  1. Yeah those are nice SKID PLATES, what about ENGINE GUARD/ CASE SAVERS. The CF one is still one of those big one piece deals that I'm not really interested in. I was looking for ones that bolt on to the side.
  2. Not that I've seen.
  3. Engine guard/case savers for the 06/07 YZ 450? Not looking for those huge offroad style skid plates. I've seen a GYTR water pump cover but thats it.
  4. Skid Plate ARC Folding levers Protaper EVO Speed Bleeders Thats what I would add to my list.
  5. Coming of an 05 YZ450, this thing kills it. Lighter narrower turns on a dime and the motor is awesome. Plenty of power just a lot easier to handle. I thought I was having a bit of a bog, but I think I am just riding a gear to high. Still thinking 4spd. A stap of the clutch and I pulled through it. The clutch pull is butter. Never rode an 06 but I give the 07 a
  6. The outer cap can be removed with an adjustable wrench that opens up to 2in. Harbor Freight has one for $12. The inner just buy the $20 tool and make things easy on yourself. PVC will work fine for the seal driver, just cut it in half. Thats about all you need.
  7. Any opinions
  8. Bolt-on Compression Adjusters for Yamaha KYB forks (Patent no. D0515984) '05-'06 YZ125/250 YZ250F/450F PN: MX-CAK00-MB $84.95 Kit includes two adjusters, 4 set screws & an allen wrench for installation.
  9. On an 05 450 what are people running for their volume in the outer chamber. I know the manual calls for 200-300cc. Is there much difference in this range as far as feel goes? Harder with more softer with less, or does that only affect the inner chamber?
  10. As posted by Shawn Mc. Any questions, holler his way!!! Re: Blown Fork Seal Heres the quicky procedure: Assuming the fork is off the bike... Unscrew the large cap, dump the oil. screw the cap back on. Loosen up the rebound adjuster nut. Holding the fork somehow (how is up to you) push the fork together and the damper rod will poke out the bottom. Snag that sucker with a 12-14mm wrench. At this point, take the rebound adjuster nut gismo off the damper rod. Its just screwed on the end and jammed there with the jam nut that has two flats ground on it (17mm). Once the rebound adjuster is removed, squeeze the fork again, take the wrench off the damper rod and re-unscrew the big cap and pull the entire damper out of the fork. Pick the spring up off the floor and wipe up the oil you just spilled too...knuckle head... Now, to replace the seals. Use a small screw driver or a paint scraper or something really thin to pry up the dust cover on the seal. Dig the retaining clip out with a small screw driver and a pair of needle nose pliers. Once you get the clip out, you simply slide hammer the fork apart. Bang bang bang..its a part...wipe up the oil you just spilled...man your making a huge mess...pay attention to what your doing ok...jeese... A smart guy would change the oil in the damper too. Its easy enough. Just unscrew the center of the top of the damper (compression clicker) and then to remove that assembly slowly compress the damper rod. Compressing the damper rod will reduce the vacuum that is pulled when your trying to pull the "compression bolt" out. Once its out, just dump the oil...stroke the rod...to aid remove of fluid...get your mind out of the gutter... Reassembly is reverse everything, assuming you understand how to install the new seals. Use a baggie or something like a baggie over the end of the fork tube when you slide the new seals on to prevent damaging the tiny edge that does all the sealing work...sux when you gotta do it again because you didn't practice safe seal... Stock oil height in the outside chamber is 412cc. Put 200 in the inner chamber. Some will burp out of the inner chamber. Make sure you pour that off/out the holes in the inner damper. If you do both chambers in both forks you'll need roughly a quart and a half of fork oil (I use Synthetic ATF) Anything else? __________________
  11. I doubt that the oil filter has anything to do with it. It only takes 10 -15 minutes for Air Filter Oil to get tacky.

  13. Another one for a mans brain http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f204/munchieu/MansBrain.gif
  14. That was just GREAT!!
  15. Does anyone have the clip of that? I want to see it again.
