Hey, i was taking off my jug on my 2001 yz125, its all going good and i got the jug free and was lifting it off, but came to realize that the dowel pin got stuck in the bottom of the jug, making it too long to take off because if I try to pull the jug further off to remove it, it hits the frame. Basically, the studs are too long to clear the dowel pin before the powervalve cover hits the frame I can include pictures if people are willing to help me solve my issue thanks

Spray some Pb blaster on all dowel pins and remove them. Is your cylinder head off the jug? If it isnt then remove it. Is your fuel tank off? The more goodies you remove, the easier it becomes. Have a buddy hold the jug and you take a pair of needle nose pliers and pull the dowels out, and you should be good to go! 125051715.jpg

Awesome, awesome! I owned a 1984 yz-125, and a really fun 1986, I also had a 76 yz-100 which was bad to the bone! And of course a really 1983 yz-100k right out of the crate. Fun bike also. I rode a 84 It-490 and it was one wild machine, with an odd powerband, it probably because I mostly ride or have ridden MX bikes. Keep us updated on your Yz's progress. 037-244x150.jpg
