Here's the 2008 YZ450F I picked up a few weeks ago. I haven't done much to her yet, but plan to do quite a bit.

I'm thinking, black plastics with a graphic kit that has a mostly black background, but with red elements. Right now, the all white look is just too plain. I'll post some after photos as soon as I can.

Hey I have a broken leg too, i broke my lower left fibula and severed my sensory nerve in my foot by over shooting a large table top then landing to flat and then going over a berm approximately 50ft after the landing. it is a nightmare. Anyways how do you upload photos to this cite like you guys did?

I have a comment about the breather hose is it just for show or does it hold a purpose, I see it is wider than the stock breather, will this help with anything?

Good question. That crank case hose picyured was from the 1st production run and It was a little larger OD but really not that much..... The color makes it look that way when it pops. We reduced the OD on the 2nd run.

To lumpy, alright I see. the reason im asking is because the previous owner cut about 4 inches of the breather hose on my 09 yz450f. it didnt reach to the rubber brackets it is suppose to go into. I put a slightly thiner tube into my old cut hose to make it reach and I was just curious if that would affect anything negatively.

Here's my 09' which I haven't used in well over a year. It's been sitting in my basement. The pic was taken in 2010 and the bike hasn't changed since I have not been riding it. I had a ride to race the 2012 last summer so never got this poor old girl out but I have to this year. I think it's got 65 hrs on it from the first day it was started. I put alot of work into this bike, one of the reasons I don't want to get rid of it. Pretty much everything you can do to it has been done. Other than no motor work, the motor has had 2 new yamaha top end kits put in it. I added my own Honda steering damper on it to. Yes I know I'm very anal when it comes to these bikes lol.

      I didnt know there were different versions of the MX FCR carb. I have a Gen III and didnt know the valve seat was pressed in. I just thought it was hard to get out like everything else (bike had been sitting for years). So i drilled the seat out thinking that i would replace it. Now i cant find a seat. Is there any way around this without buying a new carb?

      So apparently some mx fcr carbs have removable valve seats and some dont. I didnt know this and just thought mine was really stuck in there so i drilled it out. Was going to replace it anyway. But it turns out that i have the model that is not suppose to have the valve seat removed. or so i think. Is anyone aware of this difference between the same carb. Do you know where i can get another valve seat? its off a 2003 yz450f

      the carb on my 03 yz450f is a keihin mx fcr 39. I know that the old pwk models had a gasket in the body that was not to be removed or soaked because it would ruin the gasket. Should I not soak the body of the fcr 39 in something like berryman? also is the thing underneath the needle valve (the place the valve sits in) suppose to come out? it looks like there is a new one in my kit but i cant get the old one out

      Hey all, recently getting into motocross again and bought a used bike from a kid who lacked on the maintenance side of things for the bike. What I have found / believe is happening is oil is leaking out of the cylinder head breather tube. Before going on my first ride with the bike I had a respectable amount of oil right in the middle of the checkered oil marks on the dip sticks. However after about 5 hours riding I checked the oil to find that it was barely even on the dip stick. I know there has been oil leaking out of the breather but could have been caused because an overflow on the oil change from the kid. I mean the bike is 8 years old maybe it is time for some top end work. On that note would a person change out the piston regardless of condition along with the rings? Is it possible the rings are just not positioned right? I would definitely do the valves while I have the bike open anyways.
       
      Any info would be greatly appreciated I just find it odd that it took 5 hours to drain, reading through other posts some guys were having puddles of oil after 20 minuets of running time.
