A few months ago, I replaced my stock clutch perch with an ASV C5 lever/perch/hotstart assembly. I'm really happy with it, but at the time of installation, I was a little nervous. When I pulled the stock clutch perch, I realized that the new perch didn't have the same clutch switch for the starter that the stock one has.

When I recently slapped some new graphics on my CRF250X, I asked my friends for tips as I'd never applied fancy graphics before, just stickers. I had heard about using Windex before, but I didn't fully understand how it worked. My friends said to spray the plastic with Windex, then slap the sticker on, position it, and let the Windex dry and the sticker will set perfectly.

Someone pointed out that my tail light wasn't working. I did a little digging on Thumper Talk and found this thread.

Since my battery is dead, I took it out. Without a working battery (or without one at all, in my case), the tail light doesn't work on the 250X. Whew! Now I don't have to worry about tracking down an electrical problem.

I recently installed a new Sunline Fuel Screw in my 2004 CRF250X. In order to do so, I had to break the carb loose from the airbox-to-carb boot and the carb-to-cylinder boot so that I could turn the carb out toward me to get to the bottom of it. Boots circled below, although airbox-to-carb boot is hidden behind frame.
