Does anyone have a fix for the YZ400F's rod problems? Ty Davis had his share of problems trying to race them......lost mine while running through lots of sand while using Silkolene synthetic oil. The large end seized up, showed signs of heat and lubrication failure. Anyone know of aftermarket rods?

I would give Zip-Ty Racing a call and see what they use....

Thanks for responding, but Falicon doesn't make a 400 rod or crank assembly and Ty says buy a 450 and Carillo dropped their plans to make one....anybody else?

pro-x makes rods still im pretty sure,but its just a oem rod.

check the frame screen and pump pick up for blockage.
