Added reply in a thread 2003 Yamaha ttr125l? How much compression should it have? 4/29/2020 10:31 AM

It will not have a lot of compression due to the decompression set up. It will most likely only read about 65 lbs. Smoking can be worn rings or bad valve seals or a flooding carb. Paw Paw

It was called a "Boost Bottle". It came stock on 1979 Yamaha Yz100's and 125's. I don't recall it making a bunch more power, but it did help as it smoothed out the fuel mix delivery. Paw Paw

Added reply in a thread Help,with Big Bore Jetting 4/26/2020 2:30 PM

Most of the time re jetting is not needed for a 4 stroke big bore kit... Have you tried to adjust the fuel screw? Have you checked your pilot jet for dirt? Did you replace the exhaust gasket ah the head? If not, it can cause the decal pop. Paw Paw
