Here is a 450 now !!!






My Christmas gift from 2013 Wife of the year! Haven't even rode the thing yet, too much snow up here. Got my numbers on and hand guards. Slowly adding parts as I wait by the door for the postman everyday...

Numbers showed this week. Ordered dr.d radiator lowering kit and full exhaust

Some plugs and axle blocks are coming too.





Been to cold to really take it out yet

Hammerhead engine plugs


New to the party...


Picked up it from the dealer, straight to the track. Break-in complete and now for the tear down to grease it up, change the oil, and all the other fun necessities that go with a new bike.

Came from a '12 KX450, bought it after riding a '13 for a few weeks, and so glad to be back on Yamaha(this makes #6 since I started riding).

Got my new 2014 yesterday evening! broke it in last night and put another 4 hours on it today! Really like the bike so far, just sold my 2010 ktm 250 sx to get it. 


Got a couple quick questions for you guys tho


1.  Im using yamalube 10w 40, i changed it after the first hour and again at 5. each time the oil was really dark, i know its new but i wouldnt think it would break down that fast. and it isnt even synthetic, so isnt there better options out there?


2.  I really found the front end deflecting off rocks and everything in the trails and the front wanted to push a lot when turning, especially in sand.  when i got home i turned all the clickers out 2 more clicks to soften it up as im only 155 pounds.  What should the static and race sage be? maybe this could help me out and i heard some people raise the forks a little bit in the triple clamps.


anyway, enough talking, heres some pics!
