    Reed Cage Installation

    I put new reeds on a 1980 DT175 and noticed that the cage is not uniform. See the small part protruding from the right side? Does it matter which way it goes on? Picture attached.

    I need to run premix in a 1980 DT175 while I check the function of the oil injection. What is the correct ratio?

    Old Carb Fit

    Will a carb from a 1980 DT100 fit a 1980 DT175? I am rebuilding a DT175 and found a DT100 carb for the same year at a salvage yard.

    1981 DT175 kickstarter does not return once kicked. I have the spring it right and it works fine with the case cover off. Once I put the case cover back on it stops springing back. Anyone dealt with this before?
  5. I have a 1981 DT175 that I am trying to get running. I keep having to take off the crank case cover and it is murder on the screws which appear to have been replaced already. Any recommendations on where to get Allex / Hex screws that will fit? Also, what type of material should they be?

    DT175 Headlight

    The OEM headlight lens assembly 2A6-84120-60-00 is discontinued. Can anyone recommend a replacement? I was surprised you could not just change a bulb. I can find the lens assembly on ebay but for $135!!!!

    Oil Pump Drive Sprocket

    On a 1980 DT175, should there be a washer on the end of the oil pump drive sprocket where it meets the case cover or does it just sit right in the case cover?

    Tachometer DT175

    I am putting a rebuilt DT175 back together and wanted to know how to reattach the tachometer. It looks like I just stick it in by the oil pump and fasten it. Anything else?

    Valve Adjustment Tool

    I need to buy a valve adjustment tool for an 81 XT250. Anyone know what size?
  13. I just got a hitch carrier for my sons new Kaw KLX 110. We are going to be traveling through heavy storms. Should the bike be covered to protect from rain and road grease? I figured it would not matter on a dirt bike but thought to ask if anyone has an opinion.

    Oil Line Case Connections - 1980 DT175

    Thanks! So how do I get them off and put them back on? Can I just wiggle with pliers and them shove them back in. Or is there a more involved removal method. Do I need a press to reinstall? Also, what does S.O.A.N.Z. stand for?
  15. Pic attached. I replaced the lines to the oiler but would like to replace the lines from the elbows that connect to the case to the oiler itself. I would likely need to remove these elbows. Am I able to remove them? Are they just pressure fit? If so, how should I do it? If I may damage them or the case, I will just leave it alone. Want to be thorough but they seems clear now.
