What did I do to my WR today? I bought it!
Have been on an XR4 for years and was undecided on an upgrade. The XR needed some serious suspension work to get it right and I knew that it would never be great even with lots of $$$, then an 06 wr450f with 5000kms, in really good condition came up and I picked it up for a good price, so now I will pump some $$$ into it and get it perfect. Will be sad to see the XR go but it had reached the end for me handling wise. I don't need the extra power of the WR but I certainly won't compain!
I will post a pic once I figure out how!

Did an oil change, replaced the air filter with a clean, oiled one, slipped on a new rear tire, adjusted the chain and gave the bike a good detailing.. It's ready for our quarterly man-trip to GA for a week. Gonna be fun!

Put new black rims, tires, starter motor, new sprockets, chain and new battery. Having difficulty posting a pic of my bike. Any recommendations is much appreciated.

[color=#222222][font=Arial][size=2]I bought this 06 WR 450 brand new in 07 and have had nothing but fun on it. over the years I did nothing but the occasional oil and filter change and gas it up and go. If course I put tires on it as needed and cleaned the air filter as well as the basic maintenance. I did do most of the free mods and had an extra wheel with a paddle tire for the dunes . a couple years ago I did a little enduro racing with it and put on a Dr D pipe. Other then that it had been stock, all but the pipe. [/size][/font][/color]
[color=#222222][font=Arial][size=2] [/size][/font][/color]
[color=#222222][font=Arial][size=2]At the end of last year I started to have starting issues with the electrical system and thought it was time to either give her an overhaul or get a new bike. A month ago I stripped the bike down to motor and frame. Had the frame powder coated and had the motor checked out for tolerances and specs. I ended up going with a new clutch pack and a tune up. I put new spokes on front and back as wheel as new wheel bearings. Also new Bridgestone’s all the way around. Turns out the yoke on my starter had loosened over the years. It had turned abit making the points not line up. A new battery and the starter alignment did the trick. Next had the front and rear shocks rebuilt by raceteck. Then went on new Bark busters and a new graphics kit( to cover all the gouges and scratches). New sprockets and chain where next. Had a new gripper seat put on and this is he turn out. The only thing left is a 3.5 gallon tank I ordered from acerbis. (for a 500 mile trip I’m working on ) Posted Image [/size][/font][/color]

I just bought a plated 08' a couple of days ago and got my tag for it today. Rode it a little, mostly felt great, but sputtered a few times like it was running out of gas. Stopped for gas, but it only held 1/2 a gallon. Seemed to clear up as I rode more. I picked up a new sparkplug & figure I'll change it & the oil and check the valve clearance over the weekend. Sure hope that they are within specs because I don't have any shims & there's not a dealer nearby.

This is one badass bike. Coming off a stock DRZ400S. Sunday I'll be testing my buddy's 2011 Husaberg 570 & we'll be riding them all next week up here, in the NC mtns.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Took mine out on my first ride of the year. Went with a group to Moab and road the Dead Cow Tube Loop clockwise this time and also did the Green River Loop. Great ride and the weather was beautiful. I love living within 3 1/2 hours from Moab. This next weekend I am taking the Jeep down

Are you going to put up a video or are you just going to tease us with the jetting kit pics?
