It works! And it's cheap enough to replace now and then. Just make sure that the hose clamps don't rub against anything.

I have used automotive radiator or heater hose on some vintage bikes, with very good results. Take a measurement or take the parts to a NAPA store and match up the size. Pick up a couple hose clamps and you're set.

Do you know the exact length, eye-to-eye, of the shock?

I wonder how Factory Yamaha addresses this issue? Does anyone have a clear pic of this part of Barcia's, or Ferrandis' bike?

Added reply in a thread Anyone have pics of 05-07 RMZ450's they have built? Here is mine. 10/7/2020 9:16 PM

I have a White Brothers Carbon exhaust for the '06 RMZ450. It's in great shape with very low time. Kept it when I sold the bike in '07. PM me if interested. -Jay-

Would re-welding the bracket(s) to the swing arm, when new, to ensure good weld penetration, be a good idea? Would welding on the swing arm cause any weakening of the surrounding metal?

Iowa District 22. 1978 thru 1983+. Johnny Spaw. Just unreal speed. I have been watching/racing motocross for over 40 years and I don't think I have ever seen anyone with the corner speed he had! Wonder what he's up to these days?

Think of the ECU to be more like a performance enhancing part. Kind of like a pipe, or even just a slip-on (muffler).Lots of people get a pipe to enhance or move the power to the spot "they" want it to be to personalize it for them. I had my ECU reflashed ... more »

Thru 2007 CR250 will bolt right up, and are so much better that it's crazy. You will need a caliper bracket to fit the newer style fork lug spacing tho -- good time to upgrade to a 270mm oversize rotor and mount kit. front wheel and axle are same

He's riding for Suzuki's Factory-level team, on a bike that, arguably, has the most set-up history on the track. The team HAS to be willing to test and try to do anything he wants to try. Honest question: Is Joey a bad test rider, who can't set up a ... more »

I think your problem is identified in your second sentence. You don't "bang" on the axle as hard as you can , it slides in with your fingertip when it's lined up and lubed properly. ("100s of times", of rough handling, has got you to where you are now) ... more »

A short length (8") of 1/2" all-thread. Then stack the appropriate sockets/washers/nuts. line it all up with some heat to the swing arm, and crank away.

You can't ride like Barcia does, and expect to win championships. He is certainly fast enough (on his good days) , but his poor decision-making leads to way too many crashes. When you go for close, aggressive passes, it increases the likelyhood that ... more »
