    I dont think it was to lean the plug was burning a nice light tan color I will check the piston I didnt drill any holes in it so that might be it and yes it was Wiseco thanks alot for the replies I will check it out.

    97 CR 125 rebuild trashed

    I am helping a friend of my sons who I helped have a top end rebuilt and after about 10 hours of riding it wasted the rebuild. When I did the rebuild I checked the tolerances on the rod and crank and had the cylinder bored with new piston and rings. When it quit running I tore down and it really scored the front of the cylinder and piston. I'm more familar with 4 strokes not 2 strokes anybody have suggestions of why it might have went so quickly.

    RE: Engine Ice VS Liquid Ice

    Clark quick question do you think a higher boiling point is really a good thing I have been looking at different products for better cooling, but I have concerns about raising the boiling point because hot is hot and it would be the same stress on the engine. I am beginning to think aftermarket radiators may be the best option and do we really gain any benefit from additives, has anybody done any testing to see if they are a benefit.

    When are the spring dual sport rides?

    If you're an AMA member its usually in the back of the magazine. I also think you can go to AMA website. That would be only for AMA sanctioned events.

    When??????????

    I talked to one of the rangers last year and he had said it was going to change for the extension of 33 but he said it wouldnt be for a couple years, Purdum loops was one of my favorite areas

    Synthetics

    For the past year I have been running an oil called Royal Purple Max-Cycle. The results have been amazing with operating temperture of the bike in tight single track. I dont know if the effects on the wear of the engine is any better than the oil I ran before, but reduced temperature would point toward less friction. Just my 2 cents

    Left Side Crank Case Question

    Thanks Birdy 426 for the info
  10. I was checking my valves on a 2000 WR400 when I was removing the plugs to set TDC quite a bit of oil came out of the center plug is this normal I dont remember it happening last spring when I checked my valves I wasnt even sure if their was oil in the left side case. Older bikes I had previously owned were dry on the left side case. Any help would be appreciated thanks

    '00 WR400 Overheating/Lack of power

    I had a similar problem just recently and it about drove me nuts and I was really beginning to question my ability to work on my own bike but I was able to find the problem when I had tore the carb apart to check what jetting was in the carb and to clean up the carb after it had set for a while I put the carb slide plate in upside down put it in right the bike ran like beforemy mistake for not paying attention putting it back together.
