How did he test the head gasket? Do a pressure test on the cooling system? Even if you pass a pressure test, the compression of the engine can leak past the head gasket, over pressurize the coolant system and force coolant out the overflow.

If I remember correctly, back in the day people used to put KX60 pegs on them. Direct bolt on.

This goes right along with the "no one other than a top Pro can use all the power of a stock 450 therefore no one needs any mods" line of thinking. If you are faster on a slower 450 then ride a 250F and you'll be really fast! Right? Or another thing ... more »

Exactly, it's best to avoid generalities or hard and fast rules when it comes to wheel size. All factors should be taken into consideration including terrain, riding style, and riding skill. I've seen 5'0" girls on 29'ers that would have been better ... more »

Can't go wrong with any of them. But I don't think there's any lubrication or performance benefit to be gained running castor over modern synthetics. Sometimes Pro's are easier on the bike than the 250lb novice who seems incapable of shifting out of ... more »

Take a look at the Geax Saguaro. It rolls exceptionally well on hardpack and pavement and does not suffer much in the dirt. Granted, any tire that has closely spaced blocks is giving up something in the loose stuff to roll better on the hard, but... ... more »

Is your seat slid all the way front on the rails? Poor man's way of testing a shorter reach to the bars before buying another stem.

I believe Super-M is actually cheaper than Castor-927. Super-M is a semi-synthetic oil. Formula-K2 is Maxima's top of the line full-synthetic. I tried K2 before and found that the bike was not quite as crisp and had a hint of drool out the muffler. I ... more »

I run Maxima Super-M at 32:1 in both my YZ125 and 250. Both bikes run super strong and crisp and have never had a problem in over 5 years. Top ends come out nice and clean with easy power valve cleaning when I rebuild them. In my mind, there is no reason ... more »

^^^ Yep, remove the entire right side cover, replace the shaft, bearing, and both seals and gaskets. You're pretty much wasting your time if you don't do it correctly. Water did not get in your oil because it only got past the 1st seal and then out the ... more »

I stripped the paint off my stock pipe on my 2006 YZ125 also. Like you said, paint stripper barely helped. I broke out the drill with a small wire wheel on it and made short work of that paint. Afterwards, I used progressively finer and finer sandpaper ... more »

The "long-body" PWK's from the 1999-2000 CR250 (and also the long body one that is sold by aftermarket suppliers such as JD jetting and SUDCO) do not fit correctly on the 2004 CR250. They are too long and sit cockeyed in the intake manifold with high ... more »
