That depends on what you are using it for. Obviously, if you are dirt biking, you should use a dirt bike, and otherwise use a street bike. Start out with what you are going to use the most - dirt (freestyle) or street racing.

1990 dr 250s(street) switching back to dirt only. what electrical do I have to leave on the bike for it to start. I have removed lights and horn. Removing the wiring harness and battery.


At a a minimum, you will need the magneto (inside left engine cover), the regulator/rectifier (right side, under seat -- has fins on it), the CDI (under seat, at front of airbox), and enough wiring harness to connect the 3. You should put a large capacitor in place of the battery. You will need to jump the sidestand and clutch safety switches, as removing them will cause a no-start condition.

Remove seat


All bikes are different. Some dirt bikes unscrew, most street bikes unclip. Sometimes theres a cable latch in the back near the license plate or along the sides of the rear forks.

Oil change intervals for motorcycles depend a great deal on your riding conditions and riding style. For lower-revving street bikes, I often change my oil about every 2000 miles (~3200 km). However, someone with a sport bike who regularly revs their engine closer to the redline, I would suggest a more frequent change interval. Off-road / dirt bikes should have their oil changed sooner because of the dusty conditions. The oil is still full of lubricants, but it is contaminated with dust and dirt that clogs the filter and eventually goes right into the engine, increasing wear. I can't offer much guidance for dirt bike oil change intervals.

All these digits are codes, you can look them up on line. Hope this helps.

Engine oil getting mix to the radiator tank


If you are riding a dirt bike you probably have a leaking water pump seal allowing transmission oil into the antifreeze. If the motorcycle is a four stroke street bike the leak is probably in the head gasket.

How do i no wo model my bike is


Well if it looks like that picture, it's a dirt bike, not legal for street use. If it has head lights and blinkers, it is a dual sport. The engine size is stamped into the head. Like .125 liter or .250 liter. I think the dual sport is a KZ and the dirt bike is KX. That is Kawasaki.

How to set timming on a 2003 Honda XR80 dirt bike?


This is the closest manual to your bike I can find.
http://www.autorepairmanuals.biz/site/57...
As you can see, it covers from 1979 - 2003 - Honda rarely change their engine configurations when they make something that works.
This manual was probably last printed in 2003 - and later year bikes just added updated pages (Honda does that quite often to save on re-printing new manuals).
The XL model is exactly the same as the XR, except the XL has additional components to make it street legal - battery, head light, tail light, turn signals, horn and street legal tires

I have contacted New York State Department Of Motor Vehicles and this is their answer.

You cannot operate these devices on sidewalks, public streets or highways in NYS. These devices are classified as motor vehicles, but the devices do not have the correct equipment or design to operate on roadways. If you operate an unregistered motor vehicle on a street or a highway in NYS, law enforcement officials can arrest you and give you a ticket for the violation of several traffic laws. The DMV web site has more information about motorized devices.
Mopeds
You cannot register or legally operate a limited-use motorcycle (moped) in NYS unless the DMV certifies the device for registration and operation. The DMV web site has more information about Mopeds.
All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs)
You cannot register an ATV unless it complies with the definition of an ATV in the DMV brochure, ""ATVs - Information for Drivers and Owners."
