05 yz 250 motor sounds...

Recommended Posts

hey, as of yesterday i purchased a used 2005 yamaha yz 250. bike ran great and has been taken care of and it show’s in the bikes condition. today i decided to take the bike for my first ride and i rode it for awile and it was running great but then all of a sudden it stopped running and i came to a stop.. i brought the bike back to my garage and took at apart to see what was wrong and everything seems good. 160 psi in the piston, spark plug is burning nice and the crank doesnt seem to have any play in it. the bike starts right up and i can ride it jut like normal but the motor is making alot more noise than it did when i got it.. any idea what it might be? i dont know too much about dirtbikes

tuff to say with out hearing the "noise" but id take as many engine covers off as you can and have a look .. compare with your manual (need to buy/have/own) ... take your clutch apart, drain the oil ..

that being said .. my guess is you didn't put the power valve back together right or something came loose ( giggiddy)

1) dose the bike make the noise at idle ?

2) can you isolate where it's coming from?

yes gas and oil were mixed properly. motor still runs like normal and idles i cant find anythign wrong. took the reeds out and didnt see any issues. where is the power valve? iv never really looked into bike motors before just alot of snowmobiles.. im guessing the power valve is the thing right above the exhaust at the front of the motor? just looks like a metal plate?

      Looking to buy a used Beta 2017 500 RRS from outside California.  Can I plate (Register with CA DMV) the bike in CA?  If so what is the best way?  Don't have the money to put down for a new bike from a Dealer in CA.  Any help or sugguestions would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
