Hi, I'm new to the site I just purchased a 2000 WR with a cracked head and leaking radiators. The previous owner didn't think he needed antifreeze in Utah i guess. I have been using this website and its been really helpful lots of good information hear guys keep it up! I had radiators repaired, head welded and machined. I bought a wiesco piston and new cam chain and put the motor back together today. I should be able to take the frame and other parts off to powder coat this week. I'm really looking forward to the winter project. I'm going to try to do all the mods you guys recommended. Ill see if i can post some pictures as well. Thanks for all the information and for reading.

Be absolutely sure that all the threads are protected, and the bearing seats, and that the oil tank is completely closed off.

Lookin good. I think a medium or dark grey with a hammered finish would be a good color for the frame.
