Added reply in a thread 2 stroke jetting for VPR? 5/27/2022 6:45 AM

I use VPR mixed 50/50 with 93 pump gas at 32:1 using the same jetting I did on straight pump gas. With 100% T2 I leaned the clip one notch. My bike runs just as good at 50/50 as it does on straight VPR so I mix it to save money.

Added reply in a thread KTM Frame "Stretch" / Replacement --- Tell me more please, KTM Newbie Here 5/17/2022 2:43 PM

In the '90s I raced pro SX on 250 Hondas and the frames did stretch to the point it had an affect on handling. When the bike was brand new I would measure from the swingarm pivot bolt to the front axle and make a note in the owners manual. I would remeasure ... more »

A friend has a 22 yz125 X ,it still comes with the mikuni TMX 38 carb. From the first ride this bike ran rich and leaked fuel out the overflow tube. We tried smaller pilot jets and clip positions with little improvement. The jet block gasket was replaced ... more »

Low speed shaft movements before the face shim lifts is controlled by the bleed hole. The rebound adjuster has more effect on compression than the compression adjuster . Next time the shock is off the bike remove the spring and compress the shock by ... more »

Walmart has them and Harbor freight also, about $10.00 . You will need to spin it fast so runout will be a problem , just keep moving the micro chuck around until it spins as true as possible.

Yes in the 70's we did complain about all the new bikes and for good reason. Back in the day new bikes were just a starting platform , you could race them stock until they broke. If you wanted to avoid DNF's you had to finish what the MFG started and ... more »

Added reply in a thread seat foam help ? I cut down my stock now it feels to firm. Options ? 1/27/2022 4:31 AM

An option you may consider is drilling 1/2" or 3/4" holes up from the bottom of the seat foam in the area you sit. This is an old trick we used in the 90's to soften up technosel foam that came too firm. I removed the foam from the seat base but have ... more »

If the forks were mine I would bore the holes 2mm larger, that is only .04" removed on each side of the hole. The major force is going in the up direction and there is plenty of metal up top.

Added reply in a thread YZ125 Jetting for Avgas 7/15/2021 4:45 AM

I run av gas mixed 50/50 with pump gas in my ktm 150sx and my yz125 before that. On the yz125 I leaned the pilot to a 37.5 and went up to a 500 on the main. You can run LL100 straight but I felt it made the bike run flat, it was much more responsive ... more »
