Wow, never thought I'd see this happen. Might I ask why you're going away from the Yammie?

also for sale

I think I'll bring up my own for sale posts here now then too. You know and you've seen the bike, now own a (major) part of it or the whole damn thing.

Could you PM me

I just got a WR250R and I need skidplate, rack, and maybe some other goodies. Mine is (now) bare bones stock.

Thanks

If that's a low Seat Concepts seat let me know what you want for it!

Just picked up a 2008 WR250R.....

Crawdaddy, I'd be interested in your airbox if you part her out.

Have a friend that needs one for an airbox project.

Thanks man

Did you ever get the "final answer" on your compression loss of the rebuild?

Read the last paragraph(under Update:) to see the correct FMF part number is 011393. Here is the link to FMF http://www.fmfracing.com/Products/MX/601 . Let us know how it works.
Thanks, and I realize I'm probably way over thinking this. BUT the picture from the FMF site corresponding with that part # 011393 shows a bag of bulk packing material. Everything I have read online shows people using a sheet or pillow type packing kit, hence my continuing confusion.

Fmfs site is likely just a generic picture the stuff they show is for 2smokes.

Shop Manual

Without searching through the entire thread for comments, what's recommended in terms of a shop manual?

I see Haynes has one...how is it? I know on some models they can be hit and miss. Can always spring for the Yamaha manual, but it's 3x the price. Mostly looking for torque values, wiring diagrams, etc...hopefully not going to have to worry about a major rebuild of anything.
