    RYAN villopoto

    Is it me or did Davalos and Stewart both look winded and out of shape after the races? Villo , Reed, Dung not even breathing hard Stew sucking wind sweating like a fat kid and snot all down his face?Davalos damn that was only a qualifier looked like he was gona die lol
  3. If so what yrs. also what yr crf250r complete clutches ( hub, basket , pressure plate) fit an 05 250r. mines shot and money is tight im looking on e bay. any other suggestions of where to look.
  4. My sons 05 clutch is getting wiped out. Basket,pressure plate esp. Im a single father and money is tight. any help would be appreciated. Are these interchangeable with any other models? crf 450, cr 125, cr 250 maybe? Maybe you changed your stock one out for a hinson or whatever and have this sitting in the garage
  5. Or rather is there a yr that doesnt fit an 05 crf250? I need a 5.5 or 5.6 for my kids 05 250f. Hes a novice but weighs 210lb. Thanks for your help Jeff. ( actually Cody ).
  6. So that pretty much says it. Im buying a bike and now that they are a yr old would like to know which to buy. Im 190 novice not racing anymore. Ive had an 06 yz for 4 seasons. How much better than mine is the 09 yz. seems kinda shitty to buy essentially the same bike. on the other hand I do not have money to go fixing a brand new bike. monies tight so the 5 k for the bike is it! Thanks for your help and yes Ive searched and searched threads and not got a answer just a lot of arguing. Thanks Jeff

    tight valves on a brand new bike ?

    I run clean filters grease the lip run filter skins and check the boot.If I didnt know better and it was someone else I'd say the filter let dirt in too. plus we are in the north east and it has been really wet when weve ridden, hasn't been dusty. I have never had problems like these with yamahas. Ive had 5 racing fourstokes. also very odd was that the right intake was Waaay loose what the hell?. I'm hoping that they were out from the factory but knowing I'll have to do valves on a bike thats hardly been ridden. christ my Yamahas had over 100 hrs each and valves never moved jsut change the timing chain once a yr and call it good, I mean never moved at all documented all of my valve checks. I like the bike for my son but disappointed in valves for sure. anyone know how much im looking at to have valve seats cut by Ron or whom ever? how much are valves?
  9. I bought this bike brand new in the box for my 12 yr old son. He doesnt race is a beginner and doesnt hit the rev limiter. Last week the bike wouldnt start it has hour metered 37 hrs on it. So I break down and check valves and the right intake is so tight it doesnt measure? I got it back in spec runs great now. Is this a break in sort of thinig? or am I screwed and need to order valves on a 37 hr bike? I havnt even gone thru stock chain and sprockets yet !!!!! stock front tire still

    What other spark plug works ?

    noone has the 40 dollar one. I bought an 05 in the crate ran great has 30 hours on it no rev limiter. weather changed dramatically humid as hell 15 degrees hotter. plug has spark but looks wet and dark. the bike was hard to start at the races then at practice wouldnt start but bump started fine. I had put a filter skin on it. I think the skin and the humidity is making the bike rich and fouled plug. It cant be valves already? my son is 12 and he is a beginner.
  11. I have an 06 with 60 hrs on it and it is perfect. now Im no expert either these guys -16 yr old kids especially will totally kill a bike from the inside out in 60 hrs. there are so many bike options out there you should never buy a high hr bike. there are still 06 07 bikes in the crate for 5000.00 why bother even if that bike was 2500 it wouldnt be worth it and if it wasnt shot he wouldnt sell it for that. I know I couldnt or wouldnt sell mine for anywhere near that and its mint and im a slow sr c rider. now if you cant afford 5 k for new then I would look for a sr c riders bike and no kids or expert bikes

    05 crf250

    its a fantastic bike I actually jsut bought one instead of a 06 the 06 and to a lesser degree the 07 has a bad bog and is more of a bike for advanced riders ... the 05 is fantastic .. I wouldnt buy any honda used unless I knew who owned it and that they were a beginner.. but new for new i prefer th 05 .. I paid 4600 and I beat the guy at dealership up bd to get that price the other 05 i found they wouldnt go below 5 k .. i got a price of 5500 for a new 07 still bought 05
  13. did the bike lock up and stall while riding? and kick starter locked up ? its possible . one of your gears is coming apart.. yes you have to split the cases to fix.. but it could also be something else
