What did you do to your WR today?

So I retarded the exhaust cam a tooth and ground down the decomp pin about 1mm/ .040 in a few weeks ago .

 

Notice I said "about" :banghead: ,   well apparently I went to far.  I ground down to .040 and then rounded/polished it ,

which then measured .049 :rant: . Oh well I tried it any way , the extra power is nice however it became damn near

impossible to start because the decomp was not right.  

 

I put back in the other stock exhaust cam I have and it starts super easy again. 

 

I screwed up this mod and should have just ponied up the $180 for the YZ cam .

you can get a cam off Ebay for way less than 180. I got one for like 112 brand new. The bike fires up fine on the E start you just have to give it a hair of gas at the right time.

Did the Beehive Enduro in South Jersey today.  Unfortunately GoPro was nearly full so I missed a lot of good footage.

We finally got some rain!  I fornicated with my WR in the best conditions we've had in a few months.

Finally got around to changing the NJ MC title for my 09 WR. It was titled as an MC in NJ. Sure enough, it came through as MC in PA. Bill of sale and signed title and I walked out of the DMV with a title, registration and a plate. Couldn't be happier. Now to plan my dual sport setup and supermoto wheels.

I put new stainless steel bolts on the ends of the exhaust. I tried to put new bolts on the kick stand and stripped out the bottom bolt. Hopefully I can slide the chain tensioner over with a washer to make the bolt for the kick stand go through that way.Its a real bich not having a kick stand.I was thinking of having it welded to the frame,no more bolts.

Not being the most bike technical person in the world, I am quite pleased that I addressed my hard starting issue by measuring and adjusting the valves.

Both Exhaust and 1 of the Intake cam clearances were too tight, so I bought a Hot Cams kit and put in smaller shims.

 

Not a real big deal job to most people, but it starts and runs like a champ and more importantly, I'm not intimidated by the prospect of doing it again.

Man, you always take the best pics, how come you took the trials tire off?

thanks... I found that you can as good of traction with a knobby + tubliss at 2-3psi.. and don't have to worry about flats all the time.

      Just bought a new 2017 yz250fx, has about 2 hours on it and ive already done an oil change, and overall made sure everything is in good condition.
      I rode for about an hour last Saturday around a farm and than stopped to turn off the bike, about 20 minutes later I came back and started it up and now every time I rev it/ blip the throttle the bike just shuts off.
      Not only do I want to fix this so i can ride my NEW bike, I am very pissed because its brand new and ive done nothing wrong to it.
      Any help is much appreciated

      So apparently some mx fcr carbs have removable valve seats and some dont. I didnt know this and just thought mine was really stuck in there so i drilled it out. Was going to replace it anyway. But it turns out that i have the model that is not suppose to have the valve seat removed. or so i think. Is anyone aware of this difference between the same carb. Do you know where i can get another valve seat? its off a 2003 yz450f

      Hey all, recently getting into motocross again and bought a used bike from a kid who lacked on the maintenance side of things for the bike. What I have found / believe is happening is oil is leaking out of the cylinder head breather tube. Before going on my first ride with the bike I had a respectable amount of oil right in the middle of the checkered oil marks on the dip sticks. However after about 5 hours riding I checked the oil to find that it was barely even on the dip stick. I know there has been oil leaking out of the breather but could have been caused because an overflow on the oil change from the kid. I mean the bike is 8 years old maybe it is time for some top end work. On that note would a person change out the piston regardless of condition along with the rings? Is it possible the rings are just not positioned right? I would definitely do the valves while I have the bike open anyways.
       
      Any info would be greatly appreciated I just find it odd that it took 5 hours to drain, reading through other posts some guys were having puddles of oil after 20 minuets of running time.
