I snuck into enemy lines. . .

onto the CRF forum out of bordem and through direct recon uncovered rumors (no photos) that Ricky Carmichael may be riding a modified CRF during a race or two this up coming Nationals. Issue a warning order to Team Blue and set operation Ferry into motion. If that doesn't work, we might be forced to use our last resort, code named Povelkod-fish who will ride his Suzuki RM 250 onto victory. :)

In this ring, fighting out of the blue corner, weighing in at two hundred and thirty some odd pounds dry....the prince of power, the sultan of sky, the one and only YZ450F!!! Fighting out of the red corner, the red-headed step child, the CRF450! It will be great to see the 2 big thumpers with skilled riders going head to head.

Disclaimer: Before everyone gets on me...they are both great bikes. I ride blue, it's my obligation to the brethren to be somewhat bias!

nah, make pavelkod ride his shiny YZ with so the polished swingarms and ignition cover blind RC!!!!


I think Wyatt's bike would be the one to blind RC and everyone else on the track! The glare off his swingarm alone would be enough to make everyone else run off the track! :)

Well, we have RC, sooooooooo........you're screwed :)

ha ha too funny!!!

LMAO!!! :):D

I don't know Reed looked fast on the YZ 4-5-0 during the world cup!

Braaaaap! Frrrrp. Man, what was that?! Oh, just some orange mush and some freckles under my 450's tire. . .

You guys are killing me! I wish I was half as funny as some of you! Wait a minute. Does looking funny count?

:):D :D Maniac

Bump, bump, bump.

What would be totally cool would be a head-to-head race between RC and Reed on thumpers. I would like to see how each of their riding styles would change going from 2 smokes to the thumpers.

On a more serious note; As well known as Povelkod may be in motocross racing, I am not sure that he would relinquish the RM250 to race the ever elusive KX/RM450 thumper as a representative of the Suzuki empire. Povelkod would more than likely feel that he would possess an unfair edge over RC and Reed using the top secret RM thumper. A victory over RC and Reed could not be enjoyed with such an unfair advantage.


I can just see it. Tim Ferry vs Ricky Carmichle.

RC pulls the whole shot oh wait here comes Ferry he is making a charge.... Ohhhhh down go's RC due to TF rear wheel. 19 minutes later....... Tim Ferry takes the checkered while Ricky struggles to refire his beast. :)

How true..does RC know the 4 stroke start routine???? Pin that gas while kicking....eternal flooding


Don't worry Ricky has been riding a CRF for awhile. He has been riding at his track a Ricky prepped CRF for awhile. I was at Washougal last year and he mentioned on the podium he would like to ride CRF. But in reality who really knows when he will get on one. He say's that he likes them on the national circuit. Ricky and Chad, mmmm-who's leading in the points in supercross.

True RC is leading in points. Compare RC's rookie year to Reeds and Reed is spanking RC. Only good things will come in the next few years when Reed spends more time on the tracks. RC's days are numbered anyway, who ever's paying Stewart will own the title when he moves to 250's.

      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.
