Is That Alpaca Blood on Your Face?
In my world, things always happen for a reason. Sometimes the reason makes no sense other than the fact that it gives us a crazy unbelievable story. That might be the case here.

Leak Down Testing // Pt I
Determining how healthy an engine is can be tricky business. I’ve previously covered compression testing (here and here ), but now I want to discuss what a leak down test is and how to perform one on a four-stroke dirt bike engine. This will be a two part series, with the first part emphasising the details of a leakdown test, and the second part explaini...

Hare scramble starts and MX starts are often overlooked when it comes to practicing during the week. Its the only place on the track where you can pass all your competition at once and further more set yourself up for a better finish position then having to work from the back.

Problems starting, Bike will not start from a kick, if I connect fuel pump to 12v bike starts first kick, voltage at fuel pumps is about 4v when kicked, what voltage should it be and what could be the problem.
Ok so I'm trying to get into shape to start racing.
I have had my 2015 WR250F SSS forks lowered 40mm. My suspension guy says to use the stock amount of oil. Does this make sense? I would have thought that the air chamber is now much smaller and the volume of fork oil should be reduced as well.
I came across a real nice 2000 cr80. I bought it in hopes to work out a trade for something else if the time ever came. Then i found out that kids that race 85s run "superminis" that are 85s bored and stroked to a 112cc engine. Right now the bike is completly stock. Would i be better off making o...
My 300 boys at high rpm. Sometimes it will hit high rpms and then it just goes away and bogs. Could it be the power valve? Seems to mis and backfires some.

Ok, so I brought this thing back from the dead and I've got everything done it but this stupid noise. It's a knocking/tapping noise that's pretty loud and increases it's speed with engine speed. I've adjusted the valves with the motor running as per specs, I've checked the cam chain tensioner, an...
Hello All, Newbie here glad to find you guys. While ridding last summer my bike stalled a couple times and I noticed that the head light began to flicker. It finally stared and would not start. Once at home I found that the head light, rear turn signal, and one fuse had all blown. I have re...
I completely tore down the engine of my 1980 yamaha enticer 300 last winter because a crank bearing went. Now that I have a new bearing and complete gasket kit I'm starting to put it back together. I have a supplemental service manual for it that has torques and stuff, but it doesn't really say a...
