  1. Hmm... I think I have one of those saws.. Hus 136 or 137? You'll need it up at GT. Lost of stuff all over the trails. Not like one or two to roll over. I'm talking LOTS of logs. Tons. We should put a group of 6+ guys together with saws and go clean it up.
  2. They were blocking the cool single track trails that have been there for many years. BS if you ask me.
  3. Was out there last Friday and it was horrible. Stuff everywhere as you stated... We also saw two younger rangers that were putting logs and brush onto existing trails to block them! Out on the ride we ran into a trail that had been clearly damaged by the same guys... It's really nasty what the rangers are doing out there. Not sure how to stop them but this is just nuts!
  4. That's a bummer.... Is the XR250 and L or R?
  5. Anyone know if the XR250L rear shock bodies are hard anodized? I heard some of the older XR one's were not... don't want one of those. So trying to figure out if they are are not... Txs, PT
  6. Any idea what the eye to eye length of that 82 CR shock is? One issue on these older shocks is adjustments... there isn't much in the way of rebound clickers... So you give some stuff up there. Right now I have a CR80 shock I've modified... but getting springs for it will be a challenge. And valving it for a 9.0 or greater KG spring is... well not what it was designed for! The stock springs are 4.6 or so... but the CRF230 has a high leverage ration on that shock. You have to take all this into account.
  7. Anyone happen to have the stock spring internal dimension (ID) and free (uncompressed) length handy?
  8. I have this project bike in the garage. It's a CRF230F rolling chassis no motor. I'm going to be putting in it a 2 stroke engine. The stock rear CRF230F shock is junk. Fox doesn't offer their version anymore. So I'm looking to put a different shock on it that has modern features... rebound, compression adjusters etc. And I don't have a carb on the right side of the bike to worry about hitting... thus I'm looking for a piggy back reservior shock. I've been looking at the XR600 shocks. Apparently the eye to eye length is 15 1/4 (~ 3.2 in of shaft travel on crf230 stock) which is the stock length of the CRF230F shock. They have the approx right shaft travel too. And you can get the springs for those in the 9kg - 12 kg range (the CRF230 stock spring is ~9 KG - thus you need access to these types of rates). So, has anyone tried one of these shocks on a CRF230F chassis? Or does someone know of another shock that may fit? I can revalve it and reduce the travel etc... but I need a starting point that fits the ~ length. Any ideas??
  9. so if you shaft travel is 3.25 in of shock travel... the CR80 shock has ~ 4.3 inches. So I need to shorten the shaft a lot. What is the eye to eye length of your fox or stock shock? I have 15 and 1/4 as the stock length.
  10. That's the info I need... did you take and accurate measurement? Thus those numbers are good? If so I have enough shaft travel to short'n it and still have over 3.5 in of shock travel left.
  11. So I'm looking at grafting a CR80 shock onto a CRF230. Ny understanding is the CRF230 shock is 15 ¼ inch – eye to eye. Does anyone know the length of the shaft travel? I have to shorten the CR80 shock but I'm wondering if I'll run into issues with shaft travel... Thus need the CRF230 shaft travel length. Thanks! Patrick
  12. Looking for a 250x carb for a project bike... please PM me if you have one you'd like to get rid of.
  13. Looking for a 04 or 05 CRF250 carb for a project bike... please PM me if you have one you'd like to get rid of. Txs,
  14. I have a 06 YZ250 and had the same issues as I was coming from a 4 stroke as well. 1st put on a 13 oz fly wheel. I'd go bigger if they had them... 2nd put a 1 tooth larger front sprocket on it.. I believe stock is 14/50... go to a 15/50. This helps a bunch. Stock gearing is too low... harsh. 3rd carb spacer as recomended here... IT's a great motor but needs to be mellowed out for trails.
  15. So I have this 08 RMZ250 that I'm having rear brake issues with. The darn rear brake seems to over heat really easily and completely fad away. It has fresh fluid... Just happened to me today for the 2nd time while off road riding. Has anyone else had this issue? I wish the Honda rear brake fit on there as I'd swap it out... but the bolt holes don't line up. Has anyone else had issues with the RMZ250 Rear bake? Did you find a solution? Steel brake line.... different pads... something!
