Any guesses on what? .. I forgot to mention that the mechanic said the cylinder had a "little belly" .. but nothing serious. it was like 0.001, 0.001, 0.003.. the PO didnt know how to mix gas,either, and it was running super lean. There were some slight ... more »

Is there supposed to be a bit of resistance? Is it warped? Is the pin worn out? Can I run it without damaging the cylinder? https://streamable.com/mll5b

Yes sir. Gonna rent a crankcase splitter from Canadian Tire and clean/inspect the engine before dumping any more money into it. Hopefully the bottom end is just a little dirty and whatever those fragmented metals are from didn't do too much damage. Fingers ... more »

Everyone is right, it's mostly a comfort thing.. but no one asked what kind of riding you're doing! If you're riding on an MX track then you'll rarely be touching the ground other than at the start. (Unless you wipeout or need to plant your foot for ... more »

Body placement, technique, or suspension. Watch the vid above^ Make sure you're taking the jump in attack position, leaning forward etc etc.. one of the biggest thing people do is hammer the gas before hitting the jump. Try in a lower gear as someone ... more »

I've heard multiple people, (including the guy at the bike shop where i got my new pilot), say that a big bore kit does literally nothing to your jetting. Follow Revzilla's recommendations: https://www.revzilla.com/assets/0000/9581/fmf_gold_series_fatty_pipe_yamaha_yz12519961998.pdf ... more »

Yeah man, definitely cheaper - but the knowledge is priceless. So far I'm only 160CAD deep (mostly for the tune-up, cleaning prods and hardware). I figure once it's all said and done I'll be 700-800 total. Got the bike for $1000, so doing pretty good ... more »

Hey guys, another update ! Took the cylinder off (which was suuuuper hard because the piston was hella-stuck).. eventually got it out with patience and a flat head. Got the cylinder measured by a professional (2mm overbore), and he said it's virtually

Started new thread Pistons.. Flat Top Conversion vs Pro-lite 3/23/2018 4:44 PM

So I understand that with Flat Top Conversion there is no intake window pinned on centerline.. and you get more compression.. but how does that really stand up against the pro-lite or regular piston? .. for the extra money, is it really worth it? .. ... more »

Started new thread Help!! Flex Hone question. 3/23/2018 4:07 PM

Just got my bore measured.. it's 56mm in circle (2mm overbore).. however i can only find stock 54mm Flex Hones (320 grit). Is it better to go under and get the stock? .. or go over? .. cause I also found a 57mm 240 grit.

Apparently as long as you use a metal that's weaker than the jet metal, it should be fine.. I was using a piece from the high-E string. (so very thin, very soft). Some people swear by it. Thanks for the tip! I'll definitely try this on an old jet!
