New fluid and proper bleed, new pads should be good as new, CRF mc's are good but a fair few Yamahas had 11mm Pistons in their MC's over the years, recently too.

We will see I kind of had my heart set on the polished silver but when i get a bit more of this rig built and see which way the build has gone I will decide bronze is nice but I guess I want to be a little understated with this build. . OEM crank is ... more »

Why do they have exhaust pipe springs on the YZ125 carb?

So as I said in the original post the suspension is will be a massive upgrade over the stock stuff and is going to get a full rebuild and revalve, I also had a lot of stuff sent off for hard anodising. I polished the fork tubes most of the shock body.

Happy to see my husky get another run in the limelight. Good photos are what makes the difference I think, get down level with the bike, set it up square on a stand, pick a nice area with good light blah blah blah the list goes on but when you get it right its worth it

I have an 18 TC250, so far I like the AER forks and I've had them along with the shock revalved for my speed and skill and man its night and day better, but I am considering going with a K-Tech Air2Spring conversion at the end of the year. Any way there ... more »

Seen it before on OEM rims, I've had a few TIG welded, one cracked again soon after but the other one I still have in my shelf and used daily until I converted my WRF to super moto. With the rim that cracked again I think it has more to do with the guy ... more »

I really like that Kreft PV adjuster... Not that I had too many dramas with the Mikuni but I went with a Lectron on mine, no jets just riding. I run 60:1 all day every day I had no jetting issues.
