I would make sure your tps sensor is correctly set to begin with regardless of what ecu you want to run. Maybe have tokyo mods do some work on the vortex one.

Theres tons of people who get more life out of their engines yes. That doesnt mean its the rule for everyone. After 40-50 hours your luck goes way down and thats a fact. Esp with cheap cast pistons.

40-50 hours max on a 250+ cc 2 stroke piston man. Thats why it broke.

Something to think about if youre dead set on a kx, is the 2021 is going to have estart and hydraulic clutch. Might be worth waiting on if youre not in a hurry. Its snowy here so id absolutely wait if i were in your shoes

Thanks guys but i fixed the issue. Took it to a guy who is better with carbs than i am. All he had to do was rejet it i guess.

Sounds like a valve issue to me. Check clearances and do a leakdown.

Added reply in a thread 2020 YZ250f advice 11/18/2019 10:17 AM

There seems to be issues with stuff getting past the air filter on the yamahas. Not sure if its an issue on the 2020 but something to keep an eye on.

Added reply in a thread POLL - Has MX riding had an effect on your daily driving habits and how so? 11/17/2019 7:56 PM

I accelerate hard and brake hard because thats what i do on bikes. I also get extremely annoyed at slow drivers or people who cant drive in snow. Those skills all stemmed from riding in dirt.

Yes rebuild top to bottom. You have aluminum pieces everywhere in there. Its going to act as sand paper until it wears out every bearing or worse causes even more catastrophic damage.

X2 on dowel pin.

Purple power or simple green for in your house. Using hot water makes a big difference too. I use a 5 gal bucket with hot water and it does the trick. They make submergible heaters if you want a heated tank without having to fill it every time

AC beating tomac and roczen at the test tracks. Jk no idea.

Added reply in a thread Holy kaboom 11/16/2019 2:40 PM

Casting flaw and theyre replacing it with another cast piston.. Cast aluminum is prone to cracking in the first place in high load situations.

Just buy aftermarket. The oems dont make their own plastics.
