Thanks for the acknowledgement Dave. I like the Badlands because it is close to home. But I prefer to ride on Kentucky's Daniel Boone forest for my full weekend rides. I have finally got the bike where it needs to be. I have taken 4 months to get all the mods and set up to my liking. I agree this bike is an awesome mud slinging hill climbing monster. The bottom end suits my riding style and terrain very well. Hope every one is happy with their WR450. Mods for the most part are a personal touch. :)

I cant post pics but I can email pics of any specific item you are interested in. I am not into the graphics and cool decals. My bike is very plain looking blue with all factory decals gone. Plastic is beat up and scratched and I am on my third set of rad air scoops. New front fender, headlight cover, ignition switch, and bark busters. In general I just ride the hell out of it and dont spend much time making it look pretty. I spend my time tuning and taking care of the bike. Oil changes every week, etc. So if there is something specific someone wants to see a pic of please PM me. Got to go ride! :)

I am having my radiator straightened and Unabiker rad braces installed on my 07 WR450. I bought it in the spring and kept my KX250 for awhile, but I only wanted to ride the WR, so it was sold mid summer.

Moose racing bleeder valves for front forks
6" seal savers on the forks
F2 Racing uncorking kit (those guys are great)
- new needle
- new jets
- instructions to remove smog pump
- instruction to remove snorkel
- throttle screw
- several sturdier screws for the float bowl and carb head
- removed baffle in muffler

I have gone to reserve on two occasions when my ride buddies have all had lots of gas left. I am thinking about a bigger tank or carrying some gas in my pack. Does anyone have any comments on getting a larger tank and will that affect the radiator mounts, which would in turn affect my rad braces/guards?

Two weeks ago I bought my 2005 WR450f with only 83 miles on it. After draining the tank and cleaning the filter I performed the tips I got from you guys..... Thanks!

1. 48 Pilot Jet
2. 170 Main Jet
3. Cut Gray Wire
4. Uncorked Muffler
5. Removed Air Cleaner "Silencer"
6. Installed adjsutable Mixture Screw (2 1/2 turns out)
7. Shortened Throttle Stop Screw

This thing idles like a dream and runs very strong. After warm, wheelies in 2nd and third just by rolling the throttle. If anybody has any more free tips, bringem' on!

Thanks again,
