    my point exactly. Who here races intermediate or pro? MAYBE 1 ?

    McGrath lap times have nothing to do with 450's, forget about the bike, what are the rider's capabilites? Besides....a hot rodded 2-stroke is more difficult to ride and that is where the thumpers win. NOT because they have more horsepower but because they are easier for a lesser talented rider to go fast on.

    Dyno results 05 yz 250

    I know most of this is for the fun of it (hell I love modding my bike) but when I take a step back and look one has to ask....WHY?? A stock YZ250 has as much or more power than a works bike from 5 years ago. Is there anyone here turning McGrath speed lap times??? Of course the answer is no. So why does everyone "need" more power? Sorry....I have been accused of having a good grasp of the obvious! BTW....05 YZ250,,,for sale.

    450 Plastic on 426 COMPLETE WITH PICS

    not sure what part you want answered. I did this mod way back when because I like working on bikes and I had a lot of money tied up in aftermarket stuff on my 426. As far as what is wrong with the stock stuff...nothing. But the ergos on the 450 and newer bikes are a lot better...flatter and lighter. In May of 2004 when I did it (almost 3 years ago) I just about broke even by selling my 426 stuff on eBay. It would be more difficult to do that now.

    06 YZ250- 3 brand pipe shootout by me.

    obviously the 05 change was due to the new frame. There was a slight design change at the very end of 05 and has stayed the same since. Yamaha probably did not change the part number in late 05 though. Unfortunately I would be shocked if you ever see a change in the pipe/motor of the YZ250 from this point forward.

    the 2001 is bullet proof.

    2001 Yz426

    I would pass on the high comp piston. The gain you get is not going to knock your socks off and if an internal mod won't do that....leave it stock. I would replace the piston, rings and top bearing. I would also replace the cam chain AND tensionor. Set your valves while your in it and you will be good to go for a LONG time. And as Florida_426 said....get an hour meter if you plan on keeping the bike.
  8. no doubt a great mod. Here is a pic of my YZ426 just before I sold it....I upgraded the rear brake MC when I did the YZ450 conversion.

    Team Yamaha '07

    thanks for the links and the info DPW! You rock! BTW.....I suppose the only way I am going to get over my "Langston is a sandbagger" feelings is to consider that maybe he was waiting for a real ride before he moved up. Maybe he was just being smart ....not a wuss? One thing is for sure.....he will be on the best bike he has ever put a leg over. Good luck this season GL. As far as Reed's sponsor? I think their mission statement is admirable. As fans of motocross we should be grateful to ANYONE who throws their hat into the ring to sponsor a team. -B

    I love it! Most people (like me) don't have guts to post videos or pictures of crashes! BTW....I see you pulled the holeshot on some thumpers huh? Don't do that....it makes the marketing dept guys at the big 4 feel silly.
