Numbers 19 and 20. Looking at the clutch cover, look down and to the left. Towards the swingarm pivot bolt. If I remember correctly, you might have to remove or push down on the rear brake to access it.

Pretty sure it's the same as the 98. It's kind of tucked away in a stupid spot. I'll find it in a sec.

Who the hell was brave enough to do that? Must be a vet.

Stock motors for me and ALWAYS rebuild with OEM parts.

What octane of Cam2? I see it's available in different octanes. C12 is one of the best, if not the best, option for 2 strokes. It's all I run in my 2 strokes. VP110 is another good option for a little less money and both with take away any detonation. ... more »

I don’t plan on it. I just think it’s absolutely crazy for a 50 to cost that much money. The fact that a regular 50SX is almost the same price as a YZ85 is crazy.

Added reply in a thread 450 back to 2 stroke 8/3/2020 9:42 PM

4 strokes are easier to ride. No need to actually carry momentum or make sure you’re constantly in the right gear. Literally twist the throttle a little more and you’re fine. With that said, they do wear me out way faster. In order to go near the same ... more »

Switch that around. Ideal situation is a 250 smoker as the main bike and a 450 for a second bike.

I for sure can't think of a brand you haven't worn, even back ten years ago!

Just saw your other thread you started yesterday. Like someone else said, replace your main seals because it’s cheap insurance. Next work on jetting. The 1998 carb sucked! I got so frustrated with mine that I replaced it with a carb from a 99.

This! OP, if you or your son are in the position to keep the 450 and pick up a 2 stroke as well, that really is the way to go. Best of both worlds.

Added reply in a thread 450 back to 2 stroke 8/2/2020 9:28 AM

This is going to have many differing opinions. My take: I grew up riding two strokes. Wasn’t until I was 15 that I got onto a 4 stroke. I still ride my dads 250 2 stroke here and there and always had a blast. At points where I didn’t have a bike, back ... more »
