    Cutting stock 07 silencer?

    I've done it man it's simple and just a touch louder, no real change in power. Cut the can of the silencer from the bottom it's easier to drill the holes the bolts go in as opposed to drilling holes and re-riveting the end cap, and you'll have to cut the packing and the inner tube, as well a couple slots have to be cut in the inner tube at the end so it's small enough to fit into the end cap as the full inner tube is tapered if that makes any sense to you lol. Start by cutting about 5 1/2" off the can and work the core until it fits, good luck.

    Frame Paint

    I did mine on my 03 KX 250 with spray on bed liner and now 4 years and 2 owners later it is just starting to chip off the bottom. make sure you prime first and then let the final coat of bed liner dry for a week or so and it will be very strong. And unlike normal paint when it gets scuffed up just spray some tire shine or armor all and it will look like new again. It is really thick though so make sure to tape off all the threads well. And for added durability get some clear vinyl to stick on over where your boots rub and it'll look good for years.

    broken axle block, can not loosen wheel , please help

    How about take a pair of vice grips and put one jaw in the hole in the axle bolt and clamp the other jaw down really tight to the back of the axle block then try the impact wrench, in my experience all you need is just something to hold it that little bit to pop the nut off with a impact wrench.

    Can you get a ticket for..?

    Deal with this all the time in my town, bottom line is, every time your on the road you run a risk of getting a ticket, seems as if cops around here have very skewed views on the laws of dirtbikes on the roads or shoulders of the road. Some officers around here have their own bikes and wont take a second glance at you crawling down the road, even wave to you, while other ****head officers will throw the book at you just for having your bike off your property. My advice is just take it slow and hope for the best, its what I've been doing for the past 4 years, goodluck.

    UPS shipping rant

    hahaha, I thought I would be the first to comment on how terrible UPS is for shipping things across the boarder to Canada. 2 times I have dealt with them and both times I was over a month waiting for the package to arrive, if they don't loose it or ship it to the wrong address they hold onto it and wait for me to call to pay money so they can "release" it. Here is the most recent one of a intake I ordered for my car. ST. JOHN'S, NL, CA 06/07/2010 9:17 DELIVERED ST. JOHN'S, NL, CA 03/07/2010 9:28 THE ADDRESS IS IN A REMOTE AREA AND DELIVERIES ARE NOT MADE DAILY ST. JOHN'S, NL, CA 02/07/2010 9:02 THE PACKAGE WAS NOT DISPATCHED ST.

Just thought I`d share my experience with UPS

    YZ250 Reed cage and carb boot, possible porting option??

    I don't know what it looks like on a 250 but on my 01 125 I knife edged the middle part and made it slightly larger, don't know if it did anything positive because I did several other things to the bike at the same time, but it definatly didn't make it run any worse, I'd give it a try!

    yz 125 rads

    Wow lots of people with 01 125's haha same bike I just picked up and restored.
  12. fatchellparty

    2001 YZ125: Recognize this part??

    The white plastic washer goes on the drain plug I believe, the rest must be internal engine seals. I have the same bike and just stripped everything down minus splitting the cases and the white plastic piece is the only one i recognize.

    Swingarm/Linkage freeplay?

    Yeah I believe I narrowed it down to the center bolt in the triangle piece oh well guess its time to replace them.

    Swingarm/Linkage freeplay?

    Thanks for the quick reply, so you notice no free-play what so ever with just the swingarm and linkage assembled to the bike? And believe me I am no stranger to shitty linkage bearings, I used to own a KX and the lower shock bearing had to be inspected weekly on that beast. Even with all new bearings in the KX there was still a small amount of movement just wondering if the YZ was the same way.
