    2003 YZ450 midrange stumble

    My '03 does the same thing exactly. Black spark plug but missing and popping in mid-range like it's lean. I've ment to unplug the TPS to see if that is it but haven't gotten to it yet.

    Whats the best Chain Lube?

    I like the chain wax for dusty conditions. It doesn't build up as much gunk on my chain as other lube. May be just as good in water.

    03 yz450f Spring rate????

    I weigh 215. I went with .48 fronts, world of difference. I also went with 5.8 rear, I think it's a little too stiff from the way I have to set the bike up. But I like it. I'll probably change to a 5.6.

    Honest review of TT order process.....

    Ditto that for me. I have made two orders with them, and another this morning. Very happy with the communications and shipping time. Kinda wish their prices were just lower to start with and that I wouldn't have to go through the 'price compairison' deal, but it's well worth it.

    Part throttle problem

    Thanks...didn't think about the TPS maybe causing it....

    Part throttle problem

    Yes, while riding. If I hold it in second or third, any gear really, at part throttle it does it. Coasting too, it pops through the exhaust. I checked my plug but it's black except that the electrode tip is clean. I'll have to put a new plug in, this could be from someone idleing with the choke on or something. Thanks for the interest.....
  7. I have a '03 YZ450. It is stock, the only thing I've done is take 4" off the stock muffler. It is running the 165 main, stock needle position, and I'm at 15' elevation. It has always had a part throttle, mid rpm problem. If I hold steady throttle, say 30~50% it pops through the exhaust and feels like it is missing. What do I do to fix this?

    What tire did you go with...

    That seems to get the most votes. I see they have a 756RR too. Do I go with that or just the 756. Thanks everyone for the feedback.
  9. I see now why people said I'd want to change the tires on my new '03 YZ. So for MX only, what tire is the best out there right now?

    CRF100 Chain/Sproket help

    Why can't I find any listing for chain and sproket combos for a '04 CRF100? I want to change the rear sproket (I want faster speed in each gear). What rear sproket size is stock, and what should I go with?

    New '03 YZ450...What to do?

    Hey, thanks everyone for the input. I rode yesterday at the track for the first time and I am one happy dude. Glad I made the choice to move to the YZ. I know now what everyone ment when they said this bike has a 'snappy' engine
  12. I just picked up a new '03 model. Are there any 'must do's' that I should take care of right away?

    Dirtygirl in LA and Houston

    Take a look at www.houstonmotocross.com, look at the track page....there's lots of places around here to ride... Contact Houston Yamaha about rentals, I don't know if they do it, but if anyone, Tom would know.

    I need more power....bore or compression?

    Why did you buy an X for MX only? I really figured that I'd spend most of my time riding in the woods. But, one trip to the track and that thought was gone.
