Gytr parts - maybe the airbox clips
Bling - non , I don't see that B/S when riding. Its just for posers.
Oil - what Mr Yamaha recommends or Valvoline

Congratulations on your new bike.

I've been very happy with ASV "unbreakable" levers.

GYTR sells a Lightspeed carbon fiber skid plate that I've also been glad I purchased.

Oil.... I use Fuchs Silkolene, but at the checkout it feels like I'm getting Fuched! :goofy:

If you want the motor to last for over 300 hrs like one of mine has, pay the money and put Redline oil in it. By far one if the best oils out there.

I've run 300 plus hours on 3 different YZ450's without ever using a drop of ester based oil.  Mobil1 Racing 4T or Amsoil MCF only (both full polyalpha olefin synthetics), changed in under 8 hours, Scotts filter serviced with every oil change.

 

There are any number of good oils available, and it frankly doesn't make too much difference which one you use as long as it's the right viscosity (check your manual for info), is compliant with JASO MA/MA2, and is blended to resist viscosity loss when used as a transmission lubricant.

With the original piston, rings and clutch? Seems to me you stated you got that life on the bottom end but not anything else?

My '03 was used when I got it, and because of how disagreeable the original clutch was in that model, the PO had installed a full Hinson.  I ran that bike over 300 hours myself without ever opening it up beyond the timing chain. Never even a valve adjustment.

 

The '06 my son had got a set of rings while I was chasing a coolant leak that turned out to have resulted from the impeller shaft, but otherwise never had anything replaced, piston included.

 

My current '06 was lightly used when I bought it, and has had two timing chains.  I did do a clutch plate set last year to improve the release performance of the Rekluse I installed, but the problem with that was that the plates weren't flat, not that they were worn.  Replacing the piston now while I'm working on a gear ratio change. 

 

So to your question, yes, pretty much the whole damn thing.

Dear Gray racer, i am a little confused by your statement , I would have imagined that JASO MA specifications would cover the requirements of an oil blend resisting viscosity loss when used as as a tranny lubricant.Please kindly enlighten me as I am jumping from from Honda to Yamaha for the first time in over a decade and my bike now shares oil in both motor compartment and tranny and want my bike (yzf 450 2014) to last for the next 24 months before the normal renewal With a fresh scoot...... FWIW , I am changing my Motul 5100 every second ride , riding Mx only, and mostly sand track , which is approx a 4.5 - 5 hrs interval

in addition, I will change piston and rings this coming winter ( I have now 30 hrs on the bike) and will probably finish this season at around 45 hrs. It may seem over done but rather be safe than sorry and Canadian winter are pretty boring so reliability in the "up-moto-months" is mission critical.....so my question is how do you gauge your timing chains for a replacement? Just safety precaution or hard measurements/evidence ? If measurements or evidence , I would like to know the what and how so I understand better my Yami-- only changed my timing chain once on a YZF 400 98 and whenever I blew my crank on my crf's 450......

Thanks in advance,

dr Scrub
