@calum I'm not fan of 4-strokes either, i love the crisp sound of a 2-stroke motorcross over anything, the pipes looks 10 times better than the 4strokers aswell. 450's are sick tho, and in fact for mx the 4-strokes have a benefit because of the powerband being so consistent in a way.
My friend put a leovince exhaust on his mt125, it looked a lot slimmer and sounded better than the stock one. Sounds nice in the beginning but after listening to it for a while it turns into being annoying :P.
@sgt-robuck-5 doesn't work like that. Air pushes coolant up in the expansion tank filling it and then spits out on the road. Then returns to normal once cool. Just open the radiator cap and bleed it, problem solved.
On my first DT after several days of trying to remove the bolt, I eventually got it to budge by doing a continuous heat cycle on it, and going at it with a club hammer and drift. When you thinks it got to be hot enough by now...give it another couple of minutes with the blow torch.
@oldman well it looked 40 years old and was visually worn out looked well used if I tried to ride the bike to set off I’d have to redline and ride the clutch then soon as I shift out of 2nd the bike would lose all power and come to a stop then would bog and stutter it seems better with the carb on the garden not tested the street yet
Removing the snorkel affects the jetting, so jet accordingly. It can also decrese the low end a bit, as theres not much velocity through the carb when you whack the throttle open at low speed.
IMO the airbox seems pretty restrictive, so removing the snorkel adds tons of air.
You can be both rich and lean, as in lean in the midrange, and rich on the mainjet, or the other way around.
You guys have given me a lot to work with...
No, I definitely won't be riding it anywhere when it's running like this.
I'll print off this whole thread and show it to my friend who knows a lot more about bikes than me...
