Clearances for the 250 are: Valve clearance (cold) intake 0.05-0.10mm (0.0020-0.0039 in) exhaust 0.10-0.15mm (0.0039-0.0059 in.) So the intake was loose and the exhaust was tight. That's fairly normal for a 1st adjustment. The question now is do

Saw a little rain the night before last. Nice soaking rain. Mountains have been getting soaked with daily showers. Here at the house we could use a bit more. RHI is running 55% in the AM diving to 25% in the afternoon. Moist for here when aftern

Oh yes, projects! Forgot about them. 8k Lbs of 15 Lb blocks moved twice. 60' of wall. 20k Lbs of 70 Lb blocks moved twice. Getting the layout correct is what sucks. About 60' of wall 48" at highest point including 2 radial bends.

14 years is really old for a motorcycle battery. I'd replace it and check the charging system as spooky suggests. If it's still not working, we'll go from there.

I'm glad to see someone making this part. Symptoms are the bike will start but won't idle properly. All depends on how bad the crack is.
