New WR400 owner, new to TT
Posted January 27, 2012 - 05:22 PM
I'm new to Thumper Talk and MX in general. I'm from the UK and already have a Honda CB600 Hornet which is my road bike and recently became the owner of a 2000 Yamaha WR400.
Admittedly it's not up to the standards of some of the bikes I'm seeing on here, and probably not the best starter bike - but the deal was good, and I wanted something to do a bit of trails riding on and have a bit of muddy fun. My youngest son (9) has a 110cc Stomp pit bike, so this means I can also chase him around the fields etc. we have access to.
Already ordered a lowering link as I'm on tip toes when on it, and for making it a bit easier to kick over

Great bike, enjoy.

The bike has been well maintained and used for a bit of trails and enduro. There are a couple of little jobs on the to-do list like re-fitting the speedo, re-connecting the rear light, and fitting the lowering kit then re-setting the suspension for my weight. Workshop manual in hand, and Haynes manual on the way !
Had some fun on it today - absolutely love it :-D Starting a 3-bike trailer build so I can tow it and my sons bike on the back of the Land Rover.
