  1. Did anyone see when bubba fell on the ground holding his ankle he just about rolled in front of Vuillemin as he was pulling off the track. Vuillemin's front tire just about hit bubbas head. That would have sucked getting run over while trying to get sympathy.
  2. This guy must not ride. Probable one of those guys that shines his bike twice a week just to hall it around in the back of his spotless 4x4 on the weekend & talk about how fast he is. studio65photos nice avatar
  3. Less than 100 but just a guess ( I know I need to get a hour meter). This is a theory of mine. The bike has not been ridden much in the last year(Injured son). It went several months between rides. I was thinking if the crank was in the TDC position during this long period of just setting this would allow the rod bearing to dry out enough for rust to set in. I know from experience that bearings will fail from lack of use. At least in electric motors that sit to long with out having there rotors turned every once in awhile. Anyone have a thought on this.
  4. Inspected the drained oil lots of metal flakes. Removed the oil filter & WOW!!! there was enough copper flakes to make a penny. I checked the flakes with a magnet & yes they where magnetic. So what do you thing? I thing complete bottom end.
  5. I started the oil draining & had to leave. I'll check to see what type of flakes are in the oil tonight. I'll cut the filter in half & inspect it too.
  6. Drained oil last night found metal flakes in the oil. I'm going to pull the left side cover off tonight. If the main is out how much movement of the the flywheel will I see (up & down side to side). Coolant level is fine.
  7. Who sales the hot rod kit? I think I'll be needing one soon.
  8. I know this is the 450 forum but you guys have helped me in the past with my 450 so I thought I would ask for some advice here also. My son's 05 crf 250 locked up this weekend. He was not over reving the motor & the oil showed to be in the middle of the dip stick. I think it's the main bearings but I'm not sure. The motor was locked up tight when he first pushed it up to the truck. But I put it in gear & rock it back & fourth & it loosed up enough to kick it over. It seem to kick fine but would not start at first then it started & ran for like 5 seconds then started pulling down & died.The motor was lock up tight again. Let it set about 5 minutes rocked it back fourth again it loosed up. Did the same thing again when I start it again. I got it to free up again but am afraid to start it any more until I find out whats going on.

  10. It was 1980 and my best friend Brian had just got a new DT 80. He invited me over to see it & see how long of a wheelie he could ride already. As this was a new bike & his parents did not want it broken so soon wheelie riding was strickly forbiden. So said wheelie riding was taking place in there hay barn out of mom & dad's eye sight. Brian showed me the bike & then we went straight to the barn so he could show off his wheelie skills. He pulls to the back of the barn & revs the bike and dumps the clutch riding a short wheelie, as he sees that I'm not that impressed he shuts the bike down & tries to pull another. THis time reving the bike even harder dumps the clutch & the bike stands straight up & down throwing Brian to the ground behind it. Only problem was that his jeans leg had got hung on the blinker. Since The bike had been reved to the moon it was moving forward at a good pace dragging Brian behind it. The bike & Brian go out the front doors of the barn in full view of both mom & dad. The wreck did not hurt him as bad as his mom & dad did.
  11. Is that Angel Fire in New Mexico.
  12. That's a one handed no footer nac-nac scrub, I do'em all the time usually followed up by a half flip head plant.
  13. I have the same problem with being vertically challenged and owning a SDG step seat. The seat is same as stock infront but taller in the back. Not really a problem once your on the bike but swinging a leg over the hump in the back kinda sucks when getting off & on the bike.
