Question about 07

8 posts in this topic

Pick mine up Wednesday, getting a blue one.. I already have my springs ordered went with OEM Kayaba.. Typical tall bars and tall seat, I can get a DrD system for under $175 bucks so i might get that. My question is the jetting and oil .. ya ya I read like a 50 page thread on oils.. Yamalube I can get for cheap but I dunno if it is as cheap as the Rotella stuff. You guys running regular rotella or synthetic blend? Then there is the jetting. the 06's had a 42 pilot right? The 07 has a 45? People that own the 07 did you rejet? I am in norcal sea level.. Thanks for any info

The oil is a huge debate...you cannot go wrong with yamalube

My 07 @ 5500ft was still a bit lean, i have gone to a 162, 2.5 out on fs.

I am still going back and forth with jets!

I think you can.

niether. I use Amsoil MCF

The pilot in the '07 is a 45, which is what I run in our '06. The web site says it comes with a 160 MJ. I run a 165 You may find it lean on top. I'd bump the main to 165 first and see how it works out.

Gray, dont want to start an oil debate (i have read a few of them!).....I just always thought factory brand oils are designed for their brand of bikes.

Is there any problems out there related to the yamalube out there? I am not in love with the stuff, and if there is could use a suggestion on a few to try. I am fresh from the CRF forum!

Thanks

Tests that I have seen show that it does not perform as well as a number of other oils, and that in particular, it fails to stay in grade very well. Quite a few people here have complained of clutch issues (grabbing, chatter, drag) that were apparently caused by its use. And it isn't all that cheap, really.

A 250 f team dyno tested oils and came up with Motul 300 V as the horsepower leader which means it had the least friction. Retails for 15.00 a quart.

I personally use Amsoil Formula 4-Stroke® Power Sports

0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil which retails for 7.75 per quart and works great.
