Stripped down most of the bike, repainted the swingarm, frame is next, then a carb cleaning and put it all back together for spring.

Just finished putting white plastic and graphics on. Grease linkage and waiting for stiffer suspension and the snow to melt.

I put her on a Battery Tender this morning, No time to ride this week.

I keep hearing about these battery tenders....I have a '06 450 and have done nothing as far as charging the battery. I ride every 3-4 weeks. Should I get me one of these things??:banghead:

Rode Saturday in the mud, slop, and slick hillclimbs without a single spill. Knew it was to good to be true and it was. On the way home a strap broke on my buddies one month old bike and it knocked my three month old bike loose and they both fell off the trailor going down the rode. luckily we were not going to fast and the damage was held to a minimum but have still ben sick about it all evening.

Too cold to ride in Utah right now, so I stripped the seat cover, colored the blue sides black, added an inch of soft foam I picked up from the upholstery place for $5, formed and shaped it with a hacksaw blade and then stapled the cover back on. Also added the yellow backgrounds/numbers I got thru Attack Graphics at Rocky Mountain ATV. I'm ready to go for a ride!

What method did you use to color the seat sides?

I used a Marks-a-lot Marker from Walmart ($1.99). I hit it twice to keep the blue from showing through. We'll see how long it holds it's color. I had bought a gripper seat from Factory Effex but wasn't impressed with the material or the stitching.

      CANT FIND A STRAIGHT ANSWER ON FORUMS , NEED HELP NOT SMART ASS COMMENTS 
      Background - cool weather has me motivated on doing a ground up restoration on my 97 yz250 , last year I fully restored my first bike that got me into the sport a "1993 yz125 " . Just like my my build last year It seams Im stuck with the bastard children of Yamaha , parts are hard to find and seems to be little or no aftermarket parts.  I have already spent well over $1,000  on this yz250 in plastics , custom graphics , asv levers , custom gas tank ,  exhaust and other crap so the most cost effective way would be best lol.  I'm wanting to change the look of the bike with black wheels , rims are 160-220 each depending on brand . spokes are 60+ each set and labor is about $200 locally to lace and true . I have searched high and low on forums and google haven't found a single aftermarket set that fits a 1997 everything is 99+ 
      Question -  I have found a newer set of wheels  https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/1071/42645/Tusk-Impact-Complete-Front-Rear-Wheel-Kit what do I need to make these work on a 1997 ? I know my hubs are 20mm and 99+ have 22mm.  if you could help with part numbers or links on what I need. 
       
       
       
      Here is what I'm going for ( top pic ) the one below are my progress , frame goes to power coating tomorrow

      So i just rebuild my top end of my 2005 250F, i had 35 houres on my piston and cylinder so i decided to rebuild it.
      it ran perfectly before the rebuild, my timing is right, i have spark, en my sparkplug is a little wet so i have fuel... If i try to kick it it starts to run but after 2seconds it stops running. does anyone know what i have to do?
      thx Medard from belgium

      Hey Guys, 
      So I am 270# and 6'. I used to ride and want to get back into it. I definitely have a good amount of experience to handle both a 250 and 450 but not sure if a 250 will be able to handle me.
      Right now the bikes I am between are:
      2012 YZ450F @ 50 hours for $4000 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1302150376&requestSource=b 2012 KX450F @ 35 hours for $3800 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1300722287&requestSource=b 2010 CRF450R @ 45 hours for $3200 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1296942462&requestSource=b All these bikes are in really good condition from what I can see from the pictures and none of them raced or track ridden. My plan is to build a 5 acre track in my backyard and build some sort of track along with mainly using it for trail riding.
      I guess what I am asking is for some suggestions and opinions that could help me decide.

      Very nice Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 Clutch that has been ran for about 40 - 50 hours.  The Core EXP 3.0 gives you the best of both worlds as it is fully automatic and allows you to operate it just like you would a manual clutch.  Was getting ready to install in a 2017 YZ250F so I wanted to freshen it up and bought a brand new EXP 3.0 Disc which has never been oiled up or installed.  Before getting time to install the clutch, I decided to sell the bike.  It fits a 2014 - 2018 Yamaha YZ250F. 
      ONLY $575 shipped anywhere in the lower U.S.
      Please call or text me at 801-362-8899.
      Thanks!
