    JETTING: KX125 at 6000'

    about 8% leaner should get you in the ballpark NM. I ride here at 6k on up to 10k and just recently jettied an '05 YZ125 for here. Went from a 410 main to a 370 and a 40 pilot to a 37.5 or 35, forget which. If you are riding at 6k on down lower, then be a little rich at 6k.

    Hey Super-P!! Yup still around. See my post in 4 strokes. Got a dead 250x :-( Only 400 miles too. The monty has sat for a year. Gonna get it out this spring though for sure. Got busy moving (again), working on the new (if you call 1908 new) house, and being a good slumlord over the...

    Montesa COTA 315R

    Aaron - You really need to get your hands on the owner's manual for your year bike. It has it all in there.

    2004 xr250r mods advice

    you and me both Brother. You gonna drag that underpowered ill-handling POS up here this year or what? Maybe we'd both be better off trading them for an XR 400 :-)Riding season has started in the southern part of the state about 1.5 hrs from here. Also Utah is primo right now. Leo.

    2004 xr250r mods advice

    The 250 and 400 are very different bikes. VERY DIFFERENT. It is not just about displacement and power. I have no plans to sell my bike. I made it for me to ride, not to sell. Opinions are like a-holes - everybody has one.

    CRF 250 using oil

    Rich - have you had any clutch slippage issues with the Diesel oil in your bikes? I tried Shell Rotella T in two bikes (70s Yamahas) and both slipped the clutch. Switching back to a non-diesel 10w40 made the problem go away. Is it possible the issue was the temp of the oil, in that the 2...

    2004 xr250r mods advice

    Stock bore for a while? Here are the XR250R basics. Pull the snorkel. Replace filter basket with a UNI plastic model, or cut the wire mesh out of the stocker (lots of opinions yes/no on this mod). Replace the baffle with a '98 and later XR400 baffle. Don't run without a baffle in the...

    89 Cagiva WMX 250 2 stroke rebuild

    Getting the nuts off - might have to resort to a dremel, hammer, and chisel to cut the nut off. Try to keep from tearing up the stud threads in the process.

    XR250 won't start

    Hey Super P - My 280 is still down. Decided to change the rear shock oil, and in the process of removing it found some bad pivot and swingarm bearings. Then while the rear wheel is sitting there, I look over the wheel bearings... one of them is stuck too! Can't wait to see how it runs...

    Need advice on trials tires.

    the size is governed by the FIM for trials competition, hence the reason there is no real trials tire any bigger than that. You might find a "trials universal pattern" tire bigger, but that is not a trials tire by any stretch of the imagination. Ray Peters ran trials tires on a Husky TE610...

    Any suggestions?? HANG ON TIGHT!!!!! After one ride on a 525, you'll understand why Heroin is so popular.

    XR250 won't start

    Basic XR setup is to look at the float level and travel. Generally the level needs lowered and the travel reduced. There are some good how-tos on the internet - just do a yahoo search on "XR Float Level" and see what you get. My experience mirror's Patmans on my XR280 and 600 - a dozen or...

    '99 XR250R rear shock removal

    Hello - What is the easiest way to get the rear shock off? I need to take mine in for service. Given the age of the bike, I should take the whole rear end apart and check/grease anyway, bot for now to get the shock over to the mechanic, what is the best way to get it out? Thanks!!

    CRF230 Front fork problem

    I'd check with the dealer and get the torque specs for the clamp bolts. Makle sure the bolts are set at the correct torque. Secondly, the bike came with a pretty good warranty - the paper is in the garage but I think it was 6 months. If all else fails, take it to the dealer and let them...

    won't idle??

    Turn the choke knob counter clockwise when looking at it from the top to raise the idle. You still have to make sure your pilot jet and air screw are set right as well for your altitude, fuel, and engine mods in order to have it idle correctly.

    XR400 looking for head mods

    Hey Super-Pee - My 278 will be a 12:1 284 this week. My 278 bore was not very straight and the apparent cause of my oil consumption woes. Won't be a total rip-snorter like yours but should do a little better than the 10.5:1 278 that was in thar... specially at altitude. The XR6 BWP is...

    Question: Beta or Monty?

    The Beta and Monty have the highest quality frames out there in the current trials market, being monocoque aluminum jobs made by Verlicchi in Italy. This makes them good mounts for the heavier rider who does not have asperations or winning the champ line. The beta motor gives you one more...

    Winterizing TTR-250

    My regiment is pretty simple, plus it keeps the bike ridable for when one of those midwestern heat spells blows in in February. Fuel - get a container of Sta-bil at the local wal mart or auto parts store. Put the recommended amount in the tank, slosh it around, and run the bike around for...

    XR600R vs. XR650L

    we can agree to disagree on the cv vs. slide carb. having an extra butterfly in there does not help, nor does having to wait for the slide to react to the change in pressure caused by the moving of said butterfly. The DRZ street vs dirt bike has the same issue. having ridden modded versions...

    XR600R vs. XR650L

    Can't agree on the CV carb issue AT ALL. Plus, the CV carb can be a real bitch to jet once you start messing with the exhaust and intanke on the L, then throw in altitiude. The orafice effecting the slide rate and the spring has to be monkeyed with on the Lug carb. It uses funky little hard...
