My 2014 Yz450 has 105 hours on original top end and its time for a refresh. Thinking of throwing in a higher compression piston for 13.5:1, versus the stock 12.5:1.......... will race gas be mandatory?

Go stiffer like the other guys said, but for sure 14 clicks on rebound is not enough on that bike and too fast. Go in a couple clicks and see how that feels.

Indeed to make the most of a higher compression piston it should be mated to a camshaft(s) with duration, lift, overlap, and the valve events that will make the most of that added compression.

Its time for a new chest protector. I currently wear an older MSR hard plastic protector that is basically a copy of the old school HRP Flack Jack. The one I have is clapped out and no longer available. I'm 6'5" 225lbs and most protectors are super small ... more »

I hear the local dealership will let you borrow a new bike for about $9 grand, and they will even let you have it for as long as you like.

Hey Newman! I didn't know you have a body shop. Where are you located? Yeah, I still have the Pantera..... Gonna hold on as the value is going up. I'll post a few pics of some projects later.

Hey Meister, I will consider that possibility. PM me please. Thanks. To others that asked, if you are serious PM me as well. It wasn't my intention to solicit business so I don't want to break any rules and piss off the mods.

Thanks man! Yeah the pictures don't do it justice at all. The gold is a 4 stage candy, and the red a 3 stage candy.That combined with the highly reflective multi color flake and it really pops in person! I worked on it off and on over 3 1/2 weeks and ... more »

OMG my feathers aren't "ruffled" but I think it's funny how all you guys get your panties in a wad. I like Stank, he's a very good rider, and it's cool to hear a 125 rip but it's sad to say that he just can't be competitive enough on that 125. Yes he ... more »

I was at GH today, and I gotta say after seeing it in person i agree with Matthes' assessment of Stank on the 125. And it's a rare day I agree with much that SM says! Anyway, I couldn't help but wonder why even bother riding on that 125. He was hopelessly ... more »
