My boys and I have bikes, but the wifey refuses and still has her quad.... wonderful campsite rig to run up and refill the firewood, and also makes a great sled pulling machine to yank the kids around the subdivision when it snows.

I have a Grizzley 660 and couldn't see myself without a fourwheeler. Other than collecting dust it serves well for hauling stuff, camping off it, fishing off it, good bike rescue vehicle, taking a date out on it, and letting the nieghbor borrow it all the time. We have a lot of really good mountain quad trails to do some rock crawling on that would not be fun on a bike. But with all that being said it really is just a dust collector.

I was being silly. I spent last Saturday on a Quad clearing trail. I don't own one though.

Back to WR stuff fellas.

I stood, woefully, staring at my dismantled '08, with YZ suspension and motor parts patiently waiting to be installed.

The head needed a rebuild, so it's more dismantling, and valves and stuff this week.

Next week it will start heading back in the other direction....

I do believe I have found my issue......

DSCN1313_zps747d0502.jpg

This is the lead from the harness to the coil/spark plug boot....

and it should look like this...

DSCN1310_zps72e29294.jpg

For sure a new wiring harness is in order but just to ease the brain and wallet I am cutting the bad plug off

and rigging up some temp connections to see if runs longer than 5 min. If it does, I gotta order a new harness,

which is another $260 ish.and a few weeks out ( $ ) .

Just to recap ....new coil $140, new reg/rectifier $150, Ricky Staor-stator/PU coil/DC reg $190, new

OHM meter $ 50, new soldering gun and supplies $ 50 ...

as well as swapped in/out buddys carb and CDI $ 50 ( in beer ) .

Dont get me wrong I ain't complaining just more of learning things the hard way for me I guess .

Can't wait to get back out in the forrest on this beast.

Still2Smokin, I sure hope you've found the problem!! It looks like it's had a bad connection for awhile now, and has been "arcing" across the terminal, causing the erosion issue. If this fixes your issue, when it comes time to put the new wiring harness on, I'd recommend some dielectric grease on all of the connections to keep this from happening again. Good Luck!!!

Hell if that doesn't fix it and after all you have been through, tell Ms. Still2smokin I think you deserve a new FI WR model.

Thanks for the support !

I put the harness back in with my temp connections in place, had my buddy kick it once...

IMG3078_zpse2568929.jpg

and of course it ran great, notice the hot header.....in the garage as usual. Gonna ride it this weekend to be sure.

I am pretty sure this was the issue. I am also pretty sure "Mrs. Smokin" aint gonna be too happy when another

package shows up for the bike ( new harnesess ), Should be ordered by mon-tues. But untill then I can re-live some

good shit watching this........

I use the same gloves. I bought 4 pair at one time. LOL I like the soft towel like area to wipe my brow with. We sweat down here in the humidity. 661 had some like that that I used for years but they stopped making them.

Last 3 minutes is similar to the trail blazing we have been doing. Working on a 75 mile system about 2hrs away. Been following paint blazes on trees with no established trail. Romaniacs style. It is tough riding but somebody has to do it. We are about half way done. It is pretty slow going work, but lately some new blood has come into our club and the speed of progress is picking up.

      Hey guys its me again... the motocross noob and this time I bought a clutch cover protecter when bought my brand new 2017 yz250f so that it wouldn't get all scratched up. It came with longer hardware etc. do you know if when I take off the clutch cover bolts to bolt the protecter over the top will it leak oil? If it will I will just wait till after I break it in while I'm doing the oil change. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Hey guys I just bought a brand new 2017 YZ250f and I am going riding this weekend and I read that I need to break it in. I read in the owners manual to ride for 20 mins 1/4 throttle and 40 mins 1/2 throttle. It then says to change the oil afterwards and check everything. I found some tutorials online for changing my oil and I am comfortable doing it as I have done it many times before on my CRF150r. On the 150 you use 10W-40 oil in both the transmission side and the engine oil side. I noticed that there were no tutorials for changing transmission oil only engine and in the owners manual I couldn't find anything either. Is this because you only fill up that one side and the oil spreads itself throughout the transmission and the engine? Any help would be very much appreciated!

      hey guys. got a 04 ttr 225 here and alot of ticking in the head. went to adjust valves and intake checked out ok. exhaust on the other had is messed up. the little adjuster bolt thing with a square head wont thread in the rocker arm any more. it threads so far untill it just starts to stick out the bottom of the rocker then stops like it wont go any farther. almost like stripped or wrong bolt or something. very frustrating. it will run but with the most god awful head noise in the world!
