  • more e-xtra h=POWER motocross 2NASA 2T:-):-):-) YAMAHA250

  • More power is not the key to offroad (in areas of tight enduro and hard enduro).... More power makes you even apply your breaks often and saps away your energy the most in controlling the bike than concentrating on your balance when you hit the rough stuff....

    The keys are: softer than the usual MX-intended suspension, good tires, a better low-end bike but that can also be addressed by the Rekluse clutch as it auto-prevents the bike from stalling in extreme stuff, clutch control especially if you're using the standard cable clutch OEM, and a trials-riding background, the latter if you want to be one of the best in this area.... So what are you missing guys LOL! :D ....i verily know what i don't have

Motorcycle riding is very similar to meditation and if a person hasn't done either, they won't know. When I ride fast I am doing something that is potentially very dangerous and is also a calculated risk. But I have all my faculties focused on one point of concentration, and that allows no other thought to enter my head. Which in itself, over a period of time, cleanses and purifies me. And when I finally I stop and think about it, for me, that's exactly what happens. It is just that simple.

  • Well, Gunther....that is a good story. First the sunscreen on the inside top of the faceshield is that "static-cling" suncreen material that you can buy at the auto parts store to put in the window of your car to keep the sun off of the baby's car seat!! I used masking tape on the front of the shield to get a straight line for the bottom edge, then trimmed the top by following the top edge of the shield with a new, sharp razor blade. The "Yamaha Racing" sticker was an Ebay thing....again careful measured and centered and using masking tape as a guide. I think it turned out well. Good Luck!!!

The tank on my 80 IT425 is badly cracked up and I can t find one anywhere — Enduro Yamaha IT Series

The tank on my '80 IT425 is badly cracked up and I can't find one anywhere. Is there a tank of any of the other IT's that would fit and look the same as mine? I've seen a few pics of other IT's that looks like it could fit, but I'm not sure.

%d comments
  • Bob I'm located in South Africa. If you're willing to sort out the paperwork for shipping to here drop me a pm with the details and we could negotiate? That's the problem I have with my IT. Rear shock is located in the frame under the seat and tank. The front mount is just behind my handlebars so the frame is quite wide. So no tank I can find can go over the wide frame.

  • This is the Clarke tank that came with my 1980 IT425G. Insanely ugly and holds way too much fuel, however it's narrow at the seat junction and doesn't get in the way. I still think you are better off buying a used original tank from the list I posted earlier.

  • Here is my 425G with a Clarke IT175D E F tank loosely fitted. The forward tank brackets are way off, but new items could easily be fabricated. Much smaller than the stock 425 item, but as you can see, it fits nicely against the seat.

    Alright guys I'm having Hero 4 issues. I went for a ride as dusk and got back after dark. I was shooting 4K S which is 24fps I believe. Anyways the day time video was stunning as usual but the night time video was god awful. It was grainy and pixaly and just not good. Is there anyway I can make the night time shooting better on the Hero 4 Black. Take a look at the pictures and you'll see the huge difference.

      • I'm not gonna bite your head off about anything. I'm just gonna offer my opinion. I've earned that right having been riding for 36+ years. I personally don't think a turbo is the answer. A set of cams, port and polish the heads, intake and throttle body, fuel controller, and exhaust is all you need. Done right, could be over into the triple digits on horsepower. I don't think it's really built to handle very much more. If you feel it's not enough, then sell it and go bigger.

      Well people. Got the 70 cc malossi done today. Very easy. Very very easy — Yamaha C3

      Well people. Got the 70 cc malossi done today. Very easy. Very very easy. The tuner is a few minutes to hook up, even less to calibrate and set up. Power is amazing. She takes off upto 35mph faster than my 50 cc 2 stroke aprilia(stock, except washer removed). Hill power, I live in ct, no flat land around and live out in the country, speedometer stays buried the entire ride around here now. It used to drop on the hills to about 33mph. No, speedo stays buried. We have maybe 40 miles on it so far. The temp light has been coming and going, but I didn't purge the air system like I would've if this job was done on a car, probably air pockets moving around. So far, very happy with this. We r getting ready to put this same kit on 14 zuma. Well worth the 289$$

      • Just multiply your foot pounds by 12...i.e. 8 ft lbs of torque that you tighten the transmission cover bolts to to keep from destroying an expensive gasket, is 96 inch pounds

      • The tuner has 3 settings, big bore, big bore and exhaust, big bore exhaust and intake. Then 3 more small potentiometers so u can fine tune it all. I just set it to factory only big bore.

      • So here's my after test ride review. First off install was a breeze. All in all it's exactly what I wanted and expected. Sounds great at idle, going through all gears and at cruising speed. Loudness is a difference of opinion from rider to rider. I'd say they're loud but not obnoxious. If you get on it hard going through the gears that's when i'd say it has a nice loud "snap" to them. At low to mid rpm cruising speed they have a beautiful throaty rumble. I do notice a flatness to my performance now. With stock exhaust when you snap the throttle the bike would get up and go. Now it's a bit flat and it seems you have to roll on more to get into a nice rpm range. This is to be expected as the bike certainly needs a re-flash and intake. Definitely wants more air/fuel. That being said the bike does run much smoother and I was pleasantly surprised to see I had almost no back pop on decel. It was a toss up between theses and the Bassani sweepers but in the end I liked the look of the lines on the VH better as well as the chrome tips. So...there you have it.

      • Well done. Xxx

      • It's an amazing sound for a 950! I love mine, bought the bolt new from the dealer with twin slash fitted. Don't know it any other way.

      Here's my 1986 IT200 that I restored in the guest bedroom of my duplex (yeah I was single then). This was a great machine! The few minor mods I installed were: Uni filter, Boyesen reeds, Barnett clutch, DG pipe & silencer, Progressive fork springs, and the rear shock rebuilt and revalved by Noleen Racing.

      I also had a 1991 KDX200 at the time, and the IT could out-drag it every time (stock KDX). This bike was a blast to ride!

      %d comments
      • I had reeds and a DG pipe on my 86 IT200, but I did find my brothers KDX200 had a little more grunt, in reality performance was pretty similar the IT a bit better in the tight stuff though. Also better plastics and attention to detail out of the box.

      • The IT and the KDX were geared quite a bit differently. I just remember how light the yamaha was and how fun the suspension made the bike to ride. I now have an '82 IT250 project bike that needs a complete restoration...

      • Once modified, my KDX200 would eat the IT in every regard, even some stock 250 MXr's. They're in a very mild state of tune stock, but are easily made fast.

      Hi all. New to the group. I joined as I have a question. This is my 01 Yz250 was a great bike but, out riding one day and the WHOLE motor took a shit, this is the worst blowup of a two stroke I've every seen. When the crank bearings spun out the crank hit the inside of the cylinder, snapped the front drop ear off and then crank came back down and cracked the case. Anyway long story short. Found a decent shape 99 motor and I'm wondering, will it bolt right up or what?

      %d comments
      • 800 and 1000. And there complete running bikes still. At work be home around 5ish if ya want too talk about them.

      • It will bolt right up...99-present is same case pattern. The 99 jug had different port timing ,and imo was a little bit less power. But will interchange. It didn't have a tps on carb(the 99).as lomg as u jet the 01 carb for the 99 it will be fine. I know the 99" came with a #80 power jet and a 172 main and then in 00" they went to a #55 power jet and a 175main, both had same pilot jet size.

      • Well technically the 99 is a special left side case . I broke a 99 left side case thus i know...But bolting 99 engine in 01 frame. Yes that will bolt right up.

        But I would get the 01 from Ross because the 99 left sidecase ( if u jump ur chain and wack it that side costs 800 $ just for that side.. vs a 00 or newr case is only 200 $.

      • I've been riding for 30 years, and Michelin's line of pilot road tires, 2's 3's and fours are the best road tires I've ever used. Best wear, best traction, not bad on the track either. I enjoy fast corners and dropping a knee. When it comes to my safety I don't get the cheapest parts. There have been at least 2 times this year I've made the mistake of coming into a corner too hot. I prepared to ditch the bike but the pr 4s held when I didn't think any tire would have.
