    '08 RMZ 450 Front Brake Problem

    sounds like theres still air in it. I reverse bleed the brakes, once they are full, take a syringe and force fluid from the caliper up, which is the way air wants to go in the first place. I also force the pistons completely in the calipers while bleeding, then if I cant get full pressure, let them come out a bit and repeat the reverse part. I had so much trouble bleeding the brakes on my honda, I bought a Mity vac, which helps, along with reverse bleeding them, no more pump-pump-pump, bleed, pump-pump-pump, bleed. takes about 15 minutes this way. Another thought though, how old is that brake line? hope this helps.

    Would I have to remap my bike to put my new exhaust on?

    Im sure it can be done by someone, on Eddie's page, reflashing the OEM isnt listed under suzuki options, Toykomods doesnt list it either. Gonna call everyone today and see whats the dealliiioooo.

    maybe used it 2-3 times max, usually after a stall.

    ok, so it can be done. Unfortunately I dont think I'm going to spend that much or even attempt it after reading the PDF...

    alright, am i missing something here? Three websites and not one says the RMZ450 08/09 offer remapping??? I can read, but maybe not to well?? Could someone please confirm or deny this?

    Any 40+ guys here?

    I'll be 41 next month, been into this sport heavy since 96', and I wish I had more time to ride, current job has me working weekends but I will ride till I just can't.
  9. I'll second the nod for Gaerne, Ive got 6 year old SG10's that are still in great shape, no broken buckles, nada. Now I haven't ridden a ton, but the soles are just now to the point of needing replacement. Best boots I have ever bought.
  10. I wear two pairs of socks, riding socks underneath of ankle socks with no issues.

    Ive got a 09 motor and they dont shift well at all, hasnt jumped out of gear, but its tough to shift for sure. Remember when Suzuki's shifted like butter? What the hell did they change. I know the trans has to be beefier for the hp/weight, but the top of my foot actually gets sore.
  12. Since your not using Notoil filter oil? If you were Oxyclean works great in place of the expensive cleaner.
  13. Agree about the SS valves, just from the setup Ron sent me which was an 06 head, they barely moved at all and I rode the hell out of that thing!! ok, I'm never on the limiter with a Stage 1, 13.5:1, air filter after every ride(sandy here), and I changed oil after every 2 rides, which does not help valve life btw, being as when it got ridden, it was ridden for as long and as fast as I can go. Put a Pro-seal cage seal, because the 04's had a loose fit even when fully tight, and if I dropped sand in the boot, subframe off and cleaned. The only guys whose valves never moved were +40 straight beginners, the motors probably never even saw 9k rpms'. 8 years ago when all this stuff starting coming out about the springs being weak and the valves floating and beating themsleves out of the bikes, the seats being too hard and all this stuff going on cannot be new info. And everyone I ride with, and almost all of us have hondas, have had valves go out. Maintenance is not an issue, period. We all race, are not on daddy's dime and take care of our bikes. Banging off the limiter without problems on a full-mod motor with no valve issues, tough sell my friend.
  14. Maybe because I ran it without an air filter? seriously, you say that like I'm the only one with valves that went out, maybe you missed the billion threads on here about that subject, Honda had a problem, obviously since there are a ton of after market valve companies, along with companies to fix the heads. Don't take it personally, great bike, bad valve train/springs. My next bike will be another CRF, best bike I've ever owned, period. Since I didnt take care of my bike, please explain to me how you took care of yours so I'll know what do do next time. I think its funny you make a generalized statement about bike maintenance then don't offer any knowledge, please enlighten me.

    One tooth bigger on front sprocket crf 450

    I rode/ride nothing but mx, 14-49 is great with my motor, Stage1 HC, high comp piston. Depends on how you ride you ride I guess, I dont rev it and its a thing of beauty. Great starts too, still in second for a little bit longer while everyone else has already shifted. Cheap to try different setups, see what works for you and how your ride.
  16. If you plan on keeping the bike for any length of time, once they move, just get them fixed right, SS intakes, good springs, and get the head put together and checked out by a qualified shop. OEMS lasted less than 20hrs, First SS were lapped in and lasted about 80hrs, not exactly the way it should be done(unless your on a budget), second set i bought a whole head set up from Ron Hamp, those lasted till the oil pump failed at about 295 hours, with one reshim in the middle. And no, I'm not kidding, they are still in the bike. So much information on this site about CRF valves, if you could print it all out, you'd have reading material for the "office" for at least a year. And the subject of oil and you've got a lifetime.

    How do you like me now?

    a few years(10-12) ago this site was pretty much wide open and not too much moderating going on, it was pretty bad for a few, and comical as hell for most of us. good job on improving and understanding what was being constructively said about how you were being perceived. Just keep in mind typed words can be hard to interpret, regardless of how straight forward a person may think it was written. If thats you from Haspin, clear those jumps man, hurt my teeth watching you check up!!! If not, carry on, lmao.
  18. i had close to that setup in my 04, same piston with a Stage 1 HC. During the summer I had to mix fuel 50/50, 93/110 or it would ping just a little. Great motor in that bike with those mods. With 100% VP-U4 and a yosh exhaust, it had silly power. On a bike in florida, unless you like changing sprockets every month, steel, steel, and steel, with a high quality x-ring in the only way to go for my wallet! My 04' is in pieces waiting salvation, oil pump gave out finally after a lot of very hard hours, (286) to be exact.
  19. A few years ago right after the helmet law was repealed in Florida I was out at a local spot laying down some laps early in the morning before the yahoo's show up. A couple guys with two little kids pull in and unload mini's and the dads are riding cr500's, none of them have helmets on, however they are all wearing boots, chest protectors, goggles, the works, just no lids. One guy rides over to me and says, "hey buddy, didnt your hear they repealed the helmet law? you dont have to wear one of those anymore. It was all I could do to keep my composure and not rip into the guy for the sheer stupidity, especially for the kids, moron. Ive also been told :"how tough can it be, its got a motor" more times than I can remember.

    Ouch.... Overshot it a little.

    wow, did he survive?
  21. bet which ever way you would like, and anything I said on here would be said in person. The comment wasnt an attack, my brother in law is from there and says everyone from west virginia is a hillbilly, sure it seemed like that since we don't know each other. The other stuff I stand behind. Plain and simple you sounded like an ass bitching about your girl scratching your helmet because she doesnt know how to use brakes, nothing about her being OK after the fact. Good looking girl, but do we really know thats her? Or you for that matter. And yes, there are lots of good looking girls down here, shoot me a PM if you get down here, I'll hook you up with one. I dont throw my two cents in on everything, just the some of the idiot stuff from time to time. Most of my posts have been looking for or giving advice to fellow enthusiasts. Name dropping? c'mon red.
  22. 12 years on this site hillbilly, they add up. But you know what, carry on man, have a great time. Hope you don't teach her how to ride on the street.
  23. All I can say is wow, you put someone on a bike who doesnt know how to control it, she crashes, scratches a helmet and your on here bitching about it? You are a grade A jackass, its your damn fault. Hopefully she leaves your dumbass before you get her seriously hurt.
