Welcome to the Step by Step 250 MAG restoration project.

Step 6

Moving to the rear.

A new pair of Ohlins Classic MX shocks were bolted on. Probably the most expensive choice in vintage shocks but by far THE BEST. These shocks will perform at optimum levels being bolted to the Novation swingarm with needle bearings. When these shocks are not financially possible there are a few other good quality, lower priced options in Progressive and Works Performance.

The rear wheel was rebuilt with the same high quality parts and upgrades as the front wheel, mentioned in step 5. Both front and rear wheel use the same size brake shoes. An alloy 56 tooth rear sprocket was added and a new RK 520 chain. We didn't go the O'ring route since it robs some of the H.P. and is fairly expensive. The alloy rear brake torque arm went right on and uses sealed bearing roller wheels in the built-in chain guide.

We couldn't wait to install the high performance expansion chamber. We had ours chrome plated and it turned out awesome. Fits perfectly, mounts easily with no modifications, is much lighter than stock, won't burn the inside of your left knee and has a very trick rebuildable aluminum silencer. Makes more power too.

Plastic rear and inner rear fenders are on and we chose the glossy finish version. Very nice!
