    95 xr250r clutch reinstall

    Upon reexamining, i realized that I had installed the clutch with the bolts too loose, and with components in the wrong order. Also i didnt really understand how the clutch worked and thought it was a bad thing that i was able to shift gears without engaging the lever while the bike was sitting.

    95 xr250r clutch reinstall

    Hey all, Recently replaced the cam chain on my XR, but now i am having a problem with reassembling the right side cover and clutch, this is my first time disassembling the right side of the bike. I know the service manual says 6-9 ft-lb on the clutch bolts, but when i tighten to that amount, it engages it to the point that i can shift gears without doing anything else. So i back out the clutch bolts until i can’t shift gears freely anymore, but now i can’t reinstall the side cover as the clutch sticks out too far. Also the lifter plate is fully brought back. The Manual also says to replace the springs if shorter than a specified length, and all mine are longer than that length. Is there something fundamental i’m overlooking here? are my springs too long? i think the springs are oem.

    FMF Muffler on Pre 96 XR250

    Hey all, ive been upgrading my 1995 XR250R and have come across many people using this FMF Muffler: http://www.fmfracing.com/Product/ProductDetail?CategoryID=42&BikeType=MX%2FOFFROAD&BikeMake=HONDA&BikeModel=XR250R&imaConfig=Single&ParentCategoryID=31&Priority=13 Has anybody here fit one of these on a 1995 or other pre 96 XR? If not what kind of good aftermarket muffler works with the 1995? Thanks and cheers
