2004 WR450F, 550 miles. Zilch problems, but not a lot of miles. GlocksRock, when I get to the 950 mile mark, I will cross my fingers! :applause:

My 03 WR450 just turned over 4400 mi with no problems, not even the dreaded woodruff key. Left intake is at minimum but not changing. I want an 07 but hate to get rid of a good running trust worthy machine.

'00 WR400 with apprx 7,000 miles. No valve adjustments. Maxima 10w-40 conventional oil. Started 2nd kick after storage last winter. Usually it's a first kick starter using that silly little decomp lever which is fast becoming a novelty. I look forward to many more....

:prof: I ride an 05 -450 and just rolled the odo over for the 9th time =9000+miles of street :prof: and trail... Just changed the jetting out yesterday (and the day before with weak results) and now she's screamin (check sticky). Just put a 45 toother on this evening to see what happens. Have not checked valves yet but will do that this weekend. The only repair I have had to make is a new tail light bulb today. As a matter of fact the time before last I changed the oil I forgot to refill the crankcase :bonk: and rolled around the hood for a few wheelies and all for bout 10 min. Figured it out the next morning and filled it up. Its been rollin strong since :D BTW gettin 50+ mpg before rejetting. :applause:
