You caught me:busted: I am going to a 49 in the rear (I know, not a big change) but I decided not to put them on last night as the ride I am doing on Sunday is a bit more rocky/technical. Thought I would wait until I get back. Pictures when completed:thumbsup:

I'm just running stock 13/50 at the moment. When I went to order the sprockets from Dirttricks (great customer service btw and are the mfg of them) they had run out of the 50 so I went with the 49. Thought about going to a 48 but I don't ride mine too much on the highway. Definatley no freeways and I don't care what gearing I have, I won't.:p

Rebuilding my engine. Put a new piston in, dropped a new cyl on, replaced the cam chain and put in a bigger main jet. Cleaned the carb and checked it out.

Do you use regular header wrap or a special brand for dirt bike pipes?

Went riding today on some trails with my son. First time taking the WR450 out and getting out of 1st gear.
Had a blast with my son. He climbed some pretty steep trails his TTR-50. This was his first time on trails. He was timid at first but he loved riding after he climbed his first hill.
The WR450 was easy to ride. No need to haul butt everywhere so we just had fun riding. The WR climbs hills easily. No need to rev the bike to the rev limiter for torque up the hills. I'm not sure who had more fun, me or my son.
