Ongoing project with my 2016 YZ450F 60th Anniversary. Swapped everything that was yellow with black and am making my way through some other upgrades including a full FMF 4.1 stainless exhaust w/ custom decal, Renthal bars and drive system, ARC levers / clutch perch, twin air filter, chem stripped and powder coated rear spring, sandblasted case covers, suspension re-valving by FTI, GYTR moto glide plate and GYTR weighted flywheel. Most everything else at this point is stock. Keeping all trim graphics black and white to keep the theme consistent with the bike.
My Yamaha is used for daily travel in the city and runs very high gearing ..on the open road it’s topped out at 170 KM and is so much fun ..I changed the plastics to all black and had the Redbull graphics made up..it runs Alpina 17 in wheels with Conti attack sm tyres..the rear shock is a Ohlins TTX With the front forks revalved..the front brake setup is moto master system and works amazing ..the clutch is hydraulic and the exhaust is FMF so is nice n loud..the lights are all downsized LEDs including the indicators..it has many little bit n pieces added all over the bike to make it so much fun to ride
Been a while since my last post !! Here is and i will add more are three pics of my finished bike ..It started out as a bog -standard 250x but after a lot of work and looking for shrewd buys i think its as done as it will be for a while ..
It has a twisted engineere'd set or handlebars max flex i cant say how happy i am with those after two or three big crashes they remain straight .They are attatched to a set of 08 yokes ,which i have added a scott steering damper to! The front forks have some weird valves inside not sure what but they work the forks are from an R i have added il and heavier springs but they are plush when pushed hard ..O/S front disc and SS brake line..
I have an Athena 280 kit ,coupled with a vortex ignition 10 map an R cam and all new valves.. Its kept cool by O/S radiators and pump ,with help from a PWR oil cooler kit..Air box cut for max intake.. pink wire removed It has a full FMF system with a very trick full carbon end can even the mount is carbon and it has no rivets or welds holding it on its all one piece and very light ..Seat cover black and red rib, zeta levers , 5mm lower footpegs digital clock,nippon denso plug .
lithium battery ,excel wheels SS spokes polisport plastics graphics by Danger uk
the bike rides as it should it keeps up with the R model (my friend had an 09) i am thinking of changing the cam to a stage 1 not sure as yet (anyone got one that could share info ) ..more to follow if anyone interested thanks
