An item you might consider that i really have liked is the Acerbis Frame Guards. It doesn't take long for the frame to look like crap and these definitely help with that.

Let us know how the S. Dakota deal works out for you.

Side note: daaaamn I'm jealous...

Off-topic question, but since you have/had both, how would you compare the 07-11 WRs to the CRF-X as far as handling and power?

Yes, the SD delio should be interesting. 

Two friends have done it without issues.

 

WR vs CRFX:

 

The CRFX goes through the terrain. Not over it, not around it, but through it. You can pretty much ignore all rocks and ruts and it turns out fine.

Of course, this ultra-stable feel is a burden under 10mph, but it sure is great in the desert. Nothing better.  My motor is stage 3 ported with an R cam so, it's a real experience to ride!

 

The 07-11 WR is the closest I have every found to the stability of the X, but without the 'dead' feeling at 5 mph.

It also gets air, when the X feels like an anchor at the same speed. The stock suspension is useless over 30 mph.

 

If I had only one bike to choose from it would be a 2011 WR450F chassis with 2012 susension, and a CRF450X motor like mine wedged in there....

I don't try and prevent scratches, just damage.

No swingarm or frame covers for me.

Looks like spring has sprung or someone has sprung for that new ride.

 

That's a nice fleet in the garage.

 

The problem with multiple bikes is trying to decide which one to take out to ride...but that is a real nice problem to have.

 

Have fun Krannie.

The right YZ peg bracket is backordered for 4 weeks! But it's not essential, as I already have that one, which I will molest.

I got it... I was just trying to tell you that there is HOPE! Nothing worse than getting a new rig and having to wait! :)

 Also remember that if you need other aftermarket parts and we don't have it I can get it to you as ASAP! People keep forgetting that we have a full retail shop and then I just sit on Thumpertalk and answer phones all day and don't get to play with all the neat parts!

 Thanks-

Oh, I know about the shop Eric. 

It's about 30 min from me, the same distance as TO Powersports, Ken and Joes, and you have a much deeper selection of controls and accessories than anyone else around here...

Looks like shock R&R is much easier than the older bikes. Pull tank and pull shock? If so, sweet!

Yes. Actually just turn the tank sideways and get the shock out. Made it nice.

      Hey guys I was wondering what bike I should get I havnt rode since I was in 7th grade but I had a kx 85 so I was experienced with riding I could pin the bike on tracks so I'm not completely new to riding now I'm 6,2 190 I was contemplating what bike to get, should I go with a yz 125 or should I go with a yzf450, I would never sell the 450 prob have it forever thank you tell me your opinions plz!!

      I'm finally getting the chance to go to the dunes in Oregon and cant decide weather I should run a 8 or 10 paddle tire on the back of my 81 YZ465 2stroke. Suggestions? Pros and cons for each? Thanks!

      Hey all, let me get right to the point, basically for the past couple years I've had this bike, it hasn't been running right. It tends to start well, and has a decent amount of power for a 200+ lb kid on it, but once I attempt to hit the top of the power band, it tends to cough and sputter like it's choking. When I recently checked to carb to jet it, I realized ALL but one of the Jets are missing. I've checked the reed valves, they seem to be in great shape... However, today (it is a warm day) it ran great for a while, after topping off the oil and running with the choke half on, this bike also leaks oil, but I'm almost convinced that this is a jetting issue (being that they're missing)  at this point, but I've also never put a top end in this bike. Thanks for any help, I'd just like to get an opinion on what you guys think.   I know I'm all over the place btw, sorry for that

      I've currently got a 2016 yz250x. I love it but it's not road legal.
      I've got my motorbike license and I need a bike to ride to work. If I'm going to drop a few k on another bike, I figure I might aswell get a road legal dirtbike so I can ride on the road during the week but also ride in the state forests on the weekend.
      So my question is, what bike would suit my purpose better? The RMX or the WR? Or are there any other bikes I should be looking at? Here in australia theres about 20 times more wr's for sale then rmx's, and spare parts availabilty is easier for the wr cos they're so popular, so I'm leaning towards this, but I'm open to suggestions from others.
      Regardless of which one I got, I'd get a supermoto wheelset for it so I could just swap wheelset instead of changing tires every weekend.
      Thanks in advance

      Hey ThumperTalk. I'm new to the forum and I have some questions about a 2001 yz426 I found for sale. The guy wants $1500 but said he would work with me on the price a little. I know that's a pretty good deal. What I'm wondering is how long the motor will last me. All I'll be doing is trail riding and riding around on a farm. I have an rm125 which I love. I was looking around for an 06+ yz250, but I found this deal and I've always heard good things about the 426's. He said he recently did the valves and it has been a good reliable bike for him. So would this be a good bike for me? I just don't wanna get a 4 stroke and have to dump a ton of money into it. My 2 stroke has been bullet proof. 
      Any help would be appreciated
