    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

  5. 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).

    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!!
  7. 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."

  10. 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.
  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?

    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?
  13. 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.
  14. 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.

    1 comment

    Just purchased "new" 2017 Suzuki DRZ400S a couple months ago. I have done some minor Modifications to it and will record the modifications done in the future. I am now learning how to Update in Thumper Talk and hope to contribute more as I get used to this bike. I love it so far.
  16. 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.

  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.

  23. We all have one or more Philips head screw drivers in our tool boxes. It's pretty much impossible to be a DIY'er without them. But, if you own an a vehicle that was manufactured of Asian origin, chances are, the screws on it are not "standard" Phillips head. So, if you find that your Phillips head screw drivers are ruining your fasteners, it very will might be because you're using the wrong tool for the job. Lesser known is the Japanese Industrial Standard (AKA JIS). Bottom-line, a standard Phillips driver will not go into a JIS screw all the way because the corner radius of the screw is smaller than that of a standard Phillips driver. Because of this, it leads to what is referred to as "cam-out". In fact, the standard Phillips was created to allow this, so that you know when max torque has been reached, avoiding over tightening or worse, snapping fasteners. The differences between Phillips and JIS are not easily seen, so this illustration should help. Sometimes screws will be identified as being JIS if there is a dimple or dot on its head. But, this isn't always the case. But chances are, if you're working on a Japanese machine, the Philips head screws will be JIS. JIS screw drivers are not hard to find, ranging in price from the mid to high $20.00 for the budget stuff, on up to 3x (or more) that for the good stuff. Good tools, if taken care of can last a lifetime and the right tool for the job saves time and money in the long run.
