Added reply in a thread 2023 KTM 85 air fork stuck down… also weird on down stroke 10/3/2022 11:02 AM

Known issue on the Austrian outfitted WP bikes. I don't believe the OEM will do anything about it until it has at least 10 hrs on them. The dealers have to do the same if the bikes sit on the floor.

Added reply in a thread CRF250R No start! 9/12/2022 2:53 PM

I question the bike running and then being 180 degrees out of time. The only way this could have happened is if you had a separate cam gear on the crank that spun on the crank shaft, meaning not a one piece crank. A bike will not start 180 degrees out ... more »

I am going to say its the valve seals, but 48hrs is low for them to leak, but that is going to be my guess.

Need to use a crank puller to insure the crank bearings are pressed against the crank correctly.

Did you install the piston correctly with the arrow facing the exhaust port?

Added reply in a thread Nitrogen Shock Fill 6/16/2022 9:54 AM

Chuck_Below hit the nail on the head. Nitrogen provides stability. Using air the pressure can vary 5-10% during a extreme temperature change or really fast cycling of the shock or fork.

Also you can get you some gold foil and wrap the bottom of your tank with it. It helps reflect the heat, you can get it from Motosport or RMATVMC.

3 years ago I carried my camper and we ended up in Lot 4, but in my opinion it was the best spot. Right by the bridge and the creek, easy access in and out. They did shut off camping last year on Monday I believe. It is a blast, if I hadn't sold my camper ... more »

Yes that cylinder was originally aluminum with nikasil but someone had the cylinder sleeved with a steel sleeve. Yes you can counter bore that portion of the sleeve to accept the new style stud.

Added reply in a thread 2020 Ktm supermini build 4/28/2022 9:38 AM

For a true 112 you need to machine the cylinder head to accept the stroked crank.

Added reply in a thread 2021 Yamaha YZ250F Oil Consumption 4/28/2022 9:29 AM

I agree with Moto520 as well, but the smoke upon start up is the valve seals. They are letting oil get by and sits on top of piston until you start up. Pull the head and change the seals.

Take it to your closest Yamaha dealer they will do the warranty and can work with you on it. With the new EFI and ECU they can hook up and see run hours, you should be able to get it covered under warranty. Sounds like the TPS sensor to me. Have you ... more »
