  1. I was wondering if anybody has used 2.5wt fork oil in xr250 96>, And how did it perform. I'm thinking of using it but a little worried about the rebound being to fast. Cheers
  2. I have a 2000 xr250. I've learned stock oil is 5wt for both shock and forks. A fellow has given me advise to use 2.5wt in the shock to resist fade which i think i will do. The question is should i use 2.5wt in the forks as well as the shock to balance the suspension. I ride general off road and like softer but responsive suspension. Would this be a Decent setup? Cheers

    xr250 shock

    Thanks for that skipn8r. Now I've got a new question. Another fellow has given advise to use 2.5wt in the shock to resist fade. The question is should i use 2.5wt in the forks as well as the shock to balance the suspension. I've learned stock is 5wt for both.

    Ive found out from a friend that checking the valve to piston clearance will stop damage occurring. Does any body know how to do this? Same friend told me that the cam will be retarded about 2 degrees. Is this about right? and would it make the cam work higher in the rpm?

    Cam change

    Ive been looking at hotcams grind for my xr250 and would like to know how much difference it would make on a stocker with gordons mods. Also does any one know the stock cam specs as a comparison. Cheers
  10. I am interested to find out peoples thoughts on milling the cylinder head of a 2000 xr 250. Ive heard that 0.02 inch will be good for compression ratio of 11.2 - 1 with the standard piston and safe for operation with hi octane fuel. I would also like to know if any one else has done anything along these lines. Cheers.
