2005 Yamaha YFZ 450 need more power

Recommended Posts



Welcome to the site. have you considered aftermarket CDI? Are you looking to tearing into the motor? You can always change cams with a higher compression piston. How fat is your wallet?

The CDI box is what controls your ignition. A good aftermarket box will increase you ignition curve for better throttle response and they usually increase the rev limiter. Still within safe running limits and will add a few mph.

Depends on what kind of power you want. Do the 'cam mod' it's free. Pop the air box lid off if you already haven't. Those and the pipe and filter you put on will give you decent power.

There are tons of other things depending on what you want, like different sprockets, FCI air intake, big bores, etc.

Rotate the exhaust cam 1 tooth clockwise. Basically turns the motor in to the dirt bike engine. I should have checked my valves when I had it all apart, so it's a perfect time to check them when this mod is done.

Turns it in to the yz450f cam timing giving it more power in the mid & upper range. Just gives the motor a little more pop.

Some poeple think the motor doesn't run as hot after doing it either, but I'm not sure if there is any truth to that or not.

I've ran the cam mod since late 2005 and I love it. It does more than the aftermarket Hot Cams they sell for our bikes. Only other way to get power from the cams it to send yours out to WEB Cams

      I just got a 1991 Yamaha Moto 4 for my son and I am looking for a service repair manual. I know that the timing chain needs replaced.
