    Yamaha YZ450F (2017)

    looks totally bad ass, have yet to take it out, but it rips from the little bit of time i spent running around the neighborhood. fit and finish is awesome, more to come when i put down some laps.

    2017 yz450 exhaust

    I finally pulled the trigger, Im taking home my brand new yamer 450 tomorrow. Ive been looking around trying to decide on what exhaust system i want to get. Is the full system worth it or should i just buy a slip on? I dont want to spend a fortune, would like to keep it quite, and it has to have a spark arrestor. Was wondering what everyone else has gone with, what has the best fit and finish, and what didn't brake the bank.

    Is this a batt tender? Yz450fx

    The dealer i work at installs tender leads on any thing that has a battery, its good for us when bikes sit in storage for months. It also saves the customer time, and most of them aren't competent enough to install one themselves.

    Should I get a two stroke?

    A 125 is every bit as fast as your crf250, look for a 2006 or newer yz 125, 144's are cool but not really any faster. you will learn to make the engine work on a 125, where you can be pretty lazy on a 250. If you can find a clean one buy it, and keep it for a long time. They are super easy to work on, super light, handle like a bicycle, and sound and smell amazing. Some of the fastest guys I know keep a 125 in there line up, it seems to work for them...

    As a Group, We Represent Ourselves Like S&!T

    Ive been guilty of going off trail to get around a downed tree, very cautiously, a gear high and trying my hardest to not spin the wheel. There's no moving a 30 foot tree that's 2 feet in diameter with two guys. Would have gone right over it, if it sat on the ground, not 2 feet off of it. I wish a lot of these trails out here left the trees across it, i would rather check up and hop a log then clip one, that's hanging on to the trail on both sides, in third gear. Will gladly attend work parties next spring, let us know when and where.

    Need advice on rebuilding a top end on YZ125

    When you tear it down take the cylinder to a local motorcycle shop, or machine shop and have it measured most will just do it for free. Then with the bore measurement they give you, you can order the correct piston size.

    Renthal Twinwall Handlebar

    It has taken many hard hits, they won't bend. they are more ridgid than regular fat bars which make your inputs more direct and responsive. But they tend to transfer alot more feed back to your hands.

    FMF Racing TurbineCore Spark Arrestor Silencer

    works better than the turbinecore Q, is not loud I am confident with fresh packing it would pass a 96db test. Spark arrested so I can ride in the woods, but doesn't restrict it so much that its flat and boring on the moto track. Would buy again

    FMF Racing Fatty Pipe

    fit is mediocre, which is strange because every fmf product ive ever owned has fit better than stock. Power is ok pulls for a long time, lots of over rev, very flat down low, small hit in the mid range.

    Suzuki RM250 2002

    Excellent handling, turns better than any bike I have ever owned. It handles trail hack surprisingly well for a motocrosser. The power is lack luster in comparison to other 250 two strokes I've ridin, but if you can keep it in the sweet spot its no dog.

  14. Couldn't find it, didn't even have a paper back copy for that model. I do have jet specs for 5280, and timing specs if you need them.
  15. I dont see why not, I was pulling a boat around behind my old ford when i was 16, going forward is easy. Just have to turn a little late, and keep in mind that you're draggin around an extra 20 feet behind the truck. Learning to back it up isn't that hard, take your time and cover the brakes.
