02 cr question

Recommended Posts

Ok guys maybe someoe could help me out here. I have an 02 cr250 just completely rebuilt bottom up with a FMF fatty and shorty exhaust. I was out riding today and went down in a bowl corner broke my clutch lever so my day was done. When i got up i notice that when turning right it was tougher to get turned. When i got back to my pit i noticed my front fender was hitting the exhaust !?! Now im not 100% positive but i didnt think it hit before. it was just a tip over and nothing else is damaged. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem or is there a possiblity theres something more going on there... I know my forks need to be gone through and rebuilt but..what do you guys think ?

I'm guessing here but...if you crashed on the left side of the bike(clutch lever) then maybe you bent the pipe up a bit and now your fender hits the pipe when you turn right--which would cause the rear of the fender to be on the left side of the bike.

Either fender or pipe is tweaked--my guess is the pipe. Unless something crazy happened like triple clamps broke or something but highly doubt that.

I'll bet there is a dent or something in pipe on the bottom where it landed and pushed it up or out a bit. IMO

Sounds like you bent your pipe. Check it out and make sure that it can't be re-mounted before you buy another one though. I've seen them just kinda twisted out of position before, but usually when they hit the fender they were bent.
