JE 13.5-1 HC piston

08's as I got the 2 of them for less than the price of one new one from a TT'er.

I was just planning on getting an intake untill I found this deal. So I figure I can try it first with both and if I have E-start issues switch over to just the intake.

I'm hoping though that the HC piston will raise compression enough that the e-start will work :busted:

Thats a thought :busted:

BTW I was under the impression that all the power gains came from the exhaust cam NOT the intake???

Well according to motor builders SJMC Don knows the intake cam + HC piston is the hot ticket in the WR with no e-start issues.

In the August DB LA Sleeve also built a WR with just intake + HC and some head porting and was amazed with the power. They claimed as well that good gains could be realized with just the intake swap.

Interesting...Are you going to be able to run pump gas with the HC piston?

Everyone says pump, but you never really know do you......

This was a big issue for me untill I found out yesterday you can now get race gas in my little town :busted:

I figure worst case scenario I will have to use 1 part race gas to 2 parts 91 pump.

Obviously would be a pain on long dualsports :thumbsup:

I heard that :busted:

But then again, I have run some nasty Mexican gas in Baja and NEVER had an issue.

They seem to be pretty tolerant stock. I know I've had to run 87 before and had no issues.

When I had my old Husaberg that needed a minimum of 95 I used to have to carry a bottle of octane booster around when I went Dual Sporting :thumbsup:

Over the last couple of days...

New set of dunlops. New front wheel bearings (that sucked). New mylers radiators. They are awesome. New Unabiker guards. Replaced timing chain. Engine is much quieter now. Cam cap bolt came out with the threads attached!!!. Fixed that. Found out that the '03 and the '04 use a different flywheel puller. that sucked. New Pro taper woods high and pro taper upper triple.

Set it for YZ timing. Wouldn't start. Oh yeah, turns out this was actually an '03 bike. Fixed that.

Ran it about 40 miles and didn't take a soil sample. A good week.

      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)

      -FMF powercore 4 with silent core/spark arrestor. I've got the stock spark arrestor as well. Racing compliant!
      -Boano racing billet brake pedal with brake tip
      -FJ Fasst co. brake clevis
      -Billet chain blocks
      -upgraded steel oil pump gears- the plastic stock ones are prone to failure

      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?

      VERY low hrs and easy riding  - of course it runs great
      Has both Electric Start and kick start backup (also has Pig tails for battery tender installed)
      BBR Alum. Frame cradle with skid plate (Over $150 and protects the bike – Top of the line)
      Fisher Fab House Chain guide (Factory one is known to be an issue so I replaced it with a top of the line guide – runs about $50)
      Have title in hand
      Selling for ONLY $2000 WITH the extras!!!! (yes, the price is firm and we only accept cash - no shippers or scammers...)
       
      Only reason I am selling is I want to look into buying a trials bike and don’t really need two dirtbikes.

      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.
