Started new thread Brembo caliper on yz (from kick ass 2 stroke thread) 7/15/2018 3:48 PM

Saw this bike on in the thread and it looks like they have a brembo caliper on the front. I just bought a brembo master cylinder, line, and caliper off eBay for cheap with the plan of using the master and line. Anyone know how it's done? Thinking off

Added reply in a thread Which look do you prefer on motocross bikes? 7/14/2018 7:51 PM

prefer the clean look of the top, also notice it is more "trick" than the bottom one with updated front end Or you could just skip the graphics they just wear off anyways.

Skda does some of the best looking graphics, but most of them involve black frame to complete the look and it's not for me. Killer bike, I have the dep on my bike and it rocks!

How about pipe hangers? I've looked at getting a sheet of carbon and cutting and drilling out one like the factory bikes had.

I know a guy with a 2010 crf250 with the original spark plug in it. And I know many people who say the Yamaha are indestructable even with many hours.

Added reply in a thread YZ 125 Fork Guard Conversion 6/9/2018 3:04 PM

For your 2017 guards you will need 2008+ fork lugs. That is when they changed to that bolt pattern. I had a 2005 and even it was a different pattern from the 03 you are showing. The 05-08 is bolt on side one bolt 90 degrees from that one on the front, ... more »

Ddddddam!! Not a fan of black frame but that bike near about everything a yz can have. Swing arm swap would complete it!

Added reply in a thread Why doesn’t yamaha update the YZ125/250 6/6/2018 3:48 PM

Yeah I'm gathering the parts to do the swap on mine now. When the reverse engine came in they moved the shock making the swingarm not work on the yz. There are 2 options to fix this from yamahas point of view. Move the shock back over on the 4 stroke ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why doesn’t yamaha update the YZ125/250 6/6/2018 9:40 AM

Why would they change? Simple, to reduce number of parts in inventory and reduce production cost. If parts from the four strokes will fit (example triple clamps and front fender) why spend the money to make the parts specific to the 2 stroke? The entire ... more »

How about this? Make a vent tube with a flange about 1" dia. And maybe .125" thick. Then drill the flange. Somehow clean the inside of tank (hasn't had gas in it for a while) Then put sealant on the top of the flange. Insert vent tube through filler

How do you mean reinforced? like where it cant be hit and knocked out? Could make it a T shape and put it in from the inside to help it be stable?

Added reply in a thread Gas tank modification 6/4/2018 5:42 PM

That may be what I do if I can't find a way to put it in the tank. Kinda like this blonix cap. I would be able to machine the cap to bolt on the stock yz breather valve. (Whatever you call that thing on the bottom of the gas cap)
