    Fileings in oil

    Hey guys, I bought a 2000 yz426 a couple months ago and have only riden it 3 or 4 times, all short trips say 15 to 20 kilometers each. I decided it was time to change the oil. I pulled the oil filter and noticed small filings in the fins. I washed the filter in clean gas and saw that there was quite a bit of material, i dont have a magnet so i dont know if its steel, and i didnt see any brass. Is it normal to have some filings between oil changes, i know when braking in a new engine you will get some material on the first oil change. This is my first 4 stroke so any info would be appreciated.

    Dripping Oil

    Hey fellas, i picked up a 2000 yz426 a couple months ago and have only riden it 4 or 5 times. Anyways at the end of todays trip after i loaded up i noticed engine oil dripping from one of the tubes on the left side of the bike. Is this normal, i did put the bike on its a couple of time today. Just want to know if this is leading up to something serious or if its normal after putting it on its side. Any info would be appreciated.Thanx

    Was up Greenstone today. Awsome trail conditions and about 50 campers. Think everybody was recovering from last night though because not many people were on the trails. Another good ride unitll it started to rain and things went sideways,literally. . Where was everybody else this weekend.

    We usually park the trucks at the bottom of the duffy lake road by the pond on the left. There are tonnes of trails from that spot. Im going to have to figure out how to get to Ink fromthere. Some of the guys have said that itsa 5 hour ride. Think with the rain this weekend things are going to be very sloppy.

    Bomb Start

    Yes fellas, i guess "Bomb Start" must be a BC slang. I think it comes from when we used to push dead cars down the hills to get them started. they would backfire when you poped the clutch, sounding like a bomb. Great fun untill you hit a corner and the car wasnt fired yet. And yes BC ROCKS. Pull in clutch and decomp, get up a half decent speed, pop clutch and then decomp right after, fired both times for me. Thanx for all the suggestions folks.Going to check the valves ASAP. _________________________________ When in doubt, pin it out. 2000 YZ426

    Bomb Start

    Bomb start is a dead bike that you coast down a hill and pop the clutch to get it running. Sorry about the slang.

    Bomb Start

    I just bought a 2000 yz426. Ive had to bomb start it a couple time because i couldn't get it to fire. Haven't mastered the four stroke starting technique yet. Any ways i heard you guys say that it was very bad to stall your engine using the decomp lever. Is it also bad to use the decomp lever when bomb starting it. It seems to be the only way i could get it to fire. Any feed back would be appreciated. _______________________________ When in doubt, pin it out. 2000 YZ426

    Hey fellas, just went up to Greenstone on thursday night and it was awesome There was only the four of us, tons of trails to ride. Just watch out for the mud holes as they are deeper than they look due to runoff. only crashed once backflip down a steep hill, first bruises of the season Like to thank Robbie if he is reading this, couldnt have gotten going without your help. Let the fun begin.
