  1. so I'm wondering about buying a 250cc 2 stroke I just turned 15 and weigh about 120lbs and am looking for a dirtbike coming off a Yamaha banshee. I will be mostly riding in the sand dunes but do go up and ride semi technical trails and desert riding. i've heard that a 125 will not have enough power for sand riding. would I be able to hold the bike up being around 5'9-5'10? what would y'all recommend I look for. (not at all considering a 4 stroke because of the costs of rebuilds)
  2. I'm interested in a Honda XR250 that I've found on craigslist. The guy that is selling it has it listed that the time tensioner is not set and its not fully put together. I'm new with the bikes and wanted to know if that is a big deal or if it is easily fixable, if so then how do i fix that? I want to make sure I will be able to get the bike up and running for my use.
  3. Just got a 08crf250r rode it and if u twist the throttle really fast it bogs and it backfires/pops when going down hills also it takes 4 to 5 kicks woth choke on to start. Dos it sound like carb problem or valves need adjusted. Anything would help thanks
  4. I picked up a rm250 a few months back for cheap missing carb needed stator missing coil and CDI box needed a kicker and stuff. Long story short I put case seals in it went though and inspected everything put it all together and got it running with an old Mikuni 125cc carb. I parked the bike for awhile (other projects) it’s summer time and I have time to work on the bike again. Put a bigger carb on it mounted the plastics rode it around etc. But I’m having issues figuring out what year it is. Here’s what’s got me stumped. It’s got a blue seat that goes onto the gas tank it says RM so I know it’s right for the bike the air box also has “RM” holes for air. I think it might be the RT version? Does anyone know if the air holes were stock? Or if that’s the stock seat? Also if anyone could tell me what kind of bars theses are that would be great this bike IS water cooled (just missing one of the rads)
  5. So I am 16 about 155 pounds and want a new bike. my first bike was an 06 crf230f bought it last summer wanted more power within 2 weeks, didn't have money at the time so I just kept riding it. want to go 2 stroke so I can work on my own bike more and just because they r more fun, I have ridden a 250 2 stroke before but it was 93 yz250 and didn't feel all that crazy. Btw I have about 3000-3500 to spend what bike would I be best off with
  6. Please help! I recently bought a Yz250f and have not been able to start it, it Has spark, but there are many issues with the carby which I wanna rule out before I leap into a rebuild, ( I want to avoid a rebuild if possible as I’m low on cash). The carby at the moment is a complete mess so the usual steps to fixing it might not work. So here’s the deal with the carb: - It’s leaking fuel from overflow ( really fast! ) and when I mean really fast, I mean it emptied my fuel tank in 2 mins. - It has a slow leak coming from somewhere under the float bowl - the air fuel screw is not adjusted correctly - I don’t know if the electrics work on it either - I don’t even know if it’s shooting fuel into the cylinder or not, as after kicking it a couple times and it’s not starting I remove the spark plug and it’s still dry. ( I tried putting fuel directly into cylinder from the spark plug hole but the bike still wouldn’t start) okay so I know it’s a lot but I’m not expecting anyone to answer every single question themselves. If each person could tackle whatever problem they know it would help heaps. Also just want to know what Order to fix things in as I can’t do air fuel until the bike is running and it won’t run unless I stop the leaking and get it to spray fuel into the cylinder. And buying a new carby is not an option ( I’ve got $40 to my name atm). Please help guys thanks.
  7. Hey! I have a Honda crf250r 2004 the bike runs smoothly but the only problem I have that if I try to start it it usually takes me around 10 kicks maybe more to get it running. When its warm it kicks first try. When its cold I turn the gas on, the choke, twist the throttle maybe 2-4 times am I doing something wrong? or is something wrong with my bike?

    Won't Start

    Hi All, I am trying to find ideas of why my 2010 CRF 250R will not start. When we first bought the bike we went for a ride and had no issues, we got home and washed it and it seemed to have gotten water somewhere on the electronics and did not start for a couple of days. We let it air out and sprayed with inox and it started fine. You can ride through water and it will not have any problems, but once it gets washed it will sometimes start but not every time. The bike has about 65 Hours on it, The last ride i had it stalled on me going up a hill and it would not idle anymore. We took it to the local motorcycle shop and got the valves shimmed and cleaned out the fuel tank, fuel filter and fuel pump got a new spark plug and it idled fine without any trouble. We have just rebuilt the water pump and put it all back together and once again the bike would not start. Pulled the spark plug out as we thought the bike may have fouled the brand new spark plug and replaced it with an older one and it started fine. Put the other plug we just took out of it back in and it started again, so we kept that plug in and now it will not start again. What could be occurring this to happen? We know it has spark and that it's not starving for fuel. Reminder: Valves just done, Cleaned fuel pump/Filter & New plug.
  9. I went out riding for the day and on the way back home i fouled my plug so i walked it the rest of the way and i took a wire brush and cleaned my plug and it started first kick. I noticed it was a bit rich on the pilot so i adjusted the fuel/air screw and got it running really good but then i saw coolant steaming out of the radiator cap so i quickly turned it off and later in the week i diagnosed it as a blown head gasket so i ordered it and replaced it and didn't start but it backfires out the exhaust when i kick it. I even tried bump starting it towed behind a quad and still nothing but i heard it fire every so often but didn't start so then i started tearing the bike down cleaned the carb really good got all the jets, replaced the pilot air screw since it was missing parts, got a new spark plug cap since it was rusty inside and the plug was loose in there, took apart and cleaned the power valves, cleaned the spooge out of the expansion chamber and silencer but still wouldn't start so now i don't know what to do i think it might be a timing problem since its backfiring but i really need some more opinions before i start f-ing with it.
  10. Hello everyone! I'm looking to get into dirt bikes and need some advice. I have a little experience on bikes from 5-6 years ago going out riding track with a friend on his yz85. They always said I was, "naturally talented" and needed to slow me down, but again tiny bike. I have been practicing on his old XR100 and having no trouble. We will be doing mainly desert and trail riding. I'm looking mainly at 2Ts because of their low cost, low maintenance, and just seem more fun. Now, I have a budget of around 1200-1500$, and there are many 250 2Ts in great condition in my price range. There's a YZ250 that's been done over to be enduro and my dad really thinks I should get it. I honestly think I could possibly ride it, but I'm also cautious because I'm aware of the huge power it has. One friend says I couldn't, the other says I definitely could. I'm 5'10, 15 yo, 130lbs. Thank you so much for your help. Link to bike: https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sgv/mcy/6209138331.html
  11. Has anyone installed and used a Checkpoint impeller? I see dirt rider had an article about them and I've been curious about them. I've been having overheating problems recently and after spending well over $200 on brand new radiators I've discovered the radiators weren't the problem. So I bought new piston rings since they were out of spec (supposed to be like .15 and they were .5) and then thought about buying one of these aluminum impellers to help the problem instead of keeping the flimsy plastic one. I've read mixed reviews about them. Has anyone had any luck with them or is it basically just paying for the same overheating problems to happen?
  12. Hey, guys. Just wanted to share a pic of our 250. If you have any questions give us a shout. It's also for sale! tmracinggeorgia@yahoo.com
  13. Today I decided to clean the carburator of my crf250r 2005. It was my second time doing it. When I opened up the top of the carburator to remove the slide, I didn't remove the throttle shaft screw and I still slid the slide out, but the control arm is now stuck. This video explain what I should have done at about 1:00. The only difference is I didn't remove the throttle shaft screw and now the control arm is sutck up and I can't slide it back down with the slide. I was still able to remove the slide. Anyone knows how to fix this? I can't acces the throttle shaft screw anymore since the control arm is stuck up.
  14. I can't get my 250 to run right. I'm an auto technician but I don't have much experience with the fuel injection ktm uses.It started acting weird after the last race. It only has 15 hours on the top and bottom ends and the valves are in spec. The bike was originally backfiring and running rough in low rpms and it wants to boil the gas in the tank. I have the tps set at .62, if I go any higher it gets worse. If I back it down to .56, the bike smooths out but I get poor throttle response with it shutting off if you twist the throttle too fast. I have cleaned the injector, changed the filter and checked fuel pressure and I even put a new tps on it. Still do doing the same thing, any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  15. im am 13, 100 pounds (with gear) and currently ride a 08 yz85 and am looking to move up. first off im not rich and i have to pay for my own stuff, i am not going to be racing i mainly just ride track and trails here and there also some desert sinlge track. i am debating on witch i should get next a yz125 or a yz250f. i can handle the power i have riddden both a 125 2 stroke and a 250f and i basically fell in love with both so i am in a predicament on what whould be best. anything helps
  16. I have a 2006 kx250f and was wonderingly if I could swap the engine for a 450f. Does anyone know if I could do this?
  17. Need help! Working on a friends bike can't figure out why the bike isn't getting spark and why the FI light is not blinking or anything. Bike ran fine when put away for the weekend and we go to start alls it does is turn over. Anyone know why or can help please?? Thank You!
  18. hey guys, Recently acquired a 2004 KTM 250 EXC. I'm looking for more power, better response. I've searched, but can't find an answer. What year heads and CDIs from 250SXs will fit my 2004 250 EXC? thanks for the knowledge.
  19. I bought this bike 8 months ago and it ran like a champ since I got it. The guy I bought it off of had the bottom end completely rebuild right before I bought it off of him, he had receipts showing the bottom end was only done 2 weeks before I bought the bike. Well I went out riding yesterday and in the middle of hitting a hillclimb it locked up and shut off on me. I was reading that wiseco makes garbage crankshafts but I wasn't sure if it was just because it was a wiseco crank is why it failed or if I was doing something wrong. The synthetic looking stuff they put on the crankshaft melted and seized my connecting rod. It's a 1999 KX250
  20. I got a new to me 2001 yz 250 which has a healthy motor and jetted properly for my elevation. The problem I'm having is when I'm in gear riding and push in the clutch the rpms don't drop to idle but if I give it gas it doesn't slip and revs freely. I can start the bike in gear fine and looked at my clutch already which has plenty of life left and my clutch basket is in good condition to. I adjusted my clutch freeplay which was already in spec. It has aftermarket clutch lever and I maxed it out as far as it can go outwards but the rpms still wont drop to idle when im trying to coast in gear. Another weird thing is if I'm stopped in gear with clutch pulled in it is at idle speed. Any suggestions is appreciated because I don't know what else to check.
  21. So basically. I got this yuuuuggeee RM250 in a trade. It is a really nice bike. I really didn't know much about it when I got it, except that it was very pretty and extremely fast. Anyways, I look it up and find that its the only year of air cooled engine w/ mono shock suspension. Anyways I have been storing the bike ever since on inside of my house and I think its time to make some space. The bike deserves to be ridden more... Honestly, I am a little afraid of how fast it is! And in case you can't tell where this is going... I decided to sell the bike and thought maybe you would be interested. I know its not from the best era or the coolest bike you've ever seen... But it is clean, fast, and pretty dang rare. If you appreciated that I didn't just throw this at you and say BUY MY BIKE and instead wrote a semi-thoughtful write up about it and then hooked in the advertisement at the end. You should check out the bike on Ebay. Ill put the link below. It deserves a good home. Someone like you. Someone like your son who's birthday is coming up. If someone wants it come and get it. No reserve, I sell to highest bidder no questions asked. I will help with shipping, provide more info, etc at jonahdeich@gmail.com. The bike is located in Savannah, Georgia http://www.ebay.com/itm/222475245091?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  22. I purchased a 2018 TX 300 in November and I been hearing about the magura slave cylinder failure on FE/FC/FX 450/501 but I was wondering if the 2 stroke models were having the same problems
  23. hi is was lokking for a ktm 250 xcw for my son and i couldnt find any horsepower related articles and i was wondering if anyone new???
  24. I have been riding dirt bikes for a little less than a year and I always ride trails and enduro. I have a crf250x right now and want to get a two stroke to go with it, should I get a Ktm 250 mxc? Or should i go with a yz 250 or cr 250? I've heard good and bad things about all of these bikes, and I need some help making a decision. I am going to look at this bike soon: https://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/mcy/d/2000-ktm-250-mxc/6552466361.html. I don't know if it is a good deal or not. Please help.
