Gotta tease a little bit haha. I'm also pretty skeptical of plans that never happen, some talk big with no action around here.
Here is where we're sitting currently. Everything is bolted down and it's a solid roller.
The OG front master cylinder is pretty crusty and stuck so I opted to just replace it with a spare Nissin I had sitting around from an old yz125. The caliper sticks and probably should be rebuilt.
The chain/sprockets are together currently. Nice straight chain line and doesn't rub anywhere. Its sitting with 14/43 gearing right now but I did some maths taking into account stock final drive and tire diameter of both machines and I decided to bump that up to 15/50. New chain/sprockets on the way.
The sprocket situation was another thing that worked out surprisingly well in my favor. The Blaster runs a 520 and the MB5 a 420. One was going to need swapped. I looked into a 520 rear but the MB5 has a weird pattern and I had no luck. Looking through my junk pile I found an old front 420 sprocket from rebuilding my kx80, wouldn't you know the countershafts are the same spline. Turns out there are tons of options here because a most of the old Jap mini motocrossers used that same spline.
Still to do
-Fab up a rear brake lever
-Mount pegs donated from a kx250f
-Sort out the electrical system
-Clutch and throttle cables
-Figure out an exhaust system
