  1. Its Tom at the moto lab. Had my ecu re-programmed on my 14. Best thing i did to it.
  2. Interesting, I did not know that.
  3. Wonder why they went back to a 4 speed??
  4. Tech a, Although the pass was impressive, i see a different rider in tomac. He understands he is in it for the long haul and cruised in at 2nd for points. Tomac blew by Baggett earlier in a regular part of the track. Baggett had that corner dialed in all day. It was his sweet spot. Racing this year is awesome. I have no favorites. Just would rather not see Anderson up front.
  5. I am a big guy myself, thats why i do prefer the 450. Torque, everywhere.
  6. Also, you should be able to pick up a really nice 250 2stroke for $2,500.
  7. The plastics and frame look like an 07. Type in google the 06, 07, and 08 and you will see the difference. My vote is 07.
  8. That frame is pre 2008.
  9. 03ac, I have rode both and prefer the zook hands down. I had an 05 yz, bother had an 08. Good bikes but have a harley feel to me compared to the razor sharp handling of the zook. I agree with the others, jump and you will understand why after you spend a few minutes on the zook.
  10. I live very close to idaho falls. I sent my ecu off to the moto lab. I think that is one of the best mods you can do for an rmz450. When you go to send it off, ask about the pipe and plugs. I recall it not being an issue anyway.
  11. I have a 2008 tc510 that i put an electric start on. Its been a good bike with loads of smooth torque. As mentioned by Jon, they do have some vibration though. They are beasts though and are a solid bike.
  12. cdf450, I live about 15 to 20 minutes away from the st. anthony sand dunes. You may want to skip them as we have cold temps and snow. Just a heads up.
  13. I was contemplating on why I chose the RMZ over all the other rides available. Sorry for the cheesy question, but am very curious as to why others chose the RMZ? I will be honest, a fairly local dealer was blowing out the zooks in preparation for the 2015's. It was a deal I could not pass up. I actually planned on selling the bike for a profit or break even plan in a year of riding it. I got the nay Sayers telling me immediately that the zooks were no where near the quality/reliability as the others. I had been riding european and Yamaha bikes up to this point. My heart was set on getting a two stroke 300 due to the area I live in Idaho. There are some amazing trails here in south east Idaho. However, the zook has proven to be a good bike and proved the nay sayers wrong. I still long for a 300, and hold off riding as much with the hopes to keep the hours down on my bike for resale purposes. However, every time I ride I am impressed and it puts a smile on my face. So, why did you select the RMZ over any other bike?
  14. guearyt, I had my ecu done by Tom as well. Best bang for the buck! He is a great guy to work with as well. It was impressive what it did for my bike.
