That bike was all original, including the tires. I did swap out the buckhorn bars for some old school flat track bars. I bought it non-running, but in the condition you see in the pics. Had to clean the carbs, put a liner in the tank, and a new ignition ... more »

When I was a kid Ek used to stay at the Sheraton near our house. We always knew when he was there because his rig would be in the parking lot. I hung out in the lobby to meet him and got his autograph.

Sounds like you need to adjust your Lectron to a richer setting. Use a flat blade screw driver bit and turn the screw on top of the carb out slightly. Make small adjustments. Start with turning it out about 1/8 of a turn.

This was around 2000. He was referencing steel frame bikes. He rode two different brands.

They stretch. I know a fast A rider who back in the day would measure the distance between the swing arm pivot and the front axle on his bikes when they were new, and compare it to the measurement after a year. It would be an inch longer.

I replaced my old Stihl BR600 with a brand new BR700 about a year ago. I could not tell much difference in performance. The new one sure starts easier. I am happy with the BR700.

I remember people swapping the sub frame, seat, air box, side panels, rear fender, etc. from ‘95 -‘96 CR250’s on to CR500’s. If I remember correctly, everything lines up and bolts on.

We have about a 5 mile tight woods loop that we’ve been riding for years. We usually do 6 laps for a quick trail ride. With the original carb on the CR I would normally burn over a half a tank in the 30 miles. With the Lectron the fuel level only drops

Added reply in a thread Airstriker vs Lectron 4/23/2019 5:49 AM

I think it depends on what you are doing with the bike. In tight woods, nothing runs as crisp and clean as a properly dialed in Lectron. You do have to dial them in. All of the adjustments are done externally by turning screws. But for motocross, I’d ... more »

There is a monthly car show in the Perimeter Mall (Dunwoody, GA) parking lot the first Sunday of every month. It’s called Caffeine and Octane. It is supposed to be the largest monthly car show in the country. Lots of cool cars.

That guy on Graveyard Cars does amazing restorations. My neighbor’s brother has a ‘71 ‘Cuda. I want to say it is a 340 six pack. He’s owned it for 35+ years. I’ll try to get a pic of it.
