    RM250 Tire concern

    Had to pump a tire once to 70psi to make it seat on the rim. Might have to deflate it 3-4 times to wear in the rubber and don’t try it on cold ground. A warm driveway in the sun works best.
  3. I had a jetski that sat for a couple of years and didn’t start so I took it to work after I took it apart and ultra sonically cleaned. Your definitely going to have do some deep cleaning with today’s gas & no previous fuel treatment.

    Recovered Stolen XR400 Tough Old Bird!

    Great news. Truly lucky the stoners that robbed your bike were really lazy, because they usually part the bikes out on cl & eBay Around where I live.

    1983 honda xr350r

    Check your kill button first then go thru what the other contributors mention and maybe look into finding another wiring harness on eBay

    Float Bowl Screw Screwed

    If you drill it out use a lefthanded bit it will drive the screw out instead of in so you don’t have it use an extractor

    The 300 tried to kill me today...

    Check the needle main jet clearance. Could be a lot of dirt or sand getting thru the vent hoses

    Where should I start with this? 1995 KE 100

    Clean it off with a wire brush as best you can. Then pull the carb and spray a lot of pb blaster into the rotary & crankcase and let sit overnight. It should be loose the next morning, if not maybe pour some diesel fuel in the crankcase and let it fit a few days. Got nothing to lose

    Does this have a machined edge inside?

    If it held a bearing it was machined. Tolerances for bearing fits are usually-/+ .0005 of an inch

    What do you recommend to get this off?

    If the screw extractor doesn’t work. Use a left handed drill with pb blaster.

    1980 pe 175 upgrades?

    You might want to look into a later suzuki trail bike with a disc brake front end . Maybe a dr 200 might work
