Rode Capitol Forest for the first time...or should I say got lost in the Capitol Forest. I had 3 different maps and the trails I was on were impossible to make out on the maps. Had a good 3 hour ride anyway.20120907_090747.jpg

Went for a ride. Mates XR had some starting troubles after a water crossing.

I ended up with a flat rear tyre. was due for new rubber anyway.

After the above gave it a good wash. Have to make sure all the salt water is rinsed off!

Was cleaning the air filter (turps, soapy water, clean water) and a heap of the glue seams came apart. Might be able to glue it back together as a spare, but will pick up a couple of new ones. Annoyed that correct cleaning procedure killed a filter though!

Straightened this out

%255BUNSET%255D.jpg

Dunlop D739 on left, Maxxis Desert IT on right. Running them both on different wheels.

%255BUNSET%255D.jpg

%255BUNSET%255D.jpg

Dunlop 908RR. This is the only front tire I will ever buy again

%255BUNSET%255D.jpg

New filter skins.. old one was CAKED. I run the stock filter with a filter skin on always. Keep a bag of freshly oiled skins in the truck

Super-tummy tuck

%255BUNSET%255D.jpg

super tuck - took a grinder to all the ribs.. then zip tied the upper half directly to the radiator guard. it is SOOO much narrower now. I was always catching branches and crap with the dang guards sticking out before. plus it looks 100x better.

I found that if you run your tire flat with Tubliss you should really make sure to use lots of slime. I ran the tire totally dry and flat for 40mi.. it was scorching hot at the end of the day. I have run a trials tire flat for 50mi, but with slime in the tire.. it did no damage... this was from running dry..

Took the carb out to try to figure why it cuts out at 1/8th throttle......

Finally stripped out the clamp to the airbox side and and had to whip out the Dremel to remove it.

What a fun thread, I'm happy to have a WR now to play along! No pics just yet, but I bought a plated '00 WR400 and have been swapping with parts from my '01 YZ426. So far, I have swapped the forks, shock, seat, and tank. This evening I prepped both sets of wheels for new tires that should be here Wednesday. Buncha parts should show Wed/Thurs and I'll have my work cut out for me, probably through the weekend. All in good fun! Need to sort out a speedometer for the plated bike, preferably something cableless/wireless...

      2016 Yamaha YZ250F vet owned and is extremely clean. Perfect condition one owner bike. I challenge you to find a cleaner used bike than this one. Motor is all stock and approximately 40 hours on the bike. This bike is the best bike I've had in a long time and wouldn't be selling if I wasn't going back to kart racing.

      I have a 2004 Yamaha WR250F that the previous owner modified and the bike doesn’t run the way it should. It has an FMF muffler with an aftermarket pipe coming from the engine. There’s no other silencers or restrictions in the exhaust.
      When I got the bike, it was backfiring every time I let off the throttle no matter what speed I was doing. When the previous owner first started the bike, part of the exhaust pipe was cherry red while he was warming it up by giving it more throttle.
      I took the carburetor apart and found out that I have a 178 main jet, 40 pilot jet, and 72 leak jet. The needle clip was in the middle in the 4th position. I adjusted the fuel screw back to the 1.5 turns out position from the 3.5 turns out position the previous owner had it set at. I changed out the pilot jet to a 45 and the bike no longer backfires while I ride it but it does die when I leave it to idle. Sometimes it dies immediately after letting off the throttle and other times it will idle for a minute or two before dying.
      Now before this gets too confusing, I ran the bike with the fuel screw at 1.5 turns out and 3.5 turns out after changing the pilot jet. At 1.5 turns out, the bike would only run when choked and would die when idling. At 3.5 turns out, the bike will run with the choke off but will still die when idling.
      If anyone has any suggestions to try, please let me know.

      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
