    @ronbuell Thanks for the suggestions! I just replaced the rad fluid with some engine ice and that helped a lot, but I'll still look into those options because I am trail riding. Thanks!

    So what's odd is my issue is kinda of the opposite of yours. Mine wouldnt start on choke only with it off. If I turn the choke on after it starts it will stall right out. But started just fine without the choke. Idle was a bit odd, seemed a little high and then would drop a bit but I could control it with the idle screw. I've blown out every opening I can see. Not sure which passage way would cause this rich running condition rendering the choke useless. Insulator between carb and head is new along with orings. Everything looks correct, havnt run the bike today since last nights recent carb clean. I'll probably pull it apart one more time since it's still off the bike. Last time I did run the bike it was in a garage where I had some heat going so the bike wasnt very cold. Outside it was probably around 40°. But I'm told these bikes always need choke when cold until warmed up. I'm at sea level in southern Massachusetts. Stock jets and settings should be plenty sufficient for my setup. Hopefully whatever is blocked works it's way loose.

    Mine too, love the BSR42 conversion! If I were taller, I wouldn't worry about the button start, but after riding, short legs, age and exhaustion don't work for starting a big bore. Even though it's generally two kicks now max. I want the button just because I'm not getting younger.

    The lights were appr $55 Canadian funds also bought a couple rolls of 16 gauge wire, a switch, more wire connectors and a waterproof fuse holder. Entire light set up would be max $75 Canadian funds. Conversion on US - Canadian = costs me $1.33 Canadian for $1 US.

    or just get a complete carb... if po was the cave man we all suspect, the seat and threads for the mixture screw (or air screw, same) will be all mashed up and screw uo your idle and start, not worth &%$#@!ing around with.

    For a stock exhaust I would reduce the FI numbers a little and leave the IG numbers as-is to start with. See how it feels and make some adjustments from there.

    7mm spacer plus an extra gasket. Rod is out of a KTM I think? I just asked the owner to source the longest rod possible with the same small end pin size, he searched, then I made the crankshaft and spacer to suit. It might have been from a 144 KTM perhaps? He will remember I hope. This new 175 engine will need a longer rod again.

    Interesting. I actually decided to give it a stronger pull than before and it came out with a pop. No unscrewing. The spark plug boot says NGK on it (the brand). I got a spark when I just shoved the wire back into the connector boot and the bike ran just fine after. I wish the service manual was more detailed than this. Note, I did the foolish thing before I saw the replies here.😅😅

    A water cooled 450 pukes its guts out on XR terrain. I bought my Y2K XR4 new. Rode it for about 5 years stock. Then had the suspension done by a Pro. Money well spent. Then a few years later I had Thumper Racing put a 440 kit in it and then I put A MIkuni pumper carb on it. Transformed it into a killer go anywhere trail bike. Still XR reliable. I kept that bike for 19 years, only to let it go last year. I agree with changing the gearing, if you're not doing hi speed fire road riding. I put 14/47 on mine when it was running stock bore and it would climb anything. Try just the 14 front first to see what you think, as it's a cheap and easy swap.

    Two old guys are out playing golf on a Saturday morning. A funeral procession drives by the road alongside the green. One of the old guys puts his club back in the bag, takes off his cap, stiffens up and bows his head. The other guy feels kinda shamed into doing the same thing. After the procession passed, the second guy says: "That was mighty respectful of you." The first guy says: "It was the least I could do, we were married 40 years..." I had a good wife for 20 years. She gave me 5 children and we supported each other chasing our dreams. Then I was single-ish for 15 years, no problem meeting women, but I realized I am a difficult and picky cat. A heart is a fickle compass. Many seem wonderful, but could they live with me? I met this strange little lady. Not very big but tough as nails. She didn't know bikes, and as you can see, hasn't done well learning. A little bit'o whiskey throttle put her into the only post in sight. She laughed about the injuries and together we re-laced the new rim on the kitchen table. Now THERE is a keeper. She is the reason you guys don't see me here much any more. We ride together, we boat together, and yet she lets me go on my wild a$$ trips knowing that sometimes guys just gotta get together and spin mud. She is accepting of my redneck ways. She punches above her weight. Miles in the saddle and fast around the corners is ok with her. She trusts in me, and I in her. It was worth the wait to find her. She is a keeper...

    Orion didn't charge me any sales tax to ship one to Louisiana. I did pay the sales tax to Louisiana at the DMV when I registered the bike though. I'm not sure how it works in other states.

    Most people run a 13t off road and a 14t dual sport. That's it. If you want to make second gear more usable and the gap to 3rd and 4th smaller, you go 50/51/52t in the rear. If you want to make 1st gear more usable and have more top speed, you go 50/49/48 in the rear. Changing that sprocket means almost as much work as changing the rear. Not sure where the confusion lies.....

    I've got a 300 2-stroke and a 350 4-stroke. Until you've ridden both it's hard to explain why the 4-stroke is just way, way better for cruising down roads. I can't stand riding a two-stroke on the road for more than a mile or two. It just feels wrong to be riding up on the pipe at very small throttle openings. Kind of like driving a Formula 1 car at 10,000 RPM at 25 miles an hour using 2% throttle for long distances. It gets old, tiring and feels unnecessary very quickly in my opinion. The bike is just super high strung and ready to go. 2-strokes deliver their power at much lower RPM than 4-strokes which is part of it. Cruising at 6,000 RPM on a 4-stroke with a 12,500 or even 14,000 RPM red line is way different than cruising at 6,000 RPM on a 2-stroke that makes it's peak horsepower at 7,800 RPM. Changing the final drive to gear the 2-stroke bike way up would most certainly make it more tolerable though. Doc

    What most do not understand The bike has no fuel mixture in the cylinder when it is a cold engine............. By cycling the piston (kickstarter) it brings a proper fuel mixture into the cylinder in about 4-6 strokes (depending on cc's and carb type) easy stuff................ but yeah the kickback can be real on the older bikes. I had a TT500 Yamaha that send your tib and fib thru your knee cap!

    Lately, and I think for the foreseeable future, I have been using 0W 40 Mobil 1 European Formula in the engine side and the Rotella 5W 40 T6 in the clutch/transmission-side. The oils are cheap-as they come in the 4 qt/1-gallon jugs, and are at the local Walmarts. I've been changing both oils at just under 20 hours every time and with 315 hours and some 5,500 miles, everything is running and working great.

    Fun fact: There's Aussie's playing in your NFL, NBL and major league baseball. Indy, Nas car, AMA SX and MX, Rodeo etc etc etc. Where there is serious sport, you'll find an Aussie. When you consider our population, we're a sporting power house. You also need to consider that 68% of our total population are not actually Aussie's

    For some reason, we played it a lot at primary school. Our town has a team. My sister was on Good Morning America, or something like that when she was over there. She got to meet all the women from the Movie "A league of their own". The real women, not the actors, they each game her a signed player card. It's about the only thing she owns that i want .

    Only two rides in so far but liking it. Weather has been pretty cold and locally it is all rocks and roots. The warm day feel okay but the ground conditions have still be fozen with a lot of slippery leaves on the rocks. Only issue so far was a pinch flat on the rear today. I have Tubliss and Bibbs in my spare wheel and on my other bike 2015 450 XC-W. The Tubliss has really spoiled me on running soft tires in the roots and rocks. I was amazed how well I could run it throug the technical and tight and the lug it up a rocky hill all in third gear. Should be a good season looking forward to getting some time in the new bike.

    I would repair that in place with epoxy and a short time-sert. Does the crack going up into the threads, END in the root of a thread? Find the end of it, drill it with a tiny drill bit to keep it from continuing to crack. Drill hole oversize, tap it, smear epoxy into the newly cut threads, bury a time-sert ontop of it all. smear the drill bit/tap with vaseline to catch the chips.

    I don't believe I ever followed up on my buddy's 125 that we put the 183cc big bore kit and Scalvini pipe on. Installation is no problem if your used to 4t motors. Even if your not the single cam motor makes a good first time 4t motor to do a top end on. Also removed all the smog equipment. I went ahead upped the pilot and main jet a few sizes to begin with. Upon starting the bike it started up right away and revved nice and clean with no bogs. However it seemed to have a slight miss at 1/4 to half throttle. After trying a bunch of different combos without much luck I finally threw the stock jets in there and to my surprise it runs great! As expected the bike has a lot more power now. I would say a little under a stock choked up CRF 250L. On a steep road uphill the bike will pull a solid 10 mph fast than before. The Scalvini exhaust makes it sound like a real bike, but not obnoxiously loud. It's also much lighter. I think a foam air filter would also help a lot, but we haven't done that yet.

    Yes, it is 63 teeth. With the 6 speed transmission, 1st is almost like a granny gear. Here is the 2018 with the awful looking dragons tail and turn signals on long stalks replaced with small ones. Also installed are off road mirrors, hand guards, and home made mud guard for the chain. After the pictures were taken I installed a skid plate. With installation of big bore kit they removed the restrictor in the exhaust head pipe, and the silencer in the end of the muffler. It's not too much louder, and they say it will help performance of the 125. I drilled out the small holes in the silencer baffle, and the large exit opening and put it back in to reduce the noise somewhat. I am no longer into the noisy bikes, and can't tell that it hurt performance except at high rpm. With all accessories and full tank of gas it weighs 235#.

    With every passing year I better understand the less is more lifestyle. A 125 to 250 cc mild mannered bike is enough for me now, and 100 mile range is more than enough. Most rides are not more than about 50 miles between gas stations.

    My daughter has one of these and loves it, coming off a TTR125LE. At 5-1, it was too tall. After installing Beta’s 2” lowering kit and a Seat Concepts 1” lower seat, it fits her well. She now enjoys being able to ride without restriction, and we can do dual sport rides. This is an underrated bike IMO. Here she is getting ready to start her first dual sport ride.

    We just got one yesterday. Front brake takes some pull to get it to stop. Maybe it will get better once it's broke in. Clutch engages way late in the lever throw. I'll see if I can adjust that some. I love the suspension for the rougher trails. Over all this thing is a huge upgrade from the KLX 140G and it's street legal.

    No, I did not remove the end cap. I used some long skinny needlenoses and twisted it so that it would partialy stick out of the hole. One side of the end of the db killer plug is flared out so you gotta get it lined up just right and then give it a really big yank and it will pop out. It's kind of a pain but it's worth it. I also twisted the end crumpling it, and making it smaller than the muff hole. it was easier to pull it out this way. I will not be sticking it back in so no worries. It did fall all the way down the exhaust pipe and I thought I might have to pull the muffler off but I just used one of those spring loaded grabbers and twisted and pulled it up enough to grab with needle nose pliers. then I crumpled the end and yanked it out. It's totally worth the hassle.

    Bigger bore creates more vacume and often takes a smaller jet to compensate. Glad you got it dialed in.

    I broke C1, C7, and T1 and had a disc bulge between C5 and C6 from a dirt bike accident. (reference: Stay Safe and Keep Those Eyes Up! - read my followup post) I rode out on the back of my buddy's bike on rough singletrack, then rode in the back of a police department SUV for two miles down a really rough dirt road, and then finally on to a stretcher and into an ambulance. No one had a clue how injured I was at the time yet, even with all that, I have physically healed 100% with no paralysis or numbness. It's not the injury itself but the severity of the injury that matters. So, I'm not going to hate on the medical crew for doing what they thought was right at the time.

    You never want to throw a fellow motorcyclist under the bus but I see what you guys mean. I would bet he was a easier person to get along with when his brain was fully supplied with the proper animal fats people need to think clearly and calmly. 80 percent of vegans I meet ( lots in Portland) suffer from rage fits. It’s something their not getting.

    Hello to all. We wanted to inform you about the's state of health. Hit in the vertebrae, Brian had surgery last night at Tampa hospital. Surgery is good and Brian woke up. He is currently in intensive care but doctors will not be able to decide on his condition in several days... Brian is a very brave and strong boy and is aware of everything! We wanted to thank all the people who support us. Of course I do not thank the people who, on the other hand, still allow themselves to criticize him in such moments! We will keep you informed when we know more. Moreau family... Racer X has reached out to the track medical team but have been told information can't be disclosed due to HIPAA laws. We will await more information and update this story as it becomes available.
