  1. I found out the answer. Pro Taper bar's for the '07 450 "Stock or OEM" you have to buy from Yamaha. And yes they are $189. The closest bar to the one that came with the bike is the pro taper contour at $62+ from most online merchants. The model is the YZ high bend. The pro taper evo model with the YZ high bend will be out at the end of October and will be apx. $82+ I got this answer from their Marketing guy......Big E who told me they made the bar's special for Yamaha so they don't sell them. I do not know the exact differences but he said these (yzhigh) were the absolute closest. Hope it helps and put's and end to anyone else's search.
  2. That manual doesn't have recomended rebound settings for the forks?
  3. Thanks Gray! Alway's can count on you....sorry if this question has been covered already though!?!
  4. Owners manual was lost in the flood. Just changed the springs out for my size (245 lbs) and need and idea what to set the clickers at for both the forks and rear shock. Any recomendation on sag? Anyone know off hand what the factory recomends? I looked all over for online manual but no luck and I'm going riding tomorrow!
  5. I called Chapparal and they said they could get the bars....but he sounded confused as well. He said they would be $187? Pro Taper Evo are $89 and Contour models are $69....both all come with a variety of bends. Is there anyway for sure to find out from Yamaha or pro taper if these bars are available as aftermarket or just as OEM (even though Pro taper is the supplier)
  6. Another thread references that the bar is the pro taper contour bar with an OEM bend. The only Contour model I can find come in multiple bends. Where do I get the exact bar that came on the bike? The dealers are confuseded as well? In the Yamaha specs they claim this bar to be new and raised 8mm so this is the one I want. Anyone know the exact bar price and who can ship it to me? Bonus points if you can come up with a reason why in hell they had to make this one so hard to figure out.
  7. The '08 bikes are supposed to be out "early" this year according to MXA scoop. Might want to wait until they hit the dealer...then for sure you'll be seeing some $5999's on the '07's?
  8. Thanks again Gray for this advice as well as all of the other information you post. I've learned and passed on a lot of info that I've garnered here.
  9. It looks like the water level went to the level of the oil filter but not to the height of the top end or the airbox, carb, spark plug areas. Regreasing is just time so no biggie there. The bikes were probably in the water from dusk until dawn pretty much. Garage door blew inwards and basement door snapped completely in two under the door handle like a saloon door. Muddy mess.
  10. Damn.....I guess the good news is that the 5 bikes have 5 owners so, everyone is gonna get an education on the inner workings of the yzf. Thanks gray......and uhm, I may be needing your phone number too. j/k
  11. 2005 2006 2007 Yup, all three of 'em. (and two '06 250f's) What needs to be done? (Flood was today in NY watch the new's, insurance stuff needs to be sussed out but.........will the scoot's go again? Gray racer and others, I need details!
  12. Also need the stock Pro Taper handle bar? I beleive the bars were designed for the bike so they are "stock" So a reed/henry/windham/carmichael bar would all be the wrong height? Am I correct? Specs for the '07 say special bar bend raises the grip 8mm to expand cockpit. Yes. Opening day crash will cost close to $1000. Visor, goggles and helmet (Arai) all broken as well. (Not me, a buddy)
  13. Is there a company that makes a better one? I know motion pro (25.99) or (34.99) and sunline (49.99)make throttle cables for the '07 450f via motosport. Stock is $25.99 from power parts plus? (Doubt they stock it, just one of those places that sells Yam parts database on discount) Also need the stock Pro Taper handle bar? I beleive the bars were designed for the bike so they are "stock" So a reed/henry/windham/carmichael bar would all be the wrong height? Am I correct? Specs for the '07 say special bar bend raises the grip 8mm to expand cockpit. Yes. Opening day crash will cost close to $1000. Visor, goggles and helmet (Arai) all broken as well. (Not me, a buddy)
  14. Supercross

    Barcia won both of his 85cc moto's yesterday at Lake Whitney over Eli Tomac. But Tomac won the super mini which is interesting because they both are 14 (barcia looks too big for a 85cc in the video they posted yesterday) and you would think that the 4 stroke 150cc would be stronger than the 112cc? suzuki modified bike? maybe it's tough to go back and forth between 2 and 4 stroke. i'll check the results from saturday later so maybe barcia just tipped over or something
  15. What are you guy's calling "high speed" I ride only motocross so it is rare that I'm holding third open for very long on the 4 speed '05 450? Is it safe for me to assume I won't have the "high speed disadvantage" (I'm 5'11" 240) and have RG3 upper and lower with pro tapers.
