    2 0r 4 stroke

    hi ive just swapped my 06 rm250 2 stroke for an 06 kxf250 and at last i have a bike i can actually ride!!! first time out on it today and im 5 times faster and can ride for 5 times longer, thought i was ready for the 2t but not fit enough! four strokes are soooo forgiving and easy to ride!

    FRONT END WASHES OUT EASILY

    i had the same problem with my 04 when it was brand new, went to all sorts of trouble spending money to try and fix it. (previously owned a yam that i thought was planted). the three things that i think made the bike rail turns was running lower tyre pressures, breaking the thing in and learning how to ride it! give the bike to rc and i bet he wouldnt loose the front end.

    WR450 Starter Update '03 to '04 Part Numbers

    im gonna have to bite the bullet and get these parts in myself. i want to sell my bike and cant sell with this problem. it will be cheaper to buy parts, than lose money on depreciation. doesnt look like yamaha are in any hurry to sort things out. still havnt heard if anyones been successfull with upgrade yet. please let us know. thankyou

    '03 wr450f letter to yamaha

    not been on line for a week so missed all this action, im preparing a letter and im going to print off all the posts i can find about this problem but im not sure whether to send to uk headquarters, germany (where it came from) or to go straight to japan (does anyone know how to write with drawings). maybe if there getting it from across the globe they might think theyve got a problem. as for all those who think were mad and they wont have a problem take my advice, dont remove your kickstart for less weight!!!!!!

    woodruff key lead to cracked case?

    oh dear! ive had the cover crack on me but that looks damn serious, is that the actual crank case as opposed to the cover?. my bike was bought from an unoficial importer so yamaha wont even put me through to the complaints dept! count me in on that petition though! wheres my nearest honda dealer?

    Start without battery

    hello mate, you need the battery for your ignition. i dont know if theres a way around it but i would like to know if someone else has any ideas as the battery weighs quite a bit.

    WR450 Starter Update '03 to '04 Part Numbers

    hello fellas, ive been following this posting with interest as this is whats happened to my 03 model, it backfires when off the throttle. Ive now broken my case and chewed my starter gears up twice. Ive got an fmf ti 4 fitted and didnt really think it needed jetting as it pulls fine. Im assuming thats whats caused it. look forward to hearing if mod works. does the backfire only do damage when using the button?

    First ride 04 WR450

    hello pbdblue. Hows that YZ cam does it make loads of difference, im thinking of putting one in mine (03 model) after ive fixed the other problems! but ive also gone for the 5.6 spring and fork mods these work lovely. i use it more for the track than anything and wondered why i didnt just buy an mx version but with these mods id like to think that im not far from a YZ, am i? ive not ridden a YZ450 yet. is there a huge weight and power difference etc (after ive pulled everything off it and done mods)
