Daytona Race...spoiler

Well, it was shown live so its hard to spoil. I bet Reed wishes he had his yz 250 tonight. It was probably one of the best races I have ever seen. If you missed it live, be sure and catch the replay. The results dont reflect anything that happened...as odd as that sounds.

I wish I could ride as well in dry conditions as Reed can with his bike running through axle deep water and mud. I dont believe I have ever seen anyone ride in mud like he can.

That was a very cool race:thumbsup: i could not believe some of the water holes they had to navigate through.

I never did figure out who the Kawi rider was that had his bike standing straight up, then climbed on top of the front tire and was jumping up and down to pry the reartire out of the mud. I can honestly say i've never seen that before

He looks unbeatable when the retired one & the fastest one aren't in the arena.

I wish he's stand up and publicly thank the #s 4 & 7 for giving him this season.

Reed was really fast when he was off the track 2 or 3 times, especially when he stayed off the track to cut the corner and catch 14. Reeds motor blowing saved the AMA a tough decsion, Karma? Just my opinion, yours may vary....

I thought it might be Preston, but it was so muddy it was impossible to read the number.

Thats what i thought to but he didn't look tall enough, of course if he was standing in a 2' water hole:excuseme:

I would have loved to try one lap on someone else's bike.

The water was DEEP. I thought the race would be a bore fest, but was actually very good.

You are correct sir. I was dieing in my seat watching that.

*SPOILER*

Chads bike died w/ 3 corners left. Carmichael thought he fried the clutch. I thought he hydrolocked it with the way he hit every puddle. Reed never finished after a 62 second lead. KDub won it.

      Hi guys, I'm new here and bought a have 2001 a month ago and the engine is almost down in pieces, need the flywheel puller that's ordered and the parts needed for the rebound of the engine. I'm also ordering Haynes YZ manual as I think it will be a good buy for me.
      Anyway, the VIN strarts with CE08CE I think... on the back of my cylinder there where some mechanic had written with a marker pen -01 125. It seems like there have been a major failure before, as the head has small dents in it, and the cases are clearly not the same as the one with the VIN is much much smoother in the inlet and crank case. 
      Engine VIN is E111E I think, or something very similar to that.
      It has a white Airbox and floating front brake, I've read on other threads here that that was a new thing for -01, is it?
       
      Fast help would be much appreciated so that I can order parts as soon as possible.
      BTW, here a rebuild with wiseco crank, all seals, new main bearings, new ring and all new  gaskets cost about 500$. Just the crank at Yamaha was 1,200$ at the local Yamaha centre so you all should count yourself as very lucky!
       
      Thanks for help! I'll post other threads soon as I'm at the beginning is going to post the cases for a smoother flow and have complete HGS system. I really would love to have a 144 but I guess that will cost me insane money as everything is more expensive here, and I also guess sending head n cylinder to the U.S. would cost way to much too... So I'll, be doing what I can on my own and that's the cases for better flow and matchporting it to the cylinder. 
       
      I much appreciate any help! Thanks!

      I've heard if you put VForce Reeds, properly jet your carb and clean the carb, change the exhaust pipe, clean the airbox and put a new air filter, and properly fix the shocks to match your weight, you can gain a ton of power?

      Please help! I recently bought a Yz250f and have not been able to start it, it Has spark, but there are many issues with the carby which I wanna rule out before I leap into a rebuild, ( I want to avoid a rebuild if possible as I’m low on cash). The carby at the moment is a complete mess so the usual steps to fixing it might not work. So here’s the deal with the carb: 
      - It’s leaking fuel from overflow ( really fast! ) and when I mean really fast, I mean it emptied my fuel tank in 2 mins.
      - It has a slow leak coming from somewhere under the float bowl
      - the air fuel screw is not adjusted correctly 
      - I don’t know if the electrics work on it either 
      - I don’t even know if it’s shooting fuel into the cylinder or not, as after kicking it a couple times and it’s not starting I remove the spark plug and it’s still dry. ( I tried putting fuel directly into cylinder from the spark plug hole but the bike still wouldn’t start) 
      okay so I know it’s a lot but I’m not expecting anyone to answer every single question themselves. If each person could tackle whatever problem they know it would help heaps. Also just want to know what Order to fix things in as I can’t do air fuel until the bike is running and it won’t run unless I stop the leaking and get it to spray fuel into the cylinder. And buying a new carby is not an option ( I’ve got $40 to my name atm). Please help guys thanks.
