Yea they rock... I ordered a chain&sprockets kit and later found out I needed a oil filler plug... They cancelled my first order so I could add the plug and avoid paying shipping on the plug alone... I'm in Canada so that makes a difference and there's ... more »

I thought he was still riding the YZ250F he had in Vegas to tie for 5th overall (or 6th, or 7th?) up until last week... Now he's winning on a KX450F... I think he changed his attitude towards racing since he's done with MotoConcepts. I checked the AX ... more »

New gaskets... It could have been a blown gasket I guess... I'm not really an expert so I can't tell if the old one is blown.

About the valves, they were all at .13mm... one of them was actually 0.125. That's pretty much 0.005 inch. I thought that was tight because in the manual I have it says the EX have to be between .17 and .22mm ... Someone handcarved 017 on the camshaft ... more »

Yea at first my dad thought it was the timing but that's all good. Rings looked top notch as well as cylinder. What could be wrong with the tensioner? It pulls out when I screw the thing in and stays out... About 40 hours on the bike since I got it from ... more »

I have a 2008 KX250F. So I was trail riding on a beautiful day and came across innocent looking wet dirt... So I decided to make it through but there was water underneath the top soil and the rear end quickly sank. The rear wheel was pretty much completely ... more »

Maier crashed off the start with Kiniry and a few others. Maier and Kiniry were hauling ass in their qualifier. JT$ picked it up a bit in his qualifier and then improved a lot more after getting the holeshot in the main - rode real solid.

Yea that's what I did - was just wondering if anyone had a secret tip to make sure the timing is right - I thought it could maybe be off by one pin even if I have the mark lined up with the crack in the hole... Thanks for the help.

I haven't tried to put it back on - getting shims tomorrow... I probably rode 30-40 hours this summer but I got it from the Motosport Kawi team and I dunno if they did reshim before they released the bike.

Started new thread Timing chain installation 9/29/2009 1:52 PM

Hey, I have a '08 KX250F and I took the cams off to change the shims but I didn't mark the timing chain... What's the best way to make sure my timing is right when I put the cams back on? TDC and the marks on the cam would be close but maybe not perfect... ... more »
