  1. I could not engineer it worse if I had NASA on it. My foot blasts the peg every kick. I am pretty versed in the kickstart yoga moves, I started kicking these things in 1980. I could get by with a shorter one, bent one....but I am gonna build a hot shoe if I keep on with this one.
  2. I have a 99' 250 and every kick is just flat painful. I have heard other levers will fit, but will they offer me a bit more clearance at the end of the stroke?

    Good Old Make over

    I did a total resto on a 1999. I only took it on because I had an injury and needed a time passer. I have since sold my new bikes and LOVE my old bike. It's kinda fun to hand it to your buds then refer to your bike as "vintage".....lol. for a enduro bike, the steel frame works great for me.

    Funky Shifting Problem - Has anyone else seen this?

    I had some trouble with shifting on my last trip. I was searching for similar trouble on my way home. I found that what happened to you has happened to a good few others. I lucked out and my shifter bolt backed out.
  5. I can identity. I had an accident at work which led to shoulder surgery after trying 4 months of therapy. Post op I was told I could ride in about two months. Seven months later I still could not put my wallet in my pocket or...wipe. at 9 months it hurt so bad I asked the Dr to take it off. Finally after another surgery I have started my bike and rode it twice. I am most sad that I let the pain get me down and gave up a ton of strength while gaining weight.....but its all turning around and coming together. I figure without bad days, I would not be able to appreciate the good ones. Keep your chin up, hit the gym and you will be half way there.
  6. Thrust clearance is much more forgiving than rod end play. You need to have the piston on the rod and the jug on the case. Set an indicator on the dome at tdc and roll it back and forth at tdc. This will show you the dwell. If you are getting excessive dwell, its bearing slop and fix it time.

    epic fail last night--- bottom end rebuild

    Everyone has a bum product. Look at Polaris, they warranted so many cranks on the 8&900 that they killed the design. I trued my wiseco to as close as my 10ths indicator would let me. It's smooth as glass. It started a couple thou out, but not bad.

    Selling my YZ250. Allow Test Rides?

    I had a buyer roll my jeep in the driveway. No cash in my hand....no ride.

    Always blowing my bike up...

    If you are burning them down before they grenade a piston....you have tuning issues. Post up some pics of your burndowns.
  10. Devcon 10110 or jb will do it, but be aware that jb will drip into the case if there is an open hole. I would watch ebay for a new case because that stuff drives me nuts.

    No top end power...

    A good rule of thumb to follow is not to mess with a known good setup. Jetting does not magicly go bad. The answer will lie within your work 99% of the time. Always work backwards and check all the simple things you messed with....it typically will show up.

    Graphics. Alternatives? White plastic?

    I did get some dye in the fuel, but I run 110 which is dyed at the pump and my oil is dark....so i can't say how much. I have not seen any black on my pants.
