    Please Help!

    That really doesnt help me. Im not going to buy a new bike. I have this bike. Its mine. But thank you. As for the case...it leaks oil where the breather tube connects to the case. As for pricing the parts...I dont really know what parts i need.

    I posted this in the Honda two-stroke forums, but they dont get to much traffic. So I am posting here also. These are the things wrong with my 1993 CR250. They are listed in order from most important to least 1.Piston Slap:Bike was bored to 263-5 and it has a case of piston slap. 2.Leaky right forkseal:i tried to pick dirt out of it today after i discovered it. But it didnt work. still leaks. 3.Leaky crankcase:Leaks oil from the breather tube it think. Not out of the tube but from where the tube meets the case. 4.Leaky exhaust:black splooge all over everything. It leaks around where the pipe meets the motor, and of course where the pipe meets the silencer. 5.Warped rear brake:Just annoying. The last two of these are not terribly important. Is there any way someone could give me a rough estimate of how much parts would cost along with how many hours this would take? If so it would help my life a lot. A whole lot. This bike has been killing me lately. Everything keeps screwing up on it. I love riding it but im constantly discovering new things wrong.Any estimate would be helpful. Or words of advice.

    ^wow sounds like a tough ride. my bike has never fouled a plug on me before so im assuming its because my filter was probably wet/really dirty from the rain.

    A day of neverending mishaps.

    I went to Land Between The Lakes in Kentucky today for some good wholesome easy trail riding. When we got there i immediately realize that noone is there. There was 5 people there the whole day. We show up, unload, and i take off down the trails. I ride for a couple hours. Sipping on some powerade in my camelback. Everythings going fine. I'm coming down the trail, and all the sudden;rain. No fun. I head back to the truck. It rains for 45 minutes. I finally get fed up and throw my helmet on to go to the lake and see if there is a break in the rain. on my way to the lake i decide its a good idea to top my bike out in 5 gear in the rain. That was the most fun thing i have ever done. It was a blast. I hit the powerband in 5th gear, and rocketed. Well there was no break in the rain for another 10 minutes. So my mom decides to let me take the truck off roading as driving practice. So we go four wheelin' and head back to "camp". It stops raining. I immediately head out. I head down the main road to see how many people are there. Turns out its me and 2 other trucks(thank goodness). I ride for a couple hours. Its all chicken. Then i decide ill go down this one trail that i know from prior experience is just 1 big water hole. Bad idea. I am sputtiering along. Loading up my cylinder. I get out of that trail, finally, and my bike bogs out really bad. I try to clean it out. But nothing. It sputters and dies. Uh oh. I knew it was my spark plug. And i knew i was screwed. So i manage to find a little spot of service and use my phone to call my mammy. Right after that the last group of people there rides up to my doorstep! I stop them. Its a kid on a kx 85, a girl on a z 400, a older guy(my main man) on a kdx 200, and a girl on a klx 110. The guy on the kdx is like "yeah ill help you get it started" No luck. He's like "its the plug ive got a few at the truck, lemme go get a wrench and plugs and tell your mom". "thanks" so they head off. Get lost. Come back. Head off again. Come back with the plugs and a wrench that wont work. Off they head again. The guy shows back up with a wrench that works, and a few plugs. We put a used plug off his kdx on and it gets ruined. We are desperate at this point. Like Uh ohz again. Im just sitting there. Thinking im gonna have to walk it the two miles out. While thunder, lightning and a storm is approaching. So i go "anymore plugs?". "yeah one off his kx 85 thats brand new". Ok lets try it. So we put it on. This time i go "if i get it started im throwin it in first and hauling back to the truck" "ok" I kick it. First kick it starts and i throw roost. I hauled back to the truck. The bike actually didnt run bad with the kx plug. So thats my story. Lesson learned:carry plugs and wrenches. Thatll learn me. Thanks kawasaki family! and the girl on the klx 110 for letting me put around on it. And thanks to the big puddle i skipped rocks across waiting for help. tl;dr:fouled plug. narrowly made it. just read.
