The guy at Taylor's performance, he owns the place and he's a good friend of ours and he was telling us his price

Then he is getting ripped off as well :/

I think I am on the 3rd clip needle, 168/48 50 leak jet.

I have some DOT tires you can borrow for the inspection. parts are about $100 for mirrors, horn, signals. I have reflectors and fender extension

wow thanks for the offer. where bouts are you? and what do you think i will be into it total to get everything i need to get a plate? still need endorsement too.

i dont get why our jetting is so different? my 45 pilot jet only gives me 1/4 turn on the fuel screw. doesn't that mean i need a smaller pilot?

I installed a '12 YZF450 front fender...I had to "modify" it a bit but it turned out sweet. Sorry about the dark pic. I'll try to post the other ones.

They work great. Plenty of coverage, well made...I like them. I also bought the moose aluminum guards as well, but haven't installed them yet, so far I like just the hand guards.....BTW yes my bike is in my living room. No Garage to work in lol

I recently moved to a place without a garage or shed, and i rented a 10x10 storage unit for 80 bucks, month to month, no contract, and the first month was free. the lady was real cool about me using it to work on my bike and keep it there. its also right near where i ride. its great, i can take the sub frame off and just leave it be if something comes up and I can just finish it the next day. 5x10 would work also but the extra 5 wide helps for working on it...

not to mention it gives me an excuse to get away from the ole' ball and chain, hah

That looks really good on there.. But really, I would be more concerned about getting a skid plate and radiator braces/guards on first.

I made a spike tire for snow with the spare wheel.

The front is on a CR wheel.. Need to get a WR wheel or hub and I will have a good winter set. Snow chains to go with too

I used super tough clear poly stuff to line the tube

they are next on the list. As far as skidplates, I'm not sure which way I should go Carbon fiber, aluminum, or the poly moose one? Any help would be much appreciated

Aluminum all the way. I have mashed aluminum ones, if they were carbon or plastic they might as well have been paper.

I like my ricochet. Its made in usa and fits well

Is there a special procedure to removing the tail light? Or do you just disconnect it and forgot about it? I'm going to the yz rear as well.

I just unplugged mine and tucked the wires back underneath the seat for re use some day. My boy went to the yz fender as well.

Unplugged and black tape. Hopefully won't wreck anything. Will reuse once I get a dual sport kit I am sure.

Yup! Forgot about the black tape thing. That of course is a must! I don't know about the cutting of the fender??? My 18 year old installed it and did not mention cutting it but he did say there were a couple of small issues but he gotter done.

Put the 2012 yz front fender on.

I reinstalled the airbox snorkel, the amount of dirt that gets let into the air box without the snorkel clogs up the airfilter and cancels out any improvement.

I would highly discourage the removal of this item, its absolutely retarded unless your strictly riding you are bike on roads only..

I bought some new stainless steel hardware from lowes to replace the GARBAGE that came with the cyrca handgaurds...

After a very minor crash the aluminum bolt bent and plastic bushing completely snapped in half. I barely layed the bike down....

      I live in northwest Virginia (Charlottesville area)  about an hour south of DC, I am not aware of any tracks in the area that are either public (or private but allow people to ride with permission).  Does anyone know of any good tracks in my area?

      Hello,
      For this summer, I was looking for a project. As a desert/trial, and occasionally single track rider from Southern California, any time of the year works for a build like this.
      I grew up riding two-stroke and after a couple years on four strokes, I want to return to the enduro king. However, KTM and Husky sell their bikes for quite a high price tag.
      So, I have decided I want to take an older two stroke motocross bike i.e. cr250, yz250, etc., and make it the ultimate desert bike for significantly less than a new KTM.
      I am not loyal to one brand, but I have always loved Honda and spent a grand a month ago on all new gear with Honda's name plastered all over it. 
      I know all the mods I want to do the bikes to make them enduro/desert ready: heavy flywheel, 18 inch rear wheel, new exhaust, steering stabilizer, etc.
      What I need help in is I don't know what bikes I can install a wide ratio transmission in. I know yz250 can take a 400 or 426 transmission, but can any other brand?
      I would like to see a cr250 with the gears of a 450x rippin through the desert. I like the steel frame for off road use, and I just need some advice on the best bike for this conversion.
      Thanks

      For sale is my 2007 YZ250F. This bike is very well setup for trails or harescrambles. I am not the original owner, but have service records. This bike has been well maintained and runs great. Starts first or second kick. Engine and transmission rebuilt about 10hrs ago and I just did a valve clearance check and shim. There are over $3000 worth of parts on this bike. I also have a couple boxes of OEM and aftermarket spares that I will sell for extra. Only issues are a leaky left fork seal (I have the OEM fork seal replacement kit and will include with purchase) and the radiators are slightly twisted, but 100% functional. I have two brand new replacement radiators with a radiator guard/brace that I can throw in if sold at asking price. I am asking $3200 OBO. Please contact me via email in Craigslist ad or PM me here. Located in Fishersville, VA.
