Question. Did the WR450 throw/burn much oil through that duration ? It seems that this model goes through less oil than my previous WR400 and WR426. If not, then that is truly amazing.

I too am wondering about that gas mileage, are you sure you didn't go 102KM? I know the San Felipe area is real sandy and soft, unless of course, you guys just rode on the highways.
I have a IMS 3.1ga desert tank on mine and I did a 75 mile ride this last weekend and barely made it back to camp. Of course I was riding pretty hard and the trail was real rocky and steep in places with switchbacks.
It's good to hear that most of us are enjoying our new KING OF THE DESERT WR450's. I have no regrets, thats for sure.

That's alot of miles to put in on a bike with only a o-ring going bad! Way to go!! Great milage also!

Fantastic to here the woodruff problem is no problem at all! I and many others here have been fending off the negative comments and now we have proof! I have 668 miles on mine with the original woodruff key. How do you get 50 miles to the gallon? Is it all cruising at low rpms in top gear on hard pack that lets you get those numbers or can you get that in sand with liberal amounts of throttle? I seem to get only 25 mpg when riding hard in soft terrain with hills.
Wow! 668 miles on an 03, you need to ride more!
I think this bike had over 20,000 on it before it was stolen in 06 or 07.
Here's a bump for your water pump problem.

6 year old thread guys.
Back then, TT had some substance to it.

Wow. The is the second 5-6 year old thread ivs seen revived this morning! To answer your question yes replacing the seal will fix the problem but look for wear on the shaft too or you will be doing the job again soon! Do a search, there are a couple of threads with step-by-step and pictures.
I am having the same problem with my 2002 wr 426. There is coolent coming out of the seep hole. Will replacing the o-ring solve my problem???
