Hi there, i got me a problem. my xr400, about a week ago i heard a slight ticking in the right hand side of the head, the sound kept getting louder as i rode the bike to and from work. i figured it was the valves. so when it got loud enough to hear without listening for it i went in and checked valves for the first time in my life. did a fair job. in spec now. but as i didnt know much as it was my first time, in all my wisdom i turned the flywheel clockwise trying to find tdc. (Which isnt where it should be, not on the T marker) i heard a clicking/snapping noise when i did this, ive read now that it could have been the manual decomp? but now the noise is so loud its almost drowning out the idle. i checked the cam chain tensioner. its fully extended itself. is this my problem? or did i break something?
I've wasted my stock pipe, but don't want to spend $200+ for a new Gnarly. Lightly used but not abused is acceptable to me. I believe the part number for my bike is 025087. I am open to other part numbers if it can be verified that it will fit my bike.
If it has a guard, I might be open to paying a little more for it. But I already have a brand new Moose Pipe Armor guard waiting to be installed, so it's not necessary.
Thanks in advance...
Hello, gotta say sorry for my bad English in advance, im just a confused swede
i have a 2010 kx450f and i need new spokes. a friend of mine have a set with spokes but he is unsure if it is complete . he had 30 spokes in a package i could buy from him.
anyway, my dirtbike is 2 hours away from where i live right now so i need some help here. How many spokes are there on a 19" rear wheel on a original black rim kx450f-10?
Here is my "new to me" 2006 CRF450R.
Just did new valves/and adjustment as soon as i got her along with a new plug, and all fresh fluids.
She will kick over first or second time no problem when shes cool. .. but if i stall it out after I've been riding for a while its an absolute nightmare to get her started again.
either way I love the power of this bike. shes amazing. BUT next bike will have an E-start.... Im lazy.
Today I blew/ lost a head screw on my new-to-me KTM 150 XC two stroke. The bike runs, no odd noises, but lacks compression. My friend and I ran a compression test after the ride. It read around 100-95 pounds. However, when my friend and I did this test, we did not replace to screws or torque them to spec, as one head bolt was lost. Could our reading be off? The P/O claimed a new top end...
