  1. i start the bike by pulling in the decompression lever slowly push the kick starter down and then back up 2 or 3 times then i let off the decompression lever go to tdc and kick it idk if i am use to 2 strokes but when i give it gas i doesn't really kick hard like on my 125 when you go wide open it throws you back but on this bike it just slowly accelerates idk if its the reckluse auto clutch or something but its not very snappy and when i got on it the other day i stopped and when i went to give it gas the bike grinded really bad every time i tried to move and i haven't been able to start it since
  2. i just got a 1999 wr400 and its unbelievably hard to start even with a decompression lever do the valves or something have to be adjusted? the only way to start it is on the kickstand and if its hot its gameover, any clue of whats wrong or am i a little girl and i dont think thats the issue, my cousin who rides a ktm 525 said its like the same
  3. I just bought a 2004 yz125 and put around 20 hours and i want to go on a ride and will put a decent amount of hours on it. The manual says to change piston rings every three races and my question is how many hours would that be, and what would you recommend i look at before this ride

  5. I dont know if it is water or coolant but i did replace the clutch maybe its getting in through the gasket but i dont see it leaking and i did wash the bike with a power washer then road it in mud snow and water so how would i find out what it is
  6. I have noticed my coolant dropping a little bit after a few hours so do you think its that or water or both
  7. i changed the oil on my 2004 yz125 put new 10W-30 oil in and when i went to top it off after a few hour ride, the oil that came out of the check bolt was gray (has water in it) so i was wondering how would i figure out how its getting in the engine?
  8. i live in lakeville but ride in prior lake i havent raced motocross or endurocross but thats something id like to get into someday
  9. i know friends with dirt bikes and quads but they never want to go riding so im always riding by myself is there a club or something i could sign up to for group off-road rides (i live in minnesota)
  10. when i turn my yz125 off all the gas starts to come out a overflow line so i have to turn the gas off. i dont know exactly what it is but i think its the float or something
  11. i put a new clutch in and everything works right so thank you guys for the help
  12. ok
  13. ok so im not very qualified in working on dirt bikes (im only 15) but compared to doing a top end kit and splitting the cases which is all ive done really. how hard is it to put new friction plates and all that fun stuff in?
  14. i bought a heynes one from motosport. yea its nice to have one totally worth the money
  15. so i rode the bike and put it in 3rd gear and shifted down to 2nd and the rpms didnt rise so i think its slipping for sure
