  1. Spokes loosen every ride

    The holes might be egged out, but from what I can tell the rim and hub is in good shape. I've been looking on ebay and craigslist for a new(er) set of wheels. Do you know if any set of wheels would work or if I need to stick to wheels from my generation?
  2. Spokes loosen every ride

    I've got a '89 RM250 just about after every ride some of the spokes on the rear wheel loosen up, so I just snug them back up. As far as I know the wheel has never been respoked. Should I loosen up each spoke a couple threads and put some lock tite on them?

    You could always rebuild the current shock
  8. my old new bike

    Don't forget to clean the carb. I wouldnt do a bandaid fix for the exhaust leak, just go order a new gasket and springs, it won't be that expensive.

  10. what's the mix

    32:1 is a safe mix, but I like to run my RM250 with 40:1. You should be fine with either one though
