Hello all, so after a long drive i went and picked up a plated WR450F that had been sitting for about 5 years under a tarp in some guys back yard

i went and loaded it up and droped it off at my friend to re-jet the carb and clean it out (it had wayyyyyy old gas) so, while its at the spa i thought i would get some upgrades for it

 

i went ahead and picked up a trail tech vapor, trail tech mount, new plastics,and new hardware,

Mount

Vapor Trail

does anyone here have the trail tech indicator dash installed? if so please give me your feedback!!! is it worth it?

is this setup a good fit? or should i look at a diffrent mount? this  is how it sits now,

from sitting outside alot of the buttons on the bar have become very brittle and have broken off, what kit would you recomend?

Because im getting new plastics i figured id upgrade all the lighting and signals to a more streemlined look, here is how the rear sits now20141230_093410_zpscfb7b602.jpg

 

Sorry for the flood of pics, i don't normally post on fourms of anykind, but id like it fix this bike up and hopefully meet some cool people to go riding with, any help would be appreciated

Thanks in Advance!

I would NOT spend all that money on the visible stuff first.

 

I would upgrade the carb to 2008 specs, verify the carb condition and jetting, lube all the cables, adjust the valves, buy a half-dozen air cleaners and a case or two of oil and filters, tires, 

get the suspension serviced and sprung to your weight.

 

Then ride it.

ok, are the 2008 carb a whole new unit? would i have to take it to a dealer to have it resprung? or is it like my ford where i can ajust it with a screwdriver?

I have an 06 that I'm in the middle of installing the trail tech vapor with the indicator cluster. Fits perfectly

I sent my full suspension off to a pro for a full rebuild (and internally shorten it)

You just update the carb accelerator pump to 2008 specs so it won't 'flame-out' stall, and set your rear sag to see if you springs are too soft or too stiff.

Crummy pic, but here is the tail light setup I was telling you about.

It's a radiantz license plate frame that I put radiantz red leds on for running, brake and signals. Basically like the $110 kit they sell but my own version I made (all red leds). The brake light is some cheap junk light. All on a YZ fender.

(I originally ordered the $110 kit, but returned it as it was not up to par. Led strips all crooked). Made my own for about $40 cheaper.

If you can solder good you can build the license plate frame yourself and save about $40


Unfortunately I'm not close, I'm in Texas.

I'll try and get a better pic for you.

Also those tires were Shinko something's. Took em off a couple weeks ago for a more aggressive off road but DOT tire. They're for sale :-)
Damn near no wear.

Angle in top pick is off a good bit. It was sitting wrong on the stand so the rear is lower.

I woke up about 4am today to finish wiring in the vapor and indicators.

Finally figured out how to add a neutral light that works good.

Now having issues with the coolant and speed sense....

One of the brightest tail lights I've tried, which has both low light, bright light and white plate light (you know to make it road legal) is this one;

and because most ask.. here's what I used for the rear turn signals;

Here's what it looks like installed;
