250 2006 YZ250

Thank you @timoyz for the vid with a graphic that explains things. I'm a visual kinda guy.

Thanks @PALMER84ONE for the links. Dont have time to read them all right now (just got out of family court again for the 26th time in 14 years), but I will. And its not that I dont trust you guys, but I get a lot of info, from many different sources. I tend to be picky who I listen to.

Thats awesome!


If you dont think its a relevant question I posed @Redordead89 , then what are you doing here?


Oh let’s run this freight train right off the rails....
WTF are you doing in Family court?
 
Classy Red. Real classy.
Thanks for showing your true colors.
I come here looking for information, and you attack me for asking questions, and for not just taking everything at face value. Keep in mind I trust @PALMER84ONE's advice far above many, but that dont mean others dont know just as much (sorry Gary, not cutting you down, you know I love you), but I always research things first. I like to KNOW what's up. I like to look at all avenues, and consider all opinions.
AGAIN, thanks to Timo for the video, it definitely helps expand my knowledge base.
But Red, if you want to criticize, berate, and belittle, then thats cool.
I have been called much worse, legally, by lower life forms than you, and have always come out on top, every time.
I'll take the high road, and wish you the very best in all of your endeavors.
Take care Red.
Sincerely - the dumbass.

What did you do to this chick???
Come on Mike! You of all people know, tongue punch the fart box all the way to pound town, and out comes a kid. Then all of a sudden, some woman turn psychotic, with poor me syndrome and start wanting another type of tongue punch. And all the sympathy, and comforting in the world will not help with the sharing of the child.
 
Sorry Brad, went a bit too far there :pout::sorry:
No worries Red, all good, thanks for the IM. Water under the bridge. As a side note I just found out my family name (I think) originates in Scotland.

I left her abusive ass. But she truly is psychotic. Along with daddy issues, narcissistic, angry, hateful, zero empathy, will do anything to "win" or achieve her goals, no matter who she hurts (my boy, me, makes no difference) etc...

So back to the YZ - I cant just run 95 octane or higher like the manual says? Is this a design flaw?
We are heating up here so I probably will have some down time coming up, but I'd like to get at least another month of riding her (hehe) before I tear her down. I only have 6 hours on her now, and I'm just starting to get used to her.

You can. Run 50/50 race and pump. Go up one on the main and the pilot. It will be a little sluggish and still detonate but not as bad.
That’s a head with detonation issues.

Done.
The bike runs amazing. I've never been happier. It's nearly too fast...actually, it is too fast. But my cornering sucks so...
Just so we are clear, “THIS IS NOT A FIX and you still have to CUT THE HEAD”. Right?
The overall end result is not good period.
You will have serious head damage, serious piston damage and a good amount of cylinder damage. These pics are from an 06 yz.

Yes, I will have the head cut. I'll send it to the guy in Utah. I can ride the kiddo's YZ125 in the meantime. Maybe even rip that carb back off the KX250 and go through it again
And just for shits and giggles, I'm going to try out the bore-scope doohickey I bought awhile back and take a peek inside the cylinder.
