WR 450 surges at constant speed
Posted May 26, 2003 - 03:22 AM
Oh, BTW, After hauling the bike on my trailer a couple of times, I seem to have dumped the oil out of my left fork leg (I assume it is a blown seal). I have never really done any work on forks before. Should I tackle this job on my own or should I take it to the shop? If I should do it, are there any special tools I should get?

Before you redo the seals try this trick first. Get an old film negative and slide it up the tube into the seal. work your way around and see if you get any sand or dirt coming out. This is a common problem. A buisness card will work in a pinch also. As far as your hiccup, what mods, if any, have you done?. Read the posts on mods and especially read up on the jetting. Also, read up on the fuel mixture screw. I made all the mods, and it came down to the fuel mixture screw being off. Buy yourself a zip-ty replacement screw, and start fiddilin with it!

OK, I don't want to sound too dumb, but... if I am getting sand out of my seal... what do I do?? Tear it down and clean it?? Replace the seals?

I'll just respond to the surging. Put in the stock YZ needle, 4th position. I could never get the stock WR needle to work right.
