Product review for the new Terry Cable tire irons.

Recommended Posts

THESE IRONS ARE FREAK'N AWESOME!

I can't believe I've used those crappy Moose tire irons for so long. No WONDER I've been pinching tubes!

These Terry Cable tire irons have great handles. I didn't even bother using gloves. With my Moose irons, I had to use gloves to prevent my hands from getting gouged.

Plus, the tips have sort of an 's' bend to them. The bend at the tip that bites into the tire is pretty small. So there is almost no chance of pinching the tube. But, it also bends slighly the other way to give you the option of grabbing more bead.

And they seem strong. I've bent cheaper tire irons in the past. I really cranked on these babies and they flex just barely but won't bend.

If you change your own tires, with out a doubt, I now consider these a MUST HAVE! They are only 12 bucks each with is about what I paid for my Moose irons. Did I mention that those are crappy?

My tire went on easier last night than any other I've ever changed. And it was fairly cool in my garage and the rubber was a little chilled (50 degress or so). However, the Terry cable irons aren't the kind you would want to pack on a trip. They are a little bulky for that.

Hey Chris! Sup?

I actually found it at the local dealer! Amazing since the dealers around here can only ORDER good things for you! I got my Terry Cable Hot start the same day.

You don't have to sound like Tim Allen with this tire iron. It makes things much easier than when I used those Moose tire irons.

Local Dealer? Don't get me started, I found out last night that he ripped off my wife, charged her $134 for my E-line CF skid Plate she bought my for my B-day! HE's supposed to be giving us 15% off retail, I've bought 3 bikes from this guy.....I'm buying mail order from now on...screw'm.

Okay,sorry for the rant, I feel better now :)

      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)**

      Hi I’m new on the forum and I was wondering if a 2001 Yamaha YZ426f clutch is interchangeable with a 2002 Yamaha YZ426f clutch thanks , Coleman
