What are you using for a start/kill switch?" Almost looks like a TTR250 combo switch.

Got finished up with the dual sport conversion,added a fender bag and have a Rekluse EXP 2.0 ready to go in and in the morning it goes in for inspection and maybe a plate in the afternoon.

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


when the card trick quits working and they really gush the fluid out. oh, yeah.. business card

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.

A business card works but IMO 35mm film works better. Only problem being in a world of digital cameras not to many of us still have old negatives laying around. ;-)

I made these mounts for the kickstand on a 1999 YZ400 frame so I can load this frame with all my 2002 WR426 components.

Then I got the frame powder coated.

I have a light kit coming and a few other parts. When done I'll have a California plated bike.

I am preparing to sell my 2006 WR450 so I am putting her sort of back to stock removing all of the race decals and custom stuff. Just bought an 012 model so this one has to go, it has been great but the FI is awesome :cry:

How do you like that Lexx exhaust?


I actually got time to ride this weekend and WOW did this exhaust make huge difference.
Tons more bottom to mid range power !!! The front pops up when ever you want now in
1st, 2nd, 3rd and (most of the time) in 4th without clutch work. Its night and day change
from the stock exhust and sounds awesome . Best $200 I have spent so far.

Do you ride on the street a lot? If so let us know how the rear tire wears and tracks off road.

yes, best tire. hooks up like crazy. Makes sure you have it up to 40-45PSI on the road though. super squirrelly under that
