Hello! Troll alert

13 posts in this topic

Thought I'd introduce myself and let everyone know im trolling around in here sponging up your informations.

 

My name is Jeff,  I just picked up this Gem on Sunday for a Measly $2500  (i thought it was a great deal idk if it really was)

 

It is a 06 WR450 with 347 original miles second owner;  Owner put the fully GYT-R Exhaust , New Renthal Fatbars, Better intake filter, Jets and associated pilots as well as has already done all the "free" mods.

 

Im looking forward to making it mine starting with a stronger springs (I'm a big Guy 6'3"  well over 250 haha) also going to put a Seat Concepts seat and a UFO rear fender to make it look more like the 07 up rear... I also before riding season want to pull the bearings and change/ regrease them as I see that is a problem area on these even when ridden very little.

 

Sooo heres a picture,  I wont post much mostly getting info but as I learn how its done propper I may interject my .02.

You should get a guts tall. SC does not make a tall for that bike. I have an 06, I'm just under 6,3.

Thanks I'll look into that!  I do think I want something a little taller.

Don't get the soft foam either. I learned the hard way that the soft is WAYYY to soft. You are a big boy and will sink right to the bottom of it like I did. Mine is back at their shop getting firm foam :(

Welcome!

 

Looks like you got a great deal.

 

Do an oil change. Carefully check the filter on the bottom of the oil tank, just to ensure it is clear. Most rarely do and often there is manufacturing jit on the screen.

 

If you did not get the owners manual, you can D/L it for free from Yamaha.

Thanks for the tips... I actually work with the guy that I got it from sooo  he filled me in on everything as well as did the oil change before I got it (since its a beotch) he also put a new rear tire on and a new O ring chain.  I have the Manual and ALL of the stock parts.  including the AIS factory jets factory bars and risers as well as factory exhaust that looks brand new haha.

I would recommend going with:

 

.54 front springs

6.3 rear springs

Smart performance or Race Tech revalving

BRP 'submount' bar risers and Scotts steering damper

Guts racing tall/firm seat

Thats the plan...  Question, where does one buy a Guts seat?  I googled it and could not find a Tall seat in the selections for the WR450 and it only goes down to 2007.  Any help is much appreciated.

      Hi , I'm new here and I just purchased a spoke tourque wrench kit  "Excel (TWS-210ANS) 7-Piece Adjustable Spoke Torque Wrench Set" for my 2008 Yamaha  YZF450, the front spokes are smaller than the 6 that came with the bike and the rear spokes are larger than the 7 that came with the bike (I bought it New) Does any one know what sizes the front and rear spoke nipples are? I can still stop my order and seek the correct size somewhere. I find it lame that they gave me the wrong spoke wrench.
      Thanks in advance,
      Brent

      Hello everyone, you wouldn't believe the brain dead mistake I made. So I installed my crank into the right side engine case on my 02 YZ426F last night. (Keyword Night) Then I proceeded to install the left side engine case onto the crank and trans with the Tusk Crank Installer. All is fine and dandy until I realized I didn't put any Yamabond on the case halves.  Now the left side case will not come back off the crank for the life of me. Note: The first time I split the cases the left side case came off without any hiccups. I am using the splitting tabs built into the case by the way. Does anyone have any tips? Also, why is the left side case being so stubborn this time? I hope I don't have to order a case splitter, those tabs saved me $70!
