Cracked Case

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I have a cracked left side engine case :banghead::busted::ride: When replacing the case do I need to buy matching cases or can I just buy the left side? These parts are mass produced, so as long as I get the case for my bike year, it should be the same, right? Anyway I ride an 06 yz250 smoker. The cases new are $900-$1000, fricken bullshit! If you guys know where I can get some used cases let me know, I already checked ebay.

Thanks

MAX!!!

Yes - they need to be matched. Can you have the old case welded? My old KX250 threw it's chain and broke/cracked the case around the clutch arm/sprocket area - had it welded - I think it was around $80 for the welding - was pretty detailed work as I recall.

Here are 2 pictures of the case w/ Yamabond on the break. It the piece was pretty flush, it has gotten worse and is now raised, I guess I need to buy some cases or get is welded.

That would be a fairly simple weld job. You would not even need to take the motor out let alone split the cases.

I would get it done asap, before you loose the broken piece.

I'd just weld it.I have seen complete, good motors for sale for $1500+ or -.

Yea, I definately don't have the money for a new engine or new cases. It seems like the concessus is to remove the cover and have it welded.

MAX!!!

Ya just have the thing welded. Its not even that important becausem, the only thing you are sealing up is to prevent dust and water from getting in.

that piece thats broken isnt going into an the crank case, it just keeps dist and water out of the stator area. DONT SPENT 1000 BUCKS ON NEW CASES!!! for that little chip.

Yea all you have to do is take off your plastic cover, Impact off your flywheel nut, I think it is reverse thread also!, Pull off your flywheel with a puller, 3 phillips heads hold on your stator, and then have hole welded, ! :applause: or put a piece of aluminum sheet jb welded over the hole,on inside, and then fill in outer area with liquid aluminum. Sand when dry and your as good as new.....voila!:cool:

How did that happen? From the chain coming off?

I don't know how it happened, the chain did not come off. I have been riding w/out the case saver for about a year, some rocks must have impacted it. ???

Yeah, I suppose the chain could have picked up a small stone and thrown it into the case.

I'd love to get rid of the ugly stock sprocket cover/case guard, but I want whatever protection it provides.

Hey 1959, I just use 3 same type screws about 5-10mm shorter and leave off my sproket cover in muddy conditions,but still have my case guard. Don't have to have cover with guard, can have guard by itself!:cool:

:cool: I run just the guard also. It's not like I'm gonna be sticking my fingers near there or ever riding without the proper boots.

I thought yamabond was to seal the cases, not to be used like JB weld to try and glue broken pieces together, its just a gasket type sealer, not a weld or glue...?

      Hey TT, I know there's endless topics on YZ250/ two stroke tuning in general but I have not been able to find one that helps me get my 09 YZ250 set up for my riding style and where I ride so I'm here asking for help. I got this bike around 1.5 years ago and have not known how to set it up properly. I know no one can give me a perfect set up but I'd like a good starting setup to work from and tweak to perfection. Throughout this time I've had this bike, its always been covering the bottom of the entire silencer and dripping all over the swing arm and rims with oil. Also, the joint between silencer and expansion pipe has oil around it too but I've heard I have to close the gap a little to squeeze the silencer a little tighter and stop the leakage there. I don't have too much experience messing with carbs but I've messed around with previous two strokes and tuned them a little better. I change the oil on my bike after 15-20 hours on it and clean and oil the air filter after almost every ride. The sparkplugs never last me more than a few months but recently have been lasting me no more than a few weeks. With the excess oil from the pipe and spark plug fouling you can see why I need to set my bike up to stop this. 
      The bike:
      Completely stock with V-Force 3 Reeds and a FMF Shorty silencer. 
      Usually running around 32:1 premix with 91 pump fuel because I prefer to keep it well lubricated instead of running rich.
      Riding:
      I ride enduro in Ontario, Canada. So mostly single track and some fire roads but nothing close to MX and not a lot of time wide open. Therefore, probably mostly 1/4-1/2 or 1/4-3/4 throttle range.
      Where I ride:
      Usually 0-500' above sea level. With temperatures ranging from around 15-35 degrees Celsius (55-95 Fahrenheit).
       
      If anyone can give me a setup to go from, that would be very much appreciated. Even multiple set ups for different temperature ranges or any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks and sorry for the long read, I just didn't want to leave anything out. Ask any questions if you have any, too.

      Hey guys... so I have a problem... I took the bike at Cal City, broke it in, and while I was doing so, the bike was bogging in first gear (Yes, first gear). Also it doesn't idle at all. I have to keep blipping it otherwise it'll stall. So I adjusted the screw circled in image 1. Well I was listening to the sound of the of the bike, yet the rpm's weren't increasing, and it was still stalling. So then, I unscrewed the screw in image 2, well I found out that it was fully twisted to the right. So then, I twisted it to the left, still nothing; it was still stalling... where's the idle screw? I am sure that the screw in image 1 is for the air/fuel mixture screw, and the screw in image 2 is the idle screw, just broken? I don't know, any and every help would be appreciated.

      I’ve got this 85 yz 250 with a odd rev problem, it starts and runs fine, good compression but when you Give it wide open throttle in newtral the bike will rev to around 5.5 k rpm like platow for a bit there, once you’ve waited  a few seconds there for it to clear itself out until it reaches its max rev whatever it might be 7k rpm even happeneds when the bike is defenetly warmed up after a wide open pull. But it doesn’t bog at idle to 3k. The trotte response when riding seens normal. However i don’t feel that the motor is getting its full potential. Honestly I’m just confused on what’s goin on and i need some help
