Nope, no link. I wonder if the PO also lowered the spring rate? I can check my spares to see if I still have the old spring. Not sure of its rate, but I think it was stock. Yours free if I still have it and you want it.

Want some free plastics and airbox?

Kyle, if you would, measure the ID of the open end and the OD of the closed end and then eye to eye. I don't have one specifically for a yz250, but I have a couple others and you never know.

I'll have to check it. Don't think I have anything to measure with though. Most of my tools are in sj

Put on a new front tire last night after cleaning all the mud of the bike from yesterday's sloppy ride. Another Bridgestone M59; took the last one off after 891 miles/48.5 hrs.

I'm getting much better and changing tires with the Tubliss system. At this point I would say it's actually easier than wrestling with a UHD tube.

Damn that thing looks great CJ. I'd love to have a 2-smoke for Stony.

I would like to go back to a stock pipe. My Gnarly is gnarled and dented and it's all bottom to mid, then the bike dies on top. Which is fine for tight single track.

I put the new petcock in the XR100 and it's good to go with no leaking. It's back on craigslist.

Sold my stock 19" rear wheel. That means I'll probably get another 18" and have one set up for a UHD tube and one with a Tubliss.

Kenda Parker on Tubliss? Hybrid on tube? Vice versa?

Did first valve check on the WR. No adjustment needed. Spark plug was rusty. :| How the hell does water get THERE? The plug/coil seals the opening at the top of the valve cover. The drain hole was not clogged...

Then I was so bored that I recut the worn frame protection stickers I made, and put those on again. Byke says I'm "anal" and he likes that.

I'd be curious what you think of the Kenda Parker. Have you run it yet? Its one of the few desert tires I dont have any experience with. I was going to try it this past winter in Baja, but went back to the tried and true Maxxis desert IT. Was less than impressed with the wear on the Desert IT this time. Dont know if they changed the compound on it or what. Pretty much toast after this years trip. Just about all offroad, less than 150-75 miles on the pavement (and aired up for that short bit). I remember them lasting longer previously. Then again, I didt get any flats and did put 800 + miles on it. Dunno... Considered the Motoz Desert IT, but you can buy 2 Maxxis, and 3 Kenda Trackmasters for the price of one of those...

Was thinking of doing that myself. What material are you using for your frame protectors?

You can buy large sheets of sticker material at some Moto shops in various colors, I got white. Try cycle gear. It's not ideal, too thin. Now I'm building up a couple layers. I made a template with blue maskng tape and cut with scissors. Make the template way bigger than you think you need. Wrap it around corners so that the edges don't lift or peel.

Took out the lowering link from the new (to me) beastie I purchased yesterday and put in the stock linkage, freshly greased.



The bike also has a tall seat and I have legs like Cotton Hill. Look at all the fucks I give.



This bike has a Pirelli MT-43 trials-like rear, so new it still has sipes. And a full titanium exhaust, header to muffler. I've got a quiet insert coming but if it doesn't work, it's going up for sale, or better yet getting crushed. I'm debating whether to put a mousse in the front with a Kenda Parker DT.

I'm also looking for a rack that will let me use my Wolfman beta bag and not melt it on the muffler.

Took the carb. off my step-sons 2001 yz426 to clean & make some adjustments to make it more friendly,according to what I saw on the internet, I'm going to have my hands full getting it to start and idle better but, there is a solution so, we'll see.
Started the re-assembly of my 2003 gasgas de300,can anyone tell me WHY it came with head and taillight and a brake light switch and a fork lock yet it ( as far as I know) is not at least 49 state legal for the street? Hopefully I'll have it going for stony., it sure is a fun woods bike and waaaaaaaaay better than my old trusty rusty dr350.
