    Made this for my son for Christmas

    Like others have said , great job and time goes fast, my son was too young to dirt with me in the 80;s now we do some road rides together, we get to go through pics and 8mil movies of them sitting on the old bikes,81YZ465,84YZ490, we get along great, enjoy your time cause it goes so fast...

    2 stroke wet clutch sticks every day - plates look ok?

    Use a ziptie or piece of wire to hold lever pulled in when starting first thing so it warms up the oil and lubes up the clutch, hope that helps ya,...been doing that on every bike I ever had and never had a sticking problem, just my 2cts,

    Hot cam stage 1 for xr650l honest opinion

    Nice looking bike you have, what about gearing with your sprockets to give you longer ranges before it runs out of breath,? unless I missed that you already changed them out, Just my 2 cts,

    I got one of those craftsman stands that lifts everything, had for years, works great, and can roll all around on my clean crete floor, also have a holms lock lift for when I trailer somewhere...

    Drowned Ktm exc 200 advice

    From that pic its hard to tell, you could do a comp test and keep track, or if you want you could use a bore scope and go through the plug hole to actually look at it , but most scopes are bigger than the plug hole..at least the ones ive seen for cars and trks... if your comp test shows close to normal, keep a clean air filter in her and ride on...

    Drowned Ktm exc 200 advice

    You did the correct thing as to empty all water out of exhaust ,air filter, after home, clean air filter or replace, also change oil after a hot long ride, keep an eye on gearbox oil and replace if gets cloudy again, I had a 84 yz490 that got dropped when I got on slick rocks coming out of a creek bed, and she went totally under, I did all the same as you and cleaned air filter and box after the ride and did 2 gearbox changes and never had any problems, i enjoyed the ride,...and the garage time later,.....

    How does this MRD exhaust packing look?

    I repack mine every winter, roughly 1000-1500 miles, the packing burns up or gets used where the pipe enters the can the most, I pull the end cap and pack from there with a 1/2 dr extention, tightly around the core. reinstall cap and good to go....

  15. Back in the day when I assembled the top end of my yz490, I would wipe the barrel with rag with 2 cyl oil on and piston outside would be dry, always lube the bearings, never had any trouble with ring seating , bores lasted also, just my 2cts,
