    Torque specs

    I'm working on a friend's 2005 250X and don't have a manual (and unsuccessfully searched this site). What are the torque specs for the steering stem nut, upper and lower fork clamp bolts, and fork pinch bolts?

    tire opinion needed: 100 vs 110 for desert

    I used to run a 110/100-18 until recently switching back to a 100/100-18. My bike turned better, revved quicker, and was more predictable with the skinnier 100 width tire (in trails and desert). I'd like to try a VE33 but they don't make it in a 100/100-18 size.

    Jetting, trail vs. WFO (dunes, etc)

    Here's my specs (with the stock needle): Desert, trails 500-3000' Main 162 (stock) Needle position 3rd position (4th stock) pilot 42 (42 stock) air screw 1.5 turns out (1 stock) For dunes I always run the same 40:1 pre-mix ratio, but I do richen the mainjet (to a 170) and needle position (to the 4th position) from my regular trail/desert settings.

    how often to replace piston

    I went three years (3,000 miles) on my 03 WR250F before putting in a new piston and rings. Made a difference, but not significant.

    KDX220 vs RMX250 (pics too)

    I used to have a 1989 RMX250. I bought a 1995 (first year of the perimeter frame) shortly after. I am 5'6 and 140 pounds (was that height and weight when I had the RMX too). The RMX motor ran awesome. The only mechanical problem I had was going through water pump seals every two months. They fixed that problem in 1990 though. With my height and weight, I couldn't get fork and shock springs light enough for me, so the thing would headshake really bad in fast stuff, and it was way too tall for me. Surprisingly it handled really well in the tight stuff. The 1995 KDX definately had less power and torque, but it was lower (seat height), softer, and handled so much better for me than the suzuki. If I was taller and weighed more it would have been a different story. The suzuki isn't bad, but the KDX can't be beat (except by a KTM 200XC).

    Great, thanks!

    Stock settings

    I thought I posted this earlier but can't find it. I've got a 2006 Husky TE250 I'm working on for a friend and don't have the manual. Anyone know the factory jetting specs? -Pilot jet -Main jet -needle clip position -fuel screw

    2006 TE250 Jetting Specs

    I can't remember the jets currently in the bike, but I've got the jetting dialed in. The bike was previously jetted by a mechanic (and not very well), and I already had to lean the pilot and richen the needle for the bike to start and run well. I just wanted to know the factory settings as a reference. I was going to post this in the Husky forum, but being a jetting question I figured the jetting forum would be the best place to start.

    2006 TE250 Jetting Specs

    Can anyone help?

    07 Wr250f

    Popping on deceleration is usually a too lean condition. I would put the 42 pilot back in and if that doesn't help try turning the fuel screw out 1/2 turn. I used to have a WR250F and went to a 45 pilot jet, which eliminated any bog on the bottom.

    Torque specs

    No, I was refering to the bolt on the shock where it attaches to the linkage.

    20mm vs 18mm offset

    Also take into account your shock's rider sag. If it turns worse with one of the fork offsets then try running more or less shock sag. The 2008 frame and shock angle is different than the 2006-2007s, so the changes to the fork offset may give different handling results.

    Great, thanks for the info enzwbeha. Can anyone provide me with the torque specs for the others? fork stubs (axle clamp bolts): Lower shock bolt:
