660 wont start when warm getting worse...


i have a 01 660r raptor,the engine was rebuilt a few years ago,i just replaced the starter cluch because i killed it cranking it over forever..sometimes it will start up fine but white smoke poures out ,sometimes it wont start at all..now i changed the carbs after having the old carbs badly rebuilt by a local dealer,it stopped the fuel leaking when i leave the gas on after parked..but it sometimes still does it. but the main problem it if it starts and i shut it off it will not start again..even pop starts wont work. when it does run its faster than ever!i was told i damaged the stator replaced it and it started but after 1 ride same problem..so i was told i damaged the flywheel as i did not use the proper tool? but it is charging..i think the valves are too tight and need to be adjusted..but everything i do to this thing leads to another problem..im so po'd i pushed it in the shead all summer.but it time to ride again and want to fix the problems..cant trust the local dealer or shops any ideas anyone?

      38MM Cast SmartCarb. Purchased a couple years ago for a yz250. Don't have the bike anymore, and it has been sitting around for about a year. Used, but in fine working condition. You can also purchase a different needle for different bikes, as well as rebuild kits from their website.
      Asking $250 shipped to continental United States. I can arrange other shipping options at the buyers expense.

      So I am going to buy a brand new ktm 150sx. Should I wait until the 2019 come out? When does the 2019’s come out? It is March 22, 2018 right now. I have the cash already,but want to make the right decision. Thank you.

      Does anyone know how to, or if you can, change your AMA number? The race number, not the full thing.

      I got all of this stuff to make a second engine with electric start for my 2002 WR250F. Including complete electrical system.
      The only things that are missing is the left side case, and a battery.
      Included is a complete new valve train, and Hotcams. The valve seats were cut by my brother's shop, on a Newen machine, which is state of the art. I lapped the head on a granite surface plate - it's perfect.

      If you're interested, we can get into detail about it. I'm a serious mechanic, and I was totally going to do this, but I got a big bonus, and bought a KTM EXC 350 instead. Check my posts and history on Thumper Talk.
