When did the problem start? Right after the tire was installed, or later?

My stock, no-fairing '05 easily makes the 90s, verified by GPS. I do duck down for speed runs though.

Hi Tyler, welcome to the board!

When you get the electrical problem fixed, be prepared to rebuild the carbs. I don't mean to be discouraging, but it's the nature of these bikes.

It should do better than 70 by a longshot, but if you want to know about the top speed, you have to open the throttle fully.

Be careful when making top speed runs!

I'm glad to hear about the progress! My parents happened to buy an inexpensive little car that they didn't need just after I had a couple crashes. It was pretty obvious who it was meant for. I...

Neat. Does it work in the fork lock?

I got a cheap blank and the local hardware store guy wouldn't take any money after he made the key for me. It works fine in the ignition switch and seat...

I assume our 250s have a full-flow oil filter system, but I guess I've never verified that. Assuming so, chips in the sump from a threading tap can't get into the engine's bearings. If they're...

Very good advice. Filing just ten thousandths of an inch off will give you several more valve adjustments. If you're not confident about doing this, I'm sure a machine shop would grind off ten or...

My pregen is keyed to keep the position fixed while you tighten things up. Check and see if yours is the same. If you're way off, you can put it together without the keyed parts engaged.

What's the battery voltage with everything on as usual, and you rev the engine to something like 3,000-4,000 rpm?

Stick the end back in the tach and see if it's easy to turn. If it's hard to turn or locked up you know you need to fix that before installing the new cable.

Humor and perspective: I played golf with a co-worker a few times 35 years ago. When he flubbed a shot he'd sometimes say "Oh well, 100 years from now, nobody'll give a sh**."
