07 overhauling - help needed

Spent quite some time reading very usefull posts here but need your help as could not get straight answers to my doubts.

Its time for a full overhauling on my 07 X, valves are gone. Otherwise things are fine but will replace cam chain, rod and piston just in case.

- Would like to purchase all parts from a single supplier. Any directions?

- Which brand/type of valves should i be looking for? SS? Ti?

- What about piston / rod? Prox?

Many thanks in advance for your assistance as would like to put my beauty back together very soon.

thumpertalk store is good. motosport.com, bike bandit.com rockymountainmc.com, and there are a bunch more, just have to shop for prices. for piston, do you want stock compression, or higher compression? because top end kits for our bikes. just pic a comression and a brand. for piston brands i would recomend JE and/or wiseco.

oh boy, valves! well i perfer to use SS after the stock valves wear out because they last longer, but SS valves are harder on the valve seats. so its your call on SS or Ti. but i would go with SS. and for brands, i would go with ron hamp valves or knibblewhite valves. and since your doing an "overhaul", i would say go with new springs, retainer clips, guides, ect. so i would say a new valve train. im not too sure on what cam/timing chain you would want to go with.

hope this helps, and good look on the over haul.

thanks for the tips, im new to the red world but consider myself a Husq expert. Will place pisturesof the situation so far, looks bad. Cylinder and piston seems ok as ring gap is fine but will replace anyway. Is higher compression piston recommended? We have very poor gas quality here in Brasil and even mixed with ethanol at 20%. Bike was terrible to start.

High comp pistons run fine on 91 octane pump gas, not sure I would up the compression if the only gas you can get is of poor quality.

to a degree. if i went any higher then 13.5:1, i would run octane booster or race gas for the 14.0:1 pistons. but for the fuel quality in brazil, im not to sure what you would want to do.

Go to Falicon. My wife's '07 motor siezed and we put a new piston(not a big bore), hot stage cam, cam chain and falicon rod and it absolutely rips!

go all stock honda, it is as good of better especally for relability, and if the gas is not good.

Already bought all parts and im waiting them to arrive. Bigger problem is that you cant find all the parts you are looking for from a single supplier so ended up not buying exactly all the stuff i would like to. Many thanks for the support and will keep you posted on the results.

What supplier are you using, you can order every nut, bolt and part from the TT oem store, as well as aftermarket stuff too.

      Hey I have a crf250x 2005 I was riding today in top gear flat out and when I slowed down blue smoke just poured out the exsaughst then I happened to open the air box lid and saw it has what looked like engine oil in it then took out air filter and noticed that there was splatters of engine oil on the inside and that and the channel that goes to the carby had engine oil all over it.
      Also bike got a top end rebuild 15 hours ago
      The engine still runs good and sounds normal
      why would this be happening on a resonabley fresh engine

      Hey everybody. Quick question for y'all. I recently went riding and about halfway through my ride my motor seized on my '07 CRF250X. I haven't investigated it much but I checked the oil when I got home and there basically was none so I'm assuming that was the culprit. There weren't any metal shavings in the filter or on the plug either. At this point I'm trying to decide to rebuild the motor or just sell the bike as is and let the next buyer deal with it (they would know the deal obviously.) I feel that I'm pretty mechanically inclined but rebuilding a CRF engine is a bit out of my league and I assume paying a shop to do it would put me out more money than the bike is worth. So, I have this question to ask; what would be a fair price for a pretty dang nice shape 07 CRF250X, with a seized motor with an unknown extent of internal damage?

      I have two rides in on my new Rekluse auto clutch and I have to say I'm very pleased. The install wasn't hard, but was pretty much a all afternoon sort of project. I also installed a left hand rear brake kit and a two finger cluth over-ride with the adjuster on the perch (which I rarely seem to need). It has all worked great right from the beginning. After struggling to get up a tricky hill in first gear, I tried it in second and the autoclutch helped me clean the hill easily. Not having to worry about clutch action in techinical sessions has also eased fatigue and just made it more fun all the way around. I ride mountain bikes alot, and having both brakes up on the bars has also been nice as it makes for a set-up just like the bicycle - in fact I like that as much as not having to worry about clutch manipulation. The brake on the bar is especially nice on tricky downhill sections where you need to paddle, such as nasty rock/rut stuff. So first impressions are that it was worth the investment -making the ride more enjoyable and easier at the same time!

      I was driving the bike for 15min or so and all of the sudden the bike stalled. I tried starting it again with no luck. I took the spark plug out to see if there is spark so i ground the spark plug to the frame and there is no spark. I even put a new spark plug in the bike and still nothing. Any ideas what i should check??
