    My current 07 look

    Hey, is that a Devol skid plate? Bike looks great.

    Petroleum oil better?

    I've used Yamalube 4R for years without a problem. Easy to find. I change my oil about every 3 or 4 rides, and my filter every other oil change. I keep my bikes for about 3 years, and ride quite a bit. I'm glad I don't have an oil fetish.

    OTD prices on left over new 06's & 07's

    yep. Makes sense. I only bought my bike @ John Burr because I've been going there since age 9. I'm 38. Off topic..they have a new owner AND they fired Vic (parts) who has been there for 27 years:thumbsdn: . Bye bye, John Burr, hello L.A. Yamaha.

    OTD prices on left over new 06's & 07's

    7K for an 06? I paid $6500 OTD in April for my 06 SE at John Burr, and I thought that was a bit high.
  5. I ran a K&N on my 2001 chevy truck (stock intake). Same thing..lots of dust in the airboot(or whatever you want to call it). Same thing with my girlfriends ranger. The K&N's got sold at a yardsale. I would never run one in my bike. In my opinion (and experience), they don't filter dust effectively.

    1-industries "Hurricane" kit

    Did you run out of money for a dictionary?

    New Parts For My Bike!look!

    Use a twin air. After you run the k&n, look inside the airboot. It will be full off dust, no matter how well you prep it. Tires look good!

    05' crf450 vs. 07' yz450f

    I don't get this stuff I'm reading lately about how different "off road" racing/riding is from moto. I've raced moto, off road, and desert, and I rode as fast as I could in each, and wanted my bike to turn just as well in the desert or woods as I did on a motocross track. Just because there are trees, cactus, and bushes around instead haybales and banners doesn't mean my bike should handle completely different. I know suspension setups differ significantly (depending on who you are), but what the heck? just my opinion.

    Fixed My Turning Issues On The 07!

    Well, I was on the fence about buying a set, but I guess I have to now. I just dont trust the front end of my 06 in flat turns. Yes, I raised the forks, and set my sag (with gear on), and have a fresh bridgestone 401a on the front:prof: . Applied 24mm's are next. Thanks for the review!

    Handlebars need to be raised for my 06

    1. Look on tag's website. 2. Look on protaper's website. 3. Compare specifications. 4. See if there is a match for the Windham bend on the Tag website. 5. Buy Tag handlebars if close match is found. 6. Install handlebars. 7. Start bike. 8. Ride bike.

    07 YZ 450F vs 07 KTM 300XC for OFFROAD

    I have a stock 06 YZ450, and just recently switched bikes with my friend riding an 07 WR450. We were riding tight stuff up in Kennedy Meadows. The bike was okay, but I was unimpressed. Slow...mushy. Yes, it had all the Yamaha power-robbing booby traps removed. He loves the bike though, and as soon as he removes the dastardly stock front tire, he'll like it even more. On the other hand, I just rode an 05 Husaberg 650, and that thing was, well, bitchin'. I want one.
