Im in the process of tearing it down and greasing all the bearings, and im going to add some inline filters to the carb vent hoses tomorow. Its running good, and i really like it, Ill be going to my first practice with it on saturday. Today after i wached it i noticed something...The clear pinkish hose thats plugged at the end (it connects to the valve cover vent hose) had about 2 1/2 inches of water in it, There are no leakes in the line, so the water must have got in through the air filter then into that tube, I dont think it would come from inside the motor...Has this happend to anyone else before? I didnt see any visible water in the air boot, and the filter had a little water on it but it wasnt soaked...Off course i drained the water out, and tomorow im gonna try to find a one way valve to put ont the end of it (to let stuff out but nothing in)<does that sound like a good idea?

Im also gonna add a inline filter right before where the valve cover breather hose goes in the valve cover, Just incase any dirt made it in the breather line. Another question, what octane gas should i use in it? 93? Thanks allot guys, this is a great forum.

:cry:

The fluid is normal. Just drain it. Its water from condensation with gas and dirt I think. 93 octane is what most people run.

Good luck. :cry:

Would a one way valve be a good idea? So the water would drain on its wown but nothing would go in...If you tipped the bike over and that water was in the line It might go back into the valve :cry: hmmmm

Tyler, its Thumper273 off pit. Hopefully I will be bringing home a crf 250 tomorrow morning, I cant wait! Im coming from a yam 250f and I was wondering if any of you guys could explain changing the oil on a honda 250f apposed to the Yam 250f. Also, is it necessary to change the oil after breaking it in? Also, what are the necessary maitenence things to do to a brand new bike? Also, when changing the oil after the first ride or break in do you have to change the oil filter as well? Im new to the crf's and need some suggestions.

Thanks,

Justin.

Yes, change the oil after break-in. Before you ride it pull the linkage, swingarm and steering apart and grease everything. Also check the spokes before you even start it, I guarantee they're already loose.
