well today i cleaned the air filter and box, put the battery on to charge, and halfway attempted to put a new seal on the water pump impeller.... noticed i had a leak and thats what i heard i needed so i picked up the parts. i went to put it on and noticed that the leak was between the cases so i tighten up all the bolts and to my suprise they all turned about a 1/4 turn... it stopped leaking...

2006 WR450.

Just plated mine in CO ($225 taxes and registration) and hooked up a hydraulic brake switch, totally easier than i thought it would be. Now the guy behind me in the hare scrambles or enduro race can tell when im braking...:thumbsup:

Got my new Fox V3 Pilot helmet in the mail on Monday.....very nice. Yesterday, a pair of Enduro Engineering handguards with Yammy blue protectors/deflectors, a pair of blue SealSavers (short), and two Vee Rubber HD inner tubes showed up in the mailbox.
Now if we can just lose this snow and get riding!

Dropped the counter shaft sprocket one tooth, fiddled with my sag, dropped my forks a little in the triple clamp, put a new no-toil in.

We had some fresh snow, and it was hazy yesterday so it was tough to read the trail and I hit a soft spot. The ski floats the front over but the rear can dig a hole pretty quick.

Here's the live version near the end of this 3 minute clip from yesterdays ride.

Oh yeah.

The 2006 WR450 Steering Stem Nut is 32 mm.

I bought a wheel axle socket from Autozone to remove it. It's on really tight and should not be removed with a crescent wrench.

I regreased my steering stem last weekend, if you stay on top of this it will not get rusty and buggered up. I do mine once a year, but I dont ride a ton of wet or mud.
