Valves still haven't moved, plan on replacing piston and camchain this winter.
Only real issues is I need to replace waterpump and countershaft seals. Just waiting on parts now......
I'm on second set of brake pads, chain/sprocket, wheel bearings, chain guide.
I think that about does her.

Previous owner rode it to work for the summer, then it sat.
An '04 with that low clicks seems like it's still in diapers! Grab it! This is my first real venture with Yamaha, and I must say, this bike for me is a keeper!
Over-engineered and built to last, and so,so,so much fun.....

Most durable hard enduro in my opinion I can compare with a lot of KTM of my friends.

I can tell you that I put on about 4,000 km's on it last summer (when I first got it), and the only thing I did was change the oil every 500 km's, filter every second change, and keep the air filter clean.
Started to smoke a small amount at high rev's at the end of the season....took it apart this spring.
Rings were worn, cylinder had lost most of it's cross hatch, cam chain was completely toast (it wore the cam sprockets slightly, and I bet it was the original chain). Thats it, everything else was great.
Took cylinder to autoshop and they simply honed it to get some cross hatch in it, new rings, new timing chain. I put in a set of Hot Cam's, but didn't HAVE too (I didn't need much of a excuse), added a FMF power core, and JD kit...
I got about 1,000 km's on it this year since top end work....no issues what so ever, and it hauls ass.
