WR400 nightmare motor
Posted July 14, 2005 - 09:15 AM
Yamaha wants around 700$ for a complete cylinder head. Not cheap, but not bad considering what my KLX parts cost me.
What causes sand to get sucked into these bikes so I can avoid this happening under my ownership? Should I look into another motor?
The oil tank in the frame was all full of black goop also, and several rinses with solvent and compressed air havent cleared it. Anyone have ideas on how to clean this thing out?

that crotchrocket.com place had pretty good prices. with them I get 609$ complete for the head.
I guess Ill re-route that breather hose in behind the air filter so this doesnt happen again. ugh.

Most of the miles are off-road....on road miles are only from connecting trails. I avereage 1200 miles a year....my bike is a '99 and I'm the original proud owner.
