  1. Hello all! New to TT and the dirtbiking world. Just recently purchased a 2014 klx250s at altitude (5000 feet). I almost immediately moved down to 2200 feet in the desert. I don't know what pilot and main jets are currently installed but I can assume it needs to change as the bike is probably running really lean. If anyone has recommendations for what jets to use and other settings to change before I start taking things apart would be gladly appreciated! I don't have a very permanent garage situation so every tune up/part replacement I do I try to make a one day job. I brought the bike with a FMF Q4 Muffler and Power Bomb Header Pipe. Thanks!
  2. Hello friends, Just thought I'd share a short summary video of a 154-mile adventure ride my buddy and I did last week. Northeastern AZ has an unbelievable amount of rural trail/road to explore. My KLX300R averaged 71.5 MPG on this ride.
  3. I know, I know...it's not fair, but sometimes you gotta remind your boys who's the boss. Plus, racing is just plain fun. Had a blast out with my boys riding today. The bikes in the video are a 2007 Honda CRF70F, and a 2002 Kawasaki KLX300R.

    DRZ110 running rich

    Hi all, I have a completely stock 2005 Suzuki drz110 (same thing as a klx110) and it is running way to rich. It wont idle at all but will hang before it dies. It puffs a little bit of black smoke too. It always starts 1st kick and has decent power. Jets are stock at 35 pilot and 80 main. playing with the idle and fuel screws don`t do anything. Spark plug is black but it doesn't foul plugs. checked all around engine for air leaks with carb and choke cleaner and have found none. Air filter is clean and valves were just adjusted. Im out of things to try. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Luke
  5. Don't stop me now [WhereIsWiljen - Join the 2 wheeled Madventure] Hi there thumpertalk followers, I wanted to share with you all my adventure I did last year. I bought a KLX 150 (2015 model) in Malaysia and rode it all the way overland to the Netherlands. It took me less than 10 months and I went through 25 countries, solely overland traveling. All in all, it was a Madventure 35.000km on a standard KLX 150 with some panniers for my luggage. I will post more in this topic soon, but above you see a short video with highlights from south east asia! As you can see it opens a playlist from my youtube channel, you can switch to the episodes as well. Cheers, WhereIsWiljen You can find my facebook channel by searching on WhereisWiljen.
  6. So I bought a 2004 drz110. Test drive it rode mint had a decent first gear low end bog when I really got on it but it sat for a few years so I assumed a little general maintenance(clean carb oil change new spark plug clean air filter) would fix it. First thing I did though is install the fmf pipe that I bought it with the guy never installed it. Other than that bike is 100% stock. So I cleaned the carb and did an oil and filter change used Kawasaki 10w40 oil and k&n KN-112 oil filter. So I fired it up and it is 1 kick fire up almost every time not a big problem. But I noticed at half throttle it sputters in neutral and first didn't really notice it in second. Also seemed to be smoking a little. I got rid of the low end bog it seems after cleaning the carb but this new problem came up. I adjusted the air screw and reset it to closed and opened 1 1/4 turns like the manual says because whoever messed with it before me had it at 2 1/2 turns out. I thought that would fix it but it still has the same sputter. If I open the throttle up then just flat out let it go it'll stall. I haven't replaced the spark plug yet was going to do it tonight. But after reading around the forum I'm having trouble finding an answer that'll help with my specific problem. Most things say it's jetting because of a the new exhaust but I know plenty of people who run stock klx or ttr with an fmf or aftermarket pipe with no problems. From what I'm reading it sounds like maybe it could be a main main problem like it's clogged or not the right one because it means it's running too rich. I didn't remove the main jet when I cleaned the carb so I could believe that it might still be dirty. My plan is the check the spark plug and put a new one in and if I'm still having the sputter to pile the jets and the carb and hit them with some carb cleaner and see if that works. Just wanted some opinions of if I'm going about it right or if I'm totally wrong and there's something else I'm not thinking of wrong with the bike.

    Buying advice

    Hey all, New to this forum because it seems like one of the best. little backround, I grew up trail riding and raced mx a bit with my cr80 (some of my favorite childhood memories)... hiatus for a number of years besides rippin around at the cabin, had an R6 for a 2 or 3 years and then I've been traveling for 4 years.... planning to settle back down in Mn for spring summer falls and want a bike to get around and tear up as much dirt as possible as I explore. goal is to enter some hare scrambles next year to start getting back into racing a bit but till then it will be my way to get around and my bike to train. I am probably looking for the impossile and so my heads spinning with all this information... but something around the 400cc seems like a good size bike but pretty much no options on cl at the moment. 250cc would be a blast and great to get back to dirt but when I cruz to see family and friend in other states, will I hate my life after an hour on the highway? I'm drawn to the xr650L with the mods and available parts but is it going to be a monstrous challenge to bring back and hone in my skills with a 350lbs bike? I'm 6'1" 175 lbs and train 3 days a week rock climbing, so I am in good health and great shape so I feel up to the challenge but maybe someone similar could share their experience/expertise? Massive failure jumping to a brh or were you happy to have something to grow into? budget is flexible but looking to spend 1-3k on something ready to go, reliable, street legal, and can hang off road. I'm looking to beat it up quite a bit so dont mind something older if it can hang. Pretty much sold on the Xr650L but thought this would be a good place to check myself before I wreck myself... literally... 2003 xr650l $2400 (is 20.5k miles too high??....they seem to run forever) I like that some of the mods I want are done already and it seems like a reasonable price if the splines on the countershaft sprocket are in decent shape? figure when the motor needs major work done on it bore it out and do some of the other more intrusive mods? 2007 xr650l $3300 extra parts and some mods, newer, lower miles crf230L $3000- fun size, but its it going to be a slug without spending a bunch more on mods? Am I going to want something bigger soon after? 03 KTM 625 SXC - $3300 seems like a solid option as well...??? Thoughts? comments? Thanks all!

    NEED KLX250 help

    I went and bought a klx250 1995 yesterday. I showed up to the guys house and the bike ran like a top. I started it myself and the motor was bone cold and it was 29 degrees outside. I bought it and brought it home and it wont start for nothing. Tried new gas, new spark plug, drained the carb of old gas. I have spark I checked, compression, and i am getting fuel. We are stumped. The bike just will not start for anything. It just ran at the guys house. I started it multiple times while I was there. It fired up almost everytime cold.
  11. Hello friends, It's so nice to have finally found a riding buddy who's as interested as I am. We've been doing these weekly 5am rides, and this past week I lead the way while looking for elk and elk sign. We had a fun ride. Here's a video with a few of the highlights from the ride:
  12. Hello friends, I have seen some discussion about DRZ400 (DRZ400S, etc) vs whatever other bike, when it comes to power. My riding buddy and I threw down some good old drag races this morning on the way back home after some adventure in the forest. I own/ride a 2002 KLX300R. We ran two heats, one on gravel, then one one asphalt. Who do you think won? See below:
  13. Hello friends, bought an ‘03 300R yesterday. Love it, but it has a squeaky odometer. Any suggestions for a fix?

    Drz400 Cylinder head fitment

    First i want to thank everyone for their input into the vast amount of knowledge that can be found on this site. It makes life a bit easier and interesting for people like me. MY question is about fitting a ltz400(or klx400)cylinder head onto a drz400. I've searched the forum quite a bit and need to be sure a couple of things. 1. I've read that the ltz400 head is a direct fit for the drz but i would need to plug the manual decomp if i'm putting the cylinder head on a drz400s model. How exactly is this done?I'm assuming the ltz400 head has manual decomp 2.If i were to buy a ltz400 head to put onto a drz400s, would it make a difference whether i bought the assembly parts (cams,valves,shims,springs,etc) for the drz or for the ltz? 3.I've read that the klx400 head is a direct fit also. Is there a specific year klx400 that only fits? Thanks in advance for the responses!
  15. Howdy friends, This past Saturday I rode solo from 5:20am - 7:20am out into the nearby forest. There is so much open space out here in NE Arizona that riding opportunities and new trails are endless. This loop, including new trail, was a total of 34.4 miles. Here's a small video summary of my ride. Of interest: 1 dead cow, 5 antelope in three separate locations, 20+ jackrabbits, some very secluded private property, a blossoming cactus, a section of cross-country travel
  16. Recently picked up a 2012 klx250s. Bike was in need of a carb tune. I re jetted and picked up a easy access fuel air screw. The stock one was so wedged up into the carb that it Would not come loose. Screwdriver slipped and snapped off the housing around the fuel air screw. Am I screwed (no pun intended) do I need to just replace the entire carb now? if anyone has better know how or where i can order the correct parts id be so appreciative.

    KLX 650 R Triple Clamps

    Hey Thumpers, I am swapping forks and need to know what triple clamps / tripple trees will also fit the 93-96 KLX650r forks. Through some research it looks like KLX300 and pre 09 KLX250 clamps will also fit. But given the ambiguous name of these parts (triple/tripple trees/clamps) doing a search to get good info is difficult. And many of the clamps I am finding for sale are rather expensive so just want to make sure I am getting the right part before pulling the trigger. Thanks for your help!
  18. Hello everyone, my 1994 KLX650 stopped working a week ago: the alternator broke, no spark. I was calling some scrapyards, and one of them said one from a KLR650 from the same era should fit. Does anyone know whether this is true? Thanks in advance! Added a picture of it, absolutely in love with it! Hope I can get it back on the road soon.
  19. Hello friends, This past weekend I took my first ride on my recently-acquired KLX300R. I had a great time, so far I love the bike. Here's a short video summary of my ride out to the woods to retrieve a camera.
  20. Hello friends, Our 4th of July 5am ride was a blast, and on the way back I was hauling because I had to make it back to work on time:

    Transmission Oil

    My manual says to run oil 10w-30 or 10w-40. What brand makes the best clutch oil for a two stroke? What oil do you guys and girls run in your Two stroke dirt bikes? any particular ones to stay away from? Also, semi synthetic, full synthetic, or non synthetic?
  22. My 2004 klx 125 flooded the bottom and with gas so I went and rebuilt the petcock and carburetor with new float assembly etc. when I put it back together and tried to drive it sometimes the bike would have fire and sometimes it would not. When it would fire and run after a minute it started to choke out and die like something with erratic spark. If the RPMs were kept high enough it will still run but very badly and I attribute that due to the amount of rotations being a enough to keep the engine running even though it is skipping some timing spark. Sometimes even cold it has no fire. When it does it runs like a brand new bike. It decides this completely at random and is definitely spark related, it backfires occasionally. All adjustments are setup properly. Something is failing. After the crankcase was flooded with gas and it ran for a little while before I noticed it coming out the crankcase vent tube into the airbox ......a mixture of gas and Oil until the entire bottom end was full. My question is whether or not running gas through the oil could have shorted the stator or pick up?? I know it's more likely that it overheated from lack of lubrication and one of the components were too hot, but what's the chances of it shorting out? I figure it's not a CDI since it comes and goes and a CDI will basically die and never come back. I'm trying to figure out what it is because it's an intermittent problem and it's making it harder to troubleshoot. When I have spark everything is correct when I do not have spark sometimes I get a good reading from everything and sometimes I don't get a reading at all
  23. Hello friends, For those curious about the stock gearing (with stock sprockets) on a Kawasaki KLX300R, I put together this short video. Also, I included the part 1 minute later where an antelope ran across my path. Look closely and you can see it.
