Hi, everything you can and will do would be awesome. Have you weighed the spare flywheel yet?

My all original still in brand new condition 2003 yz450f. The bike has been broken in only (3 tanks of fuel) and never seen action. I also have the Motocross Action Magazines showing " The First Ever Yamaha 450 Test" from November 2002 and the follow up February 2003 magazine also praising the 2003 YZ450, along with the Title for the bike all in plastic addressed to me as per mag subscription. This bike is a true Survivor and a benchmark in MX History.

Damm no wonder I could not find a WR thread when searching...3 year old thread with only a couple thousand views...I guess there are not a lot of yz/wr owners here...Oh well..
Looking through my owners manual and dammm, oil changes will no longer take 5 minute huh.??..waiting for my skidplate to take a real ride but screwing around a little last Sat and this thing feels great..

Maybe not 5 minutes, but I have only removed the screen from the frame a couple of times and I have never found anything in it. You can save a lot of time and mess by not doing removing it.

For the frame drain I use a metal coffee can to catch the oil.

Hey guy's I got a friend who has 2 bikes that has sat parked for 4 yrs. The KTM won't crank and leaks gas if we cut the gas on (in process of cleaning it) and the YZ450 (bought brand new when they parked it) leaks gas but will fire up but continues leaking gas and if choke goes of it shuts down. Could it be that it just needs the carb cleaned as well?

Yep....I would bet a good carb cleaning will do the trick.

I replaced my needle and seat in my carb recently[the part that works the float assembly] because my bike sat for a few months waiting for parts..it spewed out gas and was hard to start..rejetted also with jd jetting kit -now it works fine. i recommend a fuel filter [inline]and to drain the float bowl [allen bolt] to drain out any excess fuel while it sits due to the small pilot jets etc..yeah, the carbs are a bitch on these bikes until they are cleaned up...

After Blbiker having his YZ for the past year and riding it a couple of times, I simply couldn't resist any longer. I found a 2001 up in Denver in great shape and pulled the trigger.





And my first ride up Captain Jacks, proved the bike to be everything I was expecting. I love this bike!!!

Thankfully the bike came with a WR pipe and some sort of aftermarket performance tip that makes it legal on the dB sound restrictions and spark arrestor.








The only work and changes to the bike is my additional of fat bar risers and tall, ATV bend bars to accomidate my 6'4" height.

Awesome thread

Nice work on these powerhouse bikes, guys. I went through a similar process with my '01 WR426. Even at that age, if they're in good shape, they will smoke most other bikes in their class.
