    01 YZ125 Jetting Issue after rebuild (Video)

    how did you repair this? did you buy new powervalves? chances are if you just pressed it back together its probably fallen out again, had the same problem on my 99. If this wasn't fixed properly the powervalve won't open at the same time as the other, but once rpms come up theres enough pressure to open it up, that sound may be the one valve fluttering momentarily before it revs up.

    88.. yz250.. no start.. no spark

    coil i think is grounded when bolted to the frame, i think the ohm specs are between 0.2 and 0.3 ohm

    2001 Frame

    since they changed the motor in 2000 and changed the body style in 2002/2003 i think you may be looking between 2000 and 2002, that is to find an identical one, if the motor mount positions never changed during the motor change then i would think a 96 to 2000 would fit as well although not sure which years the linkage may have changed. the frame changed in 2003 this may also be an opportunity to think about upgrading to a 2003+ style...may increase final resale

    concerning noise?

    hey guys just recent rebuilt my 03 yz250. i replaced the crank, bearings, piston, rings, plating, and two of the tranny bearings. ive probably have about 10hrs on the motor and its seems to have this whining noise that runs with the revs, seems to quit a bit when the clutch is pull in but not by much though, its hard to pin point which side of the motor its on, im running 10w-40 synthetic oil @ 750ml, i just pull the clutch apart again and everything seemed sound. The sound seems to get louder the harder i am on the clutch so im wondering if its clutch related? engine performance is excellent, at this point im wondering if its something serious or if im i just hearing things. any info will be appreciated thanks in advance heres a short clip:

    yz125 throttle not responding well

    yep sounds like its running really rich, pull the carb apart, make sure one of the jets hasn't come loose and as blackwoodz said check the float height, heres an article on how to do it properly: http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/347305-is-your-two-stroke-running-rich-read-here/
