Went riding and busted through the ice in the ditch. water up to the carb. Boots completely full of ice water. we went back and put my boots upside down in front of the heater for an hour. Then i put bags on my feet, put my boots back on and headed out again for another few hours. Can't wait for summer.

Bled the front brakes, they felt mushy. Had air in them.
Got my GYTR AIS Kit in and a GYTR fuel screw.
This is where I am at right now:

I did the O-ring mod with an o-ring from a DID 520 chain. The two o-rings are almost the same size, so I figured I would try this. The chain o-ring seems to have a bit more tension on it. http://s552.photobuc...th_DSCF0130.jpg

I bought a 2005 YZ450F stock exhaust off ebay, should be here Thursday.

Now I am going to take the carb off, put in the GYTR needle and jet and throttle stop and the adj. fuel screw. Had to take a break and get something to eat.

I'll be sending the AIS stuff of to a TT member.

A while back i designed my own graphics and sent them off to my aunt who printed them. I cost me fifty bucks. I promised i'd post pictures, but i used my friend's camera and he deleted them cuz he thought i was done with them, so i'll tell you how it worked out.

They looked awesome. great solid colour, tough material and real sticky. The problem was that they were kind of papery and didn't stretch at all. When i started putting them on, they got some wrinkles and because of what they were made of, the wrinkles wouldn't come out. The instructions said if they were going to be used outside it would be good to laminate them, so i got some laminate and put it on. The problem was that the stickers had wrinkles and the laminate didn't form tightly to th wrinkles and developed some bubbles around them. In the end the smooth parts looked great, but the wrinkles ruined it.

My aunt added a bunch of logos and things on the side and so i took off the graphics and put those on and laminated them. They look great.

All in all i would say it was a good experiment. I'm sure it would work great if i had gotten a different type of stuff to print it on. I was in a print shop downtown and they showed me some stuff that they could use for it and it would work i'm sure. It was plastic and stretchy and seethrough. They could also laminate it so the ink would stay on real good.

With the right material it would work great. I plan to get more stickers made once my aunt can get a hold of some of that plastic stuff.

I just got my '07 WR450 back from the shop today. The history... On my last ride a buddy leaned his bike against mine and when he lifted it off his foot peg pulled out my oil line. The issue being unseen untill later my cams melted into my head.

So today all said and done I had my motor rebuilt (:lol: month process), Hotcam intake cam, boyesen quickshot2 accel/pump cover, and a FMF Q4 slip-on. Seems fast on the street, saturday will be my first trial run.

Personally not haveing work done at that shop ever again!:p

Anyone have input on these mods? Did they work well for you?

Simple upgradeds have already been done smog delet etc.

Rumaging through the scrap bin and spending an hour, was alot better then spending $400 bucks on a new one. If I could have found one on ebay for cheap, I would have went that route, but this worked out just fine.:p

Finished up removing the AIS stuff.
Went to UPS to ship the AIS to a TT member....$8.00 shipping.
Removed the WR exhaust and put a 2005 YZ450F stock pipe on it. Got it off ebay for $80.
http://s552.photobuc...nt=DSCF0131.jpg

Didn't know it but the WR pipe was twisted at the front of the muffler.
The YZ is louder but it's not obnoxiously loud. The bike runs good with no popping on deceleration and pulls good on the little test run I did up into 3rd gear.

Ordered a 120 rear tire from the shop that did my suspension. They test rode the bike too and liked it with the YZ pipe on it.

Does the YZ pipe require richer fuel screw setting or jetting?

I used the GYTR AIS removal kit. It came with a 48 pilot (stock is a 45 on mine) and the GYTR needle(clip in the #4 position) replaced the non adjustable stock one. I just simply followed the instructions that came with the kit.
I did get the GYTR adjustable fuel screw at the same time. The OEM one was 4 1/8 turns out. From what I've read, that is way too far out. I have the adjustable one at 1 turn out.
I also did the Oring mod. I have the Orings from HomeDepot but I ended up using an Oring from some 520 chain links I cut when putting a new chain on my 636.
I tried adjusting the AP, but no matter what I did, I couldn't get it to hit the slide, so I just put it back to the original position.
To answer you question, I did rejet, but only what the instructions told me to do. When I take her out next week sometime, I'll get a better idea where the jetting is at.
