  1. Hey Karl, Are those FLU graphics from motosport.com? If so how are they? It looks like the seat cover is because I put the same seat cover on my RM and it looks the same way like crap lol. I think the graphics look really good though.
  2. I personally think Nike would make some cool gear. I mean look at the Jordan superbike team, their leathers are the coolest around. Plus you may see some more tv commercials on during good shows instead of just during motocross, supercross and the x games.
  3. I ride an rm250 and I recently rode my buddies 250f for the first time. The biggest differance is the way the powerbands come in. If your used to just wacking the throttle on the 250f then you may want to not do that on the 2smoke or else you will loop it lol. Maybe thats just the way my 2smoker handles but you cant just wack the throttle anytime you want to. Just ease into the throttle and youll get used to it.
  4. I would take the carb off and make sure the throttle isnt stuck. Thats what it sounds like to me.
  5. Im with drzdual, what about rims? Would it mess up the threads for the spokes?
  6. I go with Klotz gear oil, I personally think all thier products are awesome. My friend I ride with makes fun of me because I run expensive oil in my bike but guess who has two different bikes and both now have trany problems? Its not me lol.
  7. If you get a top end kit and do it yourself, make sure you get a good gasket set. I orderd a top end kit from midwestactioncycles.com and it came with cosmetic gaskets. I didnt have any luck with them at all, they leaked coolent around the head. I replaced them with Moose gaskets and didnt have a problem.
  8. Thats nothing, some guy i work with cut out a fake boardwalk McDonalds game piece and put it on Ebay. It said that it was only a cut out piece and was not real, some guy paid $100 for it.
  9. Dont forget to adjust the air screw. Start at 1.5 turns out and go from there. Below is a link that explains everything you need to know on how to jet a 2 stroke. http://pingertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=528
  10. Thanks.
  11. Does anyone know what size the stock main and piolet jets are for a 98 kx250?
  12. There are alot of problems with those bikes. My wifes uncle has one and he is always working on it. The CDI boxes always go out, the cranks go out of true fairly often, and sometimes on his bike if you turn off the key the bike will still be running and you have to stall it to turn it off. They are pretty fast, i rode it once but didnt go to fast the front end didnt feel stable at all. If you live in a humid climate forget about it, his also doesnt run for anything if its humid. Its going to be pretty hard to be an inline four, my cbr600 would go 80 mph in first gear.
  13. Take the cover off and replace the gasket.
  14. Thats what i did when i found an 05 rm250 for $3200. It had brand new tires on it, full FMF SST exhaust, pro taper triple clamp and fat bars, and a new graphic kit. I put a new top end in it right away just to be on the safe side.
  15. It could be anything, crank, crank bearings just take off the cylinder and see. Also i was always told that you really want more than 170lbs of compression on a 250.
