I finally got the bike out on the trail, the trails were pretty wet so the sumo fender didn't last long before I put the normal one on.

My 2009 YZ450F...got it a little over a week ago. Real low hours and super clean! Always been a Honda guy, but this bike screams and handles so much better than the CRF i came off of...ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1400953732.718722.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1400953743.783428.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1400953771.456189.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1400953784.721884.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1400953796.022738.jpg

This is my excellent running 2006 yz450f, my first 4 stroke bike and my first ever engine rebuild. I bought the bike late October 2013 and put it together in my basement over the winter in my spare time. I just finished it May 15th 2014 and really learned a lot! Dented the megabomb already :D "Polisport" plastics, "All Motor" graphics kit,"FX" TC4 seat cover, "MSR" lever guards, "Moose" lift straps, "Cycra" skid plate "Maxxis" IT-Desert tires, "GYTR" 9.2oz weighted flywheel, "FMF" Factory Ti exhaust with "FMF" Megabomb head pipe, "FMF" power-up jet kit, "Tusk" fuel screw, "All Balls" steering stem bearings, swing arm bearings, shock pivot bearings, wheel bearings and chain rollers, "Acerbis" chain guide block and "Polisport" slider. Completely rebuilt engine top and bottom using all new oem Yamaha parts throughout.

Picked up this Low hour (so the owner said) 08 YZ450... It was practically brand new.. a left over dealer model... I could not find anything wrong with it, it still had the stock tires, chain etc... $3300.... I could not pass this up as I was in the hunt to get back to 4 stroke racing.. I raced 4 strokes in the early 2000's... then switched to orange 2 smoke... loved it...just missed the low end grunt of 4 strokes.

 

have bought off road equipment to convert and had the suspension set up for woods.. have about 4 hours on it and LOVE it,  thanks for the posts on what to watch for..

Picked up a low hour 2009 YZ450F. Installed new tires/tubes, chain/sprockets, got the suspension serviced with new oil and seals, laced up a new rear wheel (stock was dented on 1side), greased all bearings and linkages, checked valve clearances, cleaned carb, did the o-ring mod but used safety wire instead, new grips and levers, new clutch cable (did not help clutch pull and was a waste of $), soaked clutch plates in oil for 2 days and reinstalled, changed coolant and flushed brake fluid, and I scrubbed on all aluminum surfaces till my hands were sore! Literally every bolt and nut was removed except for removing the engine. I really like the end result and can't wait to get it out and ride. Paid $3000 and now I have $3900 in it. New bike for 1/2 price.image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg

      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?
    • By nate9521
      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
    • By nate9521
      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.
