    Love the bike. Complete rebuild/restoration ($4000 or so). The 2nd/5th gears and 14R/48 sprockets are great choices. I love the look I've ended up with and couldn't be happier with the ride on and off road. Great bike for me.

  11. Not sure where to put this question, so hope here is good. I want to buy a good tire changer and balancer for my garage. The plan is to do my own tires, and some for family, friends, and probably a few neighbors to. I hate junky tools, but it doesn't nned to be the best either because I am not running a commercial shop doing many tires a day. In the past i just used the axle bolt and my bench vise to try balancing with the squeeze on lead spoke weights. So want a bit better balancer. But for spoked wheels are those the go to type of weights or is there a better way to balance? Thanks
  12. I have very little experience off road so I have tried to prepare by getting geared up properly as well as fortifying the bike with moose hand-guards and skid plate, scorpion rad guard and flexible signals...I also have a spot gps beacon for real emergencies I still know very little about my bike although I have been trying to learn a bit. I have been lookin out for people willing to teach me some stuff and have found a few locally. I have a great road side assistance plan so I am not too worried if something happened riding on the pavement. But if something happens to the bike off road I will need to patch it up (if possible) to get to the road to call for assistance. I plan on riding alone a lot since I have not met many other dual sport riders in my area yet. I would really appreciate some tips on what I should take with me when venturing away from the paved and roadside assistance covered roads. Just a day trip kit that would help get the 10-20 miles tops back to pavement in case of bang up or break down..Info on common problems with the bike in rough conditions or wrecks and how to avoid them/fix them would also be helpful! Any tips and help are very much appreciated!
  13. Ordered D606, tire spoons, FMF Powercore4, protaper evo cr-high bars, protaper risers, and protaper adapters for my MSR handguards. Going to be an entirely different bike next week! And 65F temps to boot! edit: UPS is now reporting they've lost my tire
  14. Hello fellow ThumperTalkers, I am interested to see and hear about temporary things you guys have done to keep your bike operating for a little longer, for whatever reason.
  15. Just wanted to get this out there for those of you who dont't know about it. A guy came up with what I think is a great idea of designing a sag scale that can be used by one person. Basically you set it up, then sit on the bike and it takes the measurements for you via two instruments you mount onto the bike. I've been looking for something like this every scince I got into dirtbikes and it looks like this guy is the only one to have something like this on the market. From what it looks like he is taking donations on kickstarter.com to get the first production run done. Supposedly supposed to have them on the market sometime this spring. You can check it out here at his website- http://motool.co/products/slacker-digital-sag-scale What's you guys opinion on this? I think it's a rad idea if it works properly, would love to be able to set sag up single handedly. The retail price is steep at I THINK something like $150.00+, but it's not so bad considering your helping another rider and not some giant CEO, always good to support innovative ideas. Just thought I'd get this out there if people don't already know about it, also want to see what kind of opinions everyone has on it. Are there other similar devices cheaper on the market already?
  16. My local shop charges $66 for each. I feel like this is kind of a rip off but don't know if it's worth it to buy a press and spoons to use on 3 tires every 2 years.
  17. So after an extremely frustrating night of trying to mount up a rear tire and new tube I ended up trashing both. I could NOT figure out why I couldn't get the tire over the bead and ended up attacking the bitch and trashing my new sidewall and tube. I took it to my shop in an act of final defeat and the mechanic quickly pointed out my bead lock was tightened into place. I now have a trashed rear almost new tire and a bill for 150 dollars for a new tube, tire, and rim band with installation. This one stings pretty bad. What's your most expensive or embarrassing mess up working on the bike. I figured you guys would at least understand the feeling or have a decent story to make me feel a little less stupid.
  18. I have a 2013 SX-450, but this question would be for any EFI KTM, and I was talking to my dealer about battery charging. I have know him for about twenty years and he is very knowledgeable on KTMs and I am not trying to doubt his word. He stated that during battery charging that the fuel pump is engaged if the negative terminal is not disconnected and it would eventually burn up the pump. Now I have been around the block a few times but I don't know everything. Why would charging the battery engage the pump. Thanks
  19. Does anybody use them, and how well are you able to get them clean, what would you use to clean them, my concern would be the cleaning issue, how would you know you got every bit of debris out of it, thanks
  20. Hello All, I'm going to write an article coming up next month about the "must-have" tools for off-road riders... I have my favorites but really want to hear yours as well. So what is the must have tool in your box? Thanks in advance, Sean
  21. How do you guys keep the rear wheel clean and shiny? I'm guessing the answer is to remove it or at least pull the chain. Mine is dirty and greasy from the chain oil.
  22. I bought the bike this spring, was told it was completely stock and trail ridden. I decided to do a top end rebuild after a few rides at the track. (Bike was still running strong but I wanted to be safe). But that's when the problems started. This is when I found that it had been bored 0.080" over. Shortly after doing the top end, the rod bearing seized. So, I fixed that, got little time on it then the top end went again. The electrode burned off of the plug damaging the piston and head. (Running 93 pump gas and dominator 32:1.). So I bought a new head, jug and started running 50/50 89 rec fuel and VP110. The bike has seized again and now the whole motor is trashed. What in the hell is going on?
  23. Hi, I've been lurking here for a few months while I rebuild a 2003 YZ125 that was given to me in non-running condition. I'm totally new to two strokes. I'm doing the carbs now and am trying to figure out why the previous owner would have set the bike up in the manner he did. (previous owner was a semi pro mx rider so I assume he had a reason). Is there some kind of configuration where the following setup makes sense: The bike has a Pro Circuit system on it Main Jet: 390 Pilot Jet: 37.5 Needle: 82 (with clip in the first position) Spark plug: I lost it but the previous owner insisted that it was important to use the plug from a toyota t100 as a normal spark plug wouldn't hold up. Elevation: <1000 feet Based on what I can find on the internet I'm thinking of doing the following setup: Main Jet: 430 Pilot:37.5 Needle: 82 (clip in slot 3) Am i missing something here? Is there some mod (maybe a hotter coil), that would explain why they used the hotter plug and lean mixture? I should also mention that I was given the bike by a friend who bought it off the previous owner in good working order. My other question concerns installing a new water pump bearing. For the other bearings I've installed I simply dropped them in after heating the case and freezing the bearing. In this instance I am concerned that I might damage the oil seal if I do that. Should I be worried about this? If so, how should i go about installing the bearing? Thanks
  24. I would like to get a work stand for my bike. In the day we all used milk crates. Anyhow... I'm talking about one of those four legged things. Idea being ability to get both wheels off the ground for maintence work. Problem I'm seeing though is it appears they are made for race bikes with much higher clearance. Our bikes are only 12" or so to bottom of frame rails and most the stands appear to be 17" or so high. I think that would be way to high. Does anybody have a work stand recomendation? Do you use one? How about the lifting models?
  25. So my question for you guys. I recently started working on 4-strokes but this applies to every bike out there. Many of the bolts, especially in or around the engine have to be toqued down to the 5-10ft lb range. Now ive checked everything from harbor freight to home depot and even some places online but 99% of the torque wrenches I came across start at 20-30ft lbs or above. Husky brand tools has one that starts at 7ftlbs and is relatively inexpensive at around $100 but im told its inaccurate and not the greatest quality. What other brands of tools go that far down in measurements? Also, its said that torque wrenches are mostly inaccurate at the first and last 10-15% of its torque range. What are your thoughts on this? How true is this? Anyone know of some tools or torque wrenches that work for us riders? Prefer a torque wrench that doesnt cost $300+. And is generally affordable considering it doesnt get used all that often. Thanks for the replies and help.
