Did my research and ordered a Turntech battery my 08. An hour later I read a post that mentioned it doesnt fit in the 08. Will see what happens when it gets here.

It fits. It just doesn't lay flat against the box like a stock battery. Not a perfect fit but everything will connect and go back together.

At least those are the reports I got back. Please report back if different.

With 5 inches of snow on the ground .....and no riding for several months!

the Shock seal was blown out from last seasons ride fest.

so.....read threads, download PDFs adn get busy with it.

Linkage fully greased

Swing arm fully greased

Leaky fork seal fixed

added fork neoprene sliders

Head bearings fully greased

New Xring chain

New sprockets front and rear

New Fredette chain guide (destroyed the stock one rock hopping in Utah)

shoegoo'd the chain slider to the swingarm to keep that rubbing from occuring.

Shock is off the bike and i put a new Alls Balls seal in it, the full unit. Used Pro circuit suspension oil. cleaned it all up Ill post pics someday when i can edit them down.

Stuff left to do.

Check valves

Repack silencer its an FMF Q, teh old style

Need to find a better filtration for the carb vent hoses, dirt is definatly coming up those and into my carb and precious motor

i picked up a used 08 wr450f with only 270kms on the clock last week, so far the mods have been GPR V4 sub mount stabilzer, force rad guards, procircuit t4 exhuast, yz cam, yz carby, yz suspension, rekluse exp core clutch, replace the australian adr headlight with the us version, steg pegz and a 10.5l fuel tank for the longer rides. mods still to come are a lighter battery, procircuit header pipe, and thinking of removing the stock speedo and read out replacing it with a gps unit. and last but not least a visit to ringmaster graphics for some custom graphics to finish it off.

Battery is in. I had to extend one wire and re-route two others but it was worth it. It sits flat in the bottom and starts better than it ever has before.

Is the tank from a KTM Adventure 640 or custom?
Yep, they're the 30L versions from the KTM 640 (actually manufactured by Acerbis), fitted with some custom made supports (see me website!) :thumbsup:

Bought one!!! :thumbsup: Found a 2006 with only 40 very light miles on it. Almost showroom condition. Completely stock. Unfortunately, been sitting for the last two years with the same gas. Been lurking around here for the last few weeks so I'm pretty familiar with the mods I need to do. Since I'll be rejetting, the carb will get a good cleaning. So now I have a YZ125, YZ250, WR450F and an FZ1! I think I have the bases covered :ride:

      So i just rebuild my top end of my 2005 250F, i had 35 houres on my piston and cylinder so i decided to rebuild it.
      it ran perfectly before the rebuild, my timing is right, i have spark, en my sparkplug is a little wet so i have fuel... If i try to kick it it starts to run but after 2seconds it stops running. does anyone know what i have to do?
      thx Medard from belgium

      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???
