    You know...I've changed my mind.
    Nice try Kawi, but please go back to the "drawing" board.I've bought your skis in the past ,So I know you can make a better 250.
    Kawi..Your really pissing off some good people.
    WORK IT OUT SOON!

    Region8--Why wont your Mustang ET. If your speed of 159 mph is correct you should be in the eight second range. Why wont it hook up?

    Interesting when I changed the plugs yesterday I noticed #3 appeared to run the leanest. Also, all 4 plugs showed signs of cylinder leakage around the porcelan.

    Whats happening to the SCs in the 250s? Is it bearing failure causing contact between the lobes and housing or sync gear failure? I could not have forseen any of these problems with this SC setup besides the belt slipping.

    Region8, sorry to hear about your luck man. I hope your dealer gets everything straight.

    One thing to watch out for is the SC dipstick. Mine broke off and couldve caused major damage. Just a fluke it was spotted and fished out during my 50 hr maint check. TN 250's SC dipstick broke too. Dlr changed the SC oil and we are leaving the dipstick out for now.

    Add more power. Add more rpms.... and a part that was basically on the edge to begin with is in the money zone.
