Not much help looking on line but I did get it figured out, if anyone else installs one I will say it is much easier to install with the silencer removed, shock removed, and sub-frame flipped up out of the way. Have not got a test ride out of it yet but squeezin the hydraulic clutch sure feels great...

Installed one a few years back and am still loving it. I have had no problems with it whatsoever.:thumbsup:

Kawa, did you use both spacers that came with the kit??? I did because I was afraid of it being to loose on the mount, but am now wondering if it is too much pull on the arm doesn't seem to have much free movement of the arm?

thanks

Had a flat in the front, pulled it all apart and fixed it, blew it up and went flat again. I was really careful but I guess I pinched it. Damn, looks like I will break it all down again tonight.

I'll be getting some scrilla from some freelance web work soon, and I'm getting a full suspension rebuild courtesy of PRO MOTION in Vancouver Washington. Pretty stoked to get my bikes suspension built out right!

I just bought this WR400 with CA street plate. Pretty good overall shape and runs like a champ. Has some mods done by Stroker like carb, exhaust, and suspension.

I started replacing my graphics last night. Removed the old decal off on shroud and cleaned it up. Then I got the new decal on this morning. I will have to wait for a while to replace the decals on the tank as it's still hovering around the freezing point here and my garage isn't heated. (Tank shrouds are welcome in the house, gas tanks aren't)

I also wired an external mic for my contour hd inside my helmet. (But that's not wr stuff is it?)

I installed a JD jet kit but have not removed the throttle stop and cut the grey wire yet.

it is not even the same bike after these two mods - while I don't open it up that far too often when riding the single track in the woods, the extra throttle is awesome when I'm giving it hell on a fire road or a sandy beach :thumbsup:

      For sale is my 2015 Beta 350RR. 2734 miles and 120 hours. Just had some top end work done by Sierra BMW and BETA. Fresh air filter and oil. This is an awesome dual sport bike. Or you can strip the lights and turn signals and have a single track weapon, your choice. This bike will do it all. Unfortunately, I've been riding my 2 stroke lately and don't have room or the time to maintain 2 bikes. My loss is your gain! Front tire only has a few rides on it, the rear needs to be changed. Beta's are super reliable and amazing machines that rival KTM and Husky! 

      -Forks revalved by LT-Racing for 210# rider w/gear
      -Mylers oversized radiators and bulletproof radiator guards
      -Folding ARC clutch and brake levers (I have the stock levers as well)
      -3.1 gallon tank. (I also have the stock tank)
      -Seat concepts dual sport seat (also includes the stock seat with guts foam and motoseat seat cover)
      -FMF powercore 4 with silent core/spark arrestor. I've got the stock spark arrestor as well. Racing compliant!
      -Boano racing billet brake pedal with brake tip
      -FJ Fasst co. brake clevis
      -Billet chain blocks
      -upgraded steel oil pump gears- the plastic stock ones are prone to failure
      -Force accessories case saver
      -TMD skid plate (not pictured but will be on the bike)

      Extras:
      Acerbis X-factor handguards

      extra tubes and rimlocks
      Printed and bound owners manual and service manual
      10mm billet bar risers

      It's a dirt bike so it has some cosmetic damage. Some chipped plastic and scratches on the swingarm. 

      Can send more pictures/info upon request

      I have a 1987 yamaha tt 225 that needs a new carburetor.  I've looked EVERYWHERE online and can't find an original.  Does anyone know a good replacement one I can put on it? 
    • By Code54

      Very hard to tell this one from new.  (Other than a little bit of dirt and a few minor scratches)
      VERY low hrs and easy riding  - of course it runs great
      Has both Electric Start and kick start backup (also has Pig tails for battery tender installed)
      BBR Alum. Frame cradle with skid plate (Over $150 and protects the bike – Top of the line)
      Fisher Fab House Chain guide (Factory one is known to be an issue so I replaced it with a top of the line guide – runs about $50)
      Have title in hand
      Selling for ONLY $2000 WITH the extras!!!! (yes, the price is firm and we only accept cash - no shippers or scammers...)
       
      Only reason I am selling is I want to look into buying a trials bike and don’t really need two dirtbikes.

      Amazing bike but due to family obligations it sits in my garage most of the time. The bike has maybe 5 hours on it and runs like new. It comes with a GYTR FMF silencer with spark arrestor. There are some scratches on the plastic and and pipe from trail riding but that's what it is made for and its only cosmetic. The bike has been maintained and garage kept. If you have any questions please text me at (415)three 4 two- 4 five 8 six.

      So I just did a rebuild on my 98 Yz80, and it wont start. At first, we put the gaskets on wrong, so coolant was leaking everywhere. After we fixed that, and put everything back into place again, piston went up and down smoothly, and it has great compression. The problem is, it does not want to start. Im not really sure what to do, because before, my compression was very low, so I did a rebuild, but now it still does not start. So I need help.
