    DR650 frame color

    Thanks. But it looks like that is the tank color, whereas I need the frame color.

    Can Dirt Bikes & ATV Co-Exist?

    Kwad guy aspires to be SxS guy. Probably, but I hate the UTV guys more. Once they make a trail that those guys can ride on, you might as well drive a Harley down it for all the challenge you'll get out of it.

    Can Dirt Bikes & ATV Co-Exist?

    Contact Bryan Much from WOHMA - they are doing great things for dirt bikes in WI http://www.wohma.com/ https://advrider.com/f/threads/wisconsin-ohm-ds-motorcyclists-trail-and-legislative-issues.423792/page-87 I have much more disdain for UTVs over ATVs though. God I hate those things. And everyone is buying them in Wisconsin. We can unite with ATVers against them!

    Made this for my son for Christmas

    Very cool. My kids rode with me when they were younger. Now in their mid teens, my son still does ride on occasion but my daughter retired from riding. Enjoy it !! Life gets in the way real fast

    40F0 pipe in classifieds

    If anyone is interested I put a GSXR 1000 40F0 pipe in the classifieds for an exhaust upgrade

    snorkel out question

    I have the snorkel out of my 2001 XR 250. Moved the needle clip up one notch to improve mid range, which helped. I put a 135 main jet in to offset the snorkel removal based on some old posts on this forum. Is that an adequate size to offset any lean issues? Bike seems to run well. Thanks

    slow jet

    Good stuff - thanks Chuck! https://www.steahlyoffroad.com/honda-crf-250x-2004-17-flywheel-complete-517 So you recommend the 12 ounce (for slow and timid trail riders?) ; ) I'm only 51 Chuck!!

    slow jet

    Chuck, what can you tell me about disconnecting the TPS? Any tips?

    slow jet

    Thanks. The bike runs so nice though. Doesn't make sense. I am going to try a different method of setting the fuel screw first. I have read that it is set right when you can squeeze the hot start and gain rpms, but is there truth to the bike shutting off when choked when set correctly?

    slow jet

    I have a 2015 that is stock except PAIR valve removed, and I installed a 140 main at the suggestion of some forum members to keep it cooler at high RPMs. I am not interested in the airbox mod or the JD jet kit. I am trying to keep a mild throttle response for tight woods riding. This past weekend we rode in upper Michigan and it seemed to lag on me a few times at low idle in some tough spots that caused me to wipe out - the motor just quit. So I checked the RD flex fuel screw and ended up at like 3 -3/4 turns out. Which seemed odd. I was able to get good results at that setting, as in bike rpms rose when I pulled in hot start, and died when I choked it. But 3 3/4 turns out is alot. So I installed a 45 slow jet tonight and preliminary readings are at like 3 turns out yet to achieve similar results. This is not what I expected. Anyone have similar experience? Are the Flex screw readings similar to oem slow jets? Thanks
