  1. My girlfriend and I just purchased two sr170tr bikes online. I put them both together, loctite bolts/screws with blue loctite, changed oil with 10w-40 non synthetic, oiled the air filter and filled them up with premium gas. My bike started after a couple kicks and is keeping idle/running fine. The second bike though has been extremely difficult to kick vs mine. It will occasionally kick but it stops/gets stuck so often you basically break your foot in the process. And when it does kick it has much more resistance in general. This is all based off of comparison with the working sr170tr. After many attempts to start the bike (checking spark plug, making sure wire connections are tight, and 100 difficult kicks) I noticed the manifold intake is cracked. Again this bike is new and never been started before so this was a major bummer... I have nearly zero experience with bikes and dont know how to go about this. Ive emailed the company that sent me the bikes about the broken manifold intake. But scratching my head about the difficult kick start issue. Will the broken intake have anything to do with the difficulty of kicking the engine? Thank you!
  2. My friend bought a brand new Yz450f and he said he started noticing a scratching sound coming from the front brake science day one. According to him, overtime his front brakes have gotten worse and worse. Currently the brake lever can almost touch the grips when you pull it making it feel "squishy" and it brakes pretty bad. I tried to help diagnose the problem but I don't know much about brakes. Any ideas of what it could be? Thanks in advance.
  3. I’m not into riding bikes but I’d like to be. I’m looking for a modestly priced bike to see if I like it. Apollo’s seem pretty cheap, so what’s the catch? Is it worth the money? Edit- I’m 5’3” and about 135 lbs if that matters.
  4. Will any newer plastics fit on my 2006 kx250f if so what year and what plastic is it ec front fender pic just cause
  5. Hello, Thumper Talk, I am a new rider, I just got my license 2 weeks ago and will be getting a bike within the next couple weeks. I have my eyes on a klr 650 but I haven't looked at it yet. My problem isn't with the bike it is with the gear, I will be using this bike for short commuting 5-10 min for work and longer 1hr+ treks, all street at first but I do hope to get off the road eventually, so I need to be able to get it all off with relative ease. I also live in Wisconsin so I need protection from cold, rain, sun, heat, and maybe snow if I dare to try, I would like to accomplish this with around 500$, which is a lot to ask but I do already have a helmet so that will help. I have the AFX FX-39 hi-vis urban camo. If it is absolutely worth it or a really good deal I will go over 500$. So basically what I need is boots, leg armor, upper body armor, and gloves. Some ideas I already had are the o'neal element for boots but they don't seem to have enough protection at the ankle, knee brace and hip armor while just rock denim but I don't think that would be a good idea for the highway, something like the fox titan for upper body with a jacket that can provide protection on the road but I thought that might just get complicated, along with a neck brace and I didn't know what to do for gloves. Obviously this is a lot but I couldn't find anyone that had already asked this before, Thanks.
  6. Had sorta ruined my back number plates during a hare scramble last year and i'm thinking about getting a whole new set of plastics and graphics. I was wondering if anyone has tried putting newer plastics on a 2007 kx250. My biggest issue is the front fender, I love the look of the new front fenders on the 250's and 450's. The only other parts is radiator shrouds because the stock ones quite ugly to but the back fender and number plates are fine. If anyone knows if any newer plastics will fit let me know, not scared to re drill some holes or make some small brackets if necessary, just curious, anything y'all know would be a big help.
  7. Great news! The 2019 YZ450Fx got the 2018 YZ450 treatment! New Frame Updated Suspension Bigger Tank (2.2 gallons) Lighter (lost 6 lbs wet even with larger tank) Keeps its wide ratio transmission I'm pretty excited about this bike. I love my '17 450FX and was hoping the 2019s would get updated. Honestly though, I had almost lost hope due to fuel capacity. The 2018 YZ received a smaller tank (1.6 gallons) and the largest tank IMS offers is 2.0 gallons. I took this to mean there was no room left for fuel with the new layout. Thankfully I was wrong! The new YZ450FX is coming stock with a 2.2 gallon tank. Also, the new bike lost some weight. It now weighs 256lb fully wet (or 242lb without fuel). Yamaha seems to be doing everything right with these new bikes. https://www.yamahamotorsports.com/cross-country/models/yz450fx

  9. Hello, I'm new to bikes, I just bought my first one. I'm getting used to it, but I noticed the fork seals were leaking slightly and appear to be weather cracked, so I ordered a rebuilt kit for the seals. It is an all balls fork seal kit, I read they are pretty good. However I have little experience working on bikes thus far, I was wondering if I would be able to tackle this by myself with the proper tools and some spare time. I am mechanicly inclined enough to learn, and understand what I'm doing so I'm confident but, I'm not sure if there is any difficult parts of the process. Also if anyone has any pointers as far as small things to keep an eye on, this bike runs really mint and starts up first few kicks every time and I'd really love to keep her that way! Thanks in advance guys and gals

  13. Hey, I’m looking around the market for a new bike and there are a lot of options that are appealing but I’m just getting ready to sell my WR450F and ride something a little lighter I was looking at the YZ450FX but then I decided I will also want to register it and I started looking at the te300i and it looked good. I’ve never ridden a 2 stroke before so does it take long to transition across or you just pick it up easily. Can someone tell me whether or not it’s a good trail bike for rocky hills and tight single trail. I do a lot of trail riding. Such as the Murphy’s creek trail ride and the Killarney trailride ect
  14. Just got rid of my wr450f after many years on it. Was very heavy. What’s better the TE300i or the YZ450FX for trail riding???

    rekluse clutch

    Hi all,i have a new in box Rekluse clutch its the first edition and it comes with the cable adjuster also new too .These things are pretty rare now and i am thinking i am not going to use it so i would like to sell it to someone who may use it i am thinking of selling my crf so it will be surplus to requirements. as i have stated new and unused ..
  16. I'm new to the bike. Is there an online manual for this 1989 KX250? Does it have a radiator? Lmao I really haven't had time to look at it. All I know is it's in my garage and the clutch plates need changed because the guy I bought it from was riding and heard a loud CLUNK and killed it at idle. He tried to open it up but broke the gasket and didn't have the tools to take apart the plates I guess.
  17. I have a 1980 xr80 that is starting to freeze up on me ................................. after being ridden for about a month with out a drop of oil. I have a spare bottom end (same year) but not a spare top end. My plan is to hopefully take the old top end and put it on my spare bottom. while I have it all torn apart is there any parts from a different model year that would be interchangeable? also is there OEM parts from a different year or bike that could be swapped on for a performance gain?
  18. Hey! New to forum and have quick question. I just started a 93 cr250 project and all the parts are original and some are a bit clapped out. The radiator needs to be replaced and I am wondering If the eBay radiators are worth it. Company names on ebay are, MSR Racing, Worley, GPI, and HR Racing etc. Are these radiators any good or am I stuck buying an expensive OEM unit? Should I buy a used OEM? No one really seems to make or carry them except the eBay stores. I also have a hard time trusting eBay purchases. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks -Peter
  19. Hello TT new here but I’ve been referring to these helpful forums for some time. Recently bought a 17 yz450 leftover nearing the end of last year. This is my first 450 and well first actual big boy bike other then a 125 ttr I had. I went with 450 due to my weight (6’2 270-285 depending on how much beer I’ve drank) and tho it was a very steep learning curve, the bike is an absolute tank and a blast to ride. I ride mainly in the woods and single track. The bike is naturally stiff but I do squat it. never bouncing off the tire, but I’m looking for suggestions on sag and fork rebound. Should I just click it as stiff as she can go? Also open for any good springs or parts recommendations and overall riding tips for a new big guy. Thanks a bunch and glad to be here ??
  20. hey all, im fairly new to riding and just kind of stumbled across thumper talk, i recently purchased a 1984 honda xr 500 and was wondering if anyone knew of any common problems or things to watch for. the bike was rebuilt and set in storage before i bought it so im not expecting any failures but im wondering where a guy could find parts for something this old. if anybody has some old pamphlets or knows where to find the owners manual too that would be awesome thanks.
  21. PLease checkout my first video, sub if you like it. It will get better. first time uploading
  22. Well I just sold my ATV and picked up a new 2017 250L. This is my second bike but first dual sport. Been riding ATV's the last 4 years on major trail systems here in Maine. Looking forward to learning and sharing on this site!
