Need Some Help Please... I Have A 04 Yz450f That I Bought New The End Of Last Year... Bike Runs Great I Did My 2nd Oil Change And Put In A New Uni Airfilter..... Question #1 Do I Have To Bring It To The Dealer After A Certian Amount Of Hours To Have The Valves Ajusted???? It Has Maybe 20hrs On It And Seems Ok...... 2# It Back Fires So Bad When I Let Go Of The Gas... Ive Been Reading About This And It Says To Ajust One Of The Screws On The Bottom Of The Carb.. I Did It But Really Didnt Make A Difference Only Turned It A Little Bit Each Way..... I Am Pretty Good With Tools Just Dont Want To Start Changing Stuff For No Reason And I Know The Dealers Going To Stick It To Me So Hard If I Bring It To Them......... Thanks....

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and assume that you don't have the factory manual for the bike? The manual will answer all of those questions asked above and it will also save you a lot of money in the long run. IMHO, I would buy one pronto if I were you and read it from front to back until everything in the manual starts haunting you in your dreams.... Then check back here if you have anymore questions.

You can adjust the valves yourself. You don't need to do a valve job for a while(depending on where and how hard you ride your bike).The reason your bike is backfiring is because it is jetted wrong. Re jet and you'll be good to go.

The idea is good, but you don't need to buy one unless you insist:

The bike may also simply have a loose clamp at the mid pipe joint. The valves should be checked, but I doubt they need adjusting.

You can print the ones from the site I linked to. Print what you need in the shop and don't worry about getting it dirty. :busted:

yeah, I just did that for a WR250F Full engine rebuild and things can get interesting when there are 60 pages floating around my shop, but does make things easy sometimes.

20 hours, and it's only your 2nd oil change and you finally JUST put a new air filter in? Wow, your aching for a big head ache if you don't smarten up with your maintainance!!

Change your oil at no more than 5 hours, oil filter every 2nd change, clean your air filter every ride!
Pick up the manual, and it will show you step by step how to check the valves, it's pretty informative.
