Looks good.  Be sure to try to get a discount code before you order , 10% off will equal quite a bit at checkout for that list.

I want to know how that Husky works out for you. I've been wanting to build a YZ125 for the woods for a couple of years now but I haven't committed.

I considered the YZ125, the KTM 150XC, and the Husky. Decided on the Husky after researching TT, CafeHusky and the KTM forum. The cost($4,299 OTD),free 144cc kit, and reliability are what sold me on the Husky. The YZ would have needed the same mods as the Husky and was $2,000 more. The KTM was closer to what I wanted but about $3,000 more. I started a thread over on CafeHusky.com about the bike and my plans for it if you're interested: http://www.cafehusky.com/threads/14-cr125-to-woods-weapon.39971/

You know what I did with my WR today? I looked at it.  Why? Because it's fricken winter! Stud my tires? How about add a track kit!

I'M SICK OF SNOW!

I wish we would get some snow. We get a crazy cold front once in awhile, usually during the week, then it's back to high 60s on the weekends. Believe me I appreciate good riding weather, but it hasn't really been winter at all this year.

You should also order an R&D remote fuel screw, and a Tokyo Mods accelerator pump spring upgrade (direct from TMods)

Dude, I'm with you. I'm so sick of this winter. I feel like I live in Northern Michigan instead of SE Missouri. The ground is frozen into "tundra" like permafrost under the constant snow. A few weeks ago it thawed out and I got to ride, a total muddy bog, almost got stuck in a farmer's field. Now it's frozen solid again. It's even too cold to go out in the garage and work on the bikes, so I play on the computer and spend $$$ on them instead. If it doesn't warm up soon I'll be broke.

I have no sympathy for you. I'd gladly give you this cold and snow!!! BTW, it seems your WR didn't suffer any long term effects from running with out oil. My WR has frost bite.

Yeah, I think the bike is good to go. Starts/runs/sounds like nothing happened. I still examine the oil when I change it - everything looks normal. The clock is ticking when your drain plug falls out, that's for sure.

Rocker, after hearing your story, I ordered a magnetic plug and have planned on adding a safety wire.

Well today was awesome. -10 when I left the house, but at least no fresh snow for a change. It made it up to a balmy 22 this afternoon. Thought I might break out some shorts for a minute.

I HAVE to start riding soon, I've spent every last dollar I have on all sorts of stuff I probably don't need. I'm not allowed to touch the checkbook, debit/credit card, paypal account, piggy bank........NOTHING!  The only thing I can do now is set around abd post stupid things with poor spelling and grammar on TT!!!

Good idea. I have a stock replacement drain bolt back in now but am going to order a magnetic plug soon. Safety wire is a good call as well.

I take a glance at my left boot every so often while riding now and a quick look down at the plug itself every time I stop.

Just rolled it out of the garage and warmed up the oil, wishing I could go riding.  Too wet.  Trails are closed.  Sucks.

 

Changed the graphics a little.  Reset the CO level and a new mapping.

      Very nice Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 Clutch that has been ran for about 40 - 50 hours.  The Core EXP 3.0 gives you the best of both worlds as it is fully automatic and allows you to operate it just like you would a manual clutch.  Was getting ready to install in a 2017 YZ250F so I wanted to freshen it up and bought a brand new EXP 3.0 Disc which has never been oiled up or installed.  Before getting time to install the clutch, I decided to sell the bike.  It fits a 2014 - 2018 Yamaha YZ250F. 
      ONLY $575 shipped anywhere in the lower U.S.
      Please call or text me at 801-362-8899.
      Thanks!

      Hi guys I just did a top end rebuild on my 2004 yz450f and I inspected full motor, replaced the bottom end gaskets and seals, timing chain, cylinder, piston,rings, top end gaskets, valves, spark plug, and it ran fine fr about 15 hours besides a quiet ticking noise. I was put riding the other day and after about 6 hours of riding that day my buddy asked what my rev limiter sounds like and I said i don't know and I don't want to blow it up and he said it won't blow up so I started it up and pinned it to hear the rev limiter and I only held it open for one second and then it backfired and died. I tried to start it back up and the compression is extremely low. I can push kick it over with my hand easily. Pulled the head off and found some very small metal particles on the cams, timing was fine, and the top of the piston is ok, (haven't taken it out of the cylinder yet).... Anyone know what it could be???

      Hello everyone! I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I would like to ask for some advice regarding some upcoming motorcycle purchases. My parents are in the process of purchasing a mountain cabin here in Colorado (Redfeather lakes) some time soon. The cabin is surrounded by dirt roads and trails so they intend to buy several dirt bikes for me as well as my younger brother and sister to put around on while we are staying up there. I would like to ask for some advice/ suggestions regarding which motorcycles would be the best choice for me (my younger siblings as well). So, I have a few years of dirtbike-riding experience on a crf100, but that is it. I haven't ridden one in a long time though I do have a sport bike which I ride a lot now.  I have an affinity for two-strokes and would love to pick one up. There are several nice older ktm 300 exc's on craigslist for around 3,000 dollars , as well as several yz250s in a simlar price range. I would love to have the ktm, but I am afraid that the maintenance cost will be very high despite it being a two stroke. The yz is a motocross bike but I hear that they can work as a trail bike. There is even one nice looking kdx 220 that I have my eye on (My friend says that its the greatest trail bike ever made. Is that true?). Would any of those be preferable to another, and come someone touch on the maintenance costs of those bikes (replacing top ends and such?)? There is always the option of a four stroke as well and I guess there are a lot more options there, though as i said I would prefer a two stroke. I saw a few nice xr400s, some crf450x's (is that overkill?), a REALLY nice klx 300 (my dad had one of these), some others also. Basically, can someone chime in on what would be the best bike to get? Does this all just boil down to preference? Basically I am just looking for a reliable, fairly powerful bike that I could pick up for a few grand and is preferably 2 stroke but doesn't have to be. Thanks!
