    2013 rmz250 forks

    Im in the middle of rebuilding my forks right now, just wondering if anyone has the 2013 service manual and could help me out with specs, or even someone that knows where i can get a paid or free pdf for it, i dont have a manual and cannot find oil specs anywhere online, thanks for the help
  2. Txc lost compression, opened valve cover and it appears one of the exhaust valve springs has snapped, I have cams out, my question here is how do I pull the cam chain gear (oil pump too??) out to remove cam chain from it to take the head off and how to find tdc for reassembly, I think I got it But I just want to be sure I think that is tdc but I wouldn't mind a second opinion if that's possible, I have cam notches facing out horizontally, lobes are both angled out, I checked clearances with a shim which seemed to right except of course the snapped one was way low, piston appears to be at top of stroke from looking in spark plug hole and you can see a small hole at edge of fly wheel is pointed up Last picture is of part I'm trying to remove, where the oil line comes in also holds that main cam chain wheel with a secondary gear on back that turns cams, I took oil line off and chain tensioner out, two Phillips are removed it wiggles out a bit but doesnt want to pull through, I may not be pulling hard enough but I just want to be sure before I apply too much force

    Help me wheelie/stoppie

    Try standing up, I have found this let's me get more weight where I want it and I like fast power wheelies too, I'm not too good at slow wheelies http://s993.photobucket.com/user/joey_2-fitty/media/3F5DD034-475C-462B-9A02-85EF3BAC556D_zpsjacomjcg.mp4.html

    Which Frame guards should I buy?

    sometimes company's use generic images for their stuff like in your case that is just a frame guard for some random bike and is not what you will be getting, if it says it fits your bike get it.

    So the AMA fined Malcom?

    hey if you notice rule 10 states a monster energy supercross event and technically this was not a monster energy sx event but daytona sx because of their copyright stuff or im just thinking about it wrong or overthinking it

    power up a jump

    This might be wrong or sound backwards but i always just sit on the back of the bike to seat bounce try not to preload the front at all and the preload only the back shock therefore when you come off the lip the front will stay a little lower and not rebound up will the back will rebound up level but dont do this without the throttle or you will endo. And i have never has someone tell me this i have just found this work so if someone more experienced would also comment that would help
