I finally got the bike out on the trail, the trails were pretty wet so the sumo fender didn't last long before I put the normal one on.

My 2009 YZ450F...got it a little over a week ago. Real low hours and super clean! Always been a Honda guy, but this bike screams and handles so much better than the CRF i came off of...ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1400953732.718722.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1400953743.783428.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1400953771.456189.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1400953784.721884.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1400953796.022738.jpg

This is my excellent running 2006 yz450f, my first 4 stroke bike and my first ever engine rebuild. I bought the bike late October 2013 and put it together in my basement over the winter in my spare time. I just finished it May 15th 2014 and really learned a lot! Dented the megabomb already :D "Polisport" plastics, "All Motor" graphics kit,"FX" TC4 seat cover, "MSR" lever guards, "Moose" lift straps, "Cycra" skid plate "Maxxis" IT-Desert tires, "GYTR" 9.2oz weighted flywheel, "FMF" Factory Ti exhaust with "FMF" Megabomb head pipe, "FMF" power-up jet kit, "Tusk" fuel screw, "All Balls" steering stem bearings, swing arm bearings, shock pivot bearings, wheel bearings and chain rollers, "Acerbis" chain guide block and "Polisport" slider. Completely rebuilt engine top and bottom using all new oem Yamaha parts throughout.

Picked up this Low hour (so the owner said) 08 YZ450... It was practically brand new.. a left over dealer model... I could not find anything wrong with it, it still had the stock tires, chain etc... $3300.... I could not pass this up as I was in the hunt to get back to 4 stroke racing.. I raced 4 strokes in the early 2000's... then switched to orange 2 smoke... loved it...just missed the low end grunt of 4 strokes.

 

have bought off road equipment to convert and had the suspension set up for woods.. have about 4 hours on it and LOVE it,  thanks for the posts on what to watch for..

Picked up a low hour 2009 YZ450F. Installed new tires/tubes, chain/sprockets, got the suspension serviced with new oil and seals, laced up a new rear wheel (stock was dented on 1side), greased all bearings and linkages, checked valve clearances, cleaned carb, did the o-ring mod but used safety wire instead, new grips and levers, new clutch cable (did not help clutch pull and was a waste of $), soaked clutch plates in oil for 2 days and reinstalled, changed coolant and flushed brake fluid, and I scrubbed on all aluminum surfaces till my hands were sore! Literally every bolt and nut was removed except for removing the engine. I really like the end result and can't wait to get it out and ride. Paid $3000 and now I have $3900 in it. New bike for 1/2 price.image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg

      I recently ordered some new front brake pads for my yz450f 2010. The new pads were ebc's and overall were very similar to the oem pads on the bike already. The only difference was they did not have a notch on the side that is not the hole side. In order to get them to fit I had to remove the metal clip in the back of the brake housing. Does anyone know if this is okay? So far they seem to be fine.
      I'm very new to dirt bikes.
      Thanks for any advice!

      Since the 2017 series is over I figured I'd share my experience/time racing the series... some entertainment for those who aren't riding as much anymore this time of the year.  This is my first time racing a series and pretty much racing in general.  I entered the Open B class on board my KTM 300 XC and was able to compete in 8 out of the 9 rounds held.  I do include more footage of each event at the end of some vlogs... so if you were there watching or racing, you are probably caught on camera.  Enjoy!

      Hi, I am 13 years old and I am trying to decide what bike I want to get (two stroke of course). I'm 5'2 - 5'3 tall, and I weigh 125lbs.  I'm a beginner at this, meaning this is my first bike but, I have ridden a dirt bike a few times. My choices are the yz85, cr85, kx85, kx100, sx85, and the sx105 (Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, or Ktm).
      I am not interested in the rm because I just don't like it. It seems like a cheap crappy (sorry if I offended you) and it doesn't seem to have the speed and power that I want ( at least that's how people describe it to be). So please don't include it in.
      I am going to buy a used bike on Craigslist or somewhere because this is my first year and I'm not the richest of families (in case that helps.)
      Right now, I'm confused about which bike to get because they're all good brands. I want to be fast on the track (obviously) and I want to be aggressive. Which bike will fit that role? Can some also explain what top end and bottom end power is and what it helps with when you are listing a bike? Can you include the pro and con of it?
      I'm also not sure if an 85 is the right size for me, as I want to grow into a bike and have it last me. Maybe I should get a 125, if is so, which one (again, no Suzuki rm)? I'm going to a dealership to sit on some and try some (not too sure about trying some) Saturday but I just want thoughts about this.
      I don't know ANYONE with a dirt bike so the internet is my only friend here so I am really counting on you. My mom doesn't know anything about dirt bikes or the sport so I have to really look at this stuff myself. If you have any tips, please leave some as they will be helpful for me or any other onlookers in the same situation as I am in.

      I'm located in the greater Atlanta area, and am looking to purchase a Kawasaki KDX 220R trail bike in excellent shape. I will travel if needed, but I prefer something within reasonable distance of the Atlanta, Georgia area. Let me know what you have, guys. Thanks!
