  1. It's been too long since the last time I had this feeling...

    Yamaha YZ426F (2001)

    One of the baddest 4t motocrossers ever built. It't 5-titanium valves engine is unbreakable, and the 5-gear gear box is very flexible.

    Husaberg FS570 2011

    Fenomenal Supermoto. In some circles it is known as the 'ideal street-legal Supermoto'. Lots of torque down low, very reliable, very very light and nimble. Top speed around 110mph, range of about 85 miles, with the unique ability to do fire-roads very well (even in stock Michelin Pilot Power semi-slick tires) and scare the SHIT out of sportbikes on winding roads.. they.will.not.catch.you =)

    2010 BMW G450x

    Guys, I'm considering a 09 g450x and get two set of wheels, one for street-legal supermoto, another for trails, without tryimg to be too radical (mostly wood riding and some hills). Anything that can be said about this bike? Any other not-so-exotic bike that could do as I described above? Thanks!

    SM Rim sizes for 2001 YZ426F

    Helps immensely - I was thinking in a 160/60 which would probably give me problems so 150/60 should be more adequate. What about the rim width? 3.50" front and 4.50" rear? Thanks!
  8. Excellent news Ricky, I am definitely interested. Any chance you could ship it to Brazil? And would you recommend the floated ground? My understanding is that it makes starting the bike easier, but any other benefit or drawbacks? My intention is to couple it with a street-legal kit such as the ones below: http://www.trickdual....com/yamaha.php or http://www.bajadesig...Number=121300BU Thanks! -Klaus

    SM Rim sizes for 2001 YZ426F

    Folks, which Rim size should/could I use for a 2001 YZ426F supermotard conversion? From what I saw around, front wheel should be a 17x3.50 with 120/70 tires. What about rear? 17x4.25, 17x4.50 or even 17x5.00? And the tire, should it be 160/60? Thanks! -Klaus
  10. Guys, I've been looking for an aftermarket stator for my 2001 YZF 426 that could provide me with enough DC current to power-up street-legal kits out there (50W should do). Browsing through the forum and elsewhere I found references to Trailtech (100W), Moose (50W) and Electrosport (35W) stators, but they don't seem to be available anymore, pretty much everyone is out of stock it seems. Like I said I need this as the cornerstone to my little project of a YZF 426 Street-Legal supermoto (I live in Brazil btw, it will be interesting getting a license for this vehicle here) - any pointers? * Anyone still making or with those in stock? * Could I just modify my original stator and/or flywheel to provide me with more DC power? * Perhaps some other stator from newer YZFs is compatible? (i.e., 2005 yzf 250)? * Anyone wanting to sell me theirs, in case they have it? Thanks! -Klaus

    YZF's Only...

    Mine's:
  13. guitars, I've compared the (same) chain fitting on both (old 'original' and new 'auto-decomp') cams, and I can tell you that the chain doesn't fit in the new cam as well as it fit in the original one. I sure wouldn't do it if I haven't heard that this is 'normal' and there are hundreds of bikes running with it without a glitch... I'm trusting you guys
  14. I just came back from the mechanic, and said him that it's Ok with this.. I saw that the chain doesn't fit 'all the way down' in the new cam. Was somewhat afraid but I've taken the risk. Never heard of any problems with this mod. Just hope that doesn't start with me :-( Thanks to all
  15. Hi. I know this may be a FAQ, but couldn't find anything exactly like this in the sticky thread about the 2004 auto-decompression cam in the YZ 426.. I bought this 2004 cam and my dealer is trying to install it. But he said that the tooth in the new cam are wider than the original one. So the 426 chain (also new) is not fitting exactly (not going all the way down) in the new, auto-decomp cam. Then he tried to install a 2004 chain but the situation got even worse: it won't fit in the intake cam (still original) and the crankshaft sprocket.. My dealer said that installing the 426 chain with the 2004 450 auto-decompressor cam would wear both the chain and the new cam, with possibility of eating my valves/piston when the chain jumps tooth.. so what can I do now? Is it safe to use the 426 chain with the 450 auto-decomp cam? what should I take extra care? Sorry for the big posting but this is urgent (i'm heading to the dealer tomorrow in order to check this out)... Thanks for any thoughts, Klaus
