Loving this thread, keep it coming! Blown away by how nice that front end is. Those titanium rotor bolts are very trick!

I have a set of Airbrakes. I got them for free with a brand new Shoei Helmet deal. I absolutely love them, the fit, quality and tear off system is fantastic. I have never pulled more than one tear off at a time with the Airbrakes., unlike the O Frames ... more »

Some very knowledgeable guys on here when it comes to jetting. Post up more info such as typical temperatures, altitude, fuel/oil ratio, any engine work etc to get a more accurate response. However from my experience the stock NEDH needle is pretty good. ... more »

Turned out awesome Jez! Great job on the graphics, bold but clean. Looks great. What happened to the factory front plate?

Added reply in a thread Throttle Tubes 12/18/2017 4:11 AM

Apico throttle tubes for me. Not only is the tube well priced but awesome quality. Super smooth and no play at all. I use a little engine oil for lube, gives the best feel I think. I don't like the slight play that a plastic throttle tube gives, any ... more »

Added reply in a thread Frame Flex 12/14/2017 3:54 AM

Same for me. I've ridden my 08 RM250 and 15 RMZ450 back to back on the same track and the difference between the 2 is noticeable, particularly on the really harsh square edge hits. The aluminum frame definitely transfers more to the rider. I've also ... more »

Added reply in a thread Continued Acceleration While off the Throttle 12/11/2017 1:46 AM

As above, check for air leaks and give the throttle and carb and thorough strip down and clean. Also ensure you are running enough slack in the throttle cable. Also check your pilot jet, I've found a lean pilot can make the bike hang in the revs a little. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Brake combos 12/11/2017 12:25 AM

As above, a CRF master cylinder alone is a great mod. But I'm also currently using a CRF front caliper as well and really like it. However I think a lot of the added power and bite is down to the stock Nissin pads I'm running. They are better than any ... more »

Lucky for us quite a lot of the late 90's races are on Youtube. Not the same as watching it live on the night though, I bet it was awesome. Loving this thread, I had no idea he used forks from a CR!

Added reply in a thread How unstable are RM250's? 12/6/2017 11:58 PM

Been riding RM250's since 2010. I think the headshake thing is over exaggerated. Don't get me wrong I've got head shake on the RM several times, but never any worse than on any other bike I've rode. I think the difference is that with Suzuki's you need ... more »

Nice work! Some great pieces on this bike. Love the solid rear rotor. Graphics scheme looks great too. Where did you get the factory front plate from? May I ask how much it cost?

Added reply in a thread Bike setup question 12/5/2017 8:28 AM

More preload will raise the forks in their stroke, so this could be a good start if you feel they are sunk too low in the travel. 4 clicks out is quite stiff. so if your forks are low in the travel this could make them feel harsh. The combination of ... more »

Added reply in a thread Removing the back fire screen 12/4/2017 5:12 AM

Said to improve air flow, saves a little weight too. I used an RM250 cage in my RMZ450 (identical cage just without the screen) Didn't notice much difference, but no harm in giving it a go.
