I believe they will mate up, but I don't believe the RMZ450 head will have the same sensor connections. I could be wrong. I know for a fact that an LTR450 cylinder and head will work with an RMZ450 bottom end.

(+)
-Width
-Power
-responds well to simple mods
-ergonomics i feel are the best
-Quick removal of plastics
-engine disassembly is a breeze, I love how the cylinder head and cylinder come off at the same time with only 4 bolts, not including the 2 little 8mm side bolts.
-Best bang for the buck
-The design of the plastics has a one of a kind aggressive look that can not be mistaken for anything but an LT-R (Aside from the new Z400, haven't seen any in person yet though.) As well as the color options available.

(-)
-No grease zerks on moving parts
-PITA fuel line clips running from FI system to gas tank
-Fuel pump in the way of Cam chain tensioner and clutch arm
-Battery box location (Could have put infront of radiator up under the plastics)
-I like the center exhaust location, but I would have been perfectly fine with a side mounted exhaust and the battery under the seat.
-The weight of this thing, I think it is the heaviest 450, especially the front
-Cramped air box
-Cramped everything around the engine, seems you always have to remove something to work on something, which is not so much the case on a Honda.

Honda/Yamaha/Suzuki all run there high performance engines before installing them from low RPM to high RPM. So it really does not matter what you do.

If you did the rebuild yourself, and did not get the cylinder re-honed, I would take it a little easy until the new rings seat properly, if you rebuilt it yourself, and had it honed to manufacturers specs, not a generic hone, then you can immediately rip on it.

This is a sticky in the tips and tricks section. Most of your questions will probably already be answered on here or LTRHQ.

Well I already have yellow plastics so I can't really justify buying a whole other set. I just need the front full fenders because I am switching from MX to XC racing. I will give you 60 plus shipping for just the front clip if you change your mind.

That is not mine, that is my cousins TRX450r motor, with the engine built by modded motorsports and V&M racing engines. He races A class.

Something similar happened to my cousins race ready 450r last weekend. His exhaust valves snapped off also. He reasoned that it was just because they were old and he was running a 13.5:1 piston on U4.





Was your timing spot on when you reassembled? Are you running a high grind cam?

Nah those weren't the same pics, these are though, and I replied to your PM over on the HQ bro.







Next on the list is a CCP steering stabilizer, works triple rate spring conversion for front shocks, and possibly a kick start kit.

I would check your valve clearances for peace of mind, if they aren''t in spec, that's most likely your problem. If they are in spec, turn your idle screw a few times to make it idle a little quicker.


Also about how many hours is on it so far? Have you checked the swirl fuel filter under the tank? Could be clogged up.

Make sure the Mobil 1 you use is the motorcycle 4T racing oil. DO NOT use regular automobile oil as it is bad for your wet clutch.

If your not racing, every 20 hours is pretty good. As Caleb said, crankcase oil and tank oil is the same oil. 1.3 quarts in the tank if you do not change the oil filter, 1.4 quarts in the tank if you do change the oil filter, and always put .4 quarts in the crank case. Just keep an eye on the spark plug, check it a few times a year, check for abnormal corrosion and make sure the cathode and diode are intact.

You also need to check (and adjust if need be) your valves regularly, as our titanium valves are very sensible and need a lot of looking after. This way you stay on top of things, prevent disaster, and keep your performance.

Are you trying to stay as close as possible to stock gearing with only dropping 1 tooth in the rear as you raise the tire diameter by 1 inch? I honestly don't think you would be disappointed at all with a 13T front sprocket, they are great with 19 or 20 inch rears, and it allots more room around your case so if something were to happen, you would have a little bit better chance. If you don't have a case saver yet I'd definitely put that on the list.

Put your Z400 hubs on your LTR, it will narrow up the rear a bit believe it or not.

Just make sure your dip stick reading is correct now, it will spread throughout, but the way you didn't isn't the best way of going about it. When you put the dip stick in to see where the level is at, do not screw it in, simply dip the stick in and pull it out, thats how you get the correct reading. Always keep an empty quart oil bottle, so you can use the clear line on the side for measurements.




Think with ya dipstick.....JIMMY!!
