    yamaha dt125 dirt bike project?

    I saw a motorbike online that I liked the look of...It was a Yamaha DT125 MK2 with racing reeds, handguards, ect (picture below). I am thinking about doing something similar to take around a dirt track. There aren't many, but there are a few cheap DT125's in my area. I am also on a very small budget so this may be an on going project over the next few months or so, depending on how cheap I can get the bike for. The bike will only be used every 2/3 weeks when I take it to a dirt track, so I don't want to do too much to it, or spend too much money any way. What are your thoughts on this project? Do you think I should go ahead and do it? I am roughly 5' 11" but only 110 lbs, so do you think this bike would be too big, or too heavy for me? I just liked the idea of turning a road legal bike in to a trail type bike! Thanks
  3. So i just rebuild my top end of my 2005 250F, i had 35 houres on my piston and cylinder so i decided to rebuild it. it ran perfectly before the rebuild, my timing is right, i have spark, en my sparkplug is a little wet so i have fuel... If i try to kick it it starts to run but after 2seconds it stops running. does anyone know what i have to do? thx Medard from belgium
  4. Hi , I'm new here and I just purchased a spoke tourque wrench kit "Excel (TWS-210ANS) 7-Piece Adjustable Spoke Torque Wrench Set" for my 2008 Yamaha YZF450, the front spokes are smaller than the 6 that came with the bike and the rear spokes are larger than the 7 that came with the bike (I bought it New) Does any one know what sizes the front and rear spoke nipples are? I can still stop my order and seek the correct size somewhere. I find it lame that they gave me the wrong spoke wrench. Thanks in advance, Brent
  5. I got a new to me 2001 yz 250 which has a healthy motor and jetted properly for my elevation. The problem I'm having is when I'm in gear riding and push in the clutch the rpms don't drop to idle but if I give it gas it doesn't slip and revs freely. I can start the bike in gear fine and looked at my clutch already which has plenty of life left and my clutch basket is in good condition to. I adjusted my clutch freeplay which was already in spec. It has aftermarket clutch lever and I maxed it out as far as it can go outwards but the rpms still wont drop to idle when im trying to coast in gear. Another weird thing is if I'm stopped in gear with clutch pulled in it is at idle speed. Any suggestions is appreciated because I don't know what else to check.

    1998/1996 yz250

    Hello I just recently bought my first dirt bike. It's a 1996 yz250 and I'm putting a 1998 yz250 top end on it. The power valve hit the piston and so I am haveing the top rebuilt. And I was wondering what I should grind off the valve? And also what are some other thing I should do to this bike. Thanks!
  7. Hey guys, thought i'd share this video i found the other day of this fast rider on a 450. Sounds like he's having the time of his life lol. Check out 2:25 - Insane!!!
  8. Hi I have a 2016 Yamaha YZ 85 and it seems in lower gears if you give it some gas the throttle seems to stick. Like a cruise control on a car. But the throttle doesn't physically stick. Anyways does anyone know how I can fix this?
  9. Do an average rider feel any difference riding a 2014 vs 2015 !? is there any big plus buying 2015 or even 2016 model compare to 2014!? I had sold my 2011 yz450f , and tried couple of other manufacture bikes, but at the end i am getting back to YZ . now i need some advice from experts : i have 2 option : either buying a 2014 around 2900SEK(3600$) or a 2015 yz450f for 34000SEK(4200$) . should i go for 2015 or just save money by buying 2014 model !?
  10. So we took our friend dirt biking for his first time, he's an excellent street rider, but has never been in the dirt before. He did quite well. Here's a little clip I made to highlight his day, hope you enjoy! Link: Abe's First Enduro Ride

    2010 YZ450f Setup recommendations

    I am racing the Baja1000 for the first time this year on a team. All of the guys I am racing with have years of experience and have raced on teams and iron manned the race. Most of the guys I will be racing with have KTM or Hondas but I myself have the 2010 Yamaha YZ450F. I am looking for any recommendations on setting the bike for baja. I am an advanced rider, my style is somewhat aggressive, I weigh 180lbs and am 6'1. I am looking to maximize my fuel capacity, connect a light, kickstand, and tires. I am curious about gearing, and mapping for the bike as well as any other ideas you want to throw my way.
  13. Hey guys, so recently I've noticed that my front pro circuit suspension is stiffer than hell. So I read on it and it said that sometimes it's because the front wheel is misaligned and the forks will not sit right. So I put the bike on a stand bled the suspension and got the axle nut loose and the pinch bolts, and every body said to push the suspension down or even press the brakes a few times to help align the wheel. I made sure to tighten the axle then tightened the pinch bolts. But when I tried to push the suspension down while everything was loose it barely moves at all because it's so stiff. I even tried putting the bike on the stand and turning the clickers counter clockwise to soften them up but they were out of adjustment. What do I Do? How do you guys realign the wheel? I've got a riding trip coming up soon and need as much help as I can get. I'll try to add a link to video I found of a bike doing the same thing.
  14. Hey everyone! I went out to the desert last weekend and decided to record it. We rode mostly tight sand washes. Check it out! PS Turn up the resolution and the cameras were faced too far down but I tried to make it work
  15. So I bought a WR400F cause Im a yamaha fanboy and I wanted something different from a DRZ like all my mates have. Everything seems fine except for the speedo not working (If anyone knows a digital one I can get please let me know), Until I accelerate...its only when I accelerate, its been getting worse I think. When ever I take it from half throttle or less to wide open (slow or fast) the bike almost stutters of coughs before finally getting the revs up then all of a sudden it's just peak power and goes like a lubed up rocket (Smooth). Even sometimes when Im dropping gears and I revmatch the bike will just cut out like its not getting enough air or not enough fuel? Happened a few times now, mainly when I blip the throttle quickly instead of a smooth flick. Anyone have answers on how to get that smooth action the entire way? oh and BTW (I know absolutely nothing about Bikes and carbys)

    Clutch might be bad

    Hey, I have a question. But first let me tell you that I am new to dirt biking, so I don't know anything. I purchased a 2001 YZ 125 in October and the seller said that he just changed the Piston and Clutch. I took it out in Gorman (OHV Riding Area) and like I said I am new, so I kept stalling the bike because I was learning and just let go of the clutch. But then when my dad got on, he said it is my fault for just letting go of the clutch lever, but also the clutch plates are a little bad. I can start the bike, let the clutch out 90%, and ride. Like shouldn't it start to move when I am half way of letting go of the clutch lever? I've seen videos of people holding their clutch lever half way and are moving 10-15mph. I can ride it perfectly fine now... But just wondering, what's wrong with it?
  17. so i can trade my 04 yz250f for a 2002 rm125 i ride mostly all trails. i am tired of my 4 stroke because it's nickle and diming me. i have a few questions about the RM. How is the reliability on 02 rm125/ Your opinions of bike Will the rm125 be easier to maintain than my yz250f? What problems will pop up on this bike or common problems, what should i ask the seller about the bike?

  20. Okay, so I've been researching and craigslist/eBay surfing for about 3 weeks straight, and I've settled on these three. Now for some details: Husky - 2008 TE510 (Street Legal) $3550 asking price Approximately 120 hours; forks have been overhauled to fix persistent seal leaks; replaced faulty stock odometer; claims that there are no EFI or electrical problems The guy said he checked the valves 500 miles ago and they were perfect. Recent oil change, has the Arrow exhaust. This bike comes with both a supermoto wheel/tire/rotor set and a dirt set, in addition to extra plastics, extra shifter, oil filter, lights/blinkers, extra 3 gal tank, extra sprockets, extra batteries, stand and loading ramp, etc. --- tons of extras. This is also the only bike I will be able to see physically as it's the only one even remotely close to me. I have heard these bikes have bad rod bearings and it's just a matter of time until they let go. I've also heard of all the electrical gremlins and EFI problems. Yamaha - 2006 WR450F (Not Street Legal) ~$3750 with shipping This bike belongs to a member on advrider who would be willing to ship. This one has 0 hours on a fresh top end rebuilt by "race engine tech" plus new valve springs. Rebuilt and cleaned carb with JD jet kit, revalved forks and shock, new brake pads, several other farkles. This one is not currently street legal, so I would have to go through the process to set it up for D/S. Pretty much the only downside to this one as far as I can tell. KTM - 2005 450EXC (Street Legal) ~$3750 with shipping This one is being sold on eBay by a guy who owns a small motorcycle repair/renovation shop. Verified VIN, have spoken with him on the phone -- seems to be legit. This one has been completely gone over by his shop. Adjusted valves, rebuilt forks (stock specs), greased bearings, new brake pads, 'ultrasonically cleaned' carburetor, custom skid plate, custom LED headlight and mount. A few other things but you get the gist. The engine is stock as far as I can tell. The guy made a video of the bike running and riding around. The engine sounds great, no weird noises or anything. Definitely seems to be as advertised. SO... What would you guys do here? I like the idea of the tappet valve adjustments on the KTM. I like the fuel injection on the Husky. I like the completely new top end on the Yamaha. They all sort of speak to me in one way or another. I'm afraid of the longevity of the Husky, and parts availability, but I'm tempted to go that way just because I will be able to test ride it first, something I won't be able to do for either the KTM or the Yamaha. I plan to do mostly trail riding, but the only trails near me are about 20 miles of pavement away. I like the idea of not having to trailer the bike, but I am not looking for a bike that will amaze me with its road capabilities. I also am planning to do a week long, 500-750 mile trail ride sometime this summer. I'd like to do more adventurous rides like this from time to time, but most of the time I will be just taking day trips to nearby trails. What do you guys think? PS Sorry this got incredibly long, but I've really been wracking my brain on this one. Thanks in advance for any help! EDIT: Oops, forgot there is also a 2012 KTM 450XC-W with rekluse/rad guards/steering dampener/radiator fan and only 30 hours on a top end rebuild only about an hour away from me. He's asking $4200 which is a bit out of my budget, but it may be worth it to stretch for such a newer bike? I would also have to convert it to street legal, though, so it seems like this one would end up being way more expensive overall.

    2008 Crf 450r bearing out?

    Hey! My name is Kyler. So recently my bike overheated like 3 times, then finally one day it quit on me. After draining the oil, it turns out there's shredded metal everywhere. So I tore it all down. Now I'm not sure whats the problem. So far all that I found is the little rectangular reed valve was missing 1 out of 2 screws, and around that area down there is where I found the most of the shredded metal. also, I'm not sure if its a problem but the actual shaft on the crank has the slightest bit of play. Mainly I just don't know what to replace so please help! I don't want to put it all back together and not replace the main prob. Thanks in advance!

  24. motorhog

    What kind of bike is this?

    So I was cutting my neighbors lawn when i came across this bike in my neighbors barn. They said i could have it for free and i thought it would be a great thing to try and fix up. But after looking at it and doing some research i cant find what it actually is. I believe it is a 1985 YZ 125, but i am not sure. Anyone know what it is and where i might be able to find some parts for it? Or if it would be better just top sell it for parts. Thanks!

    Yz 85 or yz 125

    Hi I’m 15 and I’m from Ireland. I can’t decide what bike to buy. I have no experience on dirt bikes(only small road bikes). I have been riding quads with about 10 years and I’m looking for a change. I can’t decide what to get a yz 125 or 85 since I’m only 5 4 and 55 kg. I have a lot of experience on quads so I’m not afraid of speed and power but I really don’t know much about bikes. Any advice would be appreciated .
