    Quick Idle Question!!

    Hey if some one can help me quickly that'd be awesome my brothers 2000 CR250 is idling waaaay to high, its screaming when the bike is kicked over... now the only thing he has done since last year was clean the carb and put new hoses on it, he said the throttle slide is closed all the way except for maybe eighth of an inch... so i dont think its the carb, where could an air leak occur over the winter? thanks

    did a top end inspection.. *updated with pics!*

    i dont think its possible as the piston slides easily into cylinder when installed correctly you would notice an incorrectly installed ring pretty quick as the cylinder would not fit over it however IF there ever was an instance where someone has somehow installed them wrong, chances are one would have caught a port by now (given you have had your bike running) as rings tend to spin during operation (not on our 2 strokes as thats what the little pins are for) basically i think its pretty hard to screw it up

    Pulsating idle

    my bike does the same fine on start up but when its warm its pulsating and im thinking reeds... i have 2 hours on a complete top and bottom rebuild and it does it no way my crank seals are bad unless the shop installed them incorrectly, cant be jetting as i have been running stock with no problems before the rebuild.... if i can figure it out ill let ya know

    TPS cover on carb

    alright sounds good thanks for replies sounds easy enough (i guess yamaha just doesnt want to be held responsible if you mess up the sensor).... and natosuperman, this bath will not be with candles and scented oils LOL

    TPS cover on carb

    would it be alright to take off the tps sensor on my carb despite what yamaha's manual says? id like to put my carb into an ultrasonic bath but the tps is stopping me, can i do the bath with or without the tps? thnks

    B8ES plug for 2005 yz250???

    i had resistor type but wrong tip, i was running an EG not an ES... which believe it or not can make a difference, the wrong tip can maybe run hotter causing abnormal combustion

    Carb Floats

    took my carb apart this week (03' YZ250) at school to clean it up and inspect everything and one thing i have been puzzled on is the float lvl... according to the manual im to flip the carb upside down and measure with vernier calipers the lvl to be around 5.5-7.5mm well before i touched anything i measured and mine is well below that (3.5mm) but when i bend the tab on the floats they dont like to really move sufficiently, though when i do manage to adjust the floats to desired level, the inlet needle is completely shut (which it should be upside down) however when i flip the carb upright the inlet needle is still basically shut with floats completely dropped im at a loss.... do i need a new inlet needle? or was i fine with my original setting o and p.s the bike was acting up at the end of last season

    did a top end inspection.. *updated with pics!*

    looking at the first picture of your piston i think you are running lean somewhat... i had my piston in this week at my college and one of my teachers had said if there is sorta sand paper looking marks on the edge exhaust side on the top of piston thats what its from other than that i think it looks pretty good

    00' case same as 03'?

    im actually currently enrolled in a mechanics school for motorcylces and powersports and was told you infact cannot interchange cases from different bikes as cases are prefectly molded with one another even if it looks lined up with a different one it will be off even a thousandth of an inch and could cause a fail So IMO i would not interchange cases
