Just Purchased A YZ450FX! Need advice with build list

Alright... GYTR Rad cages, Renthal Twinwalls, ODI grips and Race Tech Springs

are in! Time to strip this thing down and build her back up!

I bought some ODI grips I need to install as well.  Not to keen on sanding down the bars to get the clutch side to fit but such is life.

Haven't read each post,,,hope you have a tub of grease for all the bearings. It needs it.

Yeah I swapped bars from my KX450F, so the ODI grips slip on with a few light hits of a dead blow hammer. 

They were a bitch to get off though.

I greased all the linkages... Compared to my last Yamaha (2006 YZ450F), this 450FX was pretty well greased up

from the factory. Far more grease than I had expected. My 06 was bone dry.

My odi grips slipped on fine on the clutch side. Just a little push with my hand and it was on. Bars are the Kx high bends.
