Cyberdos, those are amazing pics!!

The one of Brad going away and the white Toyo p/u in the background is definitely front page material. You, sir, have photog skills.

Thanks. io really like that one too. I wish the pickup wasn't there. Maybe I should photoshop it out of the pic.
And these are taken with an old point and shoot. If I had a good DSLR then I could really do some damage.

Oh well. Tires are more important.

Bluhduh Trouble shooting the YZ (after action review)

After the Montana Mt ride went to pot for my little YZ this weekend. I had to abandon her in the bushes

When all was said and done IBriding and I went back to do the recovery and get her home.

(sorry, I suck at selfies)


After putting off all thoughts of the bike for a few days, because every time I'd go near the little ringer my poor wallet would start cringing and I'd back off. I finally bit the bullet today and started tearing her apart to try find the problem.



I think I see the problem!!



Yup! That'll do it



1 x split piston ring and a piston that's beat to s#!t by a piece of the ring that came off and tore up the side on it's way out the exhaust. I'm just glad it didn't damage the cylinder or head in the process

New clutch cable, piston, ring, big end bearing and gasket get here tomorrow so hopefully I'll have her running good as new by the weekend
