Just got done installing my rebuilt suspension with Racetech springs and gold valves, had the valving done from a local suspension shop. Also just installed a JD jetting kit and a new Lexx Mxe exhaust slip on. Now it not only looks and sounds better, but it's got a noticable power increase as well. Tonight after work I'm installing a new Maxxis IT rear tire.

The bike is new to me and in next to new condition as it was used only a very small amount.

I sat infront of the computer day dreaming about driving one because I won't be getting one this year, but hopefully next. The reason I'm infront of the computer and not riding is because i had a nasty spill that ended my riding season early :ride::)

my buddy had auto de-compression on his zy400f and at the beginning of the summer the detent ball came out, got stuck in his timing chain, broke it and left other shrapnel in the bottom of the engine too. starting it was a pain too. my bike has the stock cams and it starts first kick every time. i'm skeptical about putting those things in bikes that aren't made for them.

I found a piece of aluminum in my garage 2" wide by 1/8" thick and about three feet long. I cut a piece just over 2.3" long and then used the belt sander to get it right at 2.3" and make it pretty. I then cut a notch on one side that made that side 1.9" long and then gave the whole thing a soft sanded satin finish. When I adjust the chain I just set it up on the swingarm. The low side should slide right under the chain and the tall side should not.

Here's a pic of the Galfer Wave rotor, solid.

Its a big pic so Ill just link it.....

i have new rotors front and back and they are honest to God much stronger than the stock WR rotors, which Ive bent. They seem thicker to but I didnt Mic them. Im using EBC comps as pads and motul high temp fluid.

thats also a Kenda Millville. I like it so far. Its wearing pretty fast but it has great hook up in the sand and mud, does ok on rocks as well. little skatey on hardpack and gravel - but then what isnt.

Sorry, kind of long but here is why I ask...

I have an 09. I ride So Cal desert from 0 to 4,000 feet. I rode it once in completely stock form to break it in. I loved the way the bike ran except I desperately wanted full throttle and it was over heating. I could hear the radiator boiling and my over flow tank was half full.

I went home and purchased the Yamaha AIS removal kit. I installed all of the jets from that kit, removed air box snorkels, removed pea shooter from exhaust, disconnected gray wire. I have ridden it a couple of times with this set up. It does not over heat at all. The radiator does not boil and my over flow tank stays at about 1/4 full all day long.

Dirt Rider did their comparison test and only used the throttle stop, no pea shooter, and no gray wire and they talked about how great the stock jetting was. They did not mention over heating. Their article got me to second guessing myself.

So, am I running cooler now due to the richer jetting or to the freer breathing? And...if I was happy with the way it ran before, should I have left the stock jetting or would it still be overheating?

Why are you second guessing, that's my question. Richer jetting requires freer breathing . You can't add one without the other. You must not have ridden it much since you uncorked it to say you liked it before. Not possible!

Stock jetting means overheating. Cutting open your air box only, would make it even leaner, and even hotter.

      I just bought a 2005 YZ 125 with a ported cylinder & a decked head. I am a trail rider, I do not race. What are my service intervals for top-end rebuild? What brand do you recommend?

      I am selling my California Plated YZ426F. This bike is very rare because there are not many CA plated YZ426F's and it is in great condition. The bike has been garaged and well maintained. The bike was just serviced and completely gone through. White Brothers Exhaust/spark arrester, Pro Taper handle bars, steering stabilizer.

      New kickstand, new graphics, new fenders, new LED headlight and turn signals. Front and rear shocks have been serviced by ESP. The bike starts right up and runs well. I have a desert tank, paddle tire, stator, turn signals and other original parts I will include with this purchase. Title in hand. Best way to reach me is by email. Second best way is by text. $3400 OBO

      Well guys, I officially pulled the trigger!!!! I have been looking for a bike non stop on craigslist for about a year now....I just CANT justify spending 7k on a brand new machine. About 3 months ago I bought a project bike for 500 bucks and realized it was gonna cost way more to fix it than the bake was worth...it was a 2001 Yz125.....so I resold it, didn't lose any money on it, and kept looking....Well  last week, I FOUND A GEM THAT I JUST COULDN'T PASS UP!!!!Went and picked this puppy up today for 3,500.00 bucks. 2015 Yz125. Dad bought it for his kid 2 years ago, who rode it for 6 months around his neighborhood, broke his wrist, and then never touched it again. Has about 40-50 hours on it I was told. What do you guys think??????
