Top-end rebuilds are a necessary maintenance task associated with high performance off-road two-stroke motorcycle ownership. The common belief is that performing a top-end rebuild is a simple task that anyone can do, which is true, however, the devil is in the details!

How to Sell a Dirt Bike (and get TOP Dollar)
I just sold 2 bikes on Facebook. I had 2 buyers come from 3 and 4 hours away to Kansas City Metro to pay me top dollar – when there were lots of closer bikes. I was amazed they came from so far. However, there are some horrible listings out there. Some people just don't know how to sell. I figure I have purchased and sold around 20 bikes in my day. I think that makes me a Subject Matter Expert (SME). 1) Clean it – a) Like you have never cleaned it before. Power wash. Foam
Front fork and/or head lift jack and stand
I've always been able to jack up the front of street bikes at the frame or engine to do tire changes, fork maintenance, etc. It appears on my new Versys 1000 this would be difficult to impossible without Kawasaki's proprietary jack and adapters. Looking for advice on a front end jack and am thinking I need one that lifts the head or triple tree. Any advantage to being also able to lift from the forks? Pitbull makes one that does both but it's a bit spendy at $230. Theirs for head lift only
Who's out riding this summer??
Ladies! I've been lurking a few months now. This Thumpette forum isn't as active as I thought it would be. Thought I'd give it a bump start or something. Now that we are deep into the days of summer, who's out riding? Where have you been riding? On what bike(s)? Are you riding with other women? Any breakthrough moments? I'll start. I've been riding essentially 5 months now, so I'm a new rider. Given my experience level, I've been bumming around in fields/parking areas practicing clu
Second annual Apple Ride 10/05/19
Welp...my friend Karen (KJ) and I had so much fun on our first Apple Ride last October, that we decided to make it an annual event. So KJ made a Facebook event out of it and invited some people to join in. I did not expect many riders to respond, because it is somewhat of a "cross-over" event, meaning that it wasn't a full on trail or DS ride, but rather a DS ride with a trip to an orchard to pick bags of apples stuck in the middle of it. I don't think that that would be appealing to a lot o

2007 400EX has repeating miss at idle and periodic stall
OK so did a new topend for guy. New cylinder, new piston, valve stem seals, adjust valve. Start her up. Idling beautiful as she warms for breakin. turn choke off, idles down and then boom ..a random repeating miss. Almost to the point of a stall. very distinct but random. Then the miss became a stall. Also as this symptom rears up the idle needs turned up all the sudden to keep it running. Its bottomed out now and that's not right. Carb is completely clean (Stock Jetting)
