    2018 YZ450F Maps for Trail Riding

    The heavier flywheel also makes it harder to stall the engine because of the extra inertia.

    2018 YZ450F Maps for Trail Riding

    If you really are going to use the bike for trails/woods riding I would install a heavier flywheel, either a GYTR one from Yamaha or a stealthy one. It really makes the bike smoother as it slows the engine down. The power is still there, just not as abrupt making the engine very manageable and smooth.

    JGR Done!

    I saw a brand new KTM 125 SX that had a seam on the left side radiator spray coolant when the bike was ridden.

    My 15 yz450 fouling plugs

    Let me know what you find as my friend is having similar issues with his '14, foul a plug put a new one in and it runs fine for a while. He hasn't changed the flywheel on his. I'm starting to think that there may be a coil/stator issue. He didn't start having issues until the weather turned cold either.

    Yz450f bad backfire..

    If any of the exhaust pipe fittings, or the gasket at the exhaust manifold junction, are loose and not sealing you will have backfiring also.

    Yz450f bad backfire..

    What fuel are you using? I ask because my '10 would backfire on deceleration when I used gas with ethanol. Never did it with non-ethanol or vp fuel. I'd call Dr.D and ask them about the map, maybe try running all zeroes, stock.

    YZ 450 2014 LOOSE FRONT END

    Factory connection sells an compression adjuster tool that fits under the bars. Very easy to use.

    Make your 2014 air box sand friendly!

    Stock shroud intake is curved so that roost doesn't have a straight shot into it where the cycra shroud is a straight shot.
  9. Factory Effex will also make custom, DX1, graphics for the cycra shrouds. You can buy the JGR replica graphics also, just let them know that it's for the cycra shrouds.

    2014 yz450 mod?

    Cycra will have one available shortly and it's probably the best one for the money. JGR is helping them develop it.

    Brake pedal fitment questions

    I would check the part numbers and if they are the same between the years then it will work.

    Fitting '10 - '13 wheels in your '14 YZ450

    I would like to know how well it lasts as I was told by TCR that the bearings would not have enough surface, thickness, to handle the load.

    Steering Stem Bearing Race Removal

    Just to let you guys know Yamaha has a bearing with a built in seal, keeps the water out very well, to replace the stock top bearing. If you have had issues I'd recommend using that bearing. Search the forum and you will find it.

    Increased gas tax for WA

    I wish that we could make King county their own state, that would solve a lot of the problems.

    Washington Increased gas tax for WA
