Yeah, either dropped the cylinder or was tapping on it with a hammer to get it loose. Or maybe dropped the bike on the right side and the pipe got smashed in there and pushed up against it.

FMF Ti-2 has an aluminum canister, not carbon.

Added reply in a thread Pulling Bike with WRX 10/22/2014 8:16 AM

I pulled a small trailer with 1 or 2 bikes with 4-banger cars for years. No problem. Don't try to go fast up big hills and be careful of overloading the brakes when stopping. Biggest thing with the WRX will be to stay out of the boost. You can easily ... more »

You can try paint stripper like Aircraft stripper or Zip-Strip. If the paint he used was soft it might take most of it off. I tried this once and it barely removed any paint and it's a PITA because you have to wear gloves and the crap gets all over. ... more »

Actually, the part number did change for the 125 when it went to a solid steel wheel in 2007. The new part then became the superseded part for the older 2005-2006 bikes. So they updated the parts diagrams for all the older bikes so that if you ordered ... more »

What Scott's did you try? Probably the Recoil which is based off the old Model 89 that has been around since the 70's or 80's. The newer models, the Hustle and Tyrant, both have the adjustable nose fit feature. It is awesome. I don't know of any other ... more »

The 5XC pegs are about 5mm lower than the stock 2-stroke pegs. Sounds like this might be a good thing for you. I used the 17D's from the newer 250F's on my YZ250 as they are the same height. I have the stock reed cage on my 250. Haven't tried aftermarket ... more »

Added reply in a thread My top end. Opinions? 10/20/2014 7:32 PM

Yep, thing is all good and spooged up. I think once you get that all cleaned out and silencer repacked it will be a different bike. 90 psi sounds about right for the amount of blowby that piston is showing. If I remember correctly, I think I usually ... more »

Added reply in a thread KTM sx 125 jetting issue? Video! 10/20/2014 2:08 PM

A stuttering or hesitation on the top end at WFO is usually a main jet that is too rich. It needs to be lean enough on top to allow the bike to rev out cleanly. I would throw the stock pipe and previous jetting back on just to verify the symptom and ... more »

Added reply in a thread My top end. Opinions? 10/20/2014 2:01 PM

Get us a close up pic of the plug tip and also a clear pic of the underside of the piston dome. Also, what year CR250? Does it still have the stock carb? What jetting is in the carb? What does the silencer packing look like? These answers will help analyze ... more »

The cylinder need to come off and the entire power valve system (valves and linkage) needs to be disassembled and every part cleaned back to original and reassembled carefully. If you want it to look that that again next time you do a top end, run Castor ... more »

Been using Bel-Ray for years and never had a speck of dirt get past it.. and I've ridden in some extreme dust. I'd like to try No-Toil or other Bio type system for the ease of cleaning but hear too many folks saying it just does not stop dirt as well. ... more »

I'd bet money that bike was running castor oil. And that pic is a perfect example of why not to.

That guy is advertising that frame as 2005-2006-2007, but there are differences in those years. Particularly how the exhaust and right side plate mount near the kicker.

CL cracks me the F up. "Perfect shape" he says. My definition of perfect shape does not include cases mangled by a thrown chain. I'm just weird like that I guess.

Yeah, I know what the regulator is for, but these forks only hold like 7 psi in some of the chambers. Kinda hard to get accurate to that degree with anything other than a small hand pump. What I'm saying is who wants to drag a tank, regulator, gauge, ... more »
