How many guys over 100 hours on a 2005

Recommended Posts

Any TT'ers logged over 100 hours on a 2005?

Still on original Piston and Valves/springs? Seems like the 2005 bikes are holding up better then the 2004's (so far).

I have heard of a few that have over 70 hours all stock/original.... :cry:

( I currently have 38 hours)

I'm thinking I have about 100. I've had the bike since late august, I ride 4-5 times a week, I may have alot more than 100. Valves are still to spec, starts 1st or 2nd kick when cold. :cry:

20-30 Hours on ENGINE. Yes, That means I could have been out on the bike for 40-50 hours, but I have only had the engine running 20-30 hours! No problems here :cry:

where can i get an hour meter for my 05 crf250r?

NOTE: See EDIT below!

You can find a nice STS-5000 Sendec on Ebay. That's where I bought my model 806-100-1032 Sendec. I'd have bought the STS-5000 if it was available when I bought.

EDIT: I was wrong. The preferred hour meter is the FS-500 Sendec. Thanks dennit1

Skipn8r,

Is the SenDEC STS-5000 only a tach? I have the SenDEC FS-500 and it clearly states on their web site the 500 is tach/hour meter.

Sometimes when I'm out trail riding and what not, I take a break, when I'm at the track for practice, I sit in the pits. Doesn't always mean I'm riding it. Probably my fault for saying that in the first place.

My bad. I really thought I read that the STS-5000 was also an hour meter, but I just checked and it does appear to be only a tach. Good catch. I guess my meds haven't fully worn off :cry: .

BTW, did you get to make that top speed run yet?

With a trail-tech, I got my 05 stock to hit 65 into the wind half throttle. 5th gear. It was a crappy day so I didn't top it out.

No speed test, we got about 18 inches of snow about a week after I put the tach/hour meter on. I really would like to get out and ride but I guess you really don't need to hear me. Hope the recovery goes quickly :cry: . I may trade in my knee guards for the braces after reading your surgery post. Where did you mount your hourmeter? Did you ever post a picture.

Mounted mine behind the front number plate on top of the CDI. It has to be monted vertically, but its the slickest way I've seen it done. Not in open view, but one screw and your looking at it.

1) Surgery sucks, but my knee feels great. Soft tissue is still tender, but I think I'll be pretty normal in about a week :cry: . Doc is still insisting on 6 months off the bike :cry: .

2) If you can work some Asterisks into the budget, I suggest you do. Then spend a lot of time adjusting for proper fit. If you have questions, PM me. Refer to number 1. BTW, Cycle Gear has a 10% off sale next week. If you have one nearby, it could save you $50 on some braces.

3) I mounted my Sendec to the right side frame with two tie wraps, near the shroud. Easy to spot check. Post some pix of your install as I think I'll probably upgrade to one like yours soon.

Here's how I mounted mine.

Be sure to attach the wire like this or it won't work.

      I’m wanting to powder coat my bike but it’s all new to me. I’ve got a powder coater picked out that I’ve heard is good for what I’m doing. I’m not 100% what kind of sand blaster I need and what kind of media. I have also heard you can’t cook in the oven after you’ve baked your parts is that true?

      Hi all, 
      I have a 2004 honda crf250r and it wont start hot at all. The motor was just rebuilt with a new cylinder and piston. The valves were just adjusted. It will start cold in 1 or 2 kicks with choke but as soon as it gets hot it wont start. If you bump start it the motor will just turn over without starting.  sometimes it will start. It runs great until you shut it off.  im thinking its either a fuel issue or an electrical issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Okay so the title is a little vague. 
      So it was having trouble idling and even starting when I first bought it about a month ago for $2k. 
      So I did a rough clean of carb, looked up on YouTube, Forums, Etc on how to do it. I only cleaned jets with carb cleaner and sprayed around the float bowl area and such, so not too extensive.
      Did that and I took it out to a park, It would start up right away mostly, few kicks sometimes, but when I got it started, I had to keep the choke on. Right when I was ready to go fast and go up to 3rd and 4th gear I'd switch it off and it would work fine and sound fine and everything, but when I slowed back down and coasted around 1st gear i'd pop it back out again because it sounded like it was going to do. I have some videos if people would like me to link to them.
       
      So after that I decided to take it apart and replace spark plug with OEM NGK R0409B-8, replace main jet from a old 170 to a new 170, replaced pilot jet from a old 40 to a new 42, and kept starter jet the same just made sure that wasn't clogged, ordered a new adjustable fuel screw and used that.
      and it was still having a little bit of problems! I just started up today and the day before today. It would run only with choke on, if i twisted throttle in neutral it sounded pretty good, no gun shot noises or anything, pretty smooth. 
      If I tried to take choke off it would die immediately. So I started it back up again, took around 6 kicks.. So again with choke on it sounded like it was starting to lose power and RPM's would drop so I'd twist throttle a few times and it would stay idling.. then after a small amount of time, start to sound like its about to die again... so I would rev it up again, and repeat..
       
      Fuel line isn't clogged, flows fine.
      I tried fuel screw everywhere between 1 and 2 turns out..
      I checked valve clearances, and I'm no expert but from the videos I watched the slipped underneath intake and exhaust with only minor force.
      So I'm lost.. 
      Maybe float bowl is messed up? Should I just do a COMPLETE carb rebuild from videos I've seen on youtube, like this one -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AXb9UprT30? Or what? 
       
      It's getting annoying taking it apart all the time, I jsut want it to start up quickly and run well!!
       
      Thank you!
       
      Austin, TX, Elevation 600ft, where I ride its around 900ft
