450 motors

all of the mount or just certain ones?

You would have to see how the motor fits in the frame. You would then find where the motor mounts on the motor are and then weld some tabs to mount that motor to the frame. I've seen plenty of people do it with the CRs so I don't know why the Yammies wouldn't work.

OK i have a 06 yfz450 motor that has a hole in the bottom end by the shifter shaft and i know 04-05 yfz has 11:9.1 comp and the 06-08 have 11:4.1 if i where to use a 04-05 bottom and and mate it with my 06 head and use my 06 piston would i get the 11:9.1 comp or would i have to use the 04-05 piston?

good question!! i think the bore, stroke and head are the same, i think it was a piston change.. not for sure tho. let me know what you find out its something besides the piston. just get an R6 motor if you have to modify motor mounts:biggrin:

i has to be something in the bottom end like the crank or piston b/c 04-05 yfz have 11:9.1 comp. with only a 439cc and the 06-08 have 11:4.1 with a 449cc. And the only thing i can think of is its either the crank or the piston

Nothing should coming flying out. Lay it on it's side. It may sound like a pain but get a digital camera and take pics step by step. If you get lost anywhere you can just refer back to the photos.

The big deal is you have to remove a bunch of stuff just to split the case i think, like removing the a.c. magneto, clutch and some other stuff ect.

I got the whole engine apart,really easy if you have the smarts it isnt that hard. Ill post pics sometime soon of the engine apart and ill post more as i put everything back together

I only ran into 1 problem the bearing on the balancer one of the bearings is missing and it got chewed up in the motor i found all peices and blew them out and cleaned everything really good, im just wondering if i should get a new bearing because its only 1 small bearing that missing its like 1/4 inch long and 1/8 inch round
