Pulled the rear subframe off and removed the linkages, shock and swingarm. It looks like the bike has been cut in half!

New rear suspension bearings, new swingarm bearings and new wheel bearings are going in.

Pulled the carby off (whilst it was easy to get to) and gave it a good internal clean.

Also removed tons of dirt from hard to reach places.

Put my Bike back together after installing a YZF pipe, rejet, and a greasing of the linkage and swing arm. Then took it for a spin on my little 5 acre track/trail. I love the new setup, it runs great! Also ordered a PCRacing Flo Filter Kit.

You gotta do what you gotta do. At least you have a oil burner to keep you going. Tuff times will pass and then you can get another one.

Welp, I sold a part from one bike via a form, got paid in paypal, and I spent the money again on stuff needed for my WR!

-New steering stem bearings (My current ones are destroyed!)

-New Grips (fancy schmancy pro-grip ones)

-New throttle Tube (Previous owner mauled the OEM one, so it's now cut down to nothing).

-New fork protectors (mine lost a fight with a tree)

I put a new Acerbis Spyder disc guard on, cleaned and greased the axle/bearings, swapped out the handlebars, added hand guards, added frame guards. Took the carb off and put the other JD needle in and swapped out the old pilot and main jets with new jets.

I spent part of the day looking for new, clear vent line (the old stuff was well, "Old"), and finally said screw it and put the old stuff back on (and ordered 25 ft of it through Motion Pro for $8.95).

Flushed out the tank, added new gas and before trying to start it noticed it was still draining gas out of the float bowl. Guessing the float/needle jet is stuck. Grrrrrrr.... So I guess I'm going to go out and doink with it some more.

So the previous owner cheese-dicked the shit out of my current WR400f with a bunch of ghetto work, and a complete lack of maintence. Part of the mistakes made included zip tieing on the rear brake reservoir right where it could melt onto the exhaust... and then get full of dirt...

I hit up Cardenas Motorsports recently to get a new rear brake lever (stock slightly bent) and a replacement rear resevoir, and went to put all of them on. When I started pumping the brake fluid through... this is what I got...

Holy schneike's batman! That's brake mud alright! I'm not even done yet... it was still coming out partly black! I'm going to get my friends mighty vac and make sure I definitely get every last little bit of it through... but WOW that's ungodly bad!!

I have done absolutely nothing since my crash. I am now finally out of a brace but my knee is sure stiff and sore. I need to add blinkers to my WR now that the state law has changed. I am thinking about just replacing the kit I have now and just going with a completely new kit. I have a ride planned for the end of January S. Utah. I hope my knee loosens up.

I installed ACD radiator guards on my 09 WR450. When I took them out of the packaging I thought, "there is no way in hell these things are gonna fit". But, an hour and half later, they were on.

      I have a 1995 yz125 2t and the thing runs pretty good, well at least it seems to have no issues but it does not need the choke to start the bike. I changed the main, idle, and needle jets all to factory specs for my temperature and altitude. The bike will start first kick when 100% cold and will start first kick when warm but it just does not need the choke. So I'm wondering if I'm hindering my bikes performance in a way because it does not need the choke. Suggestions?

      Hey guys,
      So I recently just went through the bike and replaced the exhaust cam on my 2002 yz250f with an autodecompression cam out of a 2004 model.  I then shimmed the valves, cleaned the carb, and replaced the spark plug.  Now it won't start regardless of whether or not I try to kick it or bump it.  It seems like as I keep kicking it it goes through periods of extremely high compression where it is very hard to kick and then periods of low compression where it is a little easier to kick.  Either way I can't get the bike to start.  Any ideas?

      Used PRO TAPER platform 2.3 pegs with standard height inserts. These are removed from a 2011 YZ 125 but should fit all current era YZ and YZF's. Double check before purchasing. I just sharpened the teeth up a bit with a file. These retail for $190 and most online retailers have for $170. You can buy replacement inserts that are higher or lower if desired. 
      Taken from Pro Taper's site:
      The 2.3 Platform Pegs feature a unique replaceable cleat design for unrivaled customizability. All necessary mounting hardware is included, as well as the standard magnesium-colored cleats. Replacement cleats incorporate ProTaper’s exclusive Traction Arc Design and are available in various heights, colors, and materials to directly suit each rider’s needs.

      Hello everyone, been looking around on here for a couple weeks and figured I'd finally drop my question for some feedback. Looking for a bike, obviously or I'd be on a different forum, somewhere in the 250/300 range. Heres some info about me and the typical riding I'll be doing..
      My specs: Male, 190 lbs, 5'10, 28 years old. 
      Riding Experience: Two wheel mostly street, R6, R1, Harley etc. I've ridden most of em. Off road has been mostly quad, except one trip down the trails on a Yamaha 450 2t (holy moses that was quick). Ridden quads for a few years, Polaris 850, Yamaha/Honda 250's (banshee style) at Silver Lake and on trails. Trails we ride are in Grayling which are a mix of hard pack and loose sand (tank trails). 
      Planned Riding: the above mentioned sand dunes and trails. Doubt I'll ever touch an actual Mx track. Will use a paddle tire when in the dunes. In my mind I've narrowed it down to the KTM 250/300 XCW or Yamaha YZ250X. Not really a Honda fan. 
      Not trying to open another KTM vs Yamaha thread, Ive read plenty of those. Just looking for some feedback and ensure these are the bikes I should be interested in and if 2 stroke should be my route? I like the easy maintenance but also like the idea of fuel injected 4t. I don't want to be beating the heck out of a 4t in the dunes and turn it into a bigger $ pit than these toys are already. I would prefer having a headlight, 250X does not come with one while both KTM's do (unless I go Yamaha 4t with the WR250f). Thanks for your feedback..

      I am looking for a YZ125 and have found a 99 for 1300 and an 03 for 1600 both in pretty nice condition. Obviously going to negotiate the prices down however I was wondering which one you guys would suggest. Ive been doing research and know that the 03 is lighter with a modified frame though it has a 5 speed. The 99 motor is well liked for the power and reliability.
      I will be doing strictly trail riding so whats the better option here?
