  1. Yep I know people are always asking about tires, sorry but here we go again. I ride Colorado trails which are really a mix of everything from mud and loose dirt to roots and rocks. I currently run a maxxis maxcross IT on the rear which I love and a D756 on the front which has worked well for me. Now that the D756 is no more I'm not sure what to do next. Options are maybe a Michelin S12/M12 or perhaps the Maxxis M7304D Maxxcross Desert IT Front Tire or Maxxis M6001 Intermediate Front Tire. I'm not sure that I want to go the Dunlop M51 route... Seem to hear mixed reports on that tire. So has anyone go an opinion for the front tire? I'm staying with Maxxis o nthe rear. Thanks!

    High idle when warm

    Could you explain why replacing the pilot jet and not cleaning it is the right thing to do?
  3. My '03 WR250F fires up just fine, but simply will not idle. If I give it a little throttle and the release it, the exhaust pops badly which would seem to mean that it's very lean and then dies. Never had this issue before. I have had the carb off, cleaned out the jets and also replaced the hot start plastic cover with a zip-ty metal one since the old pastic one was stripped. The zip-ty fuel screw seems to have all of the important parts, o-ring, metal ring, spring so I'm a little lost at this point. Could it be that the hot-start is not seating properly? I can take another look at the pilot jet and make sure it's clean. Any other thoughts that might help...?
  4. Did not have the slide out. I'm going to take another look at the hot start and fuel screw. Thanks.

    Good, inexpensive shorter clutch lever for 07?

    Moose has a short one that I use. I like it. Fits well within my bark busters. It's not expensive.

    Looking to change tire size on rear?

    As a result of what av has said in this and other threads I have started running a Dunlop 952 110/90-18 on my '03 WR250F. No issue at all.

    Should I buy a '03 WR 250?

    In a word. Yep.

    Should I buy a '03 WR 250?

    Yep, it's a great bike. Bought mine new in '03. I've had no problem of any significance. Just standard maintenance and it has been solid. Radiator guards are a must though (I learned from experience), and those bend in the wind bars they came with never lasted more than a couple of rides, but I assume that's been taken care of by the current owner. These and other things like if it has a skid plate and bark busters all add up to around $300 so keep that n mind when you make an offer as well.

    radiator braces

    I have the flatland guards. I've gotta say there excellent. I have managed to bend them a few times (a couple of times pretty seriously) on various crashes over the last 3 or 4 years since I installed them, but the cool thing is that the radiators themselves have never bent or damaged in any way. I simply hammered the guards straight again and we were good to go. No question, two thumbs up .

    06 YZ250F-Mods for more low to mid?

    Back when I was looking for low to mid power on my '03 WR, the DR. D pipe was considered my many as perhaps the best pipe for this type of performance improvement. I bought it and it kicked my bike up a notch! So what's the deal now? Is Dr. D no longer competitive?

    How to get to jets and feul screw, HELP!

    Easiest way to rotate the carb is to loosen the rubber boots that connect to the carb on the engine and airbox sides. Then simply wiggle the carb out of the boots. It will then drop away a little bit and you will be able to rotate it enough to take off the bowl without impacting the hot start. You might have some difficulty getting the screws loose that connect the bowl to the rest of the carb. I did and ended up having to take the carb off. With a little luck you'll be OK.

    Jeremy, that was great. Keep doing them. Thumperfaq might eventually be a cool place to put your videos. Something to consider maybe.

    Dunlop 952 Size

    Reading through the various posts on the subject of tires, I'm going to try the Dunlop 952 on the rear of my WR250F. I assume you're all mostly running the 100/90-19.... or maybe 110/100-18? Any comments on the tire size?

    Radiators and gaurds '03 wr250f

    I have had Flatland radiator guards on my '03 WR250F since I got it pretty much. (Well to be honest I bought them after I crashed and wrecked on the radiators!). Have crashed any number of times since (shows I'm trying), a few times hard enough that the guards looked more like a concetina than a guard! No damage to the radiator however. Took 'em off, straightened them out and they were good to go again. Great investment.

    Will not turn over, Carb cleaner ?

    What does "not turn over at all" mean? Do you mean when you press the magic button nothing happens? or do you mean you simply can't kick it over? or does it turn over and appears that you don't get a spark or something because it doesn't fire up....?

    Dr. D Exhaust on a WR250?

    I have a Dr. D full exhaust system on my '03 WR250F. Made a hell of a difference . Much more pull off the bottom end. Even hangs in there in the wrong gear when the stock exhaust would have simply died. It simply kicks butt in my opinion in the bottom half of the power band. Since I don't spend much time at the top end I can't comment on that. Now as far as whether it has much effect on an '07 I don't know but I would be surprised if it didn't help the bottom end if that's a concern to you.

    wr 250f,2004 Major Bogg

    Agreed, look at the leak jet. This is an easy simple change. Depending on your bike, you may even need to block it. (I do). If you still have issues you will have to dive further in to the AP squirt duration.

    Ordered the Dr. D Exhaust System

    I put a DR.D on my '03 WR205F. Didn't have to rejet. BTW you'll get that low end you're looking for. It made a phenomenal difference. You're gonna love it.

    2003 WR250 any good?

    I don't know what the rest of you think, but that sounds like way to much for an '03.
  24. aztsail

    2003 WR250 any good?

    In my 4th season. Bike is solid and reliable, after you replace the "bend in the wind" bars! No question, buy it.

    Frame Guards?

    Is the carbon fiber sticker wrap the lightspeed registration wrap or something.
