Added reply in a thread External Fuel Pumps to replace in tank fuel pump 2/20/2020 7:51 PM

Could you use a tiny on demand pump to move fuel to the main tank once it gets low enough?

Added reply in a thread 2 stroke or 4 stroke. Dont hate me please. 2/14/2020 9:36 AM

Don't pass up a good CR or RM 250. The RM's have the hardest hitting power of the three, but their ability to carve a corner is excellent. The 02+ CR250's have arguably the best chassis and have a milder feeling powerband with lots of top-end pull when ... more »

Added reply in a thread LS2 Helmets any good? 2/13/2020 9:41 PM

I did try it. The visor is very flexible and the video looked a bit like I was having a seizure while riding. Also, with the camera out that far the weight was very noticeable. I also tried using one of the mouth straps and it didn't work either. Eventually ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2001 RM125 Right Side Case 2/13/2020 9:02 PM

I might have some case parts from an 02, are you looking for the right side center case, the clutch cover, or the case that's between the two (which houses the water pump)?

Added reply in a thread LS2 Helmets any good? 2/13/2020 1:20 PM

I have a Subverter which I like. Lightweight, comfy, crazy amount of ventilation (like finding dirt in your hair from so much venting). Well made too. Couple of things I don't care for: 1: no decent place to mount a GoPro. 2: zero customer service. I ... more »

Added reply in a thread ADVICE NEEDED - Folding Aluminum Ramp for 4x4 GMC AT4 Pick-Up with a 2" Lift 2/13/2020 1:04 PM

Used this one on my 4" lifted Dodge with 35" tires: https://www.harborfreight.com/super-wide-tri-fold-loading-ramp-90018.html I currently use it on my 2 wheel drive Chevy. The extra width is simply awesome at the end of a long riding day, and it's actually ... more »

Don't do a sleeve, either roll the dice on a used cylinder or have yours re-nicasiled. Sleeves were great- in 1970.

Added reply in a thread CR250 Overheating 2/9/2020 5:37 PM

Check your clutch. My friend chased an overheating issue for quite some time on his 250F, it ended up being plates and springs that were slipping just enough to create lots of heat, but not enough to be really noticeable from a power perspective.

Interesting. My welding, drumming, painting and hand writing skills all suck. Heavily biased right handed.

They fit a round head better than a long one. I bought one and could feel the forward-most disk pressing into my forehead. Fortunately a friend of mine has a more rounded noggin and loves it.

Added reply in a thread 5’7 and 155 pounds which 250F would best fit me? 2/4/2020 9:26 PM

You and I are the same size, and my son is 5'5" @ 130lbs. Neither of us have ever lowered any of our bikes. If you're trail riding a lower seat is a nice thing to have, as is the e-start when stalling the bike on a hillside.

Added reply in a thread Cr500 fork options? 2/1/2020 1:11 PM

I adapted a complete 03 CR250 front end on my 89. Needed the All Balls conversion headset bearings and it bolted right up. Modified stops would have been next had I kept it.

Try- red frame, blue seat, white ATK tank graphic with blue outline, and the front fender sticker.

Added reply in a thread JS7 Breaks Down Round 3: Anaheim 2 1/24/2020 10:46 AM

Completely avoided the 250 class and it's controversy. While I can't blame him, it would have been interesting to get Bubba's take.

Started new thread More durable- Powdercoat or Nickle Plating? 1/24/2020 9:51 AM

As the topic states, I'm wondering which would last longer against rock chips- powder coating or nickle plating? Going to start my 04 YZ250 build soon, and am thinking of using one or the other for the swingarm.

Added reply in a thread Body Armor (RXR) and some others 1/20/2020 9:57 PM

Been using RXR for years, very happy with the quality. My son ran the old style, and I've been using the Bullet for about 2 years (the Bullet is much better than the original style). I have the arm guards, but have never used them.

Added reply in a thread It finally happened to me 1/20/2020 9:49 PM

My son compression fractured T6, T8 and T9. 3-4 months later he was back to a normal, super active life. Back brace for a few weeks, then took it easy for several more. Admittedly he was a 15 year old in phenomenal shape, but excepting a longer time ... more »
