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.
Reply to Higher compression Piston in YZ450 8/8/2016 9:28 PM
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.
New thread Suggestions for good chest protectors for tall guys?? 8/2/2016 5:51 PM
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 »

i got a good deal on this new Arai, but the graphic scheme was boring and ugly. Always thought having a unique painted helmet would be cool. I own a body and restoration shop where we work on cars as well as painting on motorcycles, but I never do helmets!
