  1. Smear sticky grease on the crank. Gently rotate by hand.
  2. If all else fails you could try covering the crank in grease and rotating it by hand. There is a chance that the clip will stick to the grease. Messy, but worth a try.
  3. That plug is exactly what it is. Thank you very much for your help.
  4. This is a friends bike. What piece is missing? It was lost during a hare scramble. I believe the rider said there was some oil dripping out. My guess is that is an auto decompression release. I tried to look the part #'s up on bike bandit. Any info will be greatly appreciated. Update. I don't have a photobucket account so I could not attach a picture. It's located on the right side of the head directly above the exhaust pipe. It's a WR 450.
  5. I have been using gas, kero, and mineral spirits on my filters for more than 15 years. I've never had one come apart. I've also been using and will continue to use motor oil on my filters. Never had a motor destroy itself because of dirt. I had a 97 CR that I sold in 07 that still had the factory cross-hatches in the jug after 10 years. That bike never saw a drop of "filter" oil. Like a previous poster mentioned filter oil didn't exist 10 years ago.
  6. The lack of a linkage causes the toast bounce out of the toaster and onto the counter. Also, butter fouls the heating elements really easy.
  7. I think that aftermarket gas tanks are way overpriced. The dude that mentioned the RC airplane tanks had a great idea. I did a little searching on them and found several sizes and shapes that would probably fit. All the RC plane tanks are reasonable priced too. Another method that I'm also going to attempt is to fill the tank with boiling water and force maybe about 10psi of air into it until it cools. Maybe I can gain a couple of ounces that way. If I blow a hole in the tank then I will have an excuse to buy an aftermarket one. It's a win win situation. Cheers.
  8. I'm looking for an auxiliary fuel tank that fits behind the side panel of a KTM SX 250. I found one from Baja Designs that holds 1.2 gallons that is way too big. It only needs to hold about 24 O.Z. On certain tracks in D6 I can finish with about 16 O.Z. others I have too stop for fuel. Do any KTM's have a coolant tank that can be adapted? I really hate stopping for fuel when I'm in the heat of battle. I've heard of some racers on CRF 250's using them, but I can't find them anywhere. Let me know if you have any ideas.
  9. I've seen GNCC racers put the bike in neutral and hold the clutch in while the motor is still running. Then shut the motor off while holding the clutch in. This keeps the clutch plates from being suctioned together with oil making the bike easier to start when the green flag drops. I personally have never tried it.
  10. Whenever I had to tighten the bolts on my clutch, I just fed a rag into gears between the clutch basket and kick primary. Maybe the same method will work for you.
  11. Twice the weight. Twice the moving parts. Twice the maintenance. Twice the cost. Half the H.P. Yeah, you sold me.
  12. I plan on racing the Northeast Harescramble Series. I live about 10 minutes from Evansville and 30 from DMX. I haven't been at Evansville in about 10 years. I read somewhere that the track is about 7 miles long and includes the motocross track. I'm not really sure what kind of terrain it is though. Hopefully they will use barcodes like DMX. I will be racing in the Vet 201-open class because I got bumped out of C. Hopefully it will be a good time with some good competion.
  13. Yes, the will have barcodes.
  14. I'll be there. Last one of the year. The track was great last time with barcode scoring and all. I could do without the ruts though. They can be a disaster if you don't watch what you're doing. I just got done replacing swingarm and linkage bearings in my CR. I overshot a double and landed flat on the track. When it hit I heard a crunch, pop, and bang. The bearing came out in chunks. See you there.
  15. I think the conditions will be perfect. From what I remember there are some rocks, some high speed sections, tight woods, more rocks, a couple short steep hillclimbs that can be very challenging and a lot of fun thrown in between. I had blast at this event last year. See you there.
