Nice video! I figured the only stuff you'd have of me was throwing a stick to the dogs or following me with my turn signal on...(sorry 'bout that Jason, that had to be annoying as hell.) next time I'll just turn.

Thanks, there was a ton of useless video because I had the camera aimed too low. Like the ride by that featured a bunch of headless riders going by.

We all forget to turn off the turn signals, I was just trying to be nice. Really IMHO the only people in an off road group ride who should use their signals are the first and last riders. In congested areas it is obviously more important so cages know you are ALL turning.
Oh and it was nice to finally meet you.

Any bike shop should be able to fix it or give it to me to give to Heath to fix. Shop may be quicker.

You'd had more fun if your bike was running properly. Your bike has a massive lean spot at idle that is causing it to be erratic when idling and has no power at the initial throttle opening. All I had to do is ride once, it was no wonder you had so much trouble. You need to look for one or more of the following...

Fuel screw, plugged or out of adjustment? Most bikes have the screw set at 1.5 turns from closed.

Pilot Jet, Plugged or too small. Most off-road (non-mx) bikes are leaner than Allie McBeall

Air leak between the carb and cylinder.

You can see if it's an air leak by getting it warmed up and spraying some starting fluid arond the intake parts without blowing yourself up. If there is a leak, the bike should surge or even slow if the fluids temporarily plug the offending leak.

I would recommend WD-40. It saves on the eyebrows. You will still notice a change in idle if it is pulling air in around an area.

Thanks! I normally carry a digital SLR when I'm on the Spyder, but I'm going to go minimal on the WR250R and stick to the iPhone. It's tough to be artsy with this thing since I have no control over settings.

the good news:

My Steelers defeated the Patriots today by a score of 25-17!

I drank a six of Yuengling while eating wings and watching said game.

My XR250R, otherwise known as Dora, ran today, for the first time in 6 or 8 weeks.

the bad news:

Looks I'm gonna have to put some more money into Dora, as her clutch seems to be pretty much gone. The friction plates had a little life left in them (say 1 or 2 32nds) but upon reassembly, I had to adjust the cable all the way out to get any kind of action at the lever...

I was looking at some clutches on ebay and saw one that said something about it being "race-ready, no need for pre-soaking". Does that mean I should have soaked the friction plates in oil or something? Or did I just do something wrong when I put her back together? As it is right now, the clutch will not hold the bike back while in gear and there's not much action at the lever, but it will let me shift.

thoughts/opinions/advice?

Next Saturday I am thinking of doing a get together / garage day / ride for the western Ohio people. If the weather stays nice we can meet up in Plain city at the Mc Donnalds at the corner of 161 and rt 42 at 10am. From there we'll ride the abandoned RR bed towards Urbana. The RR bed is an easy ride with ony a few challenging areas where the gravel gets very deep and washes out easily. There are go arounds for these areas since the RR bed parallels the road. After wards we can head back to my place and hang around the garage to chat, help with maintenance needs, or if the yard is dry play around practicing log crossings, controlled riding or whatever.
I'll pick up some hot dogs and buns to cook on the grill, some soda pop and snacks. Anyone who doesn't want to do the before ride PM me and I'll get you directions so we can meet up after the ride.

Since it's an end of the season event if the weather looks better for Sunday we'll kick it back a day to avoid rain if needed. Questions or suggestions?

That I don't know. However, it would seem that oil would penetrate the clutch plates in time. I do know the one time I did them on the KLR I was told to presoak the plates. I don't know if you can just pour oil over them thru the fill hole at accomplish this.

If it worked before you took it apart, it should work now unless something is out of sorts inside such you put a steel plate 1st instead of fiber (or which ever goes 1st in that motor)? Do the fiber plate tabs line up with the wear marks in the basket? Is the pressure plate seated properly? Some clutch baskets are "timed" with the pressure plate, check that too.

Also, adjust at the cases 1st, then the lever.

I wouldn't put a high dollar clutch in that bike unless you decide to put a big bore kit in it. I had 3 seasons of racing on my stock clutch and never touched it.

btw, if the wear marks are deep, they will cause a clutch to slip, file them flat.
