Oil filter is the same

Original post said make offer, so that’s what we did. It may be worth 1500, but I’d say a blown up stocker with a stock pipe and stock wheels is a better deal.

$700

Worth emailing k and b in Petaluma. They will quote an otd price. I think bike sales were pretty good last few months so stock maybe limited. Also if your looking at huskies, motoxotica in Fairfield is also good.

Curious where you find avgas? Most of the Bay Area services look to be full service and not accessible for drive in customers.

I think the tuner app only sets safe conditions. I think on some of those more aggressive maps their maybe some gains. The thing that kinda make me laugh is avoiding pump gas with ethanol fuel and then buying oxygenated race gas.

Added reply in a thread Help me understand fuels 8/19/2020 9:16 AM

I think the issues stem from the oxygenated part. Leaded fuels are generally a positive for motor internals although in a 2 stroke with the absence of valves I think the advantages are probably small.

Added reply in a thread Help me understand fuels 8/19/2020 6:56 AM

Fuels don’t necessarily make more power. You need a motor that needs high octane to make more power. (Compression, timing, etc...) So if you have a 2 stroke, there’s probably a sweet spot between pump gas and 100+ octane that works pretty well. If it’s ... more »

Ken O’Connor racing is another one that is commonly thrown out there.

Not sure. I’ve been trying the website for the last two weeks.

Have you seen a Tyga pipe?

I’d probably spring for the oem kit. Hard to say that the pro x is close to oem on a euro bike. I’d call the the shop you have rebuilding it. The may have some insight.

Added reply in a thread Who is using what? Stock, Rebuilt, or Mod? 8/4/2020 10:23 PM

I’ll use prox bearings and seals. Look to be identical to oem and carry same koyo numbers. Athena for two stroke gasket kits.

Added reply in a thread Crank rebuild components 8/4/2020 10:08 PM

Yeah the fitment would scare me. Those ceramic bearings barely shrink when you freeze them. And no way you could hammer them.

As a rm125 owner I’d recommend against an rm125. It has cool factor but parts are kinda expensive and the yz motor is superior and easier to ride. I’d also look for something that is mostly stock. A 2 stroke with the original pipe on it is a good sign. ... more »

Added reply in a thread 450 back to 2 stroke 8/2/2020 9:59 AM

Ride both. 2 stokes really help you ride the 4 stroke better. Shifting, braking, and body position are things you gotta do on 2 stroke! I think people can ride a whole track in 3rd gear on a 450.

Added reply in a thread Worth it to upgrade to a 250f? 8/1/2020 9:44 PM

Have all three. A 125, a 250f and a 250. Without a doubt the 250f is the easiest bike to ride. Also very forgiving. Your budget maybe tough to get one that’s low hours which is probably what you want.

I rented one. I found the seating position uncomfortable for long drives. It drove fine, but just couldn’t get comfortable.

What you have pictures there may not be a big deal. Besides the water pump cover, none of those parts have bearing bores. And if it’s water cooled, I can’t imagine that the coat of paint makes a huge difference. Just think the heat from a piston goes ... more »

I believe you can use your app to check for codes instead of taking it to the dealer.
