    Floating rotors wear out....

    i tightened up the floating disc i had before with a hammer and punch a little at a time and try to get the same float on them all. discs do wear out but thats because they are working well ,sometimes some types of pads are harder than other ones,and some stop better than others ,its all a balance of the best parts to get the best brakes you can and its a racing bike and things wear out. philip

    Wiseco Piston Issue

    i have just read all these pages and its easy to see that over time peoples thoughts get misplaced from the origional point. the thread started about wiseco piston pin placement and that wiseco had been contacted ,its easy to see that wiseco are going downhill and they are not looking after a problem and they dont have good enough staff to do the job how long does it take to check a piston ring pin placement. the point of cast verses forged pistons has been done thousands of times ,god what boreing people this site has,no wonder many sensible people dont bother to look on here much now. 58 years old and fitted with a brain. philip

    Yellow Plastic...

    ufo plastic prices from md racing products,front guard no 3879 17.91 pounds rear guard no 3845 19.03 pounds rad scoops 31.35 pounds and side plates 31.35 pounds and the dollar is 1.58 to one english pound as of today, their are a couple of front and rear guards that ufo list the nos i have given are the best shapes i think for yz 125/250 and i believe the 4 stroke yellow front guards also fit, ufo also has some front no plates for variouse years. i have full ufo yellow plastics on my 2007 yz 250 and all fitted fine. the usa had a slightly different exhaust side no plate than europe as their silencer was smaller but from 2009 i believe they went to the same size,small difference. philip

    New DEP Pipe. 2009 YZ250.

    i could have sent the pipe back but the pipe came from the usa to me in thailand you can spend the money on postage and get another one and maybe that would fit badly also ,mine is the armoured enduro pipe but all types of the yz dep pipes have had fitment issues, im glad some riders have had their pipes fit ok, i tried a hgs pipe and that fitted up just as the origional one just a pity they are harder to get. theirs a few threads regarding dep pipe fitment and its not good for dep or their customers. phily cee

    Enduro YZ 250 Weight

    ktm 2011 250 and 300 excs shows weights at 104 kgs (229 lbs) without fuel ,if this is correct ? they are a little lighter than the yz 265. ktm 2012 models with linkage have added around 4lbs to previous models. fatty phil

    DEP pipes questions

    i have a new armoured pipe and it does not fit at all good any way you try it, it hits the clutch cover screw and with the silencer fitted the front bolt fixing is 25 mm too high ,i know many people have similar problems fitting these pipes. i put my dep back in the dep plastic bag it came in and its still in my garage today. check the stickie on this forum where stimps dynoed lots of pipes and silencers, he did a great job. philip
