RM250racer, I put a Pvl on a 75` MX400 Yamaha (same engine as YZ400). Newmann`s prices are best by far and the Pvl is the best mod that bike ever had. And no more headaches looking for replacement parts.

Only plan on selling if my upcoming test results are bad. Otherwise, If I can still ride I have no reason to sell.

My health has gone bad and might never be well enough to ride again. Bike is all stock with extra SDG tall seat, FMF spark arrestor, and Black plastic so the Yellow has never been used. Still has original 756 rear with 60-70% tread and new S-12 Michelin ... more »

TM, So far the x-tra strength dose hasn`t caused any problems and I actually feel a little better each day with more energy than tired and lethargic as I was told I`d feel. That Proton Therapy sounds like something that might be possible in the future ... more »

Sounds like you`re headed to a full recovery. Listen to your Docs and keep the good attitude and Pala will be here before you know it. Thought I had Lymphoma 6 weeks ago but it turned out to be stage 4 kidney cancer. Started meds a week ago to try and ... more »

I met Petty at a Plymouth Dealership in 64` when I was 10 on a Sat. morning and the only people there was my dad and I. He`s a great guy and spent a lot of time with me but back then not many cared about anything NASCAR. Petty ran every race possible ... more »

Started new thread 77-79 Enduro reed valve swap with 77-78 YZ400 2/14/2014 11:38 PM

Anyone ever swap the 8 petal reed valves from the 77-79 Enduros for the 6 petal reeds in the 77-78 YZ400. I was told the factory bikes went this route when needing more tractable bottom end and quicker throttle response.

What`s amazing is how tame and well behaved this bunch on here has become. Never seen that before. Count me in on the Chloe` vote.

A buddy of mine raced that Enduro in Ocala about a month ago and said Pourcel didn`t even break a sweat. Smooth as silk. Made it look easy and seemed to really be having a blast.

Thanks, I`ll remember that Dave. Supposedly, the trans/engine worked like a champ but, it sounds like a manual is a must if that`s not the case. From what I`ve been told the bike`s very low hour and still looked new before being taken apart to be shipped. ... more »

My best advice is never ever rent to any family or friends. I`ve done both and wish I had listened to that advice the first time.

Obviously, Mr. Howerton never had the pleasure of riding a `75 MX400 Yamaha. Great bike on flat straight ground but even a Vintage friendly track would have me feeling worse than Joe Frazier after Manila. Hell, I was faster on my stripped down `72 250 ... more »
