The stock graphics on my 08 WR450F were getting very shabby. I asked around and found Podium Graphix which is only an hour away from me.

I had them do a custom set for me...

I wrapped the head pipes on the WR, YZ, and...umm...the KX. We're doing some trail riding and some technical single track tomorrow. We'll see if it keeps the exhaust heat off the radiators a little.

Why not just put heat tape on the bottom of the radiator? :lol: I did and it seems to work well. :ride:

Completed my DIY AIS removal and snorkel removal.

In addition to the other "free mods", the dealer had already plugged the AIS with ball bearings, but I wanted it off completely. It was a very easy process, don't know why I waited so long and I'm glad I didn't spend the $50 on the GYTR kit. I drove the cap from an old sharpie pen into the airbox tube, filled the 90* fitting on the intake side of the head with JB Weld, and drove a used/cleaned .357 magnum casing in the 90* fitting on the exhaust side of the head.

i followed a free styler around and got in some good air time... messed up my ankle, cracked my EVS knee guard and scraped up my elbow pretty bad (left my elbow guards in the truck :lol: ) The jump wasn't anything big just really tall step up that had a vertical lip and i hit it too fast so when it tossed me i endo'd instead of landing perfect. landed on the front tire and laid it over to the left :ride:

Did your WR stall out in the water? Mine has.
If you haven't already you need to re-route the carb vent hoses to the top of your airbox.

I think you only have to put 2 of them into the airbox, the rest of them can stay down as original.

Another subject: The police want's me to reduce the sound from my bike. Do you know how to put wool into the exhaust?

(any video / pictures available on the internet?)

Correct. Only the 2 that criss-cross over the top of the carb.

drill out the rivets on your end cap. pop cap off, pack with wool, let the sparks start flying

      Just bought a new 2017 yz250fx, has about 2 hours on it and ive already done an oil change, and overall made sure everything is in good condition.
      I rode for about an hour last Saturday around a farm and than stopped to turn off the bike, about 20 minutes later I came back and started it up and now every time I rev it/ blip the throttle the bike just shuts off.
      Not only do I want to fix this so i can ride my NEW bike, I am very pissed because its brand new and ive done nothing wrong to it.
      Any help is much appreciated

      So apparently some mx fcr carbs have removable valve seats and some dont. I didnt know this and just thought mine was really stuck in there so i drilled it out. Was going to replace it anyway. But it turns out that i have the model that is not suppose to have the valve seat removed. or so i think. Is anyone aware of this difference between the same carb. Do you know where i can get another valve seat? its off a 2003 yz450f

      Hey all, recently getting into motocross again and bought a used bike from a kid who lacked on the maintenance side of things for the bike. What I have found / believe is happening is oil is leaking out of the cylinder head breather tube. Before going on my first ride with the bike I had a respectable amount of oil right in the middle of the checkered oil marks on the dip sticks. However after about 5 hours riding I checked the oil to find that it was barely even on the dip stick. I know there has been oil leaking out of the breather but could have been caused because an overflow on the oil change from the kid. I mean the bike is 8 years old maybe it is time for some top end work. On that note would a person change out the piston regardless of condition along with the rings? Is it possible the rings are just not positioned right? I would definitely do the valves while I have the bike open anyways.
       
      Any info would be greatly appreciated I just find it odd that it took 5 hours to drain, reading through other posts some guys were having puddles of oil after 20 minuets of running time.
