    Foresthill camping experience

    If you are referring to Sugar Pine lake camp grounds, no you cant ride to the trails from there. A little ways past Parker Flat is Morning Star Lake. We have camped there and then rode to the trails. We always stay in one of the first couple of sites that are closest to the entrance and closest to the trails. They get pissed if you stay deep in the camp ground sites and ride out.

    Northern CA guys, looking for tour guide

    Rode the Rubicon Once on a old 86 XR 250X....Never again. Still, its a bucket list thing that everyone should try once.

    2004 crf250x stage one hot cam valve clearance

    Great point. If you set you clearance at .012 & .028 INCHES instead of MILLIMETERS, theres your problem.

    I contacted Hot Cams about their specs. Here is their answer. Our specs may be different than Honda’s. Our specs are Intake .12mm and Exhaust .28mm. Thats double OEM!

    2004 crf250x stage one hot cam valve clearance

    Great boost in the low to mid range. Top end is about the same. I rarely hit the limiter as I prefer to ride the slow tight nasty single track stuff so the top end was not a big deal for me. A lot of people go with the 05 R cam as it is a straight drop in with out having to change springs for our bike years. With the R cam you lose bottom end and gain mid to top. The stage II cam is like the R cam. All depends where you want the power.

    I have the Stage 1 in my 06 X. I just dropped it in and checked it for spec using the stock clearances. Runs great with no problems at all.

    Honda 2005 CRF250X failed Cam Chain Tensioner

    I have not read anywhere about a tensioner failure. I'd go with OEM. With a manual, it seems you would have to adjust it as the chain wears. there are "special tools" out there to hold the OEM unit but I just use a standard screwdriver and locking pliers to hold it while working on the top end.

    2005 CRF250X Carburetor Problems

    You may have dropped a jet. Meaning that the pilot or main have backed out partialy or completely fallen out. Just a thought as you mentioned that a shop did some jet work. It happened to me. You will know as soon as you take the bowl off. Good luck.
