My buddy has a 2001 xr250r. It is 8 months old and the front sprocket is worn and missing a tooth, the rear sprocket is worn almost to where no teeth are left. Are the stock sprockets cheap, or is it something he is doing?
Any suggestions on a good front and rear sprocket?
Thanks.

I have always had great luck with Renthal sprockets and bars! Ran them for years without maintenance. The stockers are a compromise for sure.

i seem to be having good luck with sunstar on my 650r, they should hold up good under 250 power. sounds to me he rides that bike hard to kill the stocks already or the chain is improperly adjusted?

I run the Sidewinder stainless. It is amazing but heavy. I use my 650 in races like the Nevada 2000 and Vegas to Reno.

Sorry, I meant 2001 as you probably know, I sent my entry in today, I'll be racing in the Ironman Am. Im totally stoaked, I too can only think about the race. I lined up two sponsers for the race and also worked out a full pit crew for the race. I've ridden alot in the Nevada area and have ridden up to 330 miles in one day of pleasure riding but never 526mi. I've raced some BITD events before but not the Vegas to Reno, Is there any advice you could give me??? Thanks

Dan,
I have raced BitD in 7200 class the last 3 years. One thing I have found every year is guys running ironman are zombies at the finish line. I can't imagine what it takes to do that race solo on a bike. :) It's a long day in our truck. I'm sure it's nothing compared to racing a bike 526 miles. I race my XR650R in hour long GP's and I'm whooped.
Best of luck and stay hydrated.

Kevin

Kev, Thanks for the hydro advice. Im sure if I make it to the finish I'll look (and be) a zombie. I just want to get to Reno before sunset but I know that might be too much to ask for... See ya

Dan, the best advise I could give is stay alive out there. Talk to yourself literally out loud. I think the mental part of ironman racing is the toughest.

Another thing is staying on the course. Dont get excited and overshoot everything. It wastes tons of energy.

I raced to first Ironman Ex in the Nevada 2000(11 th overall) and fell once. I would take off every morning and my goal would be not to overshoot turns. This takes looking far ahead and total concentration at all times. Its even tougher in the dust.Tell yourself "left Dan! Now right!Smooth."

Stay SMOOTH! Write this on your crossbar. Works for me.

Lots of water. Save the bike.

Hope this helps. See ya there!

Dan
