Replaced my chain slider with a TM designs unit.When I pulled the bolts on my OEM slider the threads from the swingarms came out with the bolts :worthy:
They had been stripped on original install. So tapped them out to an M6 from M5, made a little modification to the slider mounts and all was golden :cheers:

Also replaced my dying plastic hot start nut with a billet Tokyo Mods one :banghead:

I should be getting my WR back in about a week or so. Then I have to run it in... Any ideas on that?

builder reckons run it for 2 hours in 30 minute intervals with 15-20minute cooling sessions in-between and then change the oil and oil filter?

Im itching for the dunes ... daayummm

Smashed up my left radiator, ripped the whole fender off and destroyed the stock plastic radiator fins and bent the left turn signal. Pictures tomorrow :cheers:

Had it towed in the rain on adobe (slippery like oiled snot) by a crazy Quad rider uphill at about 25MPH shooting mud all over me. I thought I was going to die. I managed to keep it up though. :banghead:

Also rebuilt the petcock at the OHV park before riding today.

Picked up my bike from Dave @ Smart Performance Inc. this morning.
Dave reworked the the FRT W/ Stage 4 / Springs frt & Rear / Magic Fluid and re-greased the linkage/swing arm. After 3hrs @ Hollister (left due to rain), I can honestly say WOW! Night and Day difference. Re World report to come after I get it in some familiar terrain.

Looks Good, Nice addition. Bikes way too clean. I'm sure that will be fixed when the rain stops.

Not today, but very recently I had the suspension revalved by ESP, change oil and air filter. I have an '05 450 (bought it new) and except for getting stiffer springs, this is my first suspension revalve. Shouldn't have waited so long. What a difference!

Installed Smart Performance Phase 4 kit in forks :cheers:

First time revalving forks, not really that bad, and now that I've done it, almost easy.
DaveJ is great, always just a phone call away with any questions :moon:

Only problem is I can't test ride for another couple months with all the snow here :smirk:
