piston check up

Well I decided it was time for a new piston after a years worth of hard racing. Last week I pulled the old one out and threw in a wiseco. I went to the track Saturday the get a full break in on this monster. Rode it hard after the initial ride and ran great like usual. I also tinkered with jetting to find a good setting (needle/pilot) since it was about 100 degrees. Today at work I was curious to see what the piston crown looked like after the first ride. So I pulled the head off to check it out and saw that it looked like it was all good to me. What do y'all think? Does it look alright? lemme know you thoughts...

Looks pretty standard for 3-10 hours.

Cool, jetting was red needle #2 and 50 pilot with 175 main. Like I said it was around 90-100 degrees. Fmf fatty w/tc2, and boyesson rad valve.

Forgot to mention that I'm running yamalube 2r 32:1

"Today at work"..... Jealous

      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.
