    help identify this frame, hint....it isnt a 92 CR500

    Thanks for the input. Someone ground and restamped a vin on it. I took it back, just too sketchy. Back to the drawing board I guess.
  3. So I bought what was supposed to be a 2000 CR250 frame converted for a 500 engine. What I get when I run the vin is a 1992 CR500. Obviously something is amiss here. It doesnt have the black vin plate just stamped numbers and letters.I need to know for sure what gen Im dealing with before I start buying parts. Can any of you guys tell by looking at the frame what gen it is? Heres some pics and thanks. Incidentally if you guys have any parts to complete this build once we verify the year please PM me.
  4. Southern Oregon Grants Pass area. Thanks Shrub im not that big but I like bigger bikes in general.
  5. Thanks Sand. I just spent 15 min talking to the CP500 shop and he said basically the same thing. He said his tech who is 6'3 and 260 felt more comfy on the 450 but couldn't say why. Hopefully others that end up at this thread can make use of the info. Thanks again. Where are you in Oregon by the way?
  6. I hear ya. It was less of a CR500 post and more of a Thumper vs 2T chassis question. Im a member there and did my search but didn't find what I needed. I googled the question and it brought me here. Maybe you can tell me, is a 06 CR250 smaller than a 06 CRF450 in chassis and ride height?
  7. I have this exact question between the CR250 and the CRF450. How different are they in handling and size. Too bad no one answered this guy he spent a lot of time writing that post. No wonder he only has 2 posts, probably thought everyone were dicks for not helping him.

    Quick Valve adjustment help please.

    I just rescued this bike a couple weeks ago from some mentally challenged mid 20's wannabe mechanics. They were in the process of completely ruining the bike trying to figure out why it wouldn't run. Turned out to be a bad coil. Ive been fixing their fck ups since I got it. My CR500 has been on the same cylinder for 15 years and still runs strong, hopefully the TTR will be as reliable.

    Ya I got all that, I just like to be sure especially on a bike Im not familiar with. The cam mark helped a lot, It was the third mark on the flywheel with the cam straight up. Purrs like a kitten now. Thanks guys.

    Cam mark at 12 oclock, piston as high as it can go and the mark on the 3rd slash. That has to be right.

    It looks like its the 3rd mark of the three. It lines up perfectly with the cam mark at 12 oclock and my valves are really loose. I had it 180 deg off I think. Thanks again.

    Thanks for the input. Like I said Im pretty familiar with valve adjustments but it helps to know for sure what the TDC mark looks like and the manual is shiit for information. They say there should be a "T" mark for tdc on the flywheel but there isn't one. Both valves were super tight and definitely closed. Ill go out and recheck it with the cam cover off, that was a good idea.

    Idling issues

    A trick to clean the small orifices in the pilot jet is to use a bristle off of a wire brush to remove any obstacles. sometimes theres gunk there you cannot see.

    Quick Valve adjustment help please.

    Im usually pretty good at this stuff, Ive adjusted a lot of valves on different bikes. This one is concerning though. 03 TTR225 the manual says TDC is the .T There isn't one, instead theres a dot at about bottom center then a I--I I and the last mark seems to be TDC. I did some research and a few guys though the last one was TDC so I started to adjust there after watching the piston. The valves were really tight, extremely tight. The bike ran well before this and was pretty quiet. I needed to back the bolt off a lot, probably 8 turns at least. I set the intake at .08mm and the exh at .18 mm I think, whatever the manual said I set them 1mm looser than max. I fired it up and it idled fine but there was a remarkable amount of valve clatter. First thing I want to make sure is that I set it at the right mark. Which mark is TDC of the three? Second thing is the bike may have had really tight valves to begin with and maybe the bike is supposed to have that much valve rattle? I don't know. Is the bike supposed to have quiet valves when set right or am I way loose? Thanks for any input.
