  1. OK, so I have been to Croom, nice place. I am looking for some local trials I can take my 14 year old son on to learn without the hour drive each way. I find it had to believe with all of this land that there are no trails to burn up.... If anyone knows of any, please let me know!

    Nice... I guess it will be decided in the trails and who has the biggest bawls. If speed won't take him, skill will fry him!

    My buddy just purchased a 2008 Canam 800X, he is saying it will stomp my YFZ450, anyone out there seen one in action. I know it is a 600 pound PIG so I am betting I will roast his ass, that and the fact I am 30 pounds lighter than him as well...

    Fully adjustable front and rear shocks
  5. The PSO snapped on install. Dose anyone have a Main Jet Adapter DJA001 I will pay for it and postage...

    The main jet is still in, I will mess with the air and idle settings. I cant imagine what else could be wrong...

    Ok, So I put on a new slip-on, installed a Dyno jet kit 48 pilot and 68 main, removed the air box cover. The quad fired right up and I rode it around my yard with TONS of power and instant throttle response. Fast forward 3 weeks to yesterday. I start the quad on the second try, ride it up into my truck and after the one hour trip the the pits,, I unload the quad it starts but reluctantly. Idles for about 45 seconds stalls out and will not restart. I have a full tank of gas so that is not it. I get home pull the carb and find the float was sticking a bit. Clean it all up put it back together and nothing. Gas is getting to the carb (at least the bowl if getting gas). ***!! I did notice these are three jets in my carb. I assume long thin brass screw on the bottom is the air mix? What is the big black screw knob near where the wires attach? HELP ME bruthas!

    Ok, So I picked up the quad. Now I am 6'3" with ape arms. I need a bar riser and bar set up. I ride in the woods and trails. I want to get a Pro Taper or Renthal. The stock bars hit my knees so I need height and width. What are your recommendations? I really do not want to change all of the cables...

    Cool, I intend to trail ride the quad. I did put new seals, impeller shaft, and bearings in the YZ400, still had the same issue but that is old news! I am about a day away from swinging a leg over the new quad and looking forward to it.

    Hey guys, I am about to get a mint 05 YFZ 450. I wanted to ask about over heating. I just got rid of a 98 YZ400F which, once I was able to start it, would always over heat and drip coolant out the weep hole on the bottom of the water pump which I guess is industry standard. So how is the YFZ on this? TIA
  12. Ok, ok, I know, search the archives! I just did on this and found a world of info. Glad to see it is a simple fix! A few seals, a Captian & Coke and some good old Deep Purpe in the background on Friday night and I will be good to go!
  13. I recently purchased a 98 YZ400F (only ridden it around the yard), I just finished messing around with it and was checking fluids. I noticed the radiator was not full, so I filled it up. Then I rolled it out and fired it up to set he idol ect. A bunch of coolant cam poring out of the bottom, so I tool the engine guard off and started it again to see where is was leaking. I noticed a small hole in the bottom of the water pump that looks like a screw is missing. It is not the coolant drain plug, but rather on the very bottom of the water pump in the case. Anyone know what this is? I am guessing a screw is missing?? Bill
  14. And according to the guys at Factory Effex, kits will filt from 1998 YZ400 all the way up to an 2002 YZ426...
  15. I am looking to put a new graphics kit on my 98 YZ400. I wanted to know if the kits offered for a 2002 YZ250 will fit my bike. I was under the impression that the bikes were pretty much the same? I found a nice Factory Effex FXR kit I like but can not find cross references for fitments.
