Just got a quote for an '03 YZF450 from a breakers in the UK...

£550 :cry:

The bloke recons a new one is £1,200 :cry:

Anyone confirm or deny the new price? I really can't believe it.

Can anyone recommend a US breaker that will ship to the UK?

I've had a few problems. Cough & die when hot and won't restart is the main one, as experienced by quite a few others. There is no hot start on the one fitted.

I know the Factory Team swapped over at the start of the year and I've bumped into a few riders at MX meetings and they've all changed theirs and instantly found better results. Husky must have taken note as they are OEM for '05.

Ahhhhh, he wants a YZ carb for his Husky. Yeah, I saw that they did that as well. I have notheard good things about the Edelbrock carb, they are hard to jet (?). 250 for the YZ carb is a steal. Buy it now. New that are aobut 950USD

If you can get an FCR off a YZ for $250 you better grab it quick.

I paid $275 for one on my DRZ. They are expensive. :cry:
