  1. I have an '06 CRF 250R.
  2. Are these worth installing to handle the lag problem or should I save the $80 and just send my carb out to get worked over? Help... Thanks!
  3. Nice! That is a good idea. I ended up finding an upholstery shop that dealt it up for me at no charge. They did however, ask me not to tell anyone who did it. Go figure. Anyway, seats rocking and so is the ride! Adam
  4. I think I am seeing a trend here... I just checked my valves for the firs time tonight. My motor has roughly 3 hours on it. My intake valves are sitting at .005 and .004, however my exhaust valves are at about .008 - .009. From the looks of this post and others, it seems that many of us are finding our 06 exhaust clearance to be less than the advertised .011. Is this cause for concern or can it be left alone with out causing damage? Thanks in advance for any advice. Adam P.
  5. I am about 160 and my 250 is great. I do feel a slight lack in power in certain spots on the track, but I am sure I can tune that out. A 450 for my body weight and skill level would be over kill.
  6. Wheelz, Thanks, I will give that a whirl. Anyone else done this to their rides? Thanks!
  7. I recently purchased a new FX gripper seat cover. I removed the OEM Honda cover and noticed they used .25 inch staples. While attempting to install the new one I am running into an issue driving the staples through the plastic. Any suggestions? Neumatic? Longer Staple? Thanks!
  8. What did that kit run you? Did you get it online or from your LBS? Adam
  9. Is anyone running the AMSOIL or Team Honda Woody graphics kit? If so please post pics and where I can should look to purchase them from. Thanks!
  10. i have an '06 with some intentional markings on it as well. Anyone... Anyone...
  11. I did my first ride oil change this weekend... After much research and much debate I decided to roll with AMSOIL 10w-40. I have been a fan of Mobile 1 for years. I has never failed me, however each product has its uses. I will likely stick with the HP4 in the tranny or just roll AMSOIL in both sides. Adam
  12. I live Raleigh near the airport. Both the track in Henderson (aka. NCMP and NC Motorsports Park) and the track in clayton (aka. NC MotoPark East) are nice. Adam P.
  13. Ok... So I washed the bike of the other week. In doing so, some spots have appeared on the aluminum. What could cause this? Simple green over spray? Is there a way to clean it up? Thanks!
  14. I have been riding out at MX Park East in Clayton. I went out to NCMP on Sunday for the first time. That place was really cool as well!
  15. I am looking into a set of grips... Any suggestions?
