What brand of pads did you get ? I just got a set of EBC FA 152R for the rear, I can't find the EBC front pad #, do you have any idea what the front EBC # is? Neither front or rear is worn out yet but I like to have a spare set on hand. Thanks for any info you have.

Thanks for the reply, I found out it's EBC FA275 for the front for any future reference. I rode the XT250 up to garage day yesterday.

I usually use OEM parts only because I know that they work. There may be others that are better...I just haven't figured them out yet. I get my parts from the shop where I bought the bike, with the discount that I get since I bought the bike there and no shipping it is usually cheaper than on line.

I use this web site for reference (it is very useful for parts).

Mohican...Great place to ride. I go there often in the summer. We usually send a week or so camping there each year also.

12V Outlet Location

Has anyone found a clean location for a 12v power outlet? I would love to see some pics. I need to add one ASAP.

Thanks

Not a very good photo...it was the only one I had online that showed the outlet.

It's on the handlebars.
If you need a better photo no problem just ask.

Thanks USAIR, yes another pic would be helpful if it's not to much trouble. I like your hand guards, what brand are they? Are you running OEM tires?

Thanks for the help,
Gary

The hand guards are Acerbis Rally Pro.
And yes the tires OEM which are crap I have just abt worn them out.
I think I will go with some Kenda tires next.

Here's the 12v power outlet.
Wired to a 12v relay and is only on when the key is on.
And if you look real close upper right corner of the photo.
You see a switch for heated grips HI/LOW settings.
Also wired thru the relay...and they will kill a battery.




Just a wider shot.
But if you look to the left upper corner you see my camera mount.
Kinda looks like a C-clamp.

High idle

Hello all,

I just got an 08 with 1k and I love this thing. It seems to idle super high once it has warmed up. I have searched high and low and cannot find if this is normal or how to adjust it down. Forgive me for not reading the entire thread to see if this has been addressed.

Thanks all in advance,
J.P.

Hi JP,

left hand side of the bike, lower carb area you'll see a knob, with a cross head centre, that's the bit you need. Turn it clockwise and the idle increase, anti=clockwise and it slows.

Regards

Reggie
