    MX is a Death Sport

    Shop ripping me off?

    I owned a 2001 Yamaha YZ426F and did all the same work by myself, replacing the cylinder, piston, rings, valves, valve springs, cam chain and all. It cost me over $1,200 in parts alone. I took my time and put a lot of work into it, But when it was done, it was one, it was one damn fast YZ426F . In a drag it would beat most stock 450s.

    Moving to Denver

    Colorado is full. You should consider staying where you currently reside.

    2010 yzf 450 best map with dr. D pipe.

    I used the Jay Marmont map with my Dr.D full system and it was a night and day difference. It seems to rev much quicker and I think they complement each other really well.
  5. This is wrong and a rip-off double standard, an unfair law and worth fighting in court!!! If this is true the 4 X 4's should also pay and stick it to the mountain bikers as well.
  6. Yeah! diesel gets more MPG, but consider it costs .60 - .75 cents a gallon more, it defeats the purpose. I'll take my 390 HP 5.7 L stone stock 3/4 Ton Hemi over any Eco-Boost!!!any day... Drive one if you don't believe me.

    YZ450F or CRF450R, down to 2??

    The Dealer makes the difference for me.....Yamaha dealer race support in my area is far better than the Honda dealers.....Discounts and technical race support make a huge difference......

    2008 yz 450f will not start after rebuild

    Check your valve shims and make sure they are all in place properly. When removing the head they can easily fall out or move causing the symptoms you are describing with incorrect compression.

    Is this a good deal for a 08 yz250f?

    It's fair. Deal on it.

    YZ 250F oil capacity

    Put a quart in and check the dipstick.

    450f in the 1/4 mile?

    On the street, my old FZ1 will whale on any 450. Ha! Ha!
  13. Done!! This is a perfect example of all the Jackasses we have in United States Congress and Senate that allow this to happen.

    2001 XR400 question

    No, the XR is a bullet proof and proven design that has been around for several decades. I have owned several and have ridden them hard for years without ever having to do a valve adjustment. The newly designed bikes are much more touchy. I wish they all had the XR reliability.

    Anyone had a leaky fuel cock on a yz426f

    My Yamaha dealer sold me the O-ring, and it was simple and cheap to replace. No big deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
