LOL only the gamers will get it. Everyone else is like "why did you pick 4 numbers". I really only wanted the back grounds to go with my YOT graphics. Since N-style said I could have a number I had to make sure it was LEEEEET.

Does that fit straight on? whats the cost? Did you do anything with the rear fender/light?

Its pretty easy to put on. The top bolts right on like the older light. The bottom is different. You need to have posts down there for it to slide down on. I put 2 bolts in from the bottom of the threaded holes so they stick up and then slide the light down on them. The plug is different too so you need to cut off one side. I put in an HID kit at the same time so the wires are all different now.

It costs me 150. Its brand new.

Had to check this out myself as I still didn't understand what it meant.

I tried to start it to ride to work from my lunch break... and snapped the throttle cable...

Time to visit my friendly, neighborhood gougers - I mean dealership - for parts.

Attempted to install a STR Air Fuel Needle, couldn't get it to thread. Luckily I was able to get the old needle back in. I used motion pro tool #08-0181, didn't need to rotate the carb. I will try the needle again sometime in the future

I just bought a "new to me" 05 that was completely stock. This weekend I did the grey wire, shortened the throttle stop, worked on the accelerator pump timing, put a PMB insert and JD jet kit in. It was after dark and about 33 degrees when I finished but I had to take it down the road................HOLY CRAP!!!!! The difference is absolutely amazing. I can't wait until it warms up so I can really spend some time on it :moon:

Took the 450 out on the trails to find out why a particular female friend hadn't come back in a few minutes after taking off for a first time ride (in a number of years) on my kid's TTR125LE. Gotta love the: "I'll be walking next to you while you ride around the yard getting used to the bike." Except that she takes off down a trail in 1st gear with the throttle cranked a hella lot faster than I can run haha! Mostly from panic and going to fast to turn and forgetting about the rear brake or kill switch. ('course that sounds like me on my first minibike ride...) :moon:

Today's moral: As much as ya love 'em, let someone else train them! :cheers:

      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!
