    06 450 crankcase crack

    Have an 06 with a cracked right case. For some reason you have to buy the set of left and right from all the places I have checked. Why? Are they machined to match? Could I get a used right off ebay and use it with my good left side? Thanks, Cy

    06 450 crankcase crack

    I this one broke around the oil drain bolt. Looks like it was hit by something.

    06 450 crankcase crack

    Thank you, one more question. The yamaha owners manuals I have had in the past (02 426) went though a complete teardown of the motor. Is that still the case or do they now have a separate service manual? Thanks, Cy

    06 450 crankcase crack

    Thank you todds924, I suspected as much but hoped it wasn't true. tnl, which is harder, replying with a quick answer or replying to tell me to search? Cy PS I did search through about 5 pages about crankcase problems without finding the answer. Only questions about welding cracked cases.

    How to go faster...

    I recently bought me a CRF250 and love it... I go to the track with my hubby but I feel soooo slow. How can I up my speed gradually? Mostly the corners. I tend to slow way down before I get there. Are there some good pointers on how to go faster? It's probably just getting brave enough... But I would like some input. Thanks

    R for X flywheel swap anyone?

    My wife wants to tame her R down just a bit by adding a heavier flywheel. Thought maybe someone here would want to go the other way with their X and work out a swap? Cy

    Fonseca down?

    Saw Ernesto today. Surgery went well. There have been some good signs, but he has a very long road ahead. It is still not clear the extent of spinal damage and probably wont be clear for a good deal of time. Keep praying for him. Cy

    Not true. Cy

    Fonseca down?

    Doctors have been performing surgery since this morning. We will get a call when he is out. The fact they are doing surgery is a good sign. A neck donut would have done nothing for Ernesto. Cy

    Fonseca down?

    I didnt know him until Tuesday. We were called in to apply the Halo. Cy

    Fonseca down?

    I am sure he would appreciate your positive outlook, but it is the spinal cord damage that is the issue here not the C7 fracture itself. The big problem comes when there is movent in the vertebral column, pinching, bending or cutting the spinal cord. Your injury may have been very different from his. I am not allowed to comment on his condition, but I will see him again tomorrow afternoon and can pass along any well-wishes anyone may wish to send. Cy

    Knee Braces????

    Thank you. I used to come to this site alot when I rode a DRZ400 and then my YZ426F. I am an orange man now so ktmtalk is my home now, but I still drop by on occasion. I enjoy reading the knee brace testimonials, how they saved a knee, a marriage, a whale, helped someone stop smoking. It is good stuff. Cy

    Knee Braces????

    What you are exeperiancing is not knee protection, rather unloading of damaged cartilage. Knee braces can be effective in pain relief from OA or articulating surface damage, do not, however, confuse that with protection. Cy

    Best Knee Brace for Tibial Plateau Fracture?

    What did they repair and what was left unrepaired? In other words, what instability(s) are you bracing, are you unloading a damaged side of the tibia? What type of ACL reconstruction was performed (if one was done)? Cy

    CTI Wrist brace Good or Bad ??

    It is a well made brace and can be set to limit movement in most directions depending on your injury, however, be prepared to purchase it out of pocket to the tune of 5-600 for the off the shelf, 1G plus for the custom. Very few insurance companies will cover it. There are no codes for billing it to the insurance, innovation sports is trying to get billing codes added. Cy

    Knee brace advice needed!

    I am an orthotist in California (brace maker). The CTi and asterisk are very good ACL braces but DonJoy and Townsend make a brace with much better M-L support. While I dont agree with the idea that a knee brace will protect a healthy, stable knee, it will help an unstable knee by providing support to a torn, partially torn or stretched ligament. A custom brace (no matter the brand) will run 1200-1700 ea depending on your area. You copay schedule will determine your cost. You can get them without a RX. An off the shelf will run 50-500 ea depending on the brand and level of support. A CTi2 is not the same as an Asterisk, but Innovation Sports does make an off the shelf that is identicall to the Asterisk, but it is around 400 ea. As far a cost goes, the Asterisk is a very good deal but you have no chance of your insurance paying for any of it. Cti's are really sort of a partial-custom brace IMO. Cy
