    WR250f to yz250 2-stroke?

    So here's my situation... I bought a 2004 wr250f last year and converted it to be street legal. After riding this past year on and off road, I have decided that I really don't care about having a dual sport anymore, because riding on the road is sketchy as &%$#@!. I love the bike, it's great for the riding I do, which is entirely trails these days, but the bike feels heavy and slow... Ive been really interested lately in buying a 2005+ yz250 2stroke for the snappy power, light agility, the ease of raising the front tire with throttle, as well as just trying something new, as the WR was my first bike. If I did buy a yz250, I would add a heavy flywheel weight (11oz) and possibly drop a tooth on the front sprocket, maybe even get a rekluse at some point, because I ride pretty technical, steep, wooded trails out here in the PNW. What differences would I notice between the two? Would a 2T be suitable for my riding? What else should I know or consider? I have ridden my friends 2013 KTM 250xc and had never had so much fun on a dirt bike... Any input would be greatly appreciated!
  2. From everyone else's experience have you ridden anything in Michigan that compares to riding the Tomahawk B and C loops in Wolverine? I'm finding myself becoming a Tomahawk snob because I can't seem to find any other trails that compare to the Tomahawk. The elevation changes/hills, the woops, the tight twisty trails, the rocks the roots just the all out flow of the trail is amazing. Everything we have tried this year to me doesn't have that wow factor and just seems flat and twisty. Anyone have any other recommendations to try before the season is done? Thank you
  3. Hi, I'm interested in buying a new woods and trail bike for around $2,000-$3500. I'm 15, 5'8, and 120 lbs. I ride anything from high speed trails to tight technical single track with lots of rocks and hill climbs. I've been thinking about getting a ktm 200 or 150 but I also saw a pretty nice yz144 for sale. Here are some I've been looking at: https://kansascity.craigslist.org/mcy/d/2006-ktm-200-xc/6348743941.html https://omaha.craigslist.org/mcy/d/2009-ktm-150sx/6376769988.html https://lincoln.craigslist.org/mcy/d/2006-yamaha-yz125-dirtbike/6364177669.html Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  4. Time for a new bike. Could the FE350 be right for me? Background: I am "graduating" from my '08 Honda CRF250X (original owner) - mod'd with full exhaust, jet, de-emissnioned, etc. -so my 16yr old can take it (up from his 230). I've loved the bike but am interested in trying something new. My riding is primarily trail in northern CA. Love fairly technical single tracks. I don't want a red sticker bike so my only choice for Husky (or KTM) in CA would be an FE. But, I don't ride street and don't want to compromise off-road ability. What would it take, if anything, beyond dirt tires and removing mirrors, etc, to make this a great trail bike? I want it to be a bit better - faster and better handling -than my mod'd CRF250X, but don't need anything crazy. I am now 50 after all... Would it need a re-map? Is that even possible for a street legal Husky? Interested in others' thoughts. Thanks.
  5. Hi, Im new to riding and planning to buy my first bike (a 125 2 stroke) and ride it in the mountains (image below) now i was wondering how long a piston will last in these conditions. i have no experience riding bikes so i thought someone here might have an idea, thanks for taking the time to read this

    2T 150 or 250!?!

    Hey guys, I'm new to thumper, but I was hoping I could find someone who could help me. HERES THE DEAL! I've been riding 4 strokes for about 7 years now, but the 2T world has recently gotten my attention! I currently ride a 2006 YZ250F. (Fully rebuilt by myself;). I ride the piss out of it and I feel like it's missing something. I've tried shaking things up like riding different terrain(sand dunes,Rocks,etc.) I thought maybe I would try a 450, I got to ride my buddies CRF450X. lol that bike humbled me. It was way to high and It felt a LOT heavier. I crossed out the 450 bc I think it would be a waste and I wouldn't be able to push the bike to its limits. With that being said I'm trying to decide between (2017 Ktm 150 sx, 2017 Ktm 250sx, and 2017 YZ250 and/or the X model). Here's me.. I'm roughly 5'8" 175-185lbs. I lift 5-6 days a week. I enjoy riding anything and everything as long as I get to ride.
  7. Heres a video edit of the adventures I had riding by the Rio Puerco this last Sunday 7-16-2017
  8. I have a klx 140 G and have been riding for close to two years now. I usually go out once a week after work with my husband when its not too cold or snowing out. Since we live in Michigan, our season is not super long. I am not brand spanking new, but I would not classify myself as a proficient rider yet. The most technical trails I have encountered were out in Montrose Colorado and some single tracks up in Norther Michigan. I have not mastered wheeling over logs yet so when I come to down trees that are too big to just blurp over, I end up going around them. We are thinking about going out to Idaho with my father in law to ride trails out there. Does anyone know of any good trails for beginner riders?
  9. I'm looking into buying a used bike to ride on trails, which bike between the two would be better to go on long distance trail rides and be the most reliable. Oh and I'm 5'10 175 pounds if that makes anything different.
  10. Hello, For this summer, I was looking for a project. As a desert/trial, and occasionally single track rider from Southern California, any time of the year works for a build like this. I grew up riding two-stroke and after a couple years on four strokes, I want to return to the enduro king. However, KTM and Husky sell their bikes for quite a high price tag. So, I have decided I want to take an older two stroke motocross bike i.e. cr250, yz250, etc., and make it the ultimate desert bike for significantly less than a new KTM. I am not loyal to one brand, but I have always loved Honda and spent a grand a month ago on all new gear with Honda's name plastered all over it. I know all the mods I want to do the bikes to make them enduro/desert ready: heavy flywheel, 18 inch rear wheel, new exhaust, steering stabilizer, etc. What I need help in is I don't know what bikes I can install a wide ratio transmission in. I know yz250 can take a 400 or 426 transmission, but can any other brand? I would like to see a cr250 with the gears of a 450x rippin through the desert. I like the steel frame for off road use, and I just need some advice on the best bike for this conversion. Thanks
  11. I have a 2008 YZ450F with a stock header pipe and Pro Circuit T-4 Slip-On Exhaust. I'm 99% sure the slip on is shot because its loud as hell and when I take it off and shake it it rattles. I would repack it but the screws are all stripped ect. Anyways I've gone over the carb multiple times and I've got it running pretty well. The only issue I have with the bike is that it sputters and pops around 1/2 throttle when I hold it there. When I give it full throttle from any RPM it runs great or when I give it about 3/4 throttle it spins up like a top to redline. Initially the popping and sputtering was way worse I made the situation better by moving the pilot jet up in a few sizes from a 45 (stock) to a 62. The issue has gotten way better since then but I'm not super sure what to do from here. Should I keep moving my pilot jet up in size because that's a pretty large jump right? I tried changing my needle clip position but that didn't help much if anything it just made starting it worse and little to no impact on the ride. Any input on this would be helpful. I don't want to buy other slip on. Also as for the rest of the carb I'm very sure everything else in it is what it needs to be at. I've replaced all the gaskets and O-rings cleaned all the jets, valve holes ect. fixed the accelerator pump timing. I just thinks its strange that my pilot jet size is going so far from the stock 45, but all symptoms point to the bike running lean.

    TTR 125 Mods?

    I'm looking to mod out my 2015 TTR 125 but I can't seem to find anything really except for like exhausts, sprockets, rims and obvious stuff like that. If anyone could help me out with some links or just names of stuff that would be great.
  13. Hey guys, I've researched for a while and still have no idea on what to buy. I plan on riding trails around Ottawa, Canada. No track. I have 5 years of experience on the road with a KLR650 and Z1000. My budget is about $3000. Used bikes around here are $1000-2000 for 125cc mid-2000 and $2000-$3000 for 250cc. I plan on riding a few times a year, whenever I can. I like green but I cannot find any KDX 200 around here. There's also the 2T vs 4T debate. I might buy a 2T 125cc to keep things cheap for my first trail bike. What are your thoughts on travelling the bike on a hitch platform behind a truck? Bad idea? I figure it beats buying a trailer.

    2007 KX250 trail build.

    First post. I hope someone finds this informative. I'm using this as a build journal to document my process and the mistakes I make along the way. 2007 KX250 12T front 51T rear sprockets I'm 5'4" about 140 pounds and not as in shape as I'd like to be. Bike cost me nothing. So I'm fine spending a bit. I cut the seat down, added a lowering link, redid the suspension so I can get one foot down. Easy pull inline clutch linkage did wonders for the left hand. 13oz flywheel weight did wonders for the rideability and made climbs a bit easier. Now I want more. I'm now in the process of taking apart the head and the bore to send to Eric Gorr to get a port job done and a decompression valve installed for easier starting. I also plan to get an FMF Gnarly pipe and Turbinecore2 spark arrestor silencer. The Boyesen Rad valve just came in the mail. Lastly, an 18" rear with some Ibex shoes. What do you people think?
  15. Hello all! My name is Miles and I need some help gauging what to expect for condition/"reliability" you could say, of my DRZ400E for cross country travel! I am looking into traveling the Trans America Trail. I'm from Rhode Island and found an alternate rout where I can start on the West border of Connecticut. Ending in Colorado, to Nevada, then California; and cruising something along the lines of RT66 back. [just for reference, don't mean to ramble] The Machine: 2003 DRZ400-E ~6k miles total - 5k lightly ridden, never seen dirt - 0.8k %100 hard off road [past year] Frequent Oil changes, Air Filter changes {I ride with the guy I purchased it from nearly daily. He was good about maintenance on the regular, but also pushe the bike in the woods just as much!} Front and Rear Suspension rebuilt, carburetor rebuilt all last year Stock everything except FMF power bomb header and exhaust muffler, and Vapor Trail Tech, lights + fork socks Expected Maintenance: Top End Rebuild, Timing, Valves adjusted [Have not done compression test, but i would expect new top to be necessary] obvious things such as Brake Pads, Fluids, Chain/Sprockets, Tries, Heavy Tubes From this information, And Any You Can Think Of To Ask, does this DRZ have potential for the Trans America Trail; a ~6'000 dirt, then ~4,000 road return trip?! Or would I be better off selling it for a newer model? Thanks! -Miles
  16. hi all, just wondering i've narrowed it down to these 2 ktm 450 xc f and a honda 450 rx both 2019 all i really need is low to mid power just want to know which one has more low to mid, thanks Archie
  17. I got into a small heated discussion with one of my coworkers the other day and i am still bugged by the conversation. Id like a little insight on the subject so feel free to share your opinion, concerns, comments or rambles. So i live in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I just recently got into motorized riding and have been riding mountain biking for a few years now. I am outdoors as much as time allows. I care about the environment around me and do my best to clean up trails and keep nature as natural as possible. That said......My coworker is an intense Mountain biker. The discussion came about because i asked if she knew how to access a trail system near her house. She then attacked me verbally saying that us motorized riders don't respect trails, or we widen them, or we are just &%$#@!.(granted, we can all be &%$#@! or bitches if we want) I was a bit taken back by her accusations when all i did was ask a simple question. Now to her point if the trails were or are muddy and wet then i would indeed be destroying trails. But i wasn't planning on riding the trails, just wanted to figure out how to access them for when they do open in a week or so. Okay, all that being said my response to her was "I pay taxes, registration fees, my bike is insured, i have health insurance and i have to pay to use the trails on my bike. You however ride the same trails, motor ways and do damage to trails just like i do but do not pay ANY fees." SOOOO i guess my post is to ask a question to the community: Should mountain bikers be required to have a sticker to ride trails? Should they have to register their bike if riding on the road? Should us dirt bikers be allowed to ride mountain bike trails since we actually pay to use trails and roads?(I know, not very realistic) Have you ever had any troubles with a pedal biker on your dirt bike?
  18. I can't find a light weight flywheel to replace the one in my 2014 500EXC. It is going to be used strictly for hill climbing so quick shifting is very important and I need to be able to get the bike up to high RPM's as fast as possible. A flywheel weight is easy to find, but I can't find a replacement that is "lighter". Can anyone help please

    Greetings all, this is my first post so I apologize for its length. I'm a long-time road rider who's always had a desire to ride dirt either trail or MX. A few weekends back I visited our local MX track and rented a CRF150 for an hour. I had an absolute blast and it sparked the desire to buy. In elementary school my friend had an XR75 that I rode for maybe 15 mins. I grew up reading Cycle magazine, pouring over reviews and dreaming. I have a soft spot for Honda so the CRF150 appealed to me but it was too small for my 5'9" frame so its big brother the CRF230F is appealing. Here's my conundrum: I live on Southern Vancouver Island where there are two trail riding areas and either is 60 min drive. Or the local track which is a 20 min drive. I don't want to break the bank doing this so I've been looking at used CRF230s and XR250s. Either are great for trails but not so great at the track. Do I buy an older MX bike like a 96 CR250 that will work great at the track (I have no desire to race) and could be set up for trails or go the CRF/XR route and accept their track limitations? Argh! I'm totally stuck on what to do
  21. Hello everyone! I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I would like to ask for some advice regarding some upcoming motorcycle purchases. My parents are in the process of purchasing a mountain cabin here in Colorado (Redfeather lakes) some time soon. The cabin is surrounded by dirt roads and trails so they intend to buy several dirt bikes for me as well as my younger brother and sister to put around on while we are staying up there. I would like to ask for some advice/ suggestions regarding which motorcycles would be the best choice for me (my younger siblings as well). So, I have a few years of dirtbike-riding experience on a crf100, but that is it. I haven't ridden one in a long time though I do have a sport bike which I ride a lot now. I have an affinity for two-strokes and would love to pick one up. There are several nice older ktm 300 exc's on craigslist for around 3,000 dollars , as well as several yz250s in a simlar price range. I would love to have the ktm, but I am afraid that the maintenance cost will be very high despite it being a two stroke. The yz is a motocross bike but I hear that they can work as a trail bike. There is even one nice looking kdx 220 that I have my eye on (My friend says that its the greatest trail bike ever made. Is that true?). Would any of those be preferable to another, and come someone touch on the maintenance costs of those bikes (replacing top ends and such?)? There is always the option of a four stroke as well and I guess there are a lot more options there, though as i said I would prefer a two stroke. I saw a few nice xr400s, some crf450x's (is that overkill?), a REALLY nice klx 300 (my dad had one of these), some others also. Basically, can someone chime in on what would be the best bike to get? Does this all just boil down to preference? Basically I am just looking for a reliable, fairly powerful bike that I could pick up for a few grand and is preferably 2 stroke but doesn't have to be. Thanks!
