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!
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....
