This is a friends bike. What piece is missing? It was lost during a hare scramble. I believe the rider said there was some oil dripping out. My guess is that is an auto decompression release. I tried to look the part #'s up on bike bandit. Any info will be greatly appreciated.


Update. I don't have a photobucket account so I could not attach a picture. It's located on the right side of the head directly above the exhaust pipe. It's a WR 450.

Sounds like the rubber plug that blocks the hole for the decomp used on the 426. Notorious for blowing out particulary if the breather tube is blocked for any reason (i.e - pinched, debris, etc). Do yourself a favor and get a billet one. Held in by bolt instead of a press fit. There are a couple of variations but here's one I found with a quick search:

Yeah, remember to give the helpful guys like PBDBlue some gas. ie. add to their reputation by clicking on the gas tank in the upper right hand corner of their post.

I just gave some to pbdblue.

This forums pretty bad that way. You'll give a guy a bunch of help and you're lucky to get a thank you let alone some good gas :ride:

While I agree, Im not here for "gas" ... Im here to learn and share information :ride:

Heck when I tested all the stators and posted up resutls, I got like two replies to the thread :lol:

It just goes to show that use WR guys are to busy ridding instead of wrenching :)

I agree and there are members that are a valuable part of information exchange :)
I guess it's just when you get sucked into a 5 or 6 question thread and you don't even know if it ever worked for the guy :lol:

You can certainly tell there's not to many faults with the WR as the majority of threads are " How do I uncork, jet my WR "
It pretty much ends with that :lol:

You guys got a point there.

Well I have lots of gas to give so I just keep on giving and giving.

It reminds me of a story.

A SHORT LOVE STORY

A man and a woman who had never met before, but who were both married to other people,
found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a trans-continental train.

Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly, he in the upper berth and she in the lower.

At 1:00 AM, the man leaned down and gently woke the woman saying ... 'Ma'am, I'm sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket? I'm awfully cold.'

'I have a better idea,' she replied 'Just for tonight ... let's pretend that we're married.'

'Wow! ... That's a great idea!', he exclaimed.

'Good,' she replied. ... 'Get your own f***** blanket.'


After a moment of silence, ......................he farted.
