Here's mine

The only thing I have put on is a Pro Circuit lowering link, GYTR fill cap, and magnetic drain plug. Oh and the stopper assembly for piece of mind.

I see your using the best hoses in the game. Motohose is top notch and Steve is the best to deal with.

Only one gripe: overflow hose and gas vent hose are not the right size. Maybe motohose guy will read this and send me one. I can squeeze the overflow on but not the gas.

Put on some 1/4 turn airbox fastners, hid my gas overflow tube and put in some PC per filters in the shrouds.

I want to get the 1/4 turn fasteners and good call on the shroud filters something I want also! Didn't even thing of the hose relocation through the air box it looks good. I put on a stubbie and heated to shape it better. Also what is up with the cut out of the bar pad if I may ask?

I'm sure you'll get the right answer soon enough but it looks to be cut out for an hour meter, possibly a trail tech type.

Mine is a 2015. I just picked it up last Friday. I changed out the bars and grips. And I put a Braking oversized rotor on it before I took it out for the fist ride. Lessons learned from other YZ's I've owned in the past. I'm stoked on my purchase. The bike is great! Lots of fun to ride. ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1408497612.096391.jpg

^^ Looks great. Good call on the oversized rotor, also. I'm really digging the blue version of the '15.

Just picked up a 2015 last week. I added a skid plate and spark arrester end cap today. I need to get my hand guards and radiator guards on and it'll be ready for the billygoat trails. Cant wait to show my buddys my "new front tire"  LOL

Coming from a badass 07 Honda I was a little worried during my 4 hour drive to buy the new Yamaha , had never ridden one. Bought it Saturday( 3 days ago) and already been riding 3 times. The bike is an absolute dream. Thought I may keep Honda just to have, but this thing is waaaayyyyyy better in every way. First thing I noticed was how great the suspension felt. Very predictable and comfortable. Motor is surprisingly smooth but keeps pulling in the top. No need to get very close to the rev limiter.. Absolutely blown away by her. The ONLY thing I did was lower the forks about half an inch. I weigh 160 and am 6ft.

      Hello great people of thumper talk. Well I've been having some problems with my old 2002 YZ250F. I was riding a few days ago when my bike just sputtered to a stop almost like it ran out of gas. Well gas was not the problem and I couldn't get her to run she would only fire for a second then die. I found that one of my TPS wires snapped, so I figured the reason it wasn't running was because of that wire. After soldering it back together it was still doing the same thing, so I just left it for the night. When I came back the next day whilst kicking it over I noticed all of a sudden the kicker stopped. the motor was seized. I tried turning the crankshaft at the flywheel and it would not budge forward at all but it would turn backwards or clockwise, so from here I figure I'll start taking the bike apart and figure out whats locking it up. Once I removed the cylinder head I was at a surprise when I saw this relatively large piece of brass sitting on top of my piston. I was thinking where in the hell did that come from. It was getting too late for me to go any further tonight, so I figured I would post a picture on here to see if anyone can tell me what they think this piece may go to. Is it something in the crank maybe up by the valves, from the carburetor I have no idea. It just amazes me that the piece is so intact since it was sitting on top of my piston. Also after that I did try turning the crank again, and it did turn but it felt horrible. It was very clunky and it sounded like shit might be grinding in there so I stopped. Well thanks for taking a look and if you have any insight as to where that piece might have come from please let me know. Other than that I'll be breakin her down further tomorrow.

      Hi all,
      I have had my 1978 SR500 is storage for 13 years and over the last year I have done a base restoration but yet to do any work on the motor. The bike was running well last in use  (13 years ago). I have recently got it stated and noticed it is running extremely hot and backfiring, the idle speed also varies a fair bit. i have had the carb cleaned and put a new air filter in but both didn't seem to make a difference. would anybody have any suggestions how to fix this problem.
      would love your thoughts. cheers

      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.
