  1. Spark plug out of my ssr 125 do u think I looks ok or does it look like it’s been running lean or rich I’m not to good with this type of stuff
  2. I tried to start my bike after about an hour commute with no hitches whatsoever. The engine started turning and then BOOM! I hear this huge pop and it wouldn't start, not even rolling start. I towed it back home with a friend took off the tank and saw that the spark plug blew out.. The cap assembly for the spark plug is completely cracked and missing a part of it. I put a new spark plug in and it started. But now the problem is it doesn't want to stay on when the clutch is pulled in or the bike is just idling. Does anyone have any solution.hopefully people are running into this issue or know what's going on? Old spark plug on the right 
  3. 1999 YZ125. 38mm Smartcarb. 30:1 with Redline Racing oil. Plug is an NGK BR9ES (stock heat-range) that's been side-gapped (it was running too rich for so long I've got a good collection of BR9xxx plugs. Idle hands and all...). I got the bike in terrible shape for cheap (but paid more than I should have) a couple of years ago. I've been slowly fixing its issues one by one. The biggest issues were a cracked tank and a carb that was buggered in several different ways including running pig-rich and actually had one of the screws holding the top on replaced by a wood screw. I decided to splurge on a Smartcarb and after chasing my tail for a long time turning the adjuster the wrong way to lean it out (RTFM) I've got it to this point. Two-stroke gurus, is this good? Would a click or two leaner be playing with fire or be just right?
  4. 2018 purchased with 40-53 hours on the stock motor, pistons, vavles, shims, transmission, everything; besides an aftermarket yoshimura slip on exhaust. Checked the vavle clearance before I road it and they were all in spec with suzuki's service manual. Let's move on. The bike was primary used for I dont know what. The last owner said he did some riding in the Oregon sand dunes. No idea if it was raced before that. My goal was to turn it into a road legal dual sport. I opted for a 2012 RMZ because they come with a dignostic port behind the front number plate mounted on the ECU that when kicked over provides a constant voltage of 13.50V to 14.50V ish. To power all the road legal stuff. Upon completion I replaced the hour meter with a Trail Tech Endurance 2 at 0 miles and 0 hours. Other then a stainless steel oil filter, changed spark plug, and cleaned air filter the engine remained stock. I commuted with the bike to work daily which is 3 miles there and 3 back on 40 mph roads. During lunch i ride for one hour about 15-20 miles on some wood trails. Blah blah blah. Fast forward some more and the bike has 90 accumalated hours total. I have not check the vavle clearance since getting the bike. Most of the riding was around 45-55 mph average for top speed to 35 everywhere else. My oil changes have been every 10 hours give or take how hard and how many miles I've driven. Changed with full synthetic maxima pro plus 10w40 oil. Air filter was cleaned once in between, from the time I got the bike till 90 hours........ lay it on me but wait till you finish this read. Okay so up to this time I'll reiterate that the engine is still stock. No top end rebuilts, no vavle shims, NOTHING! All OEM. At 90 hours I changed the gearing from the stock 13/49 to 15/49 since then I've added 15 hours on it with the same riding habits as before with my longest highway/freeway trip being 30 minutes at 18 miles mostly highway miles driven at or around 65Mph. Yeah she was screaming at that too, with a 5 speed gear box. It was sketchy even with that changed gearing. Blah blah again. Now I'm at 110 hours and 1500 miles on a still stock motor besides transmission gearing. My vavle spacing hasn't changed. And I decided to tear down the top end to see what I'm working with. Cylinder, piston, rings, conrod, vavles, spark plug, head, etc look okay with normal wear and tear. So in conclusion. I will order a forged piston to deal better with the higher rpms that I run at. BUT THAT AS FAR AS ENGINE MODS WILL BE IT. I haven't notice any power losses and love that gearing. It still works well down low. Now take it or leave it but this is an honest tracker from my level of riding and mechanicle knowledge. I'm not getting paid for this or influenced by a company or brand. I'm just posting this because there is, in my opinion no real knowledge posted about this topic but a lot of people are curious. Thanks.
  5. 17FE450 , read my plug thread... sorry De smogged, reeds removed, fmf slip on, oem map switch, vortex tuner. I have always felt like this bike runs on the lean side, even after upgrades mentioned above. It's just feels like it heats up quickly and runs hotter than my other 4 strokes. All of the vortex trim switches are in the neutral (5) position. Map 1 (on the handlebars switch) is preset to vortex power map Map 2 on the bars is preset to vortex traction map The plug pictured has 30 hrs. Any 4 stroke guys out there want to throw in their .02c? Any down side to richening up the vortex 1 click each on low, mid, high?
  6. It’s from a Yz125x. Bike was trail ridden but on the pipe a few times. Plug has about 5 hours. The bike runs great so I think jetting is good? I run 32:1. Any thoughts?
  7. So I am in the middle of changing out the spark plug on my 2007 Honda crf230f that I got late last year. I need help. Ive removed the stock spec,d NGK 4929 DPR8EA-9 plug. For the new plug I am trying to install NGK 2202 DPR8EIX-9 plug. This is their Iridium plug. Ive verified on NGK's website as well as the vendor (Fortnine) that this is the correct part number for my bike. What i am having issue with is the terminal post that goes in to the yellow plug boot is too big and wont fit. Has anyone been sucessful in installing this plug? I cant return it and would like to use it. See my pics of the original plug beside the Iridium. Fyi... i removed the minimal dielectric grease i placed in boot. This 10 min task has taken 2 hrs of my time so any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
