Default YZSKY.. (Husky CR125/Yamaha YZ125 crossbreed) won't rev past 3/4 throttle

     

Hi,

I'm a newbie (from Scotland) to the forum with a bit of a unique issue...

I picked up a 'dead' 1999 Husky CR125 relatively cheap from the breakers, it was in a complete state with virtually every bearing requiring to be replaced, missing piston, shot fork seals and a seized gearbox. Decided that I'd resurrect the poor beastie but could not get a bottom end to suit. I replaced all the swingarm bearings (including the linkage), changed the fork-seals, powder coated the frame and re-saddled it while I waited for a gearbox to turn up, but in two months I still could not get my hands on a bottom end to suit. At this point (and I nervously write this next part due to having read a recent posting from someone who had fitted a thumb throttle to a YZ250 and got shot down for being a 'radical') I cast my eyes accross the shed towards an old '96 YZ125 engine that I'd managed to aquire years ago. I looked at the two engines for a while and finally decided that I could 'crowbar' the YZ unit into the Husky frame. After spending two weeks solid in the shed at the bottom of my garden meshing cooling systems, altering engine mounts, machining new swing-arm spindle/rear engine mount bushings... I finally emerged with what I believe to be the worlds first 'YZSKY'.

The bike now looks excellent, starts first or second kick, and even rides perfectly.. until you get to about 3/4 revs, at which point it seems to top out (sounds like a chainsaw at full revs) before the power-band. I've currently got the Husky carb installed, but I have tried the YZ carb and it does exactly the same thing. I've checked the reeds (some sort of old style Boyesen Rad) and found that the secondary reed (the one that lies on top of the larger reed) is damaged. I've picked up a new Boyesen Rad cage and reeds from Ebay and I'm still waiting for them to arrive. I believe that the secondary reed is for throttle response at lower revs so I'm not convinced that it's the root of the issue.

Has anyone come accross this issue with this type of engine? Could it be the main jet?

Any input appreciated

Cheers...

Welcome to

Sounds like an interesting project bike. I'm sure you'll soon get some tech help from our saavy members. In the meantime get prepared to post some pics of that resurrected beast

Sounds creative, certainly not the norm. But I bet you have the only Yamavarna or Huskaha out there. Post them pics up.

You sound like a capable mechanic, but you ARE using the YZ ignition and pipe, right? I want to see it!

Yep, YZ CDI, Pipe, and coil. Sounds just like a YZ, but looks like a Husky. I've ordered the RAD valve and a variety of main jets to try. Can't wait to get it out on the track to confuse the hell out of everyone. Pictures on their way (as soon as I manage to bloody upload them!), at 2Mb each they're a little too large for the upload limit of 500Kb, but I'll work something out shortly...
