Hi new member to the forum not sure if this is the best way to message you a question but I came across one of your reply's about also being an RM lover and you had a couple solutions to their shifting problems.

- 3rd and 4th drive gear and 5th driven tend to wear out on the dogs about every 60 hours running time (on average)Theres a shim washer and circlip on the back of 3rd drive gear thats a little too thin and allows 3rd to 'float' a little too much. We add a thicker shim washer there, and also a more heavy duty circlip- the stock circlip can concave (or pop off all together) if you stomp on the gear lever too hard, allowing the gear to move where it shouldnt. This will make your gearbox last alot longer!
Also, when you check your clutch you might want to check the gear selector pin as we have had these work loose after a few hours- we normally remove them and loctite them when we get the bikes, same with the screws on the selector barrel.

I was wondering where you sourced the thicker shim washer and heavy duty circlip? From a different model 450? Thanks for any help, I have a real clean 06 RM250 and love the bike, actually want another one but am starting to feel those 3rd gear problems.

truth hurts! Holland deserved the win today- unfortunate for GB that tommys bike blew up whilst running 4th or we would have been in with a good shout at the overall win. You guys weren't in it all weekend, not on the pace at all. In your own backyard! ... more »

i think plessinger will have a hard time beating prado Lawrence or vlanderen. unless he gets a good start. you've got to favour prado to get a start against 450s though? hes tiny compared to plessinger. skills wise theres probably not alot in it but ... more »

love this! bringing out the yank excuse book circa 2006 when bubba got schooled by everts.. ready for the inevitable herlings domination in your own back yard. herlings goes 1-1 and holland take home the Chamberlain trophy.
