I think the o-ring got eaten away as the pitting propogated towards it...definitely didn't help things once that started happening. Good thing I tore it down when I did instead of continuing to ride. I'll definitely keep an eye on things once I get it ... more »

I just ordered a dial gauge so I can get the timing spot on. Powerseal also said they'll cut .010" out of the head squish. Between those and a new crank seal I should be good. Thanks!

I have heard these engines can be finicky on pump. Luckily I have the cylinder and head at Powerseal USA for repair right now, I'll see what they can do with the head to fix the sqish gap. Thanks!

Hoping you guys can give me some insight into this! 09 YZ I bought last Jan, Did a top end this summer after it started losing power/compression. Noticed some slight pitting, thought maybe it was detonating due to pump gas and advanced timing so I set

I believe he hit a tuff block in the whoops and ate it pretty hard. Didn't watch long long enough to hear how he was afterwards.

Are you sure this applies to black friday? It says "TODAY'S (11/24/14) PROMOTION HAS ENDED". I could use a few sets!

This. The study probably makes no sense to anyone without an engineering and/or medical degree of some sort. As an engineer, it made enough sense that I will continue to wear mine. With that being said, I do agree that there may be certain situations ... more »

I pull a 4'X7' harbor freight trailer with my stage 2 04 WRX and you can barely tell it's there. About to swap it out for my 07 Sti, can't wait to see the looks I get! Using a Curt hitch.

I have an impact wrench, grinder, 1/2" sockets, and torque wrench. All have held up to occasional use but I can't say I have 100% confidence in the torque wrench.

Aluminum is a metal. If you mean steel engine mounts, then no, you can't weld steel to aluminum. You wouldn't lose any torque, but would definitely lose chassis stiffness.

I assumed the worst after I saw their post on FB that sunday practice was cancelled. Good to hear the situation was handled well. RIP fellow rider, thoughts and prayers to the family and friends.

Added reply in a thread good on Mookie 2/3/2014 7:32 AM

IMO this was pretty comparable to a block pass situation in any other sx turn. Once mookie realizes Anderson was going for the outside he stood his bike up a bit and tried to cut Anderson off (Mookies line just looked unnatural to me). Neither rider ... more »

I was in your same boat back in the day. I had wanted a dirt bike for as long as I could remember but my parents were pretty against it. Took me until I was about your age (14 or 15) to prevail. I'm still not sure how I pulled it off but it was probably ... more »

Awesome! 09 yz250...look for the guy getting arm pump after the first lap. How's the parking and staging area set up? Cost? Their website is rather lacking.

Does anyone want to ride at switchback this sunday or maybe next weekend? Just picked up a yz250 after a 2 yr. hiatus and itching to get back on the track. Also, looking to make some trips down south (VA,NC) this winter. If anyone is interested in getting ... more »
