The reason your reply is wrong is because NOBODY believes anything on MXA.

Easiest way to check is run the bike without that tube

Yeah theyre check valves. Fuel vapors can escape the tank, but once actual gas tries to escape, that valve closes. Air should be able to go from outside the tank to inside though. Make sense?

Added reply in a thread 2014yz250f cutting out 5/30/2018 11:22 AM

Both ways or just 1? Air needs to go from the cap down thru the tube. Not tube thru the cap.

Your body adjusts to different altitudes. Jason can adjust to it but he would have to spend months there.

I think eli has a huge advantage by training at altitude. Hes just as fit as anderson and marv with way less oxygen. So when he goes back down to sea level to race his body has so much oxygen its probably similar to blood doping legitimately. I might ... more »

Looks like the intake side had some work done to it. Its not the same cast finish. Its machined. Maybe he meant the venturi was ported?

Gears out of order or you didnt put the forks in the right groove on the drum. Just a tip, before you put silicone between the cases, make sure you can shift thru the gears all the way before you fully assemble it
