2003 YZ450F Valve cover hoses

2 posts in this topic

I tore down my 450 to install new faction mx valves. Everything went well and I have put everything back together, the only problem is im missing a hose! I have the larger Breather hose, but I'm missing the smaller one. i know the larger one is an oil overflow in case the bike is laid on its side, but I don't remember what the smaller one is or what it is called, please help me!

The smaller one is the air pressure balance hose for the oil system. It runs from the cam cover to the frame at the left side of the steering head to equalize the pressure in the oil tank with the crankcase air pressure. Just a piece of oil proof vacuum hose will work. Clamp it on.

      I'm finally getting the chance to go to the dunes in Oregon and cant decide weather I should run a 8 or 10 paddle tire on the back of my 81 YZ465 2stroke. Suggestions? Pros and cons for each? Thanks!
