  1. ey Grayracer, You have been a help to me before, thought I'd ask you about something. I have a 2011 YZ450F and I need to reset the TPS, do you know what voltage it is supposed to read at idle?

  2. I will try this, wire in a radiator fan through a thermal switch (and a normal switch for starting)... I'll post the results. Thank you grey racer, what a wonderful help you have been to the thousands of us riders!
  3. Yes, fuel injected
  4. Ok... I'm not sure what you mean, do you think I could run the fan w/o a battery? Wouldn't that be great! I don't know if the battery has any sort of control board, it's a "anti-gravity" battery, very small and light. I'm not sure if my bike has a regulator/rectifier. YZ450F. Thanks Jess
  5. Quick update on all the cheap, (except the rekluse) but effective woods modifications... I forgot to include the lowering suspension link, that has proved to be nearly as important as the rekluse clutch. I want to put a radiator fan on it with a LiPo battery but can't figure out how to keep it charged.
  6. Got a question... I like my YZ450 for the woods, got a LED "plug and play" light and it works great. I want to put a radiator fan on it with a LiPo battery, (light and small). It would rarely be used, (occasionally waiting for the slow pokes at the end of a run). I'm thinking I could hack into the power that runs my lights with a regulator/rectifier. I would wire in a temp sender from the radiator. I was going to just put an external charger on it before I go riding but if the battery gets below 11 volts, it ruins it. The battery wants only 4 amps to charge. I wouldn't run the lights at same the time. Any electrical wizards out there? (grey racer)
  7. My YZ really does well in the tight woods of Oregon, lots of trees. However, it really is all relative. My son just bought a new KTM 350xcrf and its like riding a 125cc, quick and nimble, with a 450cc engine. We traded rides for a while and I am impressed. I have an old 2002 KTM 520sx and I've never been able to get it to handle properly so I was skepticle. You could actuate the juice clutch with your pinky. My YZ does Ok but it will never keep up with that KTM. KTM finally got rid of that goofy European feel, stink bugging around corners. That bike feels like a 125 Honda now. So... I have an OK woods bike for about $5000. My son has a phenomenal woods bike for $8000. (He got a 2016 for $8000 because they needed the room for the 2017's.) I suppose it all comes down to money, it usually does.
  8. OK, sounds good. We are going to China hat memorial weekend, shouldn't be dusty. (there was a time I didn't have to eat dust) 10-4

  10. Geez... 262 pounds wet for a FX, that's awfully heavy
  11. Why would you start with a WR? Just wondering...
  12. Both keeseckb and cowboyona426 have great reviews for the YZ450FX. Anyone else have a comparo between the YZ450 and the YZ450FX? By the way, if anyone lives close I have a GYTR tuner for the EFI 450's. You can use it for free if you go for a ride with us.... just a thought.
  13. I'm near newport Oregon, Logsden actually. Thank you for the offer. Where are you located?
  14. I gotta ride one, thats the problem, no test rides and I hate gambling
