Started new thread 1pc side # plates for 10-13 YZ450 4/17/2014 11:49 AM

is anyone making a single piece side # plate for the last gen yz450? I noticed the stupid plastic rivets are separating on mine again. Looks like the all black Acerbis panels are possibly all molded out of 1 part?

those are pretty. I don't think I could bring myself to ride it. it would look good in my race shop next to the clapped out yamahas though.

I have run the 18 at the motocross track a few times. it makes the rear have a little "dead" feeling if you don't change the clickers at all. if I pumped it up it would probably be less noticeable but I run it at 6-7psi with a tubliss kit just like I ... more »

I hope he rides like that all year. I do worse charging through the lappers at a local hare scramble trying to get a little plastic trophy than Reed did to Stewart going for the championship in 09. he would have seen It coming for 30ft and it was just ... more »

I have been running and 18" warp-9 on my hare scramble bike for 2 seasons now. I have a nutec tubliss kit and keep up on the spokes and lube the bearings from time to time. it has been bullet proof so far. I would have a hard time getting more money ... more »

x2 on keeping the tubliss. mine has been flawless through 2 seasons of 3 hour hare scrambles @8psi. easy tire changes and no dents even on my cheap warp 9 wheel. i found a little trick to the wheels also after destroying one with fresh lubed good condition ... more »

these are way cool. I build most the Tubular steel parts for them. they are built like a tank and made to be a little tipsy. I am going to try to get out to the race in chicago.

kind of like how a 125 or 250f feels like its on its last leg after a strait month of hard riding?

i will look into one when they are the same price as a comparable gas bike and i see someone throwing the thing flat on LaRocco's leap like RC used to do.

Added reply in a thread Magic Springs and Seatbouncing are back! 11/12/2012 10:15 AM

I think seat bouncing has a lot more to do with the mass of the rider and bike following a path than suspension. Under normal conditions going up the face of a jump suspension and your legs are compressing due to the direction change of the mass from ... more »

yes the 110 seems to hook up just fine. now that it has been converted to my hare scramble bike it hooks up really good with the 110-90-18 @ 8-10psi and tubelis kit. unfortunaly i am having major handling issues after using up my stock pile of 756 fronts. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Yamaha guys: YZ450f frame question 10/17/2012 9:18 AM

i think mine hadles fine. keep sag set properly is the main thing. find a front tire you like and run a 110 rear instead of a 120. i also raised my forks in the clamps a little on mine. I think they handle on par with every other bike from that vintage ... more »
