had a quick lock at the new timber trail roads.

 

I have a problem, a quick twist of the throttle and the engine dies for a short while.

 

I have JD jetting kit, i have opened up the exhaust and airbox. It was fine this winter, but now when its warmer meaby i need to turn in the fuel screw?

Its about 1½ twist out.

 

I put in the recommended jetting kit.

 

im also thinking of getting a full YZ exhaust, is it loud? Is it worth it?

I was under the impression that steel and aluminum frame tanks are significantly different, and not easy to swap. Then again, 400/426 can swap on 450 plastics if they make some adapters so it may be possible.

I don't think the petcock bolts to anything other than the tank so I'm not sure how it would make anything else not line up.

I installed a 2 inch frogskinz on my airbox for better breathing. I run these on my

Snowmobiles to get engine heat out of the cowel to save belts. Amazing product, no moisture allowed through but air is

Just bought a wr426 a few weeks ago. Already i got sick of the paint wear and chipping from boots on the frame of the bike. So "rhino lined"

the parts that were getting the most contact with boots. I did this with a roll of tape i found on amazon originally to put on steps getting into cars. It is the texture of truck bed liner. after applying it i heated it up to make sure it was on there good and it has held up to my pressure washer perfectly since. i also like the black color it adds to the bike

New head gasket, powdercoated both sidecases while the engine was out.

Looks a little rich so we're dialing back the jetting a bit.

Took it for a little shakedown ride after all the recent changes. No problems, but it does pop a lot on deceleration, despite the lack of AIS.

I will keep you updated on how they perform and wear. I do 90% off-road riding so hopefully they hold up for a while

Did a little practice until I got too wet and cold, then cleaned it up and did all new graphics and jewelry.

      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.

      Nice used vintage Don Vesco desert fuel tank for the Yamaha TT/XT500's. Removed from a '79 so may not fit the earlier models. In great shape, not sun-baked, Vesco petcock, Preston Petty cap and all mounting hardware included. Price is OBO plus shipping.

      Selling my immaculate 2016.5 KTM 250SXF Factory Edition with only 9.6hrs on it since new. Has been vet ridden and cared for. I have a clean title in hand for the bike. Bike has the following...
       -SMPro Platinum wheelset and new Dunlop MS3 tires with only a few rides on them ($1000 wheelset)
       -D.I.D ERT2 chain only a few rides
       -Orange Renthal sprocket, and 13T countershaft sprocket only a few rides
       -Mapped by Tokyo Mods for U4.4 (still have standard map also for pump gas)
       -WP AER 48mm air forks
       - FMF 4.1 titanium slip on muffler
       Bike will come with stock header pipe but still have the FMF factory Titanium slip on. Will also take off the titanium bolts and Renthal bars and put back on the stock ones. Will aslo come with triangle stand, manual, clean title, extra twin air filter, 14T countershaft sprocket, WP air pump for the forks, half a can of U4.4 fuel, and KTM tool kit. NO TRADES. NO FINANCING. NO LOWBALLERS. Bike is in showroom condition and the Factory Editions are very hard to find used in this kind of shape or new. $6800 price is FIRM.

      I added skateboard grip tape to the frame by my pegs and on the subframe for extra grip.

      I just ordered a piston kit for my 1998 yz80, and it does not fit into my cylinder. I can't really remember if its a 47.5 mm or 47, i'm pretty sure it's a 47.5 but it just does not fit into my cylinder. My cylinder does have a big groove in it, so do I need a new cylinder for it to fit, or a new piston? Please respond ASAP!
