Did you cut your pink wire or move it over to the empty socket?

i simply relocated it to the spare socket. its alot better idea incase i wish to put it back where it came from

Guys, I don't think the pink wire has much to do with it. Our R's don't have the pink wire, that I know of, and we still have the issue.

Then again, maybe if we had the pink wire, we wouldn't have the issue... hum... :thumbsup:

There is some logic to that: the pink wire mod on the X let's it rev higher. If it's true that more high-RPM use causes the valve problems, then it stands to reason that NOT doing the pink wire mod might help prevent valve problems on an X? :devil:

I had the same thought and posted it in another thread just before I read this one! The pink wire mod allows another 1,200 RPM, so it could be a contributor to valve problems on the 250X. I see you moved the pink wire on your bike, so are you having valve problems?

That's kinda what I was thinking about the time I was in the middle of my post. It would be interesting to see if the rev limiter could be lowered on the R and see that would affect the valve problems at all. I wish I knew how to do it. :thumbsup: Nice thought though. :devil:

My thoughts on the pink wire is no so much as being able to rev to 13000rpm ( the R's do it) but down shifting when on the pipe and mechanicly over reving on eng. I hate to say this but I been guilty on this error a few times :thumbsup:
