The RM-Z250 valving simulates the mod where you remove shins, and is a bolt in solution. Results worked for me

Yes, it works - takes the harshness out of the forks (they are known for this). Its a much plusher ride, but I am not a guy who takes big hits and hucks monster booters. Vet B rider with moments of good speed

Simplest fix, buy the fork valving from the '14 250 and live happily ever after (comes with valve stack and cap). Bolts in and costs less than a re-valve Shock is good, work on adjusting and you will be happy

Almost too funny, my kids call my ankle area Frankenfoot (stitches and lots of titanium inside) Basically can no longer run, have a funny gate to my walk (i notice it more than others), I am way good at running in a circle...

Lifer in MX and riding in general, but fell out of love with MX once I shattered my tibia and haven't ridden the same speed since. This frustrates me to the point of not wanting to line up anymore simply because I struggle to hang even though I know ... more »

All plastic is stock except the front fender and front number plate are from 2008 and newer RMZ450. The stock side plates were cut to the shape you see in the pictures

Clear case of detonation, this is pretty common with low octane fuel, or possible lean condition (jetting, air leak) This is your best friend for diagnosing these kind of issues: https://www.eric-gorr.com/files/pdfs/2_stroke_top_end_and_performance.pdf

You just need RMZ450 preprinted backgrounds and cut the plate to match that shape. It is the best way to get the right shape

Not really a super technical post, but maybe helpful to RM-Z450 owners If you are looking for a low cost skid plate that bolts onto the frame without clamps, try the RM-X450Z skid plate. I bought mine from Babbitt's part number 42511-02J00. This is a
