  1. I had to make my own seat brackets, an adapter plate for the air box to air boot connection, an adapter plate for the left side mount, and some spacers for the top of the subframe. plastics- 2013 450f airbox- 2013 450f subframe- 2010 250f (same as 09-current 450f/250f)

    What model Ohlins shock do I have?

    Alright, thanks guys. Edit: Would the factory settings on the 5920 be the same as the 6920? Also, if there is an owners manual for it, could someone give me a link to it? Ive looked on the Ohlins site, and can't find any manuals, but an ebay search turned up a couple of .pdf files for some of their other models. Either way, thanks for all the help.

    Ok. On the opposite side of the mounting bolt is the #SU 5920.

    I see. I'll take a closer look at it once I get home

    So on the top of the shock body, right by the mounting bolt is the # 301339. It also has "DR1" engraved into the body.

    Awesome! Thanks!
  7. So my brother just got an 06 rm250, and it came with an ohlins shock on it. We've been trying to set the suspension back to the factory settings and go from there, which was easy on the forks, being they are still the oem showas. I don't know where to begin on the shock though, as I don't even know what model it is. Ive been looking up some stuff on the ohlins website, but I haven't really found a match for what we have. I might just give them a call tomorrow, but in the meantime, I thought I would post up some pictures of it to see if anyone here could I.D. it.

    Need an 05-07 kx250 frame...

    Hadn't even thought of that. Thanks!
  9. So, As the title says, I am in need of a 05-07 kx250 frame.I know its a long shot, but if anyone has one they would like to get rid of, please pm me with a price.
  10. Mine was repaired with my patella. Mine took about 6 months for recovery, although the front of my knee was quite sore for about 2 years. I had mine done in July of 2010, and haven't had any problems as far as re-injuring it. I race hare scrambles in SC and NC, ride standup jet skis, and ride mountain bikes. I would say my repaired knee is just as strong now, if not stronger than my other knee.

    my 06 kx250 "experience"

    No problem. For me, the braces fit "ok" with the stock tank, but there was absolutely no way with the big tank. Im not sure those braces do a whole lot anyway. I took a good tumble into a tree a little over a year ago and the left brace was folded up like a taco, and my radiator was all twisted up. If anything I will get Devol guards next time.

    Langston better than emig?

    I gotta say I liked Langston's commentary and was it was a nice change from the last 5 months of Sheheen screaming.

    my 06 kx250 "experience"

    That is the IMS in the picture. It is a good bit wider on the top. It was a PITA to get the shrouds to bolt to the radiators though. I ended up having to remove the WC radiator braces, and it was still pretty difficult to bolt up the shroud. The seat cover is from MotoSeat. I think its called the Fortify. There is a canvas patch where your knees rub most often.

    my 06 kx250 "experience"

    Ok. I got my suspension back together about three weeks ago. I ended up getting replacement pistons from Smart Performance Inc. Dave was very helpful, and I got my parts very quickly. So thanks to KDXGarage for pointing me in their direction. I also scored an IMS tank for $80 from the classifieds section here. Ive been wanting one for a while but couldn't swallow the price tag of a new one. I should be able to make a whole 2hr. hare scramble now without pitting for gas. Ive done one HS since getting the tank and it only took a few minutes to get used to the weight of the tank/extra fuel. I did end up stopping for fuel once as the track had a lot of wide open straights. I also recently have swapped out my #50 pilot jet for a #48 I had. The bike no longer gets the "loaded up" feeling after riding through slow, tight, technical sections in the woods. ***EDIT: also got a braided stainless front brake line, which paired with the oversized rotor, gives the brake a nice solid feel and will stop you on a dime. Heres a picture of her all together minus the hand guards and an exhaust hanger.

    How can I make my bike look factory for cheap?

    Because you have already got your graphics figured out, try to keep anything you do color wise within the same scheme. I would do blue vent hoses, blue rad hoses (scratch that if you want to keep the green). Get your hubs powder coated either blue, black or green. If you want hand guards, I would go with white ones. With the seat cover, get a custom one from motoseat if you don't mind the price tag, or get a pleated one off ebay thats already been made. Radiator fins always get beat up and nasty looking. Maybe throw a few coats of satin black on them.
