Yeah everything looking mighty dry there. Do the cardboard test on the gas that was in the tank to confirm. Post results!

Same 2" threads as a Jerry can?

Added reply in a thread Searle having fun on a 125 as old as he is. 4/26/2021 11:10 AM

Bikes sound like garbage. Probably need to get the jetting looked at!

Any bike, any displacement. Must be stock (limited mod rules defined to allow some tweaking, but eliminate the massive advantage of factory suspension). At each round, the "Fast 80" is defined in combined, all rider qualifying. 1-40 go to the "premier" ... more »

Are you tightening the big 22mm axle nut first before any of the 10mm pinch bolts? You need to do that to side load the bearings and spacers to hold it in position.

Power should all be same. Husky 2021 has the 10mm shorter suspension which is nice for shorter riders. The bike is noticeably smaller.

I'm running Avgas in all my 2-strokes. It's really hard to justify $10 - $35/gal for race gas when AvGas is $4.90.

Added reply in a thread Carrying bikes in a motovan question. 4/22/2021 9:50 AM

I've had both the bike shoes and the Lock-N-Load Pros. Would definitely rate the lock n loads higher. Bike shoes are annoying as they are bolted permanently in place and are super easy to bang your shins on and quite painful. Since they hold the bike ... more »

Spoiled by Atlanta Motor Speedway. Back to the small stadiums and cookie cutter designs.

Added reply in a thread YZ125H Carb Help: Mystery Pilot Jet 4/21/2021 7:22 PM

One of my common memories of bikes in the 80's is they almost universally came jetted on the rich side from the factory. It was basic routine to lean out a new bike to reduce the sputtering and spooge production. I always figured the factories delivered ... more »

Added reply in a thread YZ125H Carb Help: Mystery Pilot Jet 4/21/2021 12:37 PM

I don't recall any specific magic for the 1981 YZ125, but that sounds like a simple case of a pilot jet that's too rich. Parts diagram says that stock pilot is a #80. I would try a 75 and then a 70 to see what that gives you.

DB, I'll answer both posts. PMP-Tucson: Still no movement. Track sits idle. I believe if a serious operator approached the county with a lease proposal that would get things going. Nomads SV: Yes, we still have the club and the track. Send me a PM and ... more »

Added reply in a thread Should of got a 350 years ago... 4/20/2021 9:21 PM

For dirt starts? Turn on the Launch control (push map and TC buttons simultaneously until the FI light blinks). 2nd gear, hold throttle 3/4 or more. When gate drops feed clutch out and gradually get throttle to WFO as you clear the gate.

How did I miss this? I spent many years in Oki on and off from 1992 to present. Very familiar with the moto scene there. Old thread but let me know if you still have any questions.

Added reply in a thread 2018 KTM 250SXF Clutch Sticking 4/20/2021 7:01 PM

Yeah I would suspect an incomplete bleed would cause slight plate drag. I use a Mityvac hand vacuum. Works like a champ. Simple and quick.

Added reply in a thread 125 Jetting. Adding pipe and silencer 4/20/2021 6:54 PM

What bike and what pipe/silencer? My experience with both my YZ125 and TC125 is very little to no jetting changes and that's with a few different pipe brands. Sometimes a 1 size change on the pilot or main.

Added reply in a thread Yz450f new problem 4/20/2021 10:00 AM

It is common for condensation in the valve cover and breather hose to cause an oily/milky mix in there. Especially if you live in an area of high humidity and/or large temp swings. So, the few drops of milky oil in the breather may be innocuous and unrelated ... more »
