  1. I was wondering if it's common to see some aluminium particle in the used transmission oil of my 05 CRF250. I believe it is clutch particle, am I right ? It's very small though.

    Cleaning air filters??

    Diesel + Soapy water, then I rinse with cold water and dry it with an air compressor

    Weird Chain on my 05 CRF

    The weird thing is that once the chain is properly adjusted, everything is ok for 4-5 spins. After, it gets tighter. If my sprocket was bent, it wouldn't be ok for the 4-5 first spin. no ?

    Everything is stock including chain and sprocket. From my point of view, the sprocket seems alright.

    Weird Chain on my 05 CRF

    what's the average difference between the tightest point in the chain and the loose one. Mine is about 0.75 -1 inche.

    Weird Chain on my 05 CRF

    If the chain wouldn't be straight, it would always be the same chain slack. However, when my adjustements are over and everything is ok, I spin the wheel 5-6 yimes and it gets tighter.

    Weird Chain on my 05 CRF

    This evening, before doing some laps, I looked at my chain and saw something weird about it While the bike is on the stand and I make the wheel spin, the chain tightens. At the beginning, the chain slack is ok, and after 5-6 spin, it's getting tighter and tighter.. 1- My adjustments are the same on both side 2- The chain is brand new ( 5-6 rides ) and oiled. 3- My rim is not bent. 4- Everything else seems ok. ??

    Fast Quesriob 05 CRF250

    Today, I changed for the first time the transmission oil in my engine. Like my other bike, a 2002 CR125R, I was wondering if there is any bolt that you loose to see when your transmission is full of oil. A kind of overflow that tells you to stop filling the transmission. Otherwise, we just put approximately 600-700 ml ??

    Gas mix ratio?

    It depends which kind of oil you're using. Mineral Oil = 32-38 :1 Semi-Synthetic = 40-45:1 Synthetic = 50-60 :1 Personnaly, I'm using Motul 800 Factory Line full synthetic at 55:1 on a 2003 KX250.
