Earlier in the moto when he was battling with Wilson it looked like the bike was starting to smoke and he was messing with the clutch or something.

I remember them as having power that was rather smooth and not real snappy and pretty comfortable ergo's. The bad parts, the brakes really sucked.. mushy and weak. The suspension was wallowy (you seem to have addressed that with springs), and it didn't ... more »

Like I said, stock jetting is very good on these. Put all stock jetting back in. If it is still acting up you have some other problem.

Pro Taper Evo's are better. Contours can and will bend easier than the Evo's.

Yep, definitely sounds crazy lean. However, unlike these guys I suspect an air leak is more likely than just a small pilot to cause such a major bog. Stock jetting is very good on these and anywhere close to stock will not run that shitty. Also, the ... more »

Team FGR is thinking of TFS right now. We go way back to the old days in the 90's. Ran into TFS at many races over the years and he always treated people from the boards as his true friends. Get well Buddy.

I have the Stage-II in my 2012 CRF450. It is a nice mod. It adds top end pull and overrev that the CRF needs badly. Allows me to keep the bike in 3rd on straights where it fell flat before and demanded to be shifted to 4th. I also have the JE 13.5 piston. ... more »

Different world. He's got to get used to it. The track looked really hard packed, not ripped. High speed with line choice being very important, almost like road racing on dirt. Probably didn't suit his aggressive style too well. The fast GP guys were ... more »

I know there's a guy from NJ on Thumpertalk that bought a brand new 2013 YZ250 for around $4000 because it was totalled by the insurance company for water damage after Sandy. In reality the bike probably had very little "damage" whatsoever and the guy ... more »

Stock Honda rims are junk and are not worth anodizing or the trouble of re-lacing. If you are going to go through the trouble of unlacing the stock rims put good rims on it right away.

Castor oil breaks down into stearic acid. Stearic acid is corrosive to brass. I bought a YZ250 that sat for 3 or 4 years with 927 in the tank and carb. I ended up having to buy a new carb for it and it took forever to get the stearic acid scale cleaned ... more »

CRF450 is in a different league compared to the YZF450. It is much lighter and it feels even lighter yet. It doesn't ride like an "open bike" too much. Very easy to handle and very easy to control. Kinda feels like an overpowered 250F. Like you said, ... more »

Well, in that case, you're going to be pulling the stator to swap it anyway so just put a new crank seal in while you have the stator removed. It's so cheap it's not even worth trying to figure out if it's bad or not. Just replace it.
