You guys need to come watch me suck it up worse than usual. I'll be on a borrowed 250F and not exactly looking forward to it! I have only ridden it one other time and I wasn't exactly comfortable...

My bike is down and out right now...not sure what is wrong with it right now. I hope to find out in the next couple of days. It's actually at the shop :whoa: getting the cases split and having exploratory surgery being done.

Phil will be there both days tearing it up. :cool:

What time are the races ? I have'nt been there in a couple of years. I have'nt had much of a chance to ride this year and could use a little fix even if its just to watch.My two riding buds have been hurt there and don't care to go back.

Sadly, I will not make it. I really wanted to race that race this year, but I have other obligations. Do you guys race at baja often? If you ever notice a slow B rider on a cr 250 with the #203 at baja it is probably me. I try to go there once a month. I love practice there because it gets so rough!

Not real sure...it started acting up at Thunderbird toward the end of May. It didn't want to shift and when it did it was REALLY hard to get it to shift into 2nd and especially 3rd. So took it apart and the shift fork was messed up and another piece connected to that. Fixed that stuff...Phil rode it around the yard, seemed fine. I rode it a few weeks later at Big Air and it was fine until it got warmed up and back to the not wanting to shift. We drained the tranny fluid again and lots of metal in it. Hmm..so changed it rode again same thing. This time it would only shift is the throttle was basically wide open. I couldn't downshift before a turn or in the air. UGH! We both work a lot of hours and haven't had time to mess with it. Well I have this Sunday off and want to race.

Phil drained the tranny fluid again and still lots of metal flakes. Checked the clutch plates they all seemed fine and so did the parts that were replaced before. Then he noticed a lot of metal shavings piled up somewhere above the clutch plates...not sure what that area is or is called. So he's like umm...it's inside and I am not splitting the cases...so off to Quality Service Plus for Doug Grotler to fix it for me. So as of right now we have no idea what is wrong... :(

So I'm on my brother in laws '05 YZ250F this weekend...I can't start it! I want my 2 stroke!!!

Update on my bike problems

I stopped by the shop today...

So far the main bearing is gone, a few of the gears are ground down on the corners and another one isn't moving like it should. Not sure what caused the problem yet, he hasn't got that far...I hope I explained that right. I only had a few minutes...Phil will get the full detail tomorrow when he stops in.

So I'll be going four stroke this weekend...I never thought this day would come so soon! :bang:
