    A day on the pipe: 2011 300xc break in ride

    I am about to drop the red spring in. It was my next step. The ignition performance setting however is an interesting point. I'll be checking that immediately. Thanks for the responses!

    A day on the pipe: 2011 300xc break in ride

    Glad to hear you like your new 300. I just picked up a 2010 300xc myself and I'm in love with the way it handles. I don;t however share your same view on power on tap instantly. Mine seems to be a little reluctant at times to lift the front wheel easily. Right now I'm running the yellow spring. I did turn the screw out some, but I still feel like I might want a little more hit just to get the front wheel over obstacles. I'm not whining, I love the bike, I even would go so far as to say I like the engine. Just would like a little more snap off the bottom. Alot of that is probably on me, as I'm a motocrosser who still owns a KX450 to ride on the tracks, but I'm just getting into harescrambles and trail riding again after living sleeping and breathing moto only for like 10 years. Any tips to get a little more snap while maintaining the overall rideability would be most welcome. So far, the only thing I've done is install the JD Jet kit and jetted the bike to run well at my altitude. Thanks.
  3. Sounds like you were at the same buddy race I was. CRA? If so, That was some of the worst race conditions I have ever ridden in. I wouldn't sweat it too much. Really gnarly, really rutted, and really muddy.

    WTH is MXA's problem with Yamaha Chassis?

    I had all kinds of trouble with my 07 YZ450F pushing thru turns. I put a set of offset Pro-Taper clamps on it and was amazed at the difference. IT would now carve a nice line, without my front wheel wanting to wash out on me. It definitely was an improvement. I had however heard that they fixed this push in 08.

    Pre-Ride maintenance

    Hi folks, first post here. Just picked up my 06 YZ250F from the dealer yesterday. I've never had a 4-stroke before, coming off an 04 YZ250, so this is uncharted territory for me. I was wondering aside from the obvious greasing of the bearings and adjustments that I'd be familiar with from setting up my 2-strokes, what other things do I need to do to prepare my YZ250F for the upcoming season? I'm looking for 4 stroke specific advice here. I like to take good care of my bikes, and I dont want to miss doing something that I would regret later. Thanks in advance for your help and advice.
