    Help on a 2007

    I bent my right radiator and need to try and straighten it.Is there anyway someone with a 2007 could take a pic and post it.I need to see the correct gap between the header and radiator.I know this sounds dumb but i would like to straighten it out as well as i can and want it to look factory.thanks.The stock braces did a good job and i could have finished riding or finished a race.My radiator did a twist and i'm gonna take it to work and try to bend it out.It also bent one of the tabs in and messed some fins up but i'm not worried about those.

    Estimating Daily Caloric Energy Requirements

    Check this out. It's very informative to a person wanting to calculate calories. http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=121703981 Give it a read and check out the formula's listed. The Katch-Mcardle I'm told is the most accurate formula. For a quick check you can also use freedieting.com and fitnessfrog.com Both are good but fitnessfrog in my opinion tends to over estimate needs. A good calorie tracker is myfitnesspal.com. I use it and you can also get the app for your smartphone.
  3. I've seen a few bikes on here with this setup. Could someone who has done the mod or knows someone who has be so kind and explain what needs done with maybe a picture or 2? Is it a simple bolt on or do you need to modify the RMZ fender? Since I've decided to pass on getting new wheels for now I might as well buy a new fender and make it look like a updated bike.
  4. I started this same thread on the suzuki 2 stroke forum. Just curious if anyone has used this company to re-do the stock excels on their bike? They have a racer package that includes anodizing the stock wheels to your color of choice, turning down and polishing the stock hubs, then relacing and truing the wheel. Cost is 500.00 plus shipping. Seems like a good deal if your stockers aren't beat up.

    New to me 05 RM 250....

    That's a nice bike. I picked up an 06 last summer. Just now tossing some parts on it. It's bone stock and low hours. Fun bike to ride for sure.

    RM 250's with the RMZ front fender and number plate?

    Thanks for the reply. I did a search(what I should have done first) and found what I needed. Sounds like it bolts on with the exception of drilling out 2 holes. Ordering today.

    TCR wheel building and anodizing?

    Haven't been on this site in a while. Finally getting ready to tear into the RM250 I bought. Really wanting to get some black or gold wheels on the bike after I get the frame powdercoated. Just curious if anyone has ever used the mentioned company? They have a racer package where they anodize your stock wheels(your choice of color), turn down and polish the stock hubs, then lace up the wheel. Runs about 500.00 plus what it cost to ship there and back. Seem's like a really good price when you look at some of the high end complete wheel and hub sets. I know I've read some good things about them on a few magazine sites but wanted to ask on here to see if anyone has had any work done by them. Thanks

    TCR wheel building and anodizing?

    I appreciate the replies. I don't consider the factory wheels and hubs inferior. I just can't justify spending 2grand on wheels and hubs when I only paid 2 grand for the bike. I'm not trying to bling it out either. Just going for a certain look that I have in mind. Too be honest after doing some research I'm almost convinced to leave the stockers on for now and just put that money in the engine.

    TCR wheel building and anodizing?

    Could you send me a link to the Rad MFG wheel sets on ebay. I've looked for them and can't find them.

    Mounting tires on black wheels

    http://stubbytiretools.com/Stubby-Pro-Gray-Grip-Set-ST-10200G.htm Use should try a set of these and let us know how they work out. I'm fixing to get black or gold excels on a project I'm starting and will be ordering a set of these. I'm usually pretty careful but even the best tire changer is going to slip once or twice and scratch a rim.

    No motivation to do cardio!

    I agree if can really hit but it also seems different for everyone who takes it. I don't ever energy nosedive on it. I've never crashed on it like if I were to drink too much coffee. I've checked my beats per minute off it and on it during a workout and didn't seem to be much different. USPlabs doesn't add filler to the products they make and its up to the user on how much he takes. Just saying.
  14. See if I can get these pictures to work. picked this up 3-6-12. Really like it so far. 2012 XLT Offroad package.

    No motivation to do cardio!

    You ever try some pre-workout supplements? USPlabs makes a product called Jack3d that works pretty good. I wouldn't recommend it to young kids or anything but I will definately get you in the mood to put in a hard workout.

    02 rm250 powder coating

    I've seen black, gun metal grey, yellow,and even white done on them. The first 3 look good but its all in exactly what colors you get. What surprised me was the all white framed RM250. It actually looked really good. I think someone on this board did it up like that. I'm really leaning towards gun metal grey. I really dig the clean stock look.

    That is a sweet build. Can't wait to see finished pics. I'm fixing to start on my 06 250. Will be doing something similiar.

    sore calf and numb foot

    are you warming up and then stretching before you start your workout? Seems to help me the most. Also, plushpuppy mentioned the new shoes before I could recommend you loosen the shoelaces on the new ones. Good luck and let us know what you find out when you go to the doc.

    My 03 RM250 ultimate woods racer build- lots of pics

    Did you lace the rims up yourself? Just curious about the color of wheel you got. I'm looking for some that are just like it. The place I order from has gold and yellow excels. I'm not too sure on the difference.

    American truck

    Had the same problem on my 2000 F150 4.6ltre. 1 coil started missing and it gave the feeling that it was shuddering. Usually could only tell while going uphill. Bought the entire set of coil packs off ebay for the same price as you and just replaced them all. Probably going to upgrade the truck next year. Leaning towards a new dodge or GMC.

    Riding Today, Sand Track in Georgia.

    Looks like a nice track. Thats a great idea with the direction markers. Wished more places would do it.

    This build is going to be sweet! I wish more folks would post this stuff on here. This winter, I'll be putting up a few of my own.

    Time to upgrade?

    All depends on if its WORTH it to you. You could make your bike more trail worthy or upgrade to something that bonestock likely has better suspension and power. Maybe you should ask your buddies to swap bikes with you for an hour or so and then hop back on the suzuki and see if it feels like a better bike??? Something to keep in mind also is that if you dump a grand into this bike you won't get it back if you decide to sale it off. You should at least do some shopping and see what kind of bikes are in your price range.

    That is a nice buildup. I just picked up an 06 end of the summer. Going to be doing something similiar but for MX sometime this winter. As I get the funds and can keep my wife from noticing. LOL
