I have a 06 rmz 450 and it is geting hard to kick whay is that

Chances are you need to do a complete tune up. This means a new spark plug, cleaning the carb, new air filter and new piston rings. I would also re-seat the valves. Any further top end work ( replacing valves, bore cylinder and new piston ) is entirely based on what is found after tearing into the head.

How do you set the timing chain on a 2006 yamaha yfz 450

1st set piston at top dead center, which is the top of its travel. after you have verified top dead center, and you are 100% sure its at top dead, install the cams. first the exhaust cam, with you facing the sprockets, with the cam lobes facing up and away, about the 10 o clock position. once set there, you should see a refrence on the sprocket, with lines that will be parallel with the cyl. head surface. then install the intake cam, with lobes facing in the 2 o clock position. once again, you will see refrence marks on the cam sprocket that should be level with the cyl. head surface. after the cam caps are installed, and the cam chain tensioner, turn the engine with the flywheel bolt to verify you have no piston valve contact. after you turn over a few times, recheck timing.

I just checked my valve clearence and adjusted my cam chain with the cam chain tensioner while the piston was at top dead center on its compression stroke. when I put everything back together it ran fine...

I put my piston to toop dead center and readjusted my cam chain and it seems to be running fine. The only thing I had to do was to turn the idle up a notch which still kind of gets me....but it's better now.

How much oil to put in rmz 450 05 model after draining oil and replacing oil filter

hi mate,, if u dont have a dip stick on the filler cap,,or a spy window on the engine casing,, it should still give u a number on the casing by the filler cap for the oil,,ie,it will either say 3000ml,,or 2500ml which means 3litres or 2 and a half litres,, always add just under a half a litre of oil if u have changed the oil filter,

Still need advice

Turn crank so that timing mark on front pulley is at 0 degrees.
Remove the timing cover and you should see a mark for the cam to line up with.
You want the cam lobes on No.1 cylinder to be pointing away from the followers wether they be rockers above cam or buckets below. This will be the compression stroke.
Once the cam timing is set you can recheck the distributor. It should point to No.1.
