    Anyone building xr200 cranks with stepped pin?

    From Greenhuman I have a crank with a 4mm step pin, a BBR 67 mm piston ready for my XL 185 project, The rod had to be clearanced a bee's dick and that is all. I cant report on it actually running as I am still waiting on Cam and valve train from Terry Miller / Team Rude.

    I am so frustrated, I parted ways with $800 + cash, no response to texts from Terry of late, Have I done my money, do I get my parts elsewhere, then a week later he comes through with his parts for me?

    facts on the new CRF250f

    So what you are saying is that it provides great potential as a low end platform for all you guys to start over on tips, upgrades and modifications for the next 10 years!

    So here I am, again, asking if anyone had success retrieving parts or money from Terry miller? I have had no contact except another brief text excuse more than a month ago. Any one else had contact?
  5. Unfortunately in good faith I sent a ton of money up front for cam and valve train 7 months ago, unfortunately for me I don't have the funds to get these parts elsewhere. A very dissapointing outcome.

    crank sprocket XR 200

    I don't know, although I assumed another installation method would be to debur all surfaces, heat the new sprocket in an oven to 160C ( sorry I don't know F), Then it would just slide over the crank snout and also allow enough time before cooling for a rotation adjustment if necessary. Is this acceptable?

    XR200 head

    Hi, i think I remember a picture of an XR200 head section cut so you could see the port, jackets and valve throats. If someone has that can they please post it up, It would really help the guy that is going to massage my head. He does headwork on road race heads so he has the smarts, he said that a cut away will show him the limit.
  10. Be careful of low cost Ebay complete gasket kits, the one i purchased has very thin paper gaskets compared to OEM, What effect this centre case gasket may have I can only imagine with gear and crank clearances, the head and base gaskets could be an issue is not calculated. In hind sight I wish i spent the extra $$ on OEM.

    Terry text me this morning, he has been away fire fighting for a while. Being from the other side of the world I googled Oregon and saw it has some rugged mountainous terrain, fire season.

    Terry has been on this site in the last week! Presumably seen this topic and read his private messages.

    1974 MX 250 UPDATE

    The most common way would be to re instal the clutch and then wedge a soft coin between the clutch and crankshaft gears. Then just crack open all three nut,s. Regarding the flywheel, yes you need a puller, there must be some cheap ones on Evilbay that can do the job, nothing special. DO NOT HIT IT WITH A HAMMER.
