I looked at it when I was at my moms house(she's storing it for me until I can get my storage area cleaned out).Does that count for anything?

Finished installing my new Tusk brand enduro kit. (from rockymountainatv.com) Not very difficult at all. However...I cant seem to get the headlight to work. Im not sure of the placement of the main vs high vs low beam wires. Also, Ive bled and bled and bled the rear brakes. I swear there is more air than when I started. Got my dual sport tires too. I'll post some pics when Im done. peace/love/motorcycles

I’ve often wondered how well those work. Let us know!


Put 30miles of Single track on the TuBliss system. Ran 10psi in the rear and 12psi in the frt. No issues, lots of traction. Hard to say what a real life result is cause the dirt was perfect and tires were new. Going out again Saturday, may have more data after that ride.

Serviced my 07 WR450F today after riding for the first time with the Rekluse Z Start Pro clutch installed. Man i loved it! It's worth every penny i spent on it. Tight, nasty single track trails are where it really shines, the more technical the better it works. I recommend this to anyone who rides tight, wooded technical trails.

Took the carburetor apart for the first time and gave it a thorough cleaning, plus installed R&D FlexJet. I've got an off idle bog now, but will be fixed in the morning. Pretty proud of myself for getting everything back in place with no extra parts. News handlebars too... :thumbsup:

I just put on a T.M. designworks chain guide and a Scorpion Racing skid plate on my 2009 WR 450F. She looks great! I love her!

cleaned the carb, changed the oil and coolant, and took it for the first short ride of the year. Between house hunting, moving, and work I hadn't touched it since last summer. It felt damn good to rip around my field on it a bit!

Also ordered a Trailtech Vapor and a new battery for it, should be here next week.

TT store. They have a parts unlimited brand for $55 I think or the OEM YUASA brand.

Considering mine was original and I got over 5 years out of it, I went with the YUASA. http://shop.thumpert...ctCode=PU_ytz7s

I am looking at the same thing - but for a 450 it is recommended that you get the 8 cell version that is $140

I only get a little over a year out of the yuasa turds so if the ebatt lasts only 2 years I have already saved money
