I am having no problems with my YZ450

Sigh.

With all the troubles I haven't had with my 07, all I can do is ride it!!!!:thumbsup:

My 07 keeps going through tires..I hate changing them and dont want to pay the shop to do it..Damn, life sucks:p

i have an 04 yz450f and it has needed nothing since i got it... oil, airfilter, occasional chain and sprocket sets

still original valves, suspension, jetting, and even sparkplug

-time to get the suspension done though

my gosh darn 07 keeps getting me in trouble with the girlfriend, its never broken so whenever the guys call to go for a ride I don't have an excuse not to.

No problems with my 04, 06 or 08 YZ450F. The valves were checked but never needed shimming.

its a yamaha it aint gona break

the only problem i have had with my 06 was that the rear hub broke, which was pretty painful as i smacked into the face of one double after landing the first double when it broke.. yamaha covered the parts so that was cool, didn't help MY parts feel any better. but other than that no other problems...

I've had the same problem with my '01 and my '03. The damn front wheel just won't stay on the ground. The darn thing just lifts right off the ground while riding. Irritating as hell. :busted:

Otherwise they have been absolutely trouble free. :thumbsup::busted:

so how about the yz250f?

1. Prematurely worn rear tires.

2. Constant accumulation of mud under rear fender.

3. Continuous crack like obsession to be on it.

4. Semi broken relationship with spouse (related to problem 3).

5. A broken clutch lever (decided to fall while leaning on stand).

6. Causes neck pain on occassion.

7. Front wheel levitation.

8. Slings dirt clods on other riders.

9. Shock bladder.

Why do I put up with this crap?

I've been beating my 06 up ever since I bought it last year, including a few crashes that had me hurting a lot more than the bike, and it still runs like the day i brought it home. I've only had to replace the fork seals, chain and sprockets.

Got an 01' 426 used 2 months ago, no idea how many total hrs, but I've put on over 30hrs so far anyway. No probs so far. I'm glad to hear they are good machines, usually can't go wrong with a Yami! Checked the valves, looks great in there!

Been riding since I was about 9, that would be about 26 years ago! grew up on 2 strokes, but I'm loving this 4 stroke beast!

I haven't had a problem with my '04 in weeks, but that is because I am still waiting on the clutch arm bearing to finish the total rebuild after trashing the tranny and case! I would guess 300 hours on it before it crapped out though. You guys are either lucky or not riding hard enough:p

so far so good ::knock on wood::

took me a year to check the valves on my 07, but when I did they were perfect. bike has about 60 hours on original top end. I have a little play in my rear linkage....probably due to me not taking it apart and regreasing when brand new.

Problems with my '00 426, it has ran so well and needed nothing that my wife wouldn't let me buy a new MX bike for 8 yrs, everytime she asks whats wrong with the old one I have to say nothing, not that I didn't try for over 500 hrs of use to deserve or need a new one. Mike

I have an 06 yz450 and at 40hrs I had 1 exhaust valve tighten on me. Now at 65hrs I just purchased a new clutch kit but still runs great.

After about 150+ hrs on my 2006 yz450f, I just replaced the original clutch today. Other than that, it eats tires and occasionally a chain and sprocket. No complaints here! :busted::thumbsup:

That's weird. I got over 180 hours on my 06 and just fried the clutch. I work

the hell out of it, too.

It's a good thing that they rarely, if ever, need any major work because the Al framed bikes are PIA to work on... :thumbsup:

And Wiz's bike needs no work which cannot be said for the fences he keeps hitting with it:busted:
