    Why do I keep going through rear wheel bearing?

    I believe in packing the bearings but otherwise , well said. The spacer is most likely the cause for repeated failure And the harbor freight driver kit is pretty cool I’ve been lucky to have one to use

    I have heard race mechanics sometimes use thin grease and or little of it... reason being they believe it is less friction. Their bearings only need two last one race. I don’t wanna do bearings after every ride

    Ok. What are they supposed to be full of ? There is a reason why it’s called “packing bearings “. They most certainly are supposed to be full of grease And that is why you should always packed them before you install.

    Leak from center of motor

    Does that gasket seal the transmission section or just the crankcase ? In any case Looks like trans oil and the only real fix requires a complete tear down. Bummer. 😩

    I’d say it’s tranny oil There is no gasket there. The case halves are sealed together with “rtv” that’s a lot of work to just re-seal... I think you would be crazy to not plan on doing a rebuild on some level replacing crank bearings water pump and tranny bearings etc. The parts are relatively cheap and since you are going to have to tear the entire engine down to fix the leak it is a great time to do it
  6. I have a 2012 I bought new. Been an awesome bike.. I would check timing and make sure it hasn’t skipped 80 hours is a good bit of time even with good maintenance including valve adjustments. It could probably use a new timing chain and piston if it hasn’t already.

    I’m changing my mix ratio to 100:1

    It’s awesome in my saws... but I’m not sure about running it long term in a bike there is a lot more load on a bike crank Even though the saw runs full tilt more. manufactures guarantee anything I think they just bet it’ll last long enough to not be a “ claim”

    Ever heard of Opti-2 ? Two stroke oil guaranteed at 100:1 for ANY 2t engine I use it in my chainsaws and it is clean. Sounds crazy for a bike I know... I have used it in a 05 yz 250 Ran good and no drip out the pipe I’m a 4 stroke guy myself. But thought Id throw it out there.

    WR250R won't start.

    I would check for spark at the plug first. If it has sat for that long it definitely needs clean fuel though Also verify that it has good compression but if it ran before there is no reason it wouldn’t have compression now

    Bearing stuck on crank

    Dude I didn’t backpedal anything When the heat is necessary (for anything) I usually suggest a hair dryer because not everybody has a heat gun.... I’m simply saying it’s not a magic bullet. And depending on somebody’s skill level.... it may not work for them So maybe the hairdryer didn’t work B KOZ you forgot to plug it in I don’t know and I don’t care But I do know how to replace bearings with heat and cold

    Bearing stuck on crank

    Really dude ? Have you done it with either ? Because I’ve done it with both.... The bearing doesn’t care what heats it up And I am not saying that this is a guaranteed 100% deal But it’s easy to try , most of the time it works (Worked a few times for me ). And it is really cool to see the physics work..

    No, they don’t. but you can get 400 hours out of a Yamaha crank.... Put in a fresh set of bearings at 200 😎 I hear there is a good trick for doing it Peace.

    Wow BS ideas huh. What I and “7654” are talking about is not an “idea” And sure as hell not bs. It’s a “proven method” that requires almost no tools and as such it can be done at home. Take your bike to the shop now your tire might be low on air pressure. We wouldn’t want you to risk blowing it up!!

    It never ceases to amaze me, the aversion that some people have to learning something new and simple.... 🙃

    LOL. Don’t thank me I didn’t create the physical laws I just try to use them to my advantage 😎 And That’s affirmative. Works on all other bearings as well water pump, transmission, etc.
