  1. Keep me posted via the site. I may just join if it pans-out for you two. Thanks!
  2. 2010 YZ450F Comfortable with Beginner and Intermediate designated trails 38yrs old, trail ride with anyone interested Out to enjoy a day of riding and obstacles. No WOT/speed demon here........yet.
  3. Seeking Beginner & Intermediate Riders to ride w/in SoCal (Gorman, Rowher Flats, Pismo Beach) If anyone is going out to any one of the locations above and is beginner/intermediate riding level, let me know and perhaps we can ride together. Tired of riding on my own. lol PM me or post to thread. Thanks! K
  4. That's wild. All that trouble shooting, so many different and pricey parts swapped and still the issue persists. Where do you stand now with the bike? My issue with my 2010 YZ450F worked out in the end! Changed the spark plug, cleaned the airfilter, changed the dirty oil AND made sure that the oil level accurate. - It all worked out in the end! - After performing all of my aforementioned the bike wasn't running 100% right away, but after 1 full fuel tank of running it, the next ride was perfect; idled very nicely. I do have an occasional backfire, but it's very subtle and I'll live with it and chalk it up as the by product of an aftermarket pipe.
  5. I've had the same issue and mind you, everything with my 2010 YZ450F is fine, i.e. fuel pump, cooling system, valve clearances, spark plug, etc. I've improved my situation by changing the oil AND making sure that the level was correct. Improper oil level was what I think was a contributing factor, as I had too much oil in the bike and perhaps the oil pressure reading being too high was throwing off something in the ECU of the bike. I still have occasional idle issues that aren't THAT bad together with occasional back firing. - The short of the long with this post is that my idling issue is more than likely an issue with my ECU's mapping and I think someone changed it from STOCK to Custom when they installed an aftermarket pipe on the bike, since the occasional backfire is a result of the bike running too lean. Check for proper oil level for starters.
  6. Having the same issue with proper idle as yourself with my 2010 YZ450F that I purchased used last week. Haven't taken it yet to my mechanic, but I'm moments away from doing so, not knowing where to begin in troubleshooting this issue. My original post on the site today: "Hi Fellas! Let me start by thanking you for taking a moment to read this post and assist me with an issue I'm having. Recently purchased a used 2010 YZ450F (FUEL INJECTED) and I've been experiencing the following problem: From a cold start and allowed to idle for warm-up, the dirtbike idles well. Even when put into gear while it's still just starting the day everything works fine. ONCE I start riding and get it warmed up, the bike constantly wants to stall with clutch fully pulled in OR in neutral; I have to keep on the throttle, just to keep the engine going. I've had zero experience with this bike so far, but I've been told by a handful that with the YZ450F you have to keep on the throttle to keep the engine going. In addition, once the bike is done warming up (5min or so) and before I attempt to ride, I'll give the throttle a quick twist and just after that action the idle issues begin. May be a fluke since my last start, may not be, unsure. Either way, I expect the bike to always idle with the clutch fully engaged and/or in neutral. I have not played with the choke adjustment and I rarely need to pull the choke, since it starts up right away without it. The average temps here in SoCal run 68 degrees during this time of year (January) for me. Please spitball ideas of what you think the issue is or where would be best to start in troubleshooting. Only mod to bike is aftermarket pipe. Thanks All! David "
