    I will weigh it tonight.

    you really ought to have a go with mousses when you get a chance. I love them, i can smash them into anything without fear of a flat or denting the rim and they are half the weight of a UHD tube

    either way, you are probably right.

      Hmm good call.. I'll give it a bit more time. I did like how easy i could do a slight loft and then land the wheel down in a different place.

      I'm scared of trying to change them :s I really suck at doing tyres..

      Just realised you need the R axle to use the R spacer which sucks... there are other spacer kits for the X though...

        i just came in from the shed....the bike is coming along nicely, RMATV freight is fast, but i wish my parts were here yesterday!

        speedo drive spacer is only 123g,
        the complete axle, spacers, nut is 406g...

        hardly worth spending any coin on getting rid of it....ride through a cowshit and you will pick up more weight than that!

          Well I just tried the flywheel. $47 shipped.

          I used a oil filter wrench to hold it and it came off easily. I did have an old flywheel tool to pop it off the crank though that i bought years ago which made that bit easy too.

          Difference is nice, I'd say worthwhile. Blip the throttle and it reacts instantely and sounds angrier. Also the second you touch the throttle in first the front wheel comes up, no hesitation at all. Makes for alot of fun out in the yard doin little foot high wheelies every time i touch the throttle

          Now regarding the gearbox, i did some research and it's actually wider ratio than the 450X or the yammy's. 5th is about 2.85 less reduction over 1st, where as your basic jap mx'er is 2.0 and a 450x is 2.75. 350sxf about 2.15 and 450sxf 2.30

          Still liking the lower gearing for the extra aggression, but I think i might like 13/51 as it approaches the point of taming the extra hit. Still gives you 130km/h top speed which is enough for a little 250 (and still higher than a TE310 6 speed).

            I've also ordered an STR 1/2" lowering kit which lowers your footpegs via the bracket. (directly down, but not backward like the fastways do)



            I'm finding the X footpegs need a few degree more angle forward. I've modified my current lowboy mounted fastways, but once i've got this lowering kit i can try the pivot pegs in a true low position (their "low position" is really the same as honda stock"). Thinking about modifying them to allow 0-20 deg forward rotation but block out the 0 to -20 rotation. Drives me crazy, especially trying to do stand wheelies.

            I can't recall but i dont think the fastways dropped the pegs as much as they said they would.. maybe 8mm ? will need to measure again, have a feeling it might be less like 4mm. I'll measure up the STR when i get them.

              the flywheel sounds cool....where did you get it from Disco?
              i am keen to try one, if i ever get to ride this bike!

              i did not measure, but i think the fastways in the standard mount position are lower than stock....i am going to stick with the stock pegs for a bit, might fit the fastways later, but i git the shits with them denting the rear brake mount washer, causing it to bind and wind out the mount bolt. It sheared the split pin a couple times on me

              My shock should arrive tomorrow from Dave, also my .45 fork springs

              the .45 fork springs will be plusher than the .42 stockers, the .42's have 9mm preload and the .45's have 5mm (7.56kg preload weight vs 4.5kg preload weight)

              i hope to get in a ride on tuesday.

                  how much did the lighter flywheel affect the engine inertia for stalling, tractability etc?
                  have you had it in the bush yet, or just a squirt around the yard?

                  at the price i reckon i will try one for myself anyway, sounds easier, and more likely to give the result i want than going to a 19" rear wheel

                    what year model did you get Disco....
                    i noticed they seem to be listed as 04-05 and 06-09 model flywheels,
                    i would not have thought there would be much difference?
                    i guess the X would be the 04-05 R, if they were different...

                      I think they're all the same weight wise.. or at least in fitment.

                      Mine is off a 2008. I'll take it for a spin tomorrow to check it out, but my bike has an autoclutch in it so stalling shouldnt be an issue (it wasn't on my R).

                        Neil if a Yammy wheel will fit in the Honda with minimal fkn around, and you do want a 19" wheel, I'm considering putting an 18" rear on the YZ.

                          Took it for a hundred kay spin yesterday.... it definately stalls easier. Normally would have had about 2 stalls with the autoclutch, but had about 4 instead. Usually flame out kind of stalls (hitting the gas hard as releasing the brake). Not sure about stalls when chugging down low with the rekluse... as they obviously can't happen.

                            I just purchased a 2008 250x with just 500km's on it. So far ive only added a acerbis plastic bash plate and a durele lower seat.
                            Im 80kg without gear and 85kg with gear, the manual states suspension is ideal for poeple weighing 68kg-73kg. I find the suspension very plush but im pretty sure its bottoming out whenever i push the bike to its limits.

                            Alot of good info in this post, especially bout the triples on the 250x not being 22mm. IVe searched around and found these - http://www.crfsonly.com/catalog/prod...oducts_id/1066
                            Im thinking bout getting them, what size are the stock bars on a 250x and whats the diff between the bar mount options?

                              5kg of gear, boots and helmet weigh more than that, you'd be one of these blokes then.

                                LMAO!! Thats what Darwin riders look like!

                                Seriously, try riding in Darwin during the wet, disgusting humidity. I just wear a T shirt ,helmet, camel back,gloves, sneakers and shorts, about 5 extra kilos.
