had a quick lock at the new timber trail roads.

 

I have a problem, a quick twist of the throttle and the engine dies for a short while.

 

I have JD jetting kit, i have opened up the exhaust and airbox. It was fine this winter, but now when its warmer meaby i need to turn in the fuel screw?

Its about 1½ twist out.

 

I put in the recommended jetting kit.

 

im also thinking of getting a full YZ exhaust, is it loud? Is it worth it?

I installed an IMS fuel tank with 2006 WR petcock on my 2007. It fit great until I tried to put the seat back on and the bolt holes didn't line up.

I was under the impression that steel and aluminum frame tanks are significantly different, and not easy to swap. Then again, 400/426 can swap on 450 plastics if they make some adapters so it may be possible.

Maybe it's just the petcock that's from a 2006 bike and not the tank.

I don't think the petcock bolts to anything other than the tank so I'm not sure how it would make anything else not line up.

I don't understand what that has to do with bolt holes.

I installed a 2 inch frogskinz on my airbox for better breathing. I run these on my
Snowmobiles to get engine heat out of the cowel to save belts. Amazing product, no moisture allowed through but air is

Just bought a wr426 a few weeks ago. Already i got sick of the paint wear and chipping from boots on the frame of the bike. So "rhino lined"

the parts that were getting the most contact with boots. I did this with a roll of tape i found on amazon originally to put on steps getting into cars. It is the texture of truck bed liner. after applying it i heated it up to make sure it was on there good and it has held up to my pressure washer perfectly since. i also like the black color it adds to the bike

Worn shaft and a completely trashed seal. Pulled the seals and bearing and ordered new parts.

New head gasket, powdercoated both sidecases while the engine was out.

Looks a little rich so we're dialing back the jetting a bit.

Hoping to have it finished and go riding this weekend!!

 

Hey, I have that same license plate!!

Took it for a little shakedown ride after all the recent changes. No problems, but it does pop a lot on deceleration, despite the lack of AIS.

I will keep you updated on how they perform and wear. I do 90% off-road riding so hopefully they hold up for a while

Did a little practice until I got too wet and cold, then cleaned it up and did all new graphics and jewelry.
