I have heard about the engine braking with a four stroke and was wondering how that might affect you on a jump. My 125 is nice bc I can just move it around under me very easily for example scrubbing. I would imagine that would not be so easy with a heavy ... more »

I'm considering buying a new (2016 or 2017) 250f in the spring. I grew up racing from 8yo until 16yo, and recently started riding again on a yz125. The 125 is a blast and will probably always keep it around for when I get the urge but I want something ... more »

So went through the carb again. Blew the whole thing out and took it all apart. I ended up replacing the needle valve seat for the float. The o-ring must have been no good anymore because the old one set in with no resistance and even had a small amount ... more »

theonlinelegend haha yeah I thought that right after. Didn't know it would though until it did it the second time. So needless to say I just went in circles on flat ground for a bit. I have boyesen power reeds in it.

Thanks for the replies. I really do appreciate the input gents. As for the plug, when I took it out it looked a little wet but not too bad. I've pulled way worse out when it was running like a top and just running rich. I'm sure that doesn't still mean ... more »

Ok when it comes to electronics I'm not so good but I have messed with a stator on a street bike before. I know you can test a stator, I'm assuming you can test the cdi as well?

Paw paw, I don't really hear anything when I take the fuel cap off. Just hear it when the bike is on the stand. Should I maybe get rid of the plastic piece on the hose? Sorry don't know correct terminology for that little thing. I will check the carb ... more »

Forgot to mention this. The cover to the power valves had one of the screws back out all the way and was just hanging there. There has been a good bit of oil/sploog coming from it. So I thought maybe it was sucking air so tightened that best I could ... more »

I've adjusted the tab on the float a couple times now and I've gone pretty far with it with no changes. I started to wonder about the gas cap since it will be sitting on the stand and I can sometimes hear a gurgling sound coming from it like it's releaseing ... more »

Alright, so I'm not the most mechanically inclined but I somewhat know my way around 2 strokes. I have a 2002 yz125 that will start and run pretty crisp for about 1-2 minutes on the stand, then I put in first, take off and before I can even make it a ... more »
