    7 yrs old, still runs perfect! Sell for a 450?

    all I can say is WOW!! I would love to do that to mine. I'll have to see what it would cost to get the parts!

    No, I didn't have the forks re-valved. I just put new seals, wipers, bushings and oil. I actually haven't even looked into it. From what I understand, the bikes are set-up for someone in the 150-175 range so it would make sense to re-valve. I really don't wan't to spend a ton of money to make the suspension better, I just wanted to adjust what I have and get the best result for my weight. The rear shock is stock, never rebuilt. The bike has less than 50 hours on it. Don't really know how often that should be. I think I'll keep it for a while especially considering the price of a new one and the fact that I only ride one every couple of months. Thanks for the feedback.

    That's a good idea. I'll just have to justify the need for a "back-up" bike to the boss! Maybe I'll remind her what she gets to play in!!
  4. Here are a couple of pictures of my 2000 YZ426F taken a couple of days ago. I absolutely love this bike, however, I rode a friends '06 YZ450 and was jealous of the soft, light, plush feel. The power didn't feel much different (his bike is 100% stock though). I recently rebuilt my forks, but it still does not feel quite as nice. Is it because of the alum. frame? I considered selling this one and buying an '07 450, but can't seem to seperate myself from it. I installed a 450 exhaust cam last week so that I can just kick and go. We'll see how that works out. Any suggestions for fork and rear shock settings for a 200 pound rider? I do not ride to hard, I just wan't to cruise around in the desert and on the dunes without beating myself to death. I mainly cruise around with the kids and friends at a moderate pace. Any other mods that are worth while? What do you think?

    You may need to airbag it though. Be careful, that's a long tow trlr. Congrats, we love our '07 Billet FS2300. One minor problem with the heater is all. The dealer changed the fuel pump gears before we picked it up and so far, it works great.
