    Checking to see if anyone have a flywheel puller, M30X1.0 R.H. Internal thread that I can borrow for a couple of weeks while I gather all the things I need for a top end rebuild of a 2003 Yamaha WR250F?

    I'll buy one if I need to but this is one of those tools that will probably only get used once..

    Let me know if you think it will work

    Found out the '09 uses a different one, thanks anyway though.

    I ended up buying one from amazon since I had a gift card I needed to use anyway... So if anyone needs to borrow it, let me know :evil.

    I'm in need of some 7.48mm diameter shims for my WR250F and am wondering where I should get them.

    I've heard before you can just buy the shims you need, maybe even trade in your used ones for different ones. Anyone know of a shop that might do this?

    Or maybe someone here bought a kit, used it once, and maybe you want to trade/sell me some?

    First time owning a bike with the shim under bucket design, so I'm trying to figure this all out still. Thanks!

    I go to SUN Honda (CRF shims are the same) and they are about 5 bucks a shim and they have always had them in stock. If you are further down south hit up Vickery, it has been a while but Im almost sure they have some.

    Regarding trailer tires, I'm buying direct from a manufacturer at work, and may well be able to get you a good price - mounted or not. It sure helps the bottom line to buy in quantity, yanno! Iff'n ya think I can help, just call me at the shop with the size needed. 303/952-7400.........I'm there 8:AM - 5:pM, and lunching 11:30 - 12:30.

    Thanks for the info. Performace Cycle sells them for $6.95 ea. At that price, for 5 shims, it would be half the cost of an entire kit..

    You already have the bike right how far out are the valves? Most of the time you can swap a few around and only need to buy one or 2. If you know what sizes you need let me know I have 4-5 at the house.

    True, hadn't thought of that.. All five are tight, but haven't taken the cams off and measured the shims yet. Will do that tonight and I'll know exactly what I need then. Thanks!

    Try Austin Hardwoods, near Mississippi and Santa Fe.

    They carry lots of specialty veneer plywoods...

    You'd think if any city on the planet would have recycled insulation made from pop bottles in stock it'd be Boulder. I proposed that Boulder isn't as green as it pretends to be.

    It is all a ruse. :deal
