I just moved over from a DRZ to a 2009 WR450. I'm pretty excited to get this thing going.
I brought my DRZ down from New York to here in Central America 3 years ago, and it served me well and it took me all over this country. After a while I realized I wanted a more fun trail bike. Unfortunately your average WR goes for more than $5k. So then I found this one. It was in an accident and needs some work. It's been molested by many hack mechanics and hasn't been cared for that well. To make matters worse, while it sat it was pillaged. I did get it cheap for down here, the only problem is parts. I basically have to import them all. So it's almost like a bit of a treasure hunt.
So; I'm excited to get it going. The trails down here are epic.
I know as well many of you have stock piles of spares. If you want to sell them, get rid of them, or know someone that has send me a pm.
Some of the big parts I need are:
Water pump cover, impeller, stator cover, levers, shifter rod & shifter, front caliper's bajo bolt, caliper hardware, rear rotor and lots more. Hit me up if you have parts for sale.
Here's some of the pics, starting with my old DRZ, how I bought it and it how the bike stands
I'll post up the progress as the parts roll in.
