    2015 YZ 250 FX starting issue

    UPDATE: i finally was able to pull the bike down last night, I have spark, and fuel pressure, and surely I wouldn't have lost any compression from a simple wash, so what am I missing?

    2015 YZ 250 FX starting issue

    After a really muddy ride, I Decided to deep clean the bike. I spent a hour or so washing it, and once I was getting ready to load up, it wouldn't start. I covered the air box and exhaust, nothing got in the air box. I'm almost 100% sure its an electrical issue due to the over-exposed electronics. It will spin over all day, and I hear the fuel pump kicking on, but I'm not sure where to start diagnosis, any assistance would be helpful. Bike ran perfectly prior to this, and has never given me any trouble after washing, and really dirty rides.

    Kick start issue

    With no air filter on it, it very well could have sucked in dust and grit and damaged the engine. If you do get it running, and want to keep it they way, get some type of filter on it.

    i currently have the stock gearing, and am running about 4500 rpm to do 70. all i ride is highway/interstate. how much is a sprocket increase to a 16/17 front sprocket going to help me?

    BR8ES IN YZ 125

    I recently picked up a yz 125, and it has a br9es plug in it, but I've always owned 250s, and only have br8es plugs to replace it if it fouls...is it Acceptable to run br8es in a yz 125?

    2007 YZ450F Fuel in oil, bike quit, won't start

    Possibly damaged the rings? with the crankcase so full, the crankcase pressure from blow by could've built enough pressure to damage the rings..... just a thought......

    I recently got LED turn signals for my 05 KLR 650, and after installation, whenever i moved the switch left or right, all four came on.....Any ideas? Old turn signals worked perfectly previously.

    How long since you've ridden?

    Since February 12th :((((( Sunk my KTM, having to do a total rebuild
  10. Why not just use a wired one? Ive never had a problem with wired ones, and the wires are so thin, its a breeze to wire up, and takes up very little space.

    Newer plastics on a gen 1 KLR

    Has anyone done any conversions from the get 1 plastics, to the Gen 2 plastics, or anything that made the bike look better.
  12. Well? how'd it go?

    Ktm Conversion exhaust question

    Ive been dealing with the same struggles on my 09 ( basically the same as a 08) Ktm 125 sx, with a 04 Ktm 200 sx engine. i am running the 04 pipe, and using a the 09 125 silencer, and they fit perfectly. Granted they are different engines, and frames, thats my experience with an engine swap, and finding pipes/silencers........
  14. I did when it snowed hard here in Mississippi. The worst 15 minutes of my life, with no studded tires, i was everywhere, couldn't control anything. It was a struggle, and super sketchy. Would i do it again? Hell yes.
