    '12 250 CRF

    I have a CRF250R with stock gearing and it will go 83 mph pegged in fifth. i wouldnt run faster than 55 for long distances due to rpms tho. Also my bike has a wiseco high comp piston, stage 2 hotcam, and a few other minor engine mods, so stock probably isnt near that fast.

    Busted crf engine?

    yeah, my mechanic said he would check the cylinder for more debris. He is going back with Honda parts so I won't have to tear back into it again in a few races.

    Yehh... I payed $2000 for it, and it is really fast and souped up, but I'm beginning to wonder if I made a good buy. The bloke I bought it from still hasnt mailed me the title, and I can't contact him. He changed his number.

    I took the cover off as suggested, and the problem was not the decompression mechanism, it was the piece between the rocker arm and the valve. it had busted apart on one valve, and pieces were down in the top of the head, so I got them out with a magnet. I brought it to my dads atv mechanic, to do a valve job for me. He said the problem was that whoever installed upgrades on my bike (previous owner) put a stage 3 hot-cam running stock valve springs(major no-no). So he's rebuilding the top end and putting heavier springs in it.

    I had a few mechanic buddies take a look at it, and they seem to think my decompression valve stuck open, should I just take it out or replace it?

    I just bought the bike, but it came with supposedly "nice" racing rims. my dad suggests that the problem is actually a few dry rotted spots in my tire, which causes wobbling?

    My back tire wobbles a little bit, and it's not my bearings, it's my rim. The sprocket and brake disk are fine, just the rim is a little out of whack. Is there a way to fix this or just buy a new rim?

    Busted crf engine?

    Hey guys, I recently bought an 06 crf250r. I immediately changed the oil, checked chain, and cleaned intake filter before riding. This weekend while riding with a friend, it just stopped working.. my buddy was the one driving when it happened, so I'm not sure exactly what went down, but I was 30 feet away on his 450, and saw it happen. He was driving in 3rd gear, and it just "stopped running". Now the kickstart makes a clicking sound, and when I push the bike while it's in gear it makes a clicking/snapping sound inside, like I threw a rod maybe? Any idea what this is?

    Leaving your dirt-bike filthy!

    Hey fellas, I know this is totally unrelated, sorry, but i'm new to thumper talk, and I can not figure out how to post a new thread! Could someone please give me a quick how-to? Also, I clean my bike every 2nd or 3rd ride, and I only use water on the plastics, I use a slightly oily dry rag on anything metal. ( except exhaust)
