I have a 2006 yz450f thats been ridden almost every weekend. I estimate about 250 hrs on it. I have done NOTHING to the motor. All basic maintenance using Rotella T oil changes every 2 weekends. Air filter every ride. It still starts like an 80. Sometimes im getting it to TDC and it fires up on me.
replaced parts

spark plug
steering stem bearings
chain and sprockets
front brake pads
fork seals
proper jetting
AP mod
magnetic drain plug
Engine Ice

thats about it really.

valves still in spec?
