I'm not familiar with getting a title from a certificate of origin. Although, I've heard of that fo race bikes or shop "demo" bikes. I would think it's possible. Maybe you can Google it or call DMV.

Thanks Jim. My bike had about 50 hours on it when I bought it. I have put probably 30 since I've had it. I need an hour meter. I was told the GYTR tuner can tell you the hours at any time if you plug it in. I think the bottom end should last forever ... more »

I have the 2010 yz450 and I love it! The shrouds are a little wide and the intake is loud, but you get used to it by the end of your first day riding. I paid $4200 for mine in 2012 and it has everything on it. I feel I got an exceptional deal for sure.

Hey Mart. I don't think the radiator should have a twist in it. My kx125 radiators weren't perfect (a little twisted also) but I was able to pull them to the shrouds and get them bolted up. It's barely noticable, if any.

Grade 5, "6AI-4V" is what we use to manufacture orthopedic hip replacements and some knee replacement components at my work. Wikipedia says it's the most common titanium used for manufacturing also. I don't know Steve Denton. But chances are he agrees. ... more »

Thank you. I live in Northern California so the weather isn't too crazy. My garage is insulated enough where I think it will be good enough for storing the bike. I might even ride the bike one day, who knows.

It's a little risky but you can blast the engine complete. You will need to mask off the intake and exhaust ports really well. I suggest getting a plug for the exhaust port and leaving the reeds and intake boot on the engine. You can use a ping pong ... more »

Funny, I paid $350 on eBay for a used set of Matt Walker's plastics. And you got the whole bike for a few hundred more. Great deal for

Hi Mart. Yes, they are Pro Circuit- just pulled from production before they got engraved. (Not blemished, just extras) I believe the wider top mounts are for Suzuki or vise versa. I'll make sure on that. Email me ar email@example.com with your address ... more »

You should bead blast the cast aluminum stuff. It will make it bling like new. Nice job so far!

I agree with mb. I bought the pink line off ebay. I used a lighter or heat gun to soften the ends and they slip all the way on the carb, no problem.

In the past, I've had issues with the rear 404 ripping off side knobs. And currently I have the mx31 front and pretty much every side knob is breaking off. The tire has about 6 rides and looks like new besides the knobs coming off. I'm trying the mx32 ... more »
