I just bought a yz 125 that has a 2000 cylinder on it with a 1995 piston in it. My problem is I can't get this thing to start.It has good compression,spark ,fuel, and looks like proper timing.It acts like its going to hit and start but will not.
Eric or Rich I know you guys are the best.Do I have to run a newer piston with boost port to run with the 1038 bearing ?


I am lost on this thing please help

Thanks

i think the piston is the problem, i believe the 2000 piston has an intake window and the 95 piston does not

The piston window won't hinder the starting unless the piston is backwards. The rectangular window should face the intake side of the cylinder.
