Simply amazing switch. I swapped a bike I recently sold(cr250), but it was well worth it.

Yup, I've seen THREE in my life. One when I bought a new 2001 CR250, another I bought from my uncle, and the third was the 350 I just bought from Missouri. Almost no one in Wisconsin keeps them. We don't register any of them since they are off-road competition ... more »

I went with the Firepower from RMATVMC Info was much appreciated, especially the info from Paw. I never thought about the abuse part and the battery coming apart inside.

thanks! I know I've seen people talk about using a battery with more aH or CCA's. I just didn't know if anyone had done that to theirs. That is one area I really don't understand, electrical stuff. I usually mutter through with YouTube

Any recommendations on a battery for this bike? It doesn’t hold a charge right now and even when it is charged, it sounds like it struggles to turn it over.

I didn't see an option for me. OLD, FAT, and SLOW, but LOVE riding/racing!

Reply to My turn - spoke with my wallet 9/9/2019 6:02 AM

I know the spoke with my wallet deal, but I sold the 2-stroke, so I was half in the right! LOL. I definitely didn't want to sell it, but every time I tipped over or crashed, I had to push my bike to a place where I could stand on something to start it. ... more »

Nice long 14 hour round trip drive to pick up this low hour(7.9) 2018 KTM 350. Had to sell my 07 cr250 because I'm short and my knee braces made it almost impossible to kick start it anymore. Oh well, time to move on!

If the piston you are holding matches the damage on the exhaust port, I'm almost positive that piston was in backwards.

Just fixing shit, SEEMEFIRST hit it on the head, get a Lincoln or Miller MIG and weld away. You can get a book to help understand a bit better. Just have fun with it while you learn.

I agree, but where I work, we are the ones getting shit on. Prior to me, there was 2 IT managers over a 5 year period. On was here a year, then no manager for 1.5 years. The next one only made it 6 months, then another 1+ with no manager. I've been cleaning ... more »

Our local 2 year college has a welding certification. There is a basic welding class that briefly covers torch, mig, tig, and stick. If you have a local place that hires welders, stop in and ask them what you need to learn to get a job there. They may ... more »

Reply to Perfect example of what is wrong with "higher education" 8/19/2019 8:48 AM

College loan programs need a makeover. They need to cap them based on earning potential in the field you are studying! These garbage degrees will just go away then and kids won't rack up 6 figure loans. Granted, I graduated college in 1994, but came ... more »

In my opinion, he needs help with one thing and one thing only - FOCUS. He seems to lose focus making one small mistake costing him either places, or injuring him. He is fast, no doubt. I think if his focus improves, his confidence goes up, he runs in ... more »
