Today I figured I would learn how to clean my carburetor. Watched a few vids this week on how to, and felt prepared. As I began taking apart the carb, I had a video playing in case I was confused. Took apart, cleaned, assembled, and got my XR70's back together, no one to the CRF80. I took the carb apart, pretty clean still but I cleaned it anyway. I put it back together. I plugged the back up vent and the gas line into the wrong port (switched spots), but the bike still ran. Fgured out what I had done wrong, fixed the issue so now gas wasn't pouring out of the drainage tube. Then I noticed I was having more issues. The bike wouldn't start. I went back to the throttle line which enters the carb, and noticed there was a brass colored V clip in there, looked as it had no purpose but I left it. I then redid the carb, and the bike started, but the throttle was sticking. I went back, took out that brass V clip and it the throttle doesn't stick. Now to the current issue: When I get the bike started (will only start on and stay on if choked) the throttle pulls and reacts fine, but when I release it, it takes a second or two for the cable to actually release. I believe there is some correlation to the brown clip. PLEASE HELP, REALLY NEED THIS BIKE BACK RUNNING FOR OUR TRIP NEXT WEEKEND!
I've been in the hospital for two months. During those two months I was bed bound so I didn't move so I got really weak. After that they made me go to physical therapy for 2 and a half weeks. I was discharged two days ago. I'm a 21 year old male. I was burned 57 percent of my body with 3rd and 2nd degree burns on both my legs, my back, butt, and right arm. Mainly the back of the areas are burned but the front isn't as bad as the back. Anyways, I had to learn how to walk again and as I see my progress, I can't help but wonder will I ever be able to ride again? My strength is coming back slowly but I still feel stiff and very weak. Has anyone else on this board gone through this? I would hate to give up on riding due to this. No smart ass comments please and no rude answers. Thank you!
What's going on guys, so I'm making my ssr 125 into a stunt bike, i put rear pegs on and I need to make a rear handbrake setup, I was thinking of buying a front brake setup and disconnecting the hose with the banjo bolts and buying a longer hose, then making a bracket to mount the caliper on, would that work? does anyone have a setup that they know forsure works that won't cost an arm and a leg?
Well, I did everything that I could, but it turns out that I am just not able to afford to keep my bike. This is truly a sad time for me and now I'm trying to recoup some money on all of these parts I had bought. From my understanding, the classified section of the forum is down? I'm looking for a good way to post what I have for sale. Parts include: Full FMF exhaust with the megabomb mid-pipe, EJK tuner, and Racetech Suspension kit (Gold Valves, Spring kit, and rear shock) which was never installed. I weigh 165lbs and had the rear shock set up for enduro style riding. I will post pics of everything when I get home along with rough prices on everything that I have. I just wanted to put this info out there, and to see where the most appropriate place to post would be. Thanks in advance for any information that you can give me, and feel free to PM me if you want to make an offer on anything before I post again.
