    Possible Missing Screw?

    I saw that on my buddies new wr450 and thought the same thing. hahaha.
  2. Guess what it was the silencer. I repacked it and cleaned what I could see when the bike got a top end. I unriveted the spark arrestor and cleanded it spot less also the mid pipe was so clogged. Now it runs like a beast.
  3. No it is one of the first thing I replaced. A buddy who owns a shop just mentioned a little late. That on his cr500 the turbine core in the spark arresstor got clogged and caused a similar problem. So that is where I go next.
  4. Have any of you guys had your 99 carb go bad. I ask all these things because my yz is running stupid. About 2 months ago I went Riding at Gorman. It was a cold wet day so I thought the bike was just running rich because I didn't change the jetting for the alltitude. So after changing some jets and messing with the air scew I was able to at least ride it. So I get home dismantle the carb clean everything the silencer was repacked clean air filter and so on. Rode gorman the next weekend same thing. So the bike hasn't had a top end since I bought it so I figured I would do the top end. Mind you the bike was running fine first kicker everything. The piston was good cylinder was good reeds looked like they needed to be replaces one side was warpped So new parts Top end OEM V-force reeds New filter new kill switch Different coil Thought that might be the problem Rejet back to pro circuts reccomendations. And then a ton of other parts not related to the motor. Its not sucking tranny fluid The power valve is functioning It revs to the moon not under load But under load at about half to full throttle it bogs. Not enough fouling to kill the bike but it totally kills the power say if i am in 5th gear pinned I can't go faster then maybe 45mph and that is with a 50 tooth rear sprocket. I have a new kehin carb 39mm is what they reccomended coming from sudco that should be in on monday it dosent have the little solenid to lean the mixture at top end but I don't think that will be an issue. Considering most guys disconnect it that I have takled to and this year dosent have TPS either. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Opinions about SDG seats?

    I just put an SDG on my 99 and have no problems what so ever Standard seat great price the only thing I did was use my factory brackets instead of the ones that came with it.

    You guys just answered all the questions I was going to ask except were all the bikes with tranny falures early 05's or across the board?

    Arsenic in mine tailings............

    That is one of my favorite riding areas. If thay close it to off roading it will be a great loss and really pi$$ me off. I am tired of everyone trying to protect the innocent breathing dust of any kind is a potential cancer risk. Stop the madness.

    Sunland track appoved!!!!

    It has been a long time coming. I wrote a letter I want to say about 2 years ago. The only problem I see potentally with the track is it will be insanely crowded. So close to the city. But still a grand victory.

    Dirtbike Riding and Crashing...

    Sounds like you are riding a little over your head. Slow down and get some saddle time in before you try to keep up with your buddies. Make them wait for you.
