    Crank siezed, Causes?

    Thanks for the help! We're gonna split the cases eather tonight or tomarrow and hopefully figure out the cause. The bike hasent been rebuilt before, so maybe it is just wore out. I was using a good brand name synthetic blend oil, 20W50(I belive) for it. what would be a better oil to run if thats the case? or what does everyone else run that may be a better choice for it? could this also be caused by something blocking the oil getting into it?
  2. My 2002 yz250f has a siezed rod to the crank. I've searched to try to find the answer to my question, but havent found exactly what I'm looking for. It's what could have possibly caused this to happen? so when we get the case split I know what we should look for so as to not rule anything out. I see this it a pretty uncommon problum with the 02's so I'm really curious as to why it could have possibly happend. The bike ran flawlessly before this too, changed the oil frequently, etc. and just all of a sudden, bam, seized right up, beats me
  3. That sounds like a good deal , let me talk it over with my bf, see what he thinks and I'll let ya know. I definatly don't wanna deal with jetting issues and all that while we're spose to be having fun, so I'm thinkin thats a good solution, just hope it passes that dang 94 db level.
  4. Thanks for the info., I will check to make sure nothings been removed then. Yes, Silver lake is an awsome place, its definatly one of my favorite places to ride . I can't wait to get back there, especially with the 250F, should be a blast riding up the dunes on it! Thanks again for the info!
  5. I was given/bought a stock WR pipe and silencer to use for trail riding when I bought my 02' YZ250F and I was curious as to if it will pass the sound test (I belive its eather 94 or 96 here in Michigan)? We're heading to the Silver Lake dunes here in a couple weeks and they're pretty strict with the sound levels so I don't wanna get all the way over there to find I cant even ride. The people we bought the bike from were pretty sure it should be legal,so i bought it off them, but I don't know if they've ever had to acctually try to pass the test before. So if any one has any info. it would be greatly appriciated

    Levers for small hands

    I have very small hands too (My gloves are kids large, lol) and giving the cable some slack worked for me. I use the regular size levers now. I tried some smaller MSR ones before and it didnt really make much difference (for me anyway). But yes adjusting and making the lever easier to pull in helped ALOT.

    Hi Girls!

    I had fun on my smoker, still debating whether to keep it around just to get my 2 stroke fix once in a while, lol. but I like the 250f alot better, so I think I'm pretty much gonna stay with that from now on, not that I don't love the smell of pre-mix in the morning, man I'm gonna miss that, lol. Thanks for all the welcomes!
