    2006 -2010 kx250f compatibility

    hey guys i have a 2006 kx250f and the head is cracked where the valve goes through, there is a 2010 kx250f being parted out near me, with the frame cracked, im wondering if the 2010 motor would bolt into the 06 frame, if not is it at all possible? and if not would the head from the 2010 fit on the 06 motor? thanks

    headshake!

    so... i own an 09 yz250f which is stock besides as exhaust. i recently changed my fork seals due to leaking fork seals haha and around the same time i noticed the leaking fork seals, i noticed a bit of headshake happening, it did nothing but get worse, so i changed my seals about a month or 2 after i noticed the leaking. i assumed that the headshake had something to do with the seals leaking. but now the seals are fine and the headshake is just as bad, if not worse. i have no idea whats causing it but it really takes a lot of fun out of riding. i had the EXACT same problem with my 07 yz250f, and i ended up selling it to get my 09. but right now i cant afford that. and i need to get rid of that headshake so any suggestions on whats causing it would be appreciated. also i replaced my steering head bearings, no help. and my front wheel has a little wobble that i can only notice on pavement at relatively high speeds. im not sure if that could cause it though so if any of you guys have advice on how to troubleshoot this problem, please inform me. this drives me crazy

    Got the rims/spokes/hubs powdercoated black!

    it needs a blue front fender, black number plates, black fork guards, and lose that license plate and itd be perfect just my two cents

    headshake!?

    i will check the sag later, how do you check fork oil level? could it possibly be because of how light the oil is in the fiork, because it almost sounds like water inside..

    headshake!?

    what do you mean by preload? rebound? i greased the steering bearings and it didnt help

    headshake!?

    hey, my fork seals began to leak early this year, i rode it until mid july without fixing them and never put any more oil in them. before i got them fixed i noticed a lot of headshake, figured that it was the fork seals so i got it fixed at my local yamaha dealer, i still find it has bad headshake and i dont know what it is? also, when you dont have your forks on the bike, should you be able to shake them and hear the oil slopping around inside? it sounds like there is a lot of room in there for the oil to move... thanks for the help
