    Excellent. I have the same issue. They look handy and are reasonably priced.

    Who's all got an 07??

    07 FOR ME!!!! ITS ALL SWEETNESS. Did own a 01 YZ426F. That was too much of a brute, went to the 250f
  7. I think this is a very good place to start. I also purchased a 2007 Yz250F and had to adjust the idle screw for that same reason.

    Insurance Companies

    I have searched the forums, so as to not repost this topic. I can not find something specific to Canadian Insurance Companies. I recently purchased a 2007 YZ250f and can not find a company that offers full insurance. Do you know of any companies that deal strictly with offroad bikes? I am getting really frustrated with the lack of support in this area. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Considering a 125.

    Any riders out there on the new yz125's I need your advice. I currently ride a yz426f. Race, and trail ride. The bike in my opinion is a great all around 4 stroke. I am in great physical shape, and can handle the weight. Lately though, I have been riding some friends 125's. Ie 2006 yz125, KTM 125 SX. I love the feel of these bikes, nicely tuned and cared for. My question is, I am looking to purchase a brand new bike. I am convinced on two stroke, but I am questioning a 250, because I want something I can really ride "all out". On a 125 I feel I can ride it to its max, and really enjoy the ride. Should I consider something bigger? I weigh 195, 6'2" and race beginer. Thanks for any light you can shed on this topic....

    Probable Repost **Mod List**

    I bought a CRF100F for my girl friend. She blazed through the beginning learning curve like a fat kid on smarties. I digress; So now we have a bike with too short of a first gear. I have heard of some sprocket changes and what not, and I think I will definitely change teeth #'s. Anyways, to get back on track. What is a decent list of mods that I could throw into the bike, that make it a little more suited to motocross riding and her ever increasing skill level. Thanks.

    Thank you very much for the resources. I have exhausted those sites, and I am in contact with C.M.R.C. Trying to find where the need for the business would be.

    under water yz 426

    I think BergArabia makes some very solid, and thoroughly thought out points. How mechanically inclined are you? Do you feel that you could pull it apart yourself? I recently did an entire rebuild, and it cost me 300 or so for parts. I had bent a shifting fork. I think, if you have the time, the place and the know how to tear it down, I would give it a shot. You could in the end, save upwards of 1000 dollars. You might even feel really proud after pulling it down, and redoing all that work and having the satisfaction of saying Yeah, I rebuilt it, I feel confident.
