Definately going to need a new chain by the looks of things! Has the engine got good compression with no rattles? You definitely don't want to get it back on the road then?

hi i have only had the engine started once theres no kick just electric start. when i got ithe bike and started it, it was high revving and the exhaust glowed red so i shut it off quick. i have ordered a few parts which i collect monday the bike was blowing out exhaust as there was no gasket so i have ordered a gasket and also ordered a new (rubber seal that sits between carb and engine) as it was badly damaged. and i have got carb off and cleaned pilot jet as this was completely blocked and carb was very dirty.

so not in work for two weeks so probly get it put back together with new parts tuesday new fuel and new spark plug in then see if it runs any better.

id of liked to of got it back on the road but i think may cost an arm and a legg so may just keep for the enduro tracks.

Long old process isn't it. May well cost a few quid yeah. Would be nice to see it with some side panels, fork gaitors, tank respray and some hand guards etc. Considering you only paid 200 for it perhaps it is worth buying the items for it??...I suppose its worth seeing how well it runs first. Did you raise the needle to allow for your FMF pipe?

I extracted this from the rebuilding your carb sticky, it may help,

Removing the carburetor slide
First remove the four Philips head retaining screws from the top cover...

Now remove the throttle shaft retaining screw...

Remove the accelerator pump lever arm retaining screw from the side of the carb.

You can now remove the slide retaining screws by lifting the slide up until in the correct position to do so...

Replacing the needle set
First thing to do is buy the part....


Un-clip the plastic needle holder & spring.
Now undo the cir-clip & put the new one on.
Standard setting is the middle setting...


Now install locking washer making sure it goes in it's locking position...
Fit the plastic needle holder making sure that the new spring goes on first.

Put the needle in & fit the slider arm with the two screws making sure that the cut-out in the slide goes to the back of the carb
