  1. Has anyone installed and used a Checkpoint impeller? I see dirt rider had an article about them and I've been curious about them. I've been having overheating problems recently and after spending well over $200 on brand new radiators I've discovered the radiators weren't the problem. So I bought new piston rings since they were out of spec (supposed to be like .15 and they were .5) and then thought about buying one of these aluminum impellers to help the problem instead of keeping the flimsy plastic one. I've read mixed reviews about them. Has anyone had any luck with them or is it basically just paying for the same overheating problems to happen?
  2. I bought this bike 8 months ago and it ran like a champ since I got it. The guy I bought it off of had the bottom end completely rebuild right before I bought it off of him, he had receipts showing the bottom end was only done 2 weeks before I bought the bike. Well I went out riding yesterday and in the middle of hitting a hillclimb it locked up and shut off on me. I was reading that wiseco makes garbage crankshafts but I wasn't sure if it was just because it was a wiseco crank is why it failed or if I was doing something wrong. The synthetic looking stuff they put on the crankshaft melted and seized my connecting rod. It's a 1999 KX250
  3. My question is in regards to my front forks for the second-hand bike I just purchased. I have been looking all over the internet for the last three days to find out a similar issue to mine, so I know where to start. When ever the bike is off the stand there is a excessive amount of slack in the front forks from the point where I pull the handlebars up to fully extend the forks to the point where the settled without out my weight on them. The issue is that there is virtually no tension in the process. The vertical free play/slack is far too much. Low oil, Shock springs worn, a need for spacers? I don't see any signs of leaking on the bushings. Compared to my other bike it is nowhere near the same. Im just wondering where to start and to look to help fix this because I can't find any troubleshooting that relates to this issue or has a term for this excessive vertical free play in the forks . The bike is a 2004 KX100. Any Info would be much appreciated. Thanks
  4. Hello, I am looking for a used 125cc dirt bike. I am puzzeled because I do not know what I want, what would you guys recommend and why would you recommend it. Also where could I get performance mods, specifically suspension and which of the bikes have the most tuning capabilities. I've narrowed my choices down to Kawasaki kx,Honda cbr/xr, Yamaha yz, and Suzuki rm around the 2000-2005 range. I'd rather hear from people who owned one of the bikes but advice from any of the experts is welcome P.S I'm sorry for any mistakes like the wrong "sub forum" or grammar as I'm on mobile
  5. Hey guys new to the forum. Question is my sons riding 2016 kx 65 anyone know where I can buy used or new fox or ohlins rear shock. My suspension guy is telling me they are no longer making them and we would like to at least give some sort of a battle with those ktm's without buying 1 my son has green in his veins.
  6. Looking for some help. I bought this bike blown up, rebuilt and bought new parts and put it all together but used the clutch that came with it. The bike runs really good. I went for the first ride and few days ago after some heat cycles and was just putting around my yard. When I first set off the clutch was working as it should, smooth feel at the lever, no lurching as I put it in gear or anything out of the ordinary. When I stopped and went to set off again tho, the bike tried to jump as I put it in gear and then the grab at the lever was gone. The clutch won't disengage. Has anyone else had a similar issue? I have been reading and many people said this was due to the plates sticking or grooves worn into the basket. When putting mine together I used a diagram and am quite sure it is together as it should be and the basket is not grooved. Could this be due to the oil? I was using 10w40 Castrol, should I try some atf type f? It's like there is suddenly more space between the pressure plate and the plates, I don't get it
  7. So I'm looking for some pivot levers for my clutch and hand brake on my '99 KX 250, I found these ones on amazon that say they will fit an '00 to '04 kx250, do you guys think these would fit my '99? if not do you know any that I can buy online, Im looking for green ones specifically, Thanks. https://www.amazon.com/MZS-2000-2017-2001-2017-2000-2005-2000-2004/dp/B01E6XQDFM/ref=wl_mb_wl_huc_mrai_1_dp
  8. Hey! My name is Kyler. So recently my bike overheated like 3 times, then finally one day it quit on me. After draining the oil, it turns out there's shredded metal everywhere. So I tore it all down. Now I'm not sure whats the problem. So far all that I found is the little rectangular reed valve was missing 1 out of 2 screws, and around that area down there is where I found the most of the shredded metal. also, I'm not sure if its a problem but the actual shaft on the crank has the slightest bit of play. Mainly I just don't know what to replace so please help! I don't want to put it all back together and not replace the main prob. Thanks in advance!
  9. 2008 crf250r, in the process of finishing up a top end rebuild, and after installing the timing chain onto the cam I deciding to hand crank the engine slowly with the kickstart to see if everything was alright. There is a distinct knock that sounds like it is coming from somewhere in the cylinder each time I turn the engine over. What would be causing this sound?
  10. so i can trade my 04 yz250f for a 2002 rm125 i ride mostly all trails. i am tired of my 4 stroke because it's nickle and diming me. i have a few questions about the RM. How is the reliability on 02 rm125/ Your opinions of bike Will the rm125 be easier to maintain than my yz250f? What problems will pop up on this bike or common problems, what should i ask the seller about the bike?
  11. I'm around 5'0 and I ride a ttr-90. Of-course it is wayyy to small for me anymore, and I've been looking at getting a new dirtbike. I was thinking of a kx-65, but I was looking into people saying they out-grow it too quickly. Anyways, I was thinking of a kx-80 too. Which would fit me better?

  16. Recently got back into riding after a 10 year hiatus from it. Found an 07 KX250F for a good price. Been learning to wrench a little bit too so it's been a lot of googling and trial/error. Noticed the bike was backfiring a lot on deceleration. Search results told me it could be the valves (got them checked and adjusted by a local shop) or exhaust leak (DID have an exhaust leak - got it fixed at the same time as the valve adjustment) or too rich/lean air/fuel mixture. Bought one of those handy, flashy thumb adjusters and installed it last night. Noticed that a cable (tube?) may not be run properly and is pushing against it. It's the one in the attached photo with mesh wrap that runs over the carb and back down below it. Would love to know if it's safe to reroute that cable around the backside of the carb and what it is at all. Thanks!
  17. I found this bike that is for sale near me, it's a 2007 KX450F. The seller is asking $800/OBO. The reason he's selling it is because the valves need to be adjusted or replaced and it's a costly fix(He says ~$300 to fix it) and he doesn't want to deal with it. It has a clean and notarized title, but the bike only backfires, it doesn't physically run. From what I've heard from my friends is that it is the valves. But I am worried that when I purchase it, there is going to be something more costly that is wrong with the bike rather than just the valves. I can't see the bike run but if it is only the valves I would buy it in a heartbeat but I don't know for sure because the bike doesn't even run. What are some other major issues that could be wrong? Would you buy this? What are your thoughts? One of my buddies mentioned that it could need a motor rebuild which is pretty expensive. I'd love it if I could get some input from everybody. The bike is very clean looking, plastics are pretty nice and there isn't a lot of cosmetic damage to the bike. I'd really appreciate it. The two pictures that are attached are pictures of the bike. Thanks in advance, I appreciate any help with this.
  18. I just bought a 2008 WR250FX a while back and am getting it street legalized soon. I would really like to paint my rims either black (to go with my blue spoke covers) or blue. I would like to do this at home as I do not have enough money for aftermarket rims. I have looked into powdercoating, anodizing, and dual/single stage automotive paint so far. (Powdercoating looks like it might chip during tire change and there is not a local spot for anodizing and it looks expensive) Does anyone have any suggested methods or ideas for painting them at home? Do not tell me spray paint! Also please do not talk me out of it because I'm hard set on NOT buying new rims! Also we have a very capable, controlled, and large work space so any challenges shouldn't be an issue. Give me your thoughts please! Kind of stuck!
  19. Hello all, its been a while since I posted, felt sort of twitch today, so I thought I would post a visual story of the journey with my KX250f. I purchased this bike off a guy who had NO BUSINESS owning it. Rode it on the street (bald tires), plastics were completely jacked up, seat was barely hanging on. The topper was that it wouldn't start. So...I got the bike for a REALLY good deal. I always wanted a KX, so I had to jump on it. Mechanically, the intake values were WAY off, thus it not starting. While I was tearing into the bike, I went a head and replaced the piston, all seals, etc. The crank and bearings were good. Along with the complete cleaning, I wanted to bike to look amazing when it was done. I always find myself not only reviving a bike from it's bitter end, but I make it look so nice, that I consider never riding it! Yea, I know, I have a problem. None the less, it got a ton of cosmetic upgrades, etc. Thanks for everyone who helped me through the process. Especially, my family and particularly, my son JP who is learning more and more about motocross. I am completely in love with the DCorVisuals Lights Out graphic kit. The matte finish looks so amazing....Thanks Jeff N. for working with me on getting this kit made for my bike. I did the best I could in ordering the pics in the chronological order...the first 2 are showing the bike to me while I was talking with the seller. Cheers!!! If you have any questions, please post them here and I will try to answer them as quickly as I can.
  20. Hey fellas, first post on here. Just picked up a 1996 kx 125 last night, I took it on a trade for something I paid only 125 bucks for. So I couldn't turn it down. It is seized, so it is going to need a bottom end, jug looks to be okay, i mean it had has full fmf exhaust, renthal sprockets that are in great shape, boyeson reeds (unsure of condition of those) and it also came with a quick lift stand, so i didn't think I could go wrong. I have Been researching on this bike for awhile and I cannot find parts for it. Hardly any jugs, cases, and I can even find a new crankshaft, or a big bore kit. They have them for almost every year kx 125 besides the 96 and 01. I guess the biggest thing im wondering if any of these years of kx parts are interchangeable. im planning a total tear down (most of it is already) so I want to replace everything new. And if I cant get a new crank, I would like to purchase a couple to rebuild to have on hand. If someone could shed some light on this or give me any additional information I would really appreciate it!!! Ill be posting pictures and going to try keep everyone updated! I really appreciate you reading this! thank you
  21. So I have a 2013 Yamaha yz450f and I am wondering if I can run 91 octane I live on a farm and we have 91 octane here to get any higher I have to drive 23km one way. It's stock and has 12.5:1 compression

  23. I have a 2006 kx250f starts first kick when cold takes a few kicks when hot but i was out riding with my buddies and i let one of them ride my bike when he went to start it up he kicked it over and was telling me it has very low compression and that it should not be that low, is this normal or a problem im just looking for someone who knows what there talking abouts advice cause if its a problem i wanna fix it to give you an idea how much compression there is you can push down the kick starter with your hand but it still takes effort. pic for attention
  24. Will any newer plastics fit on my 2006 kx250f if so what year and what plastic is it ec front fender pic just cause
  25. Hi all, I have a 2004 kx 250 2 stroke and it wont start. it only backfires. I was out riding it one day and came up to a stop so the bike was just idling and it started to try and die so i revved it up a few times then let it die and now it wont start back up. It only pops or backfires when you kick it. Its getting good spark and i just put a brand new plug and coil in it. I took the reeds apart and they look like they're brand new. It was running great before so i dont know what happened. Im thinking it could be a fuel problem even tho the plug is a little wet if you take it out after a bunch of kicking. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks
