Re: How to improve brakes? (Warning: rambling)

Skip housed the CRF I now own in my garage for a year or two a few years ago. During that time, we wrestled with a front brake problem on it for a while. They just didn't grab all that well and you could take the lever all the way to the bar. We bled, reverse bled, hung the whole system overnight, e...

Re: CRF250X dual sport converting

I forgot how much of a PITA working on this CRF is. I pulled the carburetor off today and cleaned it, dumped the old gas in my old truck with a fresh tank of fuel in it, put fresh gas in after I had the carburetor back in, and hooked the battery charger to it so I could fire it up. It fired no probl...

Re: CRF250X dual sport converting

Brent, is this the harness you're referring to? https://www.bajadesigns.com/products/wiring-harness-switch-off-road-bikes-universal.asp Then a Squadron Sport headlight with mask, a 3-wire tail light, and two hydraulic brake switches is all I need, right? https://www.bajadesigns.com/products/Squadron...

Re: CRF250X dual sport converting

Nice, I'll look into that. That's really about all it needs. I'd be fine with even a standard H4 headlight for as much as I'd actually use it. The OEM tail light is a little line of LEDs and it's 2-pin only, but there are drop in LED tail/brake lights for it. https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-8smH...

CRF250X dual sport converting

I just picked up a CRF250X with a bunch of goodies on it already. I've ordered a few things for it already, but it will need more if I want to DS it. I do not have a MSO, but I can get a BOS if I need it. I would like to get it plated (South Dakota?). Here's what I've bought for it so far: New front...

Re: Shorten o-ring chain?

I would think that if you used a smaller diameter punch or tool to press the peened pin through that you might be able to get it out in a form good enough to re-peen again after insertion. The side plate you push the peened pin through would probably be destroyed, but if you have plenty of links it ...

Re: 2021 DAMN reunion 22-23 May @ Mtn Ridge

It's looking like my stay will be limited this year. I have a class that Friday that runs until 3 in Gaithersburg. The kids will all be gone for the weekend. I might just swing by Saturday morning and head home Saturday night at this point.

2003 KTM 450 EXC

2003 KTM 450 EXC STREET titled as a 2001 520 SX because that’s what the frame (and VIN) is from. All other parts are from a 2003+ 450 EXC. 131.6 hours on a frame up rebuild including top and bottom end motor rebuild by Dave Hopkins (the RFS Guru). DJH’s work done on the motor includes a welded crank...
