What did you do to your YZ450FX today?

Bar risers?

Anyone try the Fastway 2 inch risers on their YZ450FX yet, wondering if all the cables will be long enough?

Why would you want 2" risers. I'm 6'5" and run scotts submount and that's plenty of rise with stock bars.

I did a couple of mods over the last week. GYTR radiator cages, Seat Concepts seat, and Fastway hand guards. I think it turned out pretty good. image.jpegimage.jpeg

Risers.... I like the taller bars, especially for in the snow.. What is the rise on the bars with the Scott's under mount?

Just about one inch, as I recall.

I took mine out for a ride on the 3rd, and if I hadn't witnessed it for myself I probably wouldn't believe it but we rode 69.5 miles and I never ran out of fuel.  Mix of single track trails and roads to connect the trails, I never really wrang it out on the roads and the trails were mostly 2nd gear slow stuff... very impressed to get that far on 2 gallons of fuel.

Just curious, what did the Seat Concepts seat provide?   I'm finding my FX seat to be a little uncomfortable.

That's not bad. What tune are you running?

It comes with the new seat foam and the new seat cover, you can reuse the stock seat pan. I've never installed a seat cover before. It was fairly easy. Plaza Power Sports in Heber has them in stock. They recommend them to just about everyone who buys a new Yamaha. It really helped out my kidneys on rocky trails. I noticed a BIG difference from two weeks ago without the seat and this weekend with the seat riding on the same trails. Edited by crash220

 I lowered the pegs 20 mm by cutting and relocating the peg 'barrel', milled a new indexing hole on the peg bracket, then swaping the left and right brackets and springs.

Nice work!  Too bad you lose the kick stand though... any ideas to remedy that?

I want to make sure the new peg location works out (feels right) first

 

A few options

 

- cut/weld the stock stand bracket to the YZ bracket

- Pro Moto Billet YZ side stand at $150

- always ride near a wall or tree

- throw the bike 'away' into the bushes when coming to a stop

- carry a triangle stand on my back

- dig a 'burnout' hole to hold the bike up

- lean it against another bike

- mic (bike) drop

 

 

I want to get the brake pedal level right next. 

I need to be able to sit on the bike to see how things feel.

Interesting, I took my brother's 2014 ktm 300 out for about 45m single track ride. One thing I noticed is I thought his set felt more comfortable then my 450fx.

 

It takes 100 hours to break in a Yamaha seat.  These bikes are built for the long haul.

I vote for either mic drop or throw bike away as you bail off and let it ghostride (but don't turn to watch it). Most people would see that and think, "Man, that guy's a total badass."

fixed!

Don't carry a triangle stand with you. They hurt you when you crash.

Yeah, well. I stand by it.

No, no, it's a custom rubber one. Painless.

Graphics, grips, hand guards, bump seat, etc... Still a ton to do
