If you put a extra master link on a spot on your bike it can save you a lot of trouble out on the trail. I like to put mine around the rear brake rod , but anywere will do.

We just got this email from Renthal:
Would it be possible for you to post a sticky under the Yamaha Dual Sport
forum about this bike and the sprocket fitment? We have been getting many
calls regarding this and I figured this would help the members out.
We just received all the OEM parts from Yamaha and can confirm the front
sprocket is the same as the YZ/WR250F from 01-08 and the though the rear
sprocket has different fixing holes, it is the same dimensions as the
current YZ/WR250/450''s. If you want to mount up a YZ sprocket to this bike,
all you have to do is buy the tapered YZ sprocket bolts since the stock
sprocket uses a non tapered bolt.
We hope you find this information helpful. We can gladly set you up with the right sprockets, front or rear, steel or aluminum.
Please check out our sprockets here:
Here are some choices for tapered style sprocket bolts:
I like riding tight trails. But right now my 08 450EXC-R has 15 tooth front sprocket and 45 tooth rear sprocket. It is just to high geared for tight trails on the westside of Washigton. Heck, doing 50 mph on the road it lugs a little in 5th gear and you can not even use 6th doing 50 mph. Just wondering what other people with these bikes are using for sprockets for the trails?.

Anyone who has had a DR650 gearbox let go can you tell me...
1. Year of bike.
Just trying to see if there's anything in common or something that can be done to prevent this happening to anyone else.
I ride a 50/50 mix of mx tracks and WORCS like course I have set up near my house. The WORCS course is near a riverbed with very course sand but I mostly ride on the dirt. I want a chain with the least amount of rolling resistance but still reliable. I am considering a Sidewinger Ti II chain but I havent found any in depth reviews on the chain. Will the Sidewinder 16,000 tensile strength 520 chain without oring hold up equal or better than a quality oring? IM pretty sure I have narrowed it down to the DID VM Xring or the Sidewinder but cant decide. any other options are welcome.
