  1. Good morning folks, I have an 08 CRF250R that I just got. It was super hard to start. I took it to get the valves shimmed and looked at over all. He said valves were tight now only starts if idle screw is screwed in quite a bit will kick and start easy just will idle high I noticed it likes to have mixture screw one turn out. Once started I’ll bring idle down and it’ll idle fine “sometimes” but always need to turn idle screw way up to start. It won’t start at all with choke on. And if I try turning on choke will cause it to die. Also need to pull hot start to turn on either cold or hot. Any help greatly appreciated. The mechanic who worked on it said It has a 50 pilot and a 185 main, and 180 leak- didn’t think that even existed. I’m at 2,800 ft above sea level.
  2. I have a buddy who lives in the Charlotte area. He has decades of experience on motorcycles, but just got an ATV to ride because is not a spring chicken. We'd like to find a place where we can ride together. I've got a KTM dirt bike, so I can ride nearly anywhere, but he needs some trails that are less challenging, at least until he gets a dozen or so hours. His ATV has a single left hand combined brake, so it feels all wrong for someone used to motorcycle brakes. I've been to Brushy Mountain, and it was great for me on the KTM, but I'm not sure it is really all that mellow on an ATV. Got any recommendations?
  3. Hi TT community, I live in SoCal area (5 and Oso Parkway) and recently got my first dual sport motorcycle - 2019 DR-Z400 S. I'm so stoked. Dreams do come true. Bought it from a previous owner, had around 1200 miles on it; all stock. Put around 50 miles last weekend around Silverado canyon - Maple Springs trailhead. Met some cool dudes and had a great time. I was looking to see if you could suggest some beginner off road mods to keep the bike safe. If this is probably covered in an earlier forum, I'd appreciate a link. Also, how to find riding buddies around Southern California, any suggestions? Peace Ray
  4. So I’m new to dirt bikes but my cousin has one that I ride every week and I’m learning quickly, he has a 2006 Honda CR85, and though it fits me well, I don’t believe I can get one for my price range. So here’s what I’m looking for: -Bigger size bike, I am 5’11 and 150 pounds and I do not want a pit bike or a small bike. -I want one that is going to be durable and not break down a lot -My maximum price is $700, and I would like to spend closer to $500 if possible -I am buying used so keep in mind I am not buying a new dirt bike, so it will be cheaper and I can negotiate the price some as well -Though I don’t plan on racing or anything, I want a bike that can get some good speed, so a bike with a max speed of 40mph isn’t ideal -I am open to any type of bike so I’m fine with a manual or semi-auto, I can use a clutch and stuff so yeah, 4 stroke is PREFERABLE if possible Anyone have any suggestions? Right now I am looking at a 2002 Honda XR80, a 2008 Honda CRF 80, and a 2005&2011 Yamaha Tt-R125. But I think these bike will be too small for my liking.
