Added reply in a thread 250 2-stroke fuel efficiency 5/26/2017 12:27 AM

The difference in my fuel bill going from a 250 2 stroke to a 450 has been crazy. I use about £7 worth of fuel less each day of riding. Plus the premix oil worked out to be about £3.50. So that's a £10 saving on fuel alone each ride day going to a 450 ... more »

What's the deal with the rear brake? It's not a regular 05 rear caliper, almost looks like one off a '97? Or is it a factory unit.

Nice one thanks for that FahQ Looks really good! I emailed Talon UK who are the Braking distributor for the UK. They only have a disc in stock and not the adapter. I think I'm going to struggle to track one down but will keep searching, hopefully one ... more »

Was waiting for someone to mention the RM250. Carmichaels 05 RM250 sounded crisp with that factory carbon R304. Pretty sure its even shorter than the off the shelf R304 which is also super raspy! Also agree on the RMZ450 with a Yoshi pipe. I love giving ... more »

An NECJ in clip 2 is a touch on the lean side. There would be no harm in going to the middle 3rd clip and seeing how it runs. Your main is also a touch lean. I ran 168/170 in my RM, but then I am in a different country with different fuel etc to you ... more »

Thanks for the responses guys! Good shout on the CRF master cylinder, read of a lot of people using them, even on the modern bikes as they are said to be the best Nissin master cylinder. Awesome news on the oversize kit! I will start searching around ... more »

Honestly I'd say every ride is a little OTT for changing oil. If you use good quality stuff you can easily get 3 hours out of it. I change my oil every 5 hours and it still looks good then. I would recommend changing the oil filter at every oil change ... more »

Bit of a long shot but I'm struggling with the stock front brake on my 1989 Suzuki RM250. The whole system is fairly worn but in working condition, but in terms of power it is very weak. Even with new pads, disc, master cylinder rebuild, fresh fluid ... more »

Added reply in a thread Does anyone else feel like the Outdoors 450 class could be kinda thin? 5/16/2017 12:14 AM

The battling for the wins could be thin, but I think the racing from 3rd through to 10th and beyond could be fantastic, I just hope the TV guys manage to pick up on these battles and show them instead of just watching Tomac lay down blistering laps out ... more »

Should definitely be lighter. The chassis and bodywork are majorly different and will no doubt shed some decent weight. The new bodywork is lot more minimal than the current RMZ plastic. Also a lot of minor changes such as rear brake, airbox, subframe ... more »

Haha completely understand! In case you don't know, an Ohlins TTX shock from most model RMZ's will fit the RM. I've got an older model TTX from an 08 RMZ250 on my RM250. Serviced and revalved by Kais Ohlins to suit (did an awesome job) And if you really

Ah. Thinking about it, in all my years of browsing for RM parts I've never come across an Ohlins internal kit for one. So you may struggle. There are a few UK Ohlins distributors so no harm in trying them all, alternatively contact Ohlins direct. Any ... more »
