Is the galling caused by a lack of lubrication? If so, would it be possible to do the same type of modifications that are popular among YFZ450 atv owners? Google yfz450 oil mod and there's plenty of information available.

The bearing you ordered is the correct part number. It's the same part since 2001. Should be a 6003 bearing. Maybe the first bearing you ordered was packaged incorrectly, or double check the part number and make sure one of the middle numbers isn't incorrect. ... more »

You're correct. 84 and 85 had the ATAC. 86 and later did not. I don't remember them having the ATAC label either. Had several 86 and 87s. I don't remember seeing ATAC on any of the cylinders.

Check the piston. Common for them to crack and do what yours is doing.

It's almost like clock work. Every year about this time I see several 4 strokes blow up here in GA. I think it has more to do with the temp change than the gas. My theory is the cold air is making these bikes run lean. A lean bike runs hotter. Titanium ... more »

Added reply in a thread anyone know of stolen bike registries? 11/6/2013 2:50 PM

NICB is only going to show if an insurance claim was paid out on it. If it was stolen and the owner didn't have insurance on it it won't show up on NICB. Best bet is to check with local police dept.
