wants 22.95 each.

You make the call.

This site also lists CR125 bronze bushings, no price posted:  http://www.amsracing.com/parts/hondastuff.htm

To All

Red Rider site is no longer in business and arms racing has been waiting for about 6 months for his stock.  If anybody knows of an alternate site pls post as I need a set and have not been able to locate as yet.

 

Thks

I had an old Yamaha IT that needed swingarm bushings that were no longer available, had the machine shop whip me up a set of ones fron some tuff industrial plastic but coulda choose the orrigional bronze. Price was not too bad (forget the price but I am cheap)

Let me know if you are looking to sell this bike!

This site claims In Stock Now for 73-74 CR125 bronze swingarm bushings, which also fit the TL250.  Not cheap.

http://www.vintageiron.com/

There's no date on the site so it's unclear what Now means. (Nor do they say if operators are standing by.)

But elsewhere on the site is a wish that Britney stay in rehab, so it has been recently updated. It pays to stay in touch with pop culture.
