    85sx fouling plugs

    I have an issue with my daughters 85 fouling plugs, ive had it rejetted, it goes like a cut cat when shes on the gas but as soon as she rides slow the plug dies. what would be some issues to start looking at that can cause this ?? The bike is well due for a piston and ring change. could this be it?? I mix 50:1 full synthetic Motul oil with 98 oct fuel. Pipe has just not long been repacked. Thanks in advance all..
  2. Hi all, My girl has broken the front master cylinder housing on her 06 230f, just wondering what others will bolt straight on...eg crf150r/f crf250r/x crf450r/x cr125 cr250 ??? Only asking as there is plenty of secondhand ones for sale for almost every crf beside 230. Thanks in advance all.

    Chinese CRF450X

    Sad but true.. Most major companys like honda, yamaha, hell even harley davidson have alot of their gear made in china. But in saying that the product/part still needs to meet a standard for the said company (honda and so on). But the China crap thats desighned, manufactured and build in china doesnt seem to have a quility standard. I worked for a company that made Harley wheels (mostly production wheels) here in Australia and the quality standards were amazing. Now those wheels will soon be getting made out of China and id imagine they would have to make/supply a wheel of the same quality standard. Bloody slave labour !!!!.

    FREE decomp shaft upgrade from honda ?

    Well after a hole pile of phone calls to Honda dealers and then honda Australia, looks like im getting the parts after all. I have replaced the shaft once already and the new replacement is still running a 3mm pin. the update shaft runs a 5mm pin so they seem to be happy to supply parts for free. The honda dealers had no idea about this update champaign which made things rather frustrating on my behalf and theirs..

    FREE decomp shaft upgrade from honda ?

    I spoke to the dealers here in Australia and got laughed at (Pricks!!!)
  8. Stumbled across some articals on the net which states honda knows of the decomp shaft issue with 08/09 450x's and have got an updated part for free replacement on effected models and will also compensate those that have had to pay for this repair. Has anyone else stumbled across this ?? Its states through honda america and im in australia so im going to chase it here if not i may have to chase it through honda america. I saved the pdf file that contains all the documentation. Whats your thoughts people ???

    Mods.. What now

    Suspension was the first thing that got done.. @ Krannie, i miss the 450R and just trying to get the most out of the X that i can, i know they are completly differant engines but basically an all rounder as i ride at so many differant places from dunes and sand style mx tracks to hard pack mild rocky trails.. i do hit the rev limiter very quick and often in the sand.. My old 03 450R was the best all rounder i had, im spewin i sold it now.
