    yamaha dt125 dirt bike project?

    I saw a motorbike online that I liked the look of...It was a Yamaha DT125 MK2 with racing reeds, handguards, ect (picture below). I am thinking about doing something similar to take around a dirt track. There aren't many, but there are a few cheap DT125's in my area. I am also on a very small budget so this may be an on going project over the next few months or so, depending on how cheap I can get the bike for. The bike will only be used every 2/3 weeks when I take it to a dirt track, so I don't want to do too much to it, or spend too much money any way. What are your thoughts on this project? Do you think I should go ahead and do it? I am roughly 5' 11" but only 110 lbs, so do you think this bike would be too big, or too heavy for me? I just liked the idea of turning a road legal bike in to a trail type bike! Thanks
  3. So i just rebuild my top end of my 2005 250F, i had 35 houres on my piston and cylinder so i decided to rebuild it. it ran perfectly before the rebuild, my timing is right, i have spark, en my sparkplug is a little wet so i have fuel... If i try to kick it it starts to run but after 2seconds it stops running. does anyone know what i have to do? thx Medard from belgium
  4. Hi , I'm new here and I just purchased a spoke tourque wrench kit "Excel (TWS-210ANS) 7-Piece Adjustable Spoke Torque Wrench Set" for my 2008 Yamaha YZF450, the front spokes are smaller than the 6 that came with the bike and the rear spokes are larger than the 7 that came with the bike (I bought it New) Does any one know what sizes the front and rear spoke nipples are? I can still stop my order and seek the correct size somewhere. I find it lame that they gave me the wrong spoke wrench. Thanks in advance, Brent
  5. I got a new to me 2001 yz 250 which has a healthy motor and jetted properly for my elevation. The problem I'm having is when I'm in gear riding and push in the clutch the rpms don't drop to idle but if I give it gas it doesn't slip and revs freely. I can start the bike in gear fine and looked at my clutch already which has plenty of life left and my clutch basket is in good condition to. I adjusted my clutch freeplay which was already in spec. It has aftermarket clutch lever and I maxed it out as far as it can go outwards but the rpms still wont drop to idle when im trying to coast in gear. Another weird thing is if I'm stopped in gear with clutch pulled in it is at idle speed. Any suggestions is appreciated because I don't know what else to check.

    1998/1996 yz250

    Hello I just recently bought my first dirt bike. It's a 1996 yz250 and I'm putting a 1998 yz250 top end on it. The power valve hit the piston and so I am haveing the top rebuilt. And I was wondering what I should grind off the valve? And also what are some other thing I should do to this bike. Thanks!

    2006 yz250 question

    Hi, I just found a great deal for an 06 yz 250 online, and was just wondering, if I'm about 5'10, how would I fit the bike?? I was wondering if I could get two feet on the ground, control it well and stuff like that. Thanks for reading!!
  8. Hey guys, thought i'd share this video i found the other day of this fast rider on a 450. Sounds like he's having the time of his life lol. Check out 2:25 - Insane!!!
  9. A 2003 yz450f or a 2006 rmz 450? And how do the bikes compare in general? Just finished a yz basketcase, now starting on the rmz.
  10. Hi I have a 2016 Yamaha YZ 85 and it seems in lower gears if you give it some gas the throttle seems to stick. Like a cruise control on a car. But the throttle doesn't physically stick. Anyways does anyone know how I can fix this?
  11. I bought a Yamaha Yz125 1996. Didn't start so I turned the Reed valves around and it worked 100%. It was standing for a very long time. Last weekend when I went out with it, it started loosing power and after a while it just stopped starting again. Can this be the reedvales that is old? Btw the idle skrew also came out almost completely when I drove it so maybe that can be a issue. Also when I opened the Reed valves I found very thin metal shavings. What can cause this?
  12. Do an average rider feel any difference riding a 2014 vs 2015 !? is there any big plus buying 2015 or even 2016 model compare to 2014!? I had sold my 2011 yz450f , and tried couple of other manufacture bikes, but at the end i am getting back to YZ . now i need some advice from experts : i have 2 option : either buying a 2014 around 2900SEK(3600$) or a 2015 yz450f for 34000SEK(4200$) . should i go for 2015 or just save money by buying 2014 model !?
  13. I own a 2008 Yz450f and the bike only leaks fuel out of the overflow at the bottom of the carb when the bike is running. I have worked on a lot of bikes and done my fair share of carb work and I can't seem to figure this one out. When the bike sits with the fuel on it never leaks and when I take the bowl off and push the float up and turn the fuel on the needle keeps the fuel back so the needle isn't the problem and the float is not too high or it wold leak when the big is shut off. It didn't leak before and I took the carb apart to do some jet work and it has leaked ever sense.
  14. So we took our friend dirt biking for his first time, he's an excellent street rider, but has never been in the dirt before. He did quite well. Here's a little clip I made to highlight his day, hope you enjoy! Link: Abe's First Enduro Ride

    Yz 125 or yz 250

    Hey sick kunts! I was wondering for any advice on what bike I should get, I'm going to get back into riding. I'm going to purchase a bike of Craigslist, one that is relativly decent. I'm 20 years old and I'm 6,2 190 I was wondering if I should go with a yz 125 or yz 250, I havnt rode since 9th grade when we had to sell my bike before moving to pa but the last bike I rode was a kx85. Thanks
  18. Today I want to shift gears, open the floor for discussion, and talk about the state of dirt biking as it relates to the bikes we buy, ride, and maintain. In my relatively short existence, a number of things have happened in the industry which has been interesting to see. A few examples, which are not by any means exhaustive of all that has gone on, include the emergence of the four-stroke power plant, electronic fuel injection, improved tire technology, electric bikes, and the development of air forks. On a more micro-level we’ve seen improvements to materials, new manufacturing processes, and coating processes which have allowed ever increasing performance. As a fellow rider and someone who has no bias or stake when it comes to manufacturers and product offerings, I’d like to hear your thoughts as they relate to today’s machines. My question to you is a simple one, are your needs as a consumer being met by today’s manufacturers and bikes? What aspects of today’s machines do you love and what are pain points for you? If you could do things your way, what would you change? Are there machine variants that aren’t being offered? Leave a comment below that addresses these questions or share your historical perspective! I look forward to your responses. Thanks and have a great week! - Paul https://www.diymotofix.com/
  19. 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?

    rocker stripped?

    hey guys. got a 04 ttr 225 here and alot of ticking in the head. went to adjust valves and intake checked out ok. exhaust on the other had is messed up. the little adjuster bolt thing with a square head wont thread in the rocker arm any more. it threads so far untill it just starts to stick out the bottom of the rocker then stops like it wont go any farther. almost like stripped or wrong bolt or something. very frustrating. it will run but with the most god awful head noise in the world!
  21. Hi guys, a couple of weeks ago the electric starter on my 05 wr250f quit working after working like a charm for a couple of years without any issues. It still started pretty easy kicking it but I put a brand new battery in it to see if that would fix the electric start but that didn't do the trick. I'm decently handy at working on my bike but i don't want to start playing around with the electric start unit/other electrical components so i decided i want to take it to a shop to get fixed up. While its there I was going to ask them to rebuild the carb since its been sitting for a while and could use a rebuild/re-jetting. Anyways, i want to see if anyone else has had a shop do a carb rebuild and/or fix the electric start on their wr250f, and how much $$$ it cost. I'd like to have an idea of how much it cost for you guys so I can have a good gauge on how the shops will price the job. Any shared experiences will be appreciated!!! Thanks

    2010 YZ450f Setup recommendations

    I am racing the Baja1000 for the first time this year on a team. All of the guys I am racing with have years of experience and have raced on teams and iron manned the race. Most of the guys I will be racing with have KTM or Hondas but I myself have the 2010 Yamaha YZ450F. I am looking for any recommendations on setting the bike for baja. I am an advanced rider, my style is somewhat aggressive, I weigh 180lbs and am 6'1. I am looking to maximize my fuel capacity, connect a light, kickstand, and tires. I am curious about gearing, and mapping for the bike as well as any other ideas you want to throw my way.

    Proper idle

    How do I know my dirtbike is idling at the proper RPMs?
  24. Hey guys, so recently I've noticed that my front pro circuit suspension is stiffer than hell. So I read on it and it said that sometimes it's because the front wheel is misaligned and the forks will not sit right. So I put the bike on a stand bled the suspension and got the axle nut loose and the pinch bolts, and every body said to push the suspension down or even press the brakes a few times to help align the wheel. I made sure to tighten the axle then tightened the pinch bolts. But when I tried to push the suspension down while everything was loose it barely moves at all because it's so stiff. I even tried putting the bike on the stand and turning the clickers counter clockwise to soften them up but they were out of adjustment. What do I Do? How do you guys realign the wheel? I've got a riding trip coming up soon and need as much help as I can get. I'll try to add a link to video I found of a bike doing the same thing.
  25. Hey everyone! I went out to the desert last weekend and decided to record it. We rode mostly tight sand washes. Check it out! PS Turn up the resolution and the cameras were faced too far down but I tried to make it work
