Toyota pickups=over rated

DIY Truck Bed Dirt Bike Mounting?

I was thinking of making a simple loading mechanism for my 250.    Simply using two 2x4 boards that run from the bed of the truck and secure onto the top of the forks.  I'd anchor it to both ends. With the board being plenty stiff, this should hold the bike securely with little to...

Carb problems

Someone wants me to rebuild a carb for them on a 2002 blaster. He says it keeps leaking gas out of one of the tubes and drains all the gas real quick. Does it need rebuilt? Sounds like maybe one of the jets broke or something and the gas is just going straight though.

The clutch didn't want to engage at first but after tapping on...
