  1. Yeah So I have a lectron Carb on my WR144 all you have is a slide and a screw to mess with the "jetting" hence why I say it's like Fuel Injection on a Two stroke. Plus Lectron if you order from them will actually set the Carb up for you before they ship it to you. Just watch out they are a bit pricey but 100% worth the money. But for the stock carb you may have gotten water in there if you pressure wash your bike, So I'm agree with Turbo Dan, that it might be a problem but not very likely. I'd suggest you pull the jets and put them in a bowel of vinegar to clear out any potential clogging or water build up.
  2. I'll probably just get too frustrated and bring it to a shop At the time I think my dad was ready to throw it in a lake lol. But I put a 290 kit into it and the 03 Cam Shaft in it and it changed it 100%. Now I broke the carb and can't keep fuel in it lol. So I'm sorry I don't know where that spreadsheet is, but hopefully you can kill that bog.
  3. I'm just confused to why it just recently started doing this, my pilot is a 40 and stock is 35 i think. Maybe I need to get a smaller pilot to start? I know there is a Jetting Spreadsheet somewhere on Thumper Talk, I can't remember where though so I will apologize for that, but sometimes bikes are finicky, my 2001 WR250f was a beast to jet, we would have to reset the bike mid ride and we didn't change elevation just changed temperature. So I know how frustrating it is.
  4. Sounds like you are running fat, check and make sure you are running the right jets from the Pilot to your main. If that doesn't help you may want to look into either a JD Jetting kit, or maybe a Lectron Carb. But I'm pretty sure your jets are not what they should be.
  5. Hey man, sounds like you need to take her to the frame and touch ever single bolt. I have a 2012 Husqvarna WR144, a 1996 CR250 and a 2016 YZ250x, (this is only my two strokes I do own 2 four strokes) and if what you are saying is true that the previous owner did about as much maintenance as the government does to curb spending, then you need to do a complete tear down inspect every part/clean every part and see what's going on. I have a feeling something else is starting to go if you are having these problems as my Two Strokes even my 96 is easier to work on and significantly cheaper than my four strokes. Oh and for the jetting problem look at a Lectron Carb, they are a bit pricey but I run one on my WR144 and it's fuel injection for Two Strokes. I'm looking at picking one up for my YZ here pretty soon because I hate jetting and being in Salt Lake City out Elevation changes while on the ride and sometimes causes issues.

    I’d also suggest buying a Lectron Carb, I’m gonna do that myself when I get some extra $$. Simplifies everything.
  7. utah

    What kind of carb work? If needed I'm sure I can help walk you through fixing it. They aren't that bad once you've done it once or twice, Just a giant Pain in the butt.
  8. So a bunch of liberals are still whining over the land being returned to Utah, you know so Utah can decide what to do with our lands. Guess they got really mad when someone outside of the Divider In chief (Obama) started abusing his powers and ripping lands and forcing Refugees onto his political opponents. Yet when the President Returns the lands to the people who requested it be returned liberals freak out because how dare he give the power back to the people! Also pretty tired of non Utah Residents who don't know anything about Utah commenting on this. Y'all ain't a part of Utah you know the state that the feds own 80% of. Would suck if the feds were to own 80% of your state. You know it also had me thinking, why is it the Democrats want statues of Confederate Generals removed and monuments to the Confederate soldiers (You know the ones that were made US Veterans in the 50's) because "they were conquered" yet we have conquered the Native Tribes here in the US and yet we give them land to rule as their own and now they want to expand their power. So in honesty what are limits of destroying history do we go to? DO we honor a bunch of people we beat not he battlefield and take away all their monuments or do we preserve our history? Either way gonna duo my best to stop these liberals trying to dictate their own beliefs that no one in Utah follows.
  9. That's why I use a 30.06, Mine has killed Commies in Korea .
  10. Depending on the Year of the YZ Yamaha did change some things on the CDI in 2007 I think it was, and the X CDI maybe a little more robust but my understanding is that it is a YZ with very minor changes to the motor. You are also more use to a 300 which has a way different motor characteristics, modding a two stroke for enduro is much easier and cheaper than with the four stroke. But with the changing the two smoke to the trails, well yeah with a light flywheel you wouldn't have the torque needed but works great on the track, it's just like modding any four stroke, so I agree a fly wheel weight and then the throttle gotta be able to manage the power. As I've said before I'm not slamming the four stroke, love them I just prefer the two stroke and with a 125 the power isn't overly aggressive but you gotta ride it as such. But I agree I have never bent a valve on my two stroke or had to replace a cam chain though I have had to replace gas a lot. Which sucks, way too much riding will burn through that stuff didn't think that was possible lol. But I really want to try a Beta 300 I almost bought that bike but I don't have that kind of coin to drop, the KTM no thanks, suspension sucks and people gush over them like glocks and turns me away.
  11. I have the 2016 YZ250x, while yes they did change the transmission to a wide ratio which lengthened some gears the the power delivery is roughly the same. The YZ and YZx are virtually the same bike motor wise. All you do to change some of the power characteristics is throw in a heavier flywheel weight I put into mine a 8.4 OZ GTYR and then I change my throttle to the G2 throttle with a Mud cam. So I'm running the same motor Chad Reed used to win the Supercross on his last 2 stroke win, it's just with those changes it takes it from being a monster that can jump a triple coming out of the corner and making it smooth out the throttle, the motors aren't softened as you say, it's that the power delivery is changed, with throttle and usually displacement. The best offroad two stroke is a 300 cc as it has good amount of low end and still has the weight advantages. You also are looking at the different power deliveries of the four stroke compared to the two stroke, I own two 2001 WR250f's yes they were the original four stroke enduro bikes. The power delivery is far different as it has that low end torque but is heavy as shit, even my buddy's 2015 WR250f is heavy compared to my two stroke and to me bounces around more than my YZX. Now I do run my husky WR144 off road and only time I have issues with the power delivery is when I have a short run at a hill, the 125 doesn't have that low end meat, that is really nice for offroad use, and other than a 144 kit you wont get it. What you lack in low end torque you make up for in handling and most the time costs and maintenance time. With every bike you have pro's and Cons. I enjoy both bikes don't get me wrong, nothing wrong with four strokes or two strokes. I'm finding myself to prefer the two stroke because the parts are cheaper and they are easier to work on.
  12. Outgrow the power? Um what? a 125 has plenty of power and me being 5'9 220 Lbs (Post deployment I found McDonalds and it was a great love affair) I have a 2012 Husky WR144 amongst many other bikes, which has a little more low end but basically the same and I have not "grown out" of that power. 125 will last you for many years, even putting in a 144 kit will extend the life of the bike making it a good investment. Also the YZ you can still get parts very easily, Since you are saying you want it for trails well there you'll have to spend some money unless you get a specific bike like my WR144 for the trails. A MX four stroke is just as crappy as a MX Two stroke off road, as they have different valving for the suspension and the power delivery is different. You would spend roughly the same amount to change a MX anything to a trail machine then to start off with a trial machine.
  13. I'm running the G2 Throttle with the Mud Cam, and the GTYR 8.4 Oz Flywheel. Love them, really changed her gave her the down low grunt she needed but also made her easier to control. I installed my Flywheel weight with the Tusk puller not issues, took about 30 or 45 mins because i was watching a video how to do it.
  14. Those look like the tire spacers..
  15. Dude tell you what, if you need a place to turn wrenches give me a buzz. I am not saying I am a top of the line garage but you know I got a work space to turn the wrenches and I take my oil up to Jiffy lube for disposal anyways they don't charge anything to do it. Which reminds me I need to drop the 6 gallons of used oil off.
