I might torque my sprocket bolts, but not the bolts holding my side panels on.

I stand corrected. The Yamaha mechanic that gave them to me told me they were ti. If they are not, they are still super light and perfect for attaching bodywork.

The R1 ti bolts I am referring to have 12pt heads. They are ti.

I always just set it on the ground before I put it on. I do the same thing wirh all new gear. It releases the magnetism between the new item and the ground.

If you can find someone parting out an R1, there are lots of ti bolts on them. Perfect ti bolts for shrouds, fenders, side panels, etc. it is amazing how light they are. You can barely tell you are holding one in your hand.

I’ve only ridden it twice since the 134. It pulls a lot better than it did before. I requested a more top end port job and it does run well up top. I may need better fuel though. I had some pinging. I’ve put a bigger main jet in it so I’ll see how it ... more »

Maybe vapor lock, or a pinched vent tube?

I bought this ‘04 CR125 for my nephew. Before I got it sorted out my brother bought him a new CRF150R. So I went ahead with the project. It has CRF450 forks and shock, a Tom Morgan Racing 134cc top end, etc. I have gone through it completely and have

Started new thread Easy spring swap 3/14/2019 12:03 PM

I wasn’t sure if this would work but I tried it and it did. I needed to swap the rear spring on my ‘04 CR250. This is how I did it. I think this would work on other bikes too. Loosened the spring pre-load adjusters completely. Layed bike over on it’s ... more »

I’ve seen this a few times. A new rear brake line was the cure.

Added reply in a thread 84 & 85 kx 125 2/18/2019 6:28 AM

Those are a hell of a lot nicer than the ‘85 KX125 I ran across the other day. I did not make an offer. Anyone have an idea of what this might be worth? The owner does not have the air box.

Factory Connection suspension on my mx bikes has always been night and day better than stock. Installing a Lectron carb on my CR250 woods bike was also a revelation.

Webb looks like MC on the bike. He hits everything perfectly and stays just a little lower in the air. He’s gonna be tough too beat whenever he gets a good start.

I bought one of those ultra light batteries that looks like a six pack for my crf450x. It is the best battery I have ever had. It holds a charge for months without being on a tender. Got it from Sportbiketrackgear
