  1. Hey Guys and Gals! I went on a really cool ride at Corral Canyon OHV park in SoCal. The conditions were epic since we've been getting all this rain recently. I also got a new camera mount so let me know what you think!!
  2. Hello friends, Seeing as how school was about to begin, I took my boys on a 16-mile exploration ride through the country. Along the way we found a neat levee, and the boys rode across it on their little Honda dirt bikes (CRF50F and CRF70F). These little bikes are awesome. Dirt bikes are a great way to spend time together, in my opinion.

    Cr 250 Conversion

    So I can get a 1986 cr250 motor for a good price and I also know a guy that has a 2005 crf250r that needs work. I have the idea of just swapping motors. Would this motor fit in the newer frame?

    Pissed at Honda

    So I've got 2015 crf250x. I did many of the ccc mods and now it runs like a champ. Starts on first kick/push and I love the suspension and feel. What I hate about the bike is how hard it is to work on. Specifically the carb. For anyone who doesn't own a 250x/450x the carb sits right behind a large portion of subframe and is nearly impossible to access. I have a after market fuel screw and I still can barely get to it with my hands. If you actually wan't to clean the carb you have to lift the whole sub frame to get it out. Now my throttle cable is seized up (probably from sand) and I am going to have to replace. I'm not mad that the cable seized, it happens, things go wrong grit gets in places its not supposed to be and parts wear out. However where my throttle cables attach to my carb is completely inaccessible. So I am going to have to lift the sub frame again! This is not that big a deal but the last time I tried to get the airbox boot back on the carb it took 5 hours and a shit ton of grease. Carb work is something that is common on all dirtbikes. Even just for maintenance. It should not be that difficult to access it. It seems like honda doesn't want owners to work on their bikes anymore. Don't even get me started on trying to find a current service manual (because the bikes don't come with them anymore). I looked at several buddies bikes because I was curious as to how they are layed out, and for the ktm, yamaha, and suzuki the throttle cable fix wouldn't take more than 30 minutes. But its going to be an all day process for me. I'm so pissed right now I'm thinking about selling my bike and switching makers because I feel like this is going to become a recurring problem. What do you guys think? Any honda guys out there gonna convince me otherwise?
  5. Hello, I recently did a mini moto track day with my GF on CRF50's we had so much fun and looked into picking up an XR100 however they are going for $1200+ right now in So Cal. So we picked up a CRF80F for half that. However in stock condition it has a 2.5 x 16 front and 3.6 x 14 rear. What is the best way to get a 16" wheel on the rear? Should I purchase another crf80 front and lace it to the rear hub, should I purchase an XR100 rear wheel? I'm not looking to race this is strictly to have fun with my GF since we live right next to a kart track.
  6. Hi all, I have a 2005 crf250r that has a pretty bad bog whenever you whack the throttle. If you roll on the gas you cant even tell. The motor has about 7 hours on the full rebuild. Jets are 48 pilot 162 main 70 leak and i dont remember the other one. Has full fmf exhaust with mega bomb header and 4.1 pipe motor is stock. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Luke

    High RPM Scraping Noise 2011 CRF250x

    I have a 2011 CRF250x, I've always been on top of maintenance, never really flogged the bike. From about this time last year the bike developed a sort of rubbing/scraping noise coming from the left side of the motor only when it was 3/4 throttle or more. I thought it might have been drivetrain so I pulled over, put it in neutral and did the same thing (3/4 throttle and more) while sitting still and it did the same thing. The bike sat in the shed for about 6 months and then I took it out to see if I could figure it out. I pulled the valve cover off and everything seemed normal, nothing loose, valves still in clearances. I also pulled the cam chain tensioner out, I wasn't game enough to go further so I put it back together and started it. No noise. It was fine, I rode it for about 1-2 months with no noise at all. I had to get a friend to ride it to get it inspected for road worthy and the noise is back. I've tried taking the cam chain tensioner out again and it hasn't worked this time. The noise has also become worse and at lower RPM (more like 2/3 throttle now). I'm wondering if this has been experienced by anyone else also and how they fixed it. I'm not game enough to continue riding it as I'm not sure whether the noise is something going bad. I'm keen to fix the problem as I've been without a bike for so long, I just don't have the money to pay someone to dig around the bike for me. Thanks in advance

    Best Trail Bike

    I was wondering what trail bike I should buy, ive been looking at the ttr230 and the crf230f but they seem a bit small as I'm 6'1 and most people will say they are too small, what other options do I have for bikes that are reliable and that don't need a lot of maintinence like these two?
  11. Tired of putting money into an old 2003 KX 250 that keeps breaking and isn't perfect for what I ride, has some upgrades but kills me every race from the suspension. I like the bike but just don't want to be the guy who puts $1000 into suspension to make it suitable. What does anyone think the best option would be? budget around $3000. 6ft 160lbs. Really interested in a crf 450x or a wr450, and I know it will be heavy for me to handle but I'm hoping the trail settings and suspension should compensate and still be better than my KX (and it would still be a fun powerful bike). Ideally I would want a 250f mx bike that already had the suspension work done, but that is rare. Is there a certain 250f to buy that would have the "best" stock mx suspension for the woods? Really want something reliable and newer (2006-2010ish) but I know I would be bored of a regular trail bike (KDX, 250x, TTR) after the first ride, and need something to be able to compete. I can deal with my 250 2Ts power but the 450x torque might be a bit much in the PA single track. KTM is an option, probably only a 2 stroke, but bikes newer than 2005 are fairly expensive and hard to come by. Any suggestions for a competitive woods bike for that budget would be great, thanks.

    Michigan has some kick ass Trails!

    We have been going on adventures every other weekend riding everything Michigan has to offer within a few hour distance of where we live. This is a short one of us playing around on the Moss Lake trails in Rapid River MI. It's not a bad trail, a little choppy for how many roots are on the trail but none the less fun as hell!
  13. Hey guys, Really need some help on this one. I got a second hand CRF450R (2009) 80hrs, prior to handing the cash over, I took it for a ride and thought it was all good. (got it cheap, and suspect its been poorly maintained) That weekend I took it for a ride, first lap.. noticed a knocking noise. shut it off and took it home. Once I got it home I gave it a new top end.. piston rings, pin, had the barrel checked, shimmed valves to spec, new guides and new water pump. Went for a ride.. no good. still had the noise. Have now pulled the motor out and split the case... Only bearing i could find that may be on its way out was the roller bearing that the clutch basket sits on - a small amount of movement. BUT.. then I noticed the crank.. it slides side to side with a rather good "knock" (not the con-rod, but the crank),, there's so much movement that it almost looks like there is a thrust washer missing or something - but the service manual does not show a thrust washer there.. I'm 99% sure this amount cannot be ok. However, the main bearings that the crank sits in, have only the slightest amount of wear, almost nothing. This is my first bottom end of a dirt bike engine, so I'm not sure how much movement is too much. Has anyone come across this? or have any ideas/remedies??? Click on this link to a youtube video of movement of the crank.
  14. lookin to upgrade my suspension on my 06 cr250, curious whats possible with some work.
  15. I just bought a 2004 crf50, since I'm new at buying a motorbike I didn't really know what to look for. I got it for $500. It turns on with one kick of the kickstand but here's the problem I think, the throttle is sort of loose..idk if it's suppose to be like that? I grab the cable and pull back and the play sort of goes away so what might it be?
  16. anywhere on the innerweb to download it yet?
  17. Hi guys, I have a 2011 Crf250r that I’m going to pull the top end since I don’t believe the previous owner did any matinence on anything on the bike so I want to freshen up the Motor since I’ve replaced almost everything else on the bike. Now since I’m replacing piston I was wanting to try the JE 14:2:1 HC piston along with a cam , hot cam or anyone that suits it best. I’m aiming for low end to mid power increase. I figured if I add these mods to it I’ll be getting my ecu remapped and dialed into run vpU4.4. Just curious by adding these mods will I be adding a lot more stress on the engine? I understand by doing these mods I’ll have to be checking the piston and valve clearances more often which is no problem at all but just trying to figure out if it’s going to be adding more stress by doing this or just more matinence. thanks!

    Bike value

    Recently been looking at a 2007 crf150f parts bike to use to finish up my own to sell it and was wondering how much does a 2007 crf150f blown up motor go for? I don’t know if there is a market for blown up motors just checking if it’s worth something besides scrap metal

    need help taming a 2017 Honda CRF250R

    I'm new to riding and new to The Forum. I have recently purchased a 2017 Honda CRF250R and want to convert it for Enduro riding or single-track trail riding. the bike currently has way too much throttle response and it's to Snappy for me to control in tight technical terain or anything sloppy or rough I have heard that adding a flywheel weight or a G2 Tamer will help but I Wonder has anybody made these mods on a newer Honda and if so do they work? or is there something else I should go with? and if I get a flywheel weight what size would you recommend? thanks for any recommendations guys
  20. Howdy dirt bike friends! Here's another short clip from our kids' group ride this past Saturday. We're loving these bikes and the AZ spring weather.
  21. Just wondering if anyone else has had trouble getting their primary drive gear on a new crankshaft. Just seems to be tight when I line the missing splines up. If I could just lightly tap it on with a hammer. Curious if they are just a tight fit. Slides on my old crank no problem. New crank is an oem and old one is a hot rods
  22. 2008 crf250r. Just installed new gaskets for top end and new rings. I also adjusted the valves since the exhaust side had tightened up. I cleaned the jets in the carb prior to the top end work (which took about 3 weeks) It is still as difficult to start as before and i have to give the throttle a slight twist when i crank for it to start up. It will not idle and feels like it's significantly slower. I didn't ride it much before the top end work so maybe I'm just used to my 450 but it seems like it's sluggish. It doesn't pop at all though so what could be causing this?
  23. Hello All This is my first post. I am very much into my bikes but not on a racing level or anything. Lots of practice days... random outings in the woods... Weekend warrior type stuff . feel free to skip to the very last sentance for my actual question as to some of you guys the in between bits might just be waffle. Also, i have searched for an answer to this with some limited result. So... the big end bearing went while i was doing a poxy rolling burnout, or it was already well gone but this is what finished it off. I have already replaced the crank with one that has a new Conrod and all the trimmings (big end bearing). Going back in time now, when i was stripping the engine i did the clutch side first including the primary gear and whatnot, then when going around to the flyweel side i pulled on the flywheel and was stunned when the entire crank shifted. There is no up or down / wobble movement in the crank but it very easily shifts side to side by about half an inch, now i dont know if this was the case BEFORE removing the primary gear and all that stuff but i am baffled. As it stands, i have the new crank in and the crankcases closed back up and bolted shut with nothing else installed, just crank and crankcases... it still shifts side to side, another note is that it literally just falls into the bearing, as in there was no need to pull it into the bearing, heat up the case, freeze the bearing.. nothing... new crank came, i pretty much chucked it at the right case and it slid rite in to its seat. nice and snug... but slips in easy. To me this is very unusual, cranks normally need to be set into the bearing in one way or another so my question is: Is it normal for the crank in these bikes to have sideways play WHEN the primary gear is off of the motor? Thanks guys.

    Help my 250x is acting up

    Hi guys, I am new to this forum. Hopefully you guys can give me some insight or have experienced this yourselves. I have a 04 crf250x bike has been running awesome for some time now. I took her for a spin today and while I was riding noticed the clutch lever didn't feel like it had the same spring to it, almost like the clutch was hanging up. As I was riding I touched the adjustment sleeve up near the perch. It was hot, so much so it melted through my glove, I pulled over immediately and found that the cable was smoking behind my headlight/number plate and it eventually caught on fire! I turned the bike off, and it seemed to stop but I fired it back up to get it to my house. When I got to my house I shut the bike off. I pulled the front number plate off and found some of the insulation on the wires had been melted. Now the bike won't start, kick or button, with the button I don't even get a click. I checked the main fuse and it wasn't blown. The clutch pulls no problem aside from the fact it's insulation melted off as well. Before I start tearing it down is there anything I should start with that may be easy, it does have the original clutch, but I have been good about keeping up with the fluid. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys, Ken
