    Spray paint black rims?

    Inner clutch cover cracked

    Had a good day on the bike today and when I was loading it up, I noticed oil leaking. After washing it I found a small .5" crack in the inner clutch cover where one of the bolts go. I can't find an impact or dent in that area so I don't think it was a rock. I thought maybe I tightened the bolt too much, put it wasn't over tightened. 8-10 ft pounds maybe. Should I JB weld this and use loctite when I put that bolt in to just snug it down a little bit? Or does the whole inner clutch cover need to be replaced?

    KTM repair manual?

    Does anyone make a detailed ktm repair manual? I"m not talking about the owners manual I mean like a third party repair manual.

    Installing piston circlip

    I had no idea that's what the little groove was for. I spent a good 2hrs trying to get those little bastards on, had to fish it out of the case once and lost it on the garage floor for a good 20 minutes too. Now if there was an easy way to do the piston rings...

    250sx vs 150sx

    A 150sx can hang with any 250f it just takes more shifting, more clutch work and it's easier to make a mistake like not being in the right gear which will slow your lap times. You can't ride a 150sx fast and be lazy at the same time.

    250sx vs 150sx

    For some reason the 2016 250sx didn't get all the motor and frame updates that the 150sx, 125sx, 250f and 450f got. I'm seriously considering selling my 14 yz250f and getting a 16 150sx.

    Performance supplements

    Do any of you guys take whey protein, creatine, testosterone booster, BCAAs, pre-workout, multi-vitams or any other supplements? If so, what do you take and does it work? I'll go first. I take Optimum Protein and Ubervita mufti-vitamin and I just orderd some Optimum creatine that I'll be starting soon. I workout 3x a week, mostly circuit training, insanity, running and HIIT stuff.

    Critique my race

    First race of the season on my 14 yz250f in the 30b. I only had 3 practice laps to learn the track I've never ridden before. Its my first 4 stroke and I'm still learning how to ride it I've only ever raced a two stroke. I crashed int he whoops on the second lap and my wheel/forks were out of alignment. Any tips or pointers are appreciated thanks guys,

    Critique my race

    Setting up the rekluse was actually a breeze, I had it on my 150sx too. You can change when the clutch engages/disengages by changing out the springs. I've never had it stick or act jerky, maybe when your first warming up your bike on a cold day but that happens with any clutch.

    Critique my race

    I have a rekluse so it reduces the engine braking some. Not as much as a two stroke but somewhere in-between. You use the clutch as much as on your 150? I rarely use it maybe once or twice a lap. This bike pulls hard from down low, nothing like my 150sx.

    Critique my race

    Its by Butte, MT. Ya not knowing the track was a big part of why I was hesitant especially on the downhills and long sweepers. The track was a blast

    red hot header pipe?

    This might be silly, but I've only owned 2 strokes and this is my first 4 stroke. After washing my bike today I started it to help dry it out and it was starting to get dark outside and I noticed my header turned red hot. Is this normal? I never noticed the pipe turn red like that before.

    red hot header pipe?

    Is it possible the power washer soaked the air filter and restricted some air so it ran a little lean and hotter then normal?

    red hot header pipe?

    ok. I did have the choke on too and let it idle for about 5 minutes

    2013 vs 2014 yz250f? newer really worth it?

    I own a stock 14 yz250f, bought it new this year have 32hrs on it, 30b racer. My friend who I ride with all the time has a 12 yz250f. We trade bikes often, I probably have a good 5 hours on his bike on the track. We both agree that my bike has more power from top to bottom, it over revs better and pulls harder. Suspension wise its hard to compare because he's about 25lbs heavier then me, but his bike feels good and they both corner pretty much the same. He's selling his bike and getting a 14 or 15 at the end of this year, enough said.

    Lowering Fork Oil Level Q

    Can I use a syringe on the bleed hole and pull the fluid out without taking the forks off and flipping them upside down?

    Lowering Fork Oil Level Q

    Does dropping the oil level make the forks more likely to bottom but more plush for lighter rider? I'm considering dropping my oil level 10-20cc. I weigh 160lbs with gear and the forks are for 175lbs

    HR when practicing or racing.

    For the guys that race motocross whats your Heart Rate when practicing or racing? I did my first test last week and during 18 minute hard practice my average was 168 Max 181. Hows does that compare to what you guys have seen. I'm 31 years old, +30 B, hopefully will move into the A class this year.
  21. I changed out the shift stop for the new one and now the shifting is really difficult and notchy. Like 10x harder to shift then before. Here's some pics of the new shift stop installed, does it look right? the wheel/bearing part doesn't look like its rolling or contacting the shift mechanism above it. Is that normal?

    Any 14 mechanicals out there to report?

    Fixed it. I found the spacer that holds the spring, sitting in the bottom of the case. You can actually see it in the second pic. Glad that didn't get caught in the clutch or gears and do some real damage.
