    how are the 04 250fs?

    For those who are "still" pushing SS valves, Do you think that when ALL the factories started putting Titanium valves in there bikes they did it, so they could LOOSE THOSE SHOOTOUTS IN ALL THE MAGAZINES???... common lets use some common sense here, on the 04 crf250 keep it and: http://www.transworldmotocross.com/mx/news/article/0,13190,1558721,00.html

    Head Removal

    Dave, since you seem to be watching this post, I have a question (not a dig) are you suggesting your customers use SS valves, instead of staying with TI valves and "replacing" the hardened steel IN seats with nickel/bronze seats (compatible metals) as to keep up with technology instead of moving backwards?. Again this is in no way meant to be taken or is implied as a dig...

    Which exhaust for 07 CRF250?....

    I have a full FMF TI (mega bomb header) blue anodized cans dual system for sale, perfect condition only practice laps on it. First $500 takes it, I will give you the jetting specs that will give you a good baseline setup for running this pipe. The Mega Bomb header has excellent power gains all the way through the RPM range but performs best Mid to Top end.

    Okay here goes ('04)

    If your not lining up on both right and left notches as well as the two notches on the cam (OE cam), theres a chance your 180 deg out, on another note if you are re shimming valves, start looking into parts and machine shops to do the work right, it will save you cash and headaches down the road...

    These are great and reliable bikes, we have found the solution to the valve issues, I just pulled the cover and checked tolerance on my riders bike last night and it's right where i set it up.

    Believe it or not I have seen where the piston was installed wrong, the piston is clearance cut for the valves, larger for ex. and smaller for int. it will run but knock like crazy. another thing is setting run out on the balance shaft is critical the shaft can and will warp and cause a knocking sound, hopefully the person who last cracked the cases on this machine knew what he/she was doing.
