jug trashed.... bore it or core trade for big bore?

As some of you have surely read I seized my bike last weekend. The cylinder looks like thisIMG_5666.jpg Ouch! My question is what should I do next.... bore this cylinder 2mm over (if its able to), buy a stock piston & jug or trade up for an oversize bored jug? I dont race, so size is of no concern only price vs performance.

Please advise of any experiences good and bad with 2mm overbore compared to stock. Also please advise of any piston concerns, like which brands seem best suited to this application, etc... Any advice is appreciated.


Call Scott or Kurt @ Millinium Technologies (920)893-5595. They will give you a straight answer and will probably give you a better price than you can get anywhere else. They've done alot of work on my cylinders and I've always been happy with there work. :naughty:

There is no doubt, that the increase in jug size and increase in compression leads to lots and lots of joyful squeals. If you have to replace pump it up.

It's true that there's is no replacement for dispacement!

big bore big bore big bore :naughty:

BrandonV- send YZDAD1 a PM. He's got a sweet little setup for a 426 that is sure to make you grin- +2mm bore +2mm stroke = YZ 459.

Wiseco plus 2mm is cheaper than stock (over here anyway).

2mm stroker - is this just an offset pin, offset bush or a special crank?

How much gain does the 2mm stroker give? - I have a 426 motard - plus 2 wiseco 13.5 : 1, gas flowed head and freeflow exhaust.


John Bosson- I think the setup YZDAD1 ran was with the crank pin offset 1mm for a total change of 2mm. His son ran the bike for 2 years with the setup I described on pump gas and never had any problems with it. He told me Powroll modified his crank for him I believe. If I can get the money this summer, I'm going to send him my crank and cylinder for sure.

      Brand new, still in the packaging Lexx end cap fits the stock muffler of 2006 & 2007 YZ450f and 06-13 YZ250f. Comes with a forest service approved spark arrestor and two different size tips. Don't spend hundreds of dollars on a slip on, this tip can be quiet and forest legal or loud and make power! Also a note for WR450 guys: get this tip and find a used 06/07 YZ muffler, fits directly on 09-15 WR450. $80 shipped free to the lower 48. PM, call or text 406-223-8789

      So I have a 2008 yz450f and I would like to add some LED lights to it to make it street legal. Mainly just a headlight and a tail light and turn signals if I need to (which where I live hand signals work).
      So where I need help is getting power from the stator to a battery. Wiring from a battery to anything else I got and understand and don't need help with (but recommendations are welcome). So my questions are.
      What type of power is coming from the stator. AC or DC? Will I need a regulator or rectifier? How do I wire something from the stator to charge a battery? What would that wiring look like? Would this stator http://www.rickystator.com/product/stators/yamaha/yamaha-yz450f-35-watt-lighting-stator-assembly-06-09 work? Anything else I should know? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

      Alright so I’m new to the site so maybe this question has already been asked. I have a 2002 Yz426f and I want a new exhaust, it has the stock header and silencer and sounds amazing but I’d like a little more from it, I know I want the fmf power bomb header and am kind of undecided on the silencer, I see on fmf’s website that their silencer will add low end and slightly take from top end and the other way around but I’m looking for increases throughout rpm range. I do a lot of trail, hill climbs, jumps, and wheelies so kind of need good performance everywhere in the rpms. My question is what silencer I should get and the jetting I should get for the carb. Thanks

      2005 YZ450F, Athena Big Bore, Power Bomb, Q4.
      Ok.  Last fall after a decently hot day at the track, I noticed coolant leaking from the weep hole on my water pump after pulling into the pits.  Ordered an Athena re-seal kit, put it all back together and didn't really get a chance to ride it.  3 weeks ago, went out to the track, and after about 20 laps, it started leaking again.  Kept filling it with water to get thru the day, never ran anywhere close to dry or empty, jut a cup or 2 low.  Ordered a Hot Rods re-seal kit with bearing and also ordered a new w/p shaft.  Did it all again and got it back together, ran it, and as soon as it got to temp, it was leaking out of the weep hole again.
      So, what the heck am I missing?  I'm totally stumped on this one.  Is something wrong with my case cover?  Do I need to replace the w/p itself?  I'm feeling like I should've just ponied up for the Boysen in the first place, and now it's biting me in the butt.  Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
