First call the shop that did the work if they are worth anything they will help you out.
After i build a motor it always has a valve adj. after it has ran for a few i like to do it around 100 miles this lets everything find its groove if you will. Good luck

Pulsar 220 Bike emits little smoke even after Rebuild, how do I fix?

Did you clean the bore REALLY REALLY good with hot soapy water and a brush before assembly? Need to remove all the grit from the honing process. Test by rubbing hard with a white cloth.It MUST still be white after rubbing. If not then clean it again. It will wear out the rings quickly if it's not right. Solvent will not clean it properly.

I have a 1999 yz 125. i just put new piston and rings in it an they say after a fresh rebuild you do whats called the break in period. an what i am asking is what do i do for the break in? how do you do...

hi, break in period is comonly known as running the bike in, if you have only replaced the piston and rings, and not had the cylinder rebored, then take it easy for a couple of tanks of fuel while the rings bed in, when the cylinder is rebored we run in the machine as the clearences between the piston and cylinder are much tighter, heat seizure can occure when the break in period is ignored. hope this helps , paul

My Crf has recently started smoking an also harder than normal to start unless choked, only thing I've recently done is changed the spark plug but it still has plenty of power an actually seems snappyier ...

You are probably due for a top end rebuild. Your owners manual recommends a rebuild after several moto's or probably at least twice a year. Most riders can not afford that. I am guessing it may have been a couple of years since your last top end over haul (hone or bore,piston,rings,valve stem seals, gaskets,etc).

Honda cb100 motor sezied can i rebore and fit larger piston and ifso what. Thanks

in adition to the above coment, which i must say is spot on, the posability of a used barel and piston if a new piston is not available could be worth considering, other things you may wish to check on that particular engine is camshaft seizure, in a uk bike it runs directly in the machined surface of the cylinder head, oil failure due to blocked oil filter has severe consequenses, located on the l/h side of the engine under a 22 or 24mm spaner head cap just below the gear change lever, this is a washable filter retained by a cap and spring, correct replacment is inperitive. are you located in UK? HOPE THIS HELPS YOU

My aprilia Sr 125 will not start it's bin sat for about year and my mates house. and my kick start is not turning when i kick it. Help. Any ideas. Everything else is fine the battery is carb is fuel pipe...

If the kick-start wont turn then it may well be seized, partially seized if you are lucky.
Spray some p.t.f.e. based lubricant down the spark plug hole, leave for 20 mins, then ease kick-start down.
If this has no effect then it will need a top-end rebuild ( this could mean just piston rings, but it may well need a new piston & rebore)

Ride safe
Please mark this as very helpful (if it has been!!)

125 twin recent rebore 1000 miles ago one exhaust

Its a little hard to tell without seeing the exhaust color.Black is oil.brown is fuel.If the bad cyl. still has a good plug it may not be oil.Check the smoky exhaust carby.It may be you do not have complete firing on the bad cyl.MAYBE.Does the bike run well once you get the revs up under load?Check for inlet leaks that may change the fuel mixture on the suss. cyl.There is a few more things but start at these things 1st.After a complete rebuild,these problems do start.I hope this helps
