  1. So I bought a ssr 125 very fresh hardly riddin bike and I went and changed the oil I put what the book said 10w 40 regular car oil and after about a 30 mile ride I was looking thru the book and see. That it needed 10w 40 4 stroke motorcycle oil so I changed it the next day do you think I hurt the bike at all ??
  2. Just got a 08crf250r rode it and if u twist the throttle really fast it bogs and it backfires/pops when going down hills also it takes 4 to 5 kicks woth choke on to start. Dos it sound like carb problem or valves need adjusted. Anything would help thanks
  3. Hi! I am wondering if a 2 stroke would suit my type of riding best. I do trail riding, but not stuff that's really intense. I am 5'5 or 5'6. I currently have a KLX125 and I like it, but need more power! I am thinking a KDX200 would be the perfect two stroke, if I were tall enough. Same goes with the XR250r. Any suggestions would be great!
  4. Hello all, I know this is a highly debated topic and one that has probably been discussed at great length. I apologize in advance for opening up this can of worms. Unfortunately, when I have done searches both on this forum and google, virtually all the threads I have read are old (2004-2010, maybe 1 thread from 2011'). I have not seen anything (2013-2017) regarding this topic. I think with progression of engineering that reliability on both 2 strokes and 4 strokes on 2014 + bikes is vastly superior of that of 2004-2010 bikes. (maybe I am wrong....) My background: I had a Yamaha RT 100 and TTR 125L back in the day (my only dirt experience). Then ended up with a GSXR 750 after college, then a KTM 690 SMC supermoto, CBR 600 track bike, and then a Husqvarna 701 Supermoto. So I am not new to motorcycles but my knowledge of dirtbikes and dirt riding is pretty limited. Obviously coming from a street bike the maintenance and service intervals are substantially different than a dirtbike. Hell, even my track bike does not require all that much maintenance and I ride the crap out of that (change oil every few track days). I want to get a dirtbike that I can go ride some trails (I will probably just putt around) and occasional try and ride a MX track (I imagine I would be very slow. I road a MX track back with my TTR 125L but that sucked because it had no suspension- amongst other things). So while I do not need race bike power, I would like suspension capable of hitting some MX jumps. Hence why I do not want a trail bike like a TTR 230 or CRF 230. I want something that would be able to actually take some jumps if I get to that point (I at least want to try and progress to that point). My question is: Would a 2 stroke (no older than 2007') be easier/cheaper to maintain than a modern day 4 stroke (2012' +). I have read 2 strokes need a top end rebuilt every 20 hours. Some say 30 hours, and I have heard people not racing run 2 strokes for 60-80 hours without a rebuild. Then they say 4 strokes are full engine rebuilds when they go (and the cost of the actual pistons and rods are significantly higher on the 4 strokes?) I will be riding not nearly as hard as many people on here would. I understand the powerband difference and all of that. I am more concerned with wrench time and cost to ride over anything. P.S. Holy crap, people have their bikes overpriced on craigslist. I am trying to pick up a small bike for my fiance and I am seeing like 2004-2007 TTR 125L's for like $2,000- $2,200..... a 10-13 year old small displacement trail bike???
  5. Hey guys I recently bought a 99cr125 long story short it needed a clutch cable and perch. I ordered new clutch cable and a cheap 10$ perch and new boysen clutch basket and plates. The bike runs great it's just super hard to pull the clutch. I lubed it very generously and I have it routed correctly i don't know what it could be I'm not the weakest dude out there but man does it kill my hand and fingers and it's quite annoying. Anybody have some advice? Thanks
  6. I own a 2013 TXC310, and would like to hear any suggestions to make it competitive in the hard enduro scene (specifically re-gearing). -SLR Fanga dagen
  7. Hey, Now this topic is all over the internet and I know theres no real answer, but I just wanted to hear your opinion do think 2 stroke or 4 stroke is better and why? Thanks
  8. In your opinion, which Factory Team would you race for? -Suzuki -Honda -Kawasaki -Yamaha -Husqvarna -KTM -Also, 2 stroke or 4 stroke?
  9. It’s ben a long time since I’ve ben on this app but got a question for you ktm 2020 ktm guys Recently got my 2020 ktm350sxf . I got like 3 hours on it any of you guys have any flameout issues or Inconsistent throttle? The best way to explain it is if I come into a corner grab the clutch use the rear brake to turn get in throttle and drop it sometimes it’ll just backfire and die on me. It’s not every lap but it Atleast happens once in a 30 minute Moto. Enough to cause concern and annoyance. I did get a 2 year warranty on the bike, I’ve ben looking at the fuel tuners and the fuel rails they have to supposedly fix the flameout problem but not sure if that’ll void my warranty or not? Anyone have any similar issues if so what did you do to fix it?
  10. So my little 125 Chinese Lifan motor pitbike recently started bogging for seemingly no reason when I give it full throttle. After playing with the carb I took it off and put it on another 125 and it worked fine, same with my spark plug, so I'm guessing that's not the issue. I then took the air filter off and the bogging problem went away. The bike was running pretty good, although a little rich with some backfire, but it never bogged until just recently. Hasn't been trashed, only ridden on a few pretty easy dirt tracks. Any thoughts on what it could be? I've yet to check my valves properly as I don't have small enough feeler gauges on me at the moment, but will get around to that soon.
  11. I’ve read the manual, it says warm the bike up for 3 minutes and then let it sit for 3 minutes and check to see if oil comes out from the check bolt. When the bikes been sitting for a while and hasn’t been running oil just drips out of the check bolt. I’ve heard that as long as it drips out when the bike is cold it should be fine. If I do what the manual says and warm the bike up for 3 minutes and let it cool down for 3 minutes no oil will come out of the check bolt. If I top it up until it comes out as the manual says when I let the bike sit overnight the oil will come out of the bolt real fast. Does this mean it’s too full? If someone knows anything about this or have a similar bike let me know. Thanks :)
  12. I am looking at getting my first dirt bike, I have ridden quads and have always wanted to ride bikes. Before people start sharing there opinions about 2 stroke vs 4, this is what I'm looking to get out of the bike. Something that is fun and easy to learn on, Period. Don't worry about maintenance costs or the "thrill" of 2 strokes etc... I originally though 2 stroke but my buddy has a 2 stroke kx250 and i felt like i was out of control every time time i gave more then a touch of throttle. Is this because I'm new to riding dirt bikes or is this a 2 stroke thing. I want something that is easy to control and I like what people say about the smooth power bands on the 4 strokes. Cheers, Kyler
  13. So I have a crf 50, I Was feeling the gears and now my rear tire is locked up and I seem to can't get it back to nutraul, All the gears seem to work fine I Can roll it when i hold down the gear shifter and it will only roll backwards free, Could anyone tell me what this could be maybe What I should do ? THANKYOU
  14. Hey folks, need advice. Manual of my dirt bike says I should check motor oil level on a flat surface on a side stand. Problem is oil level changes dramatically when handlebars are turned left versus pointing straight, I saw videos people check it with handlebars turned and I don't know what to do😂😂 any advice??
  15. Which bike would you buy and why? KTM XCF 250 Yamaha YZ250fx thanks!
  16. I'm looking at these two bikes as dualsports for the price and mpg. Even though I just said I'm looking at these two as dualsports I plan on putting slicks on them because I already have a dirt bike. I don't plan on any crazy mods with them except for maybe an exhaust. Which one would you recommend and why? And if you want you can throw in the CRF250L rally model as well.
  17. Hello everyone, Silly question here, but i'm not quite sure if my '15 CRF250R with a Yoshimura slip-on has a rev-limiter, as i can never hear it high in the gear (what i think is high.. as i don't know how much it likes to rev..). Is there something i can check to see if it has one? or am i perhaps not even hitting it? I'm fairly new to this type of stuff so thought i'd come here and ask. Thanks in advance!
  18. Hey guys, I have an 09 kx250f That I just fully rebuilt.....new crank, new bearings, new cylinder, new piston and rings with stock compression ratio, new cam chain, 2 new OEM intake valves, reshimmed, timing is 100% correct...and i still cant get it to fire up! Took the whole carb apart and cleaned it...used carb cleaner and compressed air. Still nothing. Then I noticed that when I slowly push down on the kick starter I hear air leaking from the air filter. ...but ONLY when the choke is on. When the choke is off, no air leaking. Note- i did adjust the timing one tooth over on the exhaust side and see what that does....still nothing! Just trial and error. That couldnt have damaged any valves correct?? I put timing back and still nothing new. Maybe I need to rejet? What jets are you guys running? Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks
  19. So, i recently bought an ok condition TDX 125, and i'd need to know how often to change the oil. I don't have a service manual, and i cant find one online.
  20. Yes, I am asking what to buy, I’m sure there are a million other threads with a very similar question, but before bashing me for posting, please understand that although I am talking about the whole topic, I want to focus a large portion of this post on the expense of the two bikes, mostly the repair expense. Now that we’ve got that cleared up, I’m an intermediate rider, bought a brand new 2018 250XC last year and love the bike. I race hare scrambles, but lately I’ve been riding MX a lot and thinking about trying a new 4 stroke and getting something that will handle the track a bit better (suspension-wise). I’ve been told the 350’s are about as expensive as they get to repair when it comes to the engine, but I don’t truly know what the case is. Does anyone have some round-about numbers, any comparisons to the expense of the 450? Yes, I know the 450 costs a few hundred more up front, I don’t care about that, just looking at maintenance. Also, I’m worried that being used to the 250 2 stroke (and I ride with the red spring in, I like an aggressive feel) I will have a hard time getting used to a 350F, kind of like getting on a 250F where I feel like I’m pounding on the throttle to keep it moving. Is this anything to be worried about? In every other way I lean towards 350, being a 2 stroke guy, liking the lighter-weight, more nimble-feeling bikes.
  21. Do you think it's possible to register my ttr125 as a moped or motorcycle in California, and what would I need to do it, i live in a small town wanna be able to ride it down to town without a ticket
  22. Think I could reuse old valves in a new head with just lapping them. Valve clearance was still in spec on the old head. Nothing major failed on the old head just a couple deep scratches on cam journal.
  23. Alright, so I’m not sure if I’m posting to the right form/thread. My apologies if so. Alright so, I bought this 06 KTM 450sx from a kid that had little to no experience besides this one bike he had; he said “all it needs is the timing to be done right” but claimed he didn’t know how to set it up right and didn't want to invest any more time in it. Surely this wasn’t just the case. So I took it apart and tried putting it back together. I got the chain timing right at least I’m sure I did. Getting it TDC with the timing marks yadayada.. so I found where he was stumped, and just decided to sell it I guess. At first when I found top dead center; the top of the piston was about an eighth from being flush with the top of the cylinder as you can see in the pics provided. Surely it can’t be like that right? I’ve seen vids where their piston comes all the way up. First red flag. It wouldn’t go any higher than that, and yes that is TDC, which is where the notch was located. So I decided to hook the chain back up at so called “tdc” and it probably cranked over twice before coming to a halt. It just felt like something was mating. Now when I took it apart, the piston was actually stuck flush where tdc is supposed to be at (flush with the top of the cylinder). I don’t think it’s mating with the valves as they have a dome and sit above the cylinder. So I took off the cylinder to inspect the crank/rod and sure enough the rod is straight but what came to my attention was these gear markings. As I’m almost positive aren’t supposed to be there right? Also the crank was stuck and I had to wiggle it but it wouldn’t crank unless turned the opposite direction. As in on the flywheel you can turn it over manually clockwise, but once you start turning it over counterclockwise it comes to a stop. This is after taking it apart and setting it up with the piston not being flush with the top of the cylinder. Yes it’s in 6th gear, and yes the chain in on there atm. Thanks for reading, any help is appreciated as I am new to messing with 4 strokes or never really go into a bottom end before.
