Maybe elis disgust for moving over or letting people win is why he didnt thank joey. What if letting him win made eli lose respect for joey? What if that move embarrassed eli? Theres another side to this story we havent heard.

You know south park predicted this in that episode where the prius drivers sniffed their own farts.

The chances of round one not being anaheim is slim to none. Also, why would a factory mechanic know this information

The back left would be where your timing chain is right? Theres no coolant there. Something is still warped or your gaskets are defective. Another issue could be..when you resurfaced the parts, they were warped in a manner where the parts didnt sit on ... more »

Excessive valve clearance can cause a tick as well. Make sure timing chain, guides, and tensioner are all in good shape.

Well initially i suggested the prox ones. Theyre stainless - more durable. And cheaper than OEM valves and springs. Also great quality

Well found the problem.. Theres 3 intake valves. the center valve height is supposed to be shorter than the outside 2. The wiseco kit came with two center valves and 1 outside valve. So the center intake valve i was having issues with was actually an ... more »

Yeah they were out of stock. Now that im well rested, grinding the top of the valve isnt going to solve this problem. The upper spring guide by itself still doesnt allow proper clearance. Either wisecos valves are trash quality or this head from yamaha ... more »

Ill look into it. Didnt think of measuring that. With the valve kits coming with springs id assume theyre all made for each other

I used prox stainless valves on my two bikes and they worked flawlessly. Customer didnt want to wait for prox valves to come in so he ordered these. Oh well.

Also had a yz250 that had some resistance on a fresh rebuild. It didnt snag or hang up, just had resistance. I was told to take a dead blowhammer and whack the end of the crank to “set” the crank in the bearings. It helped a lot. BUT, Since youre snagging ... more »

It compares because he also complained about money too. Dont get me wrong, if all of this is true then eli clearly lacks manners. A thanks is expected no doubt.

You dont give gifts with the expectation of something in return. That makes it a transaction. Not a gift. To me, its like holding the door for a girl and getting pissed when she walks in and doesnt give you her number. You look like a whiney little beta ... more »
