    My 10 year old, brand new, YZ426F

    lol i'd kinda like to know this too. i just put the 450 cam in my 426 cause i race it in harescrambles and it's a pain in the a$$ when it stalls out in the tight stuff. doing the decomp dance on a slick off camber hillside isn't very fun at all. don't get me wrong it wouldn't be much fun with auto decomp but i'm hoping it helps some. i have to recheck my valve clearance now though. it fired up today and sounds like a sewing machine :\ i say pimp that bike out and get yourself a 450 exhaust cam it wasn't that hard to do to be honest. timing can get you second guessing yourself but if you just go with what you find on here you'll have little problem.

    wow i thought mine was in good shape! nice find man!
  3. wiz, no he said he could run the screw all the way in without it stalling out... in other words the fuel screw did little to nothing. this is what mine has been doing before i just did work on my bike. i went up a size on my pilot after troubleshooting and hopefully will have my bike back together and running here shortly so i can see if it's running any better which by all rights it should be.

    yz426 trouble starting

    you have the choke pulled out right? mine takes two quick twists of the throttle then do the decomp dance(hopefully that will be a thing of the past for me though, i just dropped a 450 exhaust cam in with the auto decomp ) i can't help but think if he had it running first kick then maybe it's something simple that you're missing

    YZ450F over-heating...help!!!

    first off bud i'm not arguing anything further more i have REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE with other products that i'm completely happy with so stop pushing evans on every damn coolant thread on the freaking forum! it gets old. you can't push YOUR choices on everyone. i bet out of the 117 posts you have 110 of them are you trying to push evans on people. at any friggin rate back to the MAIN TOPIC OF THIS POST WHICH ISN'T EVANS! yes letting any bike sit idling for over a minute is going to cause it to boil... gotta keep the air flowing.

    ah, ok... thank you. i was having a problem along these lines too but i think my problem was a small pilot. i went up a size but still putting my bike back together atm so i haven't been able to try it yet. my vacuum plate is in correctly so hopefully it was my pilot jet.

    ok so it's good. i don't argue with that but like mikedabike is getting at(well from my perspective anyway i don't want to put words in anyones mouth) if you have a sudden overheating problem when all the conditions and everything else are rather normal to what you're used to then there is an underlying problem that needs addressed rather than just covered up. i have no doubt that evans is a quality product. just need to get the problem, if there is one, solved first then go from there with another coolant.

    well actually there is a difference. the core plugs are meant to be a permanent plug while freeze plugs are designed to pop out if ever your coolant has more water than necessary and when it freezes the plugs pop out to prevent your engine from cracking from the pressure of the ice expanding

    ok i feel really dumb asking this but does anyone have a pic or number to refer to on the parts diagram of the vacuum release plate? i can't find it in my manual anywhere. :\

    will do. i guess i'll have to take the valve cover off to make sure i don't get any metal shaving into the valves when i tap it. no biggie though. certainly rather be safe than sorry. gray while i have your attention, do you think i'll have a problem with my head gasket leaking? i had to lift the cylinder up about a half inch in order to replace the front cam chain guide. it was only up for maybe 15 seconds and the gasket is actually 4 metal gaskets(spacers/shims perhaps?) and they didn't stick to the head surface or anything that could've warped, kinked or otherwise damaged them. i didn't have the foresight to order a new gasket when i ordered the new chain guide. didn't realize i'd have to take the cylinder off. also the 'freeze plug' you're talking about is a genuine freeze plug and not a core plug correct? or are you in fact referring to a core plug?

    dude i bet if i went through all the coolant posts, you'd be there pushing evans in every single one... just sayin...

    well i ran into another problem now the hole where bolt #13 goes in the diagram you linked to stripped out! it stays in finger tight but i know it's gonna come loose after about 10 minutes with the engine started and vibrating. do the plugs for the decomp require that bolt to hold them in? if so i'm going to have to figure something out and quick. any ideas?
