Recommended Posts

Like the tip of the plug was dry, I don't know much about 4 strokes I'm used to two stroke a little wetness on a two stroke is good. I just don't know if four stroke plugs being dry is bad? Like being lean.

Ok I was just checking. I mean you can't take the plug out hot because then you run the risk of screwing up your head because its aluminum and when the plug is unscrewing it will pull the threads out of the head. Just fyi

No, removing a plug on a hot engine will NOT pull the threads out. Only over torquing will do that. The sort of BS old wives tales are really quite the joke. Who ever told you that is clueless.

A plug will always be dry on a 4S unles it is fuel fouled. A plug should be dry on a 2S too if it is jetted right and ridden as it was designed to be ridden.

      So I have never actually posted on one if these forums. I usually just stalk them to get answers but I messed up and I might be out 800 bucks🙃
      I have a 2013 CRF250L that I recently bought and I wanted to get supermoto wheels for it. I got online and almost ordered a set of warp 9 wheels but then I saw an add on Craigslist. Long story short I purchased lightly used warp9 wheels from a 2012 CRF250X not realizing the axles are different sizes. The rims are the same size as what comes in the kit from warp 9 but the spacers and bearings are larger on the wheels that I got. Does anyone know if I can buy new bearing and spacer kits to go in these hubs to fit them on my bike or will I need to purchase new hubs entirely? 
      I work on a fishing boat and I'm off the coast of Oregon for a few weeks and wanted to order something so I can get these wheels on my bike when I get home.
      Thanks, 
      The guy who f***** up

      I have a new 16 crf250x.  Would like gear it up a bit for two track, orv trails.  How much can i drop the rear sprocket size without shortening the chain.
      Thanks men!

      I was working on installing new needle for JD jet kit today. While trying to get a bit more rotation on the carb i broke a little plastic tee on the top of carb (left side). I think its some sort of vent? Not sure if the brass part is threaded into carb or not? At any rate it will have to be replaced. Wonder where i'd get this little item?
      Any ideas?
      Thanks joe

      Ever been bored or really ticked off by not being able to reach your fuel screw for trailside adjustments?  Well, I decided to do something about it, and not spend a bunch of money to boot!
      Parts liste included:
      Short length of brass tube. Short piece of old, broken speedometer inner cable. Nut from the rejects bin.   I welded the nut to the speedometer cable inner and soldered the other end to the fuel screw using the brass tube as a connector.  I didn't need or fab up a holder for the end, but I wouldn't be too hard. My DIY flexible fuel mixture screw works great and the price is right! I highly recommend this mod.

      Cheap, but effective DIY fuel mixture screw

      Hi everyone. I’m new here so I don’t really know what to do but let me explain what’s up, so I bought this 2008 CRF250X today and everything looked in tip top shape, but within a few minutes of riding the engine and radiator gets to hot to touch and then the bike dies at low RPM, then it is a hassle to get it started(i drained the battery trying) and once it fires it dies super easily again like by touching the trottle or just idling and I have to be super cautious on the throttle to grt it going. I don’t know if it is overheating or if there is another problem, if anyone could help me it would be very much appreciated.
