these guys are right, this is not anyone's issue to "fix" except you
if your chain was adjusted properly, and maintained, it would not have failed
please use your head before insulting one brand over another, especially if that brand is blue!
I have a Suzuki in my garage that throws chains like crazy, and yes, the case broke once too
it is very obvious you are pissed, but, you need to direct it somehow in in a more healthy way
if you are just a closet Honda fan, go buy one
if you are just pissed because you thought you could buy a YFZ and never have to maintain it, you were wrong
the YFZ is arguably the best 450 around, BUT it is not maintenance free
might I suggest a nice Kawasaki Prairie?
I have personally bought a handful of broken YFZ's from kids that bought them thinking they could just ride them and never even check the oil, or maintain their chain.
so.. is yours for sale?
ok.. now you have had your ass chewed
We all feel your pain, really..
there is not one of us here that hasn't made some "bone head" mistake that cost us some ride time or a bunch of money (or both)
take a deep breath..
weigh out your options, and move forward with that plan
we are here if you need help
but if you would like to bitch about how Yamaha is junk, then you will get torn up
we all love Yamaha, and we will defend it
