The fuel vent hose that came with the kit doesn't fit FYI, the rest do. Spotted your logo I take it.

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.

they are the right size. Did you read in the directions where it said to warm the virgin hose and use a little lube to get it on?

I lubed it and it wasn't even close so I just used the hose that came with the bike

put the all the hoses on this 450 at Loretta Lynns. I put the end in my mouth heating tthe end and getting a little spit on it and it slides on with needle nose pliers.

I have used Motohose for many years and the vent hose went on my 2014 and 2015 YZF's. The trick is put the end of the hose in hot water for a minute or two and she will go on. I will post a couple pics today.

No unfortunately but you can play around with it to get that hit back I'm sure try some of the maps on this thread can get you were you want.

Off-road style 2014. I added a stabilizer , Rekluse clutch, skid plate , radiator cages, IMS oversize gas tank, FMF slip on with spark arrestor, hand guards, BD squadron headlight and had the suspension revalved.

Hey, can you post some more pics of the tank? I'm hoping to get one soon myself. I've got the same headlight, night riding is amazing with it! Love my '14 off-road.

I originally bought the Acerbis , but didn't like that you give up the gas cap cover and end up puting your nuts on the cap. The IMS tank went on well and holds what is says it should (2.9 gallons).

My brother has the BD single LaPaz hid headlight on his and we did a side by side comparison. The hid might be a smidge better, but more than anything, they are just different. His light is white while mine was a little yellow. Perhaps they did that to help with Dusty conditions. In the end, I think the benefit of the lighter weight of the led and the fact that it is $300 cheaper makes it a no brainer. Awesome light!

      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.

      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
