  1. Thanks I actually tried removing the brake line and then tried pushing it back in to no avail. Im thinking ill remove the whole caliper and see if I can equally push the piston back in with a c clamp and the old brake pad, What do you think?
  2. Fellas - I am in the middle of replacing my brake pads, front and back and having trouble replacing the rear pads because the piston will not seat all the way into the caliper. I could use any pointers on how to reseat the brake piston into the caliper so I can get these pads back in service. Thanks in advance for any help. Additionally, after getting the front pads replaced i hand spun the front wheel and the pads rub slightly on the disc, Is that normal (Im assuming it is until they wear a bit.)

    2002 XR250 - Valves HELP

    Thanks for the replies fellas, especially the manual download link, thats great. As far as the work I had done I took the bike in cuz it was runnin like crap, popping and sputtering and not idling while trail riding (a challenge in itself). The mechanic adjusted the valves and switched the jetting to a larger jet so that the bike would at least run and stay running. It still runs like crap and he recommended it needed a valve job because there was leaking around the valves. Im new to all this mechanical stuff but like diggin into it with good direction so Im open to suggestions and any additional help that can be offered. Again, thanks

    2002 XR250 - Valves HELP

    fellas - I recently had my 02 XR250 worked on to get it back to running operation again and the mechanic told me that I needed new valves. He quoted me around $250 for the valves and labor but i would rather do the work myself and make a learning process out of it for me and my boys (13, 5). Please help me with the following: Where and what valves to buy (mostly trail riding and following kids around) Directions for changing valves (any internet how to sites that are helpful?) Any other expertise for this rookie. Thanks in advance. Cheers. SCott
