  1. Much thanks Thumper talk Brethren.
  2. Hello all, been a while since I have logged in. I have a 04 CRF 450 that needs the head redone. Just looking for contacts or websites. Kinda Yelp for Thumpers.
  3. Thanks for your reply Shawn, I cant be certain about the float stopping the fuel. Certainly the first time the float was off due to the flooding. After taping the bowl the fuel flow slowed down, I cant say that it is completely gone. Yes the bike finally lit but it was bogging seriously in the middle. Spring preload? On the triangular jet? The one that closes the fuel off? The spring preload on the cable pulley is tight. One suggestion from a friend was the O ring under/rather above the float. Under the brass holder. I can not see how to get that brass holder out, the manual shows a screw holding it in. On my model there is no screw. The manual is for 02-03 mine is an 04. Will get the carb in front of me again and review all the potentials. Will report on what I did wrong, and what solved the problem. Never realized what temperamental things these carburetors are? I have never really had any problems previously.
  4. No on both accounts. Needle was removed from the slide but never changed the circlip position. Plate on the slide was installed as per the manual. Checked that twice. Thanks for your suggestions and help.
  5. I searched the forum but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for so I apologize if this is common knowledge. Over the holiday I tore apart my 04's Carb. Clean work table so I am fairly sure all the parts got back to where they belong. Also there was nothing left behind. After cleaning - I pulled every part out I could and cleaned it, reassembled when I turned the petcock on, the carb flooded. Starting was near impossible but it finally lit. It was crisp on the bottom and top, bogged seriously in the middle. From what I can gather it flooded and died. Well it died I hope it was due to flooding. I pulled the carb out again disassembled and reinspected. All looked good, installed and fired. Same problem. Float appears to be installed correctly. Float needle looks good, nice taper no wear. O rings are in the accelerator pump - appear correct. I am checking this with the shop manual and user manual. My spidey sense has me wondering about the Throttle Position Sensor. When I pulled the slide out, I also removed the cable pulley. Could installing it incorrectly cause flooding, or a bog in the middle? Hot Start - the plastic nut is all stripped, I am not 100% on a seal but it seems to be sealing - new nut is in the mail on the way to me. While cleaning the bike, I did add a vent tube to the gas cap, I replaced the old tube to make sure that wasnt the issue. Anyone else had this issue? The carb was working fine, just gummed up, the reason why I cleaned it. Now everything has gone out the window. Any help, suggestions or ideas are appreciated. Thanks Thumpertalk
  6. Pro Clean makes a bike cleaner - same thing as S100/Hondabrite just not as painful on your skin. $19 a gallon. Mean Green is the same as S100/Hondabrite green in color. 2.99 for a big ass bottle.

    advanced flow testing fixture

    April 2008 I had sent my head to Mr. Hamp 'knock on wood' I have had zero issues with his work since that time. I asked him to build me a head for my CRF which I could flog, Trail and WORCS, GP. He did exactly that. When I get a new CRF, he will be top of mind for needs of performance and reliability. What I am getting at, this guy is not just a craftsman, he is an excellent craftsman. Props are due.

    Quick Question Regarding Triple Clamps

    Second question: I have an 04 and wanted the 22mm offset but shopping for a deal i.e. used. I know the 09 is 24mm did they change in other years? What is the 04 offset?
  9. The Z Start does. But it adds a nice feel. I race MX and WORCS and like the others said, it is like cheating. Immediately I shed about five seconds off a lap. My bike is more set up for cross country then MX, I passed people on the inside of turns and pulled away and in mired mud holes that everyone was pushing out on. The ultimate point and shoot. I will never acknowledge I run that clutch on the line, no way do I want the competition getting wise to my tips. The new clutch looks interesting. Perhaps for my next bike. Why it took me so long to get one I have no idea. If you add any of their products you will be very pleased. The support is Excellent.
  10. Stewart - SX only? I am not sure to believe or not. Sounds logical though if he wants to go to NASCAR.

    The place looks cool, but it is in the middle of a windy area
  13. They have helped me. They take a bit of adjusting from stock. In other words your settings will adjust for the collars. But I am a large guy and they did help me run a more plush set up without bottoming. Hope that helps
