Ditto. In 40 years of riding, No-toil is the only oil that I have ever used that allowed dirt/silt to pass through a filter. I like the convenience, but I need a heavy duty oil that will never allow dirt to pass through the filter on my bikes. Belray ... more »

Added reply in a thread tool for measuring bore: what's it called? 10/14/2014 5:21 PM
I use a feeler gauge to measure my piston/bore tolerances, but that's what I have to work with.

Cool bike Jeff. 2-strokes are just plain fun. Even 32yo 2-strokes.
Added reply in a thread I would like to see the AMA do something about tracks 10/10/2014 11:14 AM
It also depends on the composition of the dirt. On a soft dirt track, if you put the jump face too close to the corner, the jump face often develops kickers from bikes accelerating off the lip. Another problem with having a jump face close to the corner ... more »

He swapped out on a little 2' roller that's about 30' before the face of an easy 80' table. Unfortunately he was thrown face first into the jump face. The speeds in that area are 25-30mph. I think racing an unfamiliar 450 was probably the primary contributor ... more »

The tracks aren't the problem, imo. Two weeks ago, we had in just one weekend, a rider paralyzed at Oak Hill, a rider careflighted out of Masterpool's with a broken back, a rider shatter his collarbone, ribs and puncture a lung at Underground, and lost ... more »

Scotty Haynes at Performance Factory might be able to help. He was Tedesco's mechanic at Plano Honda.

Yes, all 92-96 CR250 tanks are the same, which are also the same as 93-97 CR125.
Added reply in a thread Who would have thought a broken chain adjuster bolt could mess up so much stuff three corners later 10/7/2014 7:48 AM
I always tell newbies "the machine can kill you if it breaks at the wrong time". A local racer was killed a few years ago when his front sprocket broke all the teeth off like that and the chain locked up the rear wheel on the biggest jump on the track. ... more »

I have the original crank seals in my 1982 RM250 and they still work perfectly.

I have never been disappointed by OEM seals or gasket. Aftermarket seals and gaskets have disappointed me on several occasions.

Added reply in a thread Drilling Wiseco - mistake 9/30/2014 8:59 AM
I would not recommend trying to plug the hole with JB weld. If it came loose, you would have much bigger problems. Just run the Wiseco until it's time for a new piston. You will be losing a little secondary compression out that offset hole, but not enough ... more »

A friend of mine was with Buddy when they loaded him in the care flight. He said the entire front face portion of the Answer helmet shattered like glass, including the forehead area, and broke completely off.
