Put most of my new wrap on this evening, SOR Graphics hooked it up! I am sponsored by SOR for RC racing, he does great work. Swing arm, fork guards and number plates will go on when I put the tires back on it this spring.

What brand over sized radiators did you go with? I'm looking for some that aren't too thick to work with my unabiker guards/braces.

Remove seat, tank, battery, throttle cables, wiring harness to rear number plate, sub-frame, rear shock, top motor mount, and finally carb.

 

Cleaned my carb jets and chopped off the throttle stop screw.

 

Reversed procedure to re-assemble. (sigh) 

 

Damn alum frame bikes.

I think I do , it takes some getting used to though.

 

It almost hooks up too well , I mean it can make you look like a total newb when the front end just keeps popping up

when you are not ready for it .

 

When using the rear brake it actually slows you down.....really good on slow steep descents , but also harder to steer with the rear.

 

Hi speed cornering doesn't feel as good as with a 110 size but was expecting that.

 

It did really well on the loose rocky stuff and of course on the soft stuff it was awesome.

 

Seems like a lot of wear for 1 ride but its a soft tire and I rode mostly hard pack and rocks so we will see how it stands up.

I did the recommended break in and adjustment steps on the street and wow this is pretty frickn awesome !

 

Need to adjust it again cause it was draggin a bit the end and stalled once,  but per the instructions it needs to be adjusted it after break in. 

 

Very smooth , the only thing that's weird is the clutch cable seems to have a lot of tension when the clutch is adjusted per Rekluse .

 

Color me excited to try it on some tight twisty trails .

How do you get on an off with all that gear? I can't imagine swinging my leg over or through all that.

 

I'm jealous though, I want to do some overnight rides camping out of whatever I can carry on my bike some day.

 

 

 

 

I installed my new bigger IMS tank and Seat Concepts seat. attachicon.gifImageUploadedByThumper Talk1396466520.115885.jpg

 

Let us know how you like that seat once you get some time on it. My stock one rubs my ass raw after about 5 hours in the saddle.

      Hey all, recently getting into motocross again and bought a used bike from a kid who lacked on the maintenance side of things for the bike. What I have found / believe is happening is oil is leaking out of the cylinder head breather tube. Before going on my first ride with the bike I had a respectable amount of oil right in the middle of the checkered oil marks on the dip sticks. However after about 5 hours riding I checked the oil to find that it was barely even on the dip stick. I know there has been oil leaking out of the breather but could have been caused because an overflow on the oil change from the kid. I mean the bike is 8 years old maybe it is time for some top end work. On that note would a person change out the piston regardless of condition along with the rings? Is it possible the rings are just not positioned right? I would definitely do the valves while I have the bike open anyways.
       
      Any info would be greatly appreciated I just find it odd that it took 5 hours to drain, reading through other posts some guys were having puddles of oil after 20 minuets of running time.

      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
