Hahaa! We'll see.
    hah! too funny. i just remember the new 'cooling fins' and Tim telling me he really likes them, was on his second or thrid set. didn't know it was a new rev of the M59.

    speaking of being a Tire Princess, i need to score a sand tire for Wick use. bummer i can't get the magical MX410 in 18" gonna have to try the Dunlop X11 Geomax instead.

    You can have this 18Ē one for $65 if we run into each other to hand it over...I used it for just a few laps at Southwick, works absolutely awesome. Changed it out for a woods ride and now sold the bike so I have no use for it.

    New to me Ď14 yz250 has a 19Ē rear wheel. Rode it today at MX23. Iím not sure what the expert who owned it before did to it but Iíve almost looped it by mistake twice already! Flywheel weight is on order...

    Adjust the ignition timing first, it's free.

    It runs flawlessly, everyone I know who rides woods with one has a flywheel weight installed so it’s an expected mod...

    He's saying you can adjust the ignition timing so that it doesn't hit as hard.

    Yup... it can still run flawlessly with an altered character too... and again, it's free and easily reversible.

    250MX 2t bikes are too much for me. I freely admit it. That's how I would die.

    450s at least let you know how and when they are going to spit you off. The 250Ts are like, oh you wanted to exit the corner? How bout you chase me down... on your face! But first, let's entertain the crowd with a flying W!

    Re: Bumpy tires again

    Isn't that the fun of riding one?

    The 450 is like being married and having sex every Wednesday.

    Re: Bumpy tires again

    Hahaha these last bunch of posts are hilarious!

    Josh, good idea on the timing; there is actually a good chance it’s off, since this was a grenaded motor that now has a new crank, cylinder, etc, and the previous owner said it was only ridden for a few heat cycles. I never rode a newish YZ250 before, and assumed it was just an animal of a motor but if I can tame it a little with timing, I will, and still will install the heavier flywheel.

    Re: Bumpy tires again

    finally went TUbliss end of last season and still loving it. only tried rear first but now i want one for the front. tire changes are easier although it's a different process. i'm running around ~5psi for most woods rides. super grip and no sloppy fold-over in corners with an IBEX.

    flats still suck but i put together a little repair kit for my pack with snausages + mini pump. have plugged one puncture so far, was at almost zero psi so kinda my fault.
