  1. Put on the galfer steel braided line and new DP pads. Brakes are incredible now. Not sure which part contributed more to the significant improvement, but don't really care haha. Thanks for the suggestions!
  2. Thanks for the replies guys. I will order some fresh pads and a steel braided line tomorrow. Definitely no air in the line, I reverse bled it. The brake lever has feel, it just doesn't stop the bike very well at all.
  3. Yea? Does your 230 front brakes work decent? I haven't tried pads yet, didn't want to keep buying parts if it was a loosing battle. I did try another set of used pads, I bought a whole spare caliper brake line and mastercylinder circuit and tried throwing that on to see if it made a difference, it did not. I can try deglazing the pads.. So do most peoples front brakes work well on this bike?
  4. Hi, my wife has a 04 Crf230f and the front brakes are horrible. Have tried reverse bleeding the lines, sanding the rotor, lubed the pins on the caliper, rebuilt the master cylinder. It still sucks. Anyone else? Could I just put a crf250 setup on here? Would jsut need a mounting bracket I assume? Any help is appreciated, thanks!
  5. Update this is solved now I do have just as much play as I did with my Yamahas. I think the clutch was definitely worn so I replaced the plates which helped but I had to put the stock lever back on to get enough throw to get the play where I like it. The aftermarket lever didn't have enough adjustment to make the pull long enough
  6. Actually I may be wrong about that, is that spring inside of that gasket on the slave manifold? It's what pushed it back out right? That's in there then... Hmm.. Not sure what else to check
  7. I'm. I'm missing #86 on the bottom right. That goes in-between the slave and the case right? I don't have that spring
  8. I still don't feel convinced that this thing is fully disengaging. With the bike on and the lever pulled all the way to the grip it will stay put l, but I can tell that it wants to Lurch forward and as soon as it even comes a millimeter off the grip it starts going. I also put the bike on the stand and turned it on and put it in gear. With it on the stand running in gear and the clutch fully pulled in the wheel still spins almost at the same speed as when the clutch is let out. For comparison I did this with my girlfriends CRF230 and hers when I put it on the stand put it in gear and pull the clutch in the wheel comes to a dead stop and then it barely tries to creep forward. Where as mine with the clutch in is still spinning quite quickly. Anything else I can check to make sure this thing is fully disengaging?
  9. I wouldn't think one could overfill it, as the excess would just squish out as the cap goes on.
  10. Ok that sounds normal then?
  11. Hi TT, I recently picked up a a used '15 350sxf. Prior to use I've been on various yz250f' for years. So an issue I'm have is that the clutch grabs right off the bar, there is almost no "play" at the lever. I tried reverse bleeding the clutch and also unscrewed the master cylinder and pumped it by hand to get the air bubbles out. I also installed new friction and steel plates. The feel at the lever seems good, it has the ARC levers on it, so I tried making the lever a little longer/further away from the bar. That seem to help a little, but it seems crazy that I can't a similar amount of play as my Yamahas. Is that just how the hydraulic clutches are? Or am I doing something wrong? Thanks!
  12. Hey TT, So I'm trying to repack the stock muffler on my 14 yz250f (thankful that they finally went to Allen screws instead of rivets) but I'm having a hell of a time getting this pillow in because of the massive indent that's in the side of the stock muffler (for rear wheel clearance I'm assuming) Anyone have success with this? I feel like I'd have to remove half of the pillow packing to get this thing back in!
  13. yes its 98 ft lbs. or you can do 60 and have it come off lol
  14. I just ordered an 05 airboot from ebay, much cheaper then the aftermarket one, thanks for the advice!
  15. Yea I have the stocker on my 2010 now, so I could pull it and compare them, the shape looks very similar but it looks like maybe the midpipe is shorter on the fmf. This is just from looking at it without removing the stocker. I should remove it and inspect it closer
