Need Help! 1992 Yz 125

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I'm new to thumper talk. I ridden dirt bikes on and off for about 2 years. I recently purchased an old YZ 125 for a very low price from a friend. I have had the carb. cleaned twice. Fluids replaced etc. The shifter nob is not staying attached to the gear shift, and the bike is leaking a good amount of oil. WHAT should i do for maintenance? Thanks

1992???

Damn ya might be better off just getting a newer one before you put $500 into this and still have just an old bike.

Seen many people try (Like myself) and end up spending more than you want and its still not a good bike

sounds like your shift lever is stripped, cheap fix is jb weld or do it right and pick up a new one. definetly sounds like the clutch cover leaking.

thanks! i thought i needed a new one. I think you're right, the nut even when super tight, won't grip.
