    Couldn't say it any better....

    Sounds like it may be a jetting problem, or ?. I would probably just do the usual and replace the spark plug, clean air filter, check carb and boots for vacume leaks, pretty much all the cheap stuff before you go out and spend lots of money at the dealer. If none of that helps any, pull out your jets and check to see what your running. BTW: this may sound stupid but have you adjusted your idle? When the choke is on it tends to cause a higher idle becuase its running richer and maybe your idle screw just needs to be turned up. Hope this helps- Ethan

    Hey, Im thinking you should look into exhaust tape. Its heat resistant and comes in a roll so you can apply it wherever you want. (I think) Never accually tried it myself, and it may not be the prettiest thing, but I'd choose comfort over looks ANY DAY- Hope this solves it Something along the lines of this, trick colors too! http://www.heatshieldproducts.com/bgcq_colored_exhaust_wrap.php Ethan-

    Yes, lol it accually is a fake from one of those mag's. And if it was real (which its not) it would probably be a discrace to one of the best quads ever built! -Ethan
  6. Hey Edide, I seek your expertice! I have a 2006 yfz450 and I posted awhile ago about my jetting. SO- the new problem, I put in a 45 pilot, and a 168 main, becuase they didnt have any 48 piilots in stock. I started it up, and its still has a hanging idle! I havnt ridden it any but started it up in place and it annoyed me that its still there. Any ideas? Thanks for any input! -ethan
  7. Yup, and now I have a HMF exhaust in the mail, along with some risers and bars. Not too much extras yet, I just got it 3 weeks ago but slowly I can tell its gonna turn into a money pit...
  8. lol yeah i know, I accually traded my 2003 yz250f with no 4th gear, and leaky head and base gaskets for it! I just wanted something different for a little while but im already missing my two wheels!
  9. Yeah, I had the round skinny sand paper like disc's. Two broken ones of those and I moved to the slightly larger one. I could have used other tools but wanted to take it slow so I made sure I didnt have a 198$ mess up.
  10. Yeah it was quite the experence lol. The two I burned out i accually didnt rather than me setting the dremel down and stepping on it\dropping it : ( lol. Third one worked though, and it finished off the job. Im just that good to manage the impossible!
  11. Accually, if you think about it, the stock fenders hardly do anything at all. After I cut mine I didnt notice a difference at all from the mud, dirt, or water.... +2's are headed my way anywho so the big baggy stockers were going to come off eventually. I tried to stay away from the ellis cut becuase everyone and their mother has it...This is was most original and unique cut Ive seen and I'm really likin' it.
  12. 8 hours, three dremel bits, and a messy garage later.....I accually got the front fenders to where I like them! I finnally got up the balls to cut up my new white plastics, and they look really good! Also took a toothbrush and toothpaste to the plastics to make 'em nice and shiney again! Let me know what you guys think! Before... AFTER!

  14. I would just ask him why he replaced all of that, see if it was just its time or if something accually went. i.e. connecting rod, crank, etc. If so then you may have other problems to worry about but usually racers just replace the usual after a well-needed rebuild. Just be sure to get the history on the bike. -Ethan

    Im pretty sure NYmXer nailed this one on the head. It is a very common Yamaha problem for the rubber plug to fall out. They put this in there so that the bikes and quads (if ever needed) can accept manual decompression. http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e343/Yamerhaw/decomp_plug_02.jpg This is a picture of the plug on the front of the head, just above the header of the exhaust. This is the plug and hole your talking about right? If so, use the link from NYmXer and purchase yourself a cool new trick decomp. plug from the TT store- Ethan
