    What year bike to buy?

    i have an 05 and love it, been on the 09 and the big differents is the power, you never have a kick, the 07 is less of a kick than the 06 or 08 and you can still find new 07 at a good price. so i would go with the 07. but if money is there the 09 power is so easy. hope i have help

    steahly vs GYTR weights

    so i am leaving my crf450r for an yz250, at 45 i will mostly be riding in the woods. so what weight is best? the steahly add a spacer for the cover but is easy to put on, the gytr needs a puller but fits. i am going for the 11oz where is the best place to buy for price? thanks for your help

    how to check compression

    thanks for your help, i miss the days of two-stoke. i have good spark, new plug. i shot some starter fluid thought the carb, all i got was a pop. the timing is right on the dot, should it be a little before the dot? ::

    new head or not

    it sounds like i would be better off with an 06 and keep it stock but what else do i need to do to finish off my 05 450. i mean it that all just put in new valves and ride?

    new head or not

    new head or not

    that sounds good to get the 07 head but do i need to are is that over kill because the old head will work just as good.

    new head or not

    i have a 2005 crf450r with about 125 hours just reshim with 1.55 and 1.50 for the intake, ex. was fine. my question is should i buy a new head or just replace the valves when they 0 out again. or do i keep shimming it till i have no smaller shims left then new head and valves. thanks

    replacing ex. guides

    so lose guides will cause the valves to last half the time. and i have over 120 hours now. so 60 hours sounds good to me with out the new head.
