  1. Hey, So the bolt that hold the rear brake pedal is stripped (well the threads in the frame). This is on a 2001 cr250. Because this is a special bolt with a collar for the brake pedal to sit on re-threading to the next size up bolt isn't really an option. Is there enough material there to drill out and us a helicoil? Would this be the best method? Anyone know the size/thread of the bolt off hand? side note: The bolt I had previous (fell out while riding and was a nice surprise when I went to hit the brake and couldn't find the pedal) and the new OEM one I got from Honda don't have any provision for a cotter pin even though the parts list show a cotter pin. did I just randomly have 2 bolts that are wrong or is this a 2000/2001 "special feature"
  2. Hi all! This is my first post on the forum so sorry if I'm in the wrong thread. I pulled a 2002 cr80 off the beach that I found abandon there and I recently got it running, but the clutch needs to be replaced/fixed. I can get all of the screws for the clutch cover off but one is behind the foot peg so I can't get a ratchet or wrench back there. Any ideas?
  3. OK here goes... Picked up an 04 200 EXC few months back, needed some work to say the least, wont go into detail of all the things i've fixed on the bike just the current and most present issue I cant seem to fix... it is smoking IE blue smoke/lots of splooge to the point that at the end of a few hour's ride, it's out the tail pipe, running down the back and dripping onto the swing arm/rear break caliper and blue smoking quite a bit. When I first got it, it smoked more and smelled like shit. So first things first went to the carb, I live on the Oregon coast (elevation/temp reference) it's old dirty/stained but inside looks good, came with jetting pilot-45, main-178 needle: no idea what brand guessing stock in the 3rd clip, adjusted the float height due to it leaking gas when bike was upright no tilt with the gas on, Bought JD jet kit and running pilot-45, Main-185 and Needle is blue 3rd clip (JD's recommend specs for my bike @ my attitude). I have also replaced my Inner crankcase seal twice (First time I thought I messed up the O-ring so redid to make sure). I've rebuilt the top end/new piston (same thing) cleaned the PV, NOTE HERE that the PV has some issues, it seems to work fine but the screw that goes on top of the cylinder, down into the PV/flap would not come out preventing me from removing the flap to clean it, however it move's/ function's correctly, and has minimum clearance on both sides. One of the PV cover bolts that also works at the exhaust spring holder, was over torqued at some point (impact driver prob), or a result in a hard impact, the hole the bolt goes into is flailed/jared open a bit, not bad, not in the way of any function/ PV Gearing/hinge, it is not needed for that area to be air tight as their is also a breather that goes out of the PV so will not result in an "air leak" or loss in Top end PSI.... anyway... it's still smoking.... quite a bit.. now the bike itself rides fine I feel, the carb does puke gas when tilted over slightly/ hard to start (kick start) after flooded (like all bikes tho) I don't have any stalling/low idle issues outside of user error on clutch control. Honestly outside of it smoking as much as it does I would think nothing is wrong with it.. I have also tried raising the needle Clip to 2nd clip and it changed nothing at all, not even feel of the bike/response and have a new Spark plug I have yet to put on the bike. I have also "compromised" the crankcase Gasket (new one in the mail) while I was putting the Crankcase back on but that should do nothing with the exhaust just a little gear oil leak not relevant but throwing it out there. So I am at a loss... I've been toying with the idea of getting a Lectron carb... However... would hate to drop $400~$500 and the issue still persist, if it's a jetting/carb/float issue that would fix it and improve MPH/fuel consumption Or something with the PV? but I don't see the PV causing that much smoke/sploogee... I've ridden the bike normally/hard and nothing's happened but I don't want to keep pushing it and possibly clip the bike. Any ideas? "Oh help me 2 stroke community you're my only hope"
  4. Hello fellow dirtbike heads, anyone know if this fastener bolt for the handlebar got a specific name? Or if its special designed for this model of handlebar fasteners only. Reason why I ask is because I decided to put on a raiser to my handlebar but noticed halfway through that I only have 1 longer version of the new fastener bolt (raiser and bolt came with when from previous owner) And unfortunetly the manufacturers sell them seperatly. Would suck to have to buy brand new full fastener kit (50$) because of 1 missing Bolt. So yeah, anyone know the name of this type of bolt? Thanks in advance, kind regards John
  5. It looks very different from anything I've ever seen, so if you know what this is PLEASE HELP! It either fell off of my 2006 yz250f, my 1993 Chevy S10, or my 1967 Ford F100. If you have ANY idea on what this could be, please let me know! It has a totally round head and I have no clue where it could've came from. I believe it came off of one of the trucks, but it's still worth a shot to put it on the dirtbike forum.
  6. My friend recently got his chain adjuster bolt that threads into the swingarm stuck because the previous owner put loctite or something on it and the bolt broke and is almost but not completely flush with the swingarm. he tried drilling it out and it didn't work, tried an easy out and the easy broke and is stuck inside the bolt now. Any tips to avoid buying a whole new swingarm?
  7. Hi all, Recently noticed a snapped bolt on the left hand side of my motor. I have attached photos. I believe its an engine casing bolt, however i'm unsure. I want to remove it and replace it however have thought about leaving it as nothing is leaking. What are your thoughts? Thanks
  8. Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum here. I apologize if I've posted this in the wrong spot. I've been trying to remove the engine on my 1989 yz125 and have had some difficulty with the swing arm bolt. It's my first bike so I'm not too familiar with the tear down process. I've looked up some videos on how to do it and it seems like it generally requires some heavy hitting while making sure not to screw up the threads or mushroom it all together. However, my bike looks different than all the others i've seen in that it cannot be pushed through to the other side can you pull it out or what? the bolt seems to have a little play so i know its not stuck. I don't have a manual for it and have not been able to find any info online. Thanks in advance!
  9. Hey I've been experiencing problems with my powervalve. I turned the powervalve adjuster with a wrench without loosening the crew that holds it in place (forgot all about the screw). I then loosened the screw, realizing my mistake, but when I tightened it back on it didn't stop the adjustment knob from moving freely. My bike is a KTM 125sx. I unscrewed the screw out completely and it is only a short screw that does not physically contact the power valve adjuster. How is this screw suppose to work? Am I missing a part or is the screw suppose to hold the adjuster by air compression or something? p.s. There is a small constant leak of oil from the adjuster knob, but poured oil for a second or two after shutting bike off last time I rode it. Also the power valve adjustment doesn't seem to change when screwing the adjuster valve in/out but I could be incorrect about this since I haven't had much time to test/mess with it.
  10. Was inspecting a head on a newly acquired bike i gotten in a trade. Everything was up to par until reassembly. My buddy told me the bolt was to be torqued to 7 ftlbs which was correct but the bolt snapped off into the cylinder. Its the 2 side bolts on the right side that go down into the engine. One is torqued to 7 the other is broke off. Is this going to be okay to run my bike with just need opinions. Do not have smart remarks please. I just want some advice on what i should do or if you think it will be okay. Thanks!
  11. Hello soldiers of mud DRZ 400: cheap bolts brought me here. my bike had replacement anodized bolt - M6: the seat bolt broke off in the frame threaded hole. I have to drill it. If I re-thread it, I have to move up a bolt size correct? Now I could weld an M6 NUT behind the drilled out frame hole. But I dont have a welder available. If I use a JB weld (weld in a tube) will it hold a nut to the frame? If it doesn't, then i'll struggle to get the bolt out of the nut...... rethread and move up to an M7? Bolt OR will JB weld hold a nut to the frame of the bike where the seat hole is on the bike's frame? Thanks!!
  12. September 24, 2018 Motor Sports Newswire Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Billy Bolt Finishes Third at Hawkstone Park Cross-Country in Great Britain September 24, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Continuing his recent run of good form, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Billy Bolt once again showed his class in this year’s World Enduro Super Series to claim another podium finish with third at his home round of the championship. In doing so the young Brit moves to the top of the WESS standings with two rounds remaining. Further success for the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna team came from Bolt’s teammates Graham Jarvis and Alfredo Gomez who placed ninth and 10th respectively. Staged at the iconic Hawkstone Park venue the two-day event saw the 650 competitors entered kick things off with a Sprint Enduro qualification on Saturday. Utilising the legendary Motocross circuit and surrounding woodland, riders battled against the clock for position on the Motocross and Enduro special tests. Showing strong pace in the woods, Bolt put in impressive times to qualify an eventual third for Sunday’s two-and-a-half-hour Cross-Country race. Knowing the pace would be hot from the off, Bolt was quick to establish himself inside the top five of the 250 qualifiers. Using his ability to make light work of the technical climbs to his advantage, he moved himself up the leader board to place second at the mid-way point of the race. However, a couple of mistakes saw him lose some time, slipping back one position, but nevertheless he claimed a well-deserved third place result. For Graham Jarvis the Cross-Country nature of the race did not weigh in the Husqvarna rider’s favour. Determined to put on a good show for his home fans, the Erzbergrodeo winner pushed hard and despite suffering a bad start he steadily worked his way forward, gaining positions as the physical nature of the race took its toll on riders. He eventually finished in a hard-fought ninth. Also more accustomed to Hard Enduro terrain, Spaniard Alfredo Gomez had his sights set on a top-10 finish at Hawkstone. Although crashing off the start, he knew the sandy, woodland whoops would slow the field of riders as the race wore on. Feeling strong towards the end, he maintained a fast pace throughout to fight his way home for 10th. The World Enduro Super Series continues with round six at Sweden’s Gotland Grand National on October 26/27. Billy Bolt: “I knew my pace was good today but my plan was to just ride my own race and see where I finished. I knew Josep and Nathan would be fast so I wanted to stick to a steady rhythm and hopefully be not too far behind. I caught up to Nathan at one point and was a little stronger in some of the sections. I started to crash a little bit so just eased off a little and focused on claiming a safe third for the championship. The track was great, there was one rock-step that I was hitting quite hard and jumping – the crowd really loved it but then it started to get a bit gnarly, so I had to take it a little easier. The support from the fans was incredible – all the way around the track they were cheering and spurring me on. Finally, to be back on the podium and also leading the championship has capped off a great weekend’s racing.” Graham Jarvis: “I got a bit of a bad start and had to fight my way through the pack for most of the race. I’m happy with a top-10 and was getting faster towards the end of the race too – so that’s positive. I really enjoyed riding the 250 four-stroke – it’s probably the best bike around here and handles the ruts well when you get off-line. It’s always cool to ride a home race. Having the crowd cheering all the way around was a nice boost. Overall, I’m happy with how things have gone this weekend because my speed on both days was good, so that’s encouraging for the next one.” Alfredo Gomez: “That was a really tough race for me. I started well but came together with Lars Enockl in the first corner and went down. I was running close to last place and so I had to spend the race passing people right up to the end, where I fought through to 10th position. It was very physically tiring, but I am happy to get to the finish.” Results – Hawkstone Park Cross-Country, WESS Round 6 1. Josep Garcia (KTM) 15 laps, 2:30:03.444; 2.

  13. Does anyone know the bolt size or at least the thread pitch for the bolts that hold the rear of the seat down, as well as the bolts on the bottom of the radiator shroud that bolt into the bottom of the radiator? I somehow lost all 4 of these bolts. I'm not sure if this differs between models, but I have a 400S. Thanks!
  14. Sorry if this is not the right forum to post this, but I've recently started taking apart the top end on my 2008 ktm exc-r 450. I was able to loosen 3 out of the 4 bolts that hold the cylinder head on and when I got to the last one (front right shown in the picture) the inside rounded out. As you can see from the picture its pretty close to the side of the engine so nothing can fit around the outside of it. I tried using a star-head to get a little more grab on the inside of the bolt head but no luck. I'm trying to figure out what my options are before I make anything worse. I've been told I could cut the bolt head off, but if I do wont the threads inside still be holding the cylinder head down?? Maybe a stupid question, since from looking on the oem parts finder it looks like the threads dont start until their into that bottom part of the engine. I've also head of tack welding a bolt on top to remove it, but not sure how hard thatd be to do with such little space. Are there any other tools or tricks to getting this thing out before resorting to those last ditch efforts?
  15. Hey guys, Quick question, can't find the answer anywhere in the Haynes or online. Is this linkage bolt meant to be done up flush or is it meant to have a bit of a gap? I failed my MOT due to this and it's a pain in the ass to even get my hand in there and tighten it at all! With some Vice Grips and a wrench on the other side I've made some progress but it's pretty damn tight, I can't see it coming off anytime soon or getting much tighter! If it is meant to be solidly tight, how the in the holy mother of whatever can you do it? Cheers!
  16. Hey guys, I'm struggling to find the part number for this bolt online. The diagrams on Babbitt 's haven't been too helpful. It's on the clutch side of the crank case cover of a 2002 yz250f right where the coolant enters the case I believe. The photo attached below shows the bolt circled on red. I'm replacing it because for some reason it's been corroded. Thanks! It's one of the longer bolts...maybe about 3 inches in length?
  17. Today I fixed my stripped oil bolt hole on my 2001 rm125. I tried using pliers to break the tab off, but the tab fell out of the pliers somehow and is now in my transmission area. I tried using a magnetic stick through the oil hole but couldn’t get the tab out. What can I do besides split the cases?
  18. Is bolt #19 in the image left hand thread? It does not wanting to come free at all. I don't have air tools.
  19. So I ordered new clutch plates and springs for my 1986 Kx 80 and today I tried to change them. The clutch cover came off fine, however the bolt in the centre of the clutch WILL NOT BUDGE. I've tried ratchets, torque bars, and multiple impacts. The Bolt either doesn't move or the impact jumps off the head of the bolt, I need any suggestions or help. I will leave a picture of the manual page about the clutch if that helps you guys understand, thanks.
  20. Just wondering if anyone knows the thread pattern on the clutch nut For my 2004 rmz250 is it right or left to unscrew it! Thanks
  21. Help required. I have just found a mystery bolt mixed in with the gunk under the starter motor on my DRZ400e. It was during a bit of a strip down to replace the clutch release shaft oil seal. I had previously moved the starter motor back for access to the cover plate screw. It has what looks like a yellow plastic insert or maybe paint on the head end. It possibly took a hex head but that looks rounded off now. I do not know where it came from. Please can anyone identify it? I have included images to help.

    I was an idiot in trying to get the oil bolt out to drain. In doing so, it led to a crack. I need help in what to do to repair, and the cost. The bolt clearly won't stay, as oil keeps dripping out. I know I'm an idiot so you don't need to tell me again.
  23. I was warming up my bike for an evening ride and came back out to see coolant leaking from the bolt (pictured) The previous bike owner and myself bled the cooling system and put new coolant in approx a week ago. After further inspection the bolt does not seem to actually tighten and has a small amount of play. Is this a stripped screw? Or am I about to find out this is a costly repair?
  24. Help! I had to remove the left side transmission case cover to retrieve a valve shim that had fallen down the side of the engine. When I was putting it back on I noticed two of the bolts wouldn' tighten all the way down. One was the short bolt that connect the oil filter cap to the case/cover and the other was a longer bolt that connects the cover to the transmission. Is there any alternate besides refilling a hole? Is this something I can use loctite on?
