Added reply in a thread 2006 CRF250R hard start, possibly electrical? 3/29/2016 7:25 AM
Just a thought, but those motors can be tricky when it come to aligning the cam back up. I ran into this a while ago the first time I adjusted valves. The cam chain was one tooth off yet looked ok, maybe its worth double checking.

If it were me I would not take a chance at all. Just split the cases, clean everything up and while in there replace whatever needs to be replaced. I know its a pain in ass but I would not want to take a bike far out into the woods and know there could ... more »

I have the exact same bikes and its funny the ratio is about the same for me. I ride the 125 when I want to get back in touch with my wild side!

Just going to add my 2 cents because I have had a strange issue with a few of the CRs I have had. I have an 02, while riding one day it felt like the throttle got stuck open so I pulled in the clutch and pushed the kill switched, nothing happened, it ... more »
Added reply in a thread whats wrong with my 2 stroke?! 12/1/2015 7:10 AM
Start with this^^^ I have seen this a few times before. The spark plug may be sparking but at completely the wrong time. Few other ideas. Take the plug out and spray in some starting fluid (just a little) and see if you can get the bike to fire for a ... more »

What is it your asking people to do? You want people to spend serious money so we see a pro qualify for a national on a 2stroke? If I have 8k around I am going to put it down on a new camper. I have a couple of 2 strokes, 2002 cr250 and a 2003 CR125. ... more »

I never talk about moto to anyone expect motocross people. Its not that I am embarrassed about racing moto. Its just to hard to explain to people why I do it and how difficult the sport really is. Normal people have no idea what the sport is, people ... more »
Added reply in a thread How much could I get for my bike? 6/27/2014 9:46 AM
The truth is your not going to get a lot for it, even though its mint! I did the same thing to a 125, turns out you don't get a lot more money compared to a turd bike. What I noticed is few people wanna spend more than 2500 on any used dirt bike no matter ... more »

I have an 03 125, I did a major rebuild on it before I even rode it. When I got it together it had that same bog you are describing, it just did not seem like a normal 125. Turns out it was my powervalve, I had the gear one tooth off so it was open way ... more »

I did one of the races last year there on my old very tired 86 CR250. I can even begin to tell you the thrill of being on the starting line with a bunch of other guys with bikes from that era. It was one of my favorite races and I cant wait to get back ... more »

A while ago I went through a depression of sorts (I think). At least that's what my shrink said. She pushed anti depressants and other meds but I just did not want to go down that road. She learned from me that riding moto was the best therapy, it was ... more »

Don't be afraid of what's really in the back of Pete's van, he only uses the gag ball and that leather zipper mask thing at night so you should be safe.
