  1. My father and I purchased the 225 from our family friend. He thought it was just a carb issue but when my friend and I cleaned it and adjusted the Float. Still it would turnover run for a second then die. When bump starting it much of the same. We have tried testing spark, Air, Fuel, Compression. But it still won't idle and tips or ideas.
  2. Hello I bought my first dirtbike two months ago with no isssues but a clutch that wouldn’t disengage and a new Input shaft bearing. Being the over achiever I am I split the case replaces that got a new to me input and output shaft because one of the gear races was destroyed and I got them for 45$ ?. Anyway I replaced a bunch of other stuff broke some bolts ordered a new clutch pressure plate and reassembled the motor. Took it out for a spin and after about an hour oil was coming out of the clutch lever arm like crazy so I decided to split it and replace all the seals. After this I went to put the motor together and the transmission would completely lock. Took it apart did it again still locks, about 15 times later I decide to built an engine case holder out of 2x4 to keep the shafts from moving and after 5 times of trying that the input shaft locks and the output spins. I’m assembling it in neutral and I put grease in all the bearings and guide holes for the shift fork arms and they’re all going in they’re proper spots.. I’ve pretty much given up after 5 days of this and I’m about to take it to a shop but I want to say I built it by myself not took it to a shop who does that ?. Anyone have any experience with this or any ideas? Any help would be appreciated
  3. Whilst out on track yesterday in the first session my sons bike kept cutting out and stalling. The track conditions where wet and muddy, we were the first out on track and it was thick! By the time i noticed him sat track side looking sorry and i got to him he had drained the battery trying to get it started, so after getting the bike back to the van and leaving it for 30 minutes and finding a jump start pack to get it going this is what we found. These statements best describe how it ran sat on the stand. losing power on full throttle. spluttering and cutting out. cant hard rev, cuts out. poor idle cutting out and lumpy runs ok on light throttle, cuts out on hard throttle. Now, i know very little when it comes to 4 stroke bikes and a little bit more on 2 strokes but i do have the internet to help. So what could it be and where should i be looking first. I`m looking towards a clogged injector maybe? blocked fuel screen/filter? knackered fuel pump? am I on the right track here and what other suggestions can you guys offer? Cheers Tom.
  4. Hello all! thanks for the awesome recurse that this site is and all of the help this place already has been before this...my first post! So, I am as the title states, rebuilding the lower end of my 2008 xr650l. Now that I have installed the 2nd and 5th gear mod as well as replaced another worn gear, and center shift fork I now have the shift drum installed and am beginning to wonder if there is indeed a way to install that(shift drum) backwards? I have tested and all seems to shift smoothly through the gear, however it would seem to me that if i were on the bike I would be pushing the pedal down to shift through the top four gears. Is this possible, or am I just second guessing myself? THanks for the help!! -Jdoo
  5. I’ve had my 2007 rmz 250 literally forever and although she might not be the best bike she gets the job for the weekend, recently my cam chain broke inside of my engine, after taking the engine apart I noticed everything was fine except for the guides and the cam chain guide holder on the left. My buddy says to just jb weld it and call it a day but I don’t wanna do that. If I buy a Used but good condition left case for the engine what are the chances it will work without having to buy a full case?
  6. I've found a stator kit for a ktm exc 530 at a cheaper price but I'm worried about the dimensions if it would fit It's Dimensions : Interior diameter : 28.7mm / 1.12 inches Exterior diameter : 83.8mm / 3.30 inches Pole's Thickness : 28.3mm / 1.11 inches Pole's Width : 21.5mm / 0.84 inches To those who own 505s any suggestions or comments? Maybe you have anything to say?
  7. I just put a rekluse in and changed the engine oil and rode it around last night. I get up this morning too it off with gas and it won’t start! It ran perfect last night, and now all of a sudden it won’t start. I can tell it’s trying to because when I hold the kill switch it just dies instantly but without it it bumps a little like it wants to start. Could someone please help me out.
  8. hey i have a 1993 xr100 that I did all the work on I bought it and it was smoking bad so i did a big bore top end rode it for about a year, then ran into problems with the timing chain so i took it apart installed a new timing chain all the tensions, cleaned up the valves, inspected the top end, put a stage one cam in it, ive been ripping it for like two months, it only ever burned oil on startup for 5 mins then cleared up all the way, today i was riding home from a ride at the pit, i stopped and was idling for a second when it started bogging and burning oil oil pretty bad all of a sudden. what could have gone wrong to cause this sudden problem, ring? valves? also its been doing this but the crank case vent hose blows air, does this mean i have blow by somewhere? thanks in advance for any input.
  9. Got this 2007 ktm 250 sxf years ago used from a guy who use to race. Only road it a handful of times before it sat in my garage for about 5 years. Now that I’m getting back into the sport I noticed the welding Bead. Could this be the reason I’m having trouble starting the bike??Already cleaned air filter, carburetor, spark plug, etc. I’m new so don’t rag on me lol.
  10. So I've recently found out my stator went out on my 2002 kx 250 my problem is I cant find a replacement part is there any solutions to replacing it? Decent aftermarket? re wrapping? Or just try to ebay a used one? What's worked for others and if there is options available so I dont have to put my bike out to pasture
  11. Hello so I have a 2005 CRF250R. After a long ride on Thanksgiving I decided it was time to clean the air filter. After I cleaned it and re-oiled the filter I realized that the air boot area where the filter sit in was kinda dirty with dirt that felt oily to the touch. I got some water and a brush cleaned what I could out of it (could not get all of it that stuff was stuck on there). After that I reinstalled the air filter and put the seat on. The bike sat like that for about 3-4 days. Now today I just tried starting it up it was a total fail. I spent 30 mins trying to get it to run, when finally I bump started it enough times on a hill in first gear near my house with the choke on. The idle did not sound right. Usually with the choke on the bike sounds like it revs high. All I got was a weak idle with a little bit of power to carry me back up the hill to my house in 1st. As soon as I gave the bike throttle IT DIES and as soon as I take off the idle it dies!! Happens every time. The only thing I can think was did water get deep to the carburetor or in the engine, if so what do I do? I mean it runs but very poorly if that is a good sign. I recently took the carburetor apart because the bike was not running and there was a plugged jet but the carburetor has been cleaned literally 1 week ago. AND YES THE GAS PETCOCK WAS ON! Please any advice would be helpful I'm about ready to sell the bike and get a Yamaha😅
  12. Hey guys, I own a 2015 CRF250R, the front end is very shaky, over bumps i get like speed wobbles shaking from left to right very fast, it's really scary and i feel like it is definitely getting in my way of progressing. i'm guessing there would be too much PSI in the fork? or something with comp and rebound, i am around 76kgs and 6ft if that helps anyone. Since we bought the bike, on the rear shock, the free sag when no rider is sitting on it drops about 100mm, i think the whole front and rear suspension needs to be looked at set up wise. sorry for the long-ish post, but its super annoying as it makes me not really enjoy riding (which is scary as ive been riding since i was 2), thanks in advance to everyone who helps and replies!
