    ttr 125l front fork springs

    Does anyone know of a post that explains how to swap the fork springs for TTR125? I have read quite a bit here about the need to do it, but not much on how to do it. I am just looking for some basic info on changing springs & replacing the fork oil. I have never taken forks apart before and don't know what to expect. Thanks!

    Who's from NorCal?

    towne, I was reading a couple of your previous posts and saw that you were looking for folks to ride with in the area. I live up in Cloverdale and just bought a KLR650 & don't really know anyone else who rides dual. I also ride my other off road bike up at Cow pretty regularly. Let me know if you want to go ride sometime. Dave

    CRF 70 Idle Question

    I just went though the same problem and tried all of the solutions mentioned. I finally adjusted the valves and the bike works amazingly well. Starts and idles perfectly.

    2005 CRF70 auto clutch problem??

    Everyone- Thanks for the help. Between adjusting the clutch, cleaning the pilot jet, and adjusting the valves- it starts first kick and runs perfectly.
  5. I just purchased a used '05 crf70 for my son that had been sitting for a long time. I drained and cleaned the carb and was able to get it started although starting/idling is still difficult. The other thing that stands out is that the bike lurches forward when I put it into gear and then dies. I got it going again today and all in the sudden, it shifted smooth and did not lurch- and would now start and idle well. Later that day, I tried it again and the same problems. Could it be that there is something in the clutch sticking from sitting? Hope this isn't a dumb question- not much experience working on these things. Thanks.
