Revalved and changed out seals on my forks. I can't believe the base valves they put in the WR's. I really don't understand why they put that spring on the bottom of the valve.

Ordered it today. thanks to you and bigcoop for the recommendation. Is that a oem fender and what model year is it for? I like the pointed style but I don't know if they can be made to fit a 2001.


Sory for the delayed response. I think its a UFO 2004 yz fender and fits my 2004 WR fine. It has cut outs for the WR coolant overflow. Pretty simple install, just cut out along the lines and bingo!

I smashed my exhaust header, looped her once, and just rode the tar out of it all day.

yup, looks like a spark plug to me, your on the right track:thumbsup:

they're like three bucks, i change them basically whenever i have the tank off. WRs are way picky with them.

Mounted up a new 756 on the rear, great tire for the area I ride in. Front looks to be good until I replace the rear again:thumbsup:

I changed the sprockets.

I thought I was running the stock 14/50's so I changed to 16/48. I ride mine on the street and found the original gearing really limited my highway speeds. Anything over 80 km/hr was torture.

As it turned out the previous gearing was actually 13/50, boy what a difference the 16/48 combination made. I may of overshot a bit.

Got up early, turned down saturday morning sex. Took my favorite lady out for a morning of being thrashed in the dirt, 3 tanks of fuel later and she was well and truly ringed out.

Heheh, I would never turn down Sat. morning sex... :smirk:

Did a bunch of mods today. Installed YZ/WR ASV C5 levers. Note to ASV: It would be uber nice if I didn't have to cut down part of the starter button, hide the clutch switch (not that it's used anymore, but still...), and put the kill switch at a funky angle to make it work... :excuseme: but they work! :ride:

Installed these custom steel handguards that have reduced the handlebar vibrations by 80%. I have mild CTS. Without them, I could not ride the WR. The bar end portion is 3/4" x 2" diam. The handguard portion is 1/4" x 1" flat bar. The foam grips from KTMTwins.com are also new, and the most comfy grips you will ever find, even better than my 737's :excuseme: :

One day this week, I'll pretty them up and paint 'em blue.

Also, I did the free clutch lever mod. It's just like everyone said - a major reduction in clutch pull.

I'm sorry to say, that I sold my WR. Didnt want to. But dealing with out of state registraion and playing ping-pong with CHP and DMV. I'll wait and maybe by a AF WR later. I still have my YZ.
