I stepped in to the quad forum to see his post and found this one instead.

I only got about 4 or 5 posts into it before I had to back out. The first 2 or 3 posts are the best. I took a while before someone said he needed to replace the clutch. duh!

ur an idiot that apparently has "god" syndrome. you cant judge a book by it's cover. Just because someone has an eccentric name does not tell you a darn thing about them. Quit trying to be a hero!

Shall we say "drunkstupidboy, trying to make himself look less like a moron"?

This sounds like the same feller as our star 'getdrunk' who started this wonderful thread.

well first off i posted in the yamaha dirt bike spot because im talking about the yz426 dirt bike motor not the yfz450 motor because their not the same motor so i posted in here instead because i figerd i would better info sinse this is the spot for that bike.

and i wanted to know how much power i would have because the motor i just baught is a yz426 dirt bike motor and im going to be using k&n air filter/ white bros R seiries full system /the cam mod/ and riunning no air box so i was wondering what it would be putting out.

and about the shortining of teh pipes it does give bottom end. tc racing is a quad muffler compinier and they sell shortys and they add bottom end.
if you run too short of a muffler then you gain top. but if you do it right you gain bottom.

i wanted a lightend fly wheel so that it has more torq in the quad. can you put a yfz450 quad fly wheel in the yz426 motor?

every thing i said made sinse. if you were confused about teh clutch thing then you dont know any thing about clutches. when you buy an aftermarket clutch kit the quad feels a little more torqy. this is called a lightend fly wheel effect. i was wondering if it is the aftermarket plates that make that happen or if it is the stiffer springs.

its 13 hours a week of school

im always full throtol thats why my 400ex motor needed rings every 2 months and is now pritty shot.

i always have my helmit on.

i dont drive drunk. but have drove a couple times a little buzzed up.

about the training wheels thing well i may have 2 extra tires but quads put in faster lap times on the track.

i do take jumps. heres a pic part of my track act=Attach&type=post&id=1512578' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>

my quad is not a pos. heres a old pic of it. it looks a little different now.

My god!! Stay in school boy, maybe even make it 18 hours a week, I dont know whats scarier, your education or your thinking

omg you people are such *** holes. all i asked was how much power do you think i should have. I POSTED IN THE DIRT BIKE SECTION BECAUSE THIS IS THE YZ426 DIRT BIKE MOTOR NOT A YAMAHA ATV MOTOR!

that other guy with 1 post wasnt me. who ever he was he is right. you guys need to pull your heads out of your ***.

now back to my question. if you cant answer my question then dont post a bunch of nonsense

well its susposed to give more bottom end. and it sounds better. ill probly cut the pipe to make it look better and sound better.

Please stay at Glamis with the rest of your kind. We don't need any more of our real riding areas shut down for the better sound your shorty-ass no packing can will make.

Thank you for noticing.

all i asked was how much power do you think i should have.

None, at least until you give up drinking and get your grades up. If you're incapable of focusing enough attention on something to accomplish that, you probably should not be on a motor vehicle in the first place. And if you don't understand why almost no one on this forum has any respect for a sixteen year-old who promotes himself as being "always mestd up (sic)" and adds that the first among his "interests" is drinking, then get your father to explain it to you. If he can't, ask around. You don't have any respect for yourself. Why should we do something you won't?

But After rereading your post I thought it was "pritty shot" Is it in good shape or is it "pritty shot"

it runs very good. only things wrong is the 2 top end gaskets are a little leaky and during the rebuild the valve seals werent replaced so it burns oil on start up. im probly going to reseal the gaskets today. it starts right up and no odd noises. macanic took a look at the top end like 25 hours ago on motor and didnt say their was anything wrong except the valve seals were old but wont cause any problums.

30 hours on rebuild
25 hours sinse valves adjusted
clutch kit
polished motor

if the motor dosent sell im probly going to make some awsome rider lawnmorer with the motor.
