Stripped down most of the bike, repainted the swingarm, frame is next, then a carb cleaning and put it all back together for spring.

Just finished putting white plastic and graphics on. Grease linkage and waiting for stiffer suspension and the snow to melt.

I put her on a Battery Tender this morning, No time to ride this week.

I keep hearing about these battery tenders....I have a '06 450 and have done nothing as far as charging the battery. I ride every 3-4 weeks. Should I get me one of these things??:banghead:

Rode Saturday in the mud, slop, and slick hillclimbs without a single spill. Knew it was to good to be true and it was. On the way home a strap broke on my buddies one month old bike and it knocked my three month old bike loose and they both fell off the trailor going down the rode. luckily we were not going to fast and the damage was held to a minimum but have still ben sick about it all evening.

Too cold to ride in Utah right now, so I stripped the seat cover, colored the blue sides black, added an inch of soft foam I picked up from the upholstery place for $5, formed and shaped it with a hacksaw blade and then stapled the cover back on. Also added the yellow backgrounds/numbers I got thru Attack Graphics at Rocky Mountain ATV. I'm ready to go for a ride!

What method did you use to color the seat sides?

I used a Marks-a-lot Marker from Walmart ($1.99). I hit it twice to keep the blue from showing through. We'll see how long it holds it's color. I had bought a gripper seat from Factory Effex but wasn't impressed with the material or the stitching.

      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.

      I live in northwest Virginia (Charlottesville area)  about an hour south of DC, I am not aware of any tracks in the area that are either public (or private but allow people to ride with permission).  Does anyone know of any good tracks in my area?
