    You missed the point. Click on the link to see the 244 lb HONDA: https://powersports.honda.com/2019/crf250rx.aspx#specifications
  2. You have an XRR carb plus exhaust mods, so just use XRR jetting and go up 1 size on the main and pilot, and maybe 1-clip position richer on the needle. http://rickramsey.net/XR250R.htm Scroll down to the jetting panel. You'll have to choose between 95 and older vs 96 and newer depending on what year the carb is. Carb notes here; differences discussed: http://rickramsey.net/XR250Rcarb.htm If in doubt, go rich and work your way down.

    Gunnison Colorado trail riding.

    I decided to try adding trail names to the BrushCementSpring map that I posted previously, so I got the current version of the MVUM and added names. Here is the result. When you download the map (right-click and save), it will be 1190 x 900 at 144 ppi (8.26" x 6.25") and will print nicely on 8 1/2 x 11 and 11 x 17 paper. I selected the paper size, then scale to fit in the printer setup. Of course, you must have the proper size paper in the printer. The map seemed a little busy at first, but I soon got used to it. It's handy to have the names and numbers together. BTW BrushCementSpring is short for Brush Cr Rd, Cement Cr Rd, Spring Cr Rd.

    Which service manual

    It's a copy of the original printed manual, and slightly lower quality. Engine (and other) details are not as clear. I always buy the original publications....

    Rear Linkage 1 more time

    Parts list comparo: I have not held the 150R linkage in hand, but I suspect the rocker is aluminum... Note - because the orientation of the rockers is different, I may have compared the wrong cushion/seals/bearing collections, but the matchup will still be minimal. The bolt lengths are the key indicators.

    Rainbow trail update

    The sand dunes are on the west side of the Sangres, the RBT is on the east and north side of the Sangres. You can do what you want, but you'll have to cross the Sangres at Medano Pass, multiple times. Once to get to your desired start, back over to get to the RBT, and the trucks will have to come back over also. Don't forget about the closed part of the RBT southeast of Hayden Cr Rd. You'll have to leave the RBT, travel over roads to Hayden Cr Rd, then back west to catch the rest of the RBT. It would all work out much better to start the ride at Hayden Cr Rd, but that's just my opinion. This would all be very clear if you were looking at a map - methinks you haven't done that.

    PWK Update

    The (very small) drill bits arrived today, and the bits are not long enough to reach the hole inside the jets to check sizing. So, I found some very fine wire, .30mm diameter, and used it as follows. The wire passes through the holes on the two Keihin 30 pilot jets. Not easily, but it does fit. The wire passes smoothly through the two Keihin 31 pilot jets. The wire passes easily and with some sense of slop through the two Keihin 33 pilot jets. I then used the #80 drill bit (.34mm) to see what it would fit. The bit did not pass through the 30, 31, and 33 pilot jets. I believe that the jets are genuine Keihin and sized correctly. I ride at 8,000 to 13,000 feet elevations, and I will be using these jets as needed. A friend and his Beta at 12,000 feet: Nary a drop nor lightning, just breezy. Rows and floes of angel hair And ice cream castles in the air And feather canyons everywhere I've looked at clouds that way

    Seat gap too big

    #3 is probably not in the correct slot:

    PWK Update

    My numbered drill bits go from 61-80, just a bit larger than the range I would need. I ordered a set of .2 .25 .3 .35 .4 bits and will measure the pilot jets as soon as the bits arrive. Promised by Saturday.
