    '08 300 Rebuild/Refresh - Pictorial

    I enjoyed this thread, thank you Jay.
  4. Sorry man, this is simply not true, There was talk of a merger a few years ago but that was shot down. I did the exact same thing in 2009 and don't miss it a bit.

    CRF 450 Doesn't run underwater...what?

    I assume you drained the air box/boot as well?

    Nice to see at least one person posting up a pic of their hourmeter.

    2010 YZ450 Cold weather starting

    If someone is confident in their own intelligence they probably don't worry about other people assuming if they are stupid or not... especially on a message board. imo of course. Good luck trying to start your dirt bike.

    If it always ran right, you wouldn't need the tuner! lol. Anyway, as I previously mentioned we agree the YZ tuner is fine for most people. It has few enough adjustments that it would be hard for most people to screw it up. It would be nice though in the future to have the option of at least the same amount of tuning power available on the other bikes, if not more. I would love to be able to be able to run a data logger as well.

    Kind of like comparing the $2k cheaper 09 YZ with the 2010 YZ huh?

    I disagree, in my opinion the use of a laptop is a very good thing. However, it probably wouldn't be for anyone that is interested in the most basic adjustments you can get by with. The KX tuner is head and heels more advanced than the YZ tuner, and that is before you even consider the data logging mode it offers. For anyone that has any experience using a Power Commander or similar devices on their street bikes, they would probably consider the YZ tuner very rudimentary. Which may not be a bad thing, depending on your perspective. I am hoping that before I make my purchase that someone will be selling a more advanced tuning system for the YZ. I am sure most of the top teams are not using the basic factory tuner. YZ Tuner: KX Tuner:

    I wouldn't say it is "better" than the other tuners, it is however more convenient. The Yamaha tuner is the most basic and least sophisticated of any of them, has the least amount of options and allows the fewest adjustments. As has already been mentioned however, the Yamaha tuner is small, portable, and doesn't require a laptop. It is perfect for 90% of riders and with only a few adjustable settings it is likely comparatively easier to not get lost in the programming. I imagine that most casual dirt bike riders are not the most technically advanced group of people.
  15. With only a $900 difference you are either getting a great offer for the 2010 or a crappy offer for the 2009. $900 isn't that bad. Personally I wouldn't even consider the $2-3k overcharge many guys are currently paying in the US for the 2010.
