Not today but tomorrow, I'm going to Hapo in the Tri-Cities to sign on the dotted line for my holdover '14.  I'll pick it up either Friday or the following Tuesday after the holiday.  Then the mods. come!!

Just installed Eibach 6.0 rear spring, upgraded from 5.3 stock spring, what a difference. Hope to get out this weekend and give it a real test.

Is re-valving recommended when changing spring rates or simple coil swap enough?

Assuming it's for a heavier rider

I decided to just do the spring first, I'm a woods rider and not into jumping. I'm 230lbs so the stock spring was pretty weak even for my woods riding. Might have to adjust clickers after testing this weekend.

Wristrockit--I've got a ECU tuner with some pre-loaded maps.  My local shop will re-map for free, but I bought the tuner just so I could re-map out in the woods before riding.

Nice bike, but good luck selling it for that price. You can buy a 4 to 5 year old newer with FI for around the same price.

 

The CA plate and DS kit are worth $800-1500, alone.

It is priced right. The CA license plate adds $800-$1000 in value. The Bike is immaculate with many extras. Fuel Injected WRs were not available until 2012.

Love the bike, but I need something a bit lighter so i'm going back to a 2-stroke.

These are both great bikes. Anyone that has ever built up a bike or even contemplated it knows that all the extras $$ add up. Price all that stuff out and then fugure in your "free" time and it adds up quick. If I had cash laying around I would have bought a bike like this but I had to buy new so I'll do it myself.

      Hey Guys, 
      So I am 270# and 6'. I used to ride and want to get back into it. I definitely have a good amount of experience to handle both a 250 and 450 but not sure if a 250 will be able to handle me.
      Right now the bikes I am between are:
      2012 YZ450F @ 50 hours for $4000 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1302150376&requestSource=b 2012 KX450F @ 35 hours for $3800 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1300722287&requestSource=b 2010 CRF450R @ 45 hours for $3200 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1296942462&requestSource=b All these bikes are in really good condition from what I can see from the pictures and none of them raced or track ridden. My plan is to build a 5 acre track in my backyard and build some sort of track along with mainly using it for trail riding.
      I guess what I am asking is for some suggestions and opinions that could help me decide.

      Very nice Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 Clutch that has been ran for about 40 - 50 hours.  The Core EXP 3.0 gives you the best of both worlds as it is fully automatic and allows you to operate it just like you would a manual clutch.  Was getting ready to install in a 2017 YZ250F so I wanted to freshen it up and bought a brand new EXP 3.0 Disc which has never been oiled up or installed.  Before getting time to install the clutch, I decided to sell the bike.  It fits a 2014 - 2018 Yamaha YZ250F. 
      ONLY $575 shipped anywhere in the lower U.S.
      Please call or text me at 801-362-8899.
      Thanks!

      Hi guys I just did a top end rebuild on my 2004 yz450f and I inspected full motor, replaced the bottom end gaskets and seals, timing chain, cylinder, piston,rings, top end gaskets, valves, spark plug, and it ran fine fr about 15 hours besides a quiet ticking noise. I was put riding the other day and after about 6 hours of riding that day my buddy asked what my rev limiter sounds like and I said i don't know and I don't want to blow it up and he said it won't blow up so I started it up and pinned it to hear the rev limiter and I only held it open for one second and then it backfired and died. I tried to start it back up and the compression is extremely low. I can push kick it over with my hand easily. Pulled the head off and found some very small metal particles on the cams, timing was fine, and the top of the piston is ok, (haven't taken it out of the cylinder yet).... Anyone know what it could be???

      Made another YouTube clip of our last ride, thought I'd share with you all.  Cheers!
