You shouldn't need a new basket. Metal and fiber plates plus springs if they got too hot.
Basket should be fine unless it got notched or horribly overheated.

The OEM clutch is OK but for only $1200 you could get a ripper clutch. Well worth the money if you do a lot of off road ripping.

Thanks guys. I'm sure it was my fault. Basket should be fine as you've noted...

emissions VA

Can someone tell me if the AIS removal effects the emissions test in Va?
And the FMF header and silencer?

Here is a pic of the entry point at the bottom of Shoe Creek. I was tempted, but I was alone, so I didn't cross. Doesn't look very threatening though, does it?

Thanks for the link GAS GUY! It was extremely well written and clear. I have an 08 w/ 2000 miles on it and already pretty deep grooves in the slider. I followed their instructions and the chain seems really tight after adjusting to their specs, as a guy who usually runs it pretty slack this seems sorta odd, but only time will tell. I ran the suspension through it's travel and adjusted at the tightest point.

Emission testing in Virginia? Wait that doesn't apply to where I live.

Looks like it is only required for the following cities/counties: Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William, Stafford, Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas or Manassas Park.

Being Father's Day weekend, I finally got out to ride both days this weekend. It was great. The one thing that stuck out to me was how happy I am, that I shelled out the money. for the rear shock rebuild. I was blasting through the sandy and tight south NJ whoops, and had no issues doing it.

I go for only 1/4 inch at the tightest point. Since I don't want to pull the linkage bolt for every adjustment, I made a gauge from 1 X 1 lumber. The gauge is made to fit tight at full swing arm extension, and it correlates to 1/4 inch at the tightest. Any change in rear sprocket size, or change at the threaded shock clevis will warrant making a new tool. I have 2400 miles of off road abuse and minimal marks on the original slider.

I'm sure the 1/2 inch would yield similar results, but changes in adjustment would need to be addressed promptly.

odometer+sprocket

Hi, I bought 2011 Wr250r earlier this spring. Previous owner had modded gearing (sprockets). The odometer reading and actual mileage are different. This is going to problem when I am doing Route(roll) Sheet events. Any suggestion? Thanks
