    is there any simple way I can confirm that that crank is bad with out splitting the case. I know it probably is. but just wanted to know for sure before I buy it. thanks

    not sure on what happend

    spark plug is fine. I dont think the jetting got lean cause the plug didn't show it. I stored it by rinning it out of gas and having it in my heated garage

    not sure on what happend

    put a new wisco forged piston in my 04 rm 125 last spring. thought i did everything right, but then i heard u have to drill a hole in the piston for oil lucubration?( i didn't) are you supposed to? it ran fine all summer maybe put 10 hours on the new topend. rode it 3 times after the winter first 2 were fine. but on the 3rd ride it lost its snappiness so i rode it wide open for a few seconds then it stalled. at first i thought i fouled a plug. but it had no compression. so i opened it up and this is what i found, first i thought it was detonation, but now im thinking a piece of metal got on top of the piston by the looks. but there is not any of the ring missing so im not sure. but one side of the ring is melted a little bit to the piston. the cylinder is ok. and i always mixed 32:1. also i always let i warm up properly. the spark plug looked a little rich if anything

    Suzuki ltr reliability

    i have a 08 honda 700xx great on trails, ok in pits , terrible on track. so i am thinking about trading for a ltr. found a person interested that has a really clean 08 ltr. but i hear there are tranny problems with the ltrs. he says it has about 20 hours on it and has not had a single problem. so i guess my big question is will it be reliable, will it have problems, i keep right up on my maintenance always, so i don't mind using good oil and changing it often. but i don't want to have to split the cases or anything like that. thanks in advance
