  1. Where are you guys ordering your jets from?
  2. I have ordered .45 Eibach Springs for my 2002 XR 250 R. I am going to try to tackle the job myself. I am going to order a shop manual and I was wondering if there are any special tools that I would need to replace the springs and seals? Also what is the stock oil level? How is that measured? What is the stock oil weight? Has anyone every put air valve on the top of the forks and pressurized them? Say 5-10psi? Thanks for the Help in Advance!
  3. I am a novice MX rider that enjoys both mild motocross tracks and mild trail riding. I am a 35 yr male weighing a stocky 250# with gear on. I am bottoming out the front forks on little 3-5 ft tabletop jumps. I love the the XR and do not want to trade it in on a CR. I have been considering re-springing the current XR Forks with .45kg Springs or higher springs. I was thinking to keep it on the softer side to save my aging body, but not so soft that is bottoms. As for Oil weight, I have no idea what I should do there. Then on the other hand I have been reading about how some have scraped the XR Forks and put on CR Forks. I have read alot about this on this site but was wanting more specifics on it. Does anyone have pics? What Year/Model/Size is the best to steal from. Do I need to get a CR Wheel too? Does anyone have part prints? Any help would be appreciated from a late blooming MX Rider. Matt 2002 XR250R Owner
