  1. Thanks, but I just found it. I dont need a full Vapor system, just this lap counting system is good enough. Thanks for the idea though. Here is what I was talking about. https://www.tremx.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=DRC_MONITOR_XP1_LAP_TIMER
  2. I was hoping someone in here might be able to help me. So time back I saw a handlebar pad(the square kind) that had a timer/computer inside of it. I have looked everywhere, no luck. It was a little rectangler computer.
  3. Ok so I took off the carb again and looked for anything I may have missed. The needle jet is there, the needle is straight and fits snug. I looked at all the orfaces and cleaned out everything again. Put carb pack on bike.....same result. Wont run with air filter on, so I took it off. When you give it gas, fuel sprays back through the intake of the carb all over the front fender. A good amount of mist is coming out.
  4. Hey guys, just picked up at 2003 KLX110, my first, and I have already run into problems. Overall it's very clean and completely intact except the air filter box is gone and a uni filter is in its place. I bought it from a guy who didnt know much about it because it was donated to him. He never rode it. I bought it knowing it would not start, and figured it was a gunked up carb from sitting for years. I got this thing home and pulled the carb, cleaned out all the jets, blew compressed air through them and looked through a light to make sure everything was clean. Then I cleaned the carb itself. Put it all back together and it will only barley stay idleing when the throttle is fully open. It's running rich with the stock jets in there, 80main 38pilot. The new spark plug I put in is black from just running a couple minutes. If you pull the rubber plug off the vaccume nipple on the intake manifold and remove the air filter all together it runs better but not like it should. Also if you shut off the gas and let the carb run lean it runs pretty good right before it dies from lack of fuel. I removed the choke all together while I had the carb off also. I have not run into a problem like this before. Any ideas?

    Stock jetting sizes FCR 2007

    It's been awhile since I rejetted my 2007 RMZ250. I forgot the stock Main Jet and Pilot jet sizes. I did search, but came up with nothing. Also the stock position for the fuel screw.

    How do you get motivated?

    I really don't need motovation because it's something that I love to do. Sometimes I just can't wait for the weekend to play with the bikes and do routine maint. afterwords during the week. I have been this way my whole life. I also mix it up so I don't get bored with one thing. I might race MX one weekend. Race ATV's the next weekend, supermoto on the backroads the next, or just take them all to the desert for the weekend to have fun. It's my passion. If you don't have a passion for it and you cant get motivated to ride because you worry about the maint. then it might be time to hang it up for awhile. Sell your bikes. Once there gone then you will see how much you miss them. Buy a new bike two years from then and you will have that same new fun you once did long ago.
  9. Looks like my bike. Nice choice.

    Just find your nearist storm drain, or chuck it into a dumpster. Actually don't do that, call your local auto parts stores. Kragen, PepBoys, Car Quest, etc..........usually they take your old oil for free. If not then find a recycling center in your area, they almost always take used oil.

    I change the oil and filter on all my new bikes at the 1st hour of operation. For one the quality of the oil is usually poor, and the bike is going to shed most of it's assembly lube, metal fragments, and clutch fibers during this time. I get it out and put some quality oil in there, NO SYNTHETICS yet. Not till it's completely broken in. The cause of hard shifting is usually always contaminated oil. Another thing I like to do is check the valves while the oil is draining, after the first hour of operation. That way I can record where the valves were at when the bike was brand new, so I have something to compare to later on.

    Yes, it does sound better with the baffle out. Man, that thing is restrictive! Imagine how it will sound with a performance exhaust!!!!!!!!

    Sand dunes, no paddles? Air your stock tires down to 3psi. That will help a little, but there is still a good chance you may get stuck once or twice. As far as the air box lid goes, unless you have other performance enhansing parts on you bike, removing the box lid is just about useless. Basically it will just be louder, and it might seem as though it's running faster, but it's all sound. The minimal gain does not outweigh the noise or the fact that alot more crap is going to get in your air box. Especially running in the dunes. My suggestion, leave it on untill you get other mods. first. The baffle can be removed with no ill effects on the engine. You will have to remove the single bolt holding the baffle to the pipe. Then pull/slide the baffle out. Mine was hard to pull out, so I warmed up the pipe and it slid right out. Others have had better luck. When you get the baffle out of the pipe you will know why the stock pipe is so quiet. It's very restrictive. Toss it aside, I keep all my parts even though I will never use it again. Don't just toss it in the trash. Refer to your owners manual found underneath the seat, there are vague instructions in there about baffle removal.

    05 YFZ450 Misses out & pops loud

    We need more info. How long did it sit? Was there gas in the carburator when it was sitting? Is your gas in the tank fresh? Is this the first time you have ridden it since it's been sitting? How many hours on the engine? When was the last time the valves were inspected/adjusted?
