I have a Dr.d on my 14. It is more quiet than the stock pipe.

I made this comparison vid with mine

Watch "FULL DR.D EXHAUST SYSTEM COMPARISON 2014YZ450F FU…" on YouTube

It has it's moments. It's a little more difficult if the ground is uneven, but it's very stable and allows access to the drain plug easier than most.

What brand is that frame guards and how much $$$? I bought the expensive tall pro-carbon version because didn't found any other.

I found them on Rocky Mountain ATV's website.They are Acerbis and run about $40 plus shipping..

have you tested the frame gaurds out? They gonna last? I've been eye balling those for a month just havnt pulled the trigger. Plus they look own white not the off white acrebis always sends me

I've only got a couple of hours on the bike at this point and probably only one on the guards. They are a good match to the white plastic on the bike, but they also come in silver that blends really well with the frame. They seem to be pretty durable as my SG 10's have worn the rubber pads off the inside of the ankle pivot and the bolt is exposed. They are holding up really well to the metal rubbing against them. I like them, and while not as grippy as the tape I was using on my KX they seem to provide more grip than the frame alone.

cool man, looked all over for reviews or just a pic of a full bike with them installed. I think I'll go silver

      Hi all,

      I'm interested in a good left hand rear brake set-up for the WR250R. Saw the OXbrake but as it uses a cable instead of a hydraulic cylinder so I heard it lacks power. 

      So I'm looking at the left hand rear brake kit made by Rekluse. The problem however, is the R's rear master cylinder isn't supported. So I'm thinking I'll swap the master cylinder out for one that is, and install the kit.

      So would anyone be able to tell me which of the following Yamaha rear master cylinders would be a straight swap for the R? Rekluse offers the left hand rear brake kit for all of them:

       
      ALTERNATIVELY: I have a 2012 Kawasaki ZX-6R front brake master cylinder and lever from my wreck. What if I found a way to fit that on the bar and just ran a braided line straight to the rear brake caliper and did away with the rear brake pedal completely? Sounds crazy but could it work?

      Thanks heaps in advance!

      In the past I've used foam air filter oils like uní oil and Yamalube's air filter oil, but Im bottles are dry. I still have some 2 stroke oil from my old bike, will it work just as fine for oiling the air filter? It's Yamalube 2-cycle oil. Thanks for any help you give me.

      Hey all,
      I've been having problems with my throttle position sensor on my Yamaha WR450F 2005. When the sensor is plugged in the bike runs very lumpy on constant throttle and is nearly un-ride-able. 
       
      In the manual, and all over the internet, there are values of which the TPS must be set at and what resistance it should have.
       
      These are :
      4-6 ohms resistance
      0.58 - 0.78 volts
       
      My TPS is set perfectly within these values, being 4.9ohms and 0.72 volts. 
       
      This indicates to me that my TPS is fine and there is no point buying another? But as soon as i unplug the sensor it does run NEARLY perfect, still very very slightly lumpy but hardly noticeable.
       
      Has anyone else had correct readings on their TPS but still isn't working? any help? I don't want to spend £300 on a sensor then it not actually be the problem?
       
      Thanks

      Hello all,
      I recently picked up a 1978 Yamaha IT175 off of Craigslist that needed a ring. Instead of doing just the ring, I have ordered a new piston and ring and am going to replace both. 
      I have never worked on a 2 stroke this old before and have never done a top end on any bike before, so I was wondering if anyone could put me in the direction of an instruction sheet for the top end on this bike as well as some tip and tricks for general stuff. Also, if anyone has first hand experience with a similar bike, that would be awesome!
      Thank you all in advance!
