What lesson did you learn? You need to work on your shit before it blows up? Ya thats a good lesson. Any bike will eventually fail you if you neglect it enough. The way a bike runs is a reflection of its owner.

im am usually pretty good about maintinance. oill change and air filter cleaned after ever ride aswell as a complete and thourough wash. i was acutally planning on doing a top end on it (was waiting for my neighbor to sell his KTM, so that i could use his scissor lift table to work on my 250) i dont know if its so much as neglect, as it is just wear and tear, and bad luck. ive had the bike for a little over a year, but we ride alot (everweekend at least...) and knowing that, ur right, i prolly should have sheduled some motor work a little sooner.

Just wait until the 426 goes it will all bikes have there time. The 426 will cost you atleast twice as much as the 250 will to rebuild.

Boy, tough crowd in this thread. Even well maintained bikes can blow up. Just ask James Stewart.

Hopefully your 426 gives you many trouble free years. Treat 'er right and chances are she will.

bikes are meant to be destroyed, the 2 stroke will never suck. They are so simple, light and affordable. The thumper is a heavy, complicated pile....but it delivers such a smooth, usable powerband.

I think you are trying to say, dirtsbikes are meant to be rebuilt....if you maintain a 4stroke correctly, the chances of it blowing up are slim.....but when or if it does....it does sux on your wallet.:mad:
