  1. I did ride with someone with the max rpm set up that was the 167.... For him it was a 10 hour piston change engine... FYI.... Nothing for me is fun enough to warrant that.... He was always on it though....
  2. I ordered the service manual but yesterday my son fouled a plug running down the street. I though that was weird.... Compression test read 120 at 4800 feet... Normally my rule of thumb anything below 130 its time for a top end... But this was with yz125's and yz85's is it the same for this bike... 13.1 hours on the top end... With the yz85 I was doing every 15 hours or so a top end maybe it has to be sooner on this bike?

    TC85 2018 Desert Tank

    Looks like tuff jugg has a cap and jug combo for quick filling..... Maybe that is the answer.....

    Meaning if I got the tank then I would have to use ktm radiator side panels?

    TC85 2018 Desert Tank

    Has anyone found one.... My son is racing this..... Was there that much of a change on the sx85 for 17 to make it not work on the Husky? That was the only one I could find?

    Yz125 to 144c bore kit?

    He uses a forged piston then all that you said with an oem jug.. on the pipe it has the feeling of a stock yz250 but that is in a very small rpm range ....that being said it is fun... I have had bikes that were done by gore and they were good but I have had a few friends that have had qaulity control issues just in my small circle over the last two years... Also I lost zero top end... It screams...
  9. So I did not go the stroked because it was a new engine... So I went with basically a 144 bore then he ported and went with a cut head via bills heads...then put an FMF fatty and shorty... Vforce 4 Now I am a desert trail rider that prefers the mid to top .. dyno wise it was it was close to 45.... Once it is on the pipe it is a rocket and revs to no end... I still am running pump but I am always 5000 and above .... I have had a lot of different bikes and set up and for me it is one of the most fun bikes I have had... If it would have gearing like the 250x for me it would be perfect.. or a 7th gear;)

    OTD pricing for 250x

    Need to put the year... If I would have went with a 17 I would have saved another 500... But man I like the blue rims🤣
  11. Man for that much I would just call Derek Harris and get a full set up... Mine pulls like a stock yz250 on the top end... It was a huge upgrade... I change my piston every 40 hours and have about 100 hours on the bike this season and no issues... His stuff is backed by dyno results..m which is not everything but it's something..

    125 or 250???

    I own both... A 250x and yz150.... For me I love the yz150 but you have to really be much more precise with clutch control... Be way smoother and keep your momentum up which I think is more fun.. now a couple of things... I live 5000 ft and up so we loose some HP... Now the yz250 I am for sure faster, easier maintenance and more stable in high speed desert... Maybe go 125 and upgrade to a 150... It really does upgrade the power.... Hard call both are great bikes... At the end of the day you can do everything on a 125 you can a 250 but when it gets super tech you have to do everything right on the 125 and on the yz250 you can make mistakes and have the power bail you out ...

    125 or 250???

    Agreed if you kids rid a lot I would not be to worried about the size.... I think the 125 teaches them better habits but once they have throttle/clutch control they should be able to right anything... you never mentioned how big your 15 year old is...

    Anyone run a lectron on there yz250?

    Yz250 yz150 have Lectrons and KTM 150 and yz85 have Smartcarbs ... I ride from 3000 to 12000 always smooth always great ...I had to adjust the rod once and the power jet once then never touched then again... for me a good head cut and metered carb is the way to go for our area...
