    steahly flywheel weight

    i got a 03 yz 250 that i am putting on a 13 oz steahly fww.it screws on in place of the stock nut on the crankshaft.it also has 4 set screws on the outside diameter that keep it from coming loose.the instructions provided does not recommend using loctite on the set screws.i called them and asked about using loctite on the set screws and the crank threads.they said no because it would be difficult to remove.i use loctite on a lot of fasteners with no problems removing them.i am thinking of torquing it on and marking the set screw locations.then remove and file small flats where the set screws are so it can not come loose even if the set screws loosen a bit .then reinstall with loctite on crank threads and loctite on set screws.i just dont want to have to check it often like the instructions say.i plan on leaving it on for good.anybody have any input on this? thanks

    Motorbikes vs animals what are your expiriences?

    i was on my cr 250 and realized too late i was about to collide with a kid on an atc 110 3 wheeler.the trails crossed at 90 degrees.i locked up brakes and slid side ways right into him. i flew over him and landed in a sticker patch.it hurt .the poor kid was crying and his headlight was dangling from the wire.he had a flat tire.my bike was ok.i limped home.i hope he made it home ok.i felt bad even though it was nobodys fault.

    YZ250 Timing Thread

    i have a 03 yz 250.i just got it used.i have rode it for about 1 hour and the jetting seemed a little rich with all the spooge on the swingarm but it ran ok.compression feels good,recent topend.plug was oily.i went ahead and checked my timing with my dial indicator.crank bearings felt tight! it was at .010 btdc.i adjusted it to .002 btdc for a smoother hit.i went to test ride and it fired right up.let it run with choke on for 20 seconds or so ,choke off and it bogs and dies.couldnt restart. i need to check plug.probably fouled.does jetting change with the timing mod?i need to pull carb and check jet sizes. thanks heath

    cam chain

    about 40 or so hours before mcct.not sure if guides are worn.have not looked yet.if i replace chain should i also replace sprockets?i was hoping someone with a pair of calipers could measure their new chain length of 15 links so i could get an idea of how bad it may be stretched.just looking for peace of mind.i know peace of mind would be a new chain but i am cheap and lazy! thanks

    cam chain

    i think i may have overtightened my mcct.i have rode the bike about 100 hours after i installed the TT mcct.i followed the written instructions(fingertight then 1\4 out).went to check it the other day and it went in another turn fingertight.the chain has stretched and or the guides are worn.did the rattle test with bike running and seems to be the same as finger tightening.how can i tell if the chain is stretched too much.can anybody tell me how long 15 links should measure.also if i replace chain should i replace sprockets? thanks for any help
