  1. I was given a pro circuit link arm for my 2008 yz450f today, so my question is do I install it or sell it. I'm 6'0", so I don't need to lower my bike. I'm running Pro Action Suspension that has been re-sprung and re-valved, so I'm really happy with my suspension. It is my understanding that the 08 yz450f handling was so good, that it pointless, so is there any thing I could gain by using the pro circuit link arm on my bike?
  2. The one problem I had was it felt kind of harsh on larger landings and also in choppy stuff. Last week I ordered pro action's revolve kit and installed it. I got to test it out a little bit last night at a local track and it felt incredibly better. After a couple hours of riding I was beginning to feel more confident than ever. There was a triple going into a corner that I was overshooting, so at one point I tried to slow it up a bit and came up a bit short. My suspension soaked it up like it was nothing. Also, I was able to really hammer the choppy sections of the track. Im really happy with the pro action setup. The track was a little slimy due to all the rain we had this week, so I can't wait to get out and do more testing under normal conditions.
  3. That kit is the same one I just purchased. I have 4 hours on my new top end. The kit includes everything you need, however I would replace the timing chain as well if I were you. They tend to stretch after a while.
  4. They are both 48mm, so it should be a direct swap into your triple clamps.
  5. Make sure your bleaders are tight and try it again. I doubt that its your adjusters.
  6. I too am very impressed with the stock KYB, but am just wondering if I can make it feel any better by revalving it. I don't have a problem with racetech, but I like to keep my suspension local and pro action headquarters happens to be local. I have also used pro action for about 10 years and have never had any complaints. I will look into Racetech tomorrow.
  7. I've had my 08 yz450f for just over 2 years now and have gradually done things to make the bike setup for myself. This past winter I changed the springs out for the next size up for my weight. I'm about 200 lbs in street gear. After riding, I really like the new setup. So, I'm wondering, should I revolve my suspension? Is there something better that I might be missing with the stock valving. I pretty much just ride motocross. I have been rebuilding my suspension for years, so I have some of the knowledge to revolve it myself. I was looking into pro actions do it yourself kits, which is basically paying less for the same thing they would do. Or do I just reshim it myself? Any suggestions?
  8. If I remember correctly, all you have to remove is the pressure plate, the push rods and ball bearing. Then you should be able to lift the actuator up to replace the seal.

  10. Just pick one and use it. Yamalube, amsoil, Mobil 1. They all work, just change the oil every 5 hours and your good. Your get get 100 differant answers to your question. And no one wants to see another thread about what oil is better.
  11. To be even more clear, the exhaust marks are at 9 and 12 while the intake marks are at 12 and 3. Hope this helps.
  12. The lobes on both cams should point up and away from the head. Therefore, the exhuast lobes point up and forward and the intake points up and back.
  13. Also, make sure the crank is in the proper TDC for checking your timing.
  14. The allen bolt is a right handed thread, so turn it counter clock wise to loosen it. After you take the bolt off, if the old kicker doesn't pull right off, spray some pb blaster into the splines on the shaft. You should be able to work it loose. Use Loctite on the bolt when you reinstall it. Good Luck!!!
