    Should I??

    Just a quick question for you guys. Should I get a 450 or stick with 250fs? I rode a buddy's Yam 05 450 last year and really liked it, I rode anothers Honda "Hated it do to his setup" As far as my background riding, 17 years racing never threw a leg over a 250 2 stroke just 125's and 250f's. When I Rode the Yam and Hon it was only for 2 laps on a very natural terrain track, no doubles, triples ect.. I weigh 165 and 5'9 height. I race the intermidate class and +30 class, I guess I'm just wondering about power delivery, handling, and such. Thanks

    Who won the 06 250 F Shootout ?

    I just switched to Yamaha's this year. Why?? Reliability!! I don't care what shootouts say. I have been on Kaws since 1986. Some good, Some Bad. 04' kx250F, 05kx250F REALLY BAD!! In 22 years of racing I have never DNF'D so many times in 2 seasons. With all the money I soaked into those piles, I could of put my kids through Yale!!! I'm glad I bought an 06' YZ. Hopefully next season I can finish every race, and not have to spend every waking moment in the garage working on a bike that I know will explode again. Wait till a Mag torcher tests the kx250f then we'll see what they have to say.

    Removing rear sprocket bolts...

    If the Bolt isn't to stripped, Use a impact and a hammer to shock the bolt loose. If you don't have an impact use your allen and a old extension and try giving it a few wacks. Hope this helps

    Oiling Air Filter Question

    What I've used for many years and had good luck with is Maxima FFT. I use a oiling tub and soak it good, and squeez out the excess oil, then stick the filters in a ziplock. Just a quick note, I seen a couple posts where some guys are using Notoil. A freind of mine swears by it and I wasn't buying it. We went to the practice track it was extreamly dusty all day. After riding we both checked our filters. You could of grown a garden on my filter and his was barely dirty. Same Track, Same Conditions. Which leads me to think where did the dirt go?? I'm not saying it's a bad product, maybe a magic oil that repels the dirt and dust off hmmm. Anyway just my 2cents on what I've seen. 06' YZ250F
