If I had an '08 or '09, and I couldn't find an '06 CDI without having to pay $250+ for it, yeah, I'd probably go for the Vortex, or something similar. Multiple maps would be a cool feature sometimes.

On the oil, it's real simple: Oil & Filter, 1 LITER; oil w/out filter, 1 QUART

I've tried TT on an iPod, and unless you can use something like a stylus from an old Palm Pilot, I'd give up on it. Too many links all over the page...:thumbsup:

Could the vortex give that low end hit that 06 will give me?

I like the IMS 3.1 for the woods, heavy GYTR flywheel, Rekluse Pro, 51T rear sprocket. I have been using Dunlop D952's, they seem to work pretty good.

The Zip-Ty carb mod was the best $100 I've spent on my bike.

$550.00 for the clutch, but Rekluse is just a few blocks away.

I love it.

When you get the money for the clutch together, go to the classifieds and subscribe to the Yamaha Parts category. There have been a few Rekluse clutches go through there. I got my Z-Start Pro used from a TT Member, and it's made riding the tight stuff a lot simpler. I only paid $350 for it, and got it with the original box and all the instructions. Rekluse keeps the installation, tuning, and tuning manuals online at their web site.

WB's got a great set-up here :thumbsup:
With my 07 I run MX31's and 51's, ZipTy mod+R&D bowl+alum bearing throttle, ZipTy coolant, Scotts damper, 06 CDI, 06 full Hinson clutch, FMF Megabomb/Q4Ti, Tag Metals 13/50, Regina O-ring, Smart Performance suspension work (heavier springs, stock clicker settings +/- a few clicks depending on where I'm riding, I'm 6'3" 200lbs)...Breather hose reroute...No flywheel weight...This set-up is perfect for me as I don't do a lot of forest type single track...More mountainous desert, sand dunes, and occasional track days...

Ya the IMS 3.1 has 3.1 gal of fuel, stock on my 07 is 1.8. On a normal ride day with my slower buddy I think I'm good for 80 miles pretty easy..

I also run a Regina O-ring and did the breather hose mod.

Rerouting the breather hose to the airbox eliminates the small possibility of anything being sucked up by it...Only really needed if you're riding in mud, sand, or water...Even then, it's debatable, and is more of a mod that just brings ease of mind to those of us who ride in those conditions (and a few of us have experienced sucking up sand)...Another mod many of us have done is plugged the oil drain hole that goes from the filter area to the lower oil filter cover bolt (to prevent this bolt from stripping because of oil debris)...http://www.thumperta...ad.php?t=634724

Well it's not so much about over torquing it, it's more because little metal shavings get in there and compromise the threads after numerous oil changes...But no biggie, just something that guys who change the oil a whole lot don't want to eventually deal with...Once you have the supplies (right size bit and ball bearing) it's just a few minute inexpensive mod...

Nope, just review the stuff that's already been talked about above...I don't know the history of your bike or how many hours are on it, but get your carb dialed in, check the valve clearances, maybe time for a new cam chain (they're junk like the stock drive chain and can cause massive problems once stretched), set your sag and suspension to your height/weight, new chain and sprocket, new tires, and new pipe (if you can afford it)...And you'll be ready to rip!:thumbsup:
Post some pics of it, especially of the pipe dent, so we can confirm or deny that's where your negative performance issues may be...

If you don't want to send your carb out I would get a jd jetting kit. It really woke up the bottom end on my bike. Also if someone else can chime in on this, why not get an oem 06 or 07 exhaust? They can be had for 100 bucks on ebay. As for the dents in the header, take it off, fill it with some water, and place it in the freezer and that should make them much better. I highly recommend rerouting your breather if you even think you're gonna be around water. I had the unfortunate experience of sucking in water when I stalled in a stream.

I actually bought the bike new and it's go bout max is 24 hours in two months. But I already set my sag and all I need is tires, the stock ones arent very good.

Also I think my dent own too bad because the bike ran really good yesterday and the day before. I'm thinking some of the temp changes is making it run different.

Also about that 06 or 07 system, will I. Make my bike perform like if I put a drd exhaust on it? Because I saw the oem 06 And 07 systems for cheap.

But I can get a drd SS system for $300 since I work at my dealer.

Man there are some many choices

Put in some overtime or pick up some extra hours, stick with what you have for now, and save up for the complete drd system, not just the slip on...Then you'll definitely notice a big improvement...
