New member and bike
Posted February 19, 2005 - 01:16 PM
I'm a new member (been browsing the boards for a while) and I've just picked up my 2002 426 today.
First impressions are very good, much more powerfull than my XR400 and I'm sure it will also make a great supermoto. Here is a link to some pictures of it.
I couldn't resist loosely bolting up the supermoto wheels I've got lined up for it. I'm sure you'll agree you need to go a long way to find a better looking dirt bike than the WR.

Looks like the work starts already! my head bearings are notchy so they will need some attention and I seem to have the old constant throttle misfire. I'm going to have a play around with the TPS and see if unplugging it fixes the problem. If it does I'm thinking of fitting a switch to the handlebars to enable/disable it whilst on the move.
Does anyone know if I am ok going to my local bearing supplier rather than the dealer for head bearings? I know Honda did some extra machining on some headbearings which made the numbers printed on them completely irrelevant.
Chris, the idea for these wheels came from http://www.supermota...z/craigswr.html (shameless ripoff). I wasn't able to get hold of any CBR250RR wheels because this bike was never officially imported into the UK (It was into Oz I believe) and it wasn't very popular as a grey import. The ones I have are from an NSR250R and I'm hoping they are the same. The other parts that he lists I have been able to get hold of no problem. I'll take loads of pictures during the conversion, write a webpage and post a link.
Any other Qs just give us a shout
