    03 yz 125 won't start.

    Hi my housemates yz 125 won't start , had a top end 8 hours ago, bike ran fine, new plug, clean filter , clean carb, clean fuel, if we bump start its start and runs rides well with no power loss, just won't idle. Have checked for air leaks , 1 wire has cane off the cdi on 2 occasions , could this be an electrical issue? Have checked earths and cleaned terminals on cdi. Any info would be great cheers.

    Don't get me wrong guys I think it's great she gives her all, the only way to learn is to make mistakes. She gets well forward now with her starts.

    Sorry wrong button, She tells me to leave her to learn by herself because apparently I know nothing. Here's how her starts are working out for her. She is really going the hard way about things.

    Pit bike instead of KX65 for 9 year old?

    Out daughters first bike was a rm65 (kx). After a few rides she was all good, I just repeatedly told her "the bike will only go as fast as you make it go". Kids pic up on things pretty quick

    65 top end when to replace rings

    Cheers for the input fellas. Found a good looking home made compression tester , thanks to the search tab, will get parts and build today. I have the rings on the shelf ready to go but don't have a gasket set. When I rebuilt the bike gaskets were put on dry. Should I have a new gasket kit on hand also? Sapper my understanding of compression test . Remove carby and reed block, remove expansion chamber, block exhaust hole and intake hole(where reeds go) remove plug place tester unit in plug hole. Kick over while reeding gauge
  11. Hi my daughter has a rm65 (kx65) had a top end rebuild 40 hours ago. This is her first bike and has been kept ringing when she forgets to change up she just holds it on. I was given a set of replacement rings and would like a few ideas about when to replace them. Always run 32:1 castor927 and 98pump gas Cheers

    More progress has been made, few more edges to do and some new mud flaps to bend up. Went to purchase locks for rear door, 3 places I went to had 1 only, all same style but all different sizes. :banghead Have decided to paint floor black and walls and inner roof white ,just to tidy things up a bit. Kids test the roof struts
