Overheating is never a good thing the piston probably melted and you may have seized the bearings on the crank and ruined the seals aswell causing any compression to blow thru the case and blowing the tranny fluid out of the tube.. best thing is to take the whole things apart and carefully inspect every part and replace anything worn or questionable. better safe then sorry...,,

I just changed the hydraulic master cyl and bleed the clutch over a few days with 1/2 bottle of DOT-4. The bike starts fine in neutral but locks up when put into gear. How do I get the clutch plates un...


It sounds very much like you have still got air in the system, have you tried bleeding the system with individual strokes Eg: bleed tube on nipple going into a glass jar with some fluid in the bottom of it. Release the bleed nipple operate the clutch, keeping the clutch gripped tighten the bleed nipple. release the clutch then open the nipple and grip the clutch again then close the nipple release the clutch etc etc until there is no bubbles appearing in the fluid in the jar. Remember you can compress air and so any air that is in the system will compress instead of displacing the fluid. Fluid cannot be compressed therefore it must be displaced, so no air in the system then displacement occurs. Failing that release the outflow from the MC just enough for fluid to escape then wrapping a cloth around the outflow pipe to avoid fluid dripping on paintwork, pull the clutch then tighten the outflow pipe, release it once again and pull the clutch then tighten the pipe again when you feel sure there is no air in the MC making sure the outflow pipe is tightened then move down to the slave cyl and bleed as describediously prev

2010 YZ250 2 stroke Overheating - the bike is used for extreme enduro riding. I have recently found that it is overheating very easily. Any idea what can be causing this?


Sounds like an overly lean condition accompanied by a high compression situation. Perhaps the bloke that owned the bike before you had the head cut to increase compression. In this case, you could either replace the head or run high octane fuel.

Also - look at the water pump condition - seals and the drive gear. The seals might be leaking if your oil is discolored and the gear that drives the impeller has been known to shed teeth over long periods of time. It is also quite possible that the bearing is shot.

Also check to make sure the head pipe does not have any leaks near the cylinder.

here goes oil bag takes 2.8 with new filter Harley says 3 but that will overfill. Primary takes Harley Primary and trannie Oil primary takes 32 oz or one bottle...trannie takes between 20 and 24 oz. I always put in 20 oz and thqt will work fine...make sure your bike is up to operating temp when draining your oil so it all flows.
