  1. Hi guys. I've riden a friends CRF450x on a MX track and know I like the bike. I'm thinking about looking at an 06 CRF450x that is set up for the street. I would be using it as a daily commuter about 50 miles round trip and would get up to 60mph. Does anyone see any issues with using the bike for that? I know the CRF's have small oil pans and I'm concerned I would be changing the oil to often or that I would always be to high in the RPM's to cruise at 60 mph. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Is a CRF450x a good bike for commuting

    Thanks. I started reading a bunch of the old posts about plating a CRF and think I'll find something else. I dont want to change the oil weekly and fill up the gas daily.

    New here, first bike, 03 YZ250F

    Welcome. I've always enjoyed the 03-05 years. I think they handle pretty well. I agree with everyone else. Check your suspension linkage and wheel bearings. The suspension linkage isnt fun to take out, clean and lube but it's worth it.
  4. I'm just curious how much it the same between my 05 yz250f and any of the yz250's? Most specifically the plastics. But it would be nice to know whats the same for when im search around in ebay. I'm having a hard time finding white plastics for my 250f Thanks

    What parts are the same on a 250f and a 250?

    Thanks. Looks like the rear fender is different between the 2 and 4 strokes. Anyone know where I can get a WHITE plastic kit for my 05? Already checked Ebay, Motorcycle Superstore and Rocky Mountain.
  6. I hate changing the oil on my 05. It's such a pain with all the oil lines. Does anyone make a kit that moves the oil storage from the frame to the engine? Or any kind of modification I can do so that oil changes are less of a pain? Thanks.

    Question for 03-05 YZ250f owners.

    Well thats good to know. The write up I read said to pull the lines and that frame strainer. Getting that darn strainer out is a giant PPITB. From now on I will just remove the filter cover and pull those two bolts. Thanks.

    Bike vs quad animosity?

    I like quads but prefer my bikes. I do hate how quads tend to dry the track out and kick up a lot of dust. Also, it seems like people that ride quads are oblivious to the dirtbike behind them trying to pass. Most quads ride the middle of the track which is annoying. out of my way quad!!!
  9. Went to my dealer and they were $10 a piece. Is there anywhere online I can get them cheaper individually or by the case? Thanks

    YZ oil change questions!?!?!?

    As long as you got the majority of the oil out you should be fine.

    where can I buy oil filters online for cheap

    Thanks for the input. I'll have to look into the reusable filters. I saw some stainless ones on Ebay. Any suggestions on what to look for in a good reusable filter? Thanks
  13. I'm thinking about picking up an 05 KX 250F for around $2000. I've seen some negative stuff in threads on here and was wondering if they are really that bad? Anyone that has owned one can you please tell me your experience with the bike. Thanks

    700 2 stroke

    That is straight up insane. If it is 3 times faster then my YZ250 then you can count me out. Although, if you panic rev it in the air it probably has enough torque to bring the front wheel up real fast.

    Broken Collar bone

    I broke my collar bone in September and had surgery to fix it. I was wondering what is the best way for me to protect my collar bone now when I ride? I tried on some chest protectors but they all seem to pinch my skin against the steel plate in my shoulder which hurts like a bitch. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Broken Collar bone

    Thanks, so do you think I should leave the plate in there or have it removed?
  17. Stupid but simple question. Just wondering if they are interchangeable. Thanks

    YZ125 frame the same as YZ250?

    Thanks
  19. Anyone know where I can get white plastics for my 1999 YZ250. Everyone seems to be out of stock.

    Buy This X raced 03

    This shiat is sooo funny. I need a new yamaha blue power band for my bike.
  21. Need to know if I can use a yz125 radiator on my yz250. Thanks
  22. I have a 1999 yz250 and my frame is pretty beat up. I can find a nice used frame on Ebay for a decent price but I need to know what other years are interchangeable with the 1999. Thanks
  23. Thanks, thats awesome info. If I hadn't already bought a new tripple tree set-up I probably would have went with a newer frame.

    Ordered a 2006 RC125SX

    My neighbor just bought an Xtreme 125, not sure what model but it has drum rear brakes and non fluid filled rear coil over. Anyone know which model? I just had to order a bigger/better bike so I just ordered the 2006 RC125SX black with black rims. I can't wait to get the bike and see how much better it is over the Xtreme.

    Rate My Bike.

    Sounds like it has some decent parts. How much are you going to sell them for?
