I found a very nice 2007 that appears to have about 25 hours on it.  Stock tires still have more than 50%.  I brought it home, took it for a ride, and then started my dream bike project.

I changed my 08 for a 12; bolted bar risers and hand guards on it and took it for it's first trail ride at the weekend... What a difference!! A lot easier to ride, less fatiguing to ride and more nimble. Made a good decision ;-)

I tried to put the GPR V4 Stabilizer on, but that's not going well.  Took a break from that and did all the suspension bearings.  Dropped all those needles into some parts cleaning fluid, glad I didn't just smear some grease in there.

Feels good knowing everything is clean and greased well.

Installed the GPR V4 Stabilizer.

Put on Devol radiator guards.

Made a block off plate for the AIS.  What people are asking for AIS removal kits is criminal.  20 cents worth of aluminum and 20 cents worth of rubber plugs from AutoZone.

Got my forks back and installed them as well.  She's starting to look like a motorcycle again.

Washed it today after a nice ride last weekend .....

This IMS tank has to go .... it boiled the gas in the tank again on a long ride .

No bueno . Don't wanna catch the forest on fire or my balls .

 

The tank touches the half moons on the valve cover gasket and on a long ride all of a sudden I will nail the throttle and it bogs

and back fires ,  loosen the gas cap and lots of gas fumes rush out and it runs fine but you can still see the gas boiling away  :eek:

 

Very sketchy feeling and with that on your mind while riding ...... not fun .

 

Gonna try to shim the tank AGAIN and if that doesn't work I am ordering the Acerbis tank .

Just finished installing a set of Devol radiator guards. They're nicely engineered and fit like a glove.

I'm doing the air box mod and just wanted to ask... Do you guys just remove the snorkels (circled in red), or do you remove the whole plate (circled in green)?  Do you leave it open, or cover it with a screen? I found lots of pre-2007 answers, but nothing for 2007 and newer.

Thanks

Ran it in, fitted SUB mounted Scotts plus low rise bar, FMF Powercore, IMS tank and rode it some more

Definitely the perfect Valentine. Rides sweetly and just wants more with no other issues!!

I see I am late on this but I am curious as to what other mods you have done to your bike. You mentioned 07 or newer. What year is it?

 

My 2011, 2008 & 2006 I left the plate in, snorkel out, no protection other then the air filter. It didnt have a screen in it to start with and it is under the seat.. However I am a believer that more air in requires more air out. Then once you do the exhaust whether it is new or uncorked it will need to be rejetted. If you are going to do all that then you also need to remove the AIS..........change the throttle stop bolt...............replace the fuel mixture screw............

 

 

Blah blah blah. Heck chances are you have already done all of that and I am waisting your time.

 

Curious though as to what you have done?

My bike is a 2007 WR450F with about 25 hours on it.  I'm doing a bazillion mods, but performance wise:

 

Grey Wire

AIS Removed

Air Box Mod (just snorkels so far)

Throttle Stop Screw replaced

Exhaust mod via GYTR Replacement End Cap

 

I'm still digging through twenty thousands posts to figure out the jetting.  I ride in the Sierras at 5000-8500 feet altitude.  My rough guestimate at this point is:

 

Main jet: 168
Pilot Jet: 45
PAJ: 110
Leak Jet: 50
Starter Jet: 68

Fuel screw (turns out): stock 1.5

Needle Model/Clip position: No F'in clue

 

I'm very open to good advise on jetting from those that ride at the same altitude with the the same mods.

 

Cheers!

I would tell you that I will look up my jetting I have wrote down when i get home but that might be a lie. Meeting the wife after work for dinner then off to a friends place. Most likely late when I get home and then i get up at 2:45 for work. If no one else gets it figured out for you then I will see if I can remember to look it up on Sunday evening after work.

 

Honestly I prefer to go with the JD Jet kit. I have it in all of my bikes and it has been perfect every time. Yes they are a bit expensive at $90 but you get everyting you need and the instructions on how to place everything for your temp and altitude. The reason I spend the money is I dont like F'N with it more than once.
