2006 yfz 450se partial winter build

so i decided to do a partial build on the 06. Stripped the bike of all plastics and took the head and cylinder off this evening, (was getting some small signs of anti freeze in the oil). Inspected everything, cams look great, head looks great, cylinder has some minor signs of wear but for a 10yr old stock engine it looked much better than i was anticipating. Im looking for a reputable shop to do a port/polish on the head, install new seals on the valves etc. I'm down between baldwin, and a local shop, with some prior research on the forum maad has a great rep, but haven't heard back from them yet so i won't be going with them. I can't seem to find anything about checking the crank and bearings without removing, is there any way i can check the crank bearings without splitting the cases? For the build I'm looking at doing the head work, houser a arms with stainless lines, fox floats, new header, some pc, new steering stem, aftermarket accelerator pump, and after market water pump and seals. Absolutely pumped to get into the bike some more, since i bought it last year i did the oil mod, replaced all the plastic with oem, dwt g2 beads with kenda kutters, cycra pro hand guards, houser sprocket guard and brake disk guard, tusk axle and nerfs, pro taper bars. Ive been trying to post some pics, but i can't get the image resized enough to upload, as soon as i get it straightened out they will be up!

06 SE
gytr slip on, kn filter, oil mod, dwt beadlocks with kenda kutters, pro taper bars, cycra guards, cfm oversized oil tank, tusk axle, tusk nerfs, asv levers....

Well, found a local shop, 250 for a p/p, inspection of the valves, cams, re-shim, 300 for a vertex 12.1 top end piston kit, and some other misc gaskets and seals I'm going to replace while its down.... total damage..... 800 bucks, not to bad, half of what most of the other quotes were, just hope the work comes out decently.

Well that work is deff cheap and reliable. I figured if something happened it would be easier for me to go to a local business, than deal with it on the phone or through emails.

I mean if you don't mind paying for the same thing twice.
But in the business we call that ******* tax.

On a ten year old motor doing a top end is pointless if you do not do a crank and all the other bearings. It will have to come apart again when the bearings go. In these motors unless you do terrible filter maintenance and have sand and dust getting to the rings and piston the piston and rings is usually the last thing to go.


Spend once cry once.


Same thing goes with the port and polishing.

Well the port and polishing he's going to be doing is basically just removing any of the casting "debris" on the head and some minor work on the exhaust and intake ports. It's deff not a full blown job like you get when you send it out to one of the bigger guys. During my teardown I was able to check the lateral play between the connecting rod and the crankshaft and got .010" well within yamahas spec range (.0059-.017). I will be taking both side cases off to do some further work and will deff be taking a better look at the bottom end.

The cylinder actually showed the most wear. It's being sent out to be replated.

Well I figured if the connecting rod was straight shaft bearing failure won't do nearly as much damage as the connecting rod, and doing oil changes every other weekend and cutting the filter, I'd hope I'd see the signs first. But it's subject to change as soon as I remove the side cases. Never know what you'll find haha

Bearings are hardened they will never leave shavings or specks of metal in the oil filter. Just because its in spec doesn't mean shit. My first motor in my 05 seized and was rebuilt well before the 6 month warrenty expired. I garentee it was "in spec".


You should listen to what people are saying. "figuring" its ok is not the way to do things. But so far since you don't want to. Good luck.

When you did the oil mod, did you check the bearings?
