  1. It also could be your starting relay module. Then tend to go bad on the 03-04 due to age....
  2. SKF seals are the one of the best out on the market. I work on suspension as a side business and never had complaints about their quality. If you are compressing the forks during trailering, it might be a good idea to get fork bleeders. This will let out the compressed air and take the stress off the forks. Several factors causing a seal to fail. A nick in the tube, over compression, and mud/dirt. Keeping the forks and wipers clean is your best way to stop a seal failure.
  3. Yeah, "In theory", but I don't think it works that way. I was just reading an article about car tires and nitrogen and thought it may apply to the Tubliss System.
  4. Has anyone thought about using Nitrogen to fill the inner tube? Since Nitrogen Atoms are larger than Oxygen Atoms it may make a difference in the loss of air pressure.
  5. It is true, they recommend only two have the tube for one year. However, I going on over two without an issue. I carefully inspect my tube system every time I change to new tires.
  6. That is an old style Motion Pro Coolant Recovery Tank. There are better alternatives. Google Dirt Bike Recovery Tank.
  7. Mostly deceleration popping. It does Backfire on occasion. I put a new diaphragm in the ACV and a new O-Ring gasket. I am confident that it should be working. The 04 WR never had a AIS system. I agree, there must be some sort of Air Leak, but I can not isolate it.
  8. OK. I have completed a lot work on the Carb. I replaced the plunger on the Hot Start and replaced the Choke with new parts. I also replaced the ACV diaphragm. I got the bike running well and it now idles. I still having trouble with the backfire. I raised the Needle by one clip and reduced the Pilot from a 48 to a 50. These have made improvements, but it still backfires but not as severe. Any thoughts?
  9. How can you test if the Hot Start is not fully closed? I do think the Hot Start does not "Feel" right when I pull on it.
  10. I have an 04 WR450. I have been having problems with the FCR CARB. The bike will not start unless the choke is out and it will not hold idle when the choke is in. This occurs even if the bike is warm. The hot Start does effect the starting or idling when the choke is in. It does make the bike sound smoother when the choke is out. The bike backfires real bad when the choke is in and not so much when the choke is out. The bike has a new top end rebuild and I did replace the seals and gaskets on the CARB. All of the Carbs jets are clean and. My diagnosis I got some sort of air leak, but I do not know where. Any ideas? Thanks..

  12. Normally I would not buy that bike. It was Yamaha's earliest try at the 4 Stroke water-cooled motor. it has a lot of starting/Carb issues. However, a California Plate is everything. That is what your are paying for. That is why a $1k bike costs $1k more.
  13. Thanks, I saw the Race Tech link before and I thought it was off. This is greast.
  14. I rebuilding a set of 03 CR125 Forks for a friend. They KYB which is a little unusual considering Honda used Showa for the most part. Does anyone have a listing for the Fork Oil Level or amount of oil required? My research shows either 65mm or 100mm from the top of tube. I would like to more certain. A snap of the Honda Manual would be nice. Thanks in advance
