WOW - looks like you've been busy - I'm sure all that investment will be worth it once it's ready to ride.

Look forward to seeing the finished bike.

Went for a long ride yesterday and ended up coming home in the dark. During my ride, the plate light went out, so I installed a new LED plate light instead of the regular type (non LED) that kept going out due to vibrations. First one I got at autozone, this one I got here :http://www.cyclegear...ight/web1006860

It only had sticky tape for mounting and I didnt want to ever have to worry about this issue again, so I may have gone overboard for such a small item, but It's definately not going to fall off or go out on me again. I managed to drill a hole through it and mounted it to the old one's bracket with a screw. The bracket is then screwed to the fender. If the glued screws fail, the zip tie should keep it in place.

'yes osifer, i got a plate light' :bonk:

Super nice job on the white out. I have a 2007 WR that is all white also. Love the look. What did you do to your head light shell? Is that paint? Also to the air box cover - how did you get that white?

How did you make the home made white graphics? I would love to do that also. Where did you get the material? It looks non home made quality.

How did you make the home made white graphics? I would love to do that also. Where did you get the material? It looks non home made quality.

I took some printer paper, taped it very tight and flat to the area's i wanted to cover, then i took a pencil and shaded

around the edges to see where i needed to cut the shapes.

The pencil should leave a much darker shade or even a line down where youll want to cut

I then cut out the printer paper with scissors, layed it back on the part i wanted to cover and trimmed a little bit to make it fit properly.

I took that paper shape and taped it to a universal number plate background and cut out the graphic with an exacto knife on a work table for more rounded edges

(scissors would also work fine though). http://www.motorcycl...WT.ac=SLIsearch

simple as that, just takes time and patience, Be forwarned that you will most definitely be crumpling up paper and throwing it at your bike...

For the swingarm I had to use a larger piece of paper i found laying around...

Also, after you have created one blank and cut out a graphic for one side of the bike, just flip it over and lay it down on the graphic for a mirror image of the other side.

(wont work for the airbox though, as both sides are different)

      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?

      Hello,
      For this summer, I was looking for a project. As a desert/trial, and occasionally single track rider from Southern California, any time of the year works for a build like this.
      I grew up riding two-stroke and after a couple years on four strokes, I want to return to the enduro king. However, KTM and Husky sell their bikes for quite a high price tag.
      So, I have decided I want to take an older two stroke motocross bike i.e. cr250, yz250, etc., and make it the ultimate desert bike for significantly less than a new KTM.
      I am not loyal to one brand, but I have always loved Honda and spent a grand a month ago on all new gear with Honda's name plastered all over it. 
      I know all the mods I want to do the bikes to make them enduro/desert ready: heavy flywheel, 18 inch rear wheel, new exhaust, steering stabilizer, etc.
      What I need help in is I don't know what bikes I can install a wide ratio transmission in. I know yz250 can take a 400 or 426 transmission, but can any other brand?
      I would like to see a cr250 with the gears of a 450x rippin through the desert. I like the steel frame for off road use, and I just need some advice on the best bike for this conversion.
      Thanks
