    Weak/ no spark

    check your coils resistance without the plug cap... you might only need a cap and not the coil.. could also be bad cdi box and /or stator . i think you will find that the box is not available but there is an upgrade that is a new style box and a couple wiring harnesses-- i just had a customer's 2001 250 mxc with this sort of issue

    OEM Bearing cross reference

    i believe from the yamaha part number the bearing you need is a 6203 bearing -- yamaha part numbers are a bit funny that way -- the other bearing you need is a 6004... 9330(6-004)26--- which measures what you said therefore the 9330(6-203)36 is a 6203 bearing which is 17x40x12 .. should be a number on the bearing itself also or do the measure deal and use the chart from a previous poster

    XR200R play in shifter shaft

    i agree with chuck to an extent -- i only find one part number for the shaft -- but anyway -- the clutch cover when installed has a protrusion inside which holds the shaft over so all the mechanism is in the proper place --

    help me figure out my 2009 ktm 250 xcf rekluse model

    i have been dealing with Rekluse for years and have yet to find any problem or question that they couldn't answer --just call them -- you can talk to an actual person and if they can't help you out i would be AMAZED .. i just talked to them about one of the original z-start clutches which has been discontinued for about 13 years and guess what !!!! there was someone who knew all the answers.. computers are very good tools but NOTHING beats a true conversation

    Pirelli MT21 Front

    that tire has seen lots of pavement miles and was not balanced -- they tend to "hop" up and down when they are out of balance -- any tire will suffer the same problem

    F7 emulsion tube

    DO not try to force the needle jet (part #11) down into the float bowl --it comes out the top toward the slide .. if you take an old main jet (hex type mikuni) and screw it into the bottom then you can lightly tap on the jet to get it out -- just make sure one of the flats on the jet is aligned with the positioning pin in the carb body so you don't damage that -- it is what keeps the needle jet in proper position---- also be sure to replace the o ring on the needle jet setter -- #26 in the second diagram-- the needle jet setter is #25-- if that oring leaks it is like having no main jet

    XR650L dies randomly

    i have had many similar issues with customer bikes -- sounds like you cdi box is going south.. it is in the box with the battery .. costs about 100 bux - i have replaced a bunch of them and it has worked every time

    2005 CRF450 near impossible to start/no idle

    clean the carb and adjust the valves -- fresh gas --that should solve your problems

    1974 YAMAHA YZ250

    as for the clutch cable -- if you have the original even in bad shape -- contact motionpro and if you send the cable they can build one to match -- pretty fast turn around and excellent work --i use them a lot in my repair business
  11. i wouldn't bother with the wheel bearings -- if you doubt then just get some new ones --or just ride it until you do need new ones -- seems like yamaha front wheel brgs go away fairly often ..

    What is this bolt that fell off my xc-w?

    looks like a brake line banjo bolt -- does you bike now have a stoplight switch on the rear brake ?? if so --- someone dropped that dolt when they installed the switch and could not find it so ... if it is a 10 mm bolt with 1.0 thread -- brake line banjo

    2012 wont idle or take light throttle

    the diaphragm in the pics is not an accelerator pump --it is part of the air cut valve -- your problem is something plugged or restricted in the pilot circuit.. pilot jet , pilot passage , transition hole (small hole right under the engine side of the slide) or something in this part of the idle circuit

    Who Makes a 54 Tooth Rear Sprocket?

    if you search PBI sprockets --they will make anything you want -- and the ones i have had made were not that expensive

    Need help on 03 xr 400

    because of the auto de-comp a compression test is misleading -- you should do a leak down test -- way more informative --- these xr's are almost bullet broof if you change oil often and keep the air filter clean and sealed -- good luck with your ride
