Girlfriend Takes Apart Her Dirt Bike!

Girlfriend Takes Apart Her Dirt Bike!


hey what’s going on guys I’m here with a
very special guest Haley my girlfriend and we have her half torn apart XR80 back here and what we’re going to be doing today is tearing this thing
the rest of the way apart sending the frame and swingarm out to powder coating
and then getting the bike all the way back together so that’s me a really fun
video so stay tuned so that was it yeah what do you think
like 25 minutes to take half the bike apart was it too bad for two people and
now we’ve got a whole pile of parts of what used to be Haley’s dirtbike so
there’s a couple small things we’ll need to do to prep for powder coat you need
to knock out the steering races on the frame and the pivot bushings on the
stool arm as well as clean all the dirt and grime off these parts for the races
that should go use extension and tap them out with a hammer this works now if
you can I’ll be able to do the same thing on the swing arm as well just pop
the end caps off slide out the spacer talk to you crusty and then the bushings
are just plastic so I think I should be able to knock them out using the same
method time to get cleaning let’s be soaking these with some simple green
degreaser and then hitting them with a pressure washer all right we’re all ready for powder
coating so I’m going to drop these off at the shop tomorrow and while we’re
waiting on those to come back I can do a little bit more cleaning over here kind
of freshen up the gas tank the air box and I think the rest of this stuff is
pretty clean and also going to do some cleaning on the engine as well so if a
gas tank and air box are cleaned with Dawn dish soap and completely dried now
it’s time to work some magic with the seracote trim coat so I let the trim
coat dry for about 20 minutes and as you can see this stuff turned out
insane you can see the difference between the
gas cap which I didn’t coat and the gas tank huge huge difference there this
stuff never fails to blow my mind so now it’s time to clean up the engine I’ve
got the intake covered up with duct tape as well as the vent exhaust has a rag
stuffed in the port and it’s fine to have the fly wound stator and get wet
we’ll just blow those out later so I’m just gonna be using simple green and a
pressure washer on this as well I was able to get the engine fairly
clean didn’t really want to go too crazy with it and start polishing up the cases
or anything like that but the ship shaft has a little bit of damage around it
damage of the case and the seal and as you can see it’s been leaking some oil
so I am gonna yank that seal out and replace it I’m thinking we still have
enough material left on that crankcase to create a good seal so I’m gonna pop
in a new OEM seal and we should be good to go it still leaks I can always build
up some epoxy on that crankcase well well well look what we got here got the
frame and swingarm back from powder coating really happy with how these
turned out the guy did a great job on everything pretty pumped on the color –
just a nice simple gray with a tiny bit of metallic in it did a nice job of
prepping everything masked off all the holes that shouldn’t have powder like
the threads the neck of the frame and the pivot of the swingarm so I had him
do the sandblasting as well so he took these parts from start to finish and
really happy with how they turned out so the shop I used is local to me about 30
minutes away it is called limitless coatings and Post Falls Idaho so if you
guys are local definitely go check them out so I will put his Instagram right
here on the bottom of the screen alright let’s bring the stuff inside and get
them ready to go back together now for the frame I’m gonna use clear grip tape
here on the side so that way it doesn’t wear from boots like it was worn before
the grip tape is also going to keep Haley on the bike I know this thing is
pretty fast it’s an XR 80 so I don’t want her
getting whiskey on it I also need to pop in the steering stem races up front and
for the swing arm I have new pivot bushings
both of these are tusk brand now to install the races I’ve got a press here
from tusk this allows you to press in pretty much
any bearing race it’s got a bunch of different sizes here now I’ve seen
people push in the races with a punch and a hammer but I would prefer to do it
right if one of these gets cracked or damaged when you’re installing it that
would not be good when you’re riding it so first up I’m gonna find the color
that works with these races looks like that one’s the right size I’m gonna get
the race started in the frame now it does help to leave these in the freezer
overnight and you can even heat up the neck of the frame that’ll help with
installation but I didn’t get the chance to pop these in the freezer got this
little handle or the adapter to get the race started in the frame now I’m gonna
bust out the press this piece slides through the neck of the frame looks like that one seated in nice and
straight I’m gonna get started on the other side now let’s cut up some grip
tape and get this beautiful powder coat job protected this stuff looks pretty sweet on there
think I’ll have no problem staying in place now let’s get the swingarm dialed
in with the bushing kit now at this point the bike is ready to
go back together I’m sure Halley’s me really pumped with
the powder coat on the frame and swingarm so I’m gonna get her little
butt out here to help me get her bike back going but this is everything to her
bike right here all right we are ready to get this thing back together so Haley
can start riding again all right bikes coming along really good
really loving the colors on there looking just primo she’s got to run and
do some school work so I am going to bolt on a few more things for the bike
and then we’ll just wrap up the video right there we’ve got some more work to
do I have the wiring to bolt up as well as the carburetor flower will cover
chain and all the guards and guides man this thing is coming along really
really good I’m most more excited about it than the 250 I don’t know I’ve always
just really liked these little bikes this is what I grew up riding and it
brings back so many memories working on it
as you guys probably noticed my grip tape isn’t holding up the best peeling
up pretty good might as well just peel it all the way off so definitely do not
buy it this it’s leaving some glue on there
this factory effects grip tape it is no boy now got some different grip tape on
the way hopefully the other stuff works a little better yeah and one more thing
I did swap out the front tire for a new one this is an OEM tire from Rocky
Mountain as you can see not a whole lot of tread on these from new this wheel is
kind of a funky size it’s a 16 inch front so no one like Dunlop or Michelin
or Bridgestone makes any decent tires in that size so this will have to do all
right guys made a lot of good progress on the XR today so pump is how it’s
coming along really glad you won head of powder good frame and swingarm
looks so much better now in the next video I’ll be able to finish up the bike
completely we’ve got a bunch of cool parts over the corner for it so that
would be pretty cool and a surprise Hayley with it when it’s all finished up
she’s been so busy with school lately and it’ll be a nice little gift for it
just a little heads up for you guys I do have new hats and t-shirts over on the
website this is a new hat right here really pumped with how this one came out
new t-shirt as well got a few other hats here curved bill with the prime minutes
close to look at it and a flat bill as well love the colors on that one just
got the same text on there so I will drop a link to all this stuff down below
that is gonna wrap with the video thank you so much for watching and I will see
you all in the video when we wrap this thing up till then keep it price you

  1. Try cutting the corners off the grip tape, its the same purpose as band aids with round ends instead of square ends.

  2. man i found your channel a couple months ago and i love all your talent and positivity keep it up 🤪
    Edit: you have also helped me learn so much about building and working on bikes

  3. I'm sorry to say this, but I would not let my girlfriend drive that thing. Not because it is looking so good and stuff, but it has drum brakes, and I do not trust drums. Been driving with drumbrakes over a year and they are so bad. You should really sell that bike in that condition, and buy a newer bike, with better brakes. (I mean, drums might be good if you really handle them really well and clean them all the time, but it just isnt worth it.)

  4. Those new hats are looking really good, I think I'll have to grab one or two!

    Love your content, I've been watching since your bog fix video. Thanks for all the amazing videos and inspiring me to work on my bike more!

  5. Man your so talented I wish I was you I get so confused and lose things and you do it like nothing it looks so good already

  6. I am one dream why couldn't you do a video with your girlfriend billion most of the install and you talking about it as she does it

  7. I have to side with you with that grip tape. I have issues with it sticking to my frame and it wears right through with one ride on it

  8. So with the power coat frame, where the little ground eyelet bolts to the frame did it make a good enough connection ? Would you have to scrape the powder coat ?

  9. Tut tut cam ….🤭 those engine bolts at 9:00 are certainly not up to your usual standard buddy.😱
    You are well respected for your build quality and attention to detail, don’t let the standards slip just because Hayley won’t notice? We notice 🤩👍🏽😁

  10. At first i thought the colour of the frame was terrible.. just looked like a primer coating.. but as the bike comes together, im starting to think that colour actually suits it very much.
    Btw, please invest in a wireless microphone that you can clip on your collar. Your voice gets far away in some shots.

  11. I love the passion in herself, can see her Interest in build it all back in her eyes. You are lucky man to have her. Keep up both of you

  12. I would find a machine shop to turn new bushings for the swing arm out of phosphor bronze. Should last a lot longer. And it is a good bearing material. Great looking build though as always 👍

  13. Late to the vid but it's looking sick bro. The cr is gonna have to watch out now theres a new kid on the block😂 keep it up man!!!

  14. Very Nice xr80 camron you do the best bike builds on Youtube mate you always take your time with bike builds not like most bike builds you see on Youtube most people buy new parts but rush the rest of the bikes and they dont turn out like your bike builds if i was in your area and i wanted to do a nut bolt rebuild on my bike i would send it over to you and have rebuild it keep up the good work mate it must run in your family as devin dose sic work on his evos and frs r1 r6 i love your channels 100% i check every day for new videos bye you guys 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

  15. Just found you and loving the channel! You got yourself a new subscriber 🙂
    I have a channel and would love to collab!

  16. I've been trying to convince my girl (just married) to get into riding. I was hoping to teach her on my 200 cc Chinese dual sport, but even that is way too tall for her to stand up. I learned on a bike I couldn't stand up at first, but at least I grew into it haha.

  17. Loving vids man, its guys like you that inspired me to start my own channel covering riding spots in SouthAfrica. Check it out if you want to: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHPxi35MMxesu2N_QTHeovQ

  18. My wife rides with me the kids sometimes but as soon they are in the garage and tools come out…she gone 😆. ……Seacrest Out…

  19. How well does the Cerakote trim coat hold up over time? I've tried a few "plastic restore" products on my bike but after a couple washes the parts look dull again.

  20. Prime cameron , got to be onest, seeeing haley working on a Bike looks at least as great as seeeing you 😃😃keep it up , greets from belgium , Eddy btw the cr 250 looks amazing

  21. Cameron, I wanted to ask you how many wipes does 1pack of the Ceralote trim coat come with? The results are incredible!

  22. Dude !!! Why did i subscribe to your channel!!! I am a freaking addict!! I watch all of them over and over!!! I have learned a lot too! I am new to motocross but I do have a lot of mechanical and racing experience, particularly in composites. I enjoy learning all the new things from your videos!

  23. Looks great. I keep watching your wheel build videos. I’m going to be taking the wheel apart my 82 cr125 thar I’m restoring. Just ordered more pads from you. And a couple of shirts.

  24. Always good to put a label on the parts you take off .for first timers it's helps .if there on there own making a start.👍

  25. Hello and good day Cameron I hope this message finds you doing well just a little tip you can also use Tire foam stuff you use on your tires to make them shiny on black Plastic Products it works I'm not quite sure if it's as good as cerakote or what the chemical makeup or differences but I know it really doesn't great job making anything black and plastic or any kind of plastic colored or not really makes them shine well although I must say it does tend to attract dust although that's easily washed off it's a trade-off for how good the bike looks prior to the ride anyways much love my brother if I can ever make it out that way I'm going to hit you up for sure because if I was well and able enough to get that out there I would probably bring my daughter and hopefully with enough introduction and time allowed for you to know I would love to come and ride your track with you and have lunch I guess it's just a dream of mine but anyways much love bro to you and Haley bike looks great as usual take care bye.

  26. Usually youre motivating me to ride/build dirtbikes, now you are motivating me to find a girlfriend that likes dirtbikes to! Haha

  27. the lord blessed you by healing your sickness ans gave you a huge blessing with such a beautiful girlfriend so yourself a favor and marry this girl dont let her get away you are truley a lucky man
