Reply to How were the Turnouts at your local tracks this year ? 9/9/2019 4:55 AM

Doing great up here in New England from what I’ve seen. Practice tracks have been packed every time I go and NESC pulls 20 to 30 450 Pro/A every weekend.

The pressure plate had a very slight ridge on it. I’m going to order one but it was pushed back a few days so I don’t think I’ll get it in time. Thanks.

I bought a new 18 250f last year. My first big purchase on my own. 0 down for 2 years, was $350 a month. Ouch. Sold it 1 year later and got more than what I owed which was nice. I bought a low hour 450f for $3000 after that and never looked back. They ... more »

I don’t day trade but know someone who does. Once you get good there is some serious money to be made. Do your research and get a good program for monitoring stocks, a lot of people use Think or Swim. Start small. I’m still very new so I won’t give any ... more »

Check your kill switch. Edit: Nevermind, I re-read everything and that wouldn’t be it.

Got to race that track for an area qualifier. Really cool layout but man that track was littered with rocks! Nothing like any track I’ve ridden in New England.

Reply to Any common problems on the 2017 YZF 250 ? 4/15/2019 6:06 PM

I can’t say about the 17’, but my 16’ and 18’ were bulletproof. Great bikes.

Reply to Best Deal you ever got. 3/23/2019 6:05 AM

Picked up this 2014 YZ450F last year for $3000. Had 10 hours from a vet rider, bike was in mint shape. Came with full Akrapovic exhaust and JGR lower pull rod. Sold those to pay for a FC Suspension respring/revalve.

I’m extremely thankful for the hard work my parents did to get my brother and I racing every weekend for almost 10 years. When they bought a new bike for me, they would put it in my room. Even a 250f. Talk about a surprise after school!

I have always done what the manual says for break in. No problems yet, every bike has made it 50+ hours.

My 16 and 18 also did the same thing. Both made it 50+ hours no problem.

Reply to Detuning a 450 via mapping 12/11/2018 10:17 AM

I could be wrong, but from my understanding you can’t detune them that much. It’s still gonna feel like a 450. Maybe give Tokyo Mods a call, they might have already done this with another customer.
