Default 2018 tech tips and tricks.

Figured I would get this going.
Enough 2018 GasGas' out there for a one stop tech tips and tricks location.
Please add your experiences.

I just add the X-Trig preload adjuster to my '18. Works really well.
The YZ part fit right up with no issues at all. 07-09 YZ250F/450

XTrig part # 10200002

Default 2018 tech tips and tricks.

Shove some foam in your tank bolt hole to prevent it from filling with mud.


Be sure to monitor the sub-frame bolts, they tend to loosen up.

The clutch cover is paper thin and will crack on the slightest hit. Rekluse makes a nice replacement that comes with a different brake pedal tip too.


Larger battery cables will solve your starting problems.

The SXS skid plate for these bikes is sweet!


Be sure to check your spokes for the first 10-15 hours. I have tightened mine 3-4 times now.

Any chance you can let us in on what part # that is? There are four different Yamaha parts on the Xtrig website.

Glad I asked! I would have assumed part # 10200005 since it fits the Yamaha 2018 bikes. I see the 10200002 part is for the 07-09 bikes. I wonder why that is?
Worthwile Mod?

Auto retract side stand delete.

Use KTM bushing (part #78003023080) and bolt (part #0019080266S)
The bolt will need to have the threads extended another 5mm.
The bushing does come with the necessary o-rings.

This applies to the '18 bikes also.
Tech tip.
Issue: How to tighten lock nut on power valve adjuster.
Solution: Purchase a MAC Tools S166 (6mm+7mm) brake bleeder wrench.
Cut the wrench to 3" total length to clear the pipe and clutch cover. Use the 6mm end for the adjuster nut.

The shock body determines what preload adjuster you need.
The GasGas' have the 48mm body.

It's worth it in my opinion. Using a punch was a tedious process and beats the crap out of the adjuster rings.
Shock does not need to be disassembled, or need a spring compressor.
Just back the preload adjuster rings all the way loose.
