Naw it's the S model. As basic as it gets

Needed a cheaper car payment while in college but now I'm looking to get a small truck.

Added reply in a thread What Aspects of a Bike Do you Value Most... 2/3/2015 10:48 PM

Haven't spent enough time on all to really say what I value most. I get used to a bike and then hop on another and then certain qualities just shine and seem like the best thing that's ever been thought of. Then I get used to that, hop on my old bike ... more »

Added reply in a thread aluminum refresh 2/3/2015 10:22 PM

Ah, good stuff, thanks guys. I think I'll just knock out some of the high spots and try JB weld as a filler. Another question, do y'all think a gunmetal gray for the swingarm, linkage, and triple clamps would look good? I'd like to do something kind ... more »

Started new thread aluminum refresh 2/3/2015 7:21 PM

Just a quick question for you guys. I'm (slowly) working on a yz250 rebuild. The bike was used for woods riding by the previous owner and the swing arm has a few nice deep scratches in it that are less than pretty. I'm going to get it PC'ed but I'd like ... more »

Another thing I was just thinking about, sometimes when I ride (moto or mtb) a lot by myself I have a tendency to fall into bad habits. Certain body positions get comfortable and I think less about doing things the best way. Granted as you get faster

Added reply in a thread Input needed - 03 YZ250 Build 2/3/2015 12:09 PM

I have to somewhat agree. I can't say with certainty which is better because I can only compare a steel framed 125 to an aluminum framed 250, so the power affects the handling but ergonomically I preferred the 125. Again, different bikes but just my ... more »

Did you have any valving done to the suspension? It seems like your nervousness and apprehension is probably affecting that throttle hand and perhaps you're not staying on the gas all the way through. I'm assuming you ride a 450? What kind of terrain/dirt ... more »

Ya I've been a fan ever since I used to watch him ripping on an 85 back in the day and I feel confident he'd appreciate this letter and would hook the kid up with an autograph or something. Unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to make it to the Dallas ... more »

Added reply in a thread no respect..no respect at all 2/2/2015 1:12 PM

This same crap talking and disrespect is seen by track owners and operators as well. Online bashing because the tracks aren't prepped enough or too much, purposely damaging property because they get mad about track conditions, cussing at staff because ... more »

Hey guys, I help run a South Texas motocross track called Cycle Ranch. Recently we got a letter in the mail from a kid in Missouri who's favorite rider is Kyle Cunningham. While Kyle is a Texas native, he isn't really local to us in San Antonio and we've ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2000 YZ 250 Smoker Project 11/9/2014 7:05 PM

Bummer to hear man. I ran into a similar deal where the grease and grime uncovered more and more issues. Like Ace, I plan on keeping this bike a long time, so replacing a side case and cylinder is in my future. Definitely a bummer because it's going

Added reply in a thread 2000 YZ 250 Smoker Project 10/22/2014 8:10 PM

I removed a stripped drain bolt with a left hand threaded tap. It was a pain, I clamped it with some vice grips, pushed on that drill as hard as I could, and had to go really slow while turning on the vice grips at the same time. It worked but I'd rather ... more »

Added reply in a thread Project bike! 05 yz250 10/22/2014 7:58 PM

Haha, that's a little much. A stripped drain bolt certainly isn't worth getting into a rage about either. I plan on keeping this bike until it's vintage so it's whatever. I'll buy and sell others, really leaning towards KTM, but I'm a YZ man at heart ... more »

Added reply in a thread Project bike! 05 yz250 10/22/2014 10:23 AM

Anyone have any idea how that happens? I was talking about it with one of the guys I work with, and our guess is the previous owner tried to take the motor out before and maybe took a pry bar to it, or he just dropped the cylinder when doing a top end. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Project bike! 05 yz250 10/22/2014 9:15 AM

Cycle Ranch MX has been a little busy lately so this project has gone nowhere so far. After doing a little more cleaning I uncovered a huge crack, so I'll be replacing the cylinder in addition to the left side engine case. No telling what the inside

I heard they were making a come back. Always great to hear of a track reopening rather than closing down!

Oh it's good views of the track that you want? We do alright!

Mind you, the track is not prepped or rain washed in a few of the pictures. Our covered grand stands are so close to the action ... more »
