    450f vs 500 2 stroke

    My son and I race hill climes at carnegie. These times are on the same hill same day. CR 500 13.94 sec. 6th. place, YZ 450 14.41 1st. place, YZ 250 13.62 3rd place and yz 125 15.93 1st place but every race he is the fastest evertime,every year on the yz 250. the 500 has the most power by far.But you can't use it. With me on it and I weight 280 pounds. It gets sideways in 3rd gear in the street and thats with a new terra flex rear tire

    YZ85 V-force Reeds, how do these look?

    They are overpriced like most parts for your bike.But they do make a notable increase in performance.

    On any Sunday

    Great movie anyone know of a movie that was like any sunday. That came out a few years latter (like in 1974 to 1976) My wife rented this movie and it was just like any sunday with all types of racing, moto x,flat track, roadracing,and hillclimbs.While watching this movie my life long riding friend and now next door neighbors face pops on the screen ready to do a hillclimb on his new 1974 Yamaha sc 500 he look about 16 years old.My kid and his kid both are A class hillclimbers now and think there hot sh#t.I would love to show them this movie to bring them down a couple of notches

    Anyone have one of these??

    You can do it to a stock throttle tube with a pice of pvc pipe.Look for the mod. on the yz 400-450 form. I did it works great.

    YZ 1/4 turn race throttle mod

    Did this mod last week on my 426 worked great. I too had a hard time getting full throttle. I ride the hills at Carnegie and it was almost to fast for me. I tried it yesterday(Hillslimbs) for the first time, but maybe I'm just not use to it yet. In the description you say to use a 1 1/4" coupler on mine it was 1 1/4" pipe not the coupler. Great post!
  14. I think that you saw the bent end off(hacksaw,cut off wheel)then you can get it through the case.you need to remove the clutch baskit and the kick starter gear.
  15. What's the physical differance between the two. if you had the two side by side how could you tell?
