I drowned my WR 450 2005 in a river 2 years ago. - Found it back a little further down the river. - All went fine except the speedometer got killed.
As I see some people are buying new speedometers, I would like to ask if anyone would like to sell me the original one. - Note this is a 2005, and street legal.

for what its worth-
sent the crank out to mr crankshft without a doubt great, absolutely fantastic service from ship date to return. vince called me apon the cranks arrival and kept me posted through the process....189.00 back to my door is really fair in all considering.

vince if you get a chance to read this, thanks again.

New FX EVO-8 decals for my 07 WR450. FX as always is the best in fit and quality. Mounted on white Acerbis shrouds.

Took my trusty old WR400 in for Blue Slip ready for Rego.

Left it with them for 2 hours.

I came back and they sheepishly asked me how to start my bike.

6 guys from the service dept (car yard) couldn't start it :rant:

So...I hopped on, pulled the choke, and kicked her ONCE and Vroooom :smirk:

Must say I almost laughed out loud.

Bit stupid how a car yard does the safety check for a bike when they really know nothing about them.

I installed a set of Devol rad guards that I got off of fleabay on the cheap. Put in a new plug while I had the tank off. I also received my freshly serviced forks, new wheel bearings and seals, swing arm bearing kit, chain slide and brake pads.

I have a One Industries decal / seat cover set on the way... Hard to find for an 04. :thumbsup: I bought the bike used last summer, the decals that came on it are custom decals with the dealer's name, etc on them. They aren't too bad looking but they are starting to peel at the edges.

Looked longingly at my 450F, then changed the right rear tube on the Outlaw quad and ran the kid's TTR just in case it doesn't get ridden this weekend. :thumbsup:

Installed my newly designed, front caliper guard. It's welded to the stainless steel "Rooster" front disc guard, and will transfer any impacts directly to the axle. A few weeks back, I smucked a rock at the exact perfect height to destroy my old caliper. Maniac

Nice! What brand of rear chain guide are you running, and what size sprockets?

I replaced my fork seals last night. I had scratched my inner fork tube on a rock when I crashed and blew my MCL out. I sanded the scratches and then put marine grade JB Weld in the scratches and then sanded them smooth. Hopefully it will hold, if not, time to find some used forks. You can buy two forks for the price of an inner.
