After a complete rebuild of my RM 250 (2002), I recently had a needle clip from the carb go thru the top end. I just had it repaired last year!!! DAMN! Anyhow, the needle clip was new too, part of a Moose Racing rebuild kit. Kind of a fluke deal, really. Nothing got past the rings, but it did a little salsa dancing with the cylinder head and piston top. I have a new piston, and will replace/ repair the head, butwould like to know nwhat you guys think of these pix: You can see where the little sucker got slid up the cylinder wall, but you cannot physically feel the damage with your fingers. Run it on the bike? Or run it to Milennium???????? It has already been repaired once. Is that an issue?? Thanx to all.
