OEM Parts

Recommended Posts

Wow, you're right. The OEM button is gone. The OEM section when you enter your specific machine is gone also. I just ordered some OEM parts from the other week.

For what it's worth, I saw the same problem a few weeks ago. I checked again the next day and it was back working again.

Yes. They do still sell them, I was looking for an OEM diagram last night, and when I went directly to the OEM store URL, it had a page stating it was under construction due to their provider being down, or something to that affect. They are still selling OEM parts, just waiting on their system to come back up.

The OEM button is gone again. I jumped on their live chat and the person I talked to said that due to some licensing and trademark issues the OEMs are not allowing them to sell through that site and said they didn't know when or if negotiations would allow them to bring that section back again.

bummer...

I'm almost positive that they will bring the OEM section back, whether or not it's with a different provider is another story. I'm sure OEM orders make up a decent chunk of their sales, and without it means people either have to do their shopping at two separate places, or they'll just entirely switch over to a site that sells both OEM and aftermarket parts.

Huh...kinda odd. I've heard there is a line in some of the dealer agreements that new OEM parts are not to be resold, like this situation. Too bad cause my local dealer can't find parts it in the microfiche unless I point them out.... MXsouth also sells OEM parts w/ their aftermarket, wonder if they will be shut down too???

I have no idea what happened in this specific case. BUT, They never REALLY sold oem parts. They set up partnerships with local dealers. Lets say you set up a 30% off deal. You then listed the parts on your site at 10% off list, then dropped shipped everything that the person ordered. You pocket a cool 20% for doing nothing, or at the very most opening boxes and repacking everything.

Now, lets pretend that you set up a partnership with a little Mom and Pop dealer in Nowhere, UT. How well do you think this place, working out of a tough shed, could handle nationwide OEM parts orders? Also items that showed "in stock" could very well mean the item was in stock...in Suzuki's Parts warehouse in Brea, Ca.

Truth be told, I live 50 miles away from RM. They are a really good place to deal with, and we are lucky to have them this close for emergencies. Being 100% honest, Thumpertalk's store runs circles around them when it comes to service and has a far better OEM Partnership set up.

I have to disagree with this.

I like TT and try to order from them as much as possible, but I will not order OEM parts from them, because each and every time I have, it has taken over two weeks to get the parts (and I'm in Idaho, so I'm extremely close).

I once called Justin and asked what the deal was, and it was because they usually don't have OEM parts on hand; they have to order them, and then turn around the ship them once they're received. I've never had that problem with RM or other places like NCY.

      Ok so I'm looking for opinions from those who have been on yz125s and 150 exc/xcw's and maybe the ktm 200's exc/xcw's. You gotta be out there.
      Here's the deal...I'm 5'7" 165lbs. A couple years back I was looking for a small bike for my wife to learn on and for me to play around with and race. Could only afford one bike. I got a '09 ktm 105 sx. Once I got it sprung for my weight it was great. I have been top five consistently in my local harescrambles B class, believe it or not. Ya, you were not the only ones shocked. And did pretty good in the local mx races as well, junior class up here in Canada. Lack of power was sometimes an issue but I learned to deal with it and just scream, scream, scream!
      However my wife is a complete beginner and she is scared of it. I have since moved her to a 4 stroke.
      Just got a mint '01 yz15 mid summer. Like less than 200 hrs! I have absolutely loved it on the mx track. Suspension is perfect and I love the extra power. I had planned to set it up for woods/mx with a suspension revalve. However, did a harescramble race a month ago that was really technical. Granted I have not done anything to the suspension minus clickers, had too much psi in the tires (13 front and 15 rear) (yes I know that's wonkey, I only had time to get a heavy duty tube in the front and had a stock tube in back. Less psi in the back would have been instant pinch flat because its so rocky) and it was running rich. I had to scream the thing to keep it running and even changed a plug mid race. Well I'm sure you can guess but it was the worst experience I have ever had on a motorcycle. The more open sections I passed a lot of people but the tech sections required way more effort than I liked and the suspension beat the hell out of me!!! Like my knees, wrists, and shoulders were just done. (I was out there for three hours).
      So keep in mind that I just came off a 105sx with suspension mods (set up for woods/mx). I have no problem slipping clutch and shifting precisely, yatta yatta. (I don't think the 105 would have done well here either due to even less power, however...) I've been second guessing fixing this 125 up for woods ever since I rode a friends '09 ktm 250xcw. I rode it on a local mx track. The power was just so effortless and I was absolutely floored by how the suspension worked. I never thought that I could hit the woops that hard and clear every jump on the track on an xcw and feel THAT good! It felt a lot heavier though, and I think the price tag on these things are going to be a stretch.
      So here's my question. I want the lightness of a 125, but want to be able to race both woods and mx. How does a 150 exc/xcw ENGINE compare to an mx 125 engine? I love the 125 engine, but more low end would be usefull in tech areas. But if there is not a huge difference, I will probably just revalve the yz for woods and go tubless, etc. The 150exc's are so expensive and I hardly ever even see one for sale unless its brand new. I don't want the weight of a 200/250/300. I barely touch the ground on a 125....so it has to at least be light. Is it worth waiting for a 150 engine? Thanks guys.

      Hey TT, I know there's endless topics on YZ250/ two stroke tuning in general but I have not been able to find one that helps me get my 09 YZ250 set up for my riding style and where I ride so I'm here asking for help. I got this bike around 1.5 years ago and have not known how to set it up properly. I know no one can give me a perfect set up but I'd like a good starting setup to work from and tweak to perfection. Throughout this time I've had this bike, its always been covering the bottom of the entire silencer and dripping all over the swing arm and rims with oil. Also, the joint between silencer and expansion pipe has oil around it too but I've heard I have to close the gap a little to squeeze the silencer a little tighter and stop the leakage there. I don't have too much experience messing with carbs but I've messed around with previous two strokes and tuned them a little better. I change the oil on my bike after 15-20 hours on it and clean and oil the air filter after almost every ride. The sparkplugs never last me more than a few months but recently have been lasting me no more than a few weeks. With the excess oil from the pipe and spark plug fouling you can see why I need to set my bike up to stop this. 
      The bike:
      Completely stock with V-Force 3 Reeds and a FMF Shorty silencer. 
      Usually running around 32:1 premix with 91 pump fuel because I prefer to keep it well lubricated instead of running rich.
      Riding:
      I ride enduro in Ontario, Canada. So mostly single track and some fire roads but nothing close to MX and not a lot of time wide open. Therefore, probably mostly 1/4-1/2 or 1/4-3/4 throttle range.
      Where I ride:
      Usually 0-500' above sea level. With temperatures ranging from around 15-35 degrees Celsius (55-95 Fahrenheit).
       
      If anyone can give me a setup to go from, that would be very much appreciated. Even multiple set ups for different temperature ranges or any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks and sorry for the long read, I just didn't want to leave anything out. Ask any questions if you have any, too.

      Hey guys... so I have a problem... I took the bike at Cal City, broke it in, and while I was doing so, the bike was bogging in first gear (Yes, first gear). Also it doesn't idle at all. I have to keep blipping it otherwise it'll stall. So I adjusted the screw circled in image 1. Well I was listening to the sound of the of the bike, yet the rpm's weren't increasing, and it was still stalling. So then, I unscrewed the screw in image 2, well I found out that it was fully twisted to the right. So then, I twisted it to the left, still nothing; it was still stalling... where's the idle screw? I am sure that the screw in image 1 is for the air/fuel mixture screw, and the screw in image 2 is the idle screw, just broken? I don't know, any and every help would be appreciated.
