    Lectrons worth it on YZ250s?

    What mileage did you get on the same terrain with a well setup PWK? I believe those metering needle carbs are efficient but mileage numbers are relative to usage pattern. About 40 miles/tank.

    Lectrons worth it on YZ250s?

    I run one on my YZ and have been happy with it. Best perk is I can get 70 miles out of the stock tank.

    Ohlins TTX Suspension


    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    I have a set of used Ohlins TTX fork cartridges and a TTX shock off of my 2007 Yamaha YZ250. Per the box the cartridges are intended for the YZ250F but will fit the YZ and should also fit the WR. There are some vice grip marks on some of the fork internals courtesy of a local suspension shop service as shown in the pictures. Asking $1200 shipped CON US

    Motorcycle Suspension Tuners: Stillwell or LT?

    Another vote for LTR. I had him do my Husky years ago and just had him do my YZ. When I dropped my stuff off he was just getting back to work from knee surgery and said it would be a few weeks until he could get to it. When I told him I was leaving for Moab the next week he hustled and got it all done in time.

    Muddy radiators

    For really muddy races I'll put panty hose over the louvers. That keeps the mud from building up on the radiators and the heat off the motor/radiators will generally dry the mud enough so it just falls off.

    Picture Tread! Where did you all ride this weekend?

    That bridge was out last summer too. I reported it on the Cle Elum Rangers site but looks like they haven't gotten to it yet.

    Are you afraid?

    Had a similar experience going the other way. Going uphill in the snow and the front tire hit a rock and took a bad bounce, one of those little cedar trees caught the bike. That's when I looked around and realized how dumb we were being. Now I stick to the other side of the mountain.

    Minor fiddling with the metering rod and power jet on initial setup, then nothing.

    Anyone run a lectron on there yz250?

    I have one on my '07 250 as well as my Husky 125 and am a fan. On the YZ I had to remove the reed cage spacer and the airboot touches the shock spring, but isn't actually wearing through. I've ridden from sea level to 7k ft with no need for adjustment, and with the stock tank I can go 65-70 miles.

    Embarrassing post. Update...

    Did the exact same thing a few months ago. Tried pull starting it with the truck. Swapped the plug multiple times. Went to pull the carb and found the paper towel.

    CLe Elum ORV Park Ride 6/17-6/18

    We managed 43 miles last weekend Jeff. Started out on North Ridge but ran into snow 4.5 miles in. Re-staged at Woods and Steele and managed to do a good loop without encountering any snow or downed trees.

    Who rebuilds dirtbikes in the PNW?

    I had the same thing happen to my Husky. I tried the heli-coil fix, but it came out the first time I removed the drain plug. I ended up making an extension out of some aluminum round stock with internal threads for the drain plug and welding that to the bottom of the case.

  25. I've been running a Lectron on my 07 YZ for about 3 years now. Stock I could squeeze 40 miles out of a tank. With the Lectron I've done 65 miles on the stock tank. The biggest hassle I had when installing was getting the right throttle cable, the one they sent me was 6-8" too long. Other then that I made 1/2 turn adjustment on the metering rod and haven't touched it yet, ride from sea level-7k ft with no issues.
