All the big 2 stroke engines will make a noticable pinging sound especially when putting around or blipping the throttle off idle. If the motor is struggling to make power there are many things to look at but i would start with fresh premium gas and recommended oil. :ride:
I remember reading where one 4T team burned through their entire motor budget after the first race, (last year i believe) when one of the bikes sucked some sand. They took what money was left and cobbled together a 2T and finished the season respectably. 2 strokes will never die and thanks to...
My wife and i purchased a 2011 Ram back in February and overall im pleased with the truck, however lately i am starting to notice several blemishes on the exterior finish of the truck. The tailgate has orange peel in the clear that looks like it was buffed out (somewhat), the chrome on the...
If it's worth putting a price on, maybe it's worth trying to fix. Otherwise if you really need the money then try to sell it as is... otherwise just give it to the kid who mows your lawn or something like that.
It looks like oil is leaking from the countershaft on my 08' Honda 450R. Never had this prob before so i assume there is an oil seal or O-ring behind the sproket thats leaking. Is this a DIY repair, if so how big a job is it to repair?
Im looking for some advise or tips on setting up suspension for a 50+ rider. Im pushing 50 now and weigh around 210lb. I ride mostly rough trail stuff but like to hit the track now and then at an int. level. I love my 08 CRF 450 but the suspension is quickly taking it's toll on my aged frame. I...
I have been thinking about the bark busters since i seem to be doing more and more trail riding, finding saw tooth busters might difficult to locate but is something i am game for making.
I found out that one of my caliper seals had bulged out and not rolled like it origionally appeared.
It would be nice to see a real circlip in there, the kind that a simple tool could remove and install but that would take all of the fun :bang: out of it...
I have learned as much about patience from working on 4strokes as i have raising teenagers, my problem is i have a short memory!
Im goona try some Pirelli's this year, the BStones work pretty well for most int. soils and would be a safe choice. My current tire is a dunlop 756, which i bought because they were cheap but dont last very long on our hard pack tracks.
Mech at the honda shop said to check the seals in the caliper and sure enough, one of the seals had appearantly "rolled" in the sealing groove and was binding one of the pistons.
New ones are pretty cheap and im getting really fast at the whole tear down/reassembly/bleeding process, im just a...
The front brake on my CRF450 doesn't want to completly release from the disk. I noticed this after replacing the piston and seals on the master cylinder. Now i have completly disassembled and cleaned the caliper, reinstalled everything and bled the system. Pads are fairly new end everything else...
