What did you do to your WR today?

What are you using for a start/kill switch?" Almost looks like a TTR250 combo switch.

Got finished up with the dual sport conversion,added a fender bag and have a Rekluse EXP 2.0 ready to go in and in the morning it goes in for inspection and maybe a plate in the afternoon.

how do you know when you need seals? Mine has some oil on them but doesn't seem to get worse.

when the card trick quits working and they really gush the fluid out. oh, yeah.. business card

I think you meant to say "business card", not credit card. The hard plastic credit card won't get in under the seal. Take a business card, tear off the end and poke the corner of the card up into the seal and move it sideways toward the torn edge. The torn edge will pick up and clean the dirt trapped in the seal.

A business card works but IMO 35mm film works better. Only problem being in a world of digital cameras not to many of us still have old negatives laying around. ;-)

I made these mounts for the kickstand on a 1999 YZ400 frame so I can load this frame with all my 2002 WR426 components.

Then I got the frame powder coated.

I have a light kit coming and a few other parts. When done I'll have a California plated bike.

I am preparing to sell my 2006 WR450 so I am putting her sort of back to stock removing all of the race decals and custom stuff. Just bought an 012 model so this one has to go, it has been great but the FI is awesome :cry:

How do you like that Lexx exhaust?

I actually got time to ride this weekend and WOW did this exhaust make huge difference.

Tons more bottom to mid range power !!! The front pops up when ever you want now in

1st, 2nd, 3rd and (most of the time) in 4th without clutch work. Its night and day change

from the stock exhust and sounds awesome . Best $200 I have spent so far.

Do you ride on the street a lot? If so let us know how the rear tire wears and tracks off road.

      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
