I had good luck with them on CRF450s of various years.

Added reply in a thread yz250 stiff clutch pull 2/5/2014 12:25 PM

Check cable routing, if the bend is just slightly too sharp it can make the pull much harder. Just something like going in front of a radiator bolt vs. behind it or vice versa can make a big difference.

Added reply in a thread Practice track ethics 1/28/2014 7:45 AM

The "hold your line" is good advice, but people hear this as "pretend nobody else is on the track". I always have an idea who is ahead of me and behind me. For example, if there is a triple going into a corner in which people are having a hard time making ... more »

I was able to diagnose a bad stator using my $4 harbor freight multi-meter. I'd start there even though it looked ok.

Added reply in a thread 2013/2014 CRF 450 lacking power on top? 1/15/2014 8:10 AM

I have a '12 which is basically the same motor which I race completely stock. I tend to rev the bike, and although it doesn't pull nearly as hard as something like a 14 YZ450, it's not like I need to short-shift it like my straight-piped Harley when ... more »

Added reply in a thread modern 250f. Whats it cost to maintain? 1/14/2014 8:08 AM

All dirtbikes are money pits. People look back on 2-strokes and remember only the good stuff, like when you reminisce about your batshit-crazy ex you only remember the fun times you had.

Added reply in a thread Linkage 1/10/2014 12:16 PM

And if you do this regularly the bearing last a long time. Interval depends on riding conditions and washing techniques, I've found 20-25 hours intervals on linkage works for me, swingarm every other time. It's the cheapest maintenance, probably under ... more »

You're aware that $500 head doesn't include any valvetrain parts, right?

They're really all rusty and in need of replacement on a 2012? I like OEM best. If I only need to replace individual bearings I go OEM, but if I'm replacing all I've had good luck with All Balls.

Added reply in a thread Hoping someone can chime in on this 1/9/2014 12:24 PM

Yeah, since original OEM spec is the smallest (piston size A for Yamahas), optional sizes B, C, then D get slightly larger. So someone could get it made back to OEM spec, then install an OEM Yamaha piston and have issues if they don't use the A. And ... more »

Added reply in a thread Where to get 6' workbench,reasonable $ 12/29/2013 11:23 AM

Yeah, plywood, 2x4s, and drywall screws and build your own. I went a little nuts and built about 40' of workbench that goes along the walls along with an island between the two bikes.

Added reply in a thread Oil all of my filters...or just as I need them? 12/16/2013 7:51 AM

In the summer I do a week's worth at a time. Usually 3, one goes in the bike, other 2 go in a zip-lock bag or bags. I never oil them up for long term storage, though. Whatever you do, don't store them where they are in direct sunlight, I had a filter ... more »
