Added reply in a thread Vp t4 fuel 10/1/2021 12:30 PM

Added reply in a thread Need help with shops that cut in new valve seats 9/29/2021 8:20 AM

Sounds good. Do you need me to send the new valves with the head to you? Or do you have valves there? I believe these were Ti stock.

Started new thread Need help with shops that cut in new valve seats 9/29/2021 6:23 AM

My nephew has a 2013 RMZ250 that we need to put new valves in. As I understand, the new valves need to have new seats cut in order to seal properly and last the longest. I am in NW IA and wondered if you guys have any contacts for shops with decent turnaround ... more »

That's another one I'm probably guilty of. Odd I don't get cramps in any other muscles.

Added reply in a thread Thumb Muscle Cramps 9/22/2021 1:23 PM

I would say I am definitely guilty of not easing into my pace like I should. I have the same issue on the bicycle too and I don't think I am holding on for dear life on that. Also same issue with screw drivers. I only use electric impacts for bolts and ... more »

Have been dealing with Thenar muscle pain and cramping, the big pad muscle below your thumb. Doc doesn't see much related to carpal tunnel but said possible it could be part of the issue. I've done multiple injections, physical therapy, and bracing. ... more »

5wt oil. I would sure assume the spring rate in the bike from factory is soft for your weight. Try racetech spring rate calculator on their website.

My brother just went through this with his 9 yo boy. Went from PW50 then to a KTM 50. 110s are not a competitive race bike and he wanted his boy to race like his cousins and bought a KTM 65. He was way scared of it and never wanted to ride it much less ... more »

High rpms I guess now that I think of it. At prepped practice I would be going though a rut in 3rd and it would almost sound like it I was pushing the kill switch and then letting off it, probably half throttle and a little over. Once the rpms came down. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Help needed with carb tuning 9/7/2021 6:35 AM

From what I can tell yes. I cleaned and checked movement while I had the engine apart. With the power valve cover off, when I rev the motor it moves. Is there any other way to know if its working correctly?
