  2. To those of you who ride both during summer and winter, how often and which jets do you have to adjust? Let's say you get the jetting bang on during the summer at 30 degrees. How much of a temperature difference is enough to make you re-jet? And if there's a big change in temperature (let's say you want to ride at 0 degrees during the winter, same altitude), which jets do you change? Is it enough to just change the main jet and adjust the air screw, or do you change the main jet, pilot jet and the needle (or the position)? I want to hear from those who have personal experience, concrete examples with jet sizes would be nice. I've read many tutorials on jetting, but most of them just tell you how to adjust the jetting right now, not the things I mentioned.
  3. Hello I am storing my recently bought 2003 yz125 for my first winter ever of owning a dirt bike. I looked at some videos and articles to know how to store a motorcycle in winter for the best survivability of the bike and I saw that some people suggest to spray some fogging oil in the air intake directly while runing the engine OR put a teaspoon of engine oil in the spark plug hole and crank the kickstart a bit to coat the inside of the cylinder with oil so it dosen't rust and all. Is this really necessary? I was thinking because my bike is a two stroke, and it ran with a 32:1 yamalube mix it should have already got its fair share of oil in the cylinder right? Also, is using a stand high enough so the wheels don't touch the ground really an important thing? People say its gonna mess with the suspension and flaten the tires otherwise, is that really something that could happen? I use a standard triangle stand but I go mess with the bike at least once a week so is this really going to be a thing for me? Thanks in advance. If ever you have good tips for winter storage let me know, I am all ears.
  4. The start of the budget build on my 2017 SSR 125!
  5. Hello all! I winter-commute cross-town in my city; Uppsala, Sweden. Our city loves salting the roads in the winter. So much so that the chain and sprockets on my winter-commuter basically needs a bi-yearly replacement. It's either that, or face a chain sandwiched in three layers around the front-sprocket, much like what happened this year in early spring at rush-hour... No amount of cleaning and oiling the chain helps unfortunately. Besides, a daily wash with kerosene and re-oiling is just not practical when the thermometer shows -15 centrigrades... Flushing the chain with water daily to get rid of the salt, is obviously not a solution in winter for physical reasons (the whole effing bike freezes in an icy armour...). Replacing chains and sprockets bi-yearly is a cost that runs up fast, so even if a stainless-steel chain would be more expensive to buy, I'm thinking it'd still be cheaper in the long run if I could extend the replacement with a year or rather two. However, have you ever heard of stainless steel motorcycle chains? Or are they as rare as the fabled unicorns? Generic rusty motorcycle chain from https://pixabay.com/p-555162/?no_redirect. PS. This is no troll posting. It's a real problem for me. DS.
  6. It is cold cold COLD. I needed to do something so I studied my manual and made one change. N8RW, everything else is my warm weather set up even the air screw and clip position. I've been running it from 0 deg. F up to about 14 deg. F in the video below and it runs just like it does in warm weather. Even the burble or whatever is the same! It feels really good, curious what you guys think. Try not to laugh at the carhart riding gear and the empty rain-x jugs! they work.

    2 Stroke Winter Jetting

    Just bought a 2007 YZ250, my first 2 stroke. Want to stud the tires and ride it through the winter. Elevation is about 300m above sea level. Temperature ranges 0 to -20 degrees Celcius. What should I jet it at for these temperatures? Do I change needle position also? Not sure what current jetting is, oil ratio is 32:1 and tons of spooge out the exhaust pipe. Thanks!
  8. Okay so I absolutely hate taking my carb off to jet it, especially in the winter when I may only ride it once or twice when there isn't enough snow for the sleds. What if instead of jetting for the winter, I just restrict the air box in order to counteract the increased density of the air and lean condition by idk duct taping a side or a half shut? Seems like it should work right?
