    Piston carnage

    It’s magic! That top ring disappeared. Also, you can see that metal got on top of the piston and danced a bit. Head work as well as cylinder plating and new/rebuilt top and bottom end.
  2. I’ve been using Mobil1 in my Harley’s, in both cars and my dirt bikes for a long time. I’m very happy with Mobile 1.
  3. Screw this thread. I’m going back to the weird, strange and funny things you’ve found while trail riding thread!! im outta here...

    1979 KDX 400

    What I like is the Yamaha dirt bike with the factory “luggage rack” has been turned into another seat for the passenger!!! The Kawi is a decent find. Some parts might be hard to find though. You have to love the shape of the 400’s seat though! Didn’t they up the displacement just after ‘79 to something like a 420??

    97 kx 250 2 stroke

    But isn’t part of the ring missing? What about the area on the center of the piston that either looks like ore-ignition it a piece of the ring got up in there and danced for a while? The front of the piston at the top is melted off and rounded the edge and that’s where the missing piece is. Maybe my old eyes are failing me too.
  6. The distance from the tongue to the axle is sooo short that I wonder if it would “wag” while running down the road. If it’s not too late, I would pass. As mentioned before, I would find a flat bed that can handle various duties.

    Lost a part and wondering what it's called?

    It’s the screw encompassed in the #5circle.

    RM125 mark on cylinder

    Maybe the previous owners initials? Marking “his” cylinder to make sure he got the correct one back after re-plating.

    RM 85. Still bringing it back to its former glory. Decal kit has to go for something else. Getting ready to get swingarm and linkage redone.

    Well, found out the m/c shop isn't fond of swapping my stock spring for a BBR spring. I don't have a spring compressor nor do I and truthfully I don't know how anyways. I did bust out the 110 and street road it to get some break in time on it before work today. Fun stuff. The 70, found a new home too! Shock scenario is on hold for the immediate future.

    Thanks GBR. I need to get a new rear shock sooner or later and am going to have to get some feedback from fellow members in which one. I'm not ready to plop down $400.00~ on a Fox Float at least not at this time. I'll be reading posts about recommendations. Thanks.

    ... got my new '14 CRF 110. It's parked next to my '11 CRF 70. The 70 is the third one that I've owned and also had a couple of Chinese pits too in the past. This 110 is so much stronger than any of the Honda 70's that I've owned that I believe the 2011 will now have to find a new home as it feels really sloooooow!!! I've only test ridden a couple of laps at the dealership that I bought it from and brought it home and parked the new one. I'm moving right now and playing is not on the list as of yet. Anyways, hopefully here is a pic of them.

    CRF70 Oil Fouling Plugs

    It really sounds yo me like the valves are too tight. Intake is not closing all the way and might be causing that "wet" look.

    Thanks for the reference Much longer break in than I expected! I will listen for it to start clicking. Thanks again.
