  1. I'll give Rick's a call. Dropping the HID for an LED is certainly an option if Rick's doesn't fit the 2k-2 and perhaps the cheapest. Of course upgrading to a 2k-3 or Trailtech 100w stator/flywheel is an option too...just pricier.
  2. Bump. Any ideas on this?
  3. 43.5 to 1. That's where the magic happens.
  4. I have an 07 250xcw. Love the bike and agree on riding a CR250. It went like a raped ape and the ergos just didn't feel right to me. Then again, what your used to is what usually feels the best.
  5. I'd bump to a 38 pilot jet as well. 40 may be too much.
  6. Hi guys. I have the following installed on my 2007 250 xcw: DDM HID 35w headlight: http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/DDM-HID-Kit-Slim-Ballast-35W-or-55W Trailtech Reg/Rec: http://www.trailtech.net/7004-rr150 Shorai 9ah battery: http://shoraipower.com/lfx09l2-bs12-p54 LED tailight: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/plt-li-1157w With this setup, the headlight will run for about 30-40 minutes (trail riding rpm's) before it starts blinking and then shuts off. I typically flip the handlebar switch for it off, let it charge for a while and flip it back on. Ideally, I'd like to run the HID continuously. There is only one lighting (yellow) wire coming of the 2k-2 stator and believe a second yellow is needed to run the HID full time. While a 2k-3 stator/flywheel is an option, does anyone know if this stator from Rick's would do the trick with my 2k-2? http://ricksmotorsportelectrics.com/part/21-0099H/MDdLdG0yNTBYQy1X
  7. Yikes! Do you think friction discs are the sole issue? Could you tell if the chatter was direcly from the clutch or is that the chain slapping?
  8. Installed a new Vertex piston / top end kit yesterday. R&R'd the powervalve too. Had to resort to bump starting but finally got the bike fired up. Felt compression on the kick starter was certainly higher. I didn't really want to wring it out yet but it does feels crisper at the throttle. The bike finally idles well now too With a new top end, clean carb/float level set and new reeds, I'm hoping a solid foundation is now there so that jetting changes can be made objectively.
  9. Gmoss: Is the short length the only issue with the standard MP cable or is the quality of the Honda cables better?
  10. At your weight, I'd be all over a 200
  11. 10-4 schmo. Thanks!
  12. Thanks guys! I had to heat the screws up plus use the impact driver but all 4 popped free. I like the idea of using Torx screws and will pick some up. Thanks again!
  13. Nice schmo! Let us know how the VF4 does. One may be in my near future too so will be curious to hear how it works for you.
  14. Any tricks to remove the two side plate screws that secure a side powervalve? I've tried a brass punch with hammer and am concerned about rapping the allen heads any harder or torquing on them further.
  15. Yes, probably should have left it as is but curiosity got the best of me.
