Moved to NC 2 months ago, so far it's been great!  Love the red clay!

It was great!  I enjoyed it more than MEC myself.

Thanks!  Bummed I'm not going to be there in person this year.

MX tech talk / Re: YZ125 56 mm piston?

Go 57mm bore (139cc), the 56mm feels more torquey down low but the 57mm make the engine feel so much faster everywhere!  The 144 kit feels super torquey with no top end and vibrates, the 139 feels much faster than the 144, except at very low RPM.  Don't forget you need to machine the power valves and head for the larger bore.  Millennium is good but I'd go with the best:

A solid stock of F-bombs, beer and band-aids help too if you dont have a good tire changer stand.
I have everything but I'll have to check on the band-aids.

Anyone ever do it?  I heard it is pretty difficult.  I have 4 tire irons and a stand, do I need a second person?

MX tech talk / Re: Which oil?
« on: May 11, 2017, 10:37:34 AM »
What oil is everyone running in a 450?  I have a 2016 KX 450 and have been running the Motul 300V 10w40.

Just curious to see what brand and weight folks are running.

Same, in the engine side.

Mitutoyo or Starrett are very good, Mahr is decent.   I wouldn't get a Fowler.

I may have an extra spline gear for a 2014 but unfortunately it is next to impossible to replace without damaging the basket.

30-50 hours is what I would recommend, but I do mine 20-30 hours on a 450 or every other valve check/adjustment.  And replace the cam chain also.

MX tech talk / Re: 2009 Kx450 fuel pump question
« on: February 04, 2015, 07:51:00 PM »
I have (2) 09 KX450's and your right fuel filter is built into the pump. You can take it apart and half ass clean it but you can't take it off and clean it properly. At least I couldn't. Sometimes I got away with soaking and cleaning the best I could while attached to the pump but I've had to buy the complete fuel pump ass'y before too. Sucks because they're pricy. btw the YZ's are the same. I think they all are. They need an aftermarket product to change out the filters instead of making us buy the whole fuel pump when the filter gets too dirty.
Honda's have an easily replaceable fuel filter on the pump, I assumed they all did.

I have 1/4" inch pound (Matco), and 3/8" foot pound (Craftsman) that covers most everything I need.  I had the calibration checked on both about 2-3 years ago and both were good after about 10 years of use.

Motostuff rotor works awesome!

solid mount isn't the best.

Never said it was...

I never used the Motostuff rotor but heard most pro riders like it better than floating.  I have tried both galfer and braking and the custom one I have now, they all worked the same to me.

Iron bores run hotter and the steel expands at a different rates, nickel silicon carbide coatings are porous to hold oil better.
