Nice bike.. Are those carbon pipe guards available still.. I know JGR make them too but I haven't found them anywhere else..

When i ordered it was out of stock and needed to be produced, but after 5 days i had it at my door. Awesome customer service. Search for Pro-Carbon Racing.

Mostly stock. Just had rims and hubs powder coated (black rims, gold hubs). Also suspension re-valved for my weight (200lbs.) and gold pro taper chain. Love this bike

I'm also at that weight. How do you like the revalved suspension vs stock?. I'm happy with my springs they're just about spot on not worth the $ to get new ones.

Stock springs are perfect for my weight. The re-valve was worth every penny. Bike ride a hell of a lot better. Although the stock suspension set up is very smooth, my bike feels a lot better now. Does t bottom out as easily and smoother through the chop.

I had it done at AHM factory services located in Yoruba Linda, CA

I feel the suspension is great too I don't have bottoming issues but I would like it better in the choppy bumps. How much did it run you if you don't mind me asking?

I ride for them so I got a deal but contact them and ask. I believe re-valve is around 300. But like I said if you are looking for better handling it's well worth it.

      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!
