I though I was going crazy --- I ordered a top end off --- you know where - ebay.  2002 YZ85 all stock.


It came in quick and ran out to put my firends bike together - wrist pin too long!!!   After two weeks of back and forth with seller --- they say to send the kit back for refund.


Order kit two --- off ebay - yes I an crazy ... this time from a top rated seller - $20 more!!!


a week later .... the wrong wrist pin --- too long ... am I crazy.  the correct one is 38.34 mm or 1.5098 inches. Wiseco # S517


the one it was sent twice was 45.5mm.   Has anyone seen this too???

Use the old one. I think the wrist pin is way harder than the piston it runs in and will not be reduced in size nor strength.

I'm not surprised.  I received 2 Wiseco piston rings for the YZ144 and found them packaged wrong.  They were way too small, even for a 125!  Wiseco made it right so I give them some credit there.  However, the needle bearing that comes with the YZ144 top end kit from Wiseco is 3 mm too short!  Use the Wiseco 1013 needle bearing with that piston.  The lesson learned is to always double check everything.  Don't trust the machinist or parts manufacturers.  They are all human and make mistakes.  It is better to find out before blindly putting an engine together.

      A tiny clear rubber tube on bottom of carb.  On bottom sort of on side, by floats, the other end just hanging down.  Was it always like this? Or does the other end go somewhere?  Today after multiple trys with kick, choke on/off ,,,fuel keeps pouring out the tube.  This bike has always been hard to start.   Thanx  guys!

      I just did my valve adjustments and put my YZ250f back together as far as the valves, shims buckets and cam covers on but I need adhesive for the plastic valve/cam cover and I am stumped as far as what to use and where to get it or even what to call it! Need to get some soon im in need of a ride!

      Hey guys, I bought this YZ85 and came to realise the clutch wasnt working, so I drained the oil (Jet black) and pulled the plates out and cleaned them. I assumed finding a torque wrench would be easier than it has been. Does anyone know how to torque the clutch springs to spec without a wrench? Any insight helps.
