Off to the Dark (orange) side; WR450 is sold!

In any case, if any of you are looking, I'm selling a LOT of my extra stuff. Rekluse, extra front and rear wheels, FMF header, 2 FMF mufflers, Barnum air cover, Quickshot, and a crapload of extra parts (oil filters, spark plugs, etc).
Drop on in if you're interested in any of it:
And THANKS to all of you for all the help with the WR; I"ve gotta say Indy's jetting spreadsheet was invaluable!

The only thing I'd say to watch are the fork seals. Keep them cleaned out.

Blue; not sure why the terse reply???? I love the Yamahas, and I'm sure I'll own another soon. My post did not trash or demean the WR in any way; as I"m quite fond of it still. It just didn't fit ME.

I need to get rid of the blue parts for money! I told the old lady no more than 2 bikes in the garage at one time, and this made three, at least for a short time!

Either that or a TM300.
If I bought a new bike tomorrow that would be the bike I would buy.
I miss my CR500AF

Right, and that is dl19's entire knowledge base, this guy has a stupendous lack of knowledge on the subject. KTM's are as well built and equipped than anything out there, and they do not have a parts availability or parts price issue moreso than anything else does either.
Other than the 'friend of a friend of a friend'...
I love my Honda and Hondas period, but thinking most dealerships stock a ton of OEM parts isn't any more true than anything else he has written,especially for off-road bikes.
Enjoy your 300 , it's one of the best off-road bikes made. Doug
