spent hours lashing it to the trailer and took it for a spin. All was smooth and happy till i went over a speed bump. I looked in the rear view mirror and my eyes jumped out of my head big time, proper black eyes time lol. The bike was leaning over :p and I had to pull over to correct the lashing. GREAT day though. Just trailering the bike was immense fun. Also re-fitted the handguards and turned the engine over. Im going to book some lessons and probably an apointment to see my Dr for when i come off lol. It be sunny, it be beer time. peace.

I put my 99WR400 supermoto back together today. I painted the frame, re- greased the swing arm and gave it a good cleaning. Im having a problem with the front brake. I cant get the air out of the line. It just seems to keep bubbling. Also the rear wheel spins free when the axle is not tight but when I tighten the axle it gets hard to spin. Any ideas?

I went riding with my son at a local riding spot. We hit some packed sand, soft sand, hard packed clay, dirt and a water crossing. My son had a blast and got some air on a couple of jumps. He laid it down alot in the soft sand but he learned to keep his balance a little better and to look through turns instead of looking at his front wheel. Another kid had a TTR-50 too, so they played follow the leader on a small loop someone set up.
The area we rode has a hare scramble race there every year so there are tons of trails. I got to hit some of them on the WR without my son in tow. I love the WR and it's still all stock. 2nd gear most everywhere...it's almost like having and automatic...lol.
I threw my son on the WR with me and climbed some steep hills he couldn't go up on his 50. He loved it.
I just need to get the suspension setup for my 215lbs and I'll be good.

Is that an 08 YZ exhaust? If yes, what do you do about a sparky?
