Ordering own parts? For a 2008 yz450f

7 posts in this topic

So I was looking to order new can chains off rocky mt atv and it asked me if I had one of the three models (fx, fxl, fxw)

How do I determine?

Non of the above. There was two models of YZ450 a standard one and a white limited edition one. Either model has the same chain and sprockets.

The "L" refers to blue, and the "W" to white, but the "X" has no place in the question.  In the case of the chain and sprockets, none of that matters because as Steve said, they all use the same ones.

This is pretty much the equivalent of an auto parts store asking what engine you have in order to sell you wiper blades. 

 

Go with a good chain, not the cheapest option. A good chain costs less in the long run than a cheap chain.

Are you talking about drive chain or cam chain?

 

Either way it doesn't matter, it's the same between the different sub-models

I once had the parts guy at the Chevy store ask me if the Corvette I wanted a driveshaft for had power seats.  There were actually two different shafts.  Never found out why, but you should have been there when he asked me that.

i work in a parts store and sometimes the manufacturers do ask some weird questions, but sometimes those silly questions are just in-experienced counter peeps.. the computer look up programs promt them to ask these questions and unless they know for sure it doesn't make a difference they have to ask.
