Hi guys,

My son's YZ85 had a little problem this weekend. A screw backed out from the billet clutch basket, and went through the crank gear and the primary gear on the basket. Not really sure why, it had red loctite on it. The only part that needs replacing is the primary driven gear, so I guess I got off lucky. The crank was knocked out of true, and the main tranny shaft bent a bit, but I was able to straighten it and true the crank. (being a machinist pays off sometimes). I replaced all the bearings and several gears and shafts a couple months ago when he blew up his tranny, so I'm not real happy about the situation.

Anyhow, I was wondering who has the best prices on OEM yamaha parts. I have used a few of the online places in the past, but they all list the same price on their microfiche parts list. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Does he race at all? If he has a card of any kind usually North County Yamaha will give a discount over their already decent pricing. Have you checked the TT store?

I just rebiult my 426 and got most of my parts from generationmx.com. It cost nine dollars to subscribe to there sight, but the savings were well worth it. I just used one of the online parts sheets to get the part number them search it on there search form. If you give me a couple of part numbers, i can give you some specific prices to see if you want to join.

You don't have to be a member to research part numbers. I was playing w/ the site and was able to research price's without joining, But hands down, they were the best prices I found

Thanks guys for the replies. I am looking into generationmx.com, but found the part in stock at North County Yamaha. With a little dickering, he matched Parker Yamaha's price (they didnt have it in stock though) of only $124. It lists for $187 at most of the online microfiche sites.

Maybe this basket will outlast the original one. If not, I'll get the gear off it and go back to my PE billet basket, but I'll have to come up with something better for the little rubber cushions in it.

To ensure a permanent hold you need to put Loctite into the hole and also onto the screw, and you need to clean the threads thoroughly with a contact cleaner, acetone, or other cleaning/degreasing solution. To make the bond even stronger you should use a Loctite primer. It is important that you use fresh Loctite since in has a shelf life. Hinson also recommends pinging the screws to ensure they wont come lose. :thumbsup:

I probably just didn't use enough. I normally do put it on the bolt and in the nut, but Iv'e never used the primer. Everything is always degreased first, but I may have gotten a little careless, I don't know. I do know that every time I open the clutch up to change the crappy rubber cushions, it is a battle getting them off, you have to use a lot of heat or the screws will break off.

I think the problem might have been in the nuts themselves. They are machined to a specific length, and the screw bottoms out in the nut before it secures the gear to the basket. This is by design, so the rubber cushions have a chance to do their job. They vary in length though a few thousandths, and some screws und up holding more load than others. If I remember correctly, I had one that was a tad too short, and didn't bottom out properly with the screw.

i agree with fastest1, North County Yamaha has the best deals, there prices are lower than the prices on their parts fisch. They will even match or beat any other price that you tell them, call and deal with Kenny, he is real helpful.

Alright, I feel like bumping this thread with some updated research. Hopefully someone can use this info and I'm using the YZ450F (2006) as an example:

OEM Piston 2006
www.crotchrocket.com $124.13
www.cheapcycleparts.com $96.08
www.bikebandit.com $131.3
TT OEM $119.70
www.generationmx.com $115.47 +membership to their site
www.yamahapart.com $112.59


OEM Cylinder 2006
www.crotchrocket.com $261.39
www.cheapcycleparts.com $209.15
www.bikebandit.com $270.51
TT OEM $256.68
www.generationmx.com $243.15 +membership
www.yamahapart.com $237.07


This is just a quick example of some OEM prices and obviously shipping can make a difference on some purchases.

Thanks for the comparison, I've been using TT mainly because the parts are almost always in stock and come out of IL and I get them in 2 days. Very interesting though, I've never heard of Cheap Cycle Parts, thanks again. Mike

Sorry Gray, the Price match guarantee does not apply to OEM orders:

Quantity Limits:
Our low price guarantee is valid for up to three (3) price matches in any given 30-day period.
Our low price guarantee is limited to a maximum of $100.00 per price match request.
Our low price guarantee is limited to a minimum of $1.00 per price match request.
Our low price guarantee is limited to up to three (3) of the same product, shipped to the same address.
Exclusions: We price match almost everything. We don't price match OEM Parts or bikes, tires, clearance items, labor items, items sold at wholesale/membership clubs or products sold on Internet auction sites. We also don't price match taxes or typographical errors.


The idea of combining OEM and aftermarket orders is long overdue. I think for little purchases, it will come down to shipping costs. For large engine rebuilds and otherwise spendy purchases, TT OEM may not make the most sense.

I've ordered from them in the past and, although not free, their shipping seemed to be on par with what other OEM sites are charging.

My last order from them took a shorter amount of time then most of my TT orders..... I'm not bashing TT, Just defending CCP a little with my experience.

So is TT still getting OEM stuff from Generation MX?..... (I hope not, I had horrible luck dealing with them).
