    Best trail bike for the Notthwest

    I have a crf250r. In your opinion would a 450x be better for the western oregon riding. I am thinking so.

    Street Legal 450

    I live in Oregon and we cant get a CRF450X street legal. Does anyone know if Honda possibly has a CRF450 -- like a DRZ400sm coming out sometime soon. hate to ride a Suzuki. Anyone know. Thanks

    My new '07 450X with pics

    nice 450. i have a great product idea. get the pro moto billet kickit kick stand. it hides muvh better and is light weight. little spendy but totally worth it.

    2007 CRF250R .....I need to know the GOOD and BAD

    buy it. its a great bike. just do your services and it will hold up fine. theres not a lot of dust in washington. so.. that helps i think. if someone stole my bike i would be looking to call up a couple of hard hittin brothers. with a pair of pliars, and a blow torch. thats just sickening.

    Engine builders: Help please

    it amazes me how much business we take from dealers and shops by going on this sight. it makes us regular white collar dudes look somewhat mechanical by tearing a bike down and asking questions on how to fix it up. genius place to go, just genius.

    cable lubing

    you could get the more detailed shop maunual. but yea do what your doing. it wont hurt anything. just remember this thought. watch what it looks like when you take something apart. never ever over tighten a screw or bolt period. and when you can buy a torqc wrench. you can pick them up for less then 75.00. make sure the wrench is in the parameters of the torqe levels of the bikes parts.

    POS won't start!

    just went through this. you had a piece of dirt or some kind of article in the pilot jet. always check that first for dirt.

    oil consumption question

    i replaced mine and did it dry. that is the best. you will hear different opinions on this.

    cable lubing

    its always messy. but you really need to take that whole thing apart top to bottom and learn how it works. you wont screw it up. in fact do the same with the whole bike. you will need to take it down to grease the bearings, in the swing arm and axles. its fun. and you will enjoy that part as much as riding. at least i do.
