  1. what octane are you running with that high comp piston?
  2. yeah the XR bikes are WAY heavier due to the different frame. for a first bike, the 230 WILL BE ENOUGH. it will last you a season or two, and then you can turn around and sell it for a good price and then get the 250X you'll be happier and safer this way.
  3. wow im putting my 230 up for sale this week too, and im buyin a 250X. our poor little 230's sure dont like being 10 feet in the air eh;)
  4. cutting the pink wire raises the rev limiter, but without doing any other mods you wont really be making any power up there anyways
  5. yeah information on aftermarket suggestions and past experience would be nice. so we can get a bit of fore sight on what to do WHEN the valves deciede they've had enough.
  6. yeah it sounds like you might be running lean. take the spark plug out and tell us which colour it is. it should be a mild tan colour.
  7. yeah but if that valve is leaking than thats what the leakdown test is'll hear air coming up and out through the intake/exaust. this is the whole point of doing a leakdown test.
  8. I believe the bike is set up for a 160 lbs rider, so a suspension set up will be in order.
  9. isn't your leg kind of in the way for that anyways? unless he has some sort of coathanger/bubble gum macgyver contraption that'll shut it off real easy....damn macgyver
