On my 97 rm250 I drilled about six relatively small holes in the back of my clutch basket and on the the basket and drive plate I drilled a few tiny holes to allow more oil into the clutch , and after that I could put it in ANY gear while the engine ... more »

Better yet would be to add a small battery of some kind and hook it into the charging system that would keep the headlight a constant brightness. I’ve heard of some using the very flat kind used in rc car racing.

On my 14 I found the two-wire connector near the steering head and simply wired a headlight into that. I added an on/off switch and a switch with one side containing a resistor that cut the voltage to 6 bolts as a “dim” switch and it worked great.

The 96 RM250 dyno’ed on the Dirt Rider dyno at 46 horsepower. What messed it up was a one piece power valve that had a tendency to stick open due to heat warping it in the chamber. In 97 it had a two piece valve and steel sub valves instead of aluminum ... more »

Added reply in a thread 1987 Quadsport 230- any big bore or cams available? 2/12/2021 1:55 PM

I can find oem but I’d like something to give it a little more power. You’d think these were popular back in the day that there would be some kind of big bore kits at least but I’ve found nothing. On the TTR-225 front I realized that these are the same ... more »

Sorry for the quad question but I’m desperate! I’ve googled and eBayed and can’t find ANY type of mild hop-up or replacement cams for my basket case 87 quadsport I’m building. Does anyone have a clue? I’m also looking for a cam for the stupid 2007 ttr-225 ... more »

I found out that they still make the panel I need lol. If you have a decent side panel with the cutout for the gas petcock I might still be interested tho. Also I need the small air box cover panels, I think there are one on each side. It took two days ... more »

Just a note for reference: in an old dirt rider magazine I have, Yamaha engineer Ken Clark says to ALWAYS use the ‘C’ piston in ANY yz cylinder regardless of the letter the cylinder has on it because it’s safe and makes better power due to better tolerances. ... more »

I would imagine that any newer model cr80-85 with the same type of forks would use the same fenders. I’m assuming the 89 has the 35mm conventional fork, and Honda at some point went to the USD fork so probably any year front fender from a conventional ... more »

That’s an older engine than an 85 I believe. It looks like a 79cc bore (which most 80’s had til about 1985 when they all went to 82.9cc which was the legal limit in the class).

Every time I’m on a pro rider’s Instagram and I see a “fan” wishing them injuries or being a piece of shit to the pro it makes me think “what kind of person would do this shit?”; then I come on vital and see posts like this and I say “ohhh. Ok.”

According to that article the disc setup was heavier than the drum brake setup which used a magnesium backing plate

This is an example of the kind of shitheads that’ll go on a riders Instagram and act like a retard. Idiots want to show how smart they are when it adds zero to the discussion.
