Nice... good deal. Love my YZ's.

Added reply in a thread Ktm sx250 2013 seems rich flatter out?? Help! 5/18/2016 11:25 AM

Well, as the temp increases, the bike gets richer and requires leaner jetting. But 155-150 sounds ridiculously lean. I'd try a 162-165 just to see what the effect is. You may be mistaking lean for rich.

Funny, we are always told that the tighter tolerances of Factory suspension are what makes them so awesome. Then when we go making our tolerances tighter we are told it's not a good idea.

The rear I think should bolt right up. My brother used my spare 2006 wheel on his 2002 YZ125 no problem. As for the front, there may be different bearing or spacer sizes due to the different forks from 2003-2005.

Yep, the ones yelling the loudest are almost never wearing MX gear. There was a track owner a few years ago that would always say at riders' meeting, "Dad, little Johnny truly might be the next Ricky Carmichael, but it's probably not going to happen ... more »

Nice. Sweet repair. I had never seen this on the YZ125 before but it appears fairly common judging by this thread. Being the owner of 2 YZ's and CRF450, there is a big difference in the correct chain tension. The Hondas have required very little slack ... more »

Added reply in a thread Aldon Baker Exclusive to KTM Group 5/12/2016 8:31 PM

I never said Aldon will be training anyone else. You're confusing the absence of one thing to equate with the existence of another thing that is not stated anywhere. According to the press release, KTM riders WILL USE Aldon as a trainer. That does not ... more »

Added reply in a thread Aldon Baker Exclusive to KTM Group 5/12/2016 8:28 PM

No interpretation involved. It's standard English. "will exclusively use".. that means KTM riders will not use any trainer other than Baker. It doesn't get any plainer than that. If you don't agree with that you're not arguing with me. You're misreading ... more »

Added reply in a thread Aldon Baker Exclusive to KTM Group 5/12/2016 7:52 PM

That is not true. Per the wording of the press release, it does not say Aldon will not train riders other than KTM riders. It says KTM riders will not use any trainer other than Aldon. "The factory riders of the KTM GROUP and riders in our Junior program ... more »

Yes, eventually it will flow from the clutch side over to the tranny. However, if you check the level using the check screw immediately after pouring it in you could potentially get a false reading of it being full before it has a chance to level out.

Are you stating a known fact or an assumption? I seriously doubt KTM would go through the trouble of hiring a team trainer and then make it "optional" to their riders. This is about them taking steps to control the quality and consistency of their riders ... more »

Also, I don't think the setup is to guide the oil towards the clutch during operation. I think it's to guide the oil to the transmission instead of the clutch area when you are pouring it in from the filler hole (the old setup with the flat plate, that ... more »

I kind of ran into the opposite problem. Right half case broke on a 2005 CRF250. Ordered a case 1/2 and it came with only 1 mounting hole (your style) instead of the 2 holes the older 2005 case had. Original 2005 case with old style Oil Guide Plate on

Yes, pushing the fluid from the bottom up with a syringe does 99% of the work. Also, I think you need to address your caliper. On a bike that old you might as well just rebuild it and make sure the pins are cleaned and greased and that the pistons do

The crank looks like it laid around and got covered in rust so someone hit it with a grinder quick to remove the rust.

"making a computer help shouldn't be one. Electronic aids are only taking away needed skill. " But yet you want computer controlled EFI and power valve? Kind of ironic.
