  1. No thats why I was thinking about using one of them thred insert kits
  2. Thats what we tried to do but still wouldn't come out. We did get the bolt drilled and was thinking of using one of them thred insert kits How difficult do you think it would be to put a Honda or Suzuki 300 or 400 motor on it
  3. Yea I know i was all over eBay and the web looking and did not like the prices I was seeing
  4. I apologise for not getting back sooner things are hectic to say the least. I was going to just sell the old Mojave but my son likes it and enjoys being in the garage tinkering too. But to answer your question we were buying small parts as we could to fix it up since we are now keeping it. We were going to change out the valves and one of the bolts that hold the rocker arsm down broke off So now he is bummed out. Bc even with doing our small repairs he was able to ride it a little bit
  5. Anyone know if someone selling top-end for a Mojave 250 at a reasonable price. Could really use the cylinder head.
  6. Ok thanks. I'm going to go buy one tomorrow and install it. I will let you know how I make out. You have been a huge help throughout this project. And I really do appreciate it
  7. Yes it is 125. But I was wondering why, or what would cause it to run good with both the starter and main jet set the same. I use just doing trial and err just to if it would fix it and it cleaned up with both of them Jets set the same, 125.
  8. So I have a question about changing my jetting. I'm not real sure what I need to change to or what ones I need to change. What I can say is it runs the best when I have the starter jet and the main jet around the same size, which is I believe # "125 or 135. And it turned out 2 1/2 to 3 turns
  9. Its running ok. I haven't had a change to actually get out and get out and really get on it yet but it's nit getting hot. It has a small back fire not alot but enough to make you think. Abd sti cuts out a tad but I will put that on the air fuel screw
  10. So I finally went out last night and litterly started from scratch. All the way down to piston and rings just to see if there is a chance I fucked something up.. I got it all tore down, then back together looking over everything and doing everything I could to be certain. Started it up and the same thing starts to get hot. I then took the fan off and put it on the other side of the radiator so it would help blow the cool air at the motor rather then help direct it away from the motor likeit normally does I guess, it helped a little but not much. Finally I downloaded the manual and just looked and stared until finally it clicked I had the coolent hoses switched
  11. After i checked the oil I put new oil in it. Then I tested it with just the radiator cap off not real sure what looki for but I believe the water actually moves in a circular motion. I didn't notice it moving but she when I pressed the throttle it pushed sone of it out. I then tried it with the thermostat out. I really didn't get to try it long bc of my nabiours bitching. So I will run that test a second time in an. Is there a test that can be done on the pump it's self? But I was able to turn the fuel mixture screw out 2 turns with it out and it ran ok. It didn't feel like it wanted to die when put in gear and given gas
  12. I just drained the oil and it looks the normal dark color almost like a black. Whqt color discoloration am I looking for? I can send you a video of it being pored or pictures if it helps Would to much oil cause any of this
  13. The fan does work. And there is water anf coolent in it. I will check the o right now to see if it's got anything in it. Whats a good way to check if waret pump is working
  14. I was able to get out today and pole the silencer off. It didn't seem to get as read. The top-end has a soft light ticking since I've adjusted the valves. I read this is normal is this correct. But for some reason it seems to run the best when I have the air fuel mixture screw all the way in, I have already bought a rebuild kit. The only thing I didn't get was the air/fuel screw but it came with a new rubber seal and washer for it. And the other thing the spark plug wire gets so hot it feels like it may melt. When I have the air fuel screw turned 13/4 out it spits and sputters when i put it in gear and let the clutch out
  15. Well I wasn't able to get back out lastnight. Getting around to check things out now. I'm going to recheck my valve settings timing ect. I forgot to mention that the couple times I did test ride it not long after riding it would just quit shut off. I would have to wait and clean the plug. Could I just nock the insides out of the muffler rather then run it without one
