2smokin- check your valve lash lately? I know, I know, not fun. Think about it though, tough to start, gets worse once she's hot (and the valves are expanded and longer). I'm willing to bet they are a little on the tight side. I have an 06, have beaten its brains out and never experienced any electrical issues other than a voltage reg blowing out. It still ran just popped headlight bulbs.

Have not checked them in about 8 months. They were right in the middle of the range, but I guess it couldn't

hurt to check em again, although I kinda ruled the valve lash out because once it cuts out I let it sit for a few hours

and the engine is cold it still wont restart.

My buddy loaned me his carb to try to rule that out. Now I just gotta wait for this Norcal mud to dry out a bit

and I will give it a try.

When I got the bike the rectifier/regulator was blown, it kept popping light bulbs, replaced it and since then

no more blown bulbs but something odd I noticed. The headlight is bright at idle but gets a little

dimmer with rpm increase. :thinking: Maybe that indicates a stator issue ? Dunno yet, just gonna start

swapping stuff out and test and retest. Sure would be nice if I lived somewhere I could just ride

out of the garage and take it for a spin.

I think its electrical but gotta rule out the carb before I buy a new stator or CDI.

Damn n16ht5... you know you are good when you trail ride with trials riders.... AND a dirt bike with a sidecar!! What is that all about? Awesome videos man, you are definitely hard core! Do I see a SnowBike conversion in your future?

I just finished installing the ProTaper riser bars and Guts Racing after market seat to my 2012!

Prep for Enduro on Sunday. Changed oil, cleaned air filter, put on new Michelin S12 rear, installed new YZF front fender. Snapped a few pics since this is probably as good as it will ever look. LOL. Click on the thumbnail to make bigger.

      For sale is my 2015 Beta 350RR. 2734 miles and 120 hours. Just had some top end work done by Sierra BMW and BETA. Fresh air filter and oil. This is an awesome dual sport bike. Or you can strip the lights and turn signals and have a single track weapon, your choice. This bike will do it all. Unfortunately, I've been riding my 2 stroke lately and don't have room or the time to maintain 2 bikes. My loss is your gain! Front tire only has a few rides on it, the rear needs to be changed. Beta's are super reliable and amazing machines that rival KTM and Husky!

      -Mylers oversized radiators and bulletproof radiator guards
      -Folding ARC clutch and brake levers (I have the stock levers as well)

      I have a 1987 yamaha tt 225 that needs a new carburetor.  I've looked EVERYWHERE online and can't find an original.  Does anyone know a good replacement one I can put on it?

      Amazing bike but due to family obligations it sits in my garage most of the time. The bike has maybe 5 hours on it and runs like new. It comes with a GYTR FMF silencer with spark arrestor. There are some scratches on the plastic and and pipe from trail riding but that's what it is made for and its only cosmetic. The bike has been maintained and garage kept. If you have any questions please text me at (415)three 4 two- 4 five 8 six.

      So I just did a rebuild on my 98 Yz80, and it wont start. At first, we put the gaskets on wrong, so coolant was leaking everywhere. After we fixed that, and put everything back into place again, piston went up and down smoothly, and it has great compression. The problem is, it does not want to start. Im not really sure what to do, because before, my compression was very low, so I did a rebuild, but now it still does not start. So I need help.
