  1. I keep choke on for about 5 mins, adjust idle thumb screw on carb so she revs about 2k rpm Choke off the adjust idle back to 1.5k rpm... Sometimes they meff a little blip of throttle after turning choke off. Ken
  2. I get this on my dtr, early in morning during the colder days I can ride my bike for a few foot in gear with clutch in-little blip of throttle gets them plates slipping Ken
  3. That's the shizzle right there!! Don't drink to much you will be likely to pee a strange colour and run around In circles a lot!!' You can invest in a bottle of tyre gunk that sits in your inner tube waiting for puncture then cloggs it up good stuff Ken
  4. I've used it on a tube tyre pal done the job got me home and it does say not suitable for tube tyres you are correct. Green Monster energy drink and mars bars is my pick me up and rive on food-!!! Ken
  5. It's instant puncture repair stuff, it pumps the tyre up aswell.... Only use as a last resort as its horrible stuff. Ken
  6. Waterproof over trousers, mobile phone, spark plug,bottle of water, tyre weld,adjustable spanner,screw drivers and a wank mag!!!! That's all I take Ken
  7. Norton security is a resource hog and an interfering bastard of a security program I've built pc's and fixed them for years, I could make £30 For fixing a pc because someone has installed norton and there pc runs like a bag of shit!!!! (Shops charge £60+) Ken
  8. So it was already clean? Or have you just cleaned it? Ken
  9. From cold (on a morning) 2 soft kicks with choke idle for less than 5 mins on choke Warm day 1 soft kick with a little choke, idle with choke for less than 2 mins I too can also start mine with my hand but I punched the footrest with no gloves on one day so I don't do that no more lol Ken
  10. Just stopped using that castrol stuff 1 bottle before!! Good heads up though Ken
  11. Keep the plastic expansion chamber inplace! Take out your powervalve it might be coked up and need cleaning' Ken
  12. You should get between £1k - £1.5k for it Easy Ken
  13. I've bought a cheap one (not from Aldi) wasn't the best quality so I invested in a dremel, never looked back! Ken
  14. I don't know what I put in mine its just the green one and not the black lol Ken
  15. Yz 125 is a decent start! Friend of mine is learning on one and my dtr can't get anywhere near the dam thing...... Ken
  16. Iridium plugs is all I buy there good quality and the central electrode is thinner and kinda goes to a point I paid just under £20 for 2 Just don't buy from china/hong kong as there is a greater chance to be shite! Ken
  17. Are you talking about the plastic expansion chamber that fits to the carb inlet manifold?? If so there is no real benefit from detaching it as it isn't restrictive but does serve a purpose I can't remember what it does but helps the bike run smooth Ken

    This forum shows perfect on the iPhone I can't grumble!! Ken
  19. Standard airbox is fine, you change filters you will have to adjust carb to compensate for it-if your dt can't suck enough air through the box you will be able to tell besides its better to have an enclosed filter for them muddy occasions/deep puddles etc Personally I would buy the standard sprocket and chain kit that should help you no ends.... Ken
  20. Pal at work has one but doesn't look half as nice as that one!! Plenty of torque and very comfortable. Nice bike Ken
  21. Sounds like it, bet there is a 17tooth on the front rather than 16t... I had a 17 on mine but I found the last 2 gears even more useless, coming to hills was a nightmare aswell didn't pull as good as the 16t sprocket-got 16t on mine now and I can pull 60mph+ uphill no problem. Ken
  22. Happened to me coming back from work going up hill, puts a downer on things... Strange feeling having the rear tyre flopping about aswell. Ken
  23. If it's doing 70mph in 4th you should be happy mine tops out at 60mph in 4th and 75mph in 6th.. I find there isn't much in last 2 gears especially 6th I can only get away with 6th either on the flat or down hill.... If you can get your dt past 60mph with ease then you are fully derestricted, while my Reed switch was in place I would loose a lot of power and struggled to get to 50 never mind touching 70mph Cheers Ken
