    SSssshhh - The Ultimate Ride Report???

    Nice example of nonviolent civil disobedience. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi would be proud.

    Giant Bog on my 250F-XCW

    This would explain the snap of the stock set up. It seemed like it had a power band. I kinda missed that once i installed the JD kit.

    Sounds very lean. They run lean stock, but not that lean. My 07 will not run with the choke on after about a minute of warming up. I go back to the dealer and have them get it right. I did the JD kit and mine runs great at HH. JD also answers your email questions which was worth the $$ spent on the kit.

    Smoking '07 250 XCF-W

    My bike started smoking and burning oil on the last enduro. The power seems way down. I'm 99% sure it is the rings. The bike has 106 hours on it. I just checked the valves and they have not moved since day one. I'm going to take it apart as soon as i can get a manual. I was hoping to get a couple of questions answered. 1. Do I need to worry about the valves since they are solid, or should replace them, springs, or the timing chain while i have it apart? I'm ride the bike hard, but I'm not bouncing off the rev limiter. My money is kinda tight right now and getting another 50 hours out of the valves would really help. 2. Which manual for this bike? I think it is: PN 3206052, CD REPAIR MANUAL 250 SX-F/XC-F/XCF-W 2008. This manual is for an 08 and my bike is an 07. I wish they'd put the manual in the parts list. It is friggin confusing. I asked a couple of dealers for the manual and they had no idea which one it was. Thanks!

    06' Rm125 Head Shake!!

    This could also be a really bad chain riding up and slipping back down the sprocket. You may want to have a look at the tooth profile.
