  1. Can any recommend a good ATV shop in the San Diego Area? My wife's LTZ400 is making a knocking noise in 2nd gear only. I fear a gear tooth got busted off when she popped it into second gear at high speed. Thanks
  2. Hi one and all, Do any of you do, or ever do, plastic restoration? In the process of doing a resto on a 1981 Yamaha IT 250 and the plastics are hell to come by. Soooo, I decided to restore them. Here are some samples of before and after. Tail light lens was restored as well. If anyone here does this, post them up. If you want to know what I did, then pm me as it would be too long to post here.

    New exhaust pipe repair tool

    https://www.hydra-force.co.uk/product/hydraforce-exhaust-blow-out-kit/ A friend just bought this. Anyone try this yet?? Screwed up and started another double thread again.. sorry
  4. 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

    Repairing bent radiators?!

    So I’m doing some fixing on my 2001 CR 250 R. I’m going through all the issues on the off-season trying to freshen up the bike for this spring. I have watched multiple videos of people repairing radiators that were pretty bent up. Mine is slightly worse than any I’ve seen repaired, it does not leak and does not overheat (haven’t rode it in the blazing summer heat but 60-70 degrees it was fine) I guess I’m wondering has anyone repaired a crinkled up radiator successfully and did it work with no leaks or is repairing something this dented up going to have to be took to a shop? I’m basically just wanting to get it as good as possible without having to put more money in it or take it to a shop and or replace them which is inevitably going to need to be done at some point. thanks
  6. hello all please feel free to comment, any help appreciated! photos : https://photos.app.goo.gl/gWmBoGzpRj0SG1No2 I just purchased a 2004 honda XR400R. I am located in Hungary which is nearly same weather conditions like Great Britain, 4 seasons, warm-hot summers up to 36 degree Celsius, cold winters up to minus 10 degree Celsius... so you can figure. My goal is to use it in the woods, I would like to give something to the bike (average level of restoration) but I would like to have a fun factor and trouble free in return. I am 183 centimetres and 95 kilos guy... The bike was more than 10 years in pretty good shape and serviced, then a guy purchased it who did a few wear and "damage" to the bike, (luckily? he used it mainly on concrete roads, not in forest or like that.) the good: the engine was never opened, the screw-s are original, no wear mark on the screws, ALL the engine gasket-s look like factory. It starts by kick on first-second attempt cold or hot. in hot motor situations, I have to clear the flooded petrol by kicking + decompressor + ignition off, then it starts nicely. it is 15/45 now, it is TOO MUCH of torque for my taste now, it has PRETTY GOOD when not HUGE torque and power all over the range and speeds, but: main problems are: HUGE petrol consumption, about 9,3 litres on a 80 km soft trip trough woods. (carb and fuel cock are dripping, seal and gasket set on the way to repair) or do I have a worn cylinder/piston? :-( how to figure out? measure compression? what value is okay? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carburetor-Carb-Complete-Master-Repair-Rebuild-Kit-Honda-XR400R-96-04/322300058028?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 http://www.ebay.com/itm/XR650R-XR-650R-XR-250R-XR-400R-Honda-NOS-XR-650-Fuel-Petcock-Valve/171885885016?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 very bad condition of bearings in the front steering and rear swingarm/suspension (both suspensions also set very badly, nearly none suspension, all settings on LOW or random), roar-ing sound from the bearings of the swingarm/suspension, knocking movement of the steering http://www.ebay.com/itm/Moose-Racing-Motorcycle-Steering-Stem-Bearing-Kit-22-1021-0410-0029/261382677475?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 knocking sound on idle, I "think" the sound comes NOT from the top area (NOT from under the gas tank, where a valve clearence sound would be assumed) but from the bottom, like the area of the generator.. where your right foot is at the pedals. will investigate this.

    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?

    What's In My Cylinder?

    Hello great people of thumper talk. Well I've been having some problems with my old 2002 YZ250F. I was riding a few days ago when my bike just sputtered to a stop almost like it ran out of gas. Well gas was not the problem and I couldn't get her to run she would only fire for a second then die. I found that one of my TPS wires snapped, so I figured the reason it wasn't running was because of that wire. After soldering it back together it was still doing the same thing, so I just left it for the night. When I came back the next day whilst kicking it over I noticed all of a sudden the kicker stopped. the motor was seized. I tried turning the crankshaft at the flywheel and it would not budge forward at all but it would turn backwards or clockwise, so from here I figure I'll start taking the bike apart and figure out whats locking it up. Once I removed the cylinder head I was at a surprise when I saw this relatively large piece of brass sitting on top of my piston. I was thinking where in the hell did that come from. It was getting too late for me to go any further tonight, so I figured I would post a picture on here to see if anyone can tell me what they think this piece may go to. Is it something in the crank maybe up by the valves, from the carburetor I have no idea. It just amazes me that the piece is so intact since it was sitting on top of my piston. Also after that I did try turning the crank again, and it did turn but it felt horrible. It was very clunky and it sounded like shit might be grinding in there so I stopped. Well thanks for taking a look and if you have any insight as to where that piece might have come from please let me know. Other than that I'll be breakin her down further tomorrow.
  9. Hey guys - I got a pretty good deal on a used 98 RM125 but when I pulled the cylinder to inspect, I saw a crack. When I asked the seller about it, he said he's been riding with that crack for over a year with no issues. "He says" that his mechanic told him it was not worth getting the cylinder honed / plated given the cost. What are your thoughts? I am thinking it needs to be repaired but wanted some additional opinions from experienced riders and / or mechanics. thanks for your help! Chris
  10. Any recommendations for Pitster Pro repair somewhat near Tulsa, Oklahoma?
  11. I have a 2003 dr200se. Tonight I was riding back from work on the freeway, as I was accelerating going probably 55ish I heard a weird banging noise and thought it was my stuff strapped to the back. But as I pulled over I smelled smoke and when I got off smoke was coming out of the exhaust like something was burning inside. Once it stopped smoking after like 5 or 10 minutes I tried to start it but the starter made a weird half trying noise. As I pushed it home I tried starting it periodically but always the same until eventually nothing at all, but that's probably just the battery. I know very little about bikes but I feel like it's gotta be pretty bad since the knocking and burning and it was running great before that moment. I cleaned and rebuilt the carb a few months ago after it wasn't getting fuel. I don't know if I could have screwed something up then but I ride it everyday and that was over 3 months ago. The bike died on my way home tonight. Anyone know what caused this, I couldn't find anything matching this Googleing.
  12. Bought new in 1997, my Suzuki DR650 motorcycle in 2014, with 20500 Km on the clock experienced unpredictable catastrophic 3 rd gear disintegration. Eventually in December 2016 the Small Claims Court of South Africa, with Suzuki Auto South Africa defending,the court awarded me my damages claim for the repair of my Suzuki motorcycle.

  13. 1997 Honda Xr650L. I was changing out my turn signals. After each one I tested the turn signal...all good up till the 3rd turn signal. After the 4th and final turn signal was changed out everything is dead except my headlight. Brake light, turn signals, horn, dash indicators lights (except for headlight indicator) and rear light are dead. I check my fuses and all are good in the fuse area by the battery. Is there another fuse I’m missing? everything was working perfectly just before. I had a turn signal broken (bulbs are OEM....I do not have LEDs) and was trying to repair and change them all to the same style. I ordered pen replacement signals.

    Absolutely stumped

    Flustered. I picked up a yz250 yesterday to mix up my riding. (I ride a ltr450) But pulled it out from a shed where he said it's been resting for a month. Started up first kick. Test rode it. Ride ok.. felt a bit slow but I had just been riding my rocket. Bought it and brought it home. It had almost no fuel. Mixed up some fuel 32:1 and filled the tank about half way. Go out to rip and the bike does after about 5 mins. Push it in the garage and can't get it to start. Pull the choke up and it starts. But it's smoking like crazy. Out the PVV and from the head pipe (gasket is bad) and would only rub on choke. Ok, maybe it didn't like that oil...... drain the tank. Make a new premix with different oil. Run the fuel put of the carb and fuel up again Only starts with choke still got it to run without choke on. Go rip for a bit and I feel it bogging in lower rpms. Ride back to garage and it dies (woo didn't have to push it back this time at least) Figure the carb could have possibly been bummed up if the premix was bad from that first batch. Took the carb out and cleaned it, as well as the a new plug in. Once again would only run on choke. Pull the plug. It's wet. Clean the plug up and put it back in. Now the bike isn't starting at all. Good compression Good spark Wtf am I missing here?
  16. 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.
  17. Hello, Situation: A yz125 has fallen into my lap. I don't know anything about its history, and guess it to be 2000-2001ish. It has been sitting outside for a few years, and hasn't been ridden in at least that long. It looks to be in pretty rough shape (rust on the frame, missing a kickstarter, brakes appear disconnected, busted exhaust etc.). I grew up riding dirt bikes (4 strokes) but have limited mechanical background (no background with 2 strokes). I am considering attempting to restore this bike to rideable condition as a pet project. Questions: Am I in over my head? Is this an impossible task for someone who has never worked on a 2 stroke? Any suggestions/tips on where to start? Any guesstimates on total cost and/or hours required (I realize this question is impossible to accurately answer - just looking for a rough estimate)? Any input is greatly appreciated.

    Oil/coolant mix in crankcase

    Hello, So my buddy got a cheap broken down project bike (2001 Yamaha YZ 125) and we originally found that the piston had a hole on its side, and the side of the cylinder was all scratched up. We sent the cylinder to get nikasiled, got a new piston and head gasket and drained all fluids. We found that the crankcase was full of this brown milky oily substance that will not drain. We determined it's probably coolant that mixed with the oil, but we have no idea how to properly get it out. We're thinking that maybe the drain is clogged somewhere, but liquids have drained before... Has anyone ever seen this? How did you deal with it?
  19. Hi people, I know very little on how to do what I want to do regards to putting together a 2nd hand ec 300 I'm making videos to entertain others and myself during the build Any help would be great in the weeks to come Here is the link to my 1st episode of the Gas Gas Ec 300 Build Series Enjoy https://youtu.be/aMTOXVhyikI
  20. I bought a non-running 2015 Crf450r from a guy who said that the local honda shop said it needed a new ECU. The bike has maybe 20 hours on it tops it is spotless. I changed the ECU and got nothing. Started to dig deeper and found out it had no compression. The nikasil (however it is spelled) had completely flaked off the upper third of the cylinder. Replaced the cylinder and put in a new piston still nothing. Swapped out the fuel tank in case the pump was bad, nothing. Checked all electrical connections and everything looks good. After a bunch of headache, finally got the bike to start by spraying starting fluid in the cylinder AND applying an external power source to the fuel pump. Once the bike starts up, it idles fine, revs fine, etc. However, it WILL NOT start without the external power source. Since finding this out, we have replaced the stator and tested all of the connections going to the ECU for a break or bad connection. Still nothing without the power source and starting fluid at the beginning. I am lost at this point as far as where to look next. Any suggestions or tips would be very much appreciated.

    DRZ400S VS DRZ400SM

    Now that I am rebuilding my 2001 DRZ400S due to a crash.. I want to be sure that when it happens again the bike will not be completely totaled. I cannot find any axle sliders for it because it does not have hollow axles. The only thing I have been able to find are engine guards that mount to the frame so I will for sure be getting those. So I just have questions on how to get axle sliders mounted on my bike, and I also will probably be getting a handbrake sometime in the near future. Would I be better off just swapping to an SM swingarm? I wish there was a document listing all the spec differences between the SM and S models. Any help would be great. Best regards.
  22. Ran engine without oil, it has a knock and is leaking from the upper head. I need to have it looked at soon and can't afford dealership prices.
  23. I bought a used 2003 rm125 recently. It seemed fine, ran fine until I went into powerband and would stall. I replaced the spark plug, it started once and nowit won't start. idk if its because it just became colder in my state, ct. I dont know whats wrong with it can anyone help?

    Think this pipe is repairable?

    What do you guys think? would a pipe repair shop attempt to fix this or am I better off buying a new gnarly pipe? Thank you for any replies.

    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)
