    Alright so i have a honda crf250x which had a baja road package. I removed mostly everything except the display screen and the keyed ignition switch. Yesterday i went to turn off the bike using this swith and it did not turn off!? I had to use a trigger shutoff switch which still works. I then prceeded to start it again without a problem, but when it came to turning it off, once again it did not work! (Mind you it has been running without most of the baja package fine for over a year now, just incase someone had that question) I am absolutely mistified and need some help to figure out how to get it to turn off again. Thanks! Henry

    Bearing press for $3.50

    No way I'm gonna pay $89.99 for a stupid piece of all thread and washers to press bearings into the swingarm. Here's a cheaper way that worked just as good: Buy a 12" piece of 3/8" all thread, some 1 1/2 washers, 2 nuts, and the appropriate size socket (19mm for a honda xr400.) I put a mark on the socket for the appropriate depth to press the bearing. (5.5mm in this case.) Make sure the socket is lined up, and start cranking on each nut! Here you can see the bearing next to the socket going in: That's all there is to it! i pressed all 4 swingarm bearings in about 45 minutes. No freezing, heating, or even greasing/lubing! And the best part is...I can spend my $90 on something else!!

  8. So we all love tools, what are the absolute faves? Brands, styles, you name it. Moto related, or shop related I guess would be best. I don't know if this has been done before but why not again..? I love my crankcase splitter by Tusk.. Works well and have used more than once. My SK sockets have handled years of abuse, given to me at the age of 16 years old from my father, I plan on passing them down one day.. And the motion pro seal driver is great, the one with the blue collar.
  9. We all have those stories.. my recent one was replacing my friend's spokes that were broken for 3 months. He had THREE MONTHS to fix it, didn't do it though. "Well my garage is full, only got space on the porch to work on the bike." So I guess it's easier to work on the bike on my truck's tailgate.. wait it's easier for ME to do the whole job for him. He's a buddy, but he's clueless how to work on bikes. And he used to ride the pro class on quads, he knows how to ride a bike well too. Maybe he's just too overwhelmed by the daunting, difficult task of--whatever. Who knows. Another time there was a guy in the woods, bike broken down. His dirt bike looked like it had never had a single thing done to it. Everything was loose, out of place, not adjusted, etc. Turns out he was stuck because his motor seized, he NEVER ONCE cleaned the air filter. I asked him what his maintenance routine was, and he said "Oh when it breaks, I have the shop fix it."

    One finger clutch?

    So I have always wanted a clutch that is VERY easy to pull in. Currently I have to use 2 fingers and when arm pump kicks in I have to use 3 or 4. How am I able to get a clutch that is very easy to pull it. Are hydraulic clutches the way to go and how big of a difference would it be?
  11. I only found one thread where an inside micrometer is mentioned but that seems like it would be a PITA. Anyone recommend one that is easy to use and readily accessible?
  12. Honda doesn't use Phillips screws like they appear. They have Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) screws that look like a Phillips screw, but actually are a different design that is easily damaged with a Phillips screwdriver/bit. Sometimes called a Japanese Phillips it is commonly found in Japanese equipment. JIS screws look much like a Phillips screw, but is designed not to cam out and will, therefore, be damaged by a Phillips screwdriver if it is too tight. The heads are usually identifiable by a single raised dot to one side of the cross slot. JIS B 1012:1985 screw standard is used throughout the Asia and Japanese markets. The JIS driver has a 57 degree point with a flat tip, parallel wings. Many people and companies outside of Japan have no idea what they are. With the similarity in appearance to the Phillips screws, JIS screws are often damaged during removing and installing process with the wrong tools. JIS drivers tends not to camout like Philips do. The JIS driver can be used on Phillips screws without damage. JIS drivers fit Phillip fasteners, but because of slight design differences Phillips drivers will not fit JIS fasteners. (a Phillips screwdriver can be ground down a bit to improvise if needed).
  13. Got the XCF good and dirty, cleaned it up and tried out a new chain & sprocket cleaning tool after my trusty ACE Hardware brush snapped. The grunge brush worked great, the adjustable teeth allow for good cleaning of the chain. The de-greaser that comes with it is useless so don't even bother.
  14. I recently moved a 4 hour drive from my old house where my buddy changed all my tires with a machine. I'm going to pick up a Tusk tire changer with bead breaker. What other bits and pieces are essential for a good tire change kit? Irons, valve stem puller....anything else?

  17. I just bought an '05 CRF450R. I disassembled the top end, and am now reassembling it. I've been using a needle-style torque wrench for the light stuff in past projects, and I'm wondering how accurate they are, and what you use. Thank You, Fellows.
  18. Hey guys i think there was another thread similar to this one but whatever. I was wondering do you like working on your dirtbike because i love to. I hate small annoying things like carb issues but almost anything else i like working on. Is this wierd but its almost like making a connection with your bike, you know how it runs and every little sound you hear you know that sound. Could i become a mechanic. Also i love watching dirtbike movies they just motivate me and want to make me ride.

    Homemade Flywheel Holder Tool

    They say necessity is the mother of all invention, I agree. I decided to build this flywheel holder because I am unemployed and dont have the money to be throwing around on over priced tools. The other methods some of you may use to remove the crankshaft nut did not work for me. I tried an impact wrench, oil strap, and putting it in gear while holding the brake down. I also did not like the idea of the jamming something in the clutch basket method. If you have also tried these methods and had no luck than building this tool is the way to go. Its like the saying " The right tool for the right job" and this is one case where it where it applies extremely well. I built this flywheel holder for about $5.50. I have seen this sort of tool go for $30+ dollars online. The price for you will vary by a dollar or so depending on what you already have laying around. I already had some nuts and bolts around so I only needed the steel bar and 4 nuts. I built this for a 06 YZ250F so you may need to change the bolt size according to you bike. For my bike a 5/16 bolt fit perfectly. I think this tool is simple enough to build for anyone just by looking at the pictures but i will try to detail what i did in each step. Parts List 3/16 x 3/4 x 3ft steel strip two 5/16 x 1 1/2" bolts four 5/16 nuts one 3/16 x 3/4" bolt one 3/16 nut one washer First, cut the steel strip into one 14" strip and one 6 1/2" strip. You can use a hacksaw, a cutoff wheel, or what ever else you have that can cut steel. Second, drill a hole using a 5/16(or what every size you need for your bike) drill bit into one end of each steel strip. I used a drill press for this step. If you dont have one a hand drill should work just fine but you will have to work a little more. Put a piece of scrap wood under the steel strip so as not to drill into you work surface. Next, lay the smaller piece of steel strip on the larger strip with the two 5/16 hole aligned. Place one of the 5/16 bolts through both of the holes to secure the strips for the next step. Both strips should be parallel and squared to each other. Now drill a hole at the other end of the small piece straight threw both pieces. Use a 3/16 drill bit for this step. This hole will be for the pivot screw. You may want to clean up the drill holes and cut ends strip for sharp spots using a file. Place the 3/16 bolt with a washer through the pivot hole and secure it with the nut on the other side. Take the two 5/16 bolts and thread a nut to the end of each bolt. The purpose of two nuts on each bolt is to secure the bolt into the tool and to adjust the depth of the bolts into the flywheel. Now place each bolt into the 5/16 hole and secure it with a nut. Thats it, your done. Simple eh.
  20. I don't know what is wrong but I have had enough for tonight. First time trying to put a rear tire on. I've watched all the vids and have all the tools. I've rebuilt motors quicker then I have spent trying to get the tire on. I've taken it off and on more times then I can count but never can get it to finially mount. There is always too much tire to tuck under. There is no way the get it to finish seating. It literally should not be this heard. . I'm either going to bend my rim or spoon if I keep trying. I need help. done for the night..check tomm.

    Used once. Picture says it all.
  22. This question only applies if your not on a track obviously. I ride the woods mostly and I recently emptied my camelback so I could wash it. I found I carry an awful lot of weight that is not water. Has anyone got a suggestion for some magical all-in-one tool that weighs 3 oz? I'd like to get some weight off my back. Any and all suggestions are welcome, even if it includes moving the water to somewhere on the bike. Not sure where else to put it, but you get the idea of where I am going with this. Thanks
