Swingarm chain slider wearplate (For Grey)

So I would like to do something about how fast my stock plate wears through as well as the grooves in the swingarm that you made the plate for. I would like to put a tm designworks one on it like you said was on your sons, mostly because I already need a new one, it will last longer, and because I am lazy and dont want to fab a plate up. Question 1: How does the tm slider keep from wearing the swingarm like the stocker does?

The TM attempts to avoid this by first lining the back of the slider with foam, and then it bolts down firmly in a single location, rather than being allowed to shuffle back and forth a small amount as the stocker does. This appears to work OK, but the TM is quite a bit noisier, even with the foam liner, and way more expensive than the OEM slider, so I use the original.

alright so I just got it and it comes with two extra rubber pads to replace the ones that are already on there if they wear out (although you can buy more strips as replacements later on too). My question is: would it be a smart idea to run a second strip of rubber on the underside of the slider that contacts the top of swingarm? There is already one by where the back bolt mounts up, but do you think it would be worth it to put another a few inches more toward the front as well that way the entire top of swingarm is protected from abrasion and also to help with the slap a bit more? Or am I being too anal here and should just run the one that is already on there?

The DW slider has been reconfigured a time or two since I last looked at one. If you are using their slider, I would just assemble it per the included instructions.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      I could use some feedback, My son is getting into off road riding so I have starting getting back into it as well.  We mostly do trail riding but did some MX track riding last year and he loved it andso did I.  I have a 2003 TTR 225, it's nice that it has an electric start but the suspension is too soft and it doesn't have enough power for my liking.  When I was riding the MX track I was having issues bottoming out on the larger jumps.  I want to change to a more off-road capable bike.   I won't ride it much and don't want to spend a lot of money, I think I prefer a 2 stroke, when I was younger, in 1990, I raced an 89 RM250 and loved it.  I am looking at a 96 RMX 250  and a 98 YZ400F, both bikes look to be in good condition and around a thousand dollars.  I like the RMX because I think kicking a 2 stroke 250 should be easier than a 4 stroke 400 and the simplicity of the 2 stroke engine.  The 400 sounds good because of the low end torque I assume it has but the cost of rebuilding the 4 stroke if needed worries me and I have heard they are hard to start. Should the RMX be decent for an occasional trip to an MX park?  Any thoughts on these two bikes?

      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.
