    bike is dead

    ok, so ive been working on it coil is good, timing is spot on, valves perfect, still the second i hit the starter button i get a backfire about every 2 revolutions every time. havent looked at the pilot yet but wouldnt it at least start with choke on even with a cloged pilot jet? could a dealer test the stator and pickup coil or is there somewhere special you would have to take it? thanks everyone

    bike is dead

    while riding my bike began to cut out and backfire, almost like it was hitting the rev limiter, except it wouldnt build enough rpm's to take off. a couple times i was able to get it to open up ans i made it back on the road. now it wont start at all, just backfires as it cranks over. any sugestions?

    Gear ratios: does it matter?

    speedometer wont go that high, i know on an xr400 a 15/33 ratio was around 150, dont know if he was wide open or not but thats a bit fast for the average dirtbike

    Hard to start

    on my 05, with a good charged battery i press the start button and the relay clicks, no engine turnover at all, does this say a bad relay? or can a dealer check the relay? i have checked all the grounds and with the starter on the bench it cranks fine, of course theres no load on it, but i'm open to suggestions

    CS Sprocket Nut-loose again.,

    i was told that using the oem sprocket helps as it has the rubber on the outside, and i was also told to crank it pretty tight
