Reply to Crf250R not starting in gear. 5/13/2020 8:38 PM

I have yet to ride a four-stroke that will start in gear reliably. Numerous CRF450s and KX450s. Not one would start in gear with any regularity.

I remember going out to Toes after that and stopping to look at the ramp to dirt of those things that had to be seen to appreciate just how long that is...insane.

Playing devil’s advocate... None of us have been riding public tracks, so I’ve saved way more than the price hike over the last couple months vs what I would’ve spent by now.

Agreed-if you know the story of the Edmund Fitzgerald and hear his song about it, it will give you chills.

Pretty sure I saw a Facebook post by them saying that they were closed through May for all events. Not positive though.

Not sure about PC, but my HGS was 02-04. I believe PC did one pipe for 02 only and one for 03/04. Don’t know what’s different.

Red body scuff pad and comet when you wash the bike. It’ll take it down to shiny silver, but as soon as it warms up it’ll turn amber again.
