Just got a '14 YZ450f. I've got an extra set of wheels for my '12 and I'd like to use them on the new bike. Rear wheel interchanges. However, the front axle on the '14 is larger. Any way to modify the front wheel to work. Larger wheel bearings?

Pretty sure Ricky Ryan's son is racing the minis. Saw him recently at the Dodge National in Nor Cal, and he was very impressive.

Saw him ride at Mammoth this year. Pretty easy to tell he's somethin' special. Intense every moment on the track. Impressive.

Couldn't help but reply to this post. Most will think I'm crazy for even suggesting a YZ250 two smoker. And if you would have asked me five months ago I'd have said that a 250 two stroke would be the worst bike for a relatively small teenager. But check ... more »

Thanks for the info. I've got a GYTR Head on my '13 YZ450 and really like it. If I get a '14 I'd like to put it on there. Rode a '14 this week, but it was on a sand track and the owner had a smooth program in it as well as the stock pipe and gearing....so ... more »

Anybody know if a '13 GYTR head will work on a new '14 YZ450f? I looked on the Yamaha site and they have two different part numbers, so I doubt it would work....but just askin'. Thanks.

Any news on Doug's recovery? Hope things are going well.

Good points about keeping it positive. Just wanted to add that although I don't know Doug personally, in the last two years at Mammoth he has taken the time to re-program three Yamahas for me and two buddies, without any charge, and with a big smile ... more »

I was standing about thirty feet (next to a girl I believe was his daughter) from Dr. D's crash at Mammoth...it was brutal. Amazed that he got off with "only" a bunch of broken ribs. The crash was in the second 40A moto. First moto Doug got the holeshot...as ... more »

Pretty sure he'll be racing Hangtown National. There was a race at the Prairie City/Hangtown track on April 28th...top three were Bogle, Epstein, and Wey.

Just watched the interview with Millsaps on Transworld, and he talks about his serious knee issues and upcoming surgery. Sounds like a logical choice to get it repaired ASAP. The audio wasn't too good, but he did discuss the possibility of a knee replacement ... more »

Was out at the Dodge National in NorCal today watching a little of the practice. In the Pro/Exp practice a KX450 (not sure if '12 or '13) blew a head gasket after about four laps. No bueno.

Wanted to post a quick update on the perfromance mods I did on the '12 YZF450. Got a used low hour Akropovic pipe from a friend a couple of months ago, and it was a major improvement. About a month ago got a low hour GYTR head w/cams from another buddy, ... more »

Thanks, that's a good idea. Dubach is a great guy. He remapped my 450 at Mammoth this year and was super friendly.

Just picked up a GYTR Head w/cams. Not gonna use a hi-compression piston or race gas. Any recommendations for mapping. I have the Yamaha Tuner. Thanks.
