Optional stiffer Titanium springs avail ?

Does Yamaha offer an optional heavier rate Ti spring ? I looked at online fiche and didn't see it . Also tried search . Anyone know ??


check for yamaha gytr race parts, but your best bet is probly gonna be racetech or factory connection. or another aftermarket company like that. good luck.

Look under "alternate for chassis". They list 9 different titanium single rate rear springs.

Thanks for the speedy relies . grayracer , I knew they had to be there somewhere . Unfortunately they don't go high enough . They have a 5.58 - I need a 5.8 or 6.0 .

pro circuit sells titanium springs - give them a call

Thanks , found them . $500.

i would suggest a Renton Coil Spring (RCS) way before an oem.

$500 :ride: does that come with lube? :thumbsup:

tell me about it. I payed 335.00 for a 5.6 Ti Yami spring...

man PC really bends you over......:ride:

Enzo and DRD had some RCS Ti springs for sale check them

I put a factory connection spring in. Works great, its not ti, under 100 bucks. It is heavier but I dont think any body could tell while in the saddle. The right size spring is more important than the weight, imo. I have no Idea why the springs are 500 bucks, ouch...

The first reason is that titanium is expensive. The second reason is that the Yamaha springs are produced in volume by a large manufacturer with a multi-year contract, and the Pro-Circuit spring is turned out in very small numbers by a much smaller maker who may have no assurance whatever that he will be making more in the future. Considering these two things, it doesn't surprise that Yamaha wants 250% more for the Ti springs than the steel ones made from much less expensive materials in much greater numbers, or that PC wants even more for theirs, which are really almost custom parts.

To me, I think your point is pretty well taken regarding the steel springs. There is a 2-3 pound difference in the spring weight, but I have to agree that a bike with the right springs will handle far better than one that weighs 3 pounds less but has the wrong springs. As much as I would as soon have the ti spring, I'd have to go with steel if I needed one myself.

      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!
