Added reply in a thread tricks to fix the flame-out on 2009-2012 CRF450s 7/23/2014 4:09 PM
Time to put manual decomp on these bikes like the original YZ400F's ! Just kidding. That sucked.

I use the Bel-Ray and do it pretty much like Cam except I keep a pail of Mineral Spirits for cleaning (the distilled, odorless kind, not the white, creamy "bio-friendly kind).

Man 4 practices on a filter? They must keep tracks watered pretty well there. My filter is caked after 1 practice here. Hell, sometimes if I blast a powdery berm I can feel it richer immediately after..! j/k sorta You're right, the Bel-Ray oil rocks. ... more »

Good info. Yep, the Yamaha is definitely more of a top-end, hold it on forever style of power where the Kawi is a blast and rip motor. That was what I liked about the Yamaha. It had enough bottom and mid to get the job done and not wear you out but then ... more »

I have never owned any of the KTM 50's, but every one I know who has says get 2 right away. You will need them if you want to keep the kid riding on one while you work on the other.

Still doing the same. No probs yet. No reason to change. Run the gear saver in my 2-stroke tranny's also. Been using it since 1985 !

The Yamaha tuning tool is really handy and easy to use and relatively reasonably priced. An exhaust and loading a new map with the tool turns the YZ450F into a very fast bike.

A lot of hope, and motivation, and probably morphine at this point, too.

You gotta admire the 2-stroke taliban. They will never admit or give in, even when faced with overwhelming facts and evidence..lol "How could I be any faster on a big fat heavy turd????"... that's not what Bubba was saying in 2005.

I have Twin Air filters in my YZ125 and YZ250. They are slightly smaller and give lots of room in the airbox. I have no probs at all. It's actually very roomy. If you have trouble with the YZ's you would absolutely hate the CRF's! They are really tight. ... more »

As Camp said, sealed chain and steel sprockets is ultimate durability if you don't mind a little extra weight on your 450. I have the DID 520NZ (black chain) on my 2012 CRF450. Been on there for 22 hrs with minimal stretching. And it's all pretty much ... more »

Added reply in a thread problem with pw50 7/22/2014 12:44 AM
I think what you described is normal. My son's PW50 ran exactly like that since brand new. They just don't pull perfectly clean on the extreme top. It's like it's fine under a load but once it gets rolling with little resistance it starts breaking up. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Basic clutch cable question 7/18/2014 9:09 AM
Compare the new cable to the old one. Should be pretty obvious if it's the same or not. Look up part numbers in the OEM section on Motosport, RockyMountain, BTO, and other sites.
Added reply in a thread Basic clutch cable question 7/18/2014 7:58 AM
Clutch plates might be shot. As the plates wear thinner you lose play. Eventually you get to the point that even with all the adjusters backed off all the way you can't get play at the lever.
