Valve issues overall for '05?

Recommended Posts

I would really like to know if they addressed the valve issues at all for '05. I am thinking of buying one but this really concerns me. Maybe we can tell something from part numbers. The intake valve issue? the oil groove issue? What about the oil screens that require the cases to be split? Any changes in these things for '05?

I am kind of intrigued by the smaller, less top-heavy feel of the RMZ. I am sure the new Yamaha's ergo's are a lot better than my '02 though.

The cases don't have to be split very often at all. Once a year is more than plenty if you keep your oil clean. If you don't rev the bike really high it won't develop valve problems. The only thing they did was (that i know of for sure) fix the cooling.
