    clicking sound on crf150r 2014

  2. All - I'm having a hard time finding a stator and flywheel for a project 1998 RM 125 that I am working on. I found a complete but it's for a 1994 model - any idea if it will work? More generally, how can I figure out if parts from a different year will work on my bike? Thanks! Chris
  3. dropped the bike doing a dirt donut, Pretty sure I broke a pin on the change drum /gear holder star thing (and 1 week from my Friday the 13th DMV test that I need this bike for) but found a pin in the oil pan when I was trying removing the gear changer face plate. couldn't remove the plate because I realized you need to get the chain and sprocket out of the way since I don't have tools for either of those things I was wondering if I could get away with EITHER removing the sprocket OR the chain ...to save money. if not I guess ill just have to buy $400 impact wrench + a $200 master link revet tool.

    dr 2000 dr engine rattle

    Hey everyone. I've just started to ride my dr650 again after about a 6 month break. As I was taking it down a back road I started to hear a rattle coming from the left side of the bike. At first I could only hear it in 1st gear, after I got back to the main road I could hear it in the lower gears. Where there wasn't a whole lot of noise hiding it. It doesn't do it on smooth roads, and it doesn't do it while idling. At first I thought it might be my home made foot pegs. Alas it still did it even as I was holding them still. Also on the left side the engine is getting very hot fairly quickly. I'm currently waiting for the engine to cool off to knock things aroubd and see if i can find something loose. In the meantime I've been looking up the symptoms and some posts mention the heat shield, but since it isn't rev specific I don't think that's it. Any ideas anyone?
  5. So I am rebuilding my 1984 xr200r dirt bike, but it has an xl185 engine on it, which i have a 1984 xr200r engine which needs some work done, like new cam chain. I found out that the xr250 RFVC and xr200 RFVC in 1984 shared the same frame and I am putting the 250 engine in the bike however it is not running and I would rather not spend too much on parts, I found a guy selling a bunch of parts from an xl250 and I was wondering if I could use parts from that for the xr250 engine? Is there a big difference between the two? the xl and xr engines are both rfvc
  6. I picked up a yz250f for a pretty good deal. All that was wrong was a bog off idle. I thought easy fix just need clean the carb and change some jets, not knowing what I was getting myself into aka the infamous bog that all these damn 250fs have. My current hypothesis on why it isn't working, the accelerator pump does not seem to be squirting any fuel at all. Today I cleaned the shit out of the acc pump blowing carb cleaner and air through all the passage ways, and leak jet. Both the o rings, and diaphragm are in great condition. Still no squirt. The bike came with a boyeson quick shot, and I'm thinking about upgrading to the quick shot 3 just to get rid of the hassle of changing out leak jets, which I am still not convinced is the problem as the leak jet is stock. I tried the o ring mod but since my acc pump isn't squirting it did absolutely nothing. If anyone has any suggestions or fixes to my problem it would be greatly appreciated. Dean
  7. hey guys ive got an 1993-95 rmx 250 and i was wondering if anyone could help on locating an air leak my bike had previously running rich fouling a lot of plugs. during one ride it started to not return to normal idle speed and had a high rpms would this be the crank seals on both sides if anyone could tell me some symptoms or ways of finding a leak that be great cheers

    Low Compression 4-stroke

    So I got an xl185 (4 stroke Honda) which I bought in the summer. Bike had a very poor electrical job and the wrong cdi. It used to start up first to third kick. Now it doesn't. I was playing around on it today for a good hour trying to get it started and once I did, It osunded like there was a rattling/clanking in the engine head. My mechanic said that the bike had low compression and needed the new CDI (As I took it to him when is wasn't running). I read an article by a guy called the motorcycle mechanic saying that it could be one of 3 things and I could test it with oil in the chamber, and seeing if the compression changes. Is the sound caused by low compression? Would it be okay to leave it if I am selling the bike? Also It is harder to kick when gas and choke is on rather than when it is not. UPDATE: Bike sounded fine a few months ago and kicked about the same (Had some resistance)
  9. Hi guys! I own a DRZ400s and have a question about taking a different approach to the standard leaky petcock Fix. So, I just ordered the fix a lot of people recommended on here for the leaky stock petcock: The Petcock off of a Yamaha Raptor. I did this after looking for other vacuum petcocks and not finding good alternatives. However, I found a part made by Pingel, and was wondering if it would work in conjunction with the Yamaha Raptor petcock, in order to give me the perks of the Suzuki Vacuum Petcock, without it's shoddy craftsmanship and limited life. Could one of you guys help me out, and tell me if this would work? Do I just place the Pingel Inline Vacuum Valve on the fuel line between the Raptor Petcock and the Carb? Or does the Pingel Valve work as a petcock all on it's own? Thanks guys. Besides hitting the dirt often, I am trying to use my DRZ to zip around Los Angeles and make deliveries with postmates/grubhub/etc, so I would not like have to shut off the manual petcock every time I hop on/off the bike. Thanks again guys!
  10. I have a 2008 Yz250f used so I changed the coolant and went with engine Ice and now my bike is overheating. I realized though as I drained out the engine ice coolant that it came out without a chugging affect even though I had the cap on. This is not right am I correct? could this be causing my bike to overheat or is it something greater?

    Oil smells faintly like gas

    I bought my DRZ new in April and have since accumulated 1,000 miles and use it to commute to work (I live 5 city miles away). I was starting to remove the air filter to begin the 3x3 mod and the filter was sticky and smelt like gas. I did some digging around the forum and found out there could be two reasons for this. The petcock is leaky or I left my carb on Prime for some time and the gas flowed backwards. I'm pretty sure it's the second one as I remember one occasion where I left it on Prime for a few hours (my first carbureted anything). I currently have a cup under the petcock and will see if anything leaks out of it, but I am doubtful that is the problem. So I'm looking for some advice on what to do now. I've changed the oil twice already, so it's only been 500 miles or so since the last change, so any gas in the oil is since then. And the oil just faintly smells like gas. It took a few attempts to smell anything like gas. Should I just change the oil, call it good, not do the 3x3 rejet and use the warranty if needed? Or could this be something much bigger and I should go back to the dealer?
  12. Does anyone where I can get my Tech 10 boots resoled in the Charlotte area? I know I can send them to one of the places online that repairs them and sends them back but I would prefer to find a local shop. Any help would be great.
  13. Hi, First time poster here. About a month ago I purchased a used 2002 DR-Z 400 S for an undisclosed amount. Was ridding it home ~300 miles and made it ~40 short of home. Flywheel starter clutch's bolts (X6) sheared leaving me stranded and left the stater mangled. Fast forward to now ~1 month later. Still haven't been able to take her for a spin despite devoting most my afternoons to her. When trying to start her I would just get occasional backfires, and finally with a different stater a brief start (maybe 5 seconds) on two occasions, now I'm getting nothing, just turning over. So far I'v: -Checked valve clearance (at tdc) all in spec. -Replaced stater twice, once with Chinese crap (just backfires), and now on rick's stater (2 brief starts) -Thorough cleaning of carb (fcr 39 mx) -Tested coil, wire, boot, and plug -Battery is good -Engine turns over -Oil was acceptable -Clean gas (stabilized) 93 oct -Comp test......60 PSI <--- ??? (seller may have vaguely mentioned its a 410?)(crap aftermarket piston/sleeving?) My questions: What could cause the bolts to shear?? It was ridding fine until I stopped for gas and had no starter motor flywheel engagement, why is it now not starting with engagement? If the comp is really that low can that be the cause of my failure to start, and really what gives here? I have yet to test the grounds, where do I check and is it worth testing given my situation? Recommendations, questions, ideas? Will post pics on request. Thanks all -Kindill
  14. Hi, This is the 2nd time happening to me in the few days of riding I've gotten since getting this bike. Took me almost a month of afternoons and weekends to get it running. All six bolts holding the flywheel the the starter clutch shear causing catastrophic stater destruction and inability of the starting motor to engage the flywheel. What is the cause of these nuts shearing?? Both times I had it wot and slowed down using mostly engine brake. You would think Suzuki would have chosen a grade nut that can cope with the forces involved. (calls for 8.8 in book) Which leads me to believe something else may be at work here. All these nuts do are hold the starter clutch to the flywheel. I see lots of people fixing the sheared nuts but not addressing the root cause. Well I'd love to hear some input as I know I cant be the only one having these problems. Thanks, Kindill
  15. I've got a leaking radiator hose on my 1997 Honda CR125R. Could I just swap it out for a piece of garden hose and continue riding for a few hours? My bike isn't here right now, so does anyone know the typical ID of those hoses? I figure the coolant gets to about 200 degrees F, so would a garden hose stand up to those temps?
