    Crank halves are a different color? Unusual?

    The one on the left looks exactly like my dining table. All I can think is it got really hot on one side more than the other. I’ve never seen that before though

    1998 XR250R blowing thick blue oil smoke

    Light blue is common for oil in the fuel. Did you possibly burn the piston? Maybe a valve seat broke? Check the filters (2) for metal

    What carb rebuild kit is best ??

    My xr400R just got a rebuild from like 10 different other bikes. I found factory carbs to be the best.
  8. Yep. You shoved oil into the head too fast. Now it’s in the valves and TRUST ME. ITS NOT PRETTY. Take the head apart, clean it, and post picture. We’ll say if it’s still good. As long as there’s no cracks.

    Jmarts bike is slow

    But how much torque do they have? Horsepower is only a theoretical number based off torque in order to sell cars. Torque•rpm/5252=HP

    Is THIS why I need rim lock?

    Dude. The rocks are a total pain (yet fun) I always used to run a Kenda going through them. What's your front?

    rear axle nut too tight

    In case you didn't believe me… that's a structural engineering book.

    rear axle nut too tight

    Sure, it can. But a lot of tool Steel is austinetic and/or air hardened. You CAN weld it without killing the temper. I've done it myself. The hard part is knowing when you're getting it too hot and it starts to turn into just another nickel alloy. (still pretty damn strong) Now, if you take it to the melting point and cool it quickly or bend it significantly… you're gonna have a bad day.

    XR 400 Hi/Low Headlight

    I just did the same thing to my 2002 xr400r. Ended up just putting a mini light bar on it and using the power from the "hi" function on my street kit as an exciter wire. Simply: normal beam, normal light. "hi" beam= light bar.

    What cool things have you found on the trails?

    Don't underestimate an XR. I rode the hell out of mine. Then it was Sabatoged. Just a good reason to rebuild and make a sleeper. Lol.
