2014 What mods have you done?

28 posts in this topic

Keen to see what mods and aftermarket parts are getting bolted up out there on the 2014 YZ450F?

Are the mods worth their $$$$ or is stock better??? Pros Cons..

Yoshimura slip on pipe that I have since removed, going back to the stock pipe. Couldn't find a map that I was happy with. Power was up all over, but lacked the smooth delivery of the stock pipe. I don't want more power out of this 450. I want better power. 

Oversized front rotor, ironman rear sprocket and o-ring chain, grips and other miscellaneous bits. Nothing too crazy as the bike is pretty amazing stock once the suspension is set up properly.

 

Anyone want to buy a Yoshi slip on with about 10 hours on it? Still brand new!

What reason are you getting thr dr.d exhaust when you already are running the fmf.

I done my research and ordered a full dr.d system which will be here this week.

I only got the DrD pipe to try, really like the FmF but, just want the best and mx mag. said DrD is the better pipe. I'm going to try and see. I will sell a FMF TI system or a DrD system. Edited by Denaki

I had the SM Pros for my Honda. ... Quality rim. Super jealous... My next mod is the "injectioneering" for the throttle body.

I ran sm pro on my Honda too. They were tough as nails. It will look cool wifh blue rims I think.

I have an oversized rotor and aftermarket gas. Very happy so far. Would like to add a skid plate and will be looking for tires, chain and sprockets soon.

SM Pro blue / black wheel set. 270mm Braking wave rotor.

Jase,

Honest opinion. Do you like your YZ better than your 13 CRF 450?

Buying the '14 YZ was the best decision I've ever made. So glad I sold my '13 crf 450 for this bike. Getting the throttle body mod on my bike next week. I'll post new pics soon.

I had no intention to move from the Honda , I was at the track and a friend offered me a ride on His 2014 KX450f and kx250f.

After running some laps on the Kawasaki , I realized what I have been missing.... POWER!!!!

I Had no interest in a new Kawi (wanted to get away from the air fork too)

2 days later I had traded my much loved 2013 crf450r Up to the Yamaha. .. Biggest thing I liked about the Honda was the feel of the bike - ergos etc.

Long story short.

Do I like it better Jeff? YES!!! Far and away better...

Get some pics up Jeff, looking foward to it!!!

      I have a 2006 yz250. It was fully rebuilt top to bottom last winter before racing started
      rode all year and it was fine
      the problem I am having after winter start up is
      starts no problem, run decent, when I turn the throttle smoke and. Lack oil spray out of the silencer like if I put a glove on there's a nice layer of oil
       
      also the part of the carb that comes out of the tps and sits on the throttle slide. To me seems loose as in I can lift it to a point and it doesn't spring back. Is it suppose to stay tight to the top of the slide 
      it feels like it doesn't any force down till about 3/4 throttle when I hold it up with my finger 
       
      also when I lean my bike over the idle picks up a lot

      2009 Husky WR 300.
      New top and bottom end.
      New brake pads and they were just bled. 
      Hyde skid plate.
      FMF Gnarly pipe and FMF Q-Stealth silencer.
      JD Jet kit.
      Comes with extra cylinder, head and piston. 
      Comes with lighter springs for the suspension.
      Pulls like a mule.
      This is an awesome trail bike. If you ride Georgetown, Foresthill, Elkins Flat or Chalk Bluff this bike will not let you down.

      Apologies for the long post, but I’m including as much info as possible.
      I have a 2-Stroke Yamaha TDR250 1KT, same motor as the TZR250 apparently.
      I just completed a top-end rebuild. I only replaced the left piston as the right one look good. Probably should have replaced both, but anyway…
      My problem is the right cylinder/exhaust gets very hot very quickly and smokes a lot. The exhaust is hot only after 30 seconds of idling. The left remains room temperature and does not smoke.
      I don’t want to ride it too much in case it causes irreparable damage. But when I did try to ride her, I can only get a few hundred meters before she cuts out. I have to start again and can not get into 2nd gear before it stalls again. I’d have to limp home at a bicycle’s pace as anything above idle revs kills the engine.
      Not sure if the poor running is related to the hot exhaust, or another problem entirely.
      I’ve done the following troubleshooting:
      - swapped around plugs – no difference
      - swapped around plug leads – no difference
      - swapped around Carburetors (but not the Jet Needles) – This then made the left cylinder smoke and the right smoked a little, but not as much as previously. The carbs are back on their original sides as they are specifically left and right.
      - sprayed carb cleaner onto the carb boots to test for air leaks and that had no effect.
      - Raised the Jet Needle in the right carb for a richer mixture – It appears to smoke less (could be my imagination), but it still gets hot quickly.
      - Checked the plugs again and the troublesome cylinder’s plug looks to be running very rich (all dirty), so I lowered the needle this time for a leaner mixture. Still no difference.
      I removed the exhaust and wiped my finger in the cylinder’s exhaust port. Looks like black paint!
      Has anyone ever experienced this and what was the solution?

      just curious if anyone has ridden both the new and last gen yz450 and how different they REALLY are. i can read reviews all day but theyre all from professional mx racers that probably pick up on little things id never notice. selling my ktm, pretty set on getting me a new yz, my price range is around 4k so that puts me in the range of buying a 2010-2013 yz450. however im being told from a few guys who ride these that i really need to save and spring for a 2014+, the cheapest 2014 i could find was $5000. are the 14's really that much better? should i save and go for one of those? My main actual question is with that same money could i make a 2013 the same or even better? What ever one i decide on ill probably do the same to either for aftermaket parts, exhaust , tuner, fly wheel weight and a lowering link in the rear. Ive ridden a 2015, which is what sold me on one, i loved it! i just dont wanna be disappointed if i get the early gen. either way will be better around the track then my ktm exc! lol, but man that electric start is soo nice

      Hello everyone I am 16 years old and I was a quad rider ever since I was young. I had a ltr 450 that I sold recently. I'm about 5'5"-5'6" tall and weigh about 115 lbs. I rode my friends rm 125 just this past weekend and I enjoyed riding the bike! I'm looking into buying a 125 but I still cant decide weather to buy a yz 125 or a ktm 125 sx. Again I'm a newer rider to dirt bikes but I still know how to ride one and I'm also new to 2 strokes but I've been doing a lot of research lately and learned a lot about them and all the maintenance with them. I will be using the bike for pretty much all trail riding. I just want a reliable bike that I can take care of that will give me no problems. Any Opinions/Preferences? Thankyou Everyone!
