    125cc Pit Bike

    Sounds like a vacuum leak between carb and intake runner. This can cause high idle and hard to start problems. You need to fix the stripped bolt problem

    No spark after full rebuild - 08 CRF250R

    Check the stator pickup coil wire solder spots. Where the wires attach to the pickup coil very fine shavings can creat a small bridge from 1 lead to the other causing intermittent spark. Clean off debris no matter how insignificant it may appear. Also make sure ground wire from coil is clean nd right

    Stuck half way through revolution

    Sounds like it's out of time. Recheck your valve timing. If that's the case and you turned the motor past the stuck point you probably bent a valve

    2006 450f opinions. ?

    Did you notice a big difference with the 08 clamps? I too have an 06 and wanted to hear first hand that it's a big improvement in Corning . I have had this bike for several years and it's been a great bike. Make sure to change oil regularly and clean your air filter.

    SSR 110 carb problems

    If bike is equipped with a molkt carb they are known to cause problems. Like the above post you can try reject or buy a makuni vm 26 carb from tboltusa.com. You can also post question on planetminis.com for help. Tbolt also sells jet kits for the molkt carb

    clutch rod stuck in mainshaft..HELP ME!

    I would have to agree that the end might be mushroomed. That rod must be aftermarket since its hollow. I own a 06, and a 08 model and the rods are solid.

    Pit bike won't start

    Try disconnecting your kill switch. Also try touching the cyl. Head with spark plug when checking for spark, not the exhaust
  11. You can also remove oil filter and check for shavings that would help verify a worn out crank

Testing seperate Electrical systems: Make sure all electrical connections are tight and you have a solid ground from the engine to the frame. Disconnect Kill button (will run/spark without it) The coil is actually three parts coil wire cap all three screw together like a wood screw , clockwise Make sure you have a good spark plug (Pit bikes take the same plug as CRF50 & KLX110) Testing seperate Electrical Components STATOR: (Once you have the ignition cover off) Visual test: Inspect the coil bar , if you see any bulges or discoloration its likley worn out Voltage Meter will be set on AC for testing output The stator should have 80-100VAC (usually black/red) Set meter to OHMs OPEN circuit or infinity OHMs is bad COIL: Set meter to OHMs OPEN circuit or infinity OHMs is bad
  13. It's burning oil. Sounds like your top end worn. Could also be worn valve stem seals and or valve guides. You need to tear it down for inspection. If your cylinder had grooves in it , it too need replacement due to sucking in dirt. Clean air filter often to avoid this

    trannsmission makes clicking noise when moving

    I had that problem on my yx160. When in 3rd gear it felt like there was a bald patch on the sprocket. I ended up buying a new trans gear set and shift drum assy from tbolt. After install problem no longer present. The weird thing is couldn't see any problems when parts where inspected. All gears where perfect. The kit was 150.00 plus gaskets. Pretty cheap compared to crf parts

    pitster pro x2 125 brakes

    I too had a problem bleeding my bikes rear brakes. Nothing worked until I used a hand held vacuum pump. As far as brake pads, maybe try tboltusa.com

    Thumpstar 120! GEARBOX HELP

    Tboltusa.com has trans gear sets and shift drum kits. Check them to see if there kits will work for bike
  17. erichshonda

    How does this happen

    It looks like the bolt that holds the primary gear wasn't torqued..

    Counter Shaft Seal!

    The spring is part of the seal. Just replace it and you should be fine

    chinese pit bike revs out and dies help!

    Sounds like a lean condition. Check for clogged jets in the carb and check for an air leak at the carb connections.

    Whirring or whining noise after rebuild

    Did you install the timing chain tensioner in the fully collapsed position before installing it? Sounds like the timing chain may be to tight.

    2006 crf450r over heating

    If the radiator is overfilled, the system will purge out the access when hot, this is normal. Usually coolant level will be just above the fins when looking inside. If the level get below the fins, then you may have a problem
  24. erichshonda

    Please help!

    Never use the trans check bolt on these models. It's located to low. Just put 690cc and you will be fine

    2007 CRF not starting **Frustrated**

    Are you installing the timing chain tensioner in the collapsed position before installing? If not, everything is in a bind. Install collapsed, then release tension.
