    CRF50 Valve Adjustment

    Thanks, the intake was slightly tight so I adjusted. Still cant get the bike to run right tho.
  2. Looking to check and adjust my son's CRF50 valves. Not sure exactly where to put the feeler gauge. Can someone show me where in the pic below? Does this look normal?
  3. Maybe I damaged a jet when running wire through them?
  4. So I cleaned the carb on my son's CRF50 because it was running poorly. To run the air screw had to be all the way in and at full throttle it broke up. So I figured the pilot was clogged. I soaked the carb and cleaned it out very thoroughly. Put it back together and it idles horrible and revs worse...air screw at 1.5 turns....to run it's "best". Any clue?

    CRF50 Pilot Jet Question

    If the Pine Sol fails I am thinking of ordering this and keeping my fingers crossed. https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Carburetor-Honda-Crf50-Z50RStock/dp/B00MHW1CDS/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8
  6. My son has a 04 CRF50 that has had issues with the carb. Earlier in the year the air screw would have to be almost all the way in in order for it to run good. Then it started to beak up anything past half throttle. So I took it apart to clean it and it is now running worse. I took out all parts and sprayed carb cleaner through everything. Took apart every thing that comes apart and sprayed. Ran a wire from a wire brush through everything I could. Put it back together and now it barely stays running when I have the throttle all the way open. So I assume there is an issue with the pilot jet. I cannot get the wire through the jet from the bottom (bowl end). It goes in like a mm or two and stops. I spray carb cleaner in through where the air screw goes and it will come out the pilot jet at the bottom as well on the hole on the side of the carb. So there is some flow just not enough to get a wire through the bottom side of the pilot jet. Last night I tried boiling the carb (taken apart) in water with some Dawn. I still cannot get a wire through the bottom of the pilot jet. I did a search through multple threads for hours and some people have used a lighter...which I also tried and failed. Some have used Pine Sol ....which is what I may try next. I guess I am asking #1 SHOULD I BE ABLE TO GET A WIRE THROUGH THE BOTTOM OF THE PILOT JET? and #2 Are there any other tricks or is there anything I am missing? I mean these carbs are very basic so there isnt much to them,

    2017-2018 TC250 Premix

    So I picked up 10 gallons of Renegade Pro 100+ and went to get Bell Ray HR1 but they were out of it. Owner of the shop (husky shop) gave me a bottle of Amsoil Saber and told me to mix at 60:1 and it should be fine. Got home and looked it up and it seems like this is Amsoil version made for lawn equipment....
  8. Just wondering what premix everyone is running in their TC250. I am just getting back into the 2-stroke game and need to pick up more gas and premix. I have a 2018 TC250 and the previous owner used VP VPR mixes with Bellray HR1 60:1. He gave me a 5 gallon jug and it seemed to run great. So what is everyone else running? Is Bellray a solid premix?
  9. Anyone switch from a 450 to a 2017 or newer TC250 or 250SX? I have a 08 CRF450 I like a lot but since the new Husky/KTM redesign in 2017 I have been thinking of making the switch back to 2 strokes. I am 37 with 2 kids and mainly ride at practice tracks and maybe one race a year...so I dont ride competitive but love ripping on tracks. So I was looking for some feedback/input from anyone who rode a new Husky/KTM.
  10. Let me start off saying I LOVE my 08 CRF450. It performs close to flawless...is in like new condition...zero complaints. So no real reason to replace it. With all the updates to the new Husky TC250 and KTM 250SX I am considering making the switch back to 2strokes. Just trying to gauge if I am just hyping myself up a bit over the new 2strokes or if it is worth considerong selling the 450 and picking up a new TC250. I mainly just ride on practice tracks for fun. I dont race serious and may run 1-2 per year. Just want to get some thoughts or if anyone already switched to a new 2stroke. I know it's a bit easy to hype yourself up when you want something.
  11. I just bought and put together a Haul Master (Harbor Freight) 4x8 folding trailer. Right now it only has a plywood deck on it. I want to build wall/sides for it and wanted to see what everyones setup looks like for ideas. I am going to be hauling two bikes with it so I want to mount some eye bolts on the outside of the trailer so I have a better angle for tie downs. So my walls will have to have a space between the wall boards for the tie downs to feed through. So if you have a utility trailer please post up your setup ideas will be appreciated. This is what it looks like all folded up

    Pics of Your 450....

    Pics of my 04...Sad to say it is FOR SALE
  13. I just picked up a 08 CRF450 that is basically bone stock. I wanted to get a nice graphics kit for it and I like the new Troy Lee Lucas kit a lot…mainly because it has blue and looks a little retro. I found a good deal on ebay but it notes “Pictures are for reference only”. The bike pictured is the new style so I wanted to see a pic of the actual kit on a 05-08. So if anyone can post up a pic I would appreciate it, I searched the internet and couldn’t actually find the 2011 Lucas kit on a 05-08. The pic below is the kit I am looking at but on a 2011. Also if anyone has any other kits that look good feel free to post them up too.

    Rotella = false nuetrals?

    Is this just a Suzuki thing? I run the same oil he did in my CRF450 and have had zero problems?
