    Powder Coating A Rear Spring?

    I rattle can springs all the time with no problems. Just use high quality paint, no store brand crap. MY boss is real anal about how the bikes look so i just do it and it does not crack .

    2005 rm-z 450

    Glowing header is normal when the bike is idling (usually you can only see it in the shade/dark) As for the the noise, low RPM clacking that fades with increased RPM is most likely cam chain. Although keep in mind Thumpers have a lot more moving parts thus have a lot more noises coming out of that engine as compared to your two smoke. The 05-06 model has a semi auto cam chain tensioner and it must be adjusted periodically to insure the cam chain is tensioned properly, do a search on this forum or see your owners manual for details on that. It is pretty easy.

    removing valves from head

    for removing valves i usually just grab a socket slightly smaller than the diameter of the valve spring, throw an extension in it to seal up the drive hole, and give it a whack with a mallot....usually does the trick....watch your eyes:thumbsup: Installing i use one of these Works pretty well on dirt bikes, ect. All i usually need....My valve spring compressor has been used like twice

    What fuel are you running in your CRF450?

    80 cents a freaking gallon....Seriously, if gas was that much here in so cal, i would have at least one more NEW bike with a whole lot of goodies. I spend over $300 a month on gas when it is over $3.00 a gallon

    K&N air filter for 05 CRF 450?

    K&N.....More Air, More Wear.......I would NEVER recommend a gauze filter for any off road product. like 80% of the blown up ATV's i saw when i was wrenching at a dealership had K&N filters on them
  8. Negative. Different frame, different sub frame, and engine mounted at a different angle.

    Home made Fly wheel puller

    If you don't want to buy the tool, take it to the shop. Only way i can think of doing it without the tool.

    tip tied spokes??

    Safety wire the spokes for off road app's.....Never for MX though. Keeps broken spokes from becoming more than a broken spoke by holding it in place.
