    How good is the TE250

    I have had mine for two years with no problems, trail riding and a little racing. If you are buying new you will get a two year warranty. No one else gives that!

    Excellent link there. Thanks muchly
  4. I finally was able to strip and grease the suspension linkage on my te 250, 2005, and thought I would post what I have learnt. The bike is a year old, used for trail riding, done some deep creek crossings, riding in rain and varied terrain and so yesterday I got stuck in. I stripped it all down and cleaned everything up, inspected, greased and rebuilt. All in all, a satisfying job. Now for what I learnt. The shock bottom bearing is badly sealed and needs doing more often. There was some corrosion in the bearing but no play. The rear grease nipple on the triangle link feeds the link bearings and the swing arm/link bearing, so pump a bit extra in there to get through to the bearing that you can't see. These bearings are pretty well sealed, no sign of water in them. The swing arm bearings were fine but ready for regreasing. no sign of water in them, so sealed good enough. Gotta emphasize that the bottom shock bearing is only sealed by two o rings and needs cleaning n greasing more often than the others. Hope this helps someone.

    Its good to find out the thoughts behind some of the usernames. It can show how people think. I like this thread. My username is a state of mind I find myself in sometimes and my avatar is because I am British
  7. I recently fractured my scapula and seperated my AC and have the same numbness/almost pins n needles to my 4th n 5th fingers. My physio recommended some exercises to work the tendons for as they can get pinched or strained by the injury. The exercises helped me so maybe go see a physiotherapist.

    Well you were lucky, maybe time for a lotto ticket? Gotta agree with the 7602 cover. Worth every dollar for peace of mind on the oil level.

    Help Desperately Required ?George?

    Under UK consumer law a product has to be fit for the purpose it was sold for. Your bike isnt. Tell them you want a refund. Dont ask, tell. If you are dealing with the importer and they cant fix it, then the bike is a duffer. You want a full refund or a new bike.
