    Issues Pressing out steering stem- Should I keep going?

    The stem should press on out. Have you tried to take a Butane Torch and Apply Heat around d at the bottom of stem? If not....add a little Heat to see if it will press on out.

    Elbow felt like it exploded Dr Mark!

    It's coming along. Every day seems a little better. Have a slight twitch when I flex my Tricep at my elbow. Hope that goes away in time. Believe I need to start doing some light resistance workouts to start building my Muscle back up though. Still not suppose to lift anything heavier than a coke bottle with it until Oct 4th. Been riding bycycle some for cardio. You might have torn a Flexor Tendon maybe. See how it feels in about 3weeks.

    When you felt the explosion.....Did you hear a "pop" and did it feel like a Tennis Ball trying to come out the back of your arm? This is what mine felt like when I ruptured my Triceps Tendon. I could feel the Tricep muscle retract up my arm. My right Bicep Distal Tendon Rupture felt like you pulled a curtain shade down and then let it go. The Bicep muscle curled up my arm.

    2017 CRF250L RaceTech fork upgrade question

    Honda Forks I'm not to familiar with. But on Yamahas....when you fill the inner Cartridge with fluid, you pour the fluid in until it just about reaches the bleed holes on the Cartridge, bout a couple mm's Then you Bleed the Cartridge by working the rebound rod up and down. Once all the air is out then you insert the Base valve assembly then do a final purge to bleed off any excess fluid.

    Inner chamber (inner cartridge) Outer chamber (outer Tube) is what you drained. Me personally I would have loosened the Top Fork cap in the clamps then removed the Fork from the clamps. The continued to loosen the cap all the way. At this time I would have drained the outer tube while holding the cap so that the spring would not come out. But I would have drained or changed the inner Cartridge oil as well.

    Trade YZ250 for CRF250L

    Now he says he will $1300.00 Boot..... I would like to have a Duel Sport to ride back in the Mountains and Back Roads. I would still have a Dirt Bike ....My 2016 YZ450 60th Anniversary edition. I just wonder if this CRF250L would sell better than my 2-stroke if I decided to sell it later on?

    Good job!.... Now you have learned a lot about the Forks and can transfer that to other year KYB models.

    I used a 2mm drill bit on that rebound rod valving stem to drill out the hole bigger on my 2016 YZ450 so that more fluid would flow through it. Per Dave Johnson at Smart Performance inc. With his kit.

    Also to remove the Flat where you had a wrench to hold the rod while you took the mid valve off. You will have to heat it a tad due to loctite. It will unscrew on out. Use loctite putting it back on

    2001 YZ125 Rebound Rod Removal (Fork Lowering)

    There is a small nut on top of the piston you unscrew to get the piston and valving off. Use a a 12mm wrench on the flats to hold the rod while you take a 8mm or 10mm on the nut to unscrew it. Dont just unscrew the nut right off but kinda work it back an forth to ease it off so that it doesnt strip the aluminum threaded shaft.

    Be sure to inspect everything good and be careful removing the shims.....some are small and thin an can get out of place. I believe they have an ID of 8mm
