How to mount a CRF250R UFO brand number plate on a CRF250X


Hit_the_set

How to:

CRF250R front number plate on your 250X

This is a UFO brand front number plate. I’m guessing that this plate is a little different than the other plates out there.

The 1st step that I took is to cut off the large center tab. I used my dremel drill and took my time to make sure the finished product looked nice. Here are my pictures

2nd step that I took was to apply heavy duty Velcro to the sides of the new number plate.

The 3rd step was to drill holes in to the two tabs on the top of the number plate I used a 1/8” drill bit and made the hole oblong.

The 4th step was I took my light hook up and wrapped it up with plumbers tape to protect it and then used duct tape to secure it, and I placed heavy duty Velcro on the sides of the lower triple clamp.

The 5th step was to place the number plate on the bike. Make sure you fish the long tab on the top under the break line 1st. Then place it on the Velcro.

Next I attached the top holes that I made in the number plate to the holes for the bolts for the head light number plate with zip ties. Don’t tighten them up at this point just get them started.

Next step I slowly started tightening the zip ties from one side to the other. Take is slow and step back from time to time to make sure the plate is level and square. Then after you’ve got it tight cut off the tails.

Then she’s done.

      So I thought I should create a new thread to dump my vlogs into for the few that do watch them.  If you didn't catch my vlogs from last year for 2017, check them out here -> 2017 NMA Series
      Season 2 is well underway for 2018.  This year I'll be racing the Open A class competing in both the NORCS and NMA off-road series as well as the Desert 100 and maybe some other races throughout the year.  If you got any questions or recommendations, lets hear them.  Enjoy!

      Hi folks,
      I'm new to TT.  Seeking some help with an old pit bike (shown in pics).  I didn't do the mods on this but saw some value and bought it cheap.  It hasn't ran since shortly after I got it a couple years ago.  When it did run it was blowing blue smoke I assume burning oil.. probably why it was bought so cheap.  It has a 124cc Takegawa kit and I'm not sure the brand of clutch kit installed so I'm hoping you guys notice.  It doesn't have any oil right now and I'm wondering if dumping oil in the clutch cover treats the whole engine and clutch or if they're separated inside.  I think some oil and fresh gas would get it running again but like I said it didn't seem very healthy when it did run.  Does the blue smoke I used suggest the top end needs replaced?  Are these parts still accessible if so?  Lastly, the sprockets don't align well and the rear brake hardly works.  It may just need fluid but are there any good swingarm/rear brake kits out there for decent price?  I'd about prefer to remove the swingarm/wheel/brake and start new there.
      Carb is a Mikuni, PC exhaust, if wondering.  I'm not sure what the forks are from but they and the front brake work.
      Thanks for any help.  Would love to get it built right and repost!

      Hey everyone,
      I have a slightly modded CRF230F with a Pro Circuit T4 exhaust, uncorked airbox with 45p, 03-05 needle @4th clip, and a 120main, a ProCom CDI box, and a Twin Air filter. I am looking to bore out the stock 26mm carburetor to 28mm so I can get more top end while keeping most of the low end I have. Would this be a good idea?

      I recently did a valve check on my CRF250X. All the valves were in spec except for one exhaust valve, which was WAY out of spec. I think there is supposed to be a .010-.012 gap to be in spec, but mine is at .018, which is much too loose. I think there might be some carbon build up on the valve, so I was trying to research some decarbonizing methods. Right now I'm trying to decide whether:
      A. use some sea foam and add that to the tank
      B. take off the air box and use a spray bottle of water with the bike at high RPM's
      or C. take off the head and check/clean carbon manually.
      Last riding season I checked the valves and all were in spec. I then installed the JD jet kit (much richer jetting), which is why I think this is probably a carbon build up issue.
      Any advice/suggestions?
