03 Yz 450 ?

whats up guys, wondering if someone can answer some questions I had about yammies. I know someone selling a 03 yz 450(don't know if it is) for parts. how do you tell between the 426 and the 450? it has a steel frame and alum. subframe. did it come with a 39mm fcr carb? heres the numbers- 5TA1 00QH21 the carb has a TPS, but no hot start. it runs but I have no info on the bike. will any of these parts fit on a 2000 WR 400? because I have a plate on that to ride the streets. don't have a digital camera or I would have taken pics. any help would be great. thanks, Dave

If its an 03 it is a 450.

I don't think there will too many parts that'll fit your WR. '03 is the first year of the 450.

any special way to tell its a 450 by looking at it?

No hot start knob on the carb its a 450. 450 has the lever on the handlebar instead of the knob on the carb.

The Left Side of the Engine is a giveaway. The ignition cover is unique to the YZ450.

All '03's are 450's. Both the 426 and the 450 have aluminum subs, but the 426 had it painted. Wheels, handlebars, air and oil filters, and springs are about the only things that will fit your 400.

also look at where the oil level check is at the front of the bike. if it's small (dime size) and a little off to the left of the steering head it's a 450. if it right in front of the tank its a 426 and a bit larger (quarter size).

2001 had a blue painted subframe. 2002 was aluminum uncoated.

Well i dont know about your guys bikes, but mine says 450 stamped into the front of the engine behind the rads.

looked at it again today. it is a 450. dipstick on the left side of frame. how about the carb? did they come with a 39mm stock? thanks for the help.

did they come with a 39mm stock?

Yep 39's stock

yea I meant dipstick, not "oil level maintance device" ha ha

      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!
