    B.A.S.S.-brake actuated suspension system as it was known. More of a gimmick than anything else

    Those bikes had ignition is that overheated fairly easy. When it doesn’t start you need to check for spark before anything else

    1982 YZ80 Help

    You need to do a compression test first. These bikes had zero low end power, so maybe nothing is wrong

    '82 RM125

    Actually 81 was the first year..... but they look identical besides stickers
  12. That’s what I thought and tried to explain to no avail
  13. I’ve read here and there about people twisting the Throttle once or twice as part of the starting procedure: On a bike with a Excelerator pump, I get it but on your old vacuum style carburetor, is there really any point to doing this?

    Pull off the ignition side cover, put the bike in neutral, see if you can turn the flywheel by hand. If not the motor is locked up
