 I thought I’d jump in with a picture of my air cooled girl here a 1999 DR350.  She may be old, but at 52 years old so am I.  I ride this bike a lot on single trail here in the Northeast. I spend a lot of time at Thomaston dam in Connecticut or we trailer this and my sons DRZ250 up to Maine where there are miles and miles of legal ATV trails.  I’ve put drop links on it and reshaped the seat I don’t weigh a lot so I had to adjust to me.  Had the rear shock re-valved and sealed this past summer but other than that this bike runs flawlessly. Maybe it’s a little porky but there’s nothing like the dependability of these old air cooled bikes.

      My top end went on m 98 cr 125, the needle bearing clip came out and broke apart and shrapnel got everywhere and blew it up. I cleaned out the top end and washed out the crank with the bike upside down. the bike starts up great and seems to run fine but im getting a weird di-di-di-di-di-di-di noise coming from the motor. i tried adjust the power valve and tightening everything but the noise is still there. Here is a link to a video where you can hear the sound. It gets louder as rpm's get higher and at really low rpm barely idling it goes away. I am pretty new to bikes and 2 strokes so any help would be appreciated.

      So heres the issue, i have replaced the seals multiple times for the water pump however still get a leak out of the weep hole. Over time it goes into the oil side. I think ive found the issue but dont know how to fix it. There is grooves on the ‘water pump shaft’. To which most would say replace it, its not as easy as that, the shaft is directly connected to the crankshaft so my question is, can i fix these grooves without replacing the crankshaft and thus spliting the case?
