Computer fans for rads on Dirtbike?


kwbmxr123

i did This Recently to my YZ426F. i used a 14.4V Drill battery and 2 computer fans. The key is to getting a clean install so you do not make your bike look like trash and you do not get stuck on wires. :cripple: the biggest question that i had when looking how to make these fans was how long they would last. Mine last 4-5 Hours. In all of the trails I've done i haven't ever run out of Juice for them. When i am going fast i can flip a switch and shut them down, but i have never had too.

I have 2 computer fans on my 2012 WR450 that have been on the bike since new & never had a failure even when I had them mounted on the front of the radiators. I have them running constantly as most of my riding is done in tight technical woods riding. I take no special precautions when it is time to wash the bike which happens after every ride & I ride 3 out of 4 weekends. The computer fans can take a beating.

Great idea! My yz450 tends to run hot when I'm keeping pace with my little kids. I usually just ride ahead and then back and ahead and then back again. I'm gonna give this a try for sure

      I have two Honda CR250 cylinders for sale.
      The cylinders are 1998 models yet they fit 1992-2001 CR250 engines.
      I just got these cylinders back from millenium technologies.  I sent them in to get replated.  
      $400 each shipped to the lower 48 states.  Hawaii and Alaska will be extra.  If you want one or two shipped anywhere outside the USA then you’ll have to arrange shipping.
      If you have questions just ask.

      I am selling my 2001 yz426f(As is), I bought it used from private seller back in 2011.  I rarely used it at first, playing around in dirt areas and local OHV trails.  I began using it for bigger trail rides like Gorman in Hungry valley.  I hated the manual decompression. In 2015 I bought Hotcams stage 1 intake and exhaust cams for the auto decompression.  I had Motorcycle Tech in Upland, CA do the install.  They also installed a new Piston Ring and Intake valve.  Have work order paperwork and old parts from the job.  Last big ride was 2017 September, Kennedy Meadows.  Put on new tires before this ride along with fresh oil/filter and new air filter.  Bike ran like a champ and we made it up some some pretty nasty climbs first try 
      Bike has been sitting since then.  I've road it around the block a few different times.  It seems carb float bowl gasket is going bad or just dried up? When I started it today gas was leaking.  After I rode it around the block it no longer leaked.  Will check again tomorrow. 7/13/18
      *Update*
      Kicked over Friday and Sat. bowl was no longer leaking fuel.
      The Hand Grips are new. The front and rear fenders along with radiator shrouds are a year old.  Side # plate cracked as seen in picture.
      Still an awesome ol' powerful bike.
      Negatives are a heavy clutch pull and a grabby clutch.
      Selling because I've replaced it and have no intention of using it anymore.
      Pink in hand.
      I'm asking $2,000 OBO for the bike as is.
      No trades.
      Cash only please.
      Serious inquiries only.
      Thank you.

      Hello everybody,
      My name is Jake and Im new to TT. I just picked up a 2003 yz125 that needs a LOT of work. I was hoping that you all could help me find parts for this bike. Here are some things that I am searching for:
      complete donor bike. could be 99-04 yz125 that was wrecked, salvaged, etc. Also I am not an expert on yz125 part interchangability so if you all have any info on that topic that would be really helpful. For example, do a lot of yz250 parts interchange with the 125? What years are certain yz125 parts interchangable with the ones on an 03?  A donor motor. The motor on my bike is seized up and pretty rusty. I will be attempting to save as much of it as possible, but I need a clutch pack and top end (piston, ring, etc). The perfect donor motor would be a good motor with busted transmission (since my transmission seems to be fine). Rear Wheel. I dont have one at the moment. Hoping to find a good rim and hub assembly with maybe bad bearings or bad tire. Basically looking for something fixable here. Ive had some luck on ebay for the rear wheel but Im waiting to see if I cant find a donor bike that has a decent rear wheel. This will be an on-going project for me and I will be posting updates as I go. I would appreciate your help!

      I have a '02 yz85 and today I replaced the right side crank seal, head o-rings, and swapped out the head for a VHM performance head. I also put a FMF SST pipe on it with a FMF Shorty. The bike has been working perfectly all day, other than running poorly since i need to rejet. But no other problems then that. I came into the garage about 5 hours after riding, and noticed that when I turned the kickstart over, theres some grinding noise. It did not do this after I put it back together, it just started out of nowhere. While I was putting the clutch back together I noticed the shaft the clutch goes on moves in and out, I called my friend who has replaced the clutch on his 85 and he said it was normal and his was the exact same, so I didnt worry about it.  After I put it back together it was not making this noise, and didnt make it after riding either. Just started out of nowhere. Heres a vid to show what it sounds like. I don't remember it ever making this noise. I took the clutch apart to make sure nothing was wrong, I didnt find anything wrong except a little gasket maker that got onto the clutch since I put too much. Doesnt feel like theres any resistance while kicking it over, in the video the spark plug is out. Help?
