  1. Hey Guys, I bought an 04 250 EXC over the winter and spent the winter making the thing like new. I have previously rode an rmx250 and an 02 CR250. I have a couple hours on the KTM and everything is great but when I stand on the pegs and get more than 1/4 throttle the pegs vibrate enough to make my feet super tingly. I never had this issue with my other 2 strokes. Is this a KTM thing or do you think I have a problem. Thanks in advance for any input. Braaaaaaaap!!!
  2. Spend a little time jetting the carb. Give us a little more information on your current jetting and needle position. Also, is it running crappy down low or when wide open or both. Sounds like your running way rich and could drop your needle down a clip or two.
  3. Give him 1500 and rebuild the bike. You would be helping out a friend and helping yourself. If your patient you can get some great deals on ebay. Also, if your anything like me its like therapy working on my bike in the winter time up north. Ya, you will probably have another 1500 into it and you will probably lose money if you go to resell it. But most of us are not in it to make money on our bikes. We just like to ride and in my case working on my 02 is a stress reliever.
  4. I do woods riding and run 40:1 yamalube. I don't get in the high rpm range enough to ride 32:1. Keeps from fouling plugs and its popping out plenty of great smelling smoke
  5. Hey guys looking for some more input. I have a new rim and spoke set that is a 19 x 1.85. Will my 120/80/19 tire fit on this rim. If so, what are the pros and cons of putting a larger tire on the smaller rim. Thanks
  6. Thanks guys, I found the problem this morning. The carb had a moose rebuild kit installed in it and evidently the needle is not the same size as the stock one. I re-installed the the stock needle and after some experimenting ended up with it in the first clip position. After some fine tuning with the idle and air screw it is running perfect in all rpm ranges. Man i'm going to love this thing. I
  7. I'm having difficulty dialing in my cr250. It is running rich across the board. I am running 30 SJ and 380 MJ. I have the needle clip on the top most position to lean it out but no luck. It is idling ok but it spits and sputter from 1/8 to pretty much full throttle. Once I have it wide open for a couple of seconds it cleans out and rips. It is also pushing out more smoke at all rpms than it probably should. I am riding alot of woods so I need it to run well down low as well as wide open. I have been reading through some forums and it seems to be a common problem with the 02 carb. I am thinking of grabbing an S-8 needle valve to try and lean it up. Anyone have any luck doing this? I don't have the money to buy the PWK carb so i'm stuck with jetting solutions. Thanks in advance for any advice
  8. OK, I put my 13/52 sprocket combo on last night. I needed 117 links for the chain. I did have to add a few spacers for to the back chain guide as the chain was just barely rubbing the outside aluminum. Had to move it a couple of milometers. The gearing is much better for woods riding now. I would like to slow it down even more but I think once I get used to it it will be fine. I am however running rich. I I have a 30 PJ and a 380 MJ. I haven't looked at the needle clip position yet. Thinking of lowering the needle down a little to lean it up a bit.
  9. What is the downside of a 12 tooth front. Looking at the gear ratio it would do the job and would be cheaper the buying a new chain?
  10. Thanks Guys, I guess I'll buy a 120 and make it smaller if needed. I had a chain breaker but can't find the damn thing now. If anyone needs a 49 tooth rear I wil sell mine cheap. Its an aluminum vortex and I think the cost about 60-70 dollars or so. I would sell it for $20 if anyone wants it. It is just about new.
  11. I am trying to ride my 02 cr250 in the woods with the 13/49 sprocket combo and first gear is just too crazy. I ride in tight technical stuff and break trails often. I am sick of slipping the clutch 90% of the time. I bought a 52 tooth rear sprocket and my 114 link chain is too short. It looked like a 116 would be the right size. Can anyone confirm the 116 link will work? And do in need to modify my stock chain guides at all with the 52 sprocket? Thanks in Advance:)
  12. Ok, I think I am in the right forum now:) I posted this in the crf250 yesterday. I just picked up an 02 CR250. It has an FMF gnarly pipe on it. I am going to be riding trails only. Some of which have slower technical stuff. I am an intermediate rider. I have a couple of questions. 1.) Is it worth it to get an aftermarket flywheel weight. If so what size? 2.) What sprocket combos are best for the woods? 3.) Are the flywheel weights difficult to install? I have been riding a 93 RMX250 for the past couple of years that was set up for the woods and came with the heavier flywheel. But I couldn't pass up the deal on this CR250. Thanks in advance for any advice. Braaaaap Braaaaaap!!!

  14. Definately worth fixing up. I just bought a 93 RMX this winter. I have found many parts on ebay. & cheapcycleparts.com. Plastics are the same as 89-92 RM250. Also, check out the classifieds in TT. Someone was parting out their RMX. With a few inexpensive mods, this thing rips. I could keep up with newer 450 four strokes if i had the skill. Still working on the skill part. If you keep it somewhat original with front and tail light you could always sell it and probably make a few bucks. If I was you I would fix it up and keep it. The old 2 strokes are getting harder to come by. Mine puts a smile on my face everytime I hit the throttle. Here is a walk around view of mine.
  15. I found the coupon code, it brings the price down to $19.99, if anyone wants an inexpensive bike lift. Tax and shipping came to $29.00 total. The code is below and works on the Harbor Freight website. Haul-Master - item#66552 Coupon Code 49372437
