  1. Hi all. Recently put a lithium battery into the XTrainer. Worked perfectly for the first ride with it in, but on the second, it seems that the battery level whilst riding is problematic. The bike starts up perfectly each time, and has full power going to the starter motor. Here is the problem, when the bike is on and the headlight is on low beam, if I pull in the front brake to activate the rear tail light, the headlight turns off, and sometimes the speedo cuts out, indicating a loss of electrical power whenever I pull in the brakes. It seems like pulling in the front brake is completely draining the power, however, if I pull in the front brake until a complete stop and stall the bike, turning off the headlight AND speedo, it still gives FULL power to the starter motor when I start it again, which means the battery is perfect? Does anyone know what's up? Cheers, Alex
  2. I have a 2008 kx250f I recently split the outer cases and drained all the oil then took apart the cooling system and replaced the water pump seals and I still get a milky oil look in my sight glass when I start the bike but then goes away in after I turn the bike off and the oil cools. There was no coolant in the bike when I did my first kick over (bike ran for 20 seconds) so my question is does full synthetic oil look like this when it heats up? Or starts moving quickly? I also see little air bubbles when I turn the bike off but they go away also. Like I said the bikes oil looks brand new after leaving the bike alone for 10 minutes or when I drain it, it also looks amazing. Sorry for any spelling issues I'm trying to type this on a tablet.
  3. I've got a 2000 yz125 I bought it with stock pipe silencer and reeds and just put on a vforce cage and pro circuit platinum pipe with an r-304 shorty. I know I'm gonna have to go leaner on my jets but the question is how lean and which jets? Main jet for sure I know but should I change my idle and needle as well? At the moment the bike floods itself out so badly it wont even fire so I'm thinking I need to move down a couple on my main atleast.
  4. I have a 1985 XR600r, I rebuilt the dual Carbs putting stock size main jets in, put a new XR foam air filter in it, new plug, set intake and exhaust valves to stock setting in service manual. The bike starts up and revs great. My issue is whenever I hammer the throttle very fast it tends to bog down and die. I didn’t notice any leaks in my air intake boots. I’m totally stumped, I don’t know if it could be a float measurement, ignition, different jets. Anything would help. Im going to be putting on a supertrapp muffler and new bigger jets in the next couple weeks.
  5. So I have a 98’ YZ125 and the other day I was riding I made sure everything was working good on the bike that morning. Me and my friend get to the track and I try to start the bike up and it won’t start for a good 15 minutes. I finally get the bike started using the choke on and off a few times and then I do one lap and notice a change in power and no powerband. I get off the bike after about 5 minutes of riding and look down at my top end where the spark plug is and see that it’s smoking a little bit and was piping hot then I notice black “shreds” coming out of the top of the Athena kit where the cyclinder head and the casing meet and the spark plug was black on the top... any suggestions on what to do.
  6. I was riding the other day when my DRZ sputtered out. I pulled over and found the vacuum hose disconnected from the petcock. I reconnected it and rode home. Fast forward a few days, left the house and the bike sputtered out again. This time not only was the vacuum hose disconnected, it was gone! Pushed the bike a mile back home. Noticed the petcock leaking a little fuel and the smell of fuel in my oil. Ordered an OEM petcock, installed it, drained the oil and put in fresh oil. Installed a replacement vacuum hose. New spark plug. BIKE STILL WONT STAY RUNNING. It will start if I prime it but wont stay running, sputters out after a moment. Is it my carb? Could the vacuum hose coming loose while riding damage the internals of the carb? I drained the float valve, fuel stopped coming out after a moment. It was idling fine before all this. Fresh oil, new petcock, vacuum hose intact. I'm pulling the carb tomorrow. What should I be looking for? Thanks in advance.
  7. Putting back together a 2000 kx250 project bike I picked up a while ago after replacing the crank, bearings, and seals, etc. and have a question about the shift drum assembly and positioning. Must it be in a specific gear or neutral when putting the cases back together??? I removed everything from the case halves and want to insure that I put it back together right but can not find anything in the service manual that relates to this area and timing. PLEASE HELP!
  8. Took the Rt180 out today and rode for a bit, I went full out and bike began to bog and sputter and wouldn’t really get very fast, I did however take it out a little while ago and it did it again but after warming up it wasn’t bogging and sputtering as much but the issue was not gone, It sometimes bogs and sputters in neutral and sometimes doesn’t Any and All Help Appreciated Jared
  9. I believe this is a topic which hasnt been explored much on here as I havn't been able to find any info. I am curious to know if there is a road legal tyre that isnt knobbly that will fit onto standard 21" and 19" rims on a cr250. I plan on commuting on the bike on road and dont thing I'll be using it much on the dirt any more. A few days ago I nearly head on with a T junction because the knobblys didnt hold up while breaking. Has anyone on here switched from knobbly to road legal flattrack type tyre on original rims? Any pros cons to doing this? Sizes, makes, options would be appreciated Cheers guys
  10. Wiseco pro lite piston, in a sleeve cylinder. How much clearance do I set it up at? 0.05mm 0.06? 0.07? Etc. YZ250 Thank you
  11. My throttle cable broke right close where it connects to the lever. I ordered one of of Ebay that was the right length and looked similar. When I got it in the mail and compared it to the old one, the "bolt" that screws in to the housing is bigger then the old one so I can't screw it in there. Can someone tell me how I can make it work? I'm including pictures.
  12. So I have never actually posted on one if these forums. I usually just stalk them to get answers but I messed up and I might be out 800 bucks🙃 I have a 2013 CRF250L that I recently bought and I wanted to get supermoto wheels for it. I got online and almost ordered a set of warp 9 wheels but then I saw an add on Craigslist. Long story short I purchased lightly used warp9 wheels from a 2012 CRF250X not realizing the axles are different sizes. The rims are the same size as what comes in the kit from warp 9 but the spacers and bearings are larger on the wheels that I got. Does anyone know if I can buy new bearing and spacer kits to go in these hubs to fit them on my bike or will I need to purchase new hubs entirely? I work on a fishing boat and I'm off the coast of Oregon for a few weeks and wanted to order something so I can get these wheels on my bike when I get home. Thanks, The guy who f***** up
  13. Hey, guys I recently bought a 2007 KTM 250f. The bike can be bump started easily and runs fine as long as I keep it revved up a little bit. But, unfortunately right when I stop revving the bike it dies within 0-3 seconds no matter how warm the bike is. Aswell I have not been able to successfully kickstart the bike I always have to bump start it (this could be because the choke is not working properly. Although, I doubt that because I still can not kick start it even when its warm.) Any tips, tricks, or ideas on fixing these problems would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Timing SP100/DR100

    I Have a 1983 SP100 that I traded for a set of wheels, I hear the SP100 is essentially the same as a dr100 but with street legal lighting, and Since this is my first bike I am doing a full gasket set on the top and bottom end. But I can’t seem to find any information on timing the little ohv contraption. Please help.
  15. Need some help guys please.... Has anybody ran road legal hi /low beam headlights and tail /brake lights of a battery without breaking into the cr250 wiring. I want to get through full MOT with only a rechargable battery for the lighting that will last a few hours. Any cheap and easy way of setting this up and or Ideas for battery and lights to buy? Help would be much appreciated Cheers guys
  16. Hey I just bought a 2013 crf250x with no owners manual. I just want to know the oil quantities for the engine oil and the transmission oil. I have been told they fill from the same place, is this true? I thought engine oil filled on one side and transmission on the other? Thanks
  17. Hi guys. My first post on this site so will try to keep it short... I did my first rebuild on a kx 250. All went well. Awaiting barrel to start. I replaced snapring on idler gear with an internal snapring(only found out the difference afterwards). Someone told me the snapring with ears for internal grooves will fly off the shaft due to the centrifugal spinning of the holes.... Now its driving me mad... Does this normally wprk or should i open up and replace with the correct one and have peace of mind... What does the expert say
  18. [Story] So I was riding and honestly riding pretty hard, and pulling up wheelies, and when I came to turn into a parking lot I noticed the sound of some "clunking" like something was catching, so I went to pull over and look at the bike , off eye I didn't see anything and got back on the bike, put it in first and went to take off and it would go a couple inches and catch, (stop, caught up, won't roll past a 5 to 10 inches, I had no clue what it was thought maybe a gear caught, rolled it back and fourth putting it in neutral and back in first, it went in gear fine but when I went to go letting off clutch, it would catch, a couple more times and heard a snap , then everything was "fine" no more catching riding like it was, I did hear a ding on the ground I thought, so I turned around went back to look and found a broke bolt, now I was in a parking lot and it could of been random off anything but i had a feeling it was from my bike, picked ut up and went home , bike ran fine no clunking no catching After looking online for drz400sm bolts , I think I found a match making me fell like it is definitely from my bike, just don't know from what [Question] does anyone know what This bolt is to? and if I should not ride with it being broke off ? Or is it atleast possible to ride around a little and possible to the store for a new bolt
  19. I'm 16 years old, 5'11" and weigh around 130 lbs. Tall and lanky. Looking to buy an off-road bike that doesn't have to hit such a high speed (maximum cc's to be around 125 for me) and Honda's CRF100 caught my eye at such a low price. Would this bike fit me? I'd love for this to work out. Thanks guys!
  20. Does anybody know how to adjust the stock shift linkage on a 2001 ttr 125. I know i can buy a shifter pedal to bypass the linkage but i dont want to spend money on a good running bike i have alot of projects already.. Thanks you ahead of time
  21. So I bought a cr250r with some odi lock ons. I wanted to remove the left one and when I go unscrew the bolt, the bolt is not there! Pretty sure the guy who had it before me guled it on or something. How can I remove it without damaging the new bars?
  22. The other day up at my local trails a four wheeler pulled out in front of me and I completely snapped my front left fork in half. I can't find any place that still sells forks and I don't want to replace them with cr 85 forks. Is there anyplace that sells replacement forks? Thank you.
  23. I am setting up my bike to do some road riding. I am completely new to tires and would like anyone's thoughts or opinions on the tires I want to put on my bike. I understand that the first number is width, and the second number is the aspect ratio and then the final number is rim size, but I am still not confident in the fitment as the tires I want aren't the stock size. My bike's stock tires are: Front: 80/100x21 Rear: 110/100x18 The tires I want: Front: (Undecided) Rear: Shinko 712 - 110/90x18 If anyone wants to suggest other road tires I am open to anything. Thanks - SLR
  24. Need help or advice on picking a bike. My last bike was an 04crf250. So been off the bike a few years. My dilemma is a 2009 rmz450 or a 2012 kx450f or maybe even a 2014 yzf450. RMZ is from a dealership. Was owned and maintained by an apprentice who works there at the shop so I'm sure maintainence was kept up on it, however the guy is a racer so that bike has been through a lot however taken care of. Guy said the bike practically has a new engine and does have some mods, fmf full system, rekluse clutch and forks have been revalved for I believe 180 or 200lb rider, I am 150. And other small stuff. I think price OTD I can get it for is $3K or $$3200. 2012 kx450f. Don' know much about but seems bike has been taken care of decently. Has KYB suspension. No mods really. Just hand guards and pro taper handle bar. And that's really it. Guy said he is pretty firm on $3800 but I'm sure will take $3600 And then there is a 2014 YZF450 that I've had my eye on but don' really want a Yamaha unless someone can change my mind. Looks like it' in decent condition and guy is asking $3700. Any pros or cons to these bikes or personal experience that you guys can share? Thanks!
  25. Hey all, I have been waiting for this day for quite a while. I am finally able to fix my bike, i've been in debt for some time but the day has come Now i have a question, when I got my bike checked out at the shop, i was told i could rebuild my crank with any rod and bearings from 1986-2000. I am going to purchase an entire new hot rods crank instead. Am i able to order any crank from 1986-2000 for my bike? Mine is a 1987. I just want to make sure I am getting the correct part before I spend the money! Appreciate any replies or help. Thanks!!
