Unlike most of everyone here, i took my old plastics off which were full of graphics and what not & went with a simpler approach. My 07.

Just picked up my 2006 YZ450F with a fresh rebuild. I have the dirt set-up in the garage but the supermoto gear is installed right now. Modification includes FMF Fat Boy, Pro Taper fat bars, Excel front and rear wheels wrapped in Bridgestone Battlax 120 front 150 rear. Running lean with a lot of back-firing right now but plan on tinkering with the mixture soon. Head light and tail light brands are unknown!

 

So far so good, it's a big change from my Buell 1125R but I'm having so much more fun on it.

Found a 09' in the warehouse at one of the dealerships that I service. Bike had 10 minutes on it. Quite a score.

Picked up this very clean 2006 last month. This is my first modern bike. Last one was a 1978 TT500 that was a mess. I have a YZF450 quad so I am familiar with this engine. So far I have focused on maintenance only: valve adjust, clean carb & jetting, chain & sprocket, grips, bar pad, etc.. Once I get some riding time I will decide if it needs more!

My 2007 YZ450F White Ltd Ed, all shined up, and all dirty after a good weekend riding with the gf on her CRF-150F!

She's my first 450, so far I'm in love! Oodles more power than my previous 250F, I'm very happy with it.

My 06 that was purposely purchased as an investment to be resold after a freshening up. Since then I have fallen in love with it and decided to sell my Ktm instead. Still some upgrades left to do, wheels and exhaust but this things a blast to ride. Can't believe how nimble it feels for a fatty 450

My new to me aka deal too good to pass up 07 YZ450F, it belonged to a local racer, traded to a tattoo artists as payment, sold for cheap to me. My last bike (WR 456) was stolen so this will make a nice replacement. Already has a ProTaper bars and FMF Q2 pipe. Only plans are a sprocket change and weighted flywheel to smooth it out on the trails in the mountains.

This is the last round of upgrades for my 06, now time to get it dirty. Swapped to a street titled WR frame, WR fuel tank, full fmf, tires and wheels, and Protune did the suspension. This thing is ready for battle

      So I just did a rebuild on my 98 Yz80, and it wont start. At first, we put the gaskets on wrong, so coolant was leaking everywhere. After we fixed that, and put everything back into place again, piston went up and down smoothly, and it has great compression. The problem is, it does not want to start. Im not really sure what to do, because before, my compression was very low, so I did a rebuild, but now it still does not start. So I need help.

      Nice used vintage Don Vesco desert fuel tank for the Yamaha TT/XT500's. Removed from a '79 so may not fit the earlier models. In great shape, not sun-baked, Vesco petcock, Preston Petty cap and all mounting hardware included. Price is OBO plus shipping.

      Selling my immaculate 2016.5 KTM 250SXF Factory Edition with only 9.6hrs on it since new. Has been vet ridden and cared for. I have a clean title in hand for the bike. Bike has the following...
       -SMPro Platinum wheelset and new Dunlop MS3 tires with only a few rides on them ($1000 wheelset)
       -D.I.D ERT2 chain only a few rides
       -Orange Renthal sprocket, and 13T countershaft sprocket only a few rides
       -Mapped by Tokyo Mods for U4.4 (still have standard map also for pump gas)
       -WP AER 48mm air forks
       - FMF 4.1 titanium slip on muffler
       Bike will come with stock header pipe but still have the FMF factory Titanium slip on. Will also take off the titanium bolts and Renthal bars and put back on the stock ones. Will aslo come with triangle stand, manual, clean title, extra twin air filter, 14T countershaft sprocket, WP air pump for the forks, half a can of U4.4 fuel, and KTM tool kit. NO TRADES. NO FINANCING. NO LOWBALLERS. Bike is in showroom condition and the Factory Editions are very hard to find used in this kind of shape or new. $6800 price is FIRM.

      I added skateboard grip tape to the frame by my pegs and on the subframe for extra grip.

      I just ordered a piston kit for my 1998 yz80, and it does not fit into my cylinder. I can't really remember if its a 47.5 mm or 47, i'm pretty sure it's a 47.5 but it just does not fit into my cylinder. My cylinder does have a big groove in it, so do I need a new cylinder for it to fit, or a new piston? Please respond ASAP!
