2 Stroke Help???

I know this is a 4 stroke website but is there anyone willing to help a brother out with my 2005 YZ 125?

ill take it off your hands

ill take it off your hands. what kind of help do you need

We need jus' a little more info. :naughty:

Thanks guys...heres the deal I have a 2005 YZ 125, I run pump gas with a Pro Circuit pipe/shorty silencer. I ride in socal mainly elevations ranging from sea level to about 2500'. I was hoping to get a baseline with my jetting. Is stock ok or should I start rejetting? Thanks again I know this is a 4 stroke forum!

well i just finished a 250 and a 125 05 set of bikes for a customer and out here in az both bikes needed race fuel to not rattle and detonate ,----i was able to get them jetted in nice on f&l sp3,---

he wanted to run pump but they both detonated badly .

so your pump may be better but be carfull.

i had to go three mains larger to get the 125 to not rattle and it lost power badly.

the 250 never did stop detonation .

we went to race fuel and i went 1 clip leaner on both needles and ran 1 size smaller on the 125 main and went 2 sizes smaller on the 250 main and we ended back with the stock pipes on both bikes for now , we tried" Flow pipes" and they were terrible and the pc pipes were less than stock of the corners and both the pc and the stock over rev was the same so oh well thats were we ended up. :naughty:

we also had v-force 3 reed blocks witch were very good gains.

Right on, thank you for the advice.

By no means I want to contradict Kelstr but... I am from Brazil and have rode (own) many 2 smokers in my not so long 11 years riding "career". I've used race fuels, avigas and pump gas on various smokers and with some patience (jetting) they all ran fine. And over here our pump gas has 25% alcohol (imposed by law!) which makes a little harder to jet. Right now I'm riding a 00' CR 250 using 95oct./25%alc. pump gas (called podium made by Petrobras-which makes the fuel that goes into the Williams F1 team). The bike comes with a 48pilot 178main. Mine is running perfect with a 55pilot and 182main. I don't know if I was of any help but... Good luck!

I appreciate everyones advice, the more the better. If anyone has any more tips please keep them coming!

      Hi Guys,
      So I recently bought a 1997 XR400. I've done some research into getting more power through some basic mods and rejetting the carbs. Though all of the ones I've found have been for post 98 XR400s so the stock carb set up is a lot different. Usually people are opening up the airbox, exhaust ect. ect. and Jetting their carbs up to 160/162 for mains around 60 ish (I think) for the pilot. However for the 97 model this is close to stock for the jets.
      So essentially what Im asking (Just to cut to the chase ) Has anyone got a 96/97 (maybe 98, not sure) XR400 and has done these similar mods, and what sort of jetting have to done as a result.
      Thanks in advanced, also its my first post so apologies if I havent done everything correctly.

      38MM Cast SmartCarb. Purchased a couple years ago for a yz250. Don't have the bike anymore, and it has been sitting around for about a year. Used, but in fine working condition. You can also purchase a different needle for different bikes, as well as rebuild kits from their website.
      Asking $250 shipped to continental United States. I can arrange other shipping options at the buyers expense.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      I know this topic has been discussed in the past, but I have not found any options available for the new 2018 bikes. I live and work for a new Beta Dealer (Auburn Extreme Powersports) in California, and we are having a difficult time mapping the RR-S bikes for full FMF exhausts. We have tried contacting Beta Support several times for this issue to no avail, and we typically are given the runaround when transferring to techs and secretaries. From what we can gather, the FMF flash is designed for the RR bikes, but not the street-legal counterparts. Every time we try to install the FMF map onto an RR-S errors occur, and the programmer screen goes virtually blank. We have heard through the grapevine that some are using the RR maps on the RR-S with success, but we have yet to try it, even on our own bikes for fear that it will permanently erase or damage the CDI. Any and all help or suggestions regarding this topic would surely be appreciated! Thanks, Ben.
