Valve Pads?

Is there a kit I can order that includes all the valve pads that I would need to adjust my valves? I hate to open the bike up and wait for 5 to 7 business days while I get the pads. Ir should I just order 10 of each?


If they made one I would have bought it. At $5-6 a piece I doubt anyone could afford 10 or even 5 of each. I ordered 3 of one size and 2 of another from Yamaha of Troy, I guess they are changing ordering systems so I won't get the shims until next week :). Maybe some of us could start something where everyone puts up what they have and can trade them or something. Who knows.

K&L has a kit that runs about $275. Or they sell shims in 5 packs for $6.00. As little as the valves need adjusting, I think I may just order 1 size smaller than what I have in there now as they always tighten up, never loosen...

That is a major pain in the butt! Having to wait like that..

I was lucky. We have a shop down the street. I took mine out and traded them in 1:1 for the pads I needed.

Total cost to me - $0.00

      Got a break in the weather over the weekend, and was finally able to get out on a track for the first time since October.  I know I suck compared to a lot of guys (and kids for that matter), but I always have a blast twisting a grip and roosting some dirt!  Here's a raw uncut lap around the MX track at IMI Motorsports Complex in Dacono, CO.  Was a fun day despite some wind.  Also, there was a drift car club having a meet on the road course.  So, got to check out some drift car action while we were taking a break.

      Lightly used Clarke Gas Tank (model #11614) for a 2010-13 YZ450F.  Includes cap.  For fuel injected YZ450F, so needs to have fuel pump transferred over.  Rest of stock tank hardware fits perfectly.  2.8 gallon capacity, so great for desert, hare scrambles, or WORCS.  Retails for $240.
