    Electrical trouble

    Also for easy reference, Pins A and B are connect the coil plug to the main harness. Pin C is what the top of the plug makes contact with.

    Electrical trouble

    Hey guys, Recently stumbled into an issue where my 2006 CRF250R will not start. I completely rebuilt the carb and ap diaphragm yesterday thinking my hard to start/erratic idle issue was carb related. However, this symptom started 4 weeks ago and came out of nowhere. But I thought what the hell, rebuild the carb. Can’t hurt. Needless to say, threw it back together and same symptoms. It will bump start, but has an idle that sounds like it’s loading up and is slightly erratic, and it now cuts out when getting on the throttle hard. I’ve checked every connector for continuity. They checked out fine. I checked the blue/yellow and green/white wires going to the stator, got 254-259 ohms. From what I’ve read from on older posts here, north of 250 is good. Likewise, got 17.4-18.3 ohms out of the blue and white wires going to the ignition pulse generator near the stator. North of 17 should be good from the same thread referenced above. Checked the resistance between pins A-B in the ignition coil plug, got .2 ohms. Tolerance is .07-.1. Resistance between pins A-C are within spec. Could this cause my issue? I’ve eliminated the kill switch, and have triple checked valve clearances and timing. I get a bright spark at the plug, but I have some electrical gremlin I can’t find. I don’t have the peak voltage tester either to check everything else referenced in the manual. Any thoughts on anything else I could be over looking? Any and all help is greatly appreciated!!

    Tusk Air Filter

    I’ve been using 1-2 in my rotation for about a year now. They’re a great filter. Mine are a little smaller than OEM, but it doesn’t bother me since it makes it easier at sliding the filter and cage into/out of the air box. This is for my CRF250R.
  4. So lately I’ve been using a Garmin vivosport 3 activity tracker and love it! I wear it all the time, and for everything I do including riding. It’s small, light, and Garmins connect and connect IQ app are awesome. However, I started doing more research and noticed that some of garmins older watches had an auto lap function by GPS position. I did some searching and could only come up with threads from a few years ago. I tried posting this in the health and fitness forum and, surprisingly, got no responses. So my question is, what are y’all using for heart rate and auto tracking lap times at the track? Bar mounted watches? Wrist mounted watches? Dedicated bicycle GPS in the air box? Watch and chest strap HR combo? I would like to stick with Garmin but am open to other brands and suggestions as well! Cheers guys!

    Riding after topend rebuild

    You will get different opinions and methods On break in procedures. I just recently rebuilt the top end on my CRF and here is what I did: Always let the bike fully warm up. A good indicator is that you can feel the hot rads through your gloves. This is always key! 1) 10 minute easy break in ride. Varying loads and running a gear high. Under 1/2 throttle. Edit: let the bike fully cool down between all of these steps. 2) another 5-10 minute break in, varying loads running a gear high. 1/2-3/4 throttle. Do an oil/filter change. 3) went to the track and ran very easy laps for the first session. 4) let her eat after the first session! Change oil/filter again. Then use your preferred oil/filter change intervals.

    Difference in plastic companies

    I’ve been drooling over those since I first saw them! Wish I could pull the trigger, but for now I’m gunna make carb’ed 250fs great again lol But yeah the racer x CRF and yours are what is driving this look I want

    Difference in plastic companies

    Yes! I saw that surfing racer x the other day. Minus the backgrounds, the red plastic color scheme is what I’m after. The last thing I am having a hard time finding is the front disc cover. Black or red would be suitable there I would imagine

    Difference in plastic companies

    Thanks for the input fellas. I do race, but run the typical black background with white numbers just because that’s what 125s did/250fs do. I figured that the color would differ between companies. Just needed some real world advice. I wasn’t totally convinced by pictures on RMATVMC Did some searching and was hoping that acerbis made a red plate for the 09 250f (similar frame/plastics) but they don’t. They do make one for the ‘10 though. I did some research and found a thread that a guy did on here about the modification I would need to do in order for it to fit. If I go that route, id imagine I should pick up the ‘10 front fender too so it blends better.
  10. Hey guys, Been searching around to update the look of my 06 CRF250. My goal is to imitate the 2018 CRF but with a red front plate, however I can’t seem to find one company (acerbis, cycra, polisport, ufo) that makes all number plates, shrouds, fenders, and fork guards in red. For example, I can find fenders, side plates, shrouds, and fork guards in red from acerbis, but the only red front number plate is from cycra. So my question is, how much does the “color red” vary from each company? Or is red, red? Lol. Edit: I would like to hear from all bike owners, not just Honda guys if you have mixed plastic companies before!

    What gear do I need?

    Would definitely spend the money on boots/helmet/knee braces. Gaerne sg-10s will be about $400 but well worth it. I have heard good things about their g-react boot which is a cheaper alternative. Bell Mx-9 with mips is about $160. Try to get a helmet with mips if you can. Evs rs-9 knee braces are maybe $200 for a put I think? Depending on your sizing, you may be able to find all of this on clearance somewhere. These are all what I wear, but I’m mainly a track rider so your needs might differ and change as you find different types of riding and get faster. Edit: you can find plenty of good gear combos (Jersey/pant/gloves) for sub $100 on Motorsport right now.

    Kx125 front wheel to cr125??

    Hey guys, I bought a 2003 cr125 and have slowly been fixing it up since Christmas. When I bought it I noticed the front wheel has a wobble to it, and I'm afraid the spokes are seized to the nipples. While I could rebuild it, a buddy of mine has a 2003-04 kx125 front rim he is willing to give me for free. It's straight, good condition, etc. Question is, will it be a direct bolt on? Or will I have to source kx spacers and brake components as well?? Here is a picture of the bike when I bought it Since then it has gotten new plastics, suspension rebuild front/rear, new linkage/swingarm bearings, and some other small things. I'll have to take a picture of what it looks like now to post up!

    Jumping

    You just have to do it again. Obviously take your time and when you are feeling it at the track that day, don't think about it and pull the trigger. If you aren't feeling it, don't push it. That's how you get hurt. I had crash where I flipped over the bars and landed on my back on the landing face. Flipped in mid air. Took me a long time to get comfortable again. It's all mental. Once you get over it and stomp a jump like you used to, it will be like a weight has been lifted. Hope this helps!
  14. The SG-10s are a great option. I bought a pair last year and they were my first hinged/mid-high level boot and I won't go back to anything else. I was rocking tech3s before. As for braces, I bought a pair of EVS RS-9s. I had a crashed that caused my knee to swell up about twice it's size and decided it was time to buy some. The RS-9s, I think, are a decent entry level brace. I think they are about $200 for a pair
  15. If you tighten the bolt down, and it never gets tight and just keeps spinning, then the threads are stripped in the housing. The bolt will feel like it's trying to grab, then break free and start spinning again.
