No way. They help keep mud off your levers, grips, and gloves from roost.
Added reply in a thread 110-90-19 to Big for a 125? 8/15/2014 12:49 PM
There are 110/80-19 tires specifically intended to be put on the skinnier 1.85" rim of a 250F (same rim as a 125). The 110/90-19 is intended for use on a 2.15" rim on a 450 or 250 2-stroke. That being said, I have the Bridgestone 403 in 100/90-19 like ... more »

If your kid is not dominating... absolutely dominating... on the local level, race for fun because he has no future as a top level Pro. I see local kids who have to be reminded to stand up, shift gears sometimes, and sit front in the pocket of the seat ... more »

I saw the full photo spread on this one before. The wheel chock has big anchor bolts going right through the roof with nuts up against the ceiling.
Added reply in a thread Sweet fmf titanium pipe's 8/14/2014 12:31 PM
The front stinger portion is likely titanium as well since it is titanium on their standard off-the-shelf Titanium-2 silencers that they sell. So basically, it looks like they took a standard titanium-2 silencer and replaced the aluminum body with a ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is this just how 2 strokes are?? 8/13/2014 12:54 PM
I have a 2006. I replaced my shift stopper before it came apart. Honestly, if it was me I would split the cases and do it right. But that's based on my personal situation of being able to do it myself and not being too worried about paying for whatever ... more »

If that bearing was gone on the stopper, that means it came apart and went through the tranny. The only right way to fix it is to split the cases, inspect everything (gears, shafts, bearings, etc) and replace anything that shows signs of damage. The ... more »

Couple thoughts. You should never have to use 1st on an MX track. If you feel you need 1st gear, you either need to carry more momentum in the turns or get lower gearing. For reference, stock is 13/48. Make sure someone didn't put something weird on ... more »
Added reply in a thread 320mm rotor too much? 8/13/2014 9:36 AM
320mm is for supermoto. Way too much power for the available traction of a skinny knobby on dirt. And it will get destroyed in ruts. No one runs a 320 for MX. The 280mm available from Motostuff should be more than enough power for anyone for MX.

The 01 CR250 uses the Mikuni TMX carb. Same carb that is used on many other bikes including all modern YZ125's. Luckily, the TMX has a replaceable needle and seat for the float. Likely you may need this. Honda sells the 2 parts separately but Yamaha ... more »

After you remove the tank, seat, airbox.. all the stuff above the engine you need to get out of the way, use compressed air to blow out the spark plug well. Maybe even spray some contact cleaner down in there first to loosen up any dirt. Then wipe off ... more »

Exactly, you will lose a little disconnecting the pump and also lose a little reconnecting to check how much you lost! The trick is to try to be consistent with how you disconnect it. Been dealing with this for years on mountain bikes (which have a much ... more »

The 95 CR250 had like 3 different recalls on it. Fork lugs, coolant passage in cases, and ?? drawing a blank on the 3rd. Crank maybe? I remember some owners being quite pissed with their purchase back then.
Added reply in a thread The First turn.....WTF 8/11/2014 8:56 AM
Build a bank turn on the outside and widen it. I realize there's only so much space to work with but I think it could be done. You don't see bikes running wide outside the first turn at Glen Helen and that is the longest and fastest start around.

Is it possible to use a newer bottom clamp on the 96 bike? Maybe press the older 96 stem into the newer clamp? Or is the width between the legs different or something else?

Haven't seen it anywhere in this thread... Do sprint car drivers have radio comms with their crew? Or more specifically, did Stewart have radio comms with his crew?
