  1. I will take a look at them.
  2. Thanks for the replies. Took it out today for the break in, now I will upgrade chain and tear it up!
  3. I am looking to upgrade from the stock chain. So many chains to choose from, which one do you guys prefer?
  4. I am wanting to buy a 09 or newer 450. I dont want to spend $9000 on a new one so I am looking for a used bike. I dont want to buy one that needs the motor rebuilt anytime soon or is on the verge of breaking down. I have found a few used bikes with about 45 hours on them. I know that lower hours is better and upkeep and maintenance also play into this but how many hours is too many hours for a bike before its ready for a top end?
  5. Supercross

  6. Completely stock. Does a main jet of 160 seem about right?
  7. I have a 2008 wr250 that has the bottom end bog. After reading the forums seems like I need to check the needle position, jetting and air screw this is what I found about my bike. I am at about 4500 ft and ride about that same altitude maybe lower but not much and possibley up to around 6000. I checked the jet and have a 160 in it. The needle is fixed and it cant be adjusted. I think I would need to get an adjustable needle and is that Jet a little rich for that altitude?
  8. Thanks for the replies this has been helpful!
  9. I will have to find one of these tools and put it in the tool bag.
  10. Thanks for all the replies. I am hoping to get out of the bike in the next week or two, after the weather warms up and give them a try. One last question. When some say that they turn all the way in to flush, I assume that you turn it clockwise until it stops, is that correct?
  11. Did you keep it stock of did you adjust it at all?
  12. I have an 09 300 xcw that is still stock settings. I have not touched the spring or adjustment. What spring are most of you using? I mostly ride single track that can be tight and technical with hills, or trees. Very little flat wide open stuff.
  13. Thanks, I guess I'll break down and get the entire unit. rather safe than sorry!
  14. I am looking for a rear disc guard for an 09 300 xc-w and I'm hoping not to spend $90.00 in doing this. Can you point me in a direction as to what brand to look at? I looked at Devol and dont like that design.
