    how in Gods green earth did you guess that. it is winchester and this was he first and only time ive gotten to ride this thing because well i kind of broke the clutch case but one stop shop down in reeds port had an extra one. im guessing you are around here if you guessed that. but that was the day before the second foot surgery that iv'e had. (the surgery did nothing).

    Yes I'm from Oregon & have been riding our dunes since 1985. I got my 86 TRX in 1988 when I was 13 & still have the same R today. We have an annual West coast 250R meet at Winchester in August, you should check it out. You can find the info for it on the other 250R site.

    Yeah Mr. Eyeball! We know those dunes from years of riding them. I personally have been riding them for 20 years. You should definitely come to the 250R gathering in August.

    ok that makes sense all the people that actually know about 250r's are all from the oregon dunes. ive only been there twice but can remember every dune there. yeah that was the day before my surgery and i crashed it and ran over my feet almost breaking both my legs. didnt though. and i put a hole in the case the day before. but got it all sorted out a few weeks later and went to change the oil in it and broke the crank case.Click image for larger version.

ID:	61999 you cant really see it in the picture but its just left of the oil drip. took my whole motor apart and rebuilding it. should be getting my cases back in a couple weeks and then i will powder coat them and have the whole motor put back together.

    There are people that powder coat cases & have been successful at it but Honda recommends not heating the cases to above 220 degrees or somewhere close to that & most pc ovens bake parts around 400 degrees. Personally the only coating I'd put on an R engine or any other bike engine for that matter is paint.

    Unless you meant 200C (Note the "C" for Celsius), their are NO PC that can be "put on around" 200F, 98% of PC is applied at 370F-390F, or close to 195-200C.
