Got one at Aerosuds up here locally. Yes it really makes a difference moving the trailer around. My trailer fix up project is turning into to trailer restoration project. More rust that I counted on.

Thank Hondo (since I can't ever spell you real name right), I got it scraped and ground and welded and painted, just in time for the first snow flakes. Hey it's just a trailer after all. It did have a couple of places where it was rusted through but not bad enough I am going to worry about it. It's good for another 13 years now. Well as soon as I get plates and a new tire.

The spare 13' tire that came with mine was not a real trailer tire, so I bought one at Discount tire- they stock them.

I'm surprised anyone stocks a tire that size.

Checking to see if anyone have a flywheel puller, M30X1.0 R.H. Internal thread that I can borrow for a couple of weeks while I gather all the things I need for a top end rebuild of a 2003 Yamaha WR250F?

I'll buy one if I need to but this is one of those tools that will probably only get used once..

Is that the same one for a 09 WR450? If so I have one you can use

Let me know if you think it will work

Found out the '09 uses a different one, thanks anyway though.

I ended up buying one from amazon since I had a gift card I needed to use anyway... So if anyone needs to borrow it, let me know .

WR250F Valve Shims

I'm in need of some 7.48mm diameter shims for my WR250F and am wondering where I should get them.

I've heard before you can just buy the shims you need, maybe even trade in your used ones for different ones. Anyone know of a shop that might do this?

Or maybe someone here bought a kit, used it once, and maybe you want to trade/sell me some?

First time owning a bike with the shim under bucket design, so I'm trying to figure this all out still. Thanks!

I go to SUN Honda (CRF shims are the same) and they are about 5 bucks a shim and they have always had them in stock. If you are further down south hit up Vickery, it has been a while but Im almost sure they have some.

Regarding trailer tires, I'm buying direct from a manufacturer at work, and may well be able to get you a good price - mounted or not. It sure helps the bottom line to buy in quantity, yanno! Iff'n ya think I can help, just call me at the shop with the size needed. 303/952-7400.........I'm there 8:AM - 5:PM, and lunching 11:30 - 12:30.

Thanks for the info. Performace Cycle sells them for $6.95 ea. At that price, for 5 shims, it would be half the cost of an entire kit..

You already have the bike right how far out are the valves? Most of the time you can swap a few around and only need to buy one or 2. If you know what sizes you need let me know I have 4-5 at the house.
