    09 yz450 for $3100?

    where is the ad? curious what it looks like .
  2. i bouihgt a used yz450f a while back and havent really rode it only a hour on the meter. it had about 25 on it when i bought it. . any way i check the valve clearances yesterday and im a bit pissed of now. the bike is only supost to have a hand full of hours on it and it was overall clean other then plastics, event he linkage bearings where packed with grease. anyway here is the valve clearances. 0 0 .23 .18 0 0 0 zero .10 .30 195 181 160 shim pad size i have no clue why the orginal owner put these shim pads in but do i have anything to worry about with the excessively large gap (.30mm) in the right valve. the only thing that should change is how late the valve opens right? i doubt i have to worry about piston contact since .15mm isnt that big of a gap but i could be wrong. im just going to order a 175-185 shims and that should get me in the ball park. didnt have a chance to see what the shims where in the exhaust side yet. just venting a bit pissed off that some one is that incompten to set the valve clearance that far off. funny part is i bought the bike from a little racing bike shop that sponsers a few of the local series. and not to mention that the valve caps had to be over torqued i could harley brake the bolts lose with a twrench.

    What's a fair price?

    you will get better deals at the end of the months. my rule of thumb is i walk for more then 5,000 otd price. i would say go for the 08 instead they will give you a deal you just have to wait for it. buy it like a car shop around find a good deal then try and call a closer dealer and see if they will match the price.

    Best 250 2-Stroke Trail Bike?

    if you are indeed 14 i would stay away from a jap 250 two stroke . im 19 and it way to much power. if i got another 250 for woods i would be looking at them in this order a gas gas, husky or even a ugly pumpkin . and im all about blue bikes. now if its mx a yz is a very very strong motor just to much in the woods in my opinion and i think im a decent rider . also why do you say 125 suck in the woods? they are one of the best you can ride it very aggressive with out getting it to much trouble.
