I get 5 ohms with it installed. Check again while twisting the throttle and se if you get a reading. If you do install and adjust until you get 5. Then adjust at idle 1800 rpm.

Could cause idle problem. Did you check the valve clearance before removing the valves? If they were zero the valves never completely close. What Factor E is suggesting is the wear may be too much to just cut the seats and replace valves. What size shims ... more »

I would agree there are too many Supercross races.

The valves look to be cupped to me. I would replace and have the seats cut.

Yamaha and Tomac are more interested in testing the new bike than winning MXDN. Hope it’s not a repeat of 18.

Post is confusing. Did it run out of fuel? Did you try to restart it immediately after it died and push it back to the pits? Or did it start momentarily only after you fueled it?

I had a late 80s Broc Glover riding technique VHS tape in which he described “turning as you leave the jump face to stay lower.” He didn’t take credit but the technique was out there. James certainly took it to the next level.

Nut on rod is turned in by hand until it bottoms on rod. Then bottom bolt is screwed on until it bottoms. Wrench on both till snug.

Try Diverse Springs. They have high quality chrome silicone springs.

Your clutch components look fine to me. Chris Keefer wrote this article about your clutch problem. I think DynoDan nailed it. https://www.keeferinctesting.com/clutch-problems-proper-breather-hose-routing-on-husqvarna-ktm-gas-gas/

Added reply in a thread Red Spark Instead of Blue 8/25/2022 5:34 PM

Spark should be white. Sometimes the plug cap pin that screws into the coil wire corrodes and causes bad spark. Cut off a half inch of coil wire, clean pin and reinstall. When a bike gets hot the resistance in the coil increases. Yours may be bad. You ... more »

With ignition cover off, bike running spray starter fluid behind flywheel. RPM increases means crank seal. Don’t have to split cases. Easy to replace.

The cylinder/ crankcase seal is fine. You should be able to see any deformation. “Haste and rage” Almost fell out of my chair laughing! When you get experience working on bikes you won’t fall for that, and take a break. It only took me 50 years.

I have been riding for 50yrs. Jumping is fun and safe . . . until it’s not. You didn’t see a small lip on the face and the bike endos. Someone cross jumps and takes your front wheel out. Someone lands on you. You were very lucky. A lot of potential energy ... more »

Check the O ring for cut first. If that is good most likely the clamp. Either take a bolt cutter and attempt to pinch tighter or remove and replace with hose clamp. Should carry extra O rings in your toolbox.

I would try. The hardest part would be the discharge spigot. Don’t try to get it perfect.
