  1. Hi, so i just bought a new 2013 yz250 and was wondering what everybody used in terms of oils, mix and engine, I know it says to run yamamlube but i just feel like that stuff is cheap, ive never used the stuff so thats just my opinion. I race and im always pinned so i just wanted to know what everyones go to oils are. I used amsoil interceptor and the motul sytnthetic tranny expert, 10w 30 on my 08 sx125.
  2. Personally this is the time i want to ride, a light rain is a god sent. I just love riding in the rain, but when i look in the parking lot there are almost no people left because they don't want to get wet........ So what you're favorite weather to ride in the summer? and do you tolerate rain?

    What Kind of grease should I be using on the steering bearings and swing arm planning on taking apart this week and cleaning and greasing everything
  5. What oils and lubricants should you always have for a 4 stroke dirt bike? What else should you always have for a 4 stroke in general?
  6. So im putting my bike back together in a week or two, the entire thing. Gonna be quite a project. Anyway, im cleaning everything up too. Theres dirt on the rad hoses, on the air box stuff, plastic pieces (not the plastics) are dirty, all things that carb cleaner will wear away at, the non metals. Obviously ill be using a rag and maybe a non-wire brush, but whats a good cleaner to use to make all that stuff look new?

    Oil Q&A With Spectro Oils

    Question: Have a couple of simple questions. What makes one oil better than another? What should be in a good off-road motorcycle oil and what should not? Everybody claims to be the best, I've even heard that many "test results" published are not even applicable to motorcycles. Answer: Here at Spectro, we've been making motorcycle oils since 1966 and continually update our formulas as oil technology improves. The true test of an oil is how well it performes over time, not the hype and half truthes used by others in marketing claims. I'll explain some of the basics of oil, keeping it as simple as possible. Oils are compounded using three categories of ingredients: 1. Additives usually combined into a ‘package’. 2. Base oils (these may be mineral oils or synthetics). 3. Viscosity index improvers made of different types of molecules for different purposes. We are committed to using the top shelf products within all three of these categories, and we continually tune our compounds to maximize quality. What this means is this: Additive packages are revised every year by Infineum, the chemicals arm of ExxonMobil. They do all of the wear testing and analysis to ensure the packages meet the required OEM specifications thankfully, because this is the hardest work in the process. Some of these packages are built to be used at several optional treat rates for different uses. They perform dispersant, rust/corrosion inhibition, anti-foaming, wear protection, anti-acid and oxidation protection duties. We always opt for the maximum treat rate allowable. It costs us more money but we believe it is money very well spent for wear and rust/corrosion protection. Then, we specially modify the package with more zinc/phosphorus (typically 1800ppm) for even better cam, lifter, and main bearing wear protection. This adds significantly more to the cost. Only a small handful of companies do this. This is the reason for the high levels you see on the additive charts. The base oils we buy are different from most of our competitors oils also. We buy exclusively from ExxonMobil for continued quality and consistency. You can buy cheaper base oils on the ’spot’ market, but you will lose all of the aforementioned advantages. Unfortunately, we pay dearly for this benefit. The finer base oils have a higher natural viscosity index, meaning they thin less when temperature rises. This enables us to formulate a more thermallystable motor oil than our competition. The Heavy Duty viscosity index is a perfect example of what can be accomplished with higher quality VI improvers and higher VI base oils. The viscosity index improvers do additional work on the oils to even further lessen the thinning out as heat rises. The market is flooded with cheap VI improvers none of which we have ever used, by the way. One category is Polystyrene. Another category is Olefincopolymers OCP which most higher quality motorcycle OEM oils are made with: OCPs cost more money than polystyrene. At Spectro, we choose an even more expensive product that is higher still in shear stability and in its ability to survive in a gearbox. For us, this is more money well spent. By the way, the straight grades do not need this component which is why they work fine with methanol. This shear stability polymer combined with huge amounts of zinc/phosphorus, is what gives a rider longer lasting oil and a longer lived motor! The higher viscosity index is what gives the rider a smoother, quieter motor with better protection at start up. If you're still hungry for more oil tech, checkout our knowledgebase: http://www.spectro-o...e/dirt/tech.asp I know oil is a hotly debated topic on ThumperTalk, so hopefully this info will help you make a more informed decision about what oil to run in your skoot.

    Air Filter Oil....

    Is there any kind of oil I can use on my filter besides "filter oil"? I have a ton of different oils but no filter oil and no money right now. Thanks
  10. I use Belray air filter oil vs Silkolene because the Belray is like $13/quart whereas the Silkolene is $20+ per bottle, and that bottle is maybe 22 oz. So it's a lot more expensive. But if one is better than the other, I'll go with the better one. Silkolene is thinner than Belray yet the air filter soaks it up easily. Belray is much for viscuous and takes more effort to squeeze excess out of the air filter when soaking it in. I prefer Silkolene from this standpoint. This question is not limited to only Belray and Silkolene. Does anyone have lab test comparisons for which air filter oil is best??

  12. I bought a very expensive set and am having trouble keeping them clean. I usually get a car washbrush (for wheels) and fill a bucket up with soapy water and run the brush over the rim/spokes and that gets all the built up dirt off but when I am done washing it there is always this dirty residue that dries on the wheels/spokes/hubs, particuarly the hub and the bottom part of the smokes behind the rotor and in other hard to get to places. Any tips?

  14. One that doesn't sling off, somewhat cheap, and one that will last a while before having to reapply
  15. Since it's 14 years after the drz first started being produced, and your bike is brand new, it's immune to common failure points. It has a warrantee, afterall. Previously 'loctite fixed' bikes need not apply. Previously owned (used) bikes need not apply. This is for -new- machines that haven't been touched besides changing the oil/fluids and then going out for wheelies. If you do the loctite fixes, stator fixes, free power mod, MCCT, or any of the FAQ section, the bike is no longer eligible to be included. This is only for folks that want to ride and believe that Suzuki updated -anything- on the drz. Post your new bike along with year and milage. Check in every 10,000 miles or so, and let us know how it goes. any takers ?
  16. What is the best way to clean your bike after Riding because i always use a hose and get all the mud off and wipe smudges but when it dries off it always re appears, i was think a pressure washer but wouldnt that damage seals?? im a hardcore enduro rider, whats the best solution
  17. I've had this issue since I got the bike. The plates are flat, no grooving in the clutch basket, changed oil, checked clutch lifter mechanism, but still the clutch plates seem to stick together. If the bike is in gear and I pull the clutch, I still can't roll the bike. What's going on? The only thing I can think of is that the fluid in there keeps the friction disks and the metal disks somewhat stuck together. My Honda service manual says to use SAE 10W-40 or equivalent, which I've used, and before that I believe gear oil was in it. Should I use a thinner oil like ATF, and maybe the plates will spin freely when no clutch pressure is applied?
  18. I'm not sure this topic has been posted before, but what the hey! Ok gang, who is your favorite dirt bike hero of all time, who is the badest of the bad? Who do you think drew interest in our sport and created the most commotion? It doesn't matter if the person is of the vintage era, or of today. Just choose your fave! Have fun, The Dude!Some of the Dudes faves!!!

    how much paint ?

    I am repainting the frame on my 2000 yz426 and was wondering how many cans of spray paint I will need to order to cover the frame and subframe. I was going to order the kit from color-rite but wanted to be sure I order enough. I was looking at ordering http://www.colorrite.com/product/yamaha-0564-deep-purplish-blue-metallic-c-dpbmc-1905.cfm The complete repair package for 79.95. Will this be enough to get the job done ? I tried to find a answer on the forum but didn't see one.
  23. I see all this pictures of yz 125s all shined up with shiny graphics=new ik. But everything else is shiny tires rims frame... I have a 2002.
  24. Time to stating putting some things away for the winter. I'm rather skeptical about stay Bill and such products, however I am not a chemical engineere so I can't make up my mind for sure.
