Why are you second guessing, ...............

Stock jetting means overheating. Cutting open your air box only, would make it even leaner, and even hotter.

Thanks Krannie. That was what I needed to hear. You just verified what I already knew.

I replaced the fork seals, changed the oil, cleaned the air filter, put on a new front tire, replaced the plug, cut my old front fender to keep it from shaking past 55 and manged to strip out the lower hex bolt on the oil filter plate :busted:

where is the best place to order smog plug kit?

The TT Store, of course!!! :busted:

Your local stealer (erm, dealer) might have one as well. I personally used the GYTR kit because I'm familiar with it. Both do essentially the same thing.

BTW, I started my 450 yesterday and I have crap gas now...

Serves me right for letting it sit for a bit whilst I worked on other stuff. :thumbsup:

You really should consider running either fuel stabilizer or octane booster with fuel stabilizing capabilities.

I put maxima hi-test in my gas and have never had a problem. This year alon I've gone months at a time without even touching it and its always started and ran like normal even with old gas in the float bowl (I know I know :thumbsup:).

Quick headlight change.

The old had me bored with the oldschool square style. I must admit, I have never liked Allien Cap but it sure has grown on me.

      Amazing bike but due to family obligations it sits in my garage most of the time. The bike has maybe 5 hours on it and runs like new. It comes with a GYTR FMF silencer with spark arrestor. There are some scratches on the plastic and and pipe from trail riding but that's what it is made for and its only cosmetic. The bike has been maintained and garage kept. If you have any questions please text me at (415)three 4 two- 4 five 8 six.

      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...

       -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.
