YZ Kickstand

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can get a kickstand for my YZ400? I am not interested in the kind that attaches to the swingarm. Has anyone adapted a WR kickstand to a YZ? The WR appears to have some threaded fittings welded to the frame that the WR kickstand mounts to. The YZ does not seem to carry the provisions to mount the WR kickstand. I have a friend who is a welder, so if I can get the WR threaded fittings I can have them welded onto my frame no problem. I just don't want to mess with fabricating the fittings. Any help would be appreciated.

I have what you seek..... :)

It wasn't cheap! There is a guy down in LA that has fab'd up a part that duplicates the frame fitting for the kick stand. He sells it as a kit with the fitting, nuts, bolts and a stock WR kickstand for $150. Like I said not cheap but it works PERFECT. It bolts on at the subframe and the lower chain roller. Takes ten minutes to install or remove. I put it on when I'm going to do a bunch of trail riding and off for MX.

The guys name is Mark Blackmon @ Two Dad's racing, the phone is 818-782-4600.

Thanks Chris. I spoke with the Two Dads guys a month ago. Sounds like a good product but your right, a little pricey! If I don't get any other responses I'll probably go with their setup. Question: Is the stand design strong enough to put weight on it (I.E. sit and/or start the bike with it on the stand)?

Thanks!

Keep your eyes peeled on our trusty friend, Mr. E-Bay for a Pro Moto Billet Kick Stand. I picked up mine for half the price of a new one.

I got mine lightly used, bolted her up and am now the envy of all of my woods riding buddies.

It has never come out of it's Up position on even the biggest jumps, and I trust it.

The PMB is bullet proof, has an internal spring so grass and mud isn't ever an issue, and I feel is even sturdier than the WR Kick Stand, a factory stand no doubt.

I have one very similar to what you describe. I got minw thru Bajadesigns. It is all wr parts and an aluminum bracket that mounts to the subframe bolt. It works great. I dont think they sell the kit anymore due to the increasing costs of the Yamaha parts. but it worwks great.

I also have the PMB kickstand on my 125. Quality stuff, it's nice to put my bike on stand when we ride with my son and I can quickly help him to lift his bike up after he has decided to pick up a dime when we ride... :D

      Selling an FMF Power Core 4 exhaust system off my 450FX. Exhaust has 80 hours and is 100% functional. This will also fit the 14-15 YZ450F and 16-18 Wr450F. If needed I can also include new muffler packing although it does not need it.

      I have a 2008 YZ450F with a stock header pipe and Pro Circuit T-4 Slip-On Exhaust. I'm 99% sure the slip on is shot because its loud as hell and when I take it off and shake it it rattles. I would repack it but the screws are all stripped ect.
      Anyways I've gone over the carb multiple times and I've got it running pretty well. The only issue I have with the bike is that it sputters and pops around 1/2 throttle when I hold it there. When I give it full throttle from any RPM it runs great or when I give it about 3/4 throttle it spins up like a top to redline.
      Initially the popping and sputtering was way worse I made the situation better by moving the pilot jet up in a few sizes from a 45 (stock) to a 62. The issue has gotten way better since then but I'm not super sure what to do from here. Should I keep moving my pilot jet up in size because that's a pretty large jump right? I tried changing my needle clip position but that didn't help much if anything it just made starting it worse and little to no impact on the ride.
      Any input on this would be helpful. I don't want to buy other slip on. Also as for the rest of the carb I'm very sure everything else in it is what it needs to be at. I've replaced all the gaskets and O-rings cleaned all the jets, valve holes ect. fixed the accelerator pump timing. I just thinks its strange that my pilot jet size is going so far from the stock 45, but all symptoms point to the bike running lean.

      Hi I was wondering if y’all have been using a 450 on your YZ250F?

      Excel Takasago 17x3 front and 17x5 rear supermoto wheels with Metzler M3 tires in very lightly used condition. Less than 200 miles total on the setup. Warp 9 spokes. Rear has a Talon hub with 45T Sunstar steel sprocket and OEM rear disc, and front has a polished OEM Yamaha WR450F hub (for the stock speedometer), with a Motomaster 320mm disc. Included is a DID gold o-ring chain, 14T front sprocket, and front brake caliper adapter for a truly turn key setup. Everything is in excellent condition, not a single scratch on these wheels. Came off my '11 WR450F, but will fit many different Yamahas with 20mm front and 22mm rear axles. Asking $1400 plus shipping.
      **Will be driving up near Atlanta, then to northern Louisiana, OKC, and down through Dallas and Houston, TX soon -- can meet or deliver if in the area (Aug 31-Sep 9)**
