  3. I was changing the oil in the front forks and I think the previous owner put the springs in wrong. Does the wider gap in the fork spring go down or up. The picture in my repair manual shows the wider gap up, but when I removed the springs the smaller gap was on top. I believe these are progressive springs. Thanks, Rick

    Front fork springs (2001)

  5. I haven't been to School Creek in over a year. Last year I went with a friend and it was closed due to flooding and then the weather turned too hot. A group of us are planning on riding there this Friday, June 1, but I've heard there has been alot of rain and possible flooding again. Anyone ride there over Memorial Day weekend that could give me a report? Thanks, Rick

    Fork fluid levels

    Now a days, they use oil level measurment because you may not get all the oil out. Here is a good website to figure out your measurement: http://www.mx-tech.com/?id=bike_information Make sure you pump the rod up and down about 15 times before taking a measurement from the top of the fork tube.

    FMF or Pro Circuit

    FMF's plating is very poor. The last two pipes I've had starting rusting the first time they got wet. I had a ProCircuit on my 2003 YZ250 and two years later it still looked brand new.

    Kansas Riders!

    Wicked, I envoy you, you will be soooo close to School Creek offroad riding area at Milford Lake, just 20 miles away. That is my favorite of all riding places.

    Blue or Black Clark Tank? Please post pics!

    After time, white will turn brownish color because of the octane in the gas.

    what gear box oil ? yz125

    Another good oil to use is 15W40 Rotella T or Delvac 1300 diesel oil. Been using both in my KTM 125sx, 250 exc, 300 xcw for years and still on same clutches.

    Spongy rear brake

    I had a 2003 SX125 do the same and I purchased the rebuild kit and it fixed the problem. Before the fix, you could pump up the rear brake and then it would gradually fade or fail completely.

    Need Help With Brakes!

    Back bleed the brakes by pushing oil up from the caliper to the master cylinder with a large syringe and rubber hose attached to the bleeder screw.

    I see KTM has a recall on 2009 KTM's with the forks. Go to KTM's website and read the recall.

    11oz or 13oz FWW?

    Mackeymx put a 11 oz on his 2009 YZ250 and now wished he went with a 13 oz.
