    Torque Setting in Manual

    Has anyone experiense the torque setting in the yamaha manual begin incorrect. I replaced the oil filter and when replacing the cover I broke off on one the bolts with the torque wrench which was set to 10mn as per the manual. The other 2 bolts did not break but were stressed and were pretty close to breaking point and will need replacing. Either my torque wrench is not calibrated correct or the manual's setting are incorect. Any thought or experience regarding this.

    Hour meter vs distance?

    Interesting question... Probably depends on the riding terain.. I use the measure of Tanks of fuel. Ride slow there is less wear but uses less fuel, Ride fast more fuel.. I use the measure of 5 tanks of fuel which is +- 500km. This works very well for my Quad with no ODO...

    wr450 power

    Cool... Had my WR450F 05 on the dyno at Yamaha and they got 43.6 HP After a hour of tuning and re jetting they got it up to 48.7HP I noticed for your dyno chart that your bike made it max HP at 8500rpm. My one does it at 7000rpm.. Anyone now why.. might be the grey wire, which I have not yet cut. Cannot wait to give it a try...

    GPS power

    I went to the hobby shop and got the components and made a 12vdc to 3vdc converter. Connected it on the battery and soldered a dean connector for easy removal. Works great. http://www.wsdeans.com/products/plugs/ultra_plug.html

    What Exhaust are you using

    On the issue of being to loud, here in South Africa the sport is not regulated in the same way as in the USA so the 94db regulation does not exist. I do agree that some bikes are just to noisy but I want power as well as a good sound...
