    McNutt Riding

    For those of you who ride McNutt, BMMC would like everyone to not ride the trails until after this storm system has passed and the mountain has had a chance to shed some of the water.

    Long Time Road Rider Thinking of Dual Sport Riding

    14 is the largest that fits, 13 is stock. 12 is fine if you have proper chain slack. 38000 km on mine with no swing arm damage. Maybe if you ran a 12 with the stock 43 rear this could happen. I have always had a 48 or 50 on the rear.

    Long Time Road Rider Thinking of Dual Sport Riding

    Sikorsky, the cheapest way to get better performance out of the WR250r is to change the the sprockets. With 12-48 gearing I have had it up to 120 kmph gps. You can not over rev the bike. It wants to be in the higher rpm range. With 13-50 gearing it will still pull 70 mph gps. I also bought the...

    Long Time Road Rider Thinking of Dual Sport Riding

    A stock WR250r is too called geared, even for road riding. Change the back sprocket to at lest a 46. I went with a 48 and then a 50, but also had a 12, 13 and 14 for the front. 12-50 will allow you to ride almost very thing at McNutt (except the red diamond trail) without having to slip the...

    WR250R Stator Recall

    I had the stator replaced today and over 1/2 the coils were toast. Never noticed any issues with the bike. So if you have been wondering whether you should have it done - yes it will fail at some point. I have ~ 22000 km on the bike.
