  1. Thanks for the info.
  2. Just brought home a 06' KX100. What I need to know, during the break-in period do I have to change all fluids in the bike? I am talking about draining the coolant, taking off the cylinder head, etc. I can handle the premix-oil, transmission oil and the air filter. This is my first 2 stroke, but I cant wait to see what the bike can do. Just looking for some info. Riding the bike in open fields about 70% and 30% on the track. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  3. All, looking at the KLX110 for adult rider. kids have a crf150/50 and i want something now. looking at something that i can work on and upgrade as well as ride w/ them. i am about 5'9 and 190lbs. will the 110 work? looking for info. thanks
  4. hello all. looking to buy a used 98+ 125 yz. the bike has a new clutch, top end and fork seals. overall the bike looks decent, what things should I be concerned with. i have bought honda in the past (crf50/150 for the kids), but this bike just seemed to fit my budget. i plan to use it for riding w/ the kids. any help would be appreciated.
  5. Well, brought the 150/50 home today. What a beast that 150 is to start. Need some help though. I can get it started (after I tear up my leg) with the full choke on, then I can drop it to half choke. If I try an turn off the choke after about 5min, the bike cuts off. It won't stay on without the choke. Is this just because its a new bike and I have to deal w/ it? I plan on the power up kit down the road, would like to ride stock for a while. Also, any pics/info if the fuel screw or idle screw could be causing this.
  6. i need some help. i pick up my crf-150 on monday. i am planning to atleast put on the skid plate, do the power up (102 main / 45 pilot, i live in petersburg, va), change to a Uni Air filter and then take out the baffle/snorkel. i can't change the pipe right now. what i need to know: 1. am i on the right track 2. should i wait until i get a pipe to do the power up 3. can i do this myself, not a big engine repair type guy. 4. are there any pics and details on how to do all this? any help would be greatly appreciated. i really don't want to mess this bike up on the first day or take it to the dealer. thanks
  7. thanks. this is the info that i was looking for. i am trying to get the service manual so i can do these mods myself.
  8. thanks for the great info. i will do just that, bring it home and enjoy the bike (stock). ill keep reading the post on this site, alot of info. thanks again
  9. all, just joined the site and recently purchased a 05' crf150 for me and my son. was also looking at the ttr125l, but the 150 just seemed better suited for us. i pick it up in about 9 days. my questions are: what basic add-ons should i do. i know that suspension is at the top of the list, but what other things. (muffler, jetting) i would like everything put on before i even bring the bike home. i am still looking on this site for other threads that might have this info. appreciate any help
  10. thanks for all the advice. it looks like i will get the ttr-125L for the son. would the ttr-230 be a good trail bike to ride with him? my ridin time has been on the R-1, but would also like to ride w/ him. i have been told to get the ttr-230 for ease of riding and also maintenance. let me know what you all think. thanks
  11. he is about 5'2, would just adding the bbr springs work? he is new to off-road bikes, i dont want to change the front end w/ the yz yet.
  12. just joined. seems like a great site. i am looking for a bike for my son mainly, although i know that i will ride it. he is 12, about 110 lbs, i am 5'11 about 200. we are looking at the ttr-125L (05',2300 OTD). i cant afford 2 bikes right now. is that a good price for one and how can we make the bike a better ride for us. no tricks/jumping, just some good father/son trail riding. thanks for any help that you all can provide.
