    aftermarket head?

    The phatheads are actually made so that you can change the dome in the cylinder head. It basically allows you to mill your head to different clearances all with one head. This allows fine tuning for power delivery, altitude, temperature, and gas type. I think one head come with like two or three different interchangable domes.

    Rim Damaged! Need Advice?

    Racing in the desert that sight is a common thing. I have seen bends much bigger than that and the rim was still used. If I replaced a rim everytime that happened I would go through almost a rim a race in the desert.

    VDR HS Race #2 Roll Call

    Is there still open practice on the motocross track and the offroad section tomorrow?

    Hey VDR Pete, about them tires...

    I say make a mud pit, log section, tire obstacle, and a gnarly rock garden. THis would remind me of my Nevada desert GP days and help make up for my slowness around the moto section. Nothing like struggling through a log section and having one of the Pearson boys triple the logs as they pass you

    Aftermarket foot pegs.

    I broke that bolt on my Fastways once too. Nothing like landing an 80 footer and having your peg dissapear from under you. After that I went with the stainless moose pegs and like them a lot.

    Who's still riding a '02 to '04 450?

    I just bought an 03 CRF450. The price was right and since my 250 is set up solely for off-road I thought it would be a good bike to take to the track when I go. I really like it and havent had any problems with it.

    2008 Crf 450's arrive saturday!!

    I think Honda added the stabilizer so that they could reduce the rake on the bike. This reduced rake is what makes the bike turn better in the tight stuff, and the stabilizer helps the bike keep its stability at higher speeds. If the bike turns under the older ones but is just as stable at higher speeds, then thats the stabilizer doing its job.

    2004 cr250

    I love my 04 but I will admit it doesnt come on strong on the bottom like my buddies newer YZs. I love the midrange hit and the strong pull all the way through the top. The handling and suspension are great stock but I had my suspension done by Race Tech for the desert. Im sure you will love the bike

    I really like the Sunstar Z-sprockets. I have had one for almost 2 years that I use on my 250 and 450 and I think it was maybe 30 dollars.

    seal savers.. how do you like um?

    I use them on my off-road bike but not for motocross. I really think it helps in the sand and that type of stuff just be sure to pull them down and clean it out every now and then.

    installing flywheel question

    I have used a piece of wood between the rear wheel and the swingarm but it is a pain in the butt. It is like 10 times easier to just buy the tool and use it than struggle with wedging something in there.

    Pinch Flats?

    A lot of times people will get the tube stuck under the rim lock when they tighten it down. I used to see this happen all the time when I worked at a motorcycle shop. The bibs hold up fairly well but are really expensive and are a real pain in the butt to put in a wheel. A good ultra heavy duty tube, clean rim, and nice tire is all you should need.

    Pinch Flats?

    4 flats in one ride still seems like a lot in one ride. It almost makes me wonder if its something different like a spoke poking a hole in the tube or maybe getting it pinched in the rim lock. When I used to ride real rocky stuff I would use MSR super Heavy Duty tubes at 15lbs of pressure in front and rear.

    What Size For a 250?

    Go with the 8-cup paddle made by Kings. It has the fins on the sides and is a lot better than the Cheng Shin tires in my opinion. Dont try and run a 10 cup paddle either. The only bike I have ever liked a 10 cup on was a 525. I have an 04 CR250 ported, polished, milled head, pipe, reeds, and jetted right and she cant be beat with the 8cup on there. The ten cup wont allow the bike to rev out quick enough and wont be near as good. 6 cup tires are meant for 125s and 250Fs so dont run one on your 250.
