07 backfire screen

Have you guys been removing your backfire screens from the airbox??

Does it make any difference? I was thinking of doing this, but dont want to burn my bike up :thumbsup: to get 1/10 of a hp?

Also while your reading this i am considering a new fmf muffler, mxa says the fmf speed muffler is a great way to smotth out some bottom end and add a little to the top, and its only $299!! is this the best way to get a little more out of the motor w/o sacrificing reliability?

get hot cams stage one...will do more or at least as much as an exhuast system...and with the backfire screen...if you remove it you wont feel a thing ...honestly just leave it in cause if fabric oil happens to make its way down the boot your filter can catch on fire if the bike backfires

yeah i was a little skeptical about removing it, i really dont want any internal mods done to my bike. it seems like something always goes wrong when you start swapping out cams and pistons and that stuff. if i can get by with a $300 exhaust and gain some power w/o tearing apart the motor im all for it

yehhh or you could burn a forest down or catch a feild on fire without the sparkscreen. but your choise

      Alright so I just rebuilt my 2012 kx250f complete rebuild. I put the motor back in the bike get everything hooked up and ready to go it takes a few kicks at first (obviously) but after it starts it sat and idled just fine for a while then it stalled out. Tried to start it again wouldn't start I took the spark plug out of it it looked good I was dark and wet. I cleaned it then put the spark plug back in it it took a few kicks but started right back up again then after a while it stalled out again and now I can't get it to start again!? Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you guys and girls for reading and hopefully for the help!!!

      As close to new as I'd imagine you'd get! I bought the bike brand new, I'm older and have taken extremely good care of this bike. Very little use and is COMPLETELY stock - everything is original. 
      Comes with the title, original book and map couplers for the fuel injection.
      $4700 - cash

      Time for a top end on my bike, just wondering if there are any alternative Valve springs i can use. I have PC cams and $400 for just the springs and retainers is alil costly at the moment.
      This has been fun in other sections of TT, so I'll start the thread here and see if we can keep it going.
      Let us know what kind of mods, fixes, changes, etc.., you performed today, or just general fun you had with, your KX250F.
      I'll start with.. I installed a correct for my weight Race Tech shock spring, along with a Pivot Works shock spring thrust bearing. Also cleaned out all the nasty yellow plastic/wax crap that passes for grease in the lower shock bearing, and re-lubed it with Bel Ray waterproof.
