I just bought the bike and wanted to get rid of the Yamaha blue. Took all the plastic off, replaced some, painted the rest with plastic paint. New back tire, adjusted the throttle cable, raised the seal savers, changed the oil, lubed the chain.

the dealer does not know crap! Trust me disconect the gray wire, just read some of the forums about it. Make sure you do all the other mods and properly jet the bike when doing so.

      okay, I'm looking for help trying to locate whats not going right on my bike. here are the details.        
      PROBLEM: doesn't fire up, I kick and kick and it will fire a couple times, but won't take. and will occasionally backfire. it won't bump start, won't fire up with starting fluid. I don't have a lot of experience with dirtbike motors, but I get the concept.
      What I've done: retimed it, put on a new timing chain, put on new piston rings, put new head gaskets on, put brand new valves shims in and adjusted them to factory, put a manual tensioner on it, removed the carb and cleaned it ALL. I don't get whats not right. I have spark, I have fuel, I have compression. is it normal to get fuel blow back through the back of the carb? not a lot but if I hold a paper over it and have my friend kick it you can see the paper get gas on it. which I find weird because, in order to have compression shouldn't my carb close all the way, there's always a slight gap on my gate in the carb, is that normal? I also read something about a stator key that if it's not sitting right you'll have spark, just not at the right time. or could it be my stator entirely? at this point I'm open to anything, I did not own it when it stopped, the guy said it ran, backfired and stopped. sounded like a timing issue or maybe shims, though I could fix it, he gave the bike to me for 900 bucks. said he didn't want to deal with it, so here I am.

      How do you guys evaluate 2018 YZ performance in the hands of Bam Bam Barcia. i just compare his podium with the 2 podium yamaha have in 2017 . the last 2 podium which Web and Reed had ,were not the resulat of an awesome racing and bla bla . and now someone  use the potential of yamaha . if he continue the same for the next race !? BaaaaaaM 
      chad reed and Cooper Web po po on this bike ... and know we see how good is YZ in the hand of 51, who mentally wanna use his opportunity. i appreciate Barcia attitude , he come to the team with a positive mentality, he didnt come on YZ with - negative mentality.
