Got it washed from my New Years trip. Serviced all the minis for the next trip, and spent the rest of the day figuring out how to straighten my tweaked sub-frame.:lol:

Was that from your spill I suppose?

Yeah, the fender is about 1 inch to the left off center. I am going to try to block the bike and pull the whole sub-frame over. If all else fails, I'll just buy a sub-frame when I order the front master cylinder. I haven't looked at prices yet, kind of afraid to.

Krannie nice risers, what brand are those? Also I raced my first desert race and won first in my class. Took front forks into precision concepts for valving and springs, hope the rear is tolerable now. I love this bike.

I installed my new cycra handguards & Maxxis Desert IT tires:

then I loaded up & headed for a ride, but on the 405 downhill, the following happened, causing me to swerve on the rim to the side of the freeway:

So I unloaded everything on the side of CAlifornia's busiest freeway & changed the wheel. I never made it to my ride after this:

Just curiuos. Is there a reason you didn’t go with the pro-bend line?

What year bike is it?

I just replaced the subframe on my 07' cause I broke it trying to straighten it. I lucked out and found one on e-bay from a parted out zero hour 07'... lucked out on the auction and got it for $27.00 :lol:

My sponsor, (Yamaha dealer here in WA), was offering it to me for $238:smirk:

Checkout "keepitroostin" on e-bay they have a subframe right now for a steel framed WR I think.

I used a frame straightening tool with the subframe on the bike and ended up breaking mine. My advice if you straighten it is to remove it from the bike first and try to build some sort of jig or block as you described on the work bench. Good luck:ride:

Mine is an 07 also. I saw the retail price for a subframe, and decided I would give straightening it a try. I also just discovered that I took out my left side cover on the same get off. It is dented and cracked, so I am hoping to just weld it. Crashing sure is expensive.

I delaced my wheels, had the hubs powder coated, and the rims anodized :worthy:
Then I laced 'em back up, trued up the wheels, and wrassled my tires back on. Got $70 +few hours labor in it. :lol:

I took old Betsy out today, suffered the 35 degree temperatures, flogged her through a LOT of mud and said to myself, "this is the best damn $1200 I ever spent". (ok, I added the hand guards, new tires and a larger tank). Still, fantastic purchase in my mind.
