Basically had to ignore my ego and listen to my conscience on this one.

(The 2016 KX450F in the background is for sale and a new avatar is forthcoming).

Ironically (or perhaps not) my last 2-stroke was a 2006 YZ250 that I bought new. This one's an 07'. Thing was flooding bad. Previous owner said the brass overflow tube in the float bowl broke and he fabricated a replacement. I discovered that the replacement was a uniform cylinder and it was bottomed out, effectively sealing off the overflow exit (imagine putting a straw down on the palm of your hand). The tube has since been modified & the overflow now passes fluid. Ready to rip!

Already has a Vforce3 and a 9oz flywheel weight. I've got an Acerbis plastic skid plate I need to install. Also got a zip-ty racing big tank on order. The reality is that I'm doing more off road these days. Might need stiffer springs and someday maybe a 295 kit. Came with Mich starcross 5s...

Nice man! I’ve got a set of vforce reeds for my 05, but need new peddles before putting it on the bike. I know what you mean about doing more off-road. It’s more laid back and all around more worth the money. I picked up an 03 that I’m partially parting out and will eventually turn it into an off-road bike. If you ever make it down south let me know so we can go riding.

That is a clean A$$ 2007. I totally suck at riding two strokes but I've found recently that I'm probably no better on my 350. What did you pay for that gem?

Great stuff my man! My 06' has the IMS tank and the Vforce. Awesome offroad machines. Congrats

A little more linear torque. That with a pipe was more than enough. Worked waaaay better on the YZ250 than it did the KX500

It came with a Pro Circuit Platinum and the R304 silencer
