Fitted some new (blue) breather hoses and prepped it for an outing this weekend with some friends.

Also taught my 12 year old to ride my 9 year old's pit bike. He's never shown an interest before, but decided he wanted a go this weekend.

An hour later, he thoroughly enjoyed it and he's got an order in for a YZ85 :banghead: Good job I'm building a 3 bike trailer!

My youngest was not completely impressed with sharing his bike with his brother. Some comment about "never rub another man's rhubarb" was mentioned.

Graphics kit and operation hide-tools. Got tired of the dang fender packs on there.. plus I want a fender rack for my chainsaw

These fit nicely under the seat.

Some heavy duty 4" tape over tools to keep them secure

Bag that I keep my air compressor in. I have all my tools and air compressor on the bike now without an annoying fender bag. woohoo! Some stuff went behind the headlight and one multi tool into the airbox

I see some tubeless repair tools in your tool kit why ? you are running a tubed tyre - no tubless repair will work and the tyre weld cans from waldo wil not either.

Looks like it will really roar ! Would love to hear it in full flight !
I have a Bill's Pipes Thunder Series on my 99 WR400 which does sound great .... I can only imagine this Lexx sounds even better !
Enjoy ........ Baz

So far I am pretty happy with it, although I havent had a chance ride it yet to feel
the power difference over the stock unit.

The fit was damn near perfect ! Only issue is that now my header touches bolt for one of the oil lines.
I still have to shave a little off the top of that bolt head to get some clearence.

The muffler itself looked and felt really well made and not cheezy at all......except maybe the
mounting "STRAP", just seems weird to be a strap but once everything is tightened its
pretty solid.

It comes with 2 tips, a 46mm "race tip" which is LOUD AS HELL and will require a rejet. Spark arrestor is
purchased separately for the race tip. and the "quiet tip" with a sparky built in is deffanitly louder than stock
and sounds pretty good- thats what I am using.

While it sounds way better it does not have a deep/throaty/bass sound I was kind of expecting but maybe
thats just the way the WR cams sound.

The pipe looks lovely and is a great fit with the side panel.
The rest of your bike looks super-clean too .... Nice !

Thanks so much. The pipe sounds and performs well but it's not the one I really wanted, there's just not much available yet. The bike is so clean because it only has 110 miles on it and it's still new so I don't mind spending a little extra time cleaning it. LOL

did you try the credit card trick? take your fork guards off and slide a credit card around way up in there a few times. works well enough for me to keep riding the rest of the season

how do you know when you need seals? Mine has some oil on them but doesn't seem to get worse.

They were leaking a bit when the bike was loaded up prior to going out. Had not noticed it before. Not 100% confident on work done by previous owner so will do them anyway and fit some neoprene gaitors at the same time.

I think you meant to say "business card", not credit card. The hard plastic credit card won't get in under the seal. Take a business card, tear off the end and poke the corner of the card up into the seal and move it sideways toward the torn edge. The torn edge will pick up and clean the dirt trapped in the seal.
