  1. Check out the tube saddle. www.tubesaddle.com It is a cheater setup that is basically a small insert between the tube and the rim that makes it impossible to pinch flat. Allows to use 8-10 PSI out west in rocks where most require 15-18 PSI. I have used Mousses, ultra HD tubes, and other "flat preventers" and the tube saddle is far and away the most sano. No lubes, balls, greases, etc. Just install and air it up. Works great.
  2. Thanks Jim. Snowing now in Cleveland so I guess I have no excuses not to take the time to make a few mods!
  3. Thanks 2grimjim. Where did you get the cap and overflow bottle? Did you simply make your own overflow bottle or did you buy one?
  4. I keep having issues with leaky coolant o rings on my 07 YZ450F- the ones that seal the solid coolant pipes near the exhaust header and the water pump. It's worst where the coolant pipe fits into the head near the exhaust header. I use Evans/Zip Ty coolant and it seems to deteriorate the o rings so they get hard and leak. I do mostly woods riding and with the rekluse clutch the evans is the only solution that keeps it from constantly boiling. It's either the coolant or the heat, as the evans coolant allows the engine to run a bit hotter (doesn't boil, though!). I was going to get some viton o rings but I don't know the exact size to order. Anybody have any advice?
  5. Thanks I dinged the left side
  6. I have an 07 YZ450F that I use for desert racing. I recently dinged the lower left fork leg such that it's gouged through the chrome and is creating the obvious leaking seal issues. I love riding on the rocky goat trails and I guess this is the price I pay. A new leg is 300 bucks (ouch). I have read all the posts on how to "repair" the leg with jb weld and sandpaper but I really just want to do it right. Before I pop for the new part I thought I should at least look on ebay- might be able to buy an entire fork set for less than the OEM part. Since there are quite a bit of YZ parts out there does anyone know which parts will fit my 07 450F forks? For example will an 07 YZ 250F fork be the same parts? 06? You know what I mean. Any advice is appreciated.
