    does this make anyone else sick???

    I was thinking the same thing. yeah, we get it, you can ride a wheelie with one arm. So you have nothing better to do than flail your left arm around like you have down syndrome?...Do something productive and beat off with your lefty.

    07 RMZ 250 Worn gears. PICS!

    I completely understand your point. Honestly, I want to replace them so that I can sleep better at night knowing that I didnt return him a time bomb. I think I'll explain to him the risks and let him make the decision. After all, it is his money. The two gears I showed in the pics are the worst. Some of the other driven gears show similar wear, but nowhere near as bad. I agree that the MINIMAL replacement should be those 2 gears if he is on a tight budget. Aside from the weird dent, the shift drum looks fine. I dont see any grooves and only minimal wear.

    07 RMZ 250 Worn gears. PICS!

    Thanks for the input guys. I really do appreciate it. If I do as funkinalive suggests, the gears alone are going to be about $420. I don't think its in the budget. I just wonder how bad it will be. Based upon the wear you see, do you think it will hit false neutral while shifting, or jump out of gear...or both? I feel bad for this kid as he has already bought a new crank, bearings, jug, piston, valves, head work, etc.

    Another rotella oil question

    I ran the regular (T) in my 09 YZ250f from new till over 100 hrs. when I sold it. I'm sure it would work fine with synthetic too.

    Another rotella oil question

    I run it in everything. No problems in 5 years on any machine running it. (at least none that are related to oil) Hell, I put that sh*t on my pancakes!

    Anyone WTT '01 for '02+ CR250

    Good luck with the trade. IMO, you should build the 3rd gen frame with the old motor. This was my 02 chassis with a 98 motor. I loved that bike, and it wasn't too difficult to stuff it in there. I still miss that bike. As said before, that is a CLEAN 01!

    07 RMZ 250 Worn gears. PICS!

    So, I'm in the process of doing a complete top and bottom end rebuild for a friend of mine, and while we are waiting on head work and a valve job, I have been looking at the transmisison. I have been looking at many threads of people complaining about the weak transmission of the 07-08 rmz250's, so I figure it should be addressed before we put it back together. There is clearly some wear on the gears where the dogs engage. From the pics I have shown, does this look like they need to be replaced? Keep in mind these gears are approx $75 each. To the people who are also having shifting problems and false neutrals, did your gears look like this? I also found a small spot where there is a "dent" on the shift drum. I know if it was a pro bike/rider there would be no question to replace, but this is for a "d"-ish level rider who will ride more woods than moto. WWYD?

    DP in November

    Has the willy's got the best of your wallet? Come on goose, you can't get out of riding dirt for good. I'll have that 06 kx 250 by then and you are welcome to ride my 250f. But you gotta come down so I can make fun of your casual boots. Those are a hoot.

    So when is the confirmed date on this? I can go either one or both, but just need to make plans.

    I'll go anytime. Went last weekend for labor day and going again this weekend. The new pro track is outstanding. Technical, but so much fun! Here are some pics from last weekend if anyone is interested. http://dirtbikedoctor.com/blog

    Who has the NICEST YZ/WR 250F on Thumpertalk?

    It's a galpher braided stainless line that I took off of a bike I parted out. The fitment is a little off. I was wondering if anyone would catch that. Good eye.

    Indiana Riders, where're you at ???

    Excellent, Thank you very much for your help! I think I will have to check out Lincoln Trail. It looks like it's a pretty long track. 1mi. plus? It's also great that it is only about 45 mins from Terre Haute. I will probably be riding there on Sat. the 3rd. If anyone would like to join me, please send me a PM.

    Indiana Riders, where're you at ???

    I'm not trying to jack your thread here, but I need a little advice. I looked in the "where to ride" section for IN and IL, but I would like some opinions for the best place to ride MX within about an hour from Terre Haute. I will be going up there over the 4th of July to visit some family and I would love to check out some of the best MX tracks you have. It will be fun to ride some of that mid-west brown dirt instead of the NC clay I am used to here. Also, my state does not require any registering for OHV's. I would assume that if I am riding tracks only and no trails, then I would not have to worry about any law enforcement? Thanks in advance for your help, and If anyone is riding that weekend 7/3-7/4 , and would like to show a fellow TT'er around, please let me know.
