I would also fix the very crappy base valves in the front forks.

Nothing wrong with them I use them in my dirt WR450. They work well. You dial them in for your weight and type of riding. Then I think there is a soft option I picked for my type of riding.

The clutches drag, that's why neutral is hard to find.

I'm very impressed by the Hinson clutch pack that I bought. Very easy to find neutral about like a Honda.

Which Honda? Because my sons 250x is a joke to find neutral. Even Jim from the forum says that fairly standard. My Yamaha is a lot easier.

Hum very interesting didn't know the 250X had a clutch drag. Well the new Hinson clutch feels as though the metal or fiber are thin or made well. When your in gear with the clutch in it's very easy to shift into neutral. It's about like my 1997 XR250.

 

I wonder if a Hinson clutch pack might help in the CRF.
