That's where Beta set up the fuel draw to stop. Completely normal

I forgot to mention, I did replace the shaft in mine when I did it. The Honda service manual says it's required, so I did. Like I said...got it to the correct depth, and no issues since

Then there's the lack of podium interviews...what happened with that?

Weight is less of a concern than aerodynamics when towing. I've seen YouTube videos of Tesla vehicles towing. It's been shown that there are range reductions when towing at highway speeds of up to 75%. I'll keep my ICE truck for towing, thank you.

It's all good. Just trying to help a brother out. Not exactly local. About 2 hours from Mansfield. Won my first harescramble at Mansfield M/C back in 2009

8° BTDC is the ignition timing at 2000RPM. The other two marks, as I said, are for TDC, and cam timing. The manual is poorly written. You obviously got it right since your bike runs...but OP bike does not. So I think the manual got him sent in the wrong ... more »

OP says he did that and his bike won't run. I say he's on the wrong mark. In the end I don't care what happens. Not my bike. Just trying to help a brother out, but if you want to argue that's fine. I concede. When he wants his bike to run he can do it ... more »

The mark next to TDC is for cam timing. The other (the single) mark is ignition. I raced a similar engine for several years....the manual is misleading...I rebuilt that engine 8 times over the course of my time with it, so I know of what I speak. If ... more »

Use the timing mark next to TDC. The one which is well advanced of that is the ignition timing. One tooth off is enough to make it not run. You put a new cam chain in too, didn't you? I had one stretch enough that the bike wouldn't start when I put it ... more »

They already can't do that because the broadcast are owned by MXSports, and licensed to whichever network is broadcasting the event

How many marks are on the flywheel? There should be 3. One is ignition timing, next is TDC, then is cam timing. Valve clearance is checked at TDC, cam timing is the mark next to it. Same process as in 2004 with the 1st gen engine

You said your dots are aligned and 28 pins apart with the piston at TDC? you don't set cam timing at TDC on that engine. It has a cam timing mark also. That's what needs to be lined up when the dots are properly aligned.

Good luck and be certain you press it in square and to the correct depth. I did mine in my CRF450RX, and no trouble after that

Added reply in a thread Reliability of 250F Big bores 5/8/2021 8:57 AM

In my old 250f I ran a Athena 290 kit. Reliability was excellent, installation was easy, with the fit and finish being excellent. They're a bit pricier than other brands, but worth it in my opinion. Didn't have any issues with rod or main bearings either. ... more »

He'll do better than that. I'd expect him to be a top 10 guy. 15-20 in SX if he ran it

You can run the ziptie over the rubber boot also. It'll still work. (Did just that with my old RM250...ran it like that for years).
