    2012 keeps popping spark plug wire off

    i've never had the cover off but i was thinking about that and checked it out. the gasket seemed dry and when i was watching it run, i didn't see any signs of leaking.btw, thanks for everyones ideas

    2012 keeps popping spark plug wire off

    so i took the plug out tonight and everything is fine with that. it was tight, there are no cracks, color looks good and no signs of blow by. i played around with it inside the boot and it snapped in tight and stayed on very good. i put it back together and ran it on a stand, i couldn't make it come off by just running it.

    what do you do about it?
  8. my wife just got a brand new 2012 crf250r and the spark plug wire keeps popping off. i've put it on and felt it snap on very good, then rode 5 mins, bike dies and its back off. the bike has 4.5hrs and the wire has came off at least 10 times. there is nothing pulling on it, its hard to pull off and it seems to seal well to the valve cover. i used zip ties straped across the top of the valve cover to hold it on and it will stay running but when i check it's unsnapped from the plug! any ideas?

    Race gas destroying rings or blowing up motor?

    some oxy race fuels are highly corrosive and can cause damage if not drained from the system after use.

    Athena Cylinder Problem

    the base gasket that came with my athena leaked bad. the crush zone on the gasket wasn't lined up wih the coolant hole at all. i put a honda gasket on and it was good to go. i don't know what to say about the cylinder, nicacil is pretty tough stuff so i doubt it is hurt.

    Quiet pipes

    that's great to hear, are they using the same core as john@venom? i'd love to see all exhaust end up that quiet, it would do alot to save our sport.

    how to straighten stock triple clamps?

    it's not common to "bend' them, they usually just twist the tubes in the clamps. when you loosen the clamps, the tubes staighten right out, retighten the clamps and problem solved.

    My next project

    one big gain would be not putting fmf exhaust on it. they do more r&d on t shirts than they do with exhaust. mega bomb, what a joke! but should be a good runner with whatever exhaust you choose. btw you'll be closer to 14:1 w/ that crank and piston

    tweeked bars

    the clamp just looks bent, if it doesn't pop up staight when you loosen the clamp, then you need to loosen the nut that holds the clamp onto the bike. i should mention that when i say loosen, i mean loosen until it staightens out then retighten them. i'm just making sure that's clear, not saying your dumb or anything like that.
