I paid way too much! First I bought a set of 08 forks for about 700$ and, realized I need the 07s for every thing to work right. Luckily I found a kid to trade for his 07 forks. I know that I paid allot of money but, YZ forks RIP on a WR...You should be able to find a set for about 3 to 4 hundred $..

Thats about what it is going to cost me to respring and revalve mine. What about your lower covers? Do they match up on mount holes? With the speedo cable looms in them I was wondering if there was going to be any "Rodent Engineering".

I'm pretty sure the 08 YZ forks will work! The down side is that you need to buy the 08 brake rotor, fork guards, axle and, spacers that's it I think.:thumbsup:
If you get 07 or older forks everything lines up even the odo! That was the biggest loss for me with 08 forks is you cant use the odo! It seems like a no brain-er to get the 07 forks...:thumbsup:

[COLOR="Green"]I really want a G2 throttle like you just bought Red
My bike is running so good right now I think the quickie turn throttle would help lots

I installed a YZ cam today
And I installed the little aluminum block off plug that came on my 04 where the compression release cable went into on the older bikes.

These motors are made for this cam. Trying to detune a full race motor to WR specs in my opinion doesnt just slow it and make it easier to ride, it make it run like crap. My bike sounds so sweet and is so responsive right now.Pipe, Oring,now this cam,Im diggin this big bike.All this and street legal too.
Yamaha should just install a slow turn throttle on a YZ if they want a tractable bike for off road[/COLOR]

yeah... it really helps cause after you do the throttle screw swap there is to much pull.

OT here, but that Baja trip you took with your dad was way cool:thumbsup: :thumbsup: Great report and everlasting memories.

I'd love to do something like that with my 20 year old. If you plan on doing it again let me know....an all WR trip!

It worked great in the powder

but the airbox was a little overwhelmed and needed a cleaning

That was after the cleaning, this is what it looked like when I opened the hatch, and it was still running, a little rough, but running.:thumbsup:

Replaced shock spring with 5.8 rate. Doing forks tomorrow with .48. Felt GREAT after my test ride. Also put anti-seize on almost every bolt on the subframe and rear brake (Working my way forward). Probably overkill but I'm tire of stripping screws and bolts!
