Top end parts

Well guy's,looks like its time for a top end.

I finally lost some compression so I figured its about time to change the top end, I have a 2001 model with 400 hours plus on it, I guess thats not to bad considering the hours........there aint a 2-stroke that will log that many on the same top end.

I tore it down today and looks pretty good, its just a little out of tolerence.

Where is the best and quickest place to get Top end parts........Piston, cylinder, ect.

Thanks, Jason

Jason,

On previous bikes, I have had good luck ordering directly from White Brothers. Most the time they have the parts in stock and they get to my house in 5 days (via UPS ground)! I have had better luck with JE pistons rather than Wiseco (Eric Gorr/Rich Rohrich and others techies over on dirtrider.net were talking about the differences between pistons awhile ago, fairly interesting read) Good luck on your new top end...it isnt too hard on a 4 stroke just time consuming! I am sure I will need a top end soon! I have to adjust my valves in the next week, before I ride again!

Did you do a compression test? If so what did it read? Later,

Garrett

I have had great luck with both Montclair Yamaha & North County Yamaha (both in CA), both seem to do quite a bit of mail-order business and in my experience have better inventory than Powersports Pro (Partsfish.com) and comparable prices, but of course this will depend on the part. I live in El Paso and typically get stuff on Wed or Thur if I order on Mon. I’ve had two fairly large orders from NCY (over five hun) and recvd discounts both times.

Although if you are fortunate enough to have a competent local dealer it will be more convenient to go that route, especially if you or they don’t get all the correct parts initially.

Montclair Yamaha: 800-743-3926

NCY: 800-225-1629

Hope this helps.
