Compression lever on my 2002 yz250f

Recommended Posts

I took the spark plug out and cleaned it and ever since I've done that I have t needed to use the lever does this mean something's wrong? It's a fresh rebuild it runs fine

why did you have to take out and clean the spark plug on a fresh or recent rebuild? I assume you bought a new spark plug for the rebuilt in which case i agree with SunrUh... unrelated. How hard is it to kick over without the *DEcompression lever pulled? Maybe what you need is a new spark plug.

 

Cleaning spark plugs is a thing of the past... i mean for those who still ride two strokes hehehe

Well I just bought it and it's working now I flooded it out and that's why I cleaned it but I let it set over night and now it starts up just fine and yeah for a 2 stroke but this is a 4 stroke lol but thanks man appreciate the time but I do have a question is it hard to rebuild a rear shock?

it is not very easy.

 

there are 2 major tricky things, 1 getting all the air out and 2 you need a nitrogen tank with an adjustable regulator to set the pressure on the bladder.

you need to work on your reading comprehension too.

 

 

 

p.s. the rear shock IS actually very easy and NO you do NOT need a nitrogen tank or an adjustable regulator. What you do is you put the shock back together and go to any motorcycle or dirt bike shop. Even a bike dealer. And for $10-15 they will refill it with Nitrogen for you.

 

If you own a mountain bike and have the shock air pump tool then you can dial *down* your pressure till you like it. ie overfill and dial down. If anything adding a little air with the nitrogen is no big deal.  Air and N2 have about the same characteristics... air being 80% N2 anyways. I've even ran straight air for long periods of time and no, nothing blew up nor degraded nor anything. Just fyi.
