    Oil change

    Sorry, got it confused. I believed it to be the same as on the 2004. Not too familiar with the 2012, but I believe it to just be on the bottom of the motor.

    Oil change

    The one on the bottom left is engine oil, the one behind the shifter is the tranny oil. I believe each take about 640-670 ml. Or somewhere around those numbers.

    Which bike should i get?

    Ended up going with the '17. Haven't ridden it much but it has been awesome. I don't do hard enough riding/racing to dial in the suspension how I need but I think it's pretty close. The power is unbelievable and always on tap.

    Which 450?

    I'm looking at buying a new 450 here in a couple of days. I've decided on a Honda, but am torn between the 2016 and 2017. I know each will have its pros and cons, but would like to hear some real world experience. Thanks

    Which bike should i get?

    Posting here since I know I want a Honda. Im looking at picking up either a 2016 450R or a 2017 450R. Both are about the same price. I know a few differences like the titanium tank, how they went back to a spring fork, and the single oil fill compared to two. My question which bike do you guys think would be better?

    Bolt broke inside gear shift housing...

    Whenever I break heads off bolts (which seems to be A LOT) I usually can get it off by jamming a flathead or a very small center punch and just backing it out. If there's somewhat if an edge on the screw the flat head or center punch will kinda grab in and you can back it out.

    Cylinder head

    Well I never had anyone to go to te dunes with but now a couple of my friends who happen to be hardcore dune riders somehow managed to get their hands on new machines. We'll see how it goes. I'll be cutting way back on trails and go to the dunes a lot more now.

    Cylinder head

    I don't ride twice a year. Only dunes twice a year. I try to trail ride about every weekend. But I've always used yamalube, never had a problem. But once I rebuild I'll make sure I take extra good care

    Cylinder head

    The electrode on the spark plug was smashed against the threads so I assume a bearing went on on the rod or wrist pin. Also some of the piston skirt shredded off

    Cylinder head

    Not a true dune machine. Take it out there once a year, maybe twice. Since it seized I'm gonna big bore it and go straight duning. How heavy would you recommend mixing at? I used to have it at 20:1 but since rejected for 32:1

    Cylinder head

    Yamalube at 32:1

    Cylinder head

    If I have time to take it off sometime soon then I'll definitely posted a pic on here.

    Cylinder head

    If that's the case, I will probably just get one from Phatheads racing since I'm turning my bike into a dune machine. And it's not that I don't keep up in maintenance but I think I was running lean. I was climbing sand mountain and it just seized. No idea what happened

    Cylinder head

    I recently had my motor seize up on me while riding dunes. I haven't taken a close look at the cylinder due to not getting it off yet but I did get the head off. How do I know if I need a new head/get it milled to fix? This bike is a 1998 CR250R
  15. It could be the throttle cable. If you adjusted your cable it might be holding the slide open allowing the gas to flow right through. Happened on my bike.
