    06 YZ450F vs. 05/06 YZ250

    I have both an 06 yz450f, and an 05 yz250. Which bike you get should be dictated by the kind of riding you plan on doing. The 450 is hands down the better bike at the track, but I still prefer the 250 for off road/desert work.
  2. I've got an 04 yz450f with is currently in it's third evolution, this bike lived through being an MX bike, then a desert bike, and I now have it in supermoto trim. It's been 2 years, and probably over a 120 hours on this thing. Not a lick of trouble, just changed the oil every other ride, and serviced the air filter often. I did tear the motor down prior to the supermoto build (@ about 100 hours) due to some hippie dumping a handful of dirt in the crankcase. I replaced all the bearings and wear items (cam chain, clutch, ect). It actually looked pretty good considering. The point is, my buddy had his 05 yz450f sabatoged at on the ride about 7 months ago and hasn't done anything but change the oil, and his bike still runs strong! I think thats absolulty amazing!

    I'v got about $1500 in this motor including all bearings, gears, seals, the head work, and the crank, but not the slipper clutch. The crank actually cost about $450 by the time the new falicon knife rod was factored into the equation. Any way plan on about $600-$800 for OEM replacement parts depending on what type of discount you get. I've got the parts list. Basicly I just printed off the micro finch from the yamaha website and used the part numbers provided when ordering parts. I would be happy to help you out, just what kind of list are you looking for, part numbers?

    TeamScream, I did all the bottom end assembly myself, and stayed with all the stock components. I did replace every bearing in both case halfs. The falicon rod is a beautiful thing as is their supercrank service. For more deatils on exactly what the supercrank service consists of check out falicon's website. The rear wheel is 4.25 (I got a "deal" on it, oh well). Thanks for the replies!

    YZ450F supermoto

    Thanks for the replies! I planning on getting the cycra hand guards, and for now this bike is race only. I would love to run this on the street, but I live in CA the land of stupid smog laws.

    YZ450F supermoto

    Thanks for the replies! 2in. suspension lowering is next on the list. The radiators hang a little lower than stock maybe 1/8 of an inch, but they are about 1/3 thicker(and 1/3 heavier ). The front fender is acerbis, you have to drill out your own mounting holes using the supplied template, and I also had to trim the bottom of the front number plate so it could fit. Thanks again.

    Thanks for the replies! I replaced them due to damage to the stock ones, and these were actually a bit cheaper than OEM. I know I could have just had the damaged on repairs but these were sooo cool

    YZ450F supermoto

    I just posted this in the supermoto forum, thought you guys might be interested too. I just finished the rebuild/transforamtion of my 04 yz450f into it's present supermoto trim. Here are the mods on this bike: Enigine-Head porting with kibble white valve componants done by Forwad Motion Racing, Falicon knife rod with Falicon Super Crank service on the crank shaft, OEM yamaha top end, and various new bearings, seals, gaskets O-rings cam chain ect. through out. Hinson clutch basket with STM slipper clutch and Hinson clutch plates. JD jet kit for the carb, and a K&N filter in the stock air box. Fluidyne radiators. I think thats it for the motor. Chasis-17 in excel wheels and Talon hubs front and rear, 05 twin chamber KYB forks serviced by Noleen with revalved stock shock. Complete Magura radial mount caliper and master cyclinder brake system. Other stuff-Acerbis supermoto front fender, SME axle sliders, Pro-circuit top and bottom triple clamps, scotts stabilizer, and ASV clutch lever. More to come I hope. This build took me about six months. Let me know what you guys think! Late

    Yz450 Motard. Performance Upgrades??

    On my yz450f supermoto I went with head porting/kibblewhite valve train via Forward Motion, a new stock top end, and the falicon supercrank service for the crank. I can't say these mods made monster power, but I do believe reliablity was increased with a slight gain in performance.

    steering damper for SM???

    In other words the Scotts street damper works just like the all the GPRs out there (at a reduced cost as well hmmm). Scotts dirt damper all the way!

    WR gearing any good for racing?

    For all yz and wr supermoto guys out there do you think the disadvange of the wr's low first would negate any advantages gained by the fact thats it's a 5 speed. The reason I ask is I have an 04 yz450f which is the middle of a supermoto conversion. Prior to deciding I was going to supermoto this bike I aquired a complete WR tranny. My question is it worth it to drop this tranny in or should I just write it off? I did some experimenting to see if I could simply dropt the yz 1st in the wr tans, of course you can't because of the tooth count differences on the primary shafts among other things. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance.

    450 neutral switch

    Dose any one know what the netrual sensor switch on the yz450f dose exactly (besides the obvious)? I've heard a few things, one being that the sensor allows the CDI reduce the redline in netrual. Any thoughts? Any advantages/disadvantages to disconnecting it?
  15. Yeah, and only one 2 stroke competing in the 125 main.
