    Old man WR250Z 1995, rebuild, many questions

    No luck..... I had a 1993 wr250 and loved it. I though I had an extra manual, but I can not find it. Those bikes handle amazing and have a top speed that will blow mx bikes away.... some thing close to 80 mph.

    350SXF Neutral to First stall

    Regarding most bikes I have owned to avoid stalling.... start on stand shift to first. Shift to first - lift off stand while holding clutch..... mount and roost your friends. All brands and years have same issue.

    Chain is chewing up the mud flap

    Welcome to Honda 450 life ..... the DID narrow o-ring helps too.
  6. I am looking at the option of moving away from my full size Standard Wheel base Dodge van to a long bed Pick-up truck with a fiberglass or even a utility top - shell. I have seen on the web ... the ARE RT Tall Camper Shell but it looks like they are not making at more ... not on there web site at least. Any other ideas of suggestions? I am looking a long bed 2009 and up Ford F150 or any other long bed as the plat form.

    Chain is chewing up the mud flap

    2002 through 2008 CRF450R chains all hit the mud flap and the tire. Honda widened the gap in 2009. You can slow it down with TM Design guides and x-ring o-ring chain.

    Sputtering at balance point

    Like said above.... might be float level. My Drz has been there a few times and never sputtered. Also ride a "good" friends drz and see how different it runs at the balance point.

    2019 KX 450

    Sounds like Kawasaki did an awesome job building a bike for a broad range of riders.... I love that they returned to spring forks and added the easy to pull hydrolic clutch. The Crf450r clutch pull is deal killer.
