I picked up my FX on Friday evening. I've got the front forks, swingarm and rear shock off to re-spring it and to re-grease the steering head and swingarm/shock linkages. Unfortunately, I will probably not get a chance to ride it until this coming weekend.
The story of how I ended up on this bike might help other riders who are also considering this bike. I rode an '04 YZ450 from '08 until late '13 that was set up nicely for woods riding. In late '13, I was having some right knee issues when someone asked me if I would sale it so, I sold it for what I paid for it back in '08. This past summer the knee was doing great so I found a '11 YZ450 close by for a good price and jumped back in. Two things to say about that bike - 1st) I could not believe the awesome power it made compared to the '04. It would pull effortless wheelies with my 6'4" 230lbs when changing to 4th gear with just a good twist of the throttle and 2) after a couple of rides I could already feel the knee getting sore. I rode it two weeks and sold it for what I paid for it and knowing that unfortunately, my knee now demanded a bike e-start. I ended up buying a '15 WR450 back in December. I thought that with some mods and a good FI map on that bike that I would be satisfied with the power. After adding a competition ECU, removing the throttle stop, removing the exhaust pea shooter, and riding it a few times, I knew that compared to the '11 YZ motor, I would never be satisfiued with the WR. My 14 yr old son is now the proud owner of the WR450 with my purchase of the FX! Having read all the reviews and comments on this site regarding the new FX, I am confident that it will be the perfect bike for me. I'll provide a short review after my first ride.
I know you are regreasing but did they come with sufficient grease? Just curious.I have heard people say they never grease anything and then other says that they have come greased sufficiently.
